KLEENEX® MAKES SOFTNESS A MALAYSIAN WAY OF LIFE

KLEENEX® MAKES SOFTNESS A MALAYSIAN WAY OF LIFE
  • Share the Softness and celebrate Malaysia Day by bringing a caring and gentle touch to everyone
  • Join forces to make a difference and create 10,000 posts on Facebook to help more orphans find loving homes through OrphanCARE


As Malaysians celebrate the establishment of the Malaysian federation 50 years ago, Kleenex® gives Malaysians a new way to mark the occasion – by performing simple acts of softness through the Share the Softness campaign. The campaign aims to reach at least 10, 000 posts to create a tidal wave of softness among Malaysians!

Every occasion, big and small, can be made meaningful with a touch of softness, and Kleenex® reminds more Malaysians everywhere to make Malaysia a softer place by taking a moment to reach out to their loved ones and share a kind or caring word. From now until September 27, the brand invites Malaysians to express their care via Facebook with a simple tag and stand a chance to be rewarded with prizes worth RM10, 000.

What’s more, these acts of softness take on a whole new meaning as every Facebook post also helps to contribute towards OrphanCARE, a non-profit organisation that helps abandoned babies and orphans find loving homes.

Take this chance to make a difference in the lives of those around you, as well as those who are less fortunate – even psychologists recognise that the little things really matter, from small gestures between loved ones like making each other a cup of tea1 to being more polite and courteous when speaking to one another2. Simple and positive acts are the key to building and leading a happier life3, and researchers acknowledge that a single individual has the power to influence the way another person feels4, hence a single act of softness can make a big difference in someone else’s life.

Love the Kleenex protect and Kleenex facial tissue, they are suitable for travel size to use. 
Even my 3 year old toddler knows how to keep himself clean, it's gentle on skin.
I bring along the Kleenex Protect Hand Sanitizing Moist Wipes with me so that I can use it for myself or even on my loved ones. It's gentle, alcohol free formula, safe for children. 

Whether it’s a simple encouragement or an invitation to catch up, a touch of softness can make someone feel treasured.  To participate, all you have to do is ‘Like’ Kleenex® Malaysia’s Facebook page, look out for the “Share The Softness” Facebook contest posts, and start sharing the softness. Tag a spouse, friend, family member, or neighbour in the comments section of the contest posts and let them know how much you care. Do include #kleenexsoftness too!


My sons taking care of each other, they share the love and joy together. 
The joy of seeing them helping each other to clean up warm up my heart.
I am happy of their being caring each other, they are my pride and joy.
I had ectopic pregnancy before having my boys. 
I conceived my boys with only left fallopian tube. 

Done my entry to join the "Share The Softness" Facebook contest posts, you can join too, don't forget to tag your loved one then hashtag #kleenexsoftness 

The most endearing messages will win an exclusive, limited edition Kleenex® Softness Pack and prizes like a Polaroid camera, Longchamp bag, Thomas Sabo bracelet, and more!
Not forgetting those who are less fortunate, every Share the Softness post on Facebook plus every purchase from the Kleenex® CSR product range is equivalent to a RM0.50 donation to OrphanCARE; just SMS in the unique code found in the Kleenex® products.

For more details on how to Share the Softness, just log on to the Kleenex® Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Kleenex.Malaysia). For more information on Kleenex®, please call the Kimberly-Clark Consumer Care-line at 1-800-82-1188 (toll-free) on weekdays from 9am to 5pm.

I haven't been up to Genting Highlands since 1998, the last time was with my parents and my dear when we are still dating. I can recalled we stay in two rooms, Theme Park Hotel where he and my dad same room, while my mom and I same room. But I don't know why we didn't go to Casino but we did go for the kids amusement park where we pay to play the games. I remembered winning some toys back home.

It's a flash back on the year 1998, this year we have plan to go Genting Highland. Recently I book a room using the winning letter that I won from Elmo Street roadshow at 1 Utama. Son was the one that spin the wheel, not sure if we'll get same prize if I am the one that spin it.

Anyway I have tried asking for booking number for the room 2D/1N in 1st World Hotel. Just today, they have replied me as following..

Hanz de Fuko in Australia

You need to have products that make your store or other retail operation stand out from your competitors. IHP Health and Organics carry the Hanz de Fuko hair products and Pure Illumination lip gloss. They are the official distributors of both these products in Australia. IHP knows they won’t be successful unless you are, and so they always approach their relationship with you as a partnership rather than simply a vendor.

Since their inception in 2009, the Hanz de Fuko natural hair products are at the forefront of hair products for men. They are both very effective for styling, and made from natural, organic ingredients. They replenish and rejuvenate the hair and scalp while they style. For more information about Hanz de Fuko in Australia, go to their Facebook page.

They also carry the Pure Illumination line of lip gloss. These are natural cosmetics, that can be applied anywhere because they come with a mini-mirror and an LED light.

Being mommy of two boys, I know it's important that we have balance meal for ourselves and our children. Do you have hard time to give fruits to feed your child? I am happy to have attended the Food Art I learn so much from there. Thanks to Zespri Kiwifruit Malaysia, for this invitation.
It is my first time to go Marmalade Cafe, it's located not far from the 7-11 outlet, just need to walk all the way to the end.
Marmalade Cafe is at the end of office block.

Nice table setting with tools and many Zespri Kiwifruit.

I can't believe I can do it, so can you but beware knife and sharp tools are not suitable for children.

Puan Nurul Aziah Musa a consultant Dietitian in private sector, she has 14 years of experience. 
She explains to use about kiwifruit and digestive health. 
A study found that out of the 27 most commonly eaten fruits, kiwifruit is the most nutrient dense.

Nutrient dense = Low in calories, high in nutrients.

Kiwifruit is one of the nature's perfect food.

Benefits of Kiwifruit for Digestive Health
Digestive Disorders?
-Constipation
- Indigestion
- Gastric Reflux
- Bloating
- Nausea
- Stomach ache
- Delayed gastric emptying

Do you know what is Actinidin?
An enzyme found in kiwifruit which breakdowns proteins and improves gastric digestion
- Reduces sensation of heaviness associated with protein rich foods
- Improves the absorption of proteins

Aunty Kiwi was there to explains to us too about Zespri Kiwifruit, she says that the kiwi are freshly pluck and if it falls on the ground, the worker will not use them. 

Who doesn't like Vitamin C? Do you know that each serving of kiwifruit has nearly 2 1/2 times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. Vitamin C is proven to boost the immune system and fight the effects of the stress and aging.

 Lee Samantha is there to teach us fun and amazing way to prepare meals for child. If you have followed her on instagram, you'll know her.

Lee Samantha explains to us that she usually sketches before making the food art. 
It's amazing how she can gets the idea so quickly, she says that she saw a cat on the street, then she thinks of the cat as hungry for a fish.
How to make the empty plate looks more interesting? Using the kiwifruit, strawberry jam, bread, peanut butter jam or butter. 

It's really up to you on how you like to put them together, look I have created this cute orange cat dreaming of a fish. Oh well... after holding the plate straight the fish becomes a bird.

Selfie time with Lee Samantha, check out my creation of food art using Zespri Kiwifruit. 

They are two types of Zespri Kiwifruit, Green Kiwifruit and SunGold Kiwifruit.
The way to difference them is Zespri Green kiwifruit is hairy while SunGold Kiwifruit is not.
Zespri Green Kiwifruit - Love the Fibre Boost!
Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit - Delicious Juicy n Refreshing sweet

How to Ripen Zespri Green Kiwifruit?
Put in a bag with fruits such as apples or bananas
Fruit taste sweeter when slightly soft or ripe.
Store at room temperature for 2-5 days for better riipening.

It's simple and easy making food art, everyone can do it.
