 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.

 Partners in Parenting’ kicked off with a focus on Inspiring Stories from Hands-on Dads.Indeed, raising a child is not solely the mum’s responsibility.Fathers play a crucial role in shaping a child’s cognitive,emotional and social development. 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.

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. For more information on Partners in Parentingsessions, stay connected with them. ‘Like’ the Facebook page and ‘follow’ their Instagram page

McDonald’s and RMHC boost students’ morale ahead of the 2020 school year

Good day dear readers and visitors of my blog. Sharing is caring, and I would like to share about an event that I recently attended, which was organised by McDonald's Malaysia. McDonald’s Malaysia and its charity of choice, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Malaysia,launched the “Back-to-School” 2019 programme on 18 October 2019, marking the third year of the programme. This year,30,000 primary school children nationwide will receive “Back-to-School” packs to motivate and spur them to study hard when attending school.Through its ‘Scale for Good’ strategy where McDonald’s leverages the strength of its brand to create a positive impact on communities, societies, and the planet, RM3 million was successfully raised under this programme this year to ease the financial burdens of under privileged as well as urban poor families ahead of the upcoming school year.

Everyone has a busy lifestyle and parents are working, while children are studying in school. We need to balance our lifestyles to have some bonding time with our children. Have you ever thought about children who are less fortunate than ours?
“McDonald’s Malaysia believes that education is a crucial area that requires uncompromised attention. These children are the future of our nation, and we strongly believe that each of them deserves to be given the right opportunities to succeed. We understand that the cost of school expenses can be quite daunting for parents and guardians at the start of each school year. So we hope that this contribution, in its own way, will provide relief to alleviate any financial concern for families,” said Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia. 

The “Back-to-School” programme this year will be the largest so far, with RM3 million raised. In 2018, McDonald’s Malaysia delivered “Back-to-School”packs worth RM1.7 million to 17,000 primary school students, compared to the previous year, which saw McDonald’s Malaysia and RMHC reaching out to 6,000 students with RM1.2 million raised. Each child will receive a “Back-to-School” pack, consisting of a set of school uniform, a pair of shoes,and a school bag worth RM100 under this programme. When going back to school, the important things for children are not just their school uniforms but also their shoes,socks and a school bag. The backpacks would help motivate the school children to start the 2020 school year with excitement. And, this would also make them happy and secure by having their own backpacks that they can use daily for school.

The Back-to-School programmeis one of the initiatives under the Ministry of Education’s collaboration programme with McDonald’s Malaysia in 2019.

Among McDonald's Malaysia’s partners who have contributed to the initiative include Kerry Ingredients Sdn Bhd, Visa Worldwide Pte. Limited, Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Bhd, Aladdin Pacific(M) Sdn Bhd, Glades Guppy Packaging Malaysia Sdn Bhd, and Huhtamaki Foodservice Malaysia Sdn Bhd.  

Deputy Education Minister YB Teo Nie Ching was also present at the event as the guest of honour to distribute Back-to-Schoolpacks at Sekolah Kebangsaan Klang Gate for the launched.

“The Ministry of Education is very pleased with the initiative undertaken by McDonald's Malaysia and RMHC Malaysia.In fact, this is in line with the Ministry's commitment to provide quality education to all students, which also includes providing necessities and school supplies,”said Deputy Education Minister YB Teo Nie Ching.

Indeed, poverty and financial hardship are among the issues that lead to student dropouts in primary and secondary schools.The implementation of theBack-to-School programme by a private entity such as McDonald’s Malaysia is not only an added value,but is also an example of a public-private partnership which the Ministry encourages for the benefit of the community. It is also my hope that the programme will boost the confidence of these children to go to school,”added YB Teo Nie Ching. 

As now you know this programme is a collaborative effort between McDonald's Malaysia, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Malaysia and the Ministry of Education Malaysia. It is targeted for the underprivileged and urban poor primary school children in Malaysia, to motivate them and to start the 2020 school year on a high note.

The “Back-to-School” packs will also be distributed in stages throughout other states nationwide until the end of the year,as part of McDonald’s Malaysia’s Community Program that encompasses various community initiatives to support under privileged children.All of these efforts by McDonald’s is to really bring cheer to the children in need across Malaysia.

RMHC is McDonald’s Malaysia’s charity of choice that aims to help underprivileged children in Malaysia. We can give a helping hand by donating to RHMC donation boxes, as every centcounts. Members of the public and McDonald’s customers can also play their part in this ongoing initiative by dropping their donation into the RMHC donation boxes at all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide.

Come 2020, more than 53,000 primary school children would have benefited from McDonald's Malaysia and RMHC's 'Back-to-School' programme! 

Sharing is caring,and I urge all of you to be a part of this by donating or volunteering for RMHC Malaysia. Please contact the headquarters of RMHC Malaysia at 03-7843 3388 or visit  to make an impact on a child’s life.

Thank you,McDonald's Malaysia for inviting me!I'm happy to have witnessed the happy faces of the children with their 'Back-to-School' backpacks. It's really good to see McDonald's Malaysia’s continuous commitment in giving back to the community within which it operates in.
