Speaking at a special iftar or the breaking of fast for 100 children and care-takers from the homes, Christina said: “We all know Ramadan is a holy month where Muslims practice patience and tolerance through fasting. It is a time for forgiveness, and where doing kind deeds and helping the less fortunate are strongly encouraged.”

“It is in this spirit of Ramadan, that our team at Guardian Malaysia is delighted to be given the opportunity to join hands with Reckitt Benckiser to raise funds for the two homes which are providing care and shelter to nearly 100 children.”

“For our Muslim customers, this charity campaign enables them to share and give to the less fortunate when shopping for their festive and daily needs of essential items, such as hygiene-related products,” she added.

Marketing Director of Reckitt Benckiser, Malaysia and Singapore, Ms Tiffany Tang speaking at the same event, said: “By working with Guardian, we would reach out to the millions of customers who shop at Guardian stores throughout the country, and on-line. We agree fully with Christina that many customers would welcome the opportunity to do charity while shopping for the upcoming Raya celebrations.”

After an eventful day of sharing and shopping, each child also took home a bag of Dettol products worth RM50.

Learning the Basics of a Time Honored Activity

Before video games and computers were invented, people created activities to keep themselves amused.  These games allowed people to have fun with friends and family members while also spending time in warm and sunny weather.

When you want to bring back the appeal and enjoyment of games that people decades ago played, you may want to learn more activities like horseshoes, the official cornhole game, and other pastimes that people used to indulge in before the advent of technology.  You can discover the rules, layout, and other details about it by going online now.

The Rules and Setup of Cornhole

The cornhole toss game may also be called bean bag toss, tailgate toss, baggo, or simply bags depending on where you live.  It is a popular game because it is simple for people of all ages to play and easy to win points in without being overly competitive.

To play the game, you have to set up the board on a flat surface.  The board itself comprises of several different holes, all of which are worth various points.  You determine the point value of each hole on the game board.

As its name implies, you toss the bean bags into the holes on the board.  You aim for the holes with the higher point values but can also make up your score by aiming for and hitting the holes with lesser points as well.  Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
check out the website by click on the link for detail, photo credit to

Making the Board and Bags

If you want to make your own cornhole toss game, it is important that you know the dimensions and layout of the board.  The website tells you how large the board must be.  You can use the measurements to cut out and put together a board that fits those requirements.

You can also use the information to make bean bags that you can use to play the game.  The bags should be light enough to throw yet weighted enough to ensure that they hit their targets.  The website tells you how to put the bags together.

Old-fashioned games can be the highlight of any outdoor picnic or gathering.  You do not need to rely on technology to keep everyone amused.  You can use games that people have enjoyed for decades.  The website tells you how to get started and what rules to follow when playing.

As this year marks the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between New Zealand and Malaysia, an entourage of 7 Maori business leaders from the food and beverage, dairy, seafood and tourism sectors are connecting with government and business leaders in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and Singapore from 13-18 May 2017. On 15 May 2017, the congregation paid a visit to the Taste New Zealand Fair at Jaya Grocer, The Starling Mall and also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) introducing a new dairy product, Miraka!

New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner to Malaysia and Brunei, Mr Matt Ritchie, said: “Malaysia is one of our top 10 trading partners and the visit coincides with this year marking the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between New Zealand and Malaysia. Our two countries have a history of friendly and constructive links and our relationship continues to grow. We have strong ties in trade, security and education, and we want to build on our strengths in areas like food and beverage which offers huge potential to consumers.” 

The Maori are very particular about culture and etiquette, often having cultural dances,  Te Pūoro Māori (meaning: Maori music), a cultural performance that integrates dance, poetry and song (Waiata).

“Māori place great importance on relationships. The Māori business leaders visiting Malaysia are seeking to forge enduring partnerships and to reconnect and strengthen existing relationships with their Malaysian counterparts.” 

The Maori economy is estimated to be worth of $42 billion and contributes $11 billion to 
New Zealand GDP.

Linguists believe that the Malay and Maori language belong in the category of ‘Austronesian Languages’, having the common origin thousands of years ago. The Maori language shares similarities words with the Malay language. Examples as below :-

 It's good that we can learn each other language, I do find them similar, what do you think?

With Internet access, we can easily access to online social media and online shopping website namely the HiShop Malaysia. It's an online website for you to find beauty, skincare and health products, the website is easy to browse and shop online. Now let's check out what I have got from HiShop Malaysia.

The URIAGE Eau Thermal Micellar Water Skincare products, do you know that URIAGE THERMAL WATER is water for the skin? It's because it acts in perfect osmosis with your skin. Because Uriage Thermal Water is soothing, hydrating and one of the most active of its kind, the Uriage Dermatological Laboratories combined it with the effectiveness of highly cleansing micelles. The non-ionic surfactants in micelles act like magnets that effectively trap make-up and impurities.

You can check out the video above of me using the URIAGE Eau Thermal Micellar Water for makeup remover. Removing makeup and cleansing skin are essential because to any skincare routine. Pollution, make-up and sebum accumulate, making our skin dull and lacklustre.
before and after of using the URIAGE Eau Thermal Micellar Water

How to use? Soak a cotton with Thermal Micellar Water and gently wipe it delicately over the face, eyes and neck to remove-makeup and cleanse quickly with no rinsing.

To keep your skin looking radiant and comfortable, Uriage Dermatological Laboratories treat your skin to innovative URIAGE Thermal Micellar Water to remove-makeup and cleanse face and eyes adapted to all skin types.
At Heart of The Formulas:
Trap - make up,
Cleanse the skin
REINFORCES the cutaneous barrier
HYDRATES intesely
PROTECTS the skin
SOOTHES sensations of tightness
I like the No-Rinsing URIAGE Thermal Micellar Water to remove make-up and cleanse face and eyes.

The Thermal Micellar Water has three range to choose from:
Thermal Micellar Water - Combination to Oily Skin
Thermal Micellar Water PNS -   Normal to Dry Skin
Thermal Micellar Water PSR - Skin prone to Redness 

My skin has prone to redness especially near my lips area from time to time. So I decided to choose the one that is suitable for me to use.The bottle is 100ml and I used 3 cotton pads on my face and eyes and lips area as you can see in Youtube. The product is does not irritate my skin and I didn't feel uncomfortable after using it. It doesn't sting my skin.
URAIGE Ceme Lavante (50ml) cleansing creme for face

Just squeeze the adequate amount to use and lather on wet face. I like it, it has a nice scent and cleanse deeply to my skin.I find that squeeze small amount will be enough to use.
URIAGE Thermal Water

4 No-Brainer Ways to Survive Your First Year of College

No-brainer means common sense things that you really shouldn’t have to think about. However, sometimes, when life is a bit too hectic, you forget to stop and think. This article, for all college beginners, details 4 no-brainer ways to survive your first year of college.

Learn to Cook for Yourself 
Cooking for yourself is a big part of being a responsible, independent adult. To survive, you need to learn how to do for yourself, but most college students have a reputation for living off of ramen noodles and cheap microwave dinners. Crockpot meals and single pot dinners are big hits with cook-for-yourself college students. You can grab inexpensive ingredients, throw them together in a soup, chili, or stew, and eat well for a week on what you’ve made. No mess, no fuss.

Stash Cash for a Rainy Day 
College students with loans commonly get a leftover amount in a check at the end of their school year. However, instead of spending that cash on nonsense that you don’t need, stash your cash for a rainy day. Not literally, but a time when you really need it. You never know when an extra hundred bucks will come in handy. You should also look into getting a part-time job to pay for school and everyday expenses.

Refurbished or Secondhand is Best 
The allure of brand new electronics is a powerful one, but resist if you can. Instead of grabbing thousands of dollars of new high-tech gadgets, go with a refurbished Panasonic Toughbook. Or, shop secondhand for gently used electronics for your schoolwork. These tech gadgets still work perfectly, and a cosmetic scratch or two is easily covered with your favorite decals or custom stickers.

Stay Away from Obviously Bad Influences 
In some ways, your first year of college can resemble high school, with cliques and possible conflicts around every corner. However, you can survive the first year of peer pressures and ridiculous behaviors by staying away from obviously bad influences. If someone never goes to class and prefers to constantly party, that’s someone you should probably avoid. Parties are great, and it’s good to go every once in a while. But know your limits, because you have a future to think about.

The above-mentioned quartet of college survival tips are no-brainers. You should work hard, think smart, and avoid the negatives. Easy-peasy. If you ever find yourself caught up in the parties and nonchalance of cliché college life, refer to the list above and reset your mindset.

Cheap and Effective Tips for Relaxing This Summer

With the summer quickly approaching, everyone's trying to come up with ways to take advantage of the nice weather and relaxing atmosphere. Although it's typical for families to take vacations during the summer, is there anything else that the season has to offer? As it happens, there are actually quite a few unique ways you can relax in the summer, and most importantly, none of them are terribly expensive. If you've been struggling to come up with your own unique ideas for something to do this summer, then this is the article for you.

Renovate Your House 
People may use the spring to clean their house, but what about renovating it? With the hot summer weather fast approaching, now is the time to start thinking about changing all of the things you're uncomfortable with about your current home setup. Is your house too warm? Then it might be time to get an air conditioner installed. Is your house actually too cold? Then you might want to consider a water heater installation Gloucester VA. Companies like Comfortable Climate specialize in helping clients adapt to changing circumstances and can ensure that a job gets done before the new weather rolls in. Once your house is set up to your specific preferences, you'll find it incredibly difficult to ever leave your house again.

Create a Mood Mist 
If you're bored around the house, why not try to create your own scent? By taking certain oils and aroma extracts, you can create your own unique scent to help control your mood and put you in a happier place. Perhaps best of all, creating your own "mood mist" doesn't actually require a hefty investment, and it's sure to help you get relaxed over the course of the summer. In fact, experimenting with different scents and smells could be a fun hobby to take up over throughout the summer. Homemade Kites When is the last time you flew a kite? As we grow older, we tend to things for granted, like how fun and relaxing it can be to simply let the wind glide a piece of fabric in the air. If you haven't flown a kite in a while, then this summer is the perfect time to make your own kite and give it a shot.

Although these tips can help you get into a relaxing mood, they can't force you to stay relaxed. For that, you'll need to help yourself. Hopefully, by following these tips, you'll be able to find a happier place and stay there mentally throughout the summer.
