Engelbert Humperdinck makes Hua Hin even more romantic with seaside concert at InterContinental Hua Hin Resort — and taste traditional recipes Thai food “Hor Mok Khun Ya”
Engelbert Humperdinck is a pop music legend. He’s known worldwide for songs such as ‘Release Me (And Let Me Love Again)’ and several other smash hits. To date the British vocalist has sold upwards of 150 million records.
To his many accomplishments, he now adds another – his first visit to Hua Hin. Ahead of a much-anticipated beachside performance on 20 August – “The Legendary Engelbert Humperdinck in Hua Hin” at InterContinental Hua Hin Resort – the singer arrived in Thailand on 18 August and, always the consummate professional, he immediately headed to Hua Hin to prepare for the show. That didn’t mean, however, there wasn’t time for a typically warm Thai welcome and chance to experience the many delights of Hua Hin.
After being officially welcomed and honoured by former deputy prime minister Mr. Suwat Liptapanlop at InterContinental Hua Hin Resort, Engelbert enjoyed contemporary Thai cuisine at Jaras Hua Hin, savouring the restaurant’s famed signature dishes including Hor Mok Khun Ya, a traditional recipe created by Khun Ya Jaraspim Liptapanlop.

Company continues its next-generation commerce push for publishers and now offers ID solutions to publishers from Google, LiveRamp and PubMatic
AnyMind Group, an end-to-end commerce enablement company, has today announced that Google’s Publisher Provided Identifier (PPID) is now integrated into and available for use on its platform for web and app publishers, AnyManager.
This follows a similar move earlier this year in integrating audience identification (ID) solutions such as LiveRamp’s Authenticated Traffic Solution and PubMatic’s Identity Hub onto AnyManager, providing publishers with a way to easily implement and use the industry’s leading ID solutions and help advertisers to better reach relevant audiences.
With third-party cookies being phased out, the advertising industry is entering a new era of commerce. Within this shift, ID solutions, such as Google’s PPID, have emerged as a viable industry alternative to third-party cookies, providing publishers and advertisers with the means to continue transactions around audiences.
Hitoshi Maruyama, Managing Director of Publisher Growth, AnyMind Group, said: “As we provide publishers across Asia with a comprehensive tech stack through a single platform, we will also continue to partner and integrate the industry’s best solutions, ultimately opening up even more ways for publishers to enter the next-generation of commerce.”
A PPID is an identifier assigned to a user by the publisher and is usually associated with login information. This identifier is then encrypted and shared with advertisers, preserving a user’s identity and privacy. Advertisers are unable to know the specific interests of a user, but can use it to determine, for example, that a user is a good potential audience for travel-related advertising, because the user frequently visits travel-related sites.
With Google’s PPID, a user will receive a server-side first-party cookie from AnyManager and this is passed as PPID to advertisers. This means that publishers do not have to build specific login functions, but instead can rely on PPID to help identify users.
Apart from ID solutions, publishers using AnyManager can tap on a range of other features including monetization from over 100+ demand sources, analytics across revenue, web, app, social media, tools that improve user engagement, speed and site build, and integrations with 3rd-party ad verification solutions and Google Analytics. Publishers can also tap on AnyMind Group’s other platforms from manufacturing and e-commerce to marketing and logistics.

AnyMind Group begins next-generation commerce move for publishers with the launch of AnyManager GAMES
AnyManager now provides web publishers with the ability to easily implement HTML5 games on their sites
AnyMind Group, an end-to-end commerce enablement company, has today announced the launch of an HTML5 game feature on its publisher platform, AnyManager, that enables web publishers to increase advertising (ad) revenue sources by implementing a variety of games on their site.
This enables publishers to increase their means of ad income without the need to develop their own games or create additional content, whilst providing users with a new point of engagement on their sites. At present, web publishers such as Okinawa Times and the Saitama Shimbun have implemented AnyManager GAMES.
With this move, the company looks to expand its publisher base and available inventory for publishers, and provide advertisers in Asia and internationally with access to a greater ad inventory pool.
Hitoshi Maruyama, Managing Director of Publisher Growth, AnyMind Group, said: “We’re entering the age of next-generation commerce, where business can be done through a single platform, is borderless and open, and data can be utilized and maximized freely across traditionally siloed business functions. We have empowered publishers in Asia for the past five years through our constantly growing suite of solutions, and we will continue to move the needle for innovation to bring more growth to publishers.”
At present, AnyMind Group provides one of the widest offerings for web and app publishers. Its AnyManager platform is connected to 100+ demand sources, and contains features such as revenue, site, app, Core Web Vitals and social media analytics, Progressive Web Apps and push notification management, the ability to create and deliver Instagram Story-like content, and Accelerated Mobile Pages management.
Web and app publishers respectively need just a single ad tag (AnyManager Tag Service) or software development kit (AnyManager SDK) to receive advertising demand, including header bidding. Additionally, AnyManager is integrated with various ID solutions (including LiveRamp’s Authenticated Traffic Solution and PubMatic’s Identity Hub), 3rd-party ad verification solutions (including Adloox and IAS), and site analytics solutions (including Google Analytics).
On top of that, publishers can also tap on AnyMind Group’s “Brand Commerce” offerings such as AnyX (e-commerce management), AnyLogi (logistics management) and AnyChat (conversational commerce), to create and launch their own direct-to-consumer brands and products.

CapitaLand Investment Limited’s (CLI) wholly owned lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott) is acquiring a freehold asset in Tokyo, Japan via the Ascott Serviced Residence Global Fund (ASRGF), Ascott’s private equity fund with Qatar Investment Authority. The asset will be refurbished to introduce Ascott’s first lyf-branded coliving property in the city. The acquisition follows Ascott’s signing of over 7,500 units in 1H 2022, a 32% increase compared to the same period last year.
Ascott has also opened 20 properties with more than 4,500 units in 1H 2022, a 56% year-on-year (y-o-y) increase in units. In addition, Ascott has recently completed its acquisition of Oakwood Worldwide (Oakwood) in July 2022, expanding its portfolio by about 15,000 units to over 153,000 units across over 900 properties. The newly signed and opened properties as well as the addition of Oakwood will further boost Ascott’s recurring fee income.
The 140-unit coliving property to be named lyf Ginza Tokyo is ASRGF’s fourth acquisition in 2022, deploying close to S$400 million across four countries in under five months. Slated to open in June 2023, lyf Ginza Tokyo is set to meet the lodging demand of conglomerates and start-ups located nearby and cater to leisure travellers visiting the capital city. With the acquisition of lyf Ginza Tokyo, ASRGF will hold 12 properties with over 2,300 units across 91 countries.
Mr Kevin Goh, CLI’s Chief Executive Officer for Lodging, said: “Ascott has completed our acquisition of Oakwood, and achieved strong organic growth in 1H 2022 with the addition of newly signed and opened properties across our brands. This allows us to build upon our recurring fee income stream. We have kicked-off the integration of Oakwood with Ascott, placing us in a stronger position to drive further growth, deliver higher returns to our property owners and offer better experiences to our guests.”
