GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceutical Sdn. Bhd. (GSK Malaysia) on 12 November 2019 launched 

its Vaccinate for Life campaign in Malaysia to raise awareness and educate the public on

the importance of vaccinations and vaccine preventable diseases. Backed by a long 

standing legacy in Malaysia for the past 60 years, GSK a science-led global company with a 

purpose, through this campaign, aims to highlight the importance of vaccination throughout

Launched in conjunction with World Pneumonia Day underlining pneumonia as one the most common vaccine preventable diseases, the campaign demonstrates how vaccines in action can help protect the lives of children aged five and below. 

I am mom of two children, both having different time of schooling and tuition. I am glad I took time off to attend and witness this meaningful event.

Pneumonia is today one of the leading causes of deaths in children, accounting for 18% of all deaths of children under five worldwide. Children under five years old are particularly susceptible to the disease especially those with compromised immune systems which may be weakened by malnutrition or undernourishment, especially in infants who are not exclusively breast-fed in spite of it being preventable and treatable in many cases3.

In Malaysia, pneumonia is listed as one of the top five causes of death according to the Department of Statistics Malaysia.,6 Pneumonia was the principal cause of death for the population aged 0 to 14 years in 2018 at 4.8 per cent.

Pneumonia, a lung infection, can be caused by different bacteria, viruses and even fungi. Pneumococcal disease, in either invasive or non-invasive forms, is an infection caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria (pneumococcus).1, Pneumococcus can cause various types of infections, some of which can be life-threatening.1 One of the most common causes of severe pneumonia is pneumococcus bacteria.2 Besides pneumonia, pneumococcus bacteria can also cause ear and sinus infections (non-invasive).1

‘Invasive’ pneumococcal bacteria can invade the bloodstream causing bloodstream infection (bacteremia) and meningitis (infection of the tissues and fluids covering the brain and spinal cord).1,2

Pneumonia is today one of the leading causes of deaths in children, accounting for 18% of all deaths of children under five worldwide. Children under five years old are particularly susceptible to the disease especially those with compromised immune systems which may be weakened by malnutrition or undernourishment, especially in infants who are not exclusively breast-fed in spite of it being preventable and treatable in many cases3.

In Malaysia, pneumonia is listed as one of the top five causes of death according to the Department of Statistics Malaysia.,6 Pneumonia was the principal cause of death for the population aged 0 to 14 years in 2018 at 4.8 per cent.

The incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) according to a 4-year study (2014 – 2017) was estimated at 3.8 per 100 000 cases each year in Malaysia in children aged five years and below.

While pneumococcal disease is a very serious illness, invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) is deadly as it is an invasive bacteria infection in children. Children under two years of age fall into the highest general risk group for IPD.

There are vaccines to prevent pneumococcal disease in children and adults.2 The introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCV) in many countries worldwide has helped to reduce infant deaths from pneumonia. Globally, while an estimated 71.3 million infants have received PCV, at the end of 2018, there were 55 million infants who still had no access to PCV.

“Next to clean drinking water, vaccination is the most powerful public health policy in preventing infectious diseases. We at GSK, believe that every child deserves access to vaccination. Through vaccination it has been demonstrated that diseases such as small pox can be eradicated. With improving healthcare policies and access we will continue to see the elimination of mortality and morbidity due to infectious diseases,” said Dr. Ashwini Saha, Vaccine Medical Director, GSK Malaysia.
Dr. Ashwini Saha (Vaccine Medical Director, GSK Malaysia) presenting at the media launch of the ‘Vaccinate for Life’ campaign.

GSK’s Vaccinate for Life campaign, launched in conjunction with World Pneumonia Day on 12 November, was attended by Dato’ Dr. Musa Mohd Nordin, Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatologist, Dr. Yong Junina Fadzil, Consultant Paediatrician and Paediatric Cardiologist, Dr. Lien Pham, General Manager, GSK Malaysia and Mr. David Lin, Communications & Government Affairs Director, GSK Malaysia.

With a 60 year footprint in healthcare in Malaysia, GSK remains committed to their patient focus values reiterated by Vaccinate for Life with a two-fold objective :
  • To provide information on vaccine preventable diseases to the public to support them to make informed decisions on their healthcare.
  • To highlight the importance of vaccinating throughout one’s life.

We truly support the Ministry of Health’s call for children to be vaccinated against pneumococcal disease. We certainly welcome the much-awaited news on the inclusion of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) into the National Immunisation Programme (NIP),” said Mr. David Lin.
Mr. David Lin explains the Vaccinate for Life Campaign and its objective.

“GSK’s Vaccinate for Life campaign extends beyond just a call for vaccination against pneumonia and IPD. Vaccination doesn’t stop at childhood as it helps give children a healthy start in life. It is not something you outgrow as vaccination is needed throughout one’s life to protect against preventable diseases and to prevent diseases from spreading in the community, ” explained Mr. David Lin.

As one of the leading manufacturers of vaccines, GSK has 41 vaccines globally to help protect people at every stage of life, from childhood right through to adolescence, pregnancy and beyond for example vaccines that protect against pneumococcal and HPV. In Malaysia, GSK’s wide range of vaccines encompasses 12 vaccines indicated for children, eight for adolescents and another eight for adults and the healthy ageing population.
Dato’ Dr. Musa Mohd Nordin speaking during the panel discussion

Emphasising the importance of vaccination, Dato’ Dr. Musa shared, “As we age, our immune system does too. This makes us vulnerable to life-threatening diseases. By strengthening our immune system with vaccination through scheduled administration of vaccines, we can certainly protect ourselves and those closest to us and eventually help save lives. The vaccinations we receive as children can certainly protect us from life-threatening or debilitating diseases and lays the foundation for a stronger immunity later in life.”
Dr. Yong Junina Fadzil speaking during the panel discussion.

Dr. Yong Junina Fadzil added, “There is a huge misconception about vaccinations and its implications on a child’s health. On-going education, collaborations with healthcare professionals as well as affirmative action by policymakers can change people’s mindsets. The Government’s move to include the pneumococcal vaccine into the NIP is indeed laudable and it exemplifies the importance of getting children vaccinated against this infectious disease. Just like regular exercise and a healthy diet, diligently keeping to a scheduled vaccination programme is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Ensuring the health of our children will ensure the health of our nation.”

Lets spread the awareness of this campaign. Sharing is caring, as not everyone aware of this though its already on the news.

SuperDayCamp Provides Children With an Early Head-start Through The Power of Play


Everyone has got busy lifestyle, what better way to spend our weekend? With daily busy lifestyle we know that not just parents kids too need a break. We visited the SuperPark Malaysia, the friendliest all-in-one indoor activity park originating from Finland, yesterday introduced SuperDayCamp, a unique school holiday programme packed with exciting guided sporting activities. This camp promises one to three days of fun and happiness in a safe indoor environment to foster fitness, social-cognitive abilities and teamwork during the year end school holidays in November and December.


Designed and approved by the Finland Education Board, largely regarded as one of the best education systems in the world, SuperDayCamp provides a gadget-free alternative for all children between the ages of four to ten years old. With a small 1:7 coach-to-child ratio, campers will be guided through a series of engaging play activities within the park to develop physical, mental and emotional wellbeing while making new friends in a supervised and fun environment. SuperPark coaches aim to inspire participants with the power of sports while giving them a boost in confidence, motivation and leadership to grow and be successful in school and in life.



“Extending our core concept of the ‘power of play’, SuperDayCamp strengthens relationship, builds trust and supports self-confidence, giving children an early head-start in developing a strong foundation of important life skills. Certified by the Finnish Education Board, this day camp offers a multi-layered learning experience where participants can break a sweat while having fun in a social setting. It is conducted in an environment free from outside elements such as rain and heat, offering parents peace of mind on the whereabouts of their children this school holiday,” said Andes S.H Wong, Senior Marketing Manager, SuperPark Malaysia.

It was reported recently that more than half of Malaysian adolescents choose a sedentary lifestyle, preferring to sit for hours without any physical activities. They are also increasingly reliant on gadgets as some have been using digital devices as young as two to three years old.


Speaking at the launch event, Charlene Marie Samuel, Director of Autism Behavioral Center and a trained Applied Behavior Analysis therapist said, “Active play time is crucial for a child’s overall development especially during their formative years. It allows them to learn important skills like problem-solving, working in teams, pushing boundaries, and adapting to new environments – all of which will be extremely useful as they grow older.”

 My son having a good time at the Super Day Camp, as you can see the above photo the children are guided through a series of engaging play activities within the park. My son was shy and he gets along after he started engaging in the activities, he also build confidence in paddle the bicycle on his own later on.


My son didn't know how to paddle on two wheels bicycle, this is good practice for him. On the spot, he gets to learn on how to control his balance and moving left to right to avoid hitting the cones. He has the confidence to paddle on himself after the practice of paddle he learned the skill from there.

My son is so happy as after the day camp, he continue the fun activities in the park. He was given a choice of choosing big or small paddle bicycle. He chosen the big paddle bicycle to paddle. You can check out the short video I have added in the post. It's fun indoor park where I don't have to worry about my son when there's rain or heat outside.

It's good activities for children as it's also time to removing their gadgets so that they can have a series of engaging play activities within the park to develop physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Ghouls, goblins and of course candies are what Halloween is all about

Last month October, did you bring your children for any Halloween activities? My son had a good spooky fun Halloween activities in the month of October. Today, I am sharing with you a video which my son enjoyed himself during the Trick or Treat at the Curve. It's first time he went this mall for Halloween trick or treat.

Ghouls, goblins and of course candies are what Halloween is all about. In celebration of the spookiest time of the year, the Curve and eCurve entertained patrons with a thrilling yet fun experience at both malls during Halloween.


Both malls were decked out in cute Halloween decorations complete with grinning jack-o-lanterns and skeletons sprawled against gnarled trees which greeted visitors as they entered the premises. Adding on to the mysterious ambiance were creepy crawlies and bats dangling on the tree branches, which made for a fang-tastic time for all!


As an added treat for kids, the Curve and eCurve also hosted a trick-or-treating session, where a group of 70 children dressed up in their wackiest and most creative costumes to go around selected tenants to receive candies, gifts and various other goodies.

My son says he likes the Halloween trick or treat and its his hard work going through it so he deserves all the candies he gets. Sharing is caring he did shared it with his brother and me. It was nice to accompany him on this Halloween trick or treat, it's good having a weekend spend with him. His brother and dad too were in the same mall, they waited for us til it over.


 Gina Long Ahmad, Acting Centre Manager, the Curve said, “Halloween has gained more popularity with Malaysians over the years, which is why we decided to bring back the Halloween trick-or-treating activity for the third time this year! As a family-oriented mall, it is of our utmost importance to organise family friendly activities, where kids and their parents can join in on the fun too. We hope our little participants had a blast going around the mall and making some new friends along the way as well.”


Its important to balance our lifestyle, if you like to know more bout the year end activities please visit www.curve.com.my or their  Facebook: www.facebook.com/theCurveShoppingMall

'PARTNERS IN PARENTING’ EQUIP MUMS AND DADS ON THEIR PARENTING JOURNEY


 Good day to dear readers and visitors of my blog. Everyone has got a busy lifestyle, especially parents. Juggling from work and chores at home, there's more when it comes to newborn baby. Becoming a parent can be the greatest yet most challenging experience with both joyful as well as stressful moments. No parent can ever be fully prepared for the role. Each day offers a new learning curve and for young parents, access to a knowledge and support network is priceless to help them manage the huge responsibility that comes with having a newborn.

Tollyjoy Baby Day 2019 launches Partners in Parenting with YB Hannah Yeoh (standing L to R)Ben Ashaari (Blogger Dad), Charles Wong (Executive Director, Tetap Tiara), Pn Suzliana Abd Hamid (Deputy Director, Selangor Public Library Corporation, PPAS), Hannah Yeoh (Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development), Mark Tan (Director, Tollyjoy Corporation), Pn Nor Aishah Osman (Trustee of OrphanCARE Foundation), Ms Khor Geok Kee (Director, Tolloyjoy Corporation)& Alan Oh (Confinement Dad)

Understanding this psyche and the need to journey with parents as they bring up their babies, Tollyjoy Corporation has collaborated with PPAS (Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Selangor) Jaya One and OrphanCare Foundation (OrphanCare) to launch Partners in Parenting,an educational platform that will bring together parents and subject matter experts to share insights, experiences and knowledge while forging a ‘parent support network’; all with a view to help young parents navigate the journey of raising up and establishing strong bonds with their babies.

They can assume a supportive role to their wives after childbirth and adopt a hands-on approach in caring for their infants. These are pivotal building blocks to nurture strong families which will,inturn,contribute to strong communities.
Unveiling of Partners in Parenting on Tollyjoy Baby Day 2019 by YB Hannah Yeoh, alongside Mr Mark Tan (Director, Tollyjoy Corporation)

This session featured prominent social influencer and full-time father,Ben Ashaari and confinement’ dad,Alan Oh who ensured that the right care and confinement practices were adhered to.

In sharing his experience as a full-time digital in fluencer dad, Ben said that he chose to opt out from the work force to be a full-time father as he was concerned about placing his three children under child-care support. His decision made a significant difference for his wife as she was able to return to full-time work. “I am a walking testament that it is possible to assume a full-time father’s role to lend a positive effect on the well-being of our children’s future. As a father, it is important to be a great support to your child and your spouse as well. I strongly believe that a nurturing, loving father provides a vital foundation to a strong family,added Ben. 

Meanwhile,Alan Oh assumed a unique role quite unlike that of any other father. He focused on being a confinement dad. He learnt about confinement practices and helped nurture his wife back to optimal health, there by allowing her to focus on caring for their newborn baby.

“The arrival of a newborn is a period where parenting is at its toughest, especially for young parents.However, it is also the most rewarding time if the mother and baby are given their space to flourish. It is an excellent time to create wonderful memories with the mother and this can be a powerful force of bonding between the parents and the newborn baby,enthused Oh. 

I am glad that I am there for the launched, its good to know their sharing on parenting experienced as fathers by Ben and Alan. Raising a child takes both mom and father commitment and tolerance to support each other for the well being in the family.

In the course of the year, Partners in Parentingwill feature a wide range of topics covering pre-pregnancy, post-pregnancy, babies and toddlers health and juggling motherhood beyond pregnancy. 


I am sure you like to know where the topics going to be held. The sessions will be held at PPAS, Jaya One.
