The stellar voice cast includes Kelly Osbourne as the bumbling novice witch Hildy Gloom, and Jay Leno and Whoopi Goldberg in the recurring roles of Crystal Ball and Magic Mirror, respectively.

Standing in their way are two laughably evil villains, Grim and Hildy Gloom, who plot to take over the kingdom by stealing the magical jewels in the 7D's mine.

When summoned by The Bing Bong Bell, a magical bell that descends from the sky when Queen Delightful wishes to call upon the 7D, the brave little heroes rush to their fair ruler's side. Whether it be saving the village from a terrorizing giant or uncovering the Queen's missing Magic Mirror, the 7D find a way to accomplish each task much to the chagrin of Lord Starchbottom, the Queen's loyal aide who would prefer to handle any crisis on his own.

She made her debut as an actress with a starring role on the ABC high school teen drama "Life As We Know It”, where she played the supporting role of Deborah Beatrice Tynan, and appeared on season nine of ABC's smash hit reality competition series "Dancing with the Stars”. Osbourne's feature film credits include a cameo in Mike Meyers' "Austin Powers in Goldmember," "Should've Been Romeo" and the upcoming "So Undercover," in which she stars with Miley Cyrus.

"Grim Gloom"
Emmy Award-nominated voice actor Jess Harnell voices the role of Grim Gloom, the dim-witted warlock that together with his wife Hildy seeks to wreak havoc on the land of Jollywood. Recognized for his versatility in the voiceover world, Harnell is no stranger to playing the ill-fated antagonist as he also stars as the voice of Cedric, the royal sorcerer in Disney Junior's Annie Award-winning "Sofia the First,” in addition to the softer, more benevolent role of Chilly, a stuffed snowman, in Disney Junior's acclaimed animated series "Doc McStuffins."
One of the preeminent voice actors in the business, Harnell's voice can be heard in some of the biggest blockbuster animated films of all time, including Disney's "Finding Nemo," "Up," "Cars" and "Cars 2," and all three "Toy Story" movies. On the small screen, Harnell has voiced characters on "The Simpsons," "The Fairly Odd Parents," and Disney Junior's "Special Agent Oso."

Paul Jambunathan, Clinical Psychologist,
John Soo, Deputy Managing Director of Pigeon Malaysia,
Saiton-san, Chief Investigator or Breastfeeding Laboratory from Toyko
Lilian Chan, a mom who enjoys breastfeeding,
Moderated by Shaz from Life FM

Being mommy of two boys, my first child I had exclusively breastfeeding him until himself weaned at aged of three and half years old. It's a challenge for moms to breastfeed newborn, I didn't give up on breastfeeding him I started with pumping breast milk, then when he's around 4 months I decided to try breastfeeding him directly, indeed the moment of joy having my son to be able latch on is wonderful. 

"How to Overcome Challenge Breastfeeding Working Mother Face". Paul Jambunathan, clinical psychologist and a name many Malaysians are familiar with, will be part of the panel to highlight the psychological aspects of breastfeeding, such as breastfeeding mothers' psychological health and providing emotional support to a breastfeeding mother. 

 Other panellists are John Soo, managing director of Pigeon; Satoru Saito, Pigeon's general manager and chief investigator of the company's breastfeeding laboratory; and Lilian Chan, a breastfeeding mother of two boys. She's a career woman too, she would pumped her breast milk if she's away for working.

It's good to know she has supportive family.

The mother's psychological health plays a big role, according to consultant clinical pyshologist Paul Jambunathan. Paul's wife breastfed their two daughters up until they were two years old. Contrary to popular belief, while breastfeeding is nature's best, the act itself does not come instinctively. Both mother and baby have to learn, which, on top of all the busyness of having a newborn, can be frustratng at times. This could be compounded by post-partum depression, which a majority of mothers tend to experience. Support in family and friends are important for breastfeeding mothers.

John Soo, Deputy Managing Director of Pigeon Malaysia also shares his experience on his breastfeeding journey of his wife. By the way, he's happy dad of third child at aged 50 years old.

At the same time, they also introduce Pigeon's new and improved breast pumps specially designed to provide an efficient, comfortable and discreet method to express breast milk. Backed by extensive R&D, Pigeon's new breast pumps feature better suction and strength controls as well as its trademarked Comfort ProperFit™ flange for that perfect fit.

On the spot during the event, we can see three types of Pigeon Breast Pump and products.

In this event, there's Pigeon Breast Pump launch, Pigeon's three revamped breast pumps comprise a Manual breast pump, Electric Portable breast pump and the Electric breast pump - Pro. Each has been designed to be customisable according to a mother's individual comfort levels.
Pigeon Breast Pump Pro RM790

Pigeon Breast Pump Portable RM350

Pigeon Breast Pump Manual RM199

All three pumps are equipped with Pigeon's trademarked Comfort ProperFit flange, which comes in two sizes for that perfect fit. The Comport ProperFit is a silicon cover with wings to hug the breast and inner curves form a seal to prevent air bubbles, one of the reasons that hamper proper milk extraction.

 Yesterday I attended the Tollyjoy's World Breastfeeding Week on the breastfeeding workshop at Tropicana Medical Centre, it's good info for new parents and mommies to be where they can know and find out about goodness of breastmilk. Dr Anushree Narayanan, Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatalogist is there to explains the goodness of breast milk to newborns. 

Being a parent is around the clock job, it's undoubtedly one of the most exciting journeys to step into. For mothers, the experience is taken a step further as they approach the essential task of breastfeeding. Special for many reasons, breastfeeding could make a world of difference for both mother and baby in terms of health as well as on the level of bonding. This year celebrating of World Breastfeeding Week, Tollyjoy shared in the support for mothers by organizing an exclusive breastfeeding workshop centered on breastfeeding health and personal journeys.

Above picture where Dr Anushree Narayanan, Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatalogist explains on
Breast milk composition differences
Gestational age at birth
(preterm and full term)
Stage of lactation
(colustrum and mature milk)
During a feed
(foremilk and hindmilk)

 Organized in collaboration with Tropicanal Medical Centre (TMC), the workshop was held to promote the importance of breastfeeding and its health benefits, which extends well beyond basic nutrition or emotional bonding. If there were a single most effective way to care for the health of a newborn, it would be through exclusive breastfeeding - for at least the first six months. Besides being proven to protect babies against illness, breastfeeding also offers benefits that stays with mothers for years.

Breastfeeding journey can be challenging especially for new or working mother. From experience, it would took a lot of preparation to get through the early weeks, and then back to daily work routine. Breastfeeding mom will needs lot of supports not just from spouse but colleague or family members to continue breastfeeding journey.

During the talk on "The Goodness of Breastmilk", Dr Anushree Narayanan, Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatalogist shared that only 5% of women truly have a lack of breast milk; which means that with the right support and information, 95% of mothers should be able to breastfeed their infants.
