TOP Embraces The New Norm To Help Orang Asli Children Return To School Safe & Protected In This Year’s ‘A Brighter Future with TOP’ Campaign

 Continues Collaboration with TESCO and Jabatan Kemajuan Orang Asli (JAKOA)

Kuala Lumpur, December 22, 2020 – With the spike in COVID-19 cases in Malaysia and the move to online learning, children are hankering to get back to school in 2021. However, Covid-19 has impacted the national economy especially among Orang Asli populations putting the back-to-school plans for these children in jeopardy.

 

Orang Asli students from the isolated SK Terisu find joy in being together.

TOP, the Putra Brand Award 2019 Platinum winner for the household product category[1], returns with the ‘Brighter Future with TOP’ charity fund-raising campaign with the goal of equipping 364 Orang Asli students in Pahang, Perak and Johor with back-to-school essentials for the 2021 school year.

 

To reduce the risk of these children contracting COVID-19, TOP will be contributing two reusable cloth face masks, in addition to the back-to-school essentials of new uniforms, shoes, socks, school bags, stationery sets, colour pencils and exercise books for each child. The contribution serves to motivate the children to attend school, while easing their parents’ financial burden and giving parents peace of mind that their children are protected against the pandemic. 

 

Over the past five years, the campaign has benefited approximately 2,500 children aged between 7 to 17 years from 79 communities in need including Orang Asli and NGOs serving orphans, and children from single parent households.



Students from SK. Pos Dipang, Perak enjoy a game of ‘bowling kelapa’


 

Working with JAKOA, TOP shortlisted schools with full Orang Asli enrolment from areas that have seen significant reduction in income among families due to the pandemic, while celebrating the diversity, achievement and perseverance of these communities.  The three Orang Asli primary schools receiving back-to-school essentials are SK Kampung Kudong a high-achieving Orang Asli school in a forest reserve in Bekok Johor, SK Pos Dipang in Jeram, Perak that has shown exceptional spirit in rebuilding from landslides, floods and other tragedies, and the isolated SK Terisu, in Cameron Highlands, Pahang where incomes have plummeted.  

 

Funds will be raised via the contribution of RM0.30 from the sales of TOP detergent products from all TESCO stores, and TESCO Online from 1st December to 31st December 2020. JAKOA will deliver these back-to-school essential to the Orang Asli communities by the 15th of January 2021, ahead of the new school term.

 

 Ideal for washing items such as cloth face masks and school uniforms, kills 99.9% of germs and removes sweaty odours

Developed by Lion Corporation, Japan, TOP is known for championing the concept of hygienically clean living to encourage cleaner laundry, more comfort and a better sense of well-being through its continuous breakthrough innovations. It is famed for its Micro-Clean Tech with Anti-Sebum technology that effectively removes visible and invisible stains. 

“Orang Asli populations are among the hardest hit economically by COVID-19. In cooperation with JAKOA, we identified the addition of reusable cloth face masks as a way to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by protecting the children while reducing the economic burden on families.”

TOP added reusable three-ply cloth face masks with built-in filters in children’s sizes as they are proven to reduce the spread of Covid-19 when used correctly, are more sustainable, and economical compared to disposal surgical masks.  To close the sustainability loop, TOP will be contributing its TOP Super Hygienic detergent to each Orang Asli family to equip them with a high-performance detergent to hygienically and thoroughly clean their laundry including school uniforms and cloth face masks.

“TOP Super Hygienic Powder detergent and TOP Odour Buster Liquid Detergent are especially suitable during the pandemic as the antibacterial formulation kills 99.9% of bacteria for maximum protection and has high performance anti-sweat odour to deactivate musty smells, deodorize fabric and eliminate trapped sebum. This campaign has resonated with TOP consumers over the past five years. We hope that they will continue to support A Brighter Future with TOP this year, as the need is greater than ever,” says Southern Lion Sdn Bhd, Marketing Manager (Fabric Care Division) Ms Ling Ai Li.

From December 1st to December 31st, 2020


The campaign is in line with the Malaysian Education Blueprint (MEB) 2013-2025[2], that emphasises improving outcomes for Orang Asli students through public private partnership that extends to parents and communities to help transform the education system, and is especially  timely as the COVID-19 third wave sees cases spiking.

 

“The pandemic is straining Orang Asli communities almost to breaking point. Some families fear for their children health as they simply cannot afford masks, yet they do not want their kids to be left behind academically. Online learning is not possible in these communities as often there is no internet connectivity, and no devices at home. Instead teachers send worksheets directly to students’ homes. The Orang Asli communities and JAKOA are grateful to all Malaysians for their support of the Brighter Future with TOP back-to-school campaign, and for the addition of reusable cloth face masks that will make a vital difference providing protection for children, peace-of-mind and easing economic burden on parents,” JAKOA Director General, Prof Juli Edo says.

 

During the campaign period from 1st to 31st December 2020, TOP detergent products will be selling at special prices at all TESCO outlets and TESCO online.

 This year has been extraordinary. We have been Ke Sana Ke Sini before we became a married couple, but 2020 is much more a Stay At Home year. Not just for us, but for the whole world.

My Youngest Pondering What to Get from PG Mall

PG Mall www.pgmall.my is Malaysia's No.1 E-commerce platform, established since 2017. Do you know that PG Mall is also the only Local e-commerce platform in Malaysia? Given how the pandemic has affected our economy, supporting the Malaysian local will definitely help the nation through this challenging period.

Oriental Ceramics sells high quality Claytan tableware including teapot, tea cup, saucer, plate, bowl and spoon. They have underglaze decoration without containing lead. I am absolutely in love with the floral design which is great to go with British style high tea. Besides that, their products are also safe for freezer, dishwasher and are microwaveable.

Forever Dewi | https://pgmall.my/FOREVER-DEWI



Sambal Ikan Bilis is something most Malaysians cannot live without, me included. I love how crunchy and fresh this can of Sambal Ikan Bilis is. This is a heavenly combination with Satay, lempeng, boiled sweet potatoes, fried rice, Nasi Lemak and fried noodles. Premium anchovy is used in Forever Dewi's Sambal Ikan Bilis which is rich in selenium, fat soluble vitamins, calcium, protein and polyunsaturated fatty acids-- great for the health conscious.

D Baby Care | https://pgmall.my/D-Baby-Care-1


I have just purchased Joielle travel set for our cuti-cuti Malaysia plans in 2021. It consists of baby bath, shampoo, head-to-toe cleanser, lotion, cream and oil. Everything I need for my 2 active boys who also have sensitive skin prone to eczema and irritant dermatitis. Joielle products does not contain harsh chemicals like SLS, paraben and alcohol. They are also dermatologically test and great for sensitive skin.

Plus, learning to wait your turn and follow the rules also instill discipline.

Sun Protection for Everyone | Aeon Wellness Anessa Sunscreens Review

 Everyone needs sun protection. This is not just about preventing premature skin aging but more importantly, skin cancer. Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of age, gender or race. An estimated 20% Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. So remember to apply sunscreen before heading out during the day.


There are two main types of sunscreens--namely chemical and physical sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens functions like a sponge, absorbing harmful ultraviolet rays. Look for the following active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate. These tend to be easier to apply without leaving a white residue. Physical sunscreens are like shields, deflecting the sun’s rays. The buzz words are zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. Physical sunscreens are more suitable for those who have sensitive skin.

We should protect ourselves against the sun all the time as even on cloudy days, about 80 percent of harmful UV rays can penetrate the skin. Whenever one is surrounded by reflective environment such as snow, sand, and water, sunscreen becomes even more essential. Read more about sunscreen at AAD.

Are you applying your sun lotion correctly? Here I summarise the tips from Anessa website.


1: Shake well before using
2: Apply a 2cm diameter amount of sunscreen, on five spots of the face (cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin) evenly
3: 2 layers on the face
4 :Apply a 2.4cm diameter around the neck in small dots, smoothing it upward
5: For the arms or legs, apply directly from the container to the skin in lines and rub gently in a big circular motion
6: Reapply after wiping off the sweat or after swimming for long hours.
7: Reapply every 2-3 hours.
8: Makeup user dab excessive sebum with tissue then use sunscreen spray, top with powder.

Anessa is a premium physical sunscreen brand under Shiseido marketed by AEON Wellness. Not only does it provide sun protection, but it also contains 50% of skin loving ingredients with no artificial coloring and is dermatologist tested to be hypoallergenic. They produce 2 types of sunscreen gels great for me who has oily skin as it is light weight with SPF50+・PA++++ suitable for both the face and body The key ingredients are:

Yellow flower extract (Rosaceae/Tormentilla)
Licorice-- potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial effects
Collagen-- maintain skin elasticity and suppleness
Green tea leaf extract (Produced in Uji, Kyoto)-- strong antioxidant and anti ageing ingredient
Edelweiss extract-- absorbs UV and anti-ageing
Aqua-in-Pool-- patented ingredient to boost skin hydration and reinforce the skin's barrier function

Anessa Perfect UV Skincare Gel



It adheres to the skin perfectly, acting as a shield against UV protection even with heat, sweat or water! Besides that, the skincare gel can also be used as makeup primer with the rejuvenating fragrance of citrus soap without leaving white residues.

Anessa Perfect UV Skincare Gel also features Aqua Booster Technology which strengthens UV protection when exposed to sweat or water, proven by an 80-minute bathing test. Its unique powder ingredient prevents the veil from coming off easily with rubbing and making it sand resistant. However it remains easily removable with soap.

Anessa Whitening UV Gel AA Quasi-drug


Besides acting as sunscreen, this waterproof UV gel also contains effective whitening agent m-tranexamic acid* and skin smoothening agent glycyrrhizic acid salt. Other functions include moisturizing effect and makeup primer. The skin appears lucent straight after application with a dewy look.

Where to get these awesome products?

How to make skincare products work? | CHEMIFREE skincare range review

 Have you ever wonder why your expensive skincare products are not working?



Maybe you have been using them wrong!


How you use your skin care products affect the results-- no rocket science here. Listen up to some advice from your friendly Dr Yingzangel here. This is my version of 9S for Skin!


1. Scrutinize the product before applying it to your face or hands. Even hypoallergenic products can cause  reaction. Apply a quarter of a finger tip unit onto  the inner forearm. Repeat this twice a day for four to five days-- then only use it if you have no reactions.


2. Start with one product especially if your skin is sensitive. Skin can become irritated and inflamed, making them flaky, dehydrated and pores clogged.


3. Stop if your skin tells you so. If it stings, burns, tightens or tingles, your skin is irritated but this can be an expected reaction for certain prescribed drugs. Always consult your friendly doctor if this happens.


4. Stick to the directions. If applied more than directed, the product can cause clogged pores, blotchy skin, or excessively dry skin due to excessive active ingredients.


5. Sit on it. Give the product time to work-- this means at least 6 weeks up to 3 months.


6. Stay on it. Once result is seen, continue using for lasting effects.


7. Sun protection is a must to prevent premature aging and risk for getting skin cancer. 


8. Salve using moisturizer to maintain suppleness, radiant complexion and minimise wrinkling.


9. Say no to tanning which makes the skin age faster.


To read more about skin care tips, get on to AAD

https://www.aad.org/public



CHEMIFREE skincare range is proudly Malaysian owned, established since 2012. Chemifree aka chemical free uses only natural ingredients. There are no harsh additives like mineral oil, alcohol, paraben, colouring, animal ingredients, artificial fragrance or synthethic ingredients.

Step 1

These are ingredients used for centuries, with the ability to cleanse the pores in-depth without over drying or stripping away natural moisture. It also helps to maintain the balance of sebum and moisture on the skin to eliminate excessive oil and dirt causing acne. 



Step 2


CHEMIFREE HYDRA-MOISTURIZING TONER prepares the skin and removes makeup traces not visibly removed by the cleanser. Wipe your face gently using cotton pads wet by the toner. Do you know that toning is an essential step to maintain skin radiance and suppleness?


Step 3


Essence or serum are made of active ingredient concentrates. They are lightweight and further conditions the skin to receive nourishment from the skincare products. If you are really busy, you are allowed to skip this step but it is highly recommended if you can spare 5 minutes at least 2-3 times a week for this step.



CHEMIFREE CONCENTRATE WHITE ESSENCE brightens and evens out the skin tone, pigmentation and acne scar. The plant extracts also strengthen the skin’s barrier against sun damage and premature aging. All you need is a few drops and massage in an upward circular motion twice a day.

Apply 2-3drops twice daily on affected areas only.

 

Step 4


CHEMFREE ECZECARE MOISTURIZING CREAM



Always moisturize the skin! This cream is easily absorbed, soothes dry itchy and irritated skin. Untreated eczema can cause the skin to scar and becomes pigmented. The ingredients in the cream include Boerhavia Diffusa root extract, Grapefruit peel oil , Honey extract, Coconut oil, olive fruit and shea butter extracts


What does Dr Yingzangel think?


Itchy eczematous skin is so common, especially for the older adults as our skin lose elasticity and moisture. It is always a good idea to use quality skincare products like Chemifree to support the skin’s protective function. Healthy skin also reflects a healthy body and prevents infections.

Boosting Milk Supply for my toddler | English Tea Shop Mama Me and Ruaah Lactation Cookies Review

 

Now that I am working away from my family, it becomes a real challenge to adapt to the learning curve and home sickness. My youngest is almost 2 but he still enjoys taking breastmilk. It is difficult to maintain my pumping yield with him more than 200km away. I need to be really disciplined to continue providing him with the best nutrition.

The following tips are very important to maintain milk supply:
1. Deter stress. Stress is the No. 1 killer of breastmilk supply, especially in the neonatal period due to rising level of cortisol.
2. Consume enough calories with healthy food choices as breastfeeding burns about 500 calories a day.
3. Drink enough water- one of the easiest way is by placing a bottle in the diaper bag. Drink a glass after each nursing session.
English Tea Shop Mama Me

Sometimes drinking water gets a bit boring so I love to enjoy a hot cup of tea. However caffeine in the tea can be a bad idea as it is a diuretic which can dehydrate the body. Young babies can be sensitive to caffeine as well as they cannot break it down fast enough, leading to wide-eyed babies (not something mommies would want to go through!). Limit caffeine intake to 300 mg per day to avoid this.
English Tea Shop Mama Me is the perfect tea choice for breastfeeding mothers as it is caffeine-free tea hailed from Sri Lanka. I love its rich and balanced fruity flavour which is great to wind down before sleep. Each pack contains 20 sachet tea bags. Infuse a tea bag in a glass of boiled hot water for 3-5minutes then it's good to go! I don't add sugar to my tea as these are 'empty calories'.
As fans of Mother Nature, the English Tea Shop tea bags, boxes and outer packaging are fully compostable. The tea bags are staple free and sachets are recyclable.
The ingredients are
Organic cinnamon (39%)
Organic chamomile (19%): stress relieving properties
Organic fennel (13%): anti-depression, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and galactagogue effect (tryptophan and phytoestrogens)
Organic beetroot (12%): an excellent source of iron, folate and manganese
Organic orange peels (7%): rich in fiber, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, calcium,polyphenols and limonene-- strengthens the immunity.
Organic nettle (6%): rich in calcium, iron and magnesium, relieves constipation, bloating and IBS, as well as increase pumping yield.
Organic blackcurrant (2%) and organic blueberries (2%): rich in antioxidants and vitamins
English Tea Shop Mama Me can be purchased on Shopee.

A great complement to my afternoon tea is none other than RUUAH Lactation Cookies. These delicious cookies are power packed with lactogenic ingredients, aka milk boosters. Proudly made in Malaysia, the lactation cookies also improve the quality of breastmilk. I often share them with my boys as they are crispy and rich in flavour.
The cookies are made of mostly organic ingredients such as :
Oats:  Tryptophan, Polysaccharides, and Saponins promote satiety and uplift mood.
Flax Seeds:  Contains phytoestrogens and essential fatty acids to boost the amount and quality of breast milk.
Dates: has tryptophan and nourishes the body post-birth
Brewer’s Yeast: rich in B vitamins, iron, protein, chromium and selenium
Chia Seeds:  high in fibre, protein, calcium and magnesium
Virgin Coconut Oil: Has Lauric Acid and Capric Acid
Fennel Seeds
I got my RUUAH Lactation Cookies from https://ruuah.com/
What does Dr Yingzangel think? 
Despite practising the above, milk supply inevitably plummages at times.
What did I do to pick up the yield again?
Extra pumping sessions and empty the breasts after baby feeds (up to 2 hourly initially) following the demand and supply concept. 
Double pumping when baby is napping after 20minutes of rest with hydration for 24 to 48 hours.
Most importantly, enjoy the process! Before you know it, the baby will grow up and out of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is a natural and beautiful way to connect with our babies, such precious experience that I would not trade it for any other thing.

Teeth Whitening Whitekish Review



 


Everyone wishes to have a mouthful of white teeth and fresh breath to show off when we have a good laugh. It makes us feel more confident. However not everyone is born with white teeth as some teeth can be naturally yellowish in colour. Certain practices such as the beverage we drink (too much wine, coffee and tea can stain the teeth yellow), poor dental hygiene and smoking (nicotine can stain the teeth and fingers!) can stain the teeth. Teeth also gets stained over the years as we age.





How do we maintain that white teeth?




Make sure we have good dental care by brushing with fluoridated toothpaste at least twice a day, and flossing daily to remove food residues to avoid plaque buildup. I would like to bust a myth here-- brushing straight after food is NOT the way to go. Wait at least 30minutes especially after acidic food or drinks as brushing with acid can remove the enamel, hence damaging the teeth and make them appear more yellowish. Including food such as apples, pears, celery, carrots, cauliflower and cucumbers  into the diet to clean the teeth and eliminate bacterial load in the mouth. Taking your favourite beverage using a straw may also help.





If these are not enough, there are 3 main ways to whiten your teeth, namely home whitening treatment, professional teeth whitening and laser whitening. Treatment options in the dental clinic may include scaling/professional cleaning, bleaching and veneers/bonding for damaged teeth.


Teeth stains can be divided into extrinsic (attached to the enamel), intrinsic (stained dentine which is underneath the enamel), ageing (causing thinner enamel and darker dentine due to wear and tear). So you can imagine most home treatment options will only work for extrinsic stains. Options include whitening toothpaste, pen, gel and strip which commonly contain peroxide, when used may cause teeth sensitivity, sore throat and gum discomfort that is usually self limiting. 




Recent trend on social media boasts charcoal teeth whitening with people brushing their teeth using activated charcoal to regain that white teeth. Activated charcoal is usually derived from coconut shells, bone char, peat, petroleum coke, and coal. It’s created by heating up charcoal using a gas that creates large pores in the mineral which trap chemicals for medicinal use. Activated charcoal is odourless and tasteless but black. The pores bind to the rough parts on the teeth, particularly the food particles, plaque and stains, with the help of gentle brushing, remove extrinsic stains.




But be careful, not every charcoal whitening method is safe and effective. Certain activated charcoal is simply too abrasive and can erode the enamel, causing dentine to be exposed, teeth sensitivity and irreversible damage to the teeth. Avoid charcoal whitening if there is a wound, cut or abrasion in the mouth due to the abrasiveness. Certain products in the market also contains bentonite clay which is high in lead. However it is safe for ingestion and is in fact used to reduce bloatedness and diarrhoea. There is a possibility some people may have mild irritation on the skin or eyes when exposed to activated charcoal-- symptoms should resolve with rinsing.  



In fact I have tried Whitekish Magic Charcoal by JamuMall for the past 2 weeks. It contains activated charcoal made from coconut shell. Importantly Whitekish is approved by the Ministry of Health as a beauty product. Laboratory testing shows that Whitekish does not contain heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury, nor mould and bacteria. 


How I use Whitekish?



1. Mix some activated charcoal with water into a thick paste.

2. Apply the paste directly into the teeth.

3. Avoid rubbing the paste onto the teeth as it can be too abrasive.

4. Leave the paste on for 3 minutes.

5. Thoroughly rinse the mouth.

6. Brush gently using soft bristle toothbrush (do not be too harsh to avoid removing the enamel)

7. Use once a day in the first week then twice a week afterwards.


The label says brush using Whitekish twice a day during the first week and twice a week afterwards. For me, I prefer the method above as my teeth are already sensitive to start with. Other times I will recommend using a fluoridated toothpaste as Whitekish does not contain fluoride which is important for strong teeth, can prevent or even reverse dental decay. Fluoride (from water or toothpaste), when mixed in the calcium and phosphate in our saliva, forms fluoroapatite, which is the key defense against cavities. 


What does Dr Yingzangel think?



My teeth are naturally yellowish and I am embarrassed. I have tried many whitening products. Honestly none worked well until I tried Whitekish. 


This is my before and after photos just after a single use.


Whitekish is an affordable, safe and effective way to remove extrinsic stains on our teeth, as well as eliminating mouth odour. However, it is important to use it in moderation following the advice above to avoid eroding the enamel.
