I am back! After a long hiatus, settling down to a new routine and arrangement in my life now with job changes, babysitter changes, day care arrangement, etc, things have finally settled down a bit...at least for now..a new routine has set in for us!
And I am back with some good news to share with everyone!
If your child is age 3 years and below (yey, I have one! *grin*), you would be happy to check out this event of the year!
JOHNSON’S BABY OF THE YEAR 2014
Bigger and better this year, the 22nd edition of the Johnson’s Baby of the Year (BOTY) contest is the perfect platform for cute and bubbly, bright and active tots to steal the hearts of people all over Malaysia! From May 1 – June 30, Johnson’s Baby invites parents (and their beloved little ‘stars’) to join one of Malaysia’s most highly anticipated baby contests. Find out more on www.facebook.com/ilovejohnsonsbaby.com.
This is an annual event that many mothers and fathers look forward to as it allows them to celebrate the joy of parenthood with other proud parents all over Malaysia.”
This year, Johnson’s Baby teams up with a panel of paediatricians and neonatologist led by Dr Anna Padmavathy Soosai, and Johnson’s BOTY first-ever celebrity judge, Dynas Mokhtar, in support of discovering Malaysia’s all-round youngest stars! The Johnson’s BOTY 2014 contest honours a more holistic approach to a child’s development, going beyond the physical attributes to involve the cognitive and social-emotional aspects of development as well.
“There’s really nothing that comes close to the pride of parenthood, and as ambassador for Johnson’s Baby as well as the judge for the 2014 chapter, I hope that mothers and fathers take this contest as a chance to celebrate everything that is special about their child,” said Dynas Mokhtar, celebrated actress, local entrepreneur and mother of two.
In addition to offering new age-specific categories – 0-12 months, 13-24 months and 25-36 months, the Johnson’s BOTY 2014 contest is made bigger and better with new and exciting elements, including more prizes worth up to RM 100,000 to be won. On top of that, all babies will be made a Johnson’s Baby star and given spotlight in the media.
This year, the contest also brings in a community element through OrphanCARE Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps abandoned babies and orphans find loving homes – for every contest entry, RM1 will be donated towards OrphanCARE’s adoption programs.
“Working with Johnson’s Baby is a wonderful way to raise awareness about the many children who need good homes where they will be loved and nurtured,” said Pn Rabitah Hani, Committee Member of OrphanCARE. “Every child needs a family and there are many couples looking for children to complete their lives, hence our mission is to reduce the number of children in orphanages by shortening the matching and adoption process. The support and awareness from being part of the Johnson’s BOTY contest will help us help more children.”
