MAM sold its first soother in 1976 and today - 40 years later - is firmly established as the world's leading authority on the design of baby products. In addition to soothers & baby bottles, including related accessories and breastfeeding product as well as cups and specialist teething and oral care products.

EDUCATION TRANSFORMATION FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

Dr Suseela Balakrishnan, Head of Design, Monitoring & Evaluation, Nina Adlan Disney, General Manager Education Development, Zulhaimi Othman, Managing Director of LeapEd and Brian John Ambrosio, Head of State Education Advisory Services)

Recently, I took some time off to attend a dialogue session titled 'Education in the 21st Century - Our Impact', which was organised by LeapEd Services (‘LeapEd’) and focused on their flagship Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0). It was an insightful session for all of us as we learned more about the efforts implemented for education transformation in Malaysia.



The Impact Study revealed that the programme has had an overall positive impact in Malaysia’s education sector

LeapEd was established as a Social Enterprise in 2010, and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad. They’re also Malaysia's first homegrown education service provider! LeapEd aims to enrich lives through capacity-building and education transformation and has impacted over 71,000 students in 160 schools through its various intervention models
such as the District Transformation Programme- AMAN ('DTP-AMAN'), Islamic School Enhancement Programme ('ISEP'), Group-up School Transformation ('GUSTO') programme, Program Sekolah Transformasi ('PreSTasi'), as well as the nation's first Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0) to date. Their Education Philosophy revolves around leaners, for them to realise their innate potential. This in return will add value to their communication skills as a whole.

TSP 1.0 is LeapEd's flagship programme designed to develop holistic students with 21st century capabilities, and is carried out in collaboration with Yayasan AMIR and the Ministry of Education.

TSP 1.0 looks at improving student outcomes and revitalising school culture. Since its roll-out in 2011, the TSP 1.0 has impacted over 5,300 parents and 65,000 students in 83 schools across 12 states in Malaysia. By empowering school administration and leadership team (school management, teachers, students and parents), TSP 1.0 hopes to develop schools that embed sustainable educational practices for the future.

Speaking at the dialogue session, Managing Director of LeapEd Services Sdn Bhd, En Zulhaimi Othman said, "The Trust Schools Programme was designed with the future generations in mind. Over the past 9 years, we have worked closely with our strategic partners such as the Ministry of Education and Yayasan AMIR to develop and implement the programme across schools in Malaysia, equipping students with the critical life skills they require as well as transforming schools in a holistic manner by adapting international best practices." This recent study was conducted to review the effectiveness of TSP 1.0, identifying opportunities to further enhance the model moving forward.



Brian John Ambrosio, Head of State Education Advisory Services, speaking at the dialogue session
Increase in professional competencies

The Impact Study was carried out via mixed methodologies involving surveys, interviews and observations with over 3,000 respondents including school staff, students and parents. The study
also revealed that 95% of secondary school teachers and 76% of primary school teachers moved by at least 1 level up the scale, of Starting to Developing or Enhancing to Extending.

Moving up the scale indicates a paradigm shift in the level of knowledge, skills, thinking, pedagogy and practice, showcasing growth in the teachers’ career. In many cases, professionals may not even experience one level of shift throughout their entire career as it requires continuous self-reflection and growth mindset.

Respectively, 86% of primary and 91% of secondary Middle Leaders observed a minimum progression of 1 level. As for the Senior Leadership team, 76% of primary and 83% of secondary Senior Leaders indicated a minimum progression of 1 level. Of the 124 Middle Leaders surveyed, 8% indicated a progress of 3 levels, equivalent to a very high level of teaching excellence. The study also showed that TSP 1.0 has had a positive impact on the professional competencies of school staff, allowing them to nurture students and provide quality learning in the classrooms.

High quality teaching and learning

Over 3,139 students and parents interviewed reported that students under TSP 1.0 received quality teaching. The study also shows that parents reacted positively to the programme as they observed an increase in opportunities for students to be involved in the life of the schools, as well as an increase in the frequency and level of interaction between schools, parents and the wider community. Furthermore, school climate is both a strong influencer of students' life satisfaction, well-being and student outcomes.

TSP 2.0 Underway

The TSP 1.0 approach focuses on working collaboratively with the school management team, teachers, students, parents and the community. In order, to ensure that the programme remains sustainable and scalable, the impact study also identified opportunities to further enhance the transformation model. An area that was identified is customising interventions depending on the individual need of each school. This will allow expansion of the model to better cater to groups with specific needs such as indigenous and minority groups, students with special needs, as well as to those in rural communities.

Zulhaimi added, "We believe that investing in education is the smartest decision one can make. Education provides opportunity which in turn empowers people, cultivates creativity and improves confidences and self-belief. Through the Impact Study, we have seen how the Trust School Programme has positively impacted the lives of teachers, students and parents. Leveraging on the success and learnings of this programme, we are committed to continue working with our partners to implement a new and enhanced model, TSP 2.0, which will be aligned to global trends and national aspirations."

The TSP 1.0 transformation approach focuses on  public-private partnership ('PPP') outreach model, working collaboratively with school leadership teams, teachers, students, parents and the community. 

To ensure that the programme remains transformative, sustainable and scalable, the research also identified opportunities to further enhance the programme. Some of the areas identified including customising interventions, depending on the individuals needs of schools. This will allow expansion of the model to better cater to groups with specific needs such as indigenous and other minority groups, students with special needs, as well as rural and under-enrolled schools.

Hence, TSP 2.0 is the next evolution of LeapEd's Trust School Programme, which leverages on the success and learnings of TSP 1.0 Designed as a model that is both sustainable and scalable, TSP 2.0 has been launched in 2019 in selected Malaysian public schools.

Zulhaimi added, "We believe that investing in education is the smartest decision one can make. Education provides opportunity which in turn empowers people, cultivates creativity and improves confidences and self-belief. Through the Impact Study, we have seen how the Trust School Programme has positively impacted the lives of teachers, students and parents. Leveraging on the success and learnings of this programme, we are committed to continue working with our partners to implement a new and enhanced model, TSP 2.0, which will be aligned to global trends and national aspirations."




With TSP 1.0, students will be able to thrive in the 21st century global environment through five critical life skills of confidence, communication, creativity, critical thinking and co-existence.
 This intervention model sees school administration teams, teachers and parents work together towards developing the potential of every learner. I sincerely hope that more corporations would come onboard and support this transformation journey as funds are very much needed in this public-private partnership.

Changing reverse sensor of MYVI

With busy active lifestyle, I found out that my car's reverse sensor is not working the day I went to collect the cake in Kuala Lumpur. There was another car wanting to park my parking spot. I had to reverse and I notice my car's sensor has no sound of beeping at all. I do worry if I am going to reverse into another car which is opposite lane of me. The driver that wanted my parking lot didn't want to me help me at all. Sean was holding the cake so he couldn't help me to see too. I got to slowly drive out of the parking lot.

I am happy that finally I have got the car reverse sensor changed. It cost RM150 for the set, yeah we did go through some shops to find out the price. There's one shop which is just next to 99 speedmart, it cost RM250 which is too expensive so we didn't want to change there. There's another shop which is same roll of the shoplot but its also near to the LRT station. It's new shop perhaps that still have the red cloth hanging on their shop's entrance.

Just two hours of changing and I got my car back. I was told there's one year warranty for it. My car is almost 9 years old, eventually I wanted a PINK MYVI which is Limited Edition but didn't go for it. I was told need to wait for at least 3 months for the car and it's also limited edition mean that is limited only available on selected outlet.

How about you? What color is your car? Is it your dream car?

McDonald's Malaysia Drive-Thru On-the-Go Lifestyles

Ronald McDonald; Felina Lim, Senior Director of Operations of McDonald’s Malaysia; Siti Hajar binti Johor, representative from the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR); Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia; and Andrew Samuel, Director of Operations of McDonald’s Malaysia after it was announced that McDonald’s Malaysia successfully set a new record for the “Largest Participation for a Drive-Thru Challenge in 24 Hours”  during the Drive-Thru Weekend Challenge held from 26-28 April.

Good day to dear readers and visitors, how's your day? Everyone has got busy lifestyle, and most people having the on-the-go lifestyle. We want to have a quick grab of food and meal if possible whenever we are in the rush. No worry you know there's McDonald's drive-thru it is very convenient for everyone these days.


McDonald's Malaysia is placing greater focus in its Drive-Thru business across the country in response to changing trends among customers who are increasingly seeking convenience, as well as fast and friendly service to complement their on-the-go lifestyles.


Busy mom life doesn't stop me from doing what I love. I go to the McDonald's drive-thru to buy food for my son. By the way do you know McDonald’s Malaysia is placing greater focus in its Drive-Thru business across the country in response to changing trends among customers who are increasingly seeking convenience, as well as fast and friendly service to complement their on-the-go lifestyles. The quick service restaurant’s leadership in the Drive-Thru business was further amplified during the recent Drive-Thru Weekend Challenge held from 26-28 April. Over the three days, a total of 473,860 cars zoomed off with their favourite McDonald’s meal from 167 McDonald’s Drive-Thru restaurants nationwide. The number of cars, if parked bumper to bumper, would be roughly equivalent to 150 times the length of the first Penang Bridge.


According to McDonald’s Malaysia Managing Director and Local Operating Partner Azmir Jaafar, the company is targeting to open 20 new McDonald’s Drive-Thru restaurants this year. This will complement the existing 167 Drive-Thru restaurants already in operations today.


“The Drive-Thru segment of our business has seen significant growth since the opening of our first Drive-Thru restaurant at McDonald’s Titiwangsa in 1988. And since then, the Drive-Thru segment has no doubt become an important key driver for the company, as Drive-Thru window sales contribute close to 50% of total sales for all 167 McDonald’s Drive-Thru restaurants. On top of that, we are seeing an average of 10 percent year-on-year growth in our Drive-Thru sales for 1Q 2019,” said Azmir.


“By 2021, McDonald’s Malaysia aims for 70 percent of all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide to be Drive-Thru restaurants,” added Azmir.


McDonald’s Malaysia places greater focus in its Drive-Thru business across Malaysia in response to changing trends among customers who are increasingly seeking convenience, as well as fast and friendly service to complement their on-the-go lifestyles.

Congratulations to McDonald's for successfully setting a new record on 27 April for the highest vehicle count accessing McDonald's Drive-Thru restaurants over the course of 24 hours, with a total of 164,235 vehicles. This led the company to be officially recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records for achieving the "Largest Participation for a Drive-Thru Challenge in 24 Hours".


An exciting consumer activation in conjunction with the Drive-Thru Weekend was also launched on the McDonald’s app from 17-30 April. The Drive-Thru Hero Challenge created much excitement amongst consumers as it encouraged them to drive-thru and check-in at as many McDonald’s Drive-Thru restaurants as possible to stand a chance of being among the Top 10 Drive-Thru Heroes. With 1 stop equalling 10 points, the Top 10 Heroes received cash based on their points. For others, every 5 stops at McDonald’s Drive-Thru unlocked offers on McDonald’s menu items.


McDonald's Malaysia had previously held the record for most vehicles participating in a Drive-Thru Challenge in August 2008, where 18,677 vehicles drove up to 53 McDonald's restaurants nationwide from 12pm to 3pm. A year prior, the record was 7,186 vehicles passing through 49 McDonald's Drive-Thru restaurants between 12pm to 2pm.


McDonald's Drive-Thru gives the convenient not just to parent but also to working adults too. Many of my friends have got morning rush to work, there's no way they can have their meal on time so they drive-thru to purchase meals to bring office to eat.


Nevertheless, we need to stay organized but being on the go can make it hard to stay organized when you have so many places to go and do in so little time. The list goes on for mom on the go like school drop off, pick up, sports, tuition, park days etc. When you have an on the go lifestyle, you can think of McDonald's Drive-Thru.

Family first? Have you think of you family?

Good evening to dear readers and followers. It's been a busy week indeed, busy lifestyle for me as my boys are school morning class for the youngest and Sean is schooling on afternoon class. That's not all, their tuition timing also different, so busy that I am alone handling both of them.

There's a lot to consider when you want to start a business. Recently some friends seek for my advice whether they should start the business or not. It's important to know whether there's capital for the business or not. Not just that also to look back on the previous business done whether it's been failing or making money. So many aspects that we need to look into also the family too.

Though we says that never give up on any failure. There's failure only there's success however if it's long term of failing, don't you think it's better to let it go. Not everyone is capable of being a business owner. Because of continuous of failing, and there's debt. You wouldn't want to burden your family.

Though I am not the best advisor, I know starting a business it not easy. There's need of cash flow to support the business. For example you are opening up a restaurant, you need to pay for the rent, renovation, staffs, utilities bills. If you have the cash flow that enough to support for the next six months or even longer perhaps you can come up with the proposal just in case you need a bank loan? Just saying...

This is just my personal opinion.

Getting your "couch kid" to be active

 Good day to everyone, welcome to my parenting blog. Today sharing with you about getting your "couch kid" to be active. I am mom of two boys, and being parent I need to understand of my kids, I know that my boys fitness personality are non-athletes.

What are the barriers of kids being active? Low interest, school demands like tuition, lack of active role models, parents' fear of letting kids play outdoors, etc.

I can't agree more due to hot and humid weather in Malaysia now, I fear of letting my kids to play outdoors. But we cannot be forever keep kids at home, so we need to see the timing to get activities such as visit lets say the playground. If we are going in the evening 6pm, put on sunscreen and mosquitoes repellent. 
 
 What motivate my kids to be active? Being active myself of course, parents are the role models to our children.

One of the recent fun activity that my son likes at the KidZania is the bubbly artwork, we went not long ago for the KidZania Kuala Lumpur 7th Anniversary. He had a good time creating the bubbly work using a straw and cups of water color for the artwork.



 Benefits of being active, especially in sports - what skills are developed?
My kids stay active when they have the time to visit the outdoor for example fun time of flying the planes. It will be a nice good sweating time while playing. Whenever they fly the planes and chasing and running after it to collect it.



Everyone has got busy lifestyle, it's important to keep our lifestyle balance. We spend quality time together whenever we can. Both my sons now studying at different school as his elder brother is now 13 years old. Both of them different time of studying and also attending tuition. I try to keep them active and spend quality time together as much as possible. It's weekends that we can get together more often.



My youngest son likes the challenge of wall climbing, he knows some day he will make it to the top. 

 Sports is more than a healthy pastime, it improves coordination, builds confidence and helps develop social skills. Games can also teach kids about cooperation and teamwork; these are the important aspects of growing up.

Last year, KidZania has got the sports programme of Football Fever.
 Football-themed Highlights at KidZania SportZ 2018:
* Futsal: Practice dribbling skills in a 2V2 match, or try to score a goal while blindfolded!
* Foosball: This intense game puts hand-eye coordination to the test. Great for all ages!
* Subbuteo: Try the new table-top football phenomenon!
* Football Video Game: This virtual challenge brings the game to life in a different way!
