Our favourite Tissue Brand and her new Baby

Hi folks!

Normally I am the one who does the "marketing" for household products in my family.

But there are certain brands which DH favours over the rest available in the market.

One being Kleenex® .

DH loves the quality of Kleenex® tissues which he says worth buying over other brands.

For me, I normally grab the "acceptable" brands which is having promotion ..hehe....cost-saving habits!

Now, when we were informed that Kleenex® is introducing her new baby, i.e. The brand new Kleenex® Hand Sanitizing Moist Wipes, we are more than happy to try out this "new baby" of  Kleenex®

After testing it, all I can say is I love the soft yet durable texture, and of course the "pocket-sized" which makes it very handy to place in my handbag for emergency use (of course when it is nice to use, doesn't mean we should use it all the time...think of our environment first!).

I have tried some other brands, some tore at initial retrieval, some tore at first few wipes, some "too wet". This one just fine....

The only thing that took the likings of my children(but not me) is the lovely smell....though it is pleasant smell but I cannot help to think of the "fragrance" behind. hehe...the "Sherlock Holmes" in me...however I find most wet wipes in the market tends to have some kinda smell...don't you think?

So, now if you like to try out this Kleenex tissues or get the limited edition with Disney cartoon prints, you can get at most hypermarkets or major pharmacies.

And yep, you can check out more about the very-much promoted kills 99.XX percent of bacteria, soft on hands and other special goodness marketed for this product!

Cheers to a clean and healthy wipes!

Disclaimer: I received 2 pkts of Kleenex wet wipes to test. All opinion are solely my own experience using it.

Do you Spank your kids?

Hi folks!

Do you spank your kids? I think most of us are brought up with the thought that "Spare the rod, spoilt the kids" concept. And since young, we ourselves might have gone through some sorts of spanking or punishment. But do you agree with such displinary measure?
I don't like to impose physical punishment to my children. However, there are times they can just test your patience and their "boundaries", so how do you tackle this? I must confess when my umpteen warnings go unheaded and what they are doing are causing harm either to themselves or their siblings, at times I might use "spanking" too.
Recently I came across an article in Parenthots, "How can spanking be healthy?" which I find it helpful as reference to us parents.
Here's the excerpt of the articles, for full content, do refer to Parenthots website.
How can spanking be healthy?

8 November 2010

It just seems barbaric to cause pain to a defenceless child. Tell me why you think it is healthy to spank him or her.

Corporal punishment, when used lovingly and properly, is beneficial to a child because it is in harmony with nature itself.

Consider the purpose of minor pain in a child's life and how he learns from it. Suppose two-year-old Peter pulls on a tablecloth and with it comes a vase of roses that cracks him between the eyes. From this pain, he learns that it is dangerous to pull on the tablecloth unless he knows what sits on it. When he touches a hot stove, he quickly learns that heat must be respected.

If he lives to be a hundred years old, he will never again reach out and touch the red-hot coils of a stove. The same lesson is learned when he pulls the doggy's tail and promptly gets a neat row of teeth marks across the back of his hand, or when he climbs out of his high chair when Mum isn't looking and discovers all about gravity

During the childhood years, he typically accumulates minor bumps, bruises, scratches, and burns, each one teaching him about life's boundaries. Do these experiences make him a violent person? No! The pain associated with these events teaches him to avoid making the same mistakes again. This pain mechanism is a valuable vehicle for instruction.

When a parent administers a reasonable spanking in response to wilful disobedience, a similar nonverbal message is being given to the child. He must understand that there are not only dangers in the physical world to be avoided. He should also be wary of dangers in his social world, such as defiance, sassiness, selfishness, temper tantrums, behaviour that puts his life in danger, that which hurts others, etc. The minor pain associated with this deliberate misbehaviour tends to inhibit it, just as discomfort works to shape behaviour in the physical world. Neither conveys hatred. Neither results in rejection. Neither makes the child more violent.

Lesson 3 from Parenthood- Respect

Hi folks!
Have you all faced difficulties in disciplining your children? I am sure most of us do, well unless you are blessed with angel-like kids!
One of the thing I try to practice is to explain with my kids. First, explain, next explain again, third time, issue warning. I dislike the idea of using physical punishment such as cane or commonly known as "rotan" in Malay. Even though there is saying " Spare the rod, spoil the kids." Nevertheless, I find that such practice might not work in this era or on all kids nowadays. Kids these days are smart to learn and pick up or even point out what you did with what you preach.
Are we, as an adult, able to practice what we preach? If we don't, do not be so fast to reprimand our kids. They are bright enough to point out our mistakes too. And if they do, " Are we humble enough to accept our mistakes and apologise as what we expect our kids to do when they committed the offence?"
I felt as parents, we ought to practice RESPECT for our children too. Then, we will find it easier to discipline them. By respecting our children, we are showing that we value their input and comments. Thus, they will also listen to our preaching.

There is not one but many occasions that my children taught and reminded me again and again things I have taught them, yet something which I have forgotten to practice them.
Let me illustrate some of the scenarios I experienced with my children which many of you might have witness in your kids too.
Scenario 1:
Mom: KY, please keep your books if you finish reading them.
KY: Silent, continue doing other stuff...
Mom: KY, will you playing with your toys and keep your books first?
KY: Silent, continue playing.
KY: Mommy, why are you SHOUTING at me. It is rude.
Mom: [shy]....
Scenario 2:
Mom: Shone, how many ounces of milk you like to have tonight?
Shone: 7oz mom. If too much, I cannot finish. Cannot waste right, mom?
Mom: Yes, Shone. Good boy. [feeling proud and happy he remembered my preaching]
(Note: I normally asked them as sometimes they might have taken some snacks at night which make them rather full to consume their normal milk intake at night. This makes them feel respected and avoid mommy getting upset when they cannot finish their milk)
How about you? Any success stories or precaution to share with us on RESPECT?
Love to hear from you!

This article is published in as part of my monthly contribution in their column. Check out if you are avid blogger and mom too! Cheers!

Women loves all things beautiful, agree?

Hi folks!

Now, most women loves things beautiful, don't we?

Examples of beautiful that most women loves:

Flawless, baby-like skin

Princess-like Shoes


How about pad with designs/prints:

Now, will you feel better during your monthly menses using such products?

Does it increases your self-confidence?

Does it add up to your fashion sense?

Wow, you think pad is no longer boring?

If you do, you may check out the Kotex LUXE Ultrathin DesignPads which is out now in the market from 1 Nov 2010 onwards at all Guardian, Giant, Jusco, Tesco and Watson outlets at MYR15.90 for packs of 20(23cm) and 14(32cm).

May this colourful prints cheer up your life!

So judge by yourself if this makes your life brighter and more colourful :)

I tried it on my last day of my menstrual cycle so not able to give much view on the absorption part, but the phycological feeling of "fashion-ness" does linger for a moment while wearing it..guess most women loves beautiful stuff, aren't we? But whether that will make us stay loyal to a particular fashionable products is rather subjective to each individual taste and preference. Try it yourself if you are curious how much you love beautiful stuff ';)

Disclaimer: I received some Kotex LUXE samples products to try out. All opinion is solely mine.

Pre-loved Sweet Cherry Stroller to Let Go*SOLD*

Hi Folks!

This stroller is a gift from my friends. However, as DH is not a big fan of stroller, we hardly use it(the most uses it 3 times). DH is more of a baby-wearer, who often use the baby carrier. So this stroller is still in a very good condition!

Actually I kind of like the removable padding material which is rather comfy for the baby and it is removable to be washed. Plus the big storage area at the bottom, very useful when go outdoor.

I am letting it go at MYR50**updated new promotion price***(excluding shipping). COD is available at Sri Petaling/Puchong/Wangsa Maju, Bkt. Jalil.

Serious buyer, please leave your comment with your contact(Phone No./email) here!
