Avocado oil: This nutrient-rich oil helps to hydrate the skin, increase collagen production and keep skin supple.
The luxurious formula keep our lips moisturized and colorful! I like that this lipstick has a depth of pigment that requires only one coat for full opaque coverage. The texture is so velvety with long staying power.

Mr Lew and Elizabeth launching the AmLife World Mental Health Day 2020 campaign

In fact, year 2020 looks grim with the Covid-19 pandemic. Faced with threatening realities of health and life, loss of jobs, lack of social interactions, all these take a toll on everyone’s mental health, as well as adverse physical and emotional repercussions.
According to a survey by The Ministry of Health Malaysia showed that by 2020, mental health conditions are expected to be the second biggest health problem affecting Malaysians after heart diseases. One in three Malaysian adults aged 16 years and above (29.2 percent) have a mental health condition, nearly triple from 11.2 percent in 2006. Amongst Malaysian youth aged 13 to 17, one in five has depression, two in five have anxiety and one in 10 has stress.

On the mental well-being of Malaysian households during MCO (Movement Control Order / Lockdown), the latest health survey conducted by Malaysian think tank The Centre with 1084 respondents in Malaysia indicated:

· 45% of the respondents reported experiencing negative mental well-being during the MCO, with different levels of severity.
· 22% reported experiencing severe and extremely severe anxiety, with 20% and 15% of the respondents reporting severe and extremely severe depression and stress respectively.
· Women and those below the age of 35, reported experiencing higher levels of negative emotions. 18-26% of women stated that they experienced severe and extremely severe depression, anxiety, and stress.

Abroad, according to the International Association for Suicide Prevention, USA (IASP), one billion people across the world are thought to have a mental or substance use disorder and anyone, anywhere, can be affected. Depression alone is on track to be the leading disease burden in the next 10 years.
Mr. Lew Mun Yee, Founder & President of AmLife said good quality sleep improves our psychological and mental health and vice versa. Physiological health and psychological issues are escalating globally. One in five persons has a type of mental health issue. Therefore AmLife stresses sleep education which is part of our business philosophy,” explained Lew.

Primera™ Red Rice - Healthy and Tasty Rice

We Malaysian love to eat rice, we eat rice in the morning, noon and night. In fact, rice is a staple food product that is synonymous with Malaysian culture. To date, the most commonly consumed rice in Malaysia and globally is white rice. According to a report by Khazanah Research Institute (KRI),[1] Malaysians had consumed an average of 80 kg of rice, per person, in 2016. Although carbohydrates are essential for the body as they provide us with energy, excess consumption of white rice, which is the major source of carbohydrates may lead to health issues because of its high glycaemic index (GI) value. White rice's bran and germ which store abundant nutrients are also removed during the milling hence it's not very healthy.
Fret not, rice sceptics can now have a different view of rice as Nomatech Sdn. Bhd., a Malaysia home-grown company has produced a low glycaemic index (GI) superior red rice; Primera™ which is also high in fibre and rich in antioxidant.
I was honored to be invited to the intimate launch event of Primera™ Red Rice held at De.Wan 1958 By Chef Wan, The LINC KL not long ago. Attended by multiple award-winning chef and culinary ambassador for Tourism Malaysia, Datuk (DR) Redzuawan Ismail or better known as Chef Wan who demonstrated his culinary prowess with an interesting presentation of 3 sumptuous dishes using Primera™ Rice.
We have tasted the 3 dishes prepared, they were Nasi Berlauk, Bubur Aneka and Nasi Ulam. We were amazed with the delicious and healthy dishes cooked with Primera™ Red Rice.
