TENA’s “Apa Khabar Mak Abah?” Campaign

Launch of TENA's "Apa Khabar Mak Abah?" Campaign to raise awareness and empower children of aging parents about urinary incontinence with Evelyn Chan, Marketing Director, Vinda Group Southeast Asia (left) and Dr Peter Ng, Consultant Urologist & President of the Continence Foundation Malaysia.

Incontinence, or urinary leakage, affects an estimated 1.4 million Malaysians1 with 1 in 3 women over age 40 and 1 in 10 men over age 65 having some form of the condition2, but only 31% of them have sought medical advice3 - this means many people suffer in silence, including aging parents who may be embarrassed or take great effort to conceal it from their children.


Recognising that many are reluctant to speak openly about this, TENA’s “Apa Khabar Mak Abah?” Campaign, supported by the Continence Foundation of Malaysia (CFM), aims to encourage children to be more alert and attentive to their aging parents’ wellbeing. By providing educational resources and support, they can be more aware and recognise signs that their own parents may be suffering in silence.


“Incontinence can affect an individual’s mobility and quality of life, which is worrisome for the people who love and care for them. What’s more, their embarrassment or the fear of social stigma can make it difficult for them to talk about it. At TENA, we recognise the need for greater awareness and understanding so they feel more comfortable about seeking help, with the support of their children,” said Evelyn Chan, Marketing Director, Vinda Group Southeast Asia.

“This is why the “Apa Khabar Mak Abah?” Campaign encourages family members, especially children, to watch out for tell-tale signs that their parents may be trying to cope with the condition, and to take necessary steps to help, so that incontinence can be managed effectively. In line with this, TENA provides educational tools, resources and also holistic solutions to help with urine leaks, such as TENA Pants, an absorbent underwear which enables continued mobility and freedom to do what one needs to do without being hindered by the condition,” she added.


Explaining further, Dr Peter Ng, consultant urologist and president of Continence Foundation Malaysia, said: “Many people suffer needlessly even though incontinence is easily managed with the right knowledge and support. While it’s difficult to change mindsets, especially among the elderly, engaging with their family members is a good place to start. We hope for children to educate themselves so they can be aware if their parents are suffering silently. With the help of their loved ones, they can retain their freedom to move around and enjoy their golden years without fear or embarrassment.”


“As a caregiver, I definitely appreciate having tools and resources available to help us understand urinary incontinence better,” said Juriah binti Jalalus Shuti whose mother Aminah has been suffering from the condition for the past four years. “This campaign encourages children like me to really take notice, because if my siblings and I did not notice the little tell-tale signs in 2014, it probably would have taken longer for Mak to get to where she is today – free to carry out her daily activities and even travel without worries, thanks to TENA. Our parents took care of us when we were young, and I believe it is now our turn to care for them in their golden years.”


The campaign offers valuable resources in the form of: 
* An online Self-Checklist (link can be found at www.facebook.com/TENA.Malaysia), which highlights simple changes in their parents’ usual behaviour such as using the toilet too frequently or avoiding outings where toilet facilities are not easily available; these could indicate they are trying to cope with incontinence. Children are encouraged to take a look at the checklist for themselves, in order to be more aware and take note of these changes in their parents;

* The Caring 101 Handbook (available at www.TENA.com.my), developed with input from a panel of medical experts, offers a helpful look at the changes that come with age, together with practical solutions on how best to care for aging parents;

 * Caring 101 Educational Videos (also available at www.TENA.com.my) for hands-on tips and advice from medical professionals so children can increase their knowledge and be empowered in their role as caregivers;

* A toll-free helpline 1-800-88-9988 or Facebook chat option at www.facebook.com/TENA.Malaysia (available for assistance from 9AM to 5PM, Monday to Friday).

With this knowledge, family members are empowered to help, be it starting a conversation, purchasing absorbent pants or seeking medical advice, so that their loved ones can continue
to do what they love most, without worries about incontinence holding them back from living freely and confidently.


For more information about the “Apa Khabar Mak Abah?” Campaign and educational resources, visit www.facebook.com/TENA.Malaysia or www.TENA.com.my.

For a limited time only, participants who complete the “Apa Khabar Mak Abah?”
Self-Checklist will get a TENA gift* that will help you on your journey in managing incontinence.

Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Official Launch


Die-cast cars, orange tracks, the challenger’s spirit - there’s only one thing we could be talking about: Hot Wheels®. The iconic flame-shaped red and yellow logo is an appropriate symbol for the energy and excitement that the brand champions. This year, Hot Wheels is celebrating its 50th Anniversary - that’s 50 years of inspiring kids to challenge boundaries, die-cast car in one hand and an orange track in the other.


The Hot Wheels® SEA 50th Tour, launched in conjunction with this milestone, is taking Dmitriy Shakhmatov, Global Hot Wheels® Product Design Manager, across Southeast Asia. The tour kicked off in Malaysia at the annual Art of Speed event in MAEPS, Serdang. The event was attended by automobile enthusiasts from all over the country. All collectors know that this is the place to be to grab those rare collectibles to add to their collections.

“We’re glad that Hot Wheels® die-cast vehicles and tracksets have been present in the homes of our fans for 50 years,” said Ivan Franco, Country Manager of Mattel Southeast Asia. “We believe in embracing challenges through imaginative, creative play - we don’t take that responsibility lightly. We want to impart that virtue on the new generation in all the ways that we can.”


The brand organised a design competition for students aged 9-12 across the Klang Valley - asking them to send in their best ideas for a Hot Wheels car. Hundreds heard and answered the call, going above and beyond with their designs. Individual entries were judged by Dmitriy Shakhmatov himself. Shakhmatov has been with the brand since 2015 and has already seen some of his dreams come true.


“I still find it hard to believe that I was able to see my personal design of the Aristorat come to fruition. But that’s the promise of Hot Wheels, isn’t it? That if you can dream it, you can make it happen. I would jumped at the chance to participate in a contest like this when I was younger - I’m so glad Hot Wheels® is being proactive and carving out a space for kids to be creative,” he said.


Shakhmatov met with some of the kids, collectors, and fans during a short meet-and-greet session at Malaysia’s Art of Speed 2018 event, during which he gave out autographs and bonded with them over a shared love of cars. His enthusiasm was contagious and most evident when he was presented with a surprise gift: a collage of the top 50 entries from the design competition.


The Hot Wheels® SEA 50th Tour, launched in conjunction with this milestone, is taking Dmitriy Shakhmatov, Global Hot Wheels® Product Design Manager
 This event was also the unveiling of the never before seen and highly anticipated 2019 Car Culture designs. This was the first year the brand has collaborated with RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF, or RWB, a Porsche tuner based in Japan. The particular Car Culture car they collaborated on was an RWB Porsche 930, part of the Porsche 911 family. The actual design of the car will likely be released to the public in the first half of next year.


To celebrate the collaboration, Hot Wheels® unveiled the only RWB Porsche 933, a part of Porsche 911 family, in Malaysia, sporting a Hot Wheels® 50th Anniversary makeover. The car was unveiled by Ivan Franco; Dmitriy Shakhmatov; Christian Coujin, of RWB Porsche; and Asep Ahmad Iskandar, founder of Art of Speed. The unveiling was graced by the surprise appearance of Malaysian International Racer, Jazeman Jafaar, who – to the excitement of those in attendance - started the car’s engine when the cloth was pulled off.


If you’re upset you’ve missed out on all of this fun, fret not! You still have the chance to demonstrate your challenger spirit during the Hot Wheels® Southeast Asia Championship Tour 2018! Hot Wheels® is calling for teams comprised of one parent and one child (ages 4-12) to take on tests of accuracy, speed, and creativity. This tour will stop in 50 Southeast Asian cities. Only six teams will advance to the Grand Finals held in Jakarta, Indonesia where they will take each other on to win the Grand Prize in November 2018.

Hot Wheels® unveiled six of the upcoming 2019 Car Culture designs, including the very first prototype of the exact RWB Porche 2019.

The actual (full-sized) RWB Porsche was unveiled in celebration of Hot Wheels® 50th Anniversary & collaboration with RWB. This is the latest RWB #7 in Malaysia [Mirai Yosouzu] and this is the first time it’s being shown in public.

RWB is a dedicated Porsche tuner based in Japan. Combining Japanese and Euro tuning elements, RWB is able to create distinct and distinguished Porsches for their customers. Each project will produce an individualised design - meaning no car coming out of their workshop will look the same as another.

 Besides that, Hot Wheels® is holding a “Made to Race” fun run on 12 August 2018 in Kuala Lumpur which those who embody the challenger’s spirit can celebrate together.

Collectors should keep their eyes peeled for the 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Sets:
* Hot Wheels® 50th Black and Gold Collection
* Hot Wheels® 50th Originals Collection
* Hot Wheels® 50th Track Stars 5-car Pack
* Hot Wheels® 50th Anniversary Favourites
* Hot Wheels® 50th Zamac Flames Collection
* Hot Wheels® 50th Stars and Stripes Collection
* Hot Wheels® 50th Camaro Collection
* Hot Wheels® 50th Throwback Collection
* Hot Wheels® 50th Anniversary 10-car Pack

Jordan caring for teeth


Busy parenting lifestyle, I didn't forget about our oral care hygiene. Back in 2015 I did blog about Jordan, you can read about it by click on the link.




Sharing is caring, now you seeing this is Jordan's Champion Chompers. Inside has got children toothbrushes and toothpastes also kid's flossers, read on to find out.

Not just adults flosser and now kids also has their own kids flosser.
from left Step 1 toothbrush, Step 2 toothbrush and Kids toothpaste 0-5


Step 1 toothbrushes
Good dental care routines start from the very first tooth. The actual time at which the first tooth arrives can vary widely between individual children, but the parents needs to start brushing the child´s teeth as soon as the first teeth appears.
Jordan Step 1 toothbrush is tailor-made to make the first brushing experience a good one. Designed with extra soft bristles, a soft rubber biting ring for babies’ gums and a handle that fits both large and small hands, Step 1 toothbrush helps making the first step in establishing healthy and happy dental care routines for a baby.
The short neck of the toothbrush prevents the toothbrush being inserted too far into the child´s mouth. At this age a toothbrush should be used under parental supervision, and the grip on the handle of the toothbrush Step 1 toothbrush years is also suited for an adult.
Step 1 toothbrush comes in strong stimulating colours



Step 2 toothbrushes
At this age the child does not necessarily understand the importance of brushing their teeth, and it can be a challenge to explain and to motivate the child.
Step 3-5 years is specially designed to clean milk teeth and with its round head and soft bristles it is easy to move the toothbrush around the teeth.
* Round head with soft bristles designed to clean milk teeth, plus a toothpaste indicator.
* Option of sand timer, decorative holder with suction cup to hang up on a mirror, or travel cap for overnight stays and travel.
* Comfortable grip for both children and parents.

Babies are ultra-sensitive when it comes to their senses; light, sound and taste – particularly bitterness! As we grow out of babyhood into childhood and young adulthood, our senses lose the sharp edge they started off with long-term exposure of SLS might irritate the mouth and result in unpleasant wounds and dry mucous membranes, toothpaste without SLS is better for your child

Kids toothpaste 0-5
Mild taste of Strwberry
Fun designs for girls and boys
Attract and motivate kids
Effective toothpaste
Fluoride 500 ppm (0-6 years)
Stronger teeth
Gentle toothpaste
SLS/Sulphate free
Scandinavian Quality

Children have twice as many taste buds as adults. Jordan’s new series of toothpaste have a mild, fruity taste that kids love. The gentle and effective toothpaste is specially formulated to protect children’s teeth against cavities.
 
From left Junior Toothpaste 6 - 12yrs old, Step 3 toothbrushes

 Many types of toothpaste are highly abrasive and actually strip away enamel which never grows back. Permanent teeth need more fluoride than milk teeth, but the older kids still prefer a mild tasting toothpaste. Jordan’s junior toothpaste has a mild fruity mint flavour the child recognizes from children’s’ toothpaste, but is specially formulated to protect the first permanent teeth.


Benefits Jordan kids and junior toothpaste:
* Mild fruity flavour preferred by kids.
* Fun and recognisable design elements from the Step by Step collection.
* Gentle & effective toothpaste.
* Recommended fluoride level.
* Gentle to enamel
 
Junior Toothpaste 6 - 12years old
Mild taste of Grape
A slightly more «fresh» taste than Jordan Kids
Cool designs for girls and boys
Attract and motivate kids
Cool design, attractive also for 12 years
Effective toothpaste
Fluoride 1000 ppm (6-12 years)
Gentle toothpaste
SLS/Sulphate free
Scandinavian Quality

 

Step 3 toothbrushes
Children of this age understand why they have to brush their teeth, and may already have been to the dentist. The challenge at this age is that the child has both milk and permanent teeth, and the resulting uneven positioning of the teeth makes the bristles even more important.

Step 6-9 years is designed to meet the challenging oral needs at this age. The integrated “solo brush” reaches molars and hard-to-reach spaces between the teeth and gums - no teeth or surfaces need to be forgotten.
* Round soft bristles with integrated “solo brush” for optimal cleaning of a mix of primary and permanent teeth, plus a toothpaste indicator.
* Charms plus suction cup to hang up, or a travel cap.
* Round grip for optimal rotation and reach, comfortable for both children and parents.


from left Step 3 toothbrush, Kids Flosser
 Kids Flosser

Establishing a routine at an early stage is important – those who start early will continue to floss when they get older. At the age of six, the six year old molars come, and the teeth get close to each other. Dentist recommend that kids should start flossing from 5-6 years old.

Benefits of kids’ flosser:
* Easy to reach in-between all teeth – even the ones in the back.
* Small handle makes it easy to use for kids.
* Fruity flavour preferred by kids.
* Fun and recognisable design elements from the Step by Step collection.

The fact is, most of us don’t clean all parts of our teeth because most toothbrushes can’t reach the deeper recesses of the mouth. Jordan Nano Compact is specifically designed with a small 1.7cm head to allow for a more thorough cleaning of your teeth. With 0.01mm soft bristles and a slim handle, Jordan Nano Compact can keep ALL your teeth clean, anytime.

Jordan Clean Smile adult toothbrush
Jordan Clean Smile combines good quality with good design.
It won the Red Dot award for design excellence in 2016, and is designed by the renowned Scandinavian Designer Andreas Engesvik. True to Scandinavian design principles, it combines purposeful functionality with clean, simple design.
* Medium head size.
* Comfortable ergonomic handle with intuitive thumb grip.
* Quality bristles made of Nylon 6, 12 which cleans well and have excellent water resistance.
* Simple, clean and functional design by Andreas Engelsvik.
Available in soft and medium bristles, and in a palette of modern colour combinations.

Never to late to know of important of oral care hygiene.  I like Jordan as they have variety choice of adult toothbrushes to choose from.

Asia’s First Museum of Illusions at the Heart of Kuala Lumpur


The world’s fastest growing museum chain has officially opened Asia’s very first Museum of Illusions, right here in Malaysia.

The museum boasts the largest single collection of optical illusions in all of Asia and is set to tantalize visitors to a visual and sensory experience that transcends generations.

“We’re very lucky to have been chosen as the first destination in Asia,” said Museum Director Azizul Aznan.

“With museums in Europe and the Middle East already opened and blue-ribbon destinations like New York, Berlin, Dubai and Toronto expected in coming months, Kuala Lumpur is excited to be first on the map in this part of the world.”

Kuala Lumpur is slated to be the seventh Museum of Illusions since the maiden attraction originated in the land of famous international inventor Nikola Tesla, in Zagreb, Croatia in 2015. Another seven museums are scheduled to open before the end of 2018.

However, unlike most museums, where a certain mature decorum is expected when admiring exhibits, the Museum of Illusions welcomes a bit of noise and banter – particularly laughing and bewildered exclamations.

“We don’t want visitors to be shy about their emotions, we want them to fully engage and interact with the exhibits. We want them to let their imagination run wild and share their experiences with friends and family as they navigate the perplexing, maze-like museum.”

One of the museums first patrons, Tan Sri Dato' Seri Vincent Tan, was on hand to demonstrate the museums highly interactive character, enthusiastically ‘crawling on the ceiling’ equivalent to the famous Marvel superhero, Spiderman.

Azizul said that the museum challenges the mind at every step and turn.

“The way our brain works is extremely complex, we don’t merely perceive reality as we see or feel it. What our brain does is gather information from each of our senses, combining and enhancing some details while ignoring others, all the while filling in any gaps using its pre-existing knowledge of the world.

“With each of our exhibits, we intentionally alter this information and in doing so we alter your perception of reality in surprising, intriguing, and fun ways. This museum is something you truly need to experience first-hand.”

With over 70 exhibits, the Museum of Illusions has the largest collection of holograms, stereograms, and optical illusions across Asia. Each of the exhibits has been designed to not only thrill and beguile visitors, but to provide a unique opportunity from which to learn just how easily a person’s mind can be tricked.

“The Museum of Illusions in Kuala Lumpur is undoubtedly destined to become one of this season’s top city attractions, and visitors will have the opportunity to share their spectacular photos and videos through social media,” Azizul said.

The Museum of Illusions showcases entertaining and mind-bending illusions, each of which teaches about vision, perception, the human brain, and science, allowing visitors to understand why their eyes may see things that the brain does not understand.

Illusions vary from a gravity-defying slanted room to visual illusions where the person shrinks or grows before their very eyes. You can engulf yourself in a dark and disorienting vortex or sit at a table with multiple versions of yourself while playing a game or two. There is also a gift shop that offers mind-twisting puzzles, as well as souvenirs and games suitable for all ages.

“We also have a clever playroom with lots of problem-solving games, which will absolutely blow your mind. This Museum offers a totally mesmerizing experience; one you can enjoy with the entire family,” concluded Azizul.
The ‘Museum of Illusions’ is located on the 1st and 2nd floor of the newly expanded zone of Ansa Hotel, 101 Jalan Bukit Bintang, in Kuala Lumpur.

Doors are open daily from 9am to 11 pm and entrance fees are priced at MYR 35 for adults and
MYR 25 for children below 15. Special rates apply for families, large groups and school excursions.

CARRIE JUNIOR ODOUR BUSTER KIDS HAIR SHAMPOO ~ FOR HAIR THAT SMELLS GREAT ALL DAY LONG!



Have you ever experienced a strong odour from your kid’s sweaty hair and scalp after school or playing outdoor? The odour becomes worse when your child’s hair and scalp get sweaty and oily. The only effective way to eliminate such unpleasant odour is to ensure your child washes his or her hair after playing outdoor and after school. Maintaining their hair hygiene will also help decrease the risk of scalp infections besides ensuring they smell fresh. My son often sweat and he knows it gives him unpleasant odour smell, he loves using the Carrie Junior Odour Buster Kids Hair Shampoo as it smell fruity.

Parents have to take note that usage of adult shampoo is not recommended for young children. Usage of adult shampoo on children will lead to scalp and hair issues especially for children aged between 6-12.  Due to their delicate scalp and hair, it can get particularly sensitive hence allowing them to use a gentler formulated shampoo would be best to maintain healthy hair and scalp.

There's a hidden toy at the back of the bottle of Carrie Junior Odour Buster Kids Hair Shampoo

Understanding such gentle needs of children, CARRIE JUNIOR introduces CARRIE JUNIOR KIDS SHAMPOO ODOUR BUSTER, a shampoo which is safe for daily use and leaves hair smelling great all day long. It is a brand new functional shampoo formulated to combat hair odour effectively yet gentle to the hair and scalp. With the infused fruity burst scent that lasts for up to 24-hours, children can now have fruity fresh smelling hair even after a fun day outdoors. This product is further enriched with olive oil that nourishes and smoothens hair for manageable and easy combing.
