That's why I love to go for hair treatment but it cost a bomb to my wallet, hence I am always invest in a good home care to take care my hair from getting worsen.
I was introduced to Marini NaturaleMagic brand by a friend recently. When searching for more information on the brand, I found that MariniNaturale Magic has natural products that proudly made in Malaysia. The price is very reasonable hence I thought why not give it a try.

Betadine® Daily Feminine Wash Turns Pink in October

October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sadly, breast cancer is a taboo subject that we prefer not to address or talk about openly for many of us.  Do you know that in Malaysia, about one out of five females has been reported with breast cancer and it is the most common cancer from 2007-20111. However, in this day and age, positive changes are making their presence felt in our community. Since the introduction of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the topic of cancer is something that we have learnt not to shy away from.
This year, Betadine® Feminine Wash is supporting the National Caancer Council Malaysia (MAKNA) to #breakthesilence and help more Malaysian women become more aware of cancer prevention. One of the ways to prevent the onset of cancer is to look after your health, as early prevention saves lives. Every single effort, no matter how small, can make a huge difference. 
Staying healthy isn’t just about what you eat and how you live; it’s also about making sure your personal hygiene stays in tiptop shape.

The vagina is home to healthy bacteria known as Lactobacillus. These beneficial organisms are essential for the protection of our intimate area’s micro-environment. Under healthy conditions, this good bacteria in the intimate area environment can help to maintain an optimal pH balance, while preventing unfriendly organisms from thriving. 

In order for the beneficial microorganism to have a healthy population level, prebiotics or good germs play an important role. Most people know that prebiotics are good for the digestive system, but in fact, they can also be beneficial to other parts of our bodies, such as the intimate area.

From Journals, diary, notebook, planners, files, clip board, listpad and many more. You can even buy mugs and tumber from Sassy, isn't it cool?

It was nicely wrapped hence the items inside was in good condition. At first glance, I love their classy and bold but not too fancy designs. Their products are priced at fair price, Sassy is indeed a great stationery Malaysia for all of us.

Australian International School Recognised as First Visible Learning School in the World

As a parents of two, I emphasize a lot on my kids' educational journey. Education begins in early years, we as a parents should let our child explore, extend and excel in their academy. In fact, Education today is no longer about the consumption of knowledge. Schools today are preparing their students for challenges in real life and imparting skills that they would use in a highly competitive 21st century. With that, the role of a teacher in moulding citizens of the future is an ever important one and the learning approach in schools needs to change to reflect the needs of the future.
The Australian International School Malaysia, a part of Taylor’s Schools, knows how the delivery of an international curriculum is and has invested in equipping its teachers and students with a new teaching and learning method called the Visible Learning approach alongside the Australian curriculum. The school which has offered an Australian education in Malaysia for the past 17 years, held a launch ceremony on Thursday, 12 October 2017 to announce that it is the first Certified Visible Learning School in the world. This is testimony to its commitment to deliver outstanding teaching and learning practices at its beautiful campus in Seri Kembangan.
We were honoured to be invited to witness this memorable moment at the launch event. We have saw a lot of great performances by the talented students from AISM before the event began.
“The number one thing that differentiates an impactful teacher from others is their passion about children’s learning; a teacher who has taken time and effort to build up trust between themselves and the student. We are working hard to ensure this in our schools,” says BK Gan, President of Taylors Schools.

The product is farmed from best sourced of New Zealand deer.

Cost of Living – is it a Needs or Wants?

Have you ever calculated your cost of living? In this modern World, there are so many things we can buy from the shopping malls and even from home online. Do you always buy what you want and is all of them what you need?

For me, I would always ensure I buy something essential that I need, and I control myself when I see something nice to have but I don't really need. Simple because, wants may change over time, I might be regret the next day for spending something that I don't need.
Let me share with you some examples;

I need a pair of nice pants for working purposes.

I don't really need a nice dress for the latest fashion. I might probably wear it once or not even wearing it.

See, that's how I differentiates wants and needs. Sadly, I have many friends that shop because they see something nice. Over time, they have many debts from their credit cards, loans and it has eventually affected their financial status.
Thanks to KPDNKK, we can now check the latest price for essential items from their website and their app to become a smart consumer. For instance, KPDNKK has just announced the 16 controlled items for the coming Deepavali festival. From there, we consumer would know the price of the essential items for the festive.

With the habit of asking ourselves if something is a need or a want, we would eventually learn to set the spending priorities and save the money for things we really need.

Traditional Remedies for Kidney Stone

I have a lot of friends and relatives suffering from kidney stone. It is so painful and sometimes even need to go for a surgery to take out the kidney stone. For mild case like me, I would suffer from mild pain and sometimes pain on urination. But, I am glad that there is a traditional remedies for kidney stone removal which I have tried recently. The GlamoHealth juice that is made from traditional village formula.
GlamoHealth juice contains a lot of ingredients to benefit us from kidney stone, including lemon, beetroot, leafflower, basil, honey, celery leaves, pomegranate, soursop leaves, and snake grass leaves. As you can see, these botanical ingredients are good to the body. In fact, it does not only helps in kidney stones, it also helps for heart disease.
GlamoHealth juice comes in a plastic bottle packed in paper box. The bottle cap is sealed securely before open. It comes with a small measurement plastic cup too which is useful and made consumption easier.
The juice is quite concentrated. Most importantly, it taste good, not too sweet but soury sweet which I really like. I normally drink 30 ml of it on every meal. I also make sure I drink enough of water (at least 8 glasses) every day to help ease the passage. After drinking GlamoHealth juice for 2 days, I noticed that my urination is smoother and not as painful as previously anymore. I do not have any pain nor discomfort after consuming it. In fact, the best result could be seen after consuming it for one to two weeks.
