The Kids Grow & Glow Run, organized by Cold Storage Malaysia is conjunction with Malaysia Day, indeed a good day for everyone to remember, it is the country's first-ever kids run to promote healthier eating and living within the community. Featuring the different stages of growth, the 1km race trail brought participants on a learning experience of life's evolution from birth to healthy adulthood. Throughout the race, participants were faced with several "growth obstacles", which required them, amongst others, to balance themselves across the beam or climb over an inflaable pyramid. The children also learned to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy food choices, and ultimately make the decision to take the correct food path to get to the finish line and claim their medal.

Speaking about the event, Mr. Pierre-Olivier Deplanck, CEO of GCH Retail (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd. said, "On top of being the first event of its kind to be organized by Cold Storage Malaysia, the Kids Grow & Glow Run is also the first kids run in Malaysia that features the different stages of growth. As The Fresh Food People, Cold Storage Malaysia has always aimed to inspire our customers to make healthy food choices by availing the finest selection of organic, fresh and high quality groceries in all our stores. Today's event is held specifically on Malaysia Day to bring this commitment even further. This is where we move ahead with our vision, to celebrate and embrace the nation's diversity whilst nurturing the next generation to choose to live healthy lifestyles. A healthy person equates a healthy mind, and we believe that it's never too early to instill the habit of eating and living healthily amongst children."
after the fun run, queue up the booth to redeem goodie using the coupons

After the race, each participant was rewarded with a medal and given a goody bag to be filled up with numerous prizes and products from the various sponsor booths. Amongst the event's main sponsors were Bestari, Dutch Lady, Mondelez and Haagen Dazs.

The inaugural Kids Grow & Glow Run also saw 40 children from MyKaish Foundation joining the race. They ran alongside Cold Storage Sweethearts and Volunteers towards a healthier life.

Through events such as this, children and their families may be encouraged to do even more things together, such as exercising regularly and even shopping for the right foods and to eat together!"Mr. Oliver-Pierre Deplank said in closing.

Review: Maobao Washing Machine Cleaner by Schelly

So often we been using the washing machine daily or at least 4 times a week. How often do you wash your washing machine? You can view the video I have made and you see so much of dirty out of my washing machine when cleaning. Today, I am sharing with you this product as I find it works for my washing machine.

Reasons to wash your washing machine regularly:

Did you know that your washing machine can be as dirty as your toilet? Studies have shown that bacteria and dirt can build-up behind the washing machine’s drum just after a month’s use. The debris from your dirty clothes are accumulated behind the drum overtime, where mold and other bacteria can grow and spread exponentially. Not forgetting microorganisms from your dirty clothes, especially underwear and socks.
There are a number of reasons why washing machines can have excessive build up:
-          Frequent use of fabric softener
-          Connection to an outside water tank
-          Higher than average use of machine (eg big family, tradesman’s work clothes etc)
-          Machine is approx 3 years old or older and never cleaned before
These dirt are usually removed through dismantling the washing machine and cleaning it manually, which are services offered by a number of external contractors or electricians, and may cost up to RM300 depending on the Year, Make & Model of your washing machine. The other issue lies within the re-assembly of the washing machine, where there are a number of people who’ve had complains about problems right after – could be problems after re-assembly, or even the lack of knowledge or experience from the electrician to do it correctly.
Which is why Maobao Washing Machine Cleaner by Schelly is a great alternative to this issue.
It’s also the No.1 best-selling brand in Taiwan!
Each box comes with 3x cleaning powder + 3x AG+ Silver Ion.
Removes up to 99.9% of bacteria, stubborn build-ups, odors, prevents mold and most importantly, keep it clean for your family.
It’s also laboratory-tested (SGS Labs) to ensure no harmful chemicals are used in the making of this product.

Maobao Washing Machine Cleaner by Schelly can be purchased online at
https://www.facebook.com/happyshoppermy/ at a promo price of RM25 per box
(NRP:RM33.90) + delivery.  It can a be a nice gift ideas for loved ones.

Kids Tour Guide:Johan Speaking Academy

Good evening to my dear readers and friends. How did you spend your last weekend? Today is Wednesday and it was the last day for Sean's school's tuition for this school holiday. He had a good time last week. I had sign up him for the Johan Speaking Academy for the Kids Tour Guide. It's a good outdoor experience for him and at the same time we get to know more about the farm animals.
This place we visited is Farm in the City, time fly as we last went was year 2014. 

The first day he had to attend the Kids Tour Guide program at Johan Speaking Academy at TTDI, this where he gets to know about what he got to do there and the team he will be in. Second day as you can see its the Farm in the City, the first hour they will tour the farm and know about the animal following a staff of farm to show them the way and explaining to them about the animal.
Sean attended the Kids Tasty Speech not long ago and it's his first time taking part in Kids Tour Guide. It's interesting program for children as they are put in group in a team of four person. Each is given a task and to remember the animal that they need to introduce to the tourist and let them know about the habitat of the animal. It's not going to be easy as they need to face the public to talk and show them the correct animal. They are tortoise and turtle farm, with wide range of rare and exotic tortoises and turtles. They explained to tourist that they are not allow to sit on the giant tortoises that they saw but they are allow to feed them. Sean's with his team members, he needs to talk about ostrich and goats to the tourists about the longevity of their lifestyle.

Everyday children are busy with their education and other activities which is planned by the parents. It's nice to enroll them to something different like kids public speaking. This give them chance to speak up and know more about them too. Through this Kids Tour Guide by Johan Speaking Academy I got to know of Sean's favorite animals.

Kids Tour Guide photo with the tourist

There's difference between Kids Tasty Speech and Kids Tour Guide as Kids Tasty Speech the kids stayed indoor while this they need to be outdoor to have real life experience and close to nature and animal.

With total of 15 Kids Tour Guide, after their have finished the Kids Tour Guide, they are given a chance to speak up about their favourite animal and ambition.

Each of them will have to queue up first to pick on a paper and they will open to see what is the number. This number represent when they will speak up on stage. Sean's was the 2nd to go on stage.
Thank you Johan and Cherry for the guidance, Sean has done a good job as Kids Tour Guide and we are proud of him.

The certificates are given to each one of them. There are two types of certificate, one is Johan Speaking Academy of Kids Tour Guide another is the certificate of Farm In The City. After that we can continue stayed in there until 6pm if we wish to. As the farm only closed at 6pm.
 Sean's continue his good time at the farm, he carefully handle the chick and give the tourist to hold.

There are food machines at the farm where tourist can purchase them to feed the animal. Sean's little brother had a good time, he ride on the horse a round for RM7. It's first time he ride a horse.
