-EDUCATE FOR LOVE-

Yesterday, I took time off to attend a meaningful event, it's related to poor family, orphanage and education for children. The Giving Bank joint hand and forces with Creight Event & Services
and the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development aims to support the less fortunate children to school in year 2018.

A community educational fund raising project, organized by The Giving Bank together with Creight Event & Services and the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development has organized an event under the theme of “Fashion for Love”. With a slogan, “Supporting Children to School”.

Is education so important??? We believe so.

These children are from a poor family background and their parents could not afford to send their kids to school. Because these kids are not being exposed to education, the chances of them learning and being able to feed themselves or being independent is relatively low. The cycle of poverty and the relation to being a less fortunate will never end and it will continue for generations to come.
The only way to fight this is to give the children hope, giving them an equal chance of education exposure, grow up well and leading them to decent employment. With such, the scenario will change to a positive structure.
 
Knowledge is Power. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Help those who need help in their education. Only by doing this will society progress, become harmonious and stable., said Dr. Janson Ang Founder of The Giving Bank.

The project is held with a simple objective. The mission is to raise funds from the public community to serve and cater 300 multi racial children in need. We believe everyone deserves an equal right to education. Going to school and seeking education is a very important element at every stage of growth. This will give the child hope and a chance to experience something that they’ve never experienced before and help them become useful members of the society. We are here together, to bring love and happiness to these children. We want to bring joy to them. We want this to be special and meaningful. We want them to know that many people out there are loving them.

We have started to build the team and its formation gearing towards the total planning since August 2017, and we have arrived to a stage in having our Press Conference yesterday gearing towards the main highlight in October 8th 2017 at HGH Convention Centre said Mr. Simon Goh, Founder of Creight Events.

We are raising the educational funds, and it will lead to the official giving ceremony. The solicitation of this total campaign will go to the respective schools having the headmaster and school PIBG committees to monitor. The beneficiaries of these 300 children will be able to use the funds to pay for their school fees, or to purchase items such as books, stationaries, school uniforms, school bags and shoes.

We have carefully picked and have selected 12 schools in total to work with and they are as below :
(1) SJKC Bukit Tangga
(2) SJKT Bukit Beruntung
(3) SK Bukit Beruntung
(4) SJKC Kalumpang
(5) SJKC Kerling

Guardian Malaysia helps upgrade 10 charity homes as part of 50th Aniversary celebration

Guardian Malaysia, the leader in health and beauty retaining, is marking its 50th anniversary with a RM250,000 community project to upgrade the facilities of 10 charity homes in the country.
Thanks to Guardian Malaysia for inviting me to visit one of the charity homes at Kuala Lumpur.

These homes, seven of which are orphanages, are located near to Guardian outlets in various parts of the country. Most of them have requested for repairs, upgrading and refurbishment of living quarters.

In addition to a budget of RM250,000, Guardian Malaysia has also encouraged its staff to volunteer their time to help in the improvement works, and to spend some quality time with the children.
Speecn by Chief Executive Officer of Guardian Health and Beauty Sdn Bhd (Guardian Malaysia), Mr. Soren Lauridsen on the right

Leading example, is Chief Executive Officer of Guardian Health and Beauty Sdn Bhd (Guardian Malaysia), Mr. Soren Lauridsen. Leading a team from Guardian's store support office and Guardian stores, he spent time on 15 September helping to repaint the gates, perimeters walls and grilles of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary, in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary, has got 55 residents aged from 1 years old to 18 years old). It's a non-profit organization for children from poor families, dysfunction families, single parents and full orphans. Makeover on this home including installation of polycarbonate rain cover awning, mosquitoes net for all the windows, beautify the living room, installation of air-conditioners and wall fans.

Over the years, Guardian has been extending aid and assistance through various forms. Often its financial contributions, other times, its donation in kind and through fun and cheer. This year, as Guardian Malaysia is celebrating our 50th anniversary, we decided to extend greater support to those living close to where we operate."

"We asked our teams at the stores to recommend charity homes in their neighbourhood which needed repairs or improvements, but were short of funds. We picked 10 homes where we see our contributors as making a meaningful difference."

"By helping to improve the living quarters of these children, orphans and the elderly, we believe we are empowering them to be more confident and eventually become self-sufficient." Mr. Lauridsen added.

Here's the list of 10 homes makeover programme started last month, and it is scheduled to be completed by this November. The other recipient homes are as following:

16 September 2017

It's a busy Saturday, yeah early morning 5.30am I am awake then called the kids up at 6am. By 6.30am to be ready to go Cold Storage Kids Grow & Glow Run. It's first time Cold Storage have this event and kids have a good time at the event. Our first time to One Park too. Happy that my dear not working the day as he bring us along to go. One Park is just opposite One Utama Shopping Centre. Just park inside the mall and walk out there's the park. My dear knows where to park and he parked basement of GSC Cinema. I forgot to take the bag which I have packed the clothing inside to the car. I took the shoes bag and the food bag but not the clothes in bag that I plan that we changed before head to next shopping mall. Well since I left it at home and the event in morning ended early so I suggest to go home first. Sis-in-law and nephew are at home, we also bought food for them.

The morning start with 9yrs old to 12 yrs old fun run and three Challenge for each category.

Challenge 1: Master Your Balancing Act
Challenge 2: Conquer The Height
Challenge 3: Choose your Destiny.

Anyway my children love all the challenges especially little one, he went twice for the Challenge 1. He loves it and he's so happy just watch the 1st video above. It's a nice park to walked, some people bring their pet dog at the parked for a walk. The participants of the Cold Storage are all wearing the shirts, the children will have tags on their hand. The tag will be cut and remove for redemption of medal and goodie bag. The goodie bag with mineral water and voucher to redeem rest of goodie, need to go one by one of the booth to queue up for redemption. Some fun games available and others. The park has a lake that we can see turtles inside. So fun that we plan to go again next year! Good family time together and it's priceless bonding moments with loved ones.

It's a long day indeed for us. After the event at about 1015am we left and dear went to buy food while we waited in the car in Damansara. Then we headed home, shower then eat and then we are out again for Jalan Jalan Japan at 1 Shamelin Mall. The 1 Shamelin Mall is not near us, thanks to dear that drive and we followed the waze to reach there. The parking at 1 Shamelin Mall is RM2 per entry. Event starts from 12noon to 3pm for Jalan Jalan Japan. Well look out as will blog it soon as Jalan Jalan Japan will be opened to public from 30 September 2017.

Putra LRT Subang Jaya to SOGO KL

It's Saturday, just coincidence that son does not have tuition so I tag him along to the Sogo KL for the DC Comics Super Heroes. It's our first time to go there, we took LRT, it cost RM4.10 for a pax, one way. When reach Masjid Jamek, we walk about 10 minutes to reach the mall we didn't know the way and I was looking at the Google Map too. The event starts time table 230pm to 430pm, we reached before 2pm and had lunch ourselves. The refreshment provided at event was cake, sweets and mineral water.

 The LRT Station if take from SS15 Subang jaya would takes 16 stations to reach Masjid Jamed. I didn't know that we can go to Bandaraya LRT. So next time can just from SS15 Subang Jaya to Putra Height then from there change train to Bandaraya. It is direct reach from there. So the journey I took with son was longer than usual I think.

Lots to see and shop at DC Comics Super Heroes but we didn't buy anything as we went there for the event. At Sogo, I find out that the Teh Tarik Place would only serve Roti Telur or Roti Kaya at 3 pm, which is consider hot plates at the menu.

It's a lot of walking on Saturday and when we back time is raining too. Lucky I have an umbrella for each of us. It was great outing with son as he didn't take LRT for a long time, as for youngest son not yet bring him as it's a long tiring journey. It's packed in LRT so don't think he will be feeling comfortable.

Many people heading to MATTA Fair too, well we didn't go as didn't play to purchase any package at the moments. Though we love to have a family vacation stay. Busy lifestyle and glad to spend a good day with my son as seldom we have a travel together by public transport. I thought of driving but then I am not good with the directions and I saw waze showed 40minutes to reach.

Not much choice of restaurants I see at the SOGO, KL so son and me had a quick lunch at McD.

How to Express Yourself at Work Without Being Disrespectful

It seems like there are new debates and conversations in the breakroom on a daily basis. And sometimes, while you would love to join in on the discussions, you can’t help but steer clear because you know that you can get pretty heated with your opinions. Fortunately, there are methods to learning how to express yourself at work without being disrespectful.

Follow Rules and Workspace Guidelines

Remember that there are rules and guidelines in place in every workspace. From discrimination laws, to common courtesies, you should take care to follow the rules and secured regulations of your office to avoid being disrespectful or downright hateful.

Be Aware of Others and Their Beliefs

The world does not, and has never, revolved around you and your beliefs. And no one else is any different. However, your opinions, like everyone’s, matter, so respect and be aware of others and their beliefs. Why? Because they should respect and be aware of yours.

Keep Your Opinions to Yourself Unless Asked for Them

When you are in an obvious discussion with someone, then you can express yourself and let your opinions fly in a respectful manner. However, when others are talking amongst themselves, don’t jump in with your opinions just because you felt the need to add your two cents. Wait to be invited and included into the conversation.

Avoid Getting Drawn into Gossip

Did you hear about so-and-so and what she did over the weekend? Or, how about this person from HR and the terrible mistake he made? Your viewpoint should be, “who cares.” Gossip is hurtful, regardless if the person you are talking about knows or not. The workplace, as you know, is rife with gossip, so steer clear of these conversations whenever possible.

Make Friends and Discuss Your Interests, Passions, and Goals

Chances are good that there are dozens of like-minded people in your office that share the same interests, passions, and goals as you. Don’t be afraid to make friends. Use your amazing conversation skills and open-book mentality to connect and interact with your coworkers. Then, if you feel comfortable, strive to take that friendship out of the office for a chance at a long-term pal.

Having debates, conversations, and expressing your opinion in an office setting can be a controversial, and even taboo, idea. However, by remembering to be respectful, you can dabble in workspace expression, and make a few friends along the way. When you can, make friends. Invite your coworkers to celebrations and fun events. Go big with a Chicago limo rental, or find some fancy way to have a great time with good people from your work atmosphere.

12 Things That Happy Women Do

To lead a happy life, one should be involved in various self-care habits. These are 12 tips for a woman to enjoy health and wellness.

Avoid any stress
Stress usually happens when you have a lot on your plate. When there are too many things going on in your life, it can put you under a lot of stress. Furthermore, greater the amount of stress ; greater is the risk of heart disease, infertility, diabetes, depression, anxiety, premature death and accelerated ageing.
1. Stress is a major reason why you get frequent headaches. Stress management is crucial for the betterment of your health, and it also makes you more productive in the long term. All we can do is find ways that make you feel relaxed and at peace and just stick to the ways.


Completely avoid dieting
There is no assurance that dieting will make you lose weight. As per research, 95% people tend to fail at diets.
2. It is not a matter of self-control but what prevents you from losing weight are biological changes taking place, as per researcher Traci Mann. Apparently, Traci has studied dieting for over a period of 20 years.

3. While it may be possible lose weight initially, you are most likely to regain the weight you lose eventually. The thing which works is making changes in your current diet. Making wise choices like substituting fresh foods for processed foods will be beneficial in the long term.

Quit smoking
When you quit smoking, the damage done to your health is cured.
4. Smoking increases your risk of heart diseases and lung cancer and also affects the health of your babies. Furthermore, smoking significantly affects breast cancer. Smokers are 30% more prone to get breast cancers as compared to non-smokers.
There is a higher risk of stillbirth in cases of pregnant women who work or live around smokers.

Start family planning early
The fertility of female declines with her age, and there exist many pregnancy complications when a woman gets pregnant at an older age. Therefore, if you’re planning to have kids, you should start planning at the earliest. In case you feel that you are infertile, then you should talk to a fertility specialist about this situation. Freezing your eggs and in vitro fertilisation (IVF) are two option which can treat infertility, depending upon the cause.

Always use sunscreen under the sun
The majority of women have a deficiency of vitamin D. Vitamin D is responsible for absorbing calcium in the human body, as per Dr. Michael Lim, a who is a cardiologist at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. Other than that, Vitamin D also lowers the risk of heart attack and diabetes and improve bone health.
5. Fortunately, the deficiency of vitamin D deficiency isn’t a major problem for people living in sunny Singapore. All you should do is bask in the sun for 15 – 20 minutes every day. If you’re planning to spend more than 15 – 20 minutes in the sun, then make sure you apply a nice sunblock. Being overexposed to the sun could put you at an increased risk of skin cancer or melanoma.

Start taking calcium pills
Women mostly have a deficiency of some nutrients. To combat this issue, taking supplements is a convenient and safe way. However, one shouldn’t consume too many calcium pills as they can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Moreover, it can also increase the possibility of kidney stones, as per Dr. Michael Lim, a who is a cardiologist at Mount Elizabeth Hospital.

Get enough rest
Sleeping well isn’t about the number of hours but the quality of sleep you get. As per studies, females face difficulty in falling and staying asleep as compared to males.
6. According to research women who suffer from insomnia have a greater risk of health problems as compared to men. They also have an increased risk for depression, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.
If you’re unable to sleep for 7 – 9 hours, then you need to seek medical help.

exercise often, doesn't matter indoor or outdoor
Do weight exercises
Apparently, cardio is not enough for women; they also need to indulge in weight-bearing exercises which improve their bone health and also increase their bone mass. It also decreases the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes7 and osteoporosis. Moreover, weight lifting does not just mean lifting weights; it also refers to activities like hiking, dancing, racquet sports, aerobics, and tennis. Walking, elliptical training machines or stair-step machines are some of the beneficial low-impact exercises.

See the doctor regularly Women should get regular health check-ups done, especially from a gynecologist. Early detection of any health issue is the key to complete recovery. Tests like pap smears and pelvic exams should happen at least once in 2 years from the time you turn 21. Whereas, and breast examination should be done once a year after you turn 40.



It’s also helpful to be outgoing and social.
Studies have proved that social relationships play a significant role in the health and longevity of women. Being socially active is known to protect your cognitive functions. Whereas, the lack of social ties can lead later-life cognitive decline, depression and increased mortality.
8. Lack of social relationships enhances the risk of premature death by 50%, which is equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Furthermore, it’s worse than physical inactivity and obesity. You have every reason to plan nights out with your friends and family!

Keep your mind busy
As per Dr. Lee Kim En, a neurologist at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, there’s a sudden increase in the number of people diagnosed with dementia. In Singapore, the number people aged 65 years and above who would suffer would from dementia will reach 53,000 by 2020, and this will further increase to 187,000 by 2050.
9. Activities like quitting smoking and exercising can make a significant difference in our bodies. Apparently, doing this delays not only neurological changes but also makes our body better equipped to handle said changes.
10. One should find hobbies that stimulate both you as well your brain. Some of these include–playing an instrument, learning a language, trying new cuisines and dancing.

Pay attention to your mental health
Women are nearly twice more likely to suffer from depression than men.
11. Women shouldn’t be embarrassed to seek professional help. Seeking the help of a professional is the greatest favour you can do to yourself.

Signed jerseys by Faiz Subri, Brand Ambassador of NIVEA MEN and winner of the FIFA Puskas Award 2016, to be exchanged between 11street and NIVEA MEN to commemorate the partnership.


I took some time off to attend this event as I love sports and I like Nivea products. As blessed as we are with the tropical weather in Malaysia, we also endure humidity, which can be unpleasant when we sweat a tad too much. Today, leading skin care brand for men, NIVEA MEN, showcased its NIVEA MEN Cool Powder Deodorant on 11street, and a nationwide promotion from yesterday until 15 September 2017. If you are thinking of gift ideas, why not consider this as gift for men?


Along with its brand ambassador and winner of the 2016 FIFA Puskás Award, Mohd Faiz Subri, NIVEA MEN endeavours to pave the way to instant cooling sensation, comfort of powder, and provide long-lasting dryness even under the most testing situation, for all Malaysian men.

Adding more variety for male shoppers

Chief Operating Officer of 11street, Chuljin Yoon said: “Late last year, we learned that men who have never shopped online would be twice more likely to shop for products online this year. Based on our year-to-date comparison between 2016 and 2017, we have already seen a two-fold increase in the purchase of men personal care products on 11street. As such, now that 2017 has beckoned, our partnership with NIVEA MEN will not only solidify our revelation, but also show how men these days make careful selection of their daily personal care products.”


Echoing the sentiment, Country Manager of Beiersdorf Malaysia and Singapore, Ng Hock Guan explained: “NIVEA MEN would like to inspire men to take charge of their personal care, and to empower them to bring out the champion in themselves. Through this collaboration with 11street, we want to introduce men to the NIVEA MEN Cool Powder Deodorant that provides instant cooling sensation, comfort of powder, long-lasting dryness, and that includes smelling good!”


The Power of the Powder

In two applicator formats – roll-on and spray – the NIVEA MEN Cool Powder Deodorant is enriched with micro powder particles and leverages a powerful sweat control system to provide a dry yet non-sticky feeling throughout the day.

As the brand ambassador for NIVEA MEN, Faiz Subri, who gained international fame with his unforgettable free-kick for Penang against Pahang in the Malaysian Super League 2016 said: “My life as an athlete requires me to be at the top of my game. I train hard to give only my best performance to my team and country, and along with that, comes the challenge of staying cool and fresh. Thanks to NIVEA MEN Cool Powder Deodorant, I can focus on my game and leave the sweat and odour control to this remarkable deodorant.”

BRAND'S Feed Your #MINDANDBODY Media Launch

FEED THE MIND AND BODY RIGHT FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE AND GENERAL WELL-BEING

“You are what you eat” is a commonly used phrase by parents and nutritionists as the food one eats has a bearing on one’s state of mental, emotional and physical health, which directly impacts your overall well-being.


Getting the fundamentals of human nutrition right can ensure that you have the mental focus and concentration for improved productivity, helps you cope with stress better, and gives your body the energy to carry you through the day’s activities.




However, providing our mind and body with the right nutrition is often neglected because of hectic lifestyles that determine when or what we eat, rather than what we need.


Therefore, leading health food supplement brand, BRAND’S® is reminding Malaysians to feed their mind and body to ensure that they are living life to their fullest potential by always performing at their best regardless of age.
“Eating right to ensure the mind and body performs at its optimum level needs to be a lifelong habit where conscious effort is made to incorporate a good diet and nutrition regardless of age whether you are a young student, working professional, busy mother or enjoying your golden years,” said consultant dietitian and founder of her own nutrition clinic Indra Balaratnam at the BRAND’S® “Feed Your Mind And Body” panel discussion today.


The nutritionist emphasized that consuming the right food, following a balanced diet and getting proper rest not only gives you energy and mental clarity but also puts you in the right emotional frame of mind to help manage stress better.

Joining Indra at the panel discussion moderated by host Adrian Seet was the multi-talented
Cheryl Lee – 988 FM radio host, actress, singer and lyricist – and top students,
18-year old Yang Chong Sheng and Lee Zhi Xuan who both sat for their SPM examinations last year.


“While I do enjoy my work and taking on new projects, sometimes when my schedule becomes too hectic, it leaves me feeling stressed and tired. I know that it is important to nourish the body so that I don’t feel fatigued and am able to keep going through the long hours,” shared Lee.




Meanwhile, students Yang and Lee acknowledged that a healthy mind and body, combined with a positive attitude lets them perform at their best on a daily basis to achieve great heights in both their studies and extra-curricular activities.


Both are recipients of the BRAND’S® SMART Achievers Awards, an annual programme that recognises the outstanding performance of students who excel in both their studies and co-curricular activities. They are part of a group of 24 students who were rewarded with cash prizes for excelling in their PT3, SPM, STPM and university examinations last year.


Neuroscientist Dr. Jack Wong Jin Lin, who is also a senior scientist at BRAND’S® Suntory International, shared the science behind the iconic green capped bottle of chicken essence and explained how it reduces physical tiredness, improves mental concentration and maintains
emotional well-being.


“Increased blood circulation and oxygen flow to the brain and body keeps mental and physical fatigue away, while reducing anxiety and stress hormone, cortisol, so that the ability to stay alert or focus is not affected,” said Dr. Jack Wong.



“BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken is a natural food supplement with no added salt and is cholesterol and fat free, making it suitable for daily consumption to help fuel the mind and body,” added Dr. Wong.


A trusted name with a heritage of over 180 years that continues to improve over time through R&D, BRAND’S® Essence Of Chicken is the only chicken essence in the market backed by over 40 international scientific papers and clinical studies. Results have shown that regular consumption improves memory by up to 15% and enhances concentration by 22%, while metabolism can be increased by up to 16%.


As part of the BRAND’S® “Feed Your Mind And Body” awareness initiative, BRAND’S® has committed to nourish the minds and bodies of Malaysians nationwide with the distribution of
100,000 bottles of BRAND’S® Essence Of Chicken.


Running from July until the end of August, the sampling team will visit high traffic locations including LRT stations, office buildings, shopping malls, universities and toll plazas.
