Is Chinese language important?

My son is going to be Standard 5 next year, he is having tough time with this language. He has to start tuition on Chinese language this Saturday for continues 2 weeks. It's expensive indeed I hope he will puts his heart and thoughts plus full attention to this. RM650 for just two weeks, next year would be his little brother turn.

Last year it cost only RM600, this year RM650 which means next year is RM700. It's all about money.

Not just that his brother turning to 6 years old next year and need to get start with tuition too. His Chinese is very poor and he needs to learn to speak up. We are trying to build his confidence, its best to start them young.

Orchid Introduces Sazzy Falak As Brand Ambassador, Kick Starts Feminine Empowerment Campaign #Malu?TakMalu!

Ms Sazzy Falak (Left) and Ms Tan Joo In (Right), Product Manager, Household & Personal Care, Marketing Division of Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, officially launching Orchid Feminine Wash and its feminine empowerment campaign, #Malu?TakMalu!

Being a woman, it's important to take care of ourselves. Don't forget that we need to care for our hygiene too. Intimate feminine hygiene is a subject that girls and women shy away from discussing because of our upbringing, cultural and social mores, and self-confidence issues.

However, girls and women need to address intimate feminine hygiene openly and in an environment where they feel safe to ask difficult questions and to seek advice as it is an essential part of their health and well-being.

Enter Orchid, the feminine wash range that combines the best of traditional herbs with dermatologically proven balanced pH through its #Malu?TakMalu! campaign that encourages young women to #BeYourself!

The brand has named trendsetting, straight-talking, actress and television presenter, Sazzy Falak as its brand ambassador to helm this feminine empowerment campaign.

The #Malu?TakMalu!’ Campaign
The #Malu?TakMalu! campaign will include roadshows at universities and colleges nationwide to encourage the conversation around women’s intimate hygiene and women’s health and well-being issues.

The campaign aims to educate and create awareness among women to be empowered by their femininity rather than to be ashamed to address concerns that might be causing them to worry or to feel less confident.

Sazzy Falak will be at each roadshow to facilitate and moderator the discussion through a frank and forthright discussion of the feminine health questions that women shy away from.

An on-ground and on-line activation of the #Malu?TakMalu campaign is the Orchid #BeYourself contest that will include the search for three young ladies who will join Sazzy in a short film on furthering the conversation on women’s intimate hygiene. The short film will be developed in collaboration with entertainment heavyweight Metrowealth International Group (MIG).

Prizes for the contest include a total of RM6,000 in cash, product prizes and the opportunity to star in the short film with Sazzy Falak for the champion.

According to Product Manager, Household & Personal Care, Marketing Division of Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, Ms Tan Joo In, Orchid has vast appeal to Malaysian women due to its combination of modern hygiene technology and traditional remedies, and through the appointment of Sazzy Falak to define the brand.

“Orchid understands that every woman is unique, with differing intimate care needs. This is why we have a range of products that go beyond cleansing, deodorizing to whitening the bikini area that often suffers from chaffing. The challenge for Orchid is to get women engaged and empowered in the conversation without being crippled by shyness and lack of self-confidence hence our #Malu?TakMalu! campaign.

“Malaysian women are complex in that they are thoroughly modern, yet strongly tied to tradition, and Orchid has the solution that is perfect for them. Sazzy embodies these values too – modern in outlook, fearless, outspoken and yet strongly traditional as well,” said Ms Tan.
Sazzy Falak was chosen as Orchid’s brand ambassador as she represents the dynamism, intelligence, capability and multi-faceted role of modern Malaysian women. A mother of twin daughters, a wife, award-winning actress, popular television host, fashion designer and entrepreneur, Sazzy is an inspiration for those who believe that with confidence, anything is possible.

Orchid Appoints Sazzy Falak As Brand Ambassador

“As a woman and as a mother of two girls, I’m familiar with the self-confidence issues faced by young women when it comes to what is normal in intimate hygiene. As an advocate for women, I’m proud to be able to share and guide younger women on a journey of discovering themselves, and simply being themselves. Should any of these ladies feel shy or malu, I want to reassure them that it is fine to be ‘Tak Malu!’ in this case, and seize the day,” Sazzy Falak shared.
Orchid comes in three variants (from left) Romantis, Intim and Anggun. The femininely shaped 210ml bottles retail at RM4.75 each, and are available nationwide.
The Orchid Feminine Hygiene Range
The Orchid Feminine Hygiene range contains nourishing and cleansing traditional ingredients such as Manjakani, Kacip Fatimah and Daun Sirih (Betel Leaf) that gently deodorizes, brighten and strengthens delicate skin, providing a balanced solution that caters to every skin type. The gentle formula is designed to enhance hygiene, comfort and intimate balance while helping to reduce itchiness and discomfort caused by natural changes in vaginal pH.

Orchid Feminine Wash is available in three variants of Intim, Romantis and Anggun.

 Malaysia’s all time household favourite yogurt drink Nestle® BLISS® has developed Nestle® BLISS® GO, a delicious ready-to-drink beverage for growing up kids that is nutritious.

Amongst the biggest concerns for mothers is their children’s food intake, especially when they are out of sight. With the myriad of food available for kids to consume when their parents are not around, it is no wonder that mothers worry if their children are getting enough nutrition. This could result to poor digestive system which is core to nutrient absorption and general health.

Available in two popular flavours, grape and strawberry, Nestle® BLISS® GO is filled with goodness including Inulin, a prebiotic that is food for good bacteria to grow in your gut, as well as Vitamin C, which enhances the absorption of iron from food; and Calcium, to promote the development of strong bones and teeth. These are the 3-in-1 ingredients packed into Nestle® BLISS® GO …the goodness for tummies and more.

In line with the brand’s core value in promoting good digestive health, Inulin is one of the vital ingredients in Nestle® BLISS® GO’s 3-in-1 recipe for goodness as it provides the body with nutrients to promote the growth of good intestinal bacteria to do their work and develop a good intestinal system.

“Good digestive health should start from young, as it prevents illnesses such as obesity, allergies, malnutrition, and more. We also understand when parents can’t supervise every meal, especially when they go to school or out to play, children have the freedom to eat anything they want which may not give them adequate nutrition. Parents are constantly on the lookout for ways to help their children grow healthier and stronger. That is why Nestle® BLISS® GO is the tasty and convenient solution for parents to add to their children’s daily routine,” said Wilfrid Foo, the Business Executive Manager of Chilled Dairy Nestle Malaysia, during the launch at Aeon Big, Mid Valley Megamall.

10,000 participants in Great Eastern Genting King of the Mountain

 Last Saturday it was a day where my classmate and me had gone to RWG. Do you know that they are ten thousand people signed up for the obstacle course event that is Great Eastern Genting King of the Mountain but hundreds more joined in for the camaraderie of the day? There was no doubt the event held at The Ranch @ Gohtong Jaya recently was a huge success.

Not only was the number of participants bigger than last year's 8,500; the event that inspired togetherness was a heartwarming picture of people in solidarity while in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. The air was thick with excitement, and the participants that gathered in teams were visually striking, each team with their very own theme colour in terms of racing outfits.

Evidently raring to go, the participants nevertheless had time for picture taking. They were cheered on by a crowd of enthusiastic onlookers at the starting line where participants were flagged off every half an hour by the deejay in charge.
teamwork is important, they help each other to climb over

Dato Koh Yaw Hui, the Director and Chief Executive Officer of Great Eastern Life, summed up the event perfectly: “In fulfilling Great Eastern's brand aspirations as a life insurance company, we hope to inspire Malaysians to live healthier, better and longer. As the title sponsor for Great Eastern Viper Challenge 2016, we recognise how the challenging obstacle course can motivate everyone, especially our youth, to adopt a healthier lifestyle in every way—physically and mentally.

“The event not only promotes a well-balanced and holistic idea of good health but also emotional wellness to foster camaraderie and teamwork.”

This is the second year running that Resorts World Genting was involved with the King of the Mountain event along with Viper Challenge. Kevin Tann, Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment of Resorts World Genting, was understandably happy to be involved in the event, describing it as “arguably the best obstacle course event in Malaysia because it combines great obstacles, good weather and a finishing

Tann said, “The fact that tickets were sold out early and we had a bigger number of participants than before shows how urbanites find the event very appealing. It is exercise for the mind, body and spirit; recreation that enhances one's mental, physical and spiritual well-being. And that's because not only
does it promote healthy living; the community spirit it fosters is something we should all be proud of.
“There is surely nothing more positive than families and friends coming together to have fun while getting a good workout and connecting with other people. It is heartening for us at Resorts World
Genting to be part of such a huge community event.”

Best obstacle course event
Like usual, the Viper Challenge this year posed some daunting manmade obstacles but trust the spirited participants to take it all in their stride. They took on the obstacle course that spanned over a 10-kilometre route covering a landscape filled with crooked pathways and rugged terrain. They were tested physically as well as mentally—and how they enjoyed the huffing and puffing!

Obstacles such as Peg Wall and Cargo Net Climb provided the best upper body workout while Rotating Cubes and Water Net Crawl were no less challenging and required good skills and technique.
But the other seemingly less challenging obstacles like Tyre Run were as daunting, requiring the participants to negotiate their way through hundreds of tyres spread out over the ground. It wasn't easy to manoeuvre this obstacle and many stumbled their way through but their excitement was palpable— everybody was having fun.

What do the participants themselves have to say about the event?
Among the multicultural teams that took part was Team Real Steel that included 28-year-old Austin from the US who is hard of hearing. Austin, who has worked for a number of years in Malaysia, had participated in other Viper Challenge events but it was the first time he was involved in one held in Genting Highlands. Austin didn't let his handicap get in the way, describing the challenge as “tiring but amazing.”

As befitting a fun event, Team YOLO brought a lot of humour along with them, saying YOLO stands for “You Only Live Once.” Team leader Erica hails from Penang but the team comprises fitness enthusiasts from all over the country—including Johor, Malacca and Pahang.

The team best embodied the spirit of sportsmanship at the event. Clad in yellow T-shirts, the team members never ceased actively motivating each other with chants. The team work displayed was clear to see and at every obstacle, the group members waited for their team mates to finish before moving on to the next challenge. “We never leave our team mates behind,” was how Erica put it.
Equally exemplary was the High School Buddy Friends Group from Malacca that was also involved in last year's race. Twenty-seven-year-old Speedy said his team “couldn't get enough of the challenge and thus came back for more adventure.”

He added, “Compared to last year, this year's event seems more participant-friendly and we saw improvement, which is good.”

Carnival atmosphere complete with music and food
It was not only weekend warriors that got to derive enjoyment from the event; there were many who turned up just to soak in the carnival atmosphere. And of course, for them the other attractions—the food and music—helped make the event memorable. The unique sight of so many food trucks in one place alone must have excited many people, as did the Grilled Chicken with Firewood that was presented “tall tower and campfire style.”

The colourful food trucks adding to the carnival atmosphere sold all types of food, including Big Hug Burgers, Curbside Cantina (selling Mexican food), The Backyard Chef (Chicken Chop, Fish & Chips and Ice Cream), Planet Gergazi (hotdogs), and Lokka Cafe (sandwiches, sausages, hotdogs, juices and teas).
There were also trucks selling desserts and sweets, namely Pancake on Wheel, Pocky, Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream, and Juice Buzz. Beverages including beer were also aplenty.

If you like to eat, how about mooncake do you like them?
Check out my blog post on the RWG new mooncake flavour, click on the link to read.

Providing music entertainment were the Double Aze comprising Allan G. Murillon and Albert Sirimal, with their gentle harmonies and acoustic numbers. The other performer was vocalist June Wong who was accompanied by her keyboardist friend. With her smooth vocals, Wong easily got the crowd to sit back and relax as she delivered some contemporary numbers.

Shogun dinner on last Sunday

Last Sunday dinner with friend Peggy, she is nephew's kaima. He's going to further study and work in China next month so she treats dinner at Shogun, Sunway Pyramid.

Then she bought toys for my sons at Toys R Us as my son promised to eat rice. She offers to buy him toys as knowing he doesn't like to eat rice at all. So he ate 3 spoonful of rice while crying.

Both sons so happy and have started playing their toys. Lego toys is the choice of my eldest son, while youngest son chosen the Dino Power Ranger toy.

We reached home late at night as the mall closed at 10pm and many people rushing back home on that hour. Usually my youngest would sleep at 8pm as he needs to wake up early for kindergarten next day.

Talking about toys, wanna know which toys auntie Peggy have bought them? Do click on the link to view it.
