A Malaysian transformative education approach for Youth in the 21st Century

As a parent of 2 lovely girls, I strongly believe that we need to keep up and adapt to the environment. A fundamental change that is needed urgently is our education system. It should be ever-evolving to ensure that our children are prepared for the local and international work place. I think it's time to leave behind the traditional classroom mindset that we are all familiar with, and adapt new ways to engage students and raise creative and innovative children!
Thanks to a lovely invitation, I recently attended a press conference that unveiled the insights of the ‘Education in the 21st Century – Our Impact’ (‘Impact Study’) at LeapEd Services Sdn Bhd (‘LeapEd’). A brief background on LeapEd, it was established as a social enterprise in 2010 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad. They are also Malaysia’s first homegrown education service provider!
Their objective is to enrich lives through capacity-building and education transformation and have impacted over 71,000 students and in over 160 schools through its various intervention models such as the District Transformation Programme-AMAN (‘DTP-AMAN’), Islamic School Enhancement Programme (‘ISEP’), Ground-up School Transformation (‘GUSTO’) Programme, Program Sekolah Transformasi (‘PreSTasi’) as well as the nation’s first Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0) to date. In fact, it was my first time hearing about Trust Schools Programme and I found it to be an interesting approach to education! TSP 1.0 is LeapEd’s flagship programme designed to develop holistic students with 21st century capabilities.
In collaboration with Yayasan AMIR and the Ministry of Education, the programme is a customisable model to ensure its sustainability in Malaysian schools. Since its roll-out in 2011, TSP 1.0 has impacted over 5,300 parents and 65,000 students in 83 schools across 12 states in Malaysia.

How to Look More Youthful with Faster Cell Renewal

Many of us know that skin is the largest organ of the human body. Do you know that the skin is an organ that is continuously self-renewing? Skin is made up of cells that naturally regenerate in 28-day cycles. This natural skin-shedding process removes dead cells and replaces them with 'new' cells.
With age, the cycle gets longer and cells have depleted moisture and essential trace element levels. Over time, cell renewal could be 7 times slower! Ageing signs imprint on skin day by day and result in dullness, deeper lines and wrinkles, as well as uneven texture and skin-tone.
Knowing that faster cell renewal leads to more youthful-looking skin, Murad has reinvents Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel to accelerates cell renewal by 33% in 7 days.
Launched in July 2019, Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel is packed with Dr. Murad's newest formula. The ingredients consists of Phase 1: AHA, BHA, and TXA helps create smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin. Phase 2: Adaptogenic holy basil (antioxidants) and omega-rich oils defend and strengthen skins surface for a vibrant complexion.Clinical Results: In a 4-week study: - 96% saw smoother texture- 88% saw more radiant skin- 84% noticed brighter skin and more even tone . Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel is free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances. This product is also cruelty-free and gluten-free. This gentle, yet potent, daily bi-phase peel rejuvenates the look of skin for a vibrant glow.

Attention Women! Do You Know How Iron Strong Are You?

This post is dedicated to all women, so, women (and guys who are care for their loved ones) please read on. Ever wonder why women had brittle nails, cold hands and feet, are constantly tired, weak or pale; experienced chest pains, fast heartbeat and shortness of breath or have constant bouts of headaches and dizzy spells? If you’ve said yes to one of more of these symptoms, you may just be iron deficient.
Official launch of FERROVIT and FENZA!

Well, you’re certainly not alone! As we know, women’s nutritional needs change during menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause. A woman’s reproductive life means that her nutritional needs differ greatly from those of a man. While Iron is an essential mineral required to deliver oxygen to all cells of the body. Men need about 10 micrograms a day, menstruating women need about 14 micrograms a day. The iron needs of older women revert to those of men.
Take charge of your ‘iron’ health today!

Speaking at the brand’s official launch in collaboration with Watsons, Stephanie Ko, AHC Marketing Manager, Southeast Asia & Australia shares the Korean secret to glass skin: Koreans believe in perfecting the skin before applying any makeup for dewy, soft ‘Chok Chok’ skin – where hydration is key to resolve and prevent major skin concerns, including anti-ageing, dull and atopic skin.

Getting Your "Couch Kid" to be Active

I remember I have read an article about child obesity issue in Malaysia. In this technology era, many kids will choose to sit on the couch and watch TV programme or play phone /ipad /computer all day. Sadly, many parents just let their kids to do so because this is the simplest way to keep the kids occupied. Unfortunately, the issue of couch potato children isn’t an isolated problem, we are noticing if only our household. In fact, as a nation we are noticing a rise in child obesity and inactivity. In the long run, it will affect the kids' health and grow.

To put this into perspective, parents should indeed engage their kids in physical activity regularly. I believe parents play the most important role in this and I am sharing some tips below that works for my girls.
1. Get crafty

Arts and crafts offer our kids the perfect opportunity to get off the couch. My girls love to do arts and crafts with me. We spent hours to complete the artwork and we will display our beautiful art work in the house. This way, they get excited whenever they see their pretty piece of art, and can't wait to create more and more art pieces to showcase to our visitors.

2. Play

It sounds simple, but encourage children to play might be tricky sometimes. Every kid has different kind of interest and hence we should engage them into the play that they love. We are fortunate to bring our kids to KidZania Kuala Lumpur, an indoor family themed learning centre that offers interactive learning and role play experiences for kids. From there, they learn how to communicate, have fun and appreciate team work while playing. My girls have been there for numerous times and they are still looking forward to visit it. After playing a whole day there, they easily get tired and fell asleep easily at night.

Raw Talent ROARS

Tiger Beer has long been a champion for unconventional talent, courage and passion – inspiring Malaysians to ‘Uncage’ themselves and create unexpected possibilities. Now, Malaysia’s No. 1 Beer1, is taking this to the next level with its new platform, the Tiger ROAR Project. Celebrating raw, emerging talent from the streets of Malaysia, the Tiger ROAR Project champions musicians, artists, fashion designers and chefs who challenge conventions, giving them a community, voice, and the courage to roar for all the world to hear.

Four unique talents have been selected by Tiger Beer to helm the Tiger ROAR Project this year – hip-hop artist and rapper Dato’ Maw, musician and chef Kent Lee, fashion designer Yong Sheng, and pyrographer and artist Sonia Luhong. Chosen for their unconventional approach to their work, all four have faced challenges which they’ve had to overcome in order to pursue their passion.
Dato’ Maw has made it his life’s mission to put Malaysian Chinese hip-hop on the map – not an easy feat in a market dominated by the musical powerhouses of China and Taiwan. Taking inspiration from the back alleys of his native Penang to his time as resident club MC in Taiwan, Maw’s multi-lingual hip-hop fuses Cantonese, Hakka, Hokkien, English and Bahasa Malaysia together to create something uniquely Malaysian in character.

How to Achieve Good Skin Overnight - Murad Night Fix Enzyme Treatment

A good night’s rest has never been more important to achieve good skin overnight. The eight hours of sleep is crucial for our well-being but skin can reap some overnight skincare benefits, too. I always spend time to put on my night skin care regimen with a bevy of treatments to get gorgeous skin while my body rest.
This year, my favourite skincare brand - Murad has launched their Prebiotic Series that is formulated with prebiotic hydrating sugars that literally help feed skin's good bacteria. One of they key product is Murad Night Fix Enzyme Treatment.
Understanding the importance of sleep and its effect on the skin, Murad raises the bar with Night Fix Enzyme Treatment that encourages the skin to repair itself overnight. As the recent study also found that the skin loses water three times faster at night, Murad incorporated ingredients that can help skin retain water, prevent overnight skin dehydration, while supporting natural repair. As a result, you will notice visibly minimized fine lines, a generous boost of hydration and more radiant looking complexion.
This outstanding innovation consists of ingredients that act as an enhancement and customization to your current regimen (Murad’s traditional 3-step process). The chronopeptide treatment found in the formula, syncs up with the body’s circadian rhythm to support natural repair and lends vibrancy to your skin. While the tri-enzyme formula is made of purified red and green microalgae, forming three encapsulated enzymes that provide potent antioxidant protection and detoxification to reduce visible signs of premature aging such as loss of elasticity, lines and wrinkles.

Sharp Face and Glowing Skin is No Longer a Dream for Me

I always admire women with sharp facial features and glowing skin ever since I was a kid. I wish to age gracefully just like my celebrities idols like Maggie Cheung and Cherie Chung Chor-hung. Therefore, I have started to really take care of my skin ever since I began my beauty journey 10 years ago.

However, I started to notice the fine lines appearing on my face after I stepped into my 30s. I was trying hard to fight the ageing by learning the latest technology, investing in beauty products with advance skincare formulas, and engage in the beauty blogger industry to see if anything can help preserve the youth of my skin. Thus, I have always take good care of my skin by applying expensive creams, followed multiple steps (sometimes up to 8 steps) but I still can't prevent my skin from sagging and wrinkles from appearing.

So early this year, I decided to try out the aesthetic treatments. I have spent half a day at the clinic for Ultherapy, Belotero fillers and Pure Toxin treatments. After 3 months now, I noticed that the result is truly amazing. Not only my cheek is plump, I look more youthful with firmer eyes and perfect jawline. I am happy with my sharper face features and glowing skin now.
I am a happy girl now!

Now, I spend less time for makeup as all I need is just some foundation and blusher and then I am good to go. Sometimes I even go out with bare face. I feel thankful because I can spend more time with my loved ones now instead of sitting in front of the vanity table trying hard to fix all my flaws.

Ultherapy, Belotero filler and Pure Toxin treatments have enhanced my confidence and I feel good and young once again. I can take a close-up selfie without worrying about my skin condition because my skin is now clear, soft and firm.

New! Eucerin® UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS Skincare Range

A radiant and even-toned complexion is every woman’s dream and Eucerin now offers a safe, gentle and effective solution that diminishes dark spots in only 4 weeks! Eucerin® UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS is a breakthrough skincare range with the active agent Thiamidol™ that came from rigorous testing as well as intensive research and development at the Eucerin Skin Science Lab.
Dark spots are caused by the overproduction of melanin, which is commonly triggered by sun exposure, aging and hormonal changes among others. In the past, the most effective solution for removal of dark spots have been chemical peels or laser treatments. Now, Eucerin UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS offers a gentler approach that is just as effective but with long term benefits.
“For over 100 years, Eucerin has built a strong reputation for providing safe and effective skincare solutions. Today, we are proud to introduce Eucerin® UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS, a range that has taken us over 10 years to develop. This breakthrough formula contains our patented active ingredient, Thiamidol™ which is proven to be the most effective out of 50,0000 compounds tested in the Eucerin Skin Science Lab, successfully diminishing dark spots in 4 weeks while remaining gentle on the skin,” said Ng Hock Guan, Country Manager of Beiersdorf Malaysia.

* Thiamidol™ is tested and proven to be 10x more powerful than B-resorcinol

To demonstrate the efficacy of the active ingredient, Thiamidol™, two pairs of twins, Avril and Cathrine Koh and Felicia and Fyrone Lee, were selected to put Eucerin® UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS to the test. From each pair, Avril and Felicia were selected to use Eucerin® UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS while Cathrine and Fyrone underwent laser treatment.
At the end of the 4 weeks, both women who used Eucerin® UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS reported significant improvements, with dark spots dramatically reduced and fairer, more glowing skin.

Surrounded by colourful and vibrant fairy lights lighting up the Main Atrium, beach houses, coconut trees, visualistic sea view and Didi die-cut boards are some of the sights not to be missed at our Raya decoration. There are beach themed carpeted areas at the Main Atrium for family and youngsters to Buka Puasa and have a ‘santai’ session (chill out session) by the beach with colourful bean bags. An open concept as well as freedom for youngsters to gather around and socialise among each other whilst being surrounded by latest fashion collections in town.
