Vinda Deluxe ‘Stay Strong Malaysia' Campaign


Good day to all my readers and visitors. Today is the first day of UPSR exam, all the best to boys and gals who are having the examination. Also good luck to my son who is having his first Chinese papers exam. Speaking of exam, I also give my son Vinda Deluxe tissue to bring to school. It's daily basis that he needs to bring tissues to school as he can use for after meal use and other convenience.

Sharing is caring, Vinda Deluxe continues to celebrate strength in various forms with the unveiling of “Stay Strong, Malaysia: Bersama Kita Bersihkan Tanahair Kita” campaign, held in conjunction with Malaysia Day at Sunway Pyramid from 14-17 September. Working with Malaysian cartoonist Zunar, the event spotlights a first-of-its-kind largest comic artwork drawn on Vinda Deluxe tissues, reflecting the rise of a ‘new’ Malaysia and Malaysians’ strong passion for a bright future. This innovative use of tissue highlights the Extra Strong feature of Vinda Deluxe tissues. 


“Vinda Deluxe is synonymous with strength, and this latest effort underscores our ongoing promise to Stay Strong For You through every situation and circumstance. In the past we celebrated strength in relationships with Malaysia’s first tissue wedding gown, created exclusively for a real-life couple’s special day. Today, in solidarity with all Malaysians, we are excited to bring strength to life in another form, through the “Stay Strong, Malaysia: Bersama Kita Bersihkan Tanahair Kita” campaign. Zunar’s creation demonstrates the strength of Vinda Deluxe tissues while calling for Malaysians to stand firm in their dream of making a positive change. His unique perspective to the campaign also reflects our brand promise, that Vinda Deluxe will Stay Strong for You, just as Malaysians stay strong for one another,” said Evelyn Chan, Marketing Director, Vinda Group Southeast Asia.

A cartoonist who has been drawing editorial cartoons for over 20 years and known among many as an advocate for truth and transparency in the country, Zunar’s original creation is hand-drawn on Vinda Deluxe tissues measuring 16 feet by eight feet, making it the nation’s largest comic art on tissue.


“Malaysia is going through an unprecedented chapter in our nation’s history; we stood strong and played our part, but what comes next? We have achieved a ‘new’ Malaysia but it’s now time for Malaysians to look deep inside and think about what else needs to be done. My artwork reflects the urgent need for us to tackle the root of our problems, cutting them off if necessary, so that we can grow new shoots that are strong and positive. I hope this campaign serves as an inspiration for all Malaysians to uproot all our bad habits so we can remain strong and united, and create a country that is cleaner and better for all,” said Zunar.


Speaking on his experience drawing on Vinda Deluxe tissues, Zunar said, “I was truly surprised that a tissue could be this strong, but Vinda Deluxe certainly lives up to its promise. Together, we have played a small part in celebrating Malaysia’s strength and resilience, and it’s a privilege to work with a like-minded partner like Vinda Deluxe. This is my first major piece of work for public exhibition since the dawn of our new Malaysia and it’s a great way to celebrate Malaysia Day!”

4 Strategies for Keeping Your Pets Safe Outdoors

Allowing your pet outdoors can give it the exercise it needs and the chance to explore. However, from parasitic insects to feline leukemia virus, many dangers are present as well. From dogs and cats to farm animals that require time to graze and socialize, each may face different hazards when you allow them to roam your property. To lower the risk of injury or illness, there are several actions you can take while giving your pet the freedom it desires.
  
1.    Get Your Pet Microchipped

Microchipping your dog or cat can give it the best chances of getting home to you if it should wander too far and become lost. These tiny chips, which are injected under your pet’s skin, are scannable and allow any vet or shelter to identify your dog or cat if it is not wearing any collar or identification tags. The chip number carries your name, phone number, and other important information. Some shelters pair the microchip with a wearable tag that lets people know your pet is chipped and not a stray animal.

When you adopt a pet, some shelters offer chipping as part of the adoption fee. Your pet will not be aware of the chip once it is injected, and it causes no pain or discomfort, even for toy breeds.
  
2.    Use a Flea and Tick Treatment

Fleas, ticks, and mosquitos can cause a miserable infestation in your pet that can lead to long-term illnesses and even death. Once your pet picks up fleas and ticks and brings them into your home, their eggs can hide in carpets and bedding for months until they hatch and spread throughout your home. Using a pest treatment program can prevent these parasitic insects from hurting your pets or invading your home.

Advances in veterinary technology offer you many different choices when it comes to protecting your pet from biting insects. Collars, dips, shampoos, and even pills are available to repel fleas and ticks. While some come with the risk of mild side effects, most animals can tolerate them. You can ask your vet which type of treatment is the best choice for your individual pet.

 3.    Limit Contact With Strange Animals

If you allow your pet outdoors or take it with you on hikes or errands, it is a good idea to keep it under your control and supervision at all times to prevent contact with strange animals. Strays, wandering animals from nearby neighborhoods, and wild animals can all cause injury to your pet. Even leashed dogs might carry ear mites or fleas, so limiting your pet’s contact with strange animals can reduce the chances of transfer.

Limiting contact with other dogs can be especially important for a puppy who has not has its full course of immunizations. Contact can increase the chances of contracting parvoviral syndrome, which causes vomiting, diarrhea, a loss of appetite, and eventually death. While puppies can overcome parvo, they may develop distemper afterward, which causes high fever and coughing. There is no cure for this illness, and dogs that develop it usually have to be euthanized.
  
4.    Immunize Your Horse

Letting your horse out to graze can expose it to contagious and deadly diseases, such as equine distemper, which is also known as strangles, or tetanus, which can be picked up in pastures and grazing fields. Immunizing your horse can protect them as they enjoy the company of other horses, and you can visit VPD for horse vaccines and other products that can keep your horse safe and healthy.

Your pets face certain risks when you allow them outdoors to explore. However, with a little preventative care and knowledge, they can enjoy all the freedom that comes with visiting places beyond your backyard.
