Where's the New Normal at Petaling Jaya?

Today marked the last day of May 2020. According to Malaysia's government, the Conditional Movement Control Order will soon be lifted in another 2 weeks. I have seen my friend's post about my favourite restaurant in Petaling Jaya has re-open for dine-in, hence I decided to pay a visit to enjoy some good food.

But, I felt sick with what I seen today. Are we all too comfortable and forgot how to live the new normal?
Let's see, the crowd inside 1 Utama New Wing is really crazy, especially at JD sports, Starbucks, H&M, Baskin Robbins. I don't see social distancing nor sanitiser around the shopping mall. It was really bad and I felt really unsafe.

I was there to collect item that I have reserved since April and today is the last day to collect it hence the visit. I have left the mall as soon as I have done.

The New Normal Way of Shopping @ Mid Valley Megamall

Hi my fellow readers in Malaysia, we have come to the midst of Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in May 2020. Many of us are back to work but it is important for us to adapting the new normal life, i.e. Keep social distancing, wear a mask, wash hands frequently, while fighting the COVID-19 pandemic together.
I have not been to a shopping mall since Malaysia government impose MCO back in March. It has been almost 2 months and all the places I went was the grocery and restaurant. Finally I brave myself to visit my favourite shopping mall in KL – Mid Valley Megamall last Thursday.
I reached there around 1pm, which is the lunch time for normal working people. Surprisingly, there was still empty spots at the P2 ladies car park at The Gardens Mall. I parked my car nicely and went inside the shopping mall without any waiting.

Before entering the upper level, customers were asked to wear a mask, measure the temperature, sanitise and scan the QR code to register ourselves. It was quite smooth as there were 2 counters.

Once went up to the LG level, I started to see people shopping around. The crowd was much more lesser than usual though.
When I go into the shops inside the shopping mall, I need to register, check temperature and sanitise again. I had enjoyed my shopping at Lovisa (they are having sales now!), Berhka, Zara, Watsons, Popular bookstore, Smiggle (they are having 25% off now!) that day. I wanted to go JD sports too but the crowd there was crazy.

AceMD Personal Hygiene Products Keep You And Your Loved Ones Safe

With the worrying Covid-19 pandemic disrupting lives and causing distress around the world, we can only do our part to flatten the curve by staying safe, being vigilant and maintain hygiene as much as possible.

Here’s a quick recap of how much bacteria and germs we are exposed to every day:
• Lift Buttons – 40X the amount of germs than a public toilet!
• Money – one bill contains 135,000 bacteria!
• Mobile Phone – has 25,000 germs per square inch!
• Desktop Computer – has 21,000 germs per square inch!
That’s why one of the most precious items right now is the hand sanitiser. More and more people are beginning to recognize the importance of keeping their hands clean, but the truth is that not all hand sanitisers are made equal.
Designed and formulated in the UK, and made in Korea, AceMD delivers the importance of safe, high-quality personal care, committed to offering the goodness of life by being your daily hygiene expert. Produced by Acelabs Limited, whose brand portfolio also includes Acelabs Skincare, AceMD focuses on personal hygiene, such as anti-bacterial hand sanitizers and wet wipes.

AceMD Mythbusters: What’s True and What’s Not?

MYTH #1: The higher the alcohol concentration (90% and above), the better its disinfectant properties.
TRUTH: Higher concentrations of alcohol don’t necessarily produce desirable results for protection against bacteria, fungi and viruses. In order to be effective, there has to be a significant enough presence of water in the mixture! The best ratio is 30% water + 70% alcohol. That’s why AceMD formulas contain 60-70% alcohol for the best level of protection you can enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Certified Halal And Wudhu-Friendly Ceramide & Rose Water Products for Ramadhan

Selamat Berpuasa to all my Muslim readers. The holy month of Ramadan is here, marking a month of fasting, prayers and reflection for our Muslim friends. Before performing prayers, Muslims must go through the ritual of ablution or wudhu (the process of washing before prayers). For women, it could be challenging finding halal certified beauty products to suit their skin.

My favourite Korean beauty brand Mamonde has taken into account its different customers’ needs and has gone the extra mile to come up with products that use ingredients without any alcohol or animal substances. This Ramadhan, Mamonde recommends its Ceramide and Rose Water ranges that are compliant with the faith. The products from these ranges are certified halal and wudhu-friendly, which means they can be freely used without having to be removed before prayers. They also contain moisturising properties that are ideal for the skin especially during the fasting month when water consumption is restricted.
Moisture Ceramide Range

For the Ceramide range, Mamonde focuses on the Hibiscus Flower as its research has uncovered the flower’s moisturising properties that can offer hydration benefits to the skin. The popular Ceramide range is formulated with moisturising Hibiscus extract along with ceramide, its key ingredient.

The ideal combination of the Hibiscus extract and Ceramide helps to strengthen the skin’s outer barrier by keeping moisture close to the skin. This range is especially suitable for dry and dehydrated skin. Upon application, skin instantly feels fresh and moisturised without having any sticky residue. The products under the Ceramide range that have been given halal certification are Ceramide Skin Softener, Ceramide Emulsion, Ceramide Light Cream and The Ceramide Intense Cream.

Ceramide Skin Softener (200 ml, RM70)

This intensive moisturising toner helps protect the skin’s moisture barrier that has been damaged by external environment factors and provides a boost of hydration to the skin without leaving any sticky residue. It also contains the moisturising agent Betaine extracted from beet to further moisturise the skin. Suitable for those experiencing flaky/sensitive/rough skin. 

Ceramide Emulsion (150 ml, RM80)

“At Subway we are committed to providing delicious, nutritious food choices for all Malaysians. In keeping with this promise, we will donate up to 7,000 Subway meals to those in our community who have been severely affected by the current Covid-19 outbreak and to the frontliners who are fighting the spread of the virus in Malaysia,” Mr Shariff said.

The campaign comes in conjunction with the launch of Subway Malaysia’s refreshed menu with 12 all-new ingredients and flavours that encourage every Malaysian to “rediscover what you love” at Subway but to also play a part in helping our frontliners and those in need.

Soypresso by TONO Soymilk

The weather is too hot these days, let's cool off with a bottle of TONO Soymilk. TONO Soymilk has a rich and creamy texture, with a healthful nutritional profile, including essential omega-3 fatty acids.
In fact, the Soypresso by Tono is a full-flavored, concentrated form of soymilk that taste creamier, thicker, and richer than the traditional ‘Soya’. In the process, the grinded soybean cooked together with the soy pulp (okara) through pressurized hot water. Thus, the soypresso results in a form of higher density than the traditional soya. It preserves the nutrients (protein, soy lecithin, and isoflavones) of our IP Canada Non-GMO soybean, organically.
Soypresso by Tono has 6 flavours to chose from: Plain Soy Milk, Light Sweet Soy Milk, Black Sesame Soy Milk, Yuri Matcha Soy Milk, Choco Soy Milk, Red Bean Soy Milk. There are 2 sizes for the bottled soymilk, small in 380ml and big in 830ml.
I like that the soymilk is sealed for hygiene purpose. Among all flavour, my favourite is the Light Sweet Soy Milk. It is rich and smooth and with a hint of sweet, very satisfying.
