Better Heart Health with Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats

As I grow older, I am more concern on my health including Heart health and cholesterol. One reason is I have a lot of friends and colleagues with Heart health issue and another reason is because my husband-side has the genetic high cholesterol history.
hanks to the newly launched Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats, we can now power up our hearts with this first-in-market combined action of two naturally-derived cholesterol-lowering ingredients, Acticol ® and Beta-glucan.
The launch event of Nestlé Omega Plus® was held at One World Hotel in Bandar Utama on 24th May 2016. We’ve got to learn more about Heart Health and how Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats helps to boost up our Heart Health.
In fact, Nestlé Omega Plus®, Malaysia’s heart health advocator has introduced the one of its kind of health beverage that contains Acticol® which is naturally derived from plant sterols, which has been scientifically proven to block cholesterol from entering the bloodstream. It works simultaneously with Beta-glucan from oats that binds with cholesterol in the gut and removes it from the body.
This dual-action of blocking and removing cholesterol, or “The Power of Two”, helps Malaysians manage cholesterol levels more effectively, compared to the consumption of oats alone.

Preventative heart care is not a top-of-mind consideration for most Malaysian adults, as heart disease is usually perceived as an illness that affects the elderly. However, research has proven otherwise, showing that Malaysians in their thirties have arteries akin to those in their seventies due to their lifestyles.

What Your Child’s Poop is Telling You

My younger girl just had a hard time in toilet just now. Pity her as she had to suffers from constipation. I know that most kids will experience constipation at one point or another but do you know our child’s poop is actually an indicator to their health? 
As tomorrow, Sunday, 29th May 2016 is World Digestive Health Day, I would like to share this informative article with all my readers as I found it really useful. As a parents of two sweet girls, I hope this helpful information will help other parents too.
When it comes to toilet habits, it is not exactly a favourable topic in your daily conversation. We may not pay attention to our child’s poop everyday, however it is one of the indicators of your child’s gut health. Having a healthy gut helps your child to digest and absorb important nutrients from food which is essential for the healthy development of your growing child. Here are some tips which can help promote a healthy gut for your child.
What’s Normal, What’s Not?

Poop is also known as feces or stool, which is waste matter that is discharged from the bowels after food has been digested. The poop may vary everyday, depending on what your child has eaten. By keeping track of the changes in fecal features, such as shape, size, color, frequency and also consistency, you are able to understand your child’s gut health and ensure their overall health and well-being.

The Bristol Stool Chart[1] is a useful guide commonly used by paediatricians that can assist you to distinguish types of stool.

·         Type 1 and 2 suggest a potential risk of constipation
·         Type 3 and Type 4 are normal stools which indicate a healthy gut
·         Type 5, 6 and 7 suggest potential risks of infection or diarrhea, to which parents are advised to seek medical advice for the welfare of their children

Common symptoms of constipation generally involve infrequent, difficult, painful or incomplete release of hardened stools in children. When food residue remains in the large intestine for an extended period of time, too much water can be absorbed, and as a result, stools become harder and drier. When your child is trying to pass a large or hard stool, it will stretch the rectal walls and may lead to tearing and bleeding[2]. This makes it even more painful for the child to pass motion and causes the child to continue “holding it”, out of fear or anxiety to avoid the unpleasant experience of passing hard stools, thereby creating a vicious cycle.

Parents are advised to keep an eye on the tell-tale signs of your child attempting to withhold bowel movements, such as squatting, rocking, stiff walking or crossing of the legsiii.

Constipation: Prevention is the Key

There are many factors that can contribute to constipation in children, such as variations in diet, developmental stage, environmental issue, emotional status or illness. To prevent constipation in your child and maintain a good gut health, here are a few recommendations:

1.       Diet. Consistently offer foods rich in dietary fibre, such as whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables in you and your child’s diet. Children from 3-6 years old are recommended to consume 2 servings of fruits and 2 servings of vegetables daily[3]. Parents have great influence on children’s eating habits, so if your children see you eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, they are more likely to follow your lead and be more receptive to all the food you consume. Hence, it is important for you to be a role model to your children.

Nando’s Art Initiative Presents Yvonne Chong Shi Qi’s ‘Garden of Goddesses’

Have you heard of Nando’s Art Initiative before? This yearly event is a wonderful programme for the young ones to pursuit their dreams. As part of Nando’s continuous commitment and support to the winners of Nando’s Art Initiative, Nando’s Lot 123, Chinatown is having the art exhibition of The Digital Grand Prize winner of Nando’s Art Initiative 2014, Yvonne Chong Shi Qi. The talented artist is excited for her first solo art exhibition that showcase her collection of artworks entitled ‘Garden of Goddesses’.
Yvonne Chong Shi Qi

The exhibition is an insight to Yvonne’s fascination and passion for the World of myths and fairy tales. From a very young age she had always found herself constantly being drawn to the world of mythical Gods and Goddesses. The theme of this exhibition is to portray the kinship shared between each goddess and their mortal counterpart. 
Her unique style is strongly inspired by the works of Frida Kahlo which are focused mainly on self-portraits with intricate elements of nature. Thrown into the mix of inspiration is also a bit of surrealism and the art nouveau movement. Putting together a fantasy, dreamlike imagery and pairing it with soft feminine features provides her with a sense of calm and serenity.

Immersive Shopping Experience at Markets by Jaya One #markets18

I love shopping at Bazaar, and my favourite Markets by Jaya One, the celebrated shopping experience hosted by Jaya One has wrapped up its two-day bazaar catered to fashion devotees, food aficionados and lifestyle enthusiasts which place on 14 and 15 May from 11am to 7pm on the Ground Floor, The School.
This 18th installment boasted a whopping 120 vendors, being the biggest Markets to date. It has definitely come a long way since its humble beginnings, congratulations! My family had enjoyed the food, entertainment, and shopping at Markets 18 a lot. 
We love the kids’ friendly air-conditioner indoor shopping environment as well as the outdoor food trucks that gave us different dining experience. It’s truly an Immersive Shopping Experience at Markets by Jaya One.
The main sponsor of Markets 18 - imSold, a buying and selling app hosted a variety of games, one of which participants had an opportunity to sell items provided by imSold to random strangers through the app. Participants walked away with cash vouchers as well as the money made from the sale. Not too bad of a day to be a contestant! Aside from that, there was also a treasure hunt where one lucky contestant walked away with cash vouchers worth RM160 to shop at Markets.
An ice cream eating contest sponsored by Jersey Jack Gelato had participants fighting through a brain freeze by being the quickest to finish two scoops of ice cream! On top of that, participants who successfully reenacted certain movie scenes were given free tickets to Potted Potter by Milestone Productions.
Apart from shopping and food, music was certainly an element not to be missed at Markets 18. Up-and-coming musicians such as Hameer Zawawi, a singer-songwriter, Djezna's Stalker as well as Nan Blues amazed the crowd with their music performances. Day 2 featured the likes of Three Octaves, a three piece acoustic rock band, and the day closed with Ray Cheong, a singer-Songwriter cum guitarist who has performed in countless venues all over the states in Malaysia and continents of Southeast Asia, United Kingdom and Europe.
