SUNWAY LAGOON CELEBRATES WORLD ANIMAL DAY WITH A PLEDGE TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY

Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park’s animals enjoying the enrichment items
 Celebrated on 4 October every year, World Animal Day is an international day of action for animal rights and welfare. With a mission to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe, this annual celebration which dates back to 1925 unites the international animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals.
To coincide with World Animal Day, Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park – an interactive and educational zoo featuring more than 150 species-specific exhibits of exotic animals and a diverse range of birds, fish, reptiles and mammals from around the world – held a special campaign to promote its initiatives towards sustainability.

Indeed, Sunway Lagoon’s wildlife park is unique in itself and has been long hailed amongst the animal welfare fraternity and families as a must-visit destination. The interactive concept behind the attraction encourages visitors to not only learn about the animals but to get up close and personal with these “friends”.

In recent times, the Wildlife Park at Sunway Lagoon has stepped up efforts towards being more sustainable. Among these, Sunway Lagoon announced its support towards two of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the United Nations. The SDG programme contains a total of 17 goals which the United Nations aims to achieve by the year 2030. It is a universal call to action, in a bid to end poverty, protect the planet and to ensure that all people can enjoy the diverse richness which Mother Nature exudes.

We are specially invited to Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park’s World Animal Day celebrations. Wildlife enthusiasts, both young and old enjoyed a host of activities and initiatives specially curated to mark this meaningful celebration. These included a special appearance by the sun bear cub, a display by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (PERHILITAN), a multi-animal show, a contest to name the new sun bear cub, a scavenger hunt aptly titled WAD-a-quest and a Save the Earth Pledge Wall, where visitors can mark their pledge towards protecting and preserving Mother Nature.

Indeed a day well spend on last Saturday, where we can hands on to make fruits buffet for the porcupines.It's seem easy but it's not because we need to tie the rope tightly of each bamboo holder so that it doesn't fall off.


Each of us holding the enrichment items

Of these 17 goals, Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park has, without equivocation, committed towards supporting two of these goals. These include Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal #12), aimed at ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns and Life on Land (Goal #15), which aims to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

“With Sunway Lagoon being Asia’s premier theme park, we realise that our operations and undertakings leave a significant impact in the community. We therefore see it as our responsibility to make this impact a positive one. Especially with an attraction like the Wildlife Park, which is one of our most famous, it is essential to conduct our efforts and initiatives in a responsible and sustainable manner,” said Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon.

“This is why we have pledged to support the two Sustainable Development Goals, which are highly pertinent to our operations. This, we hope, will further cement our commitment towards
acting in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner, even as we celebrate World Animal Day,” Sean added.

The World Animal Day celebrations at Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park also took on an exciting yet heartwarming turn this year, when the park announced the arrival of its latest ‘resident’ – a new sun bear cub. Sunway Lagoon will also be presenting one of the most unique and wildest dining experiences at its Wildlife Park together with some of its animals, which include its White Lions, Black Panther and White-handed Gibbons.

“For World Animal Day this year, we wanted to create an experience where people of all ages can enjoy Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park, while learning more about how they can play a role in protecting our environment. All this ties in with our commitment to be more responsible and sustainable, yet presenting a unique and exciting opportunity for the public to enjoy, especially the younger ones, because they are the future of our planet, and will take on the baton towards environmental conservation,” said Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon.

Students from Sunway International School (SIS) got to have a sneak peek into the fun and excitement that awaits visitors at Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park’s World Animal Day celebrations when the park held a special Wildlife Encounter event at the school’s parking lot on 3 October.

Graced by Her Excellency Julia Bentley, the Canadian High Commissioner in Malaysia, activities at the day-long event included appearances by some of the animals at Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park, which students had the opportunity to feed and pet; a talk by Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park Rangers and a quiz and prize giveaway. Students also had the opportunity to participate in the contest to name the Wildlife Park’s new sun bear, and sign the Pledge Wall, which was also set up in the school compound. Students also received discount vouchers, which were redeemable towards Sunway Lagoon’s entrance fee.

Cold Storage Kids Run Returns

The Cold Storage Kids Run is back for its second year running and is better than ever! This year’s Kids Run featured a longer route and a challenging obstacle course that promised an exciting day out for children and adults alike. Part of an initiative by Cold Storage Malaysia to promote Malaysians on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, the 2018 edition of the Kids Run aims to promote healthy routines from a tender age. Indeed a fun time out for son and me though his eldest brother unable to join us because he has to go for last tuition for Chinese language.


Malaysia is one of the top four most overweight countries in Asia Pacific and the rapid rise of overweight children is alarming, as they are at a higher risk of becoming obese as adults and that could lead to many health complications.1 With the advancement of technology, most children and parents take for granted the importance of regular exercises and a balanced meal. Couple that with parents busy schedules, children tend to eat unhealthy food most of the time and do not get enough important nutrients that their body needs in order to grow. We need to be good example for our children, it's good to have outdoor activities from time to time. We have a fun time last year at Cold Storage Kids Run, this year is our 2nd year to take part.You can click it to read about it.


Cold Storage Malaysia is leading the conversation on promoting the importance of an active lifestyle as well as an adequate diet to the public, especially to the future leaders of our country. The Cold Storage Kids Run further emphasis our commitment in inspiring both children and adults, to make healthy food choices by providing a fine selection of fresh and high quality groceries in our stores. This event is part of our continuous effort in educating children on the importance of a balanced lifestyle since young as it could encourage them to start adopting to healthy habits in the future. This year they also bringing the cheer up to 40 MyKasih Foundation primary school students beneficiaries from Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Lanjan (Asli) joining the fun-run towards a healthier lifestyle. A total of RM40,000 from the Cold Storage Kids Run 2018 was channelled to MyKasih Foundation - a non-profit organisation that aims to help the less fortunate in Malaysia as part of Cold Storage Malaysia CSR effort.

Speaking at the event, Pierre-Olivier Deplanck, Managing Director of GCH Retail (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. said, “We wanted to create a fun activity that our customers and family can participate and at the same time the activity should consist of educational messages that is explained in an exciting manner. Once again, Cold Storage Malaysia is proud to call the Kids Run initiative as one of our best effort in promoting the importance of living a balanced and healthy lifestyle.”


Children today are smarter than we give them credit for. We believe that the duty of educating the children on living a healthy lifestyle falls on their parents. Therefore, by encouraging parents to also take part, the adults can lead by example and become a positive role model to their children when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle.


MyKasih Foundation Chairman and Co-Founder, Tan Sri Dr Ngau Boon Keat, expressed his gratitude to Cold Storage for their generosity and continued support of MyKasih Foundation. “We are thankful to receive this RM 40,000 contribution which will go towards the MyKasih ‘Love My School’ student bursary programme to aid students from low-income households. The foundation currently supports 6,500 students in 101 schools, out of which, 30 are Orang Asli primary schools.”


In addition to providing the students with cashless bursaries, the programme includes supplementary activities such as tuition, annual sports days, edible garden projects and installation of computer labs for 21st century learning.


“We truly appreciate this gesture from Cold Storage and hope that other companies will come forward with their charitable giving to support the MyKasih ‘Love My School’ programme”, said Tan Sri Dr Ngau.


Through the Cold Storage Kids Run, we hope to make a change by partnering up with multiple brands that share the same vision as us.


“On behalf of Cold Storage Malaysia, we would like to extend our gratitude towards our event's main sponsors, Emborg, Pediasure, Korea Agro - Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation, Bestari, Darlie, Freedom, Goodday, Julies, Kewpie Malaysia, Kinder Joy, Milo, Prego, Bega, Sunquick, Tiger, PetitMiam, Anmum, O’ Fresh, Enfagrow, Facklemann, Garden Basket, Hot Wheels, KMT, Philips, Wyeth Nutrition Malaysia . We would also like to thank all our participants that joined us in making the Cold Storage Kids Run 2018 a huge success,” said Deplanck.

We stayed til the end for the lucky draw but we didn't win, there are attractive prizes to win and one of it is Legoland Themepark Hotel at Johor Bharu. We have a great time together, this year we get to experience the run in the mall, my son had a fall in mall but we manage to finish the run in time for the Fruity Run. If you are thinking of bonding time with children it's good to take part in family run together.

Ribena® Berrylicious Workshop


Speech by Ms Corrine Tan, Senior Brand Manager, Suntory Beverage & Food Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SBFM)
Busy parenting, didn't stop me from doing things that I love. I am sure everyone know of  Ribena, it's my childhood favourite drink, how about you? Generations of Malaysians have trusted Ribena® since the beloved blackcurrant drink was introduced to Malaysians 63 year ago! Since then, mothers have chosen Ribena® to deliver blackcurrant goodness to their children, in the distinctively berrylicious taste of Ribena®, made from a special blend of New Zealand blackcurrants that provides all the Vitamin C needed in a single day, in just one glass.

“The Ribena® brand is close to the hearts of many Malaysians, and most of us have fond memories associated with Ribena®, especially of our mothers giving us the blackcurrant goodness of Ribena®. Nevertheless, even with a beloved brand like Ribena® that has stood the test of time, there is always something new we can do to resonate with the mothers of today in a fresh way,” said Ms Corrine Tan, Senior Brand Manager, Suntory Beverage & Food Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SBFM).

In one of SBFM’s activities to engage with Malaysian mums and Ribena® fans, SBFM organised a special Ribena® Berrylicious Workshop today, to celebrate and demonstrate the versatility of Ribena®, led by celebrity mum Dr Jezamine Lim Iskander as the guest host. During the workshop, guests had the opportunity to learn and try their hands at making unique Ribena®- infused recipes, from a traditional Vietnamese roll given a Ribena® twist, to a spinach salad made more fun with Ribena® and cheese tarts with jelly given the Ribena® touch. It wasn’t just the recipes given a creative spin with Ribena®, as workshop participants also had the opportunity to unleash their creativity in the Decorate Your Cheese Tarts Mini Contest, with the winner taking home a limited edition Ribena® mini fridge.
Both mommies having a good time at the workshop.

It's such a fun workshop that everyone is learning and enjoying themselves.

“Through this workshop, we wanted to offer Ribena® fans versatile new ways to enjoy its distinct taste and blackcurrant goodness rich in Vitamin C. This workshop showcases unique new recipes that are more than desserts and drinks. With fun recipes like the Ribena® spinach salad, perhaps we can even get kids to eat more vegetables. Preparing food and drinks is also a wholesome family activity that can bring all ages together, just as love for this time-honoured drink has united Malaysians for generations,” added Corrine.

Dr Jezamine also shared her love for Ribena® with the workshop participants. “I was one of those children who enjoyed the blackcurrant goodness of Ribena® during my growing-up years. It’s so convenient to be able to get your daily dose of goodness in such a delicious drink! Today, Ribena® comes in many variants, even a less sweet option, so I can choose the most suitable treat for my family. Nevertheless, although the taste of Ribena® is really special on its own, it’s also eye-opening for me to learn just how versatile Ribena® is,” she said.



 

“As a mum of three, I’m spreading my love of Ribena® to my children, so I hope my kids will join me in expanding our horizons with Ribena®. Preparing food with my children is one way I’m nurturing and bonding with them through fun and mentally-enriching activities, besides creating great childhood memories. I’m looking forward to trying the yummy and wholesome recipes demonstrated today with my little ones. I think they will certainly enjoy expressing themselves while decorating the Ribena® cheese tarts with jelly. I hope all Ribena® fans will also have as much fun in the kitchen with Ribena®,” added Dr Jezamine.

The Ribena® Berrylicious Workshop, held at Handcrafted Creative Bites Studio in Setia City Mall here, was guided by the studio’s food director Wong May Chew, who also created the recipes demonstrated during the workshop. The session was broadcast live on Ribena® Malaysia’s Facebook page, and is still available for viewing. 
Check out updates on Ribena® Malaysia’s activities and announcements on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RibenaMalaysia and on Instagram at www.instagram.com/ribenamalaysia/

Ribena® is available at hypermarkets, supermarkets, mini markets and convenience stores/kiosks nationwide.

RMHC Charity Golf Tournament raises RM440,000 for construction of Ronald McDonald House at Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia

Additional pledges in cash and in kind from business partners and public will go towards realising funding target of RM4 million

Everyone has got a busy lifestyle, I am mom of two boys and I am glad I took time off to attend this meaningful event. Ronald McDonald House Charities’ (RMHC) Charity Golf Tournament has successfully raised RM440,000 for the construction of the new Ronald McDonald House at Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (Hospital USM) in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan. The annual golf tournament which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year received overwhelming support with many donating generously to ensure that RMHC’s vision of championing children health, education and welfare continues to be realised.   
(From Left to Right) – Associate Professor Dr. Ariffin Nasir, USM Lecturer and Hospital USM Paediatric Department Specialist; Professor Dato’ Dr. Ahmad Sukari Halim, Hospital USM Director and USM Health Campus Director; Mr Mohd Nasri Mohd Nordin, RMHC General Manager; and Mr Azahari Abd Taharim, RMH-PPUKM Chairman during the media briefing session on the 2nd Ronald McDonald House, held in conjunction with RMHC Charity Golf Tournament 2018.

I didn't know of the first Ronald McDonald House until I attended this event. The first Ronald McDonald House was built at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre nearly 20 years ago and continues to serve the needs of families from the low-income group. Meanwhile, the second Ronald McDonald House which will be at Hospital USM is scheduled to be completed and ready to welcome families during the first quarter of 2019. The families are already expressing their eagerness at having affordable accommodation spaces while their children seek long-term treatment at Hospital USM. It's good to be able to keep the families close together as children will missed their parents while they are having their long-term treatment.

No parents want to stay away to their children while they are sick. It's important if can keeping families close. Ronald McDonald House which will be at Hospital USM will benefits the needy. Parent's don't have to travel from far and can stay close to their children who are seeking long-term treatment at Hospital USM. 

Profesor Dato' Dr. Ahmad Sukari Halim, Hospital USM Director & USM Health Campus Director, said that the new Ronald McDonald House would be extremely beneficial because many families who have ill children seeking treatment at the hospital are from low-income groups.



Paediatric patients who undergo treatment in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre (PPUKM) and their families shared their stories during the media briefing session. (From Left to Right) – Amir Faisal Zainal Abidin (patient since 2004) with his father Zainal Abidin Ahmad and mother Noor Azah Abdul Aziz. Also present Mimi Faizah Lee Abdullah, mother to Jasmine Lee (patient since 2005) and grandmother to Agnes How (patient since 2013).


“As much as possible, we want these families to stay close together as the treatment process can be long and stressful. Some families have to travel from faraway locations which could sometimes take up to two hours. With the soon to be completed Ronald McDonald house at Hospital USM providing affordable accommodation for the family, the parents’ primary focus can be channelled towards supporting their child’s treatment and recovery at the hospital,” he said.



The new Ronald McDonald House will benefit the needy, just watch the video above to give you more understand. Young patients who seek treatment at the Hospital and parent watching over them. Parents are not allow to sleep on patient's bed whether the patients are in bed or out of bed, with this home build parent can stay close with their children and have a better rest while taking care of them.

The new Ronald McDonald House will serve as an affordable and comfortable accommodation space for family members of children seeking long-term medical treatment at Hospital USM or other local hospitals nearby. More significantly, the new Ronald McDonald House is also expected to benefit those travelling from other states nationwide, since only a nominal fee is charged for families to utilise facilities like comfortable bedrooms, dining area, play area, kitchen, laundry area and many more. That's great as we can keep the family together and close to each other especially to their loved ones who are seeking for treatment. This also help the families to help each other support in emotion and psychology. Treatment is not one time off, it's not cheap if stay at hotel, some patients need consistent visiting the hospital for their treatments. The new Ronald McDonald House help families to lessen their burden financially.

Puan Mimi Faizah Lee Abdullah has been staying at the first Ronald McDonald House which is in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre since 2005. According to her, the benefit of having an affordable accommodation is immeasurable especially when her daughter and grand-daughter undergo cancer treatment at the hospital.

“It can be a painful and terrifying process for a young child seeking treatment, so for us to be close by their side is comforting for them and also parents staying at Ronald McDonald House can help each other to cope emotionally,” said Mimi Faizah.  

We can give a helping hand by donating to RHMC donation boxes, as every sen counts. Thinking of doing good deeds and helping others who are having difficult in their lifestyle. Members of the public and McDonald’s customers can also play their part in this ongoing initiative by dropping their donation into the RMHC donation boxes at all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide.
