It's never too early to plan for Prosperity

You know I love being Malaysian because I love to eat... pineapple tarts one of my favorite too! 

Cultural festivals celebrated in Malaysia are valued for one important reason: their predictability. From Deepavali to Aidilfitri, the masses return to familiar routines, customs, habits, and cuisine they commit themselves to once every year, usually in the company of friends, family and euphonious laughter. People already know what to expect when they balik kampung to celebrate the festivities with their loved ones, and it is precisely this anticipation to experience the familiar that only comes once a year which keeps such cultural celebrations alive. To usher in the Year of the Ram next Chinese New Year, SCS takes on the ambitious task of upgrading a familiar festival classic, the pineapple tart.

Chinese New Year is coming soon, I am sure many people are preparing baking for many types of cookies. I don't know baking pineapple tarts but I know where you can find recipes to bake them. Scroll down to read more info. 

For generations, this sweet and savoury bite-sized pastry is a must have for family reunions during the Chinese New Year and whose quality make for impassioned conversations between middle-aged aunties wanting to perfect their own pineapple tart recipes. The shape and size of these delectable treats differ from region to region but none have dared deviate from time-honoured proportions that produce the tarts’ distinctive flavour and aroma. It doesn’t take a connoisseur to know that the pastry itself plays an equally important role as the pineapple jam filling. Just as it is inconceivable to celebrate Chinese New Year without these tarts, the creation of buttery, fluffy, and crusty pineapple tarts is impossible without quality butter, like SCS butter.

However, easily replicated perfection simply by the procurement of the right ingredients is never an indication of innovation. As such, SCS takes a step further by introducing eight newly developed pineapple tarts, complemented with a variety of flavours, to enhance and update a much beloved classic. These new varietals include Pineapple Cream Cheese, Pecan Pineapple, Berrylicious Pineapple, Chocolate Brownie Pineapple, Caramel Pineapple, Creamy Mango and Pineapple White Chocolate, Oatmeal Pineapple, and Green Tea Pineapple.

Baking enthusiasts interested in the recipes for the pineapple tarts above can check out SCS’s Facebook page at or their YouTube channel at Recipe booklets for the tarts can also be obtained from select supermarkets. Coming January 2015, SCS will be launching an online-driven pineapple tart contest, so keep an eye out on their Facebook page for updates.

1600 Pandas World Tour in Malaysia

Yesterday morning I wake up early in the morning for a reason. I have a date with #1600PandasMY 

The 1600 pandas, along with French artist Paulo Grangeon, the "Father of 1600 Pandas" arrived in Malaysia. Malaysia is the third stop of 1600 Pandas World Tour in the Asian region, after its journey in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Themed "Initiating the Culture of Creative Conservation", the adorable pandas will begin their nationwide journey to more than 15 iconic landmarks in Malaysia from yesterday until 25 January 2015.

Debuting in Dataran Merdeka, the 1600 Pandas were welcomed in a spectacular event filled with excitement and great anticipation.

 Check out my instagram video for launch ceremony, click on the link. The momentous launch ceremony, which marks the beginning of the 1600 Pandas' trip across Malaysia, was graced by YB Dato' Mah Siew Keong, Minister in The Prime Minister's Department; Madam Ma Jia, Minister Counsellor, Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Malaysia and French sculptor artist and creator of the 1600 Pandas - Paulo Grangeon.

The tour is a creative artistic instrument in promoting a key message that conservation is a big concern in the world. This event also promote the message of environmental conservation. Tropical rainforests are an asset that requires careful governing and with 60% of Malaysia covered in greenery, this message should be amplified further within the local community.  

The message of animal welfare and conservation is one that needs to be constantly communicated to the public, as we all need to work hand in hand to maintain a sustainable ecosystem. 

The 1600 Pandas World Tour which started in 2008 as a collaboration between WWF and Paulo Grangeon, has since appeared in more than 100 exhibitions across various countries such as France, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Malaysia will be the 1600 Pandas' third stop after the Hong Kong in the Asia region.

Mark down this list of stopovers the 1600 Pandas will be making their appearance at :

  • Batu Caves, Selangor
  • Taiping Lake, Perak
  • The Stadhuys (Red Square), Melaka
  • National Monument, Kuala Lumpur
  • Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Penang

LetzHop Sesame Street English Learning Program

Last Saturday morning, mother and son were excited to attend the LetzHop Sesame Street English Learning Program. My son attended the the branch in Damansara Utama Branch (Damansara Uptown) located at No. 64A, 1st Floor, Jalan SS21/56, Damansarara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. For your info, the branch is located at corner lot, the PapaRich's upstair.   

LetzHop Eduspace Sdn Bhd brings to Malaysia, Sesame Street English – a comprehensive learning platform that caters to teaching children English. Designed by the non-profit educational group behind the iconic children’s TV series Sesame Street; the Sesame Workshop goes beyond just academic learning by focusing on creating a curriculum that addresses learning by encompassing all aspects of your child’s growth. 

Each child is greeted upon entering class in true Sesame Street style with a lot of laughter and a large dose of fun. My son and other children go into the class and learn, with the familiar faces of their favourite furry muppet characters. Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and the whole Sesame Street family are present in every aspect of the course from classrooms, from the wallpaper, the uniform, teaching exercises and even on the worksheets, everything has been officially licensed and comes directly imported from the Sesame Street Workshop.

The offered programs are suitable for children from age of 3 year to 12 years old.

Children enjoy themselves as you can see in the picture. Short video clip in instagram sherrygo,

Sesame Street English began as a simple idea in the United States to teach children through television and 40 years later is a worldwide educational phenomenon that has reached millions of children in more than 150 countries. Each programme is specifically tailored to the unique needs of children based on their country, culture and local educators, the Sesame Street English programme has produced sustainable quantifiable results. "Using today’s technology, Sesame Street English represents the evolution of the interactive learning experience, and engages and provides children with the opportunity to enjoy focused lessons that will build the foundation for English proficiency” - Sesame Workshop

The key mission of the Sesame Workshop is to harness the educational power of media to help children everywhere reach their highest potential. Classes are taught through media interaction with an emphasis on content learning, in the same way that the mother tongue is taught. Focusing on doing more than just ABCs and 123s, Sesame Street English allows the children to be able to interact with the Sesame Street characters via multimedia devices as well as through songs, dance and traditional academic worksheets. All of course outfitted with the names, faces and culture of Sesame Street.

The LetzHop Sesame Street branch is carpeted so children just need to remove their shoes to put in the colorful shoes rack that is near this wall of World map and 7 Continents.

Yeah there's a nice Ernie & Bert's Reading Area, below picture some reading material to show you. 

I can say kids fall in love to reading their favourite characters of Sesame Street. 

Wall of fame in one of the class, yeah it's all childrens' artwork.Can you spot the Cookie Monster? 

The environment, the characters and materials all work towards establishing a high impact productive environment that goes beyond just learning how to read and write. The Sesame Street characters become lifelong friends that will be there to teach, learn and guide your child through all the critical development points of their early years.
Things that I believe parents will not have their children messing up with colors.

It's alright you can do it in LetzHop Sesame Street, look how each child is having great time with each other. 

Above Puan Sarini Bujang, Principle of LetzHop, Damansara Uptown Branch. She explains of what color being used and also it is alright to be messy because they are having fun painting activities. The children were pointing on the right color to use? Hehe.. it's fun also to test the children to see if they are paying attention in the class. 

Working together with like-minded foundations such as LetzHopTM has been the critical link in continuing the growth of the Sesame Workshop. LetzHopTM is set to bring the Malaysian edutainment market to the next level with the introduction of Sesame Street English; the class brings a new take on interactive entertainment so that children grow to learn that education and fun go hand in hand.

Pretty creative artwork activities done by the children. 

The lessons covered from developing the foundation of English language through expose to language via songs, chants, videos and other fun, child friendly activities to complex content such as reading, writing, grammar and several relevant aspects via a smartboard. As above my son was looking for the book, it was fun for the children as they took turn to try finding the book. The smartboard is a touch screen device. 

Can you guess the song they are going to sing? Scroll down this post to find the video clip of the song.

Puan Aishah Abdul Rahman, Executive Director of Letzhop Eduspace Sdn Bhd says “Malaysia is a tri-lingual country with the main language being Malay, but English remains an important part of our lives. The Sesame Street English programme aims to not only teach but inspire and give children the confidence to speak English as a native speaker.
