"Tiada Ngilu, Hidup Ceria" Chill Festival Launch.

ADVERTORIAL POST (please scroll down to read my latest entry).

Tiada Ngilu, Hidup Ceria. Tagline tu memang perfect sangat. Sebab kalau ada masalah ngilu and gigi sensitif, memang tak ceria lah hidup jadinya. Or kurang ceria, sebab banyak benda tak boleh makan hehe. Yer la, imagine bila kita nak makan ice cream rasa ngilu, icy cold water rasa ngilu, hot coffee ngilu and many more, confirm stress and kurang ceria kan.

Anyway, I was invited to attend 'Tiada Ngilu, Hidup Ceria' Chill Festival launch last week and it was such an eye opening event. You know why, because most of us tend to ignore this "ouchhh zinging" problem and ended up telling ourselves, "nak buat macam mana dah tak boleh makan". No, we can actually overcome the problem but of course it is not an overnight work.

So this is where Sensodyne came to the rescue! Confirm kita semua pun biasa tengok iklan ubat gigi Sensodyne dekat tv and the term "masalah gigi sensitif" tu memang buat kita ingat Sensodyne products kan kan kan?

GSK launches Sensodyne ‘Tiada Ngilu, Hidup Ceria’ Chill Festival to encourage Malaysians to take control of tooth sensitivity and this campaign is targeted to reach 1 million Malaysians. Sounds too much? Worry not as Sensodyne roving team will be visiting 53 spots all over Malaysia. So yeah, sila perhati kiri kanan mana tau terjumpa the roving team, sebab Sensodyne is collaborating with Chatime Malaysia, Teochew Chendul and The Potong too! So besides product sampling nanti ada jugak other on-ground activities to encourage rakyat Malaysia untuk buat "tooth sensitivity checks".


Tapi kalau dah tak bernasib baik nak jumpa the team, you all boleh je buat test to online. Check this out. Sensodyne Tooth Sensitivity Check. So cool kan? I dah buat masa launch event hari tu and yeah, tiada masalah gigi sensitif. Well obviously, otherwise takkan la boleh cipta hashtag #shilashowerfoodland. Nevertheless, I guna jugak Sensodyne tooth paste sebab the product is formulated to protect from tooth sensitivity. To protect, so nak kena jaga lapisan gigi ni baik-baik supaya boleh terus makan ice cream, ice latte, ais kacang and so on hehehe.


The Oral Care Usage and Attitude study by Ipsos also reveals that 87% of Malaysians are aware of the conditions of sensitive teeth, making it the number one oral health issue in Malaysia and only one third uses sensitive toothpaste to overcome the problem.

Between, according to Dr Nurul Huda Hassan (Dental Surgeon yang super hot!), it is the regular daily use of toothpaste for sensitive teeth that maintains the sensitivity protection. And be aware that if kita berus gigi terlalu kuat pun boleh menyebabkan gigi sensitive, so jangan nak sental gigi bersungguh-sungguh sangat hehe. It's a common dental problem after all, but how we tackle it that makes a different.


For info, Sensodyne Base range which includes Sensodyne Fresh Mint, Sensodyne Gentle Whitening and Sensodyne Gum Care toothpastes are specially formulated to help protect against sensitivity, whereas Sensodyne Repair and Protect with Novamin helps repair sensitive teeth. For those who want instant relief from tooth sensitivity may use Sensodyne Rapid Relief that works in 60 seconds and which is formulated to create a physical seal against sensitivity triggers when used as directed.

Disneyland Hong Kong - Part 3

Ok, cerita dah setahun lebih, sampai dah pergi Disneyland Paris, yang Hong Kong tak habis-habis lagi. Haha. Memang nak sangat habiskan semua cerita jalan-jalan tu, tapi selalu tak sempat cari masa nak buat karangan. So I cuba lah this time.


Bukan cuba buat blog post, tapi cuba untuk recall balik the DOs and DONTs and other tips that probably be useful untuk topik Disneyland Park Hong Kong.

For this trip ni, park tickets dah beli siap-siap online, so jimat masa tak perlu beratur panjang untuk beli tiket lagi. Sebab waktu kami pergi ni super peak season, just after Christmas and New Year Eve so boleh tahan jugak crowd dia. Cuma kena bawak transaction documents tu pergi dekat this dedicated online tickets counter, untuk claim the official park tickets (yang gambar Disney's characters tuuu). Jangan risau sangat rasa macam susah ke apa sebab semua tempat/counters/attractions ada proper signage. In English.

Info on park tickets (as in price) boleh refer sini.

From Disney Hollywood Hotel to Disney Park kita orang naik shuttle bus. Betul-betul depan hotel and quite frequent trip dia, so memang tak pernah tunggu lama, not even 10 minutes. So ok lah, sebab masa ni sejuk kalau time angin tiup tu memang brain freeze la rasa dia. The same shuttle bus jugak untuk pergi train station (train line to City) sebab station tu dekat Disney Park.





TIPS #1
Strollers. Anak-anak kami ikutkan dah besar la kot kan masa ni, 3 and 4 years old. Tapi budak-budak, kalau time dia penat, memang dia buatlah perangai malas nak jalan and all. So diGALAKkan sangat untuk bawa or rent stroller. Boleh sewa jugak, fee dia HK$100 and refundable deposit HK$100. Further info boleh refer here.


TIPS #2
Food for kids. Bawak lah foods untuk kids. I bawak biscuits, Milo ke apa tah lagi untuk Adam & Aiman. Yes their policy memang "No Outside Food" tapi bila ada budak ni dia orang macam takde la strict sangat masa tu. Tapi janganlah bawak macam nak berpicnic sangat dalam tu. I dah siap create alasan dah, kalau tak lepas I nak cakap my son Adam ada eczema so he can only eat certain foods. Tapi dia tak kata apa pun, lepas je semua foods tu hehe.

TIPS #3
One day pass is definitely NOT enough. Sebab bila baca review, majority orang kata HK Disneyland Park kecik je, sehari pun sempat tawaf. Tapi I lupa laaaa yang cakap kecik tu semua review orang bujang. Yang masuk park, zassss zassss boleh main sana sini, que apa semua. I lupa lah I ni level mak-mak, jalan selangkah anak nak masuk kedai. Jalan lagi anak nak pergi toilet. Jalan lagi anak cari makan. Dan segala macam pit stop which at the end menjadikan satu hari memang tak cukup. Tu baru anak dua orang yang cranky level quite low, cuma banyak berhenti sana sini. So plan well parents. Macam kami mana-mana area yang extreme tu tak masuk pun, banyak dahulukan area yang kids friendly je. Orrr maybe advice tu dah outdated sebab at this point pun dah ada three new attractions yang baru buka, so memang tak cukup sehari.

TIPS #4
Halal Eateries. Ada 2, Tahitian Terrace (Adventureland) and Explorer's Club (Mystic Point). Kami makan dekat Tahitian Terrace, menu Asian and order dekat counter. Bukan spesis buffet lah. Kita orang dine in dua kali dekat sini, lunch and dinner. Senang. Further info on halal restaurants in Disneyland HK (hotel and park), boleh refer SINI.



TIPS #5
Study show times and plan nak ronda macam mana. Sebab parades, fireworks, meet & greet and stage shows semua ada time dia. So kena highlight jugak mana yang paling top priority and mana yang nak exclude sebab macam kami yang beli 1-day pass, mana cukup nak cover semua. Jangan masuk park tu menonong je cuba nasib beratur mana suka. Nanti rugi masa. Tu pendapat I lah ehehe. Yang paling utama jangan miss FIREWORKS show tu, bersabar je la dengan kids sampai malam hehee. Macam kami stay dekat Disney Hollywood tu, petang tu lari balik hotel kejap sebab nak refresh kids and nak solat. Very much thanks to the shuttle service yang agak kerap jugak.



TIPS #6
Fast Pass. Nampak je tulis pass tapi takde extra charge. Cuma dia memudahkan kita from beratur panjang-panjang. Masukkan ticket kita dekat fast pass machine tu, nanti dia akan issue ticket with time to return stated on it. So kita datang lah balik ikut time stated and dia ada specific line for fast pass holders. Tapi kita orang tak buat pun, sebab untuk rides yang kami naik waiting time dia tak lama. So beratur je lah. Every rides tu dia ada area untuk park strollers, so letak je situ and selamat Inshaallah. Tengok orang lain tinggal siap dengan diaperbag shopping bags semua situ.

TIPS #7
Meet & Greet Disney Characters. Kena check dekat booklet dia area mana and pukul berapa sebab Mickey bukan dijumpai di mana-mana area dalam Disney Park ehehehe. Kalau tak check timing memang jenuh beratur. Kalau tak check location dia, lagi jenuh nak pusing cari satu park tu.






TIPS #8
Washroom. I rasa macam takde air je washroom dia, tak berapa ingat lah. Tapi I memang bawak botol air mineral kosong dalam beg, so nak pergi toilet isi lah air dalam tu hehe. And wet wipes paling wajib bawak, hand sanitizer and mini shower gel. Macam kecoh je nak angkut semua kan tapi well, di kawasan khalayak ramai I cuba je la sedaya upaya nak jaga kebersihan family. Jadilah. After all tak take space banyak mana pun. Sebab budak-budak kejap nak air, kejap makan biscuits, lepas tu popcorn, lepas tu nak pergi toilet, kalau takde bahan-bahan tadi, haihhhhh jenuh melekit tangan!

TIPS #9
Disney Stores. Pandai-pandai lah siap sedia sebab Disney stores tu memang menggugat jiwa. Sangat. Walaupun rasa alah budak-budak je nak beria dalam ni, kita ni dah tua apa la sangat. Ohhhh memang tidak lah ok. Memang ada je benda nak merapu dalam tu. Tu belum budak-budak nak buat kenduri mintak itu ini. Memang kena tingkatkan kesabaran dekat situ. Rasa kalau diri spesis impulsive buyer haha sila lah bawak bekalan HK$ lebih sikit :P



TIPS #10
Keep calm and enjoy. Serious. Nampak macam tak tips sangat, tapi tu sebenarnya memang tips ahahaha. Especially untuk parents yang ada anak kecik. Yer la, mungkin along the way tu terjadi macam-macam situasi menggugat kesabaran tapi at the end of the day, we want to create the memories, cherish the moments and etc. So yeah, apa jadi pun kena keep calm and enjoy! Walaupun anak mintak beli waffle and popcorn tu 5-6 kali lepas tu makan tak habis. Hehehee.





























Rumah Shilashower: IKEA Bedroom and Bathroom

As many of you already know, I've been IKEA-ing our house so much and some even said that the house is like a mini IKEA haha. Ok, takde la sampai mini IKEA pun but yes I admit that most of our major furniture particularly anything that has got to do with storage, is from IKEA. Because IKEA is the only cool place I know that produce brilliant storage products even for a tiny store room. They just know how to manipulate space and like what I said before, store room kecik gloomy pun boleh jadi stylo with IKEA products hehe.



Of course there were few other reasons that we considered prior IKEA-ing our house that time. On top of them being genius in maximizing the usage of space (especially when it's already limited like our hmphhh 1300 sq ft condo? haha), the reasonable price (very cheap for some and quite impossible to walk empty handed from IKEA hahaha kannnn?) and some even lowerrrr price after certain period of time. Well mainly for hot selling items; konsepnya bila ramai orang suka, they will produce more and sell more and with that, they can offer even a lower price than before. Basically supply demand thing, but worry not, never go up! :)

Then sebab ada items yang IKEA offer LONGGGG guarantee period like PAX wardrobe system (10 years!) or their mattress (25 years! basically until the kids all grown up and ready to get married, so beli la tilam baru sendiri haha). But it's ok if you takde those items pun because their normal "100 days love or exchange" policy pun dah cool sangat ok.

Yeah cool in a way that; if let say you buy the mattress, then you used it until day 99 before you noticed that the mattress is just not something that comfort you most, hah sila tukar. Serious boleh tukar ok. But of course item in sell-able condition (bukan dah tumpah susu anak atas tilam semua haha) and with original proof of payment lah kan.


Not only that, the "0% Interest Payment Plan" for Maybank cardholders tu yang penting jugak hehe (and they offered to Citibank and Alliance Bank cardholders too). Something for us to consider when purchasing the above RM1000 furniture lah hehe.

So, activity paling latest I adalah revamping the kids bedroom and of course sikit-sikit touch up dekat master bedroom storage area. Well, since the wife already conquered like what, 80% of the storage area hahaha so kenalah kemas and susun cantik-cantik so that the husband will still be able to find his 20% remaining space. :P 

Contohnya MALM chest of 4 drawers ni, I bagi top drawer untuk my husband while the rest are for me. What to doooo, I got more stuff than himmmm. And the same MALM chest of 3 drawers for my kids clothing as well. MALM chest drawers ni macam famous sangat like most household ada drawer ni kan, sama macam BILLY bookcase tu hehe. Tapi for the boys' room I kena guna SKUBB storage box so they can easily identify which part for their socks, hats, briefs and etc. Kalau tak guna tu, memang huru hara bersepah drawer. T___T





And I just cannot live without this wire basket, Encik ANTONIUS nama dia. I couldn't imagine how the wardrobe look like without ANTONIUS-es hehe. Guna wire basket ni, senang sikit bila nak cari barang or nak kemas-kemas especially for bedsheets. My Insta followers kata I OCD which hahahahhha NOT, no I am not cuma in the best way possible I love seeing things organized. But of course I can tolerate mess jugak, because I have 2 boys kan? Mana lah logic kalau tak bersepah. But like I mentioned, in the best way possible I akan organize things because that after all provide comfort to the home especially for the bedroom.



So don't be surprise if you see a lottttt of IKEA boxes around the house jugak. Konsepnya biarlah luaran storage nampak cantik, whatever inside the box it's ok hahaha kalau bersepah dimaafkan. :P TJENA, DRONA and KASSETT memang banyak dalam rumah ni. Tu semua kotak-kotak storage yang tak dapat dipisahkan dari Shilashower hehehehe. Barang I banyak sangat, so all the boxes come handy for my limited storage space.


Oh, I nak tanya siapa sini suka IKEA bedsheet range? I'm not sure if it just me or what, tapi bedlinen IKEA ni jenis rasa sejuk and quilt dia memang buat rasa malas sangat nak turun dari katil. Dulu I guna bedlinen only until last year I beli the quilt sekali sebab lepas guna dekat bilik my adik, I was like wehhhh cool sedap giler ni quilt dia. Tengok curtain pun IKEA, hahahaha macam mana orang tak remarks mini IKEA kan. :P




Hah lupa nak cerita lagi, hari tu I claim my points from IKEA FAMILY card tu. Hah, 3-4 tahun punya hasil membeli, dapat vouchers boleh la redeem dua RONNSKAR shelving units ni for kid's bathroom. Heh, bila nak redeem kena redeem barang besar, kalau kecik-kecik macam tak puas kumpul hehehehe. Bathroom kan the most private yet very public too, kena kemas and bersih kan sebab it portrays the household entirely.



(BYGEL wire basket ni actually kitchen punya item, tapi macam sesuai je letak toiletries dekat bathroom ni hehe)


(KNODD bin with lid. Instead using it as a dustbin, guna untuk store cleaning iteams)


So, ada rasa nak pergi IKEA sekarang? :P Quite a lengthy post hahaha, sekarang Shilashower nak pergi sambung kemas baju Adam and Aiman. No folding required (read: lazy) kita guna hanger saje. Hehehe.


Nah, I share sikit what I have done to the kids room recently. ;)
