    Did you know that Blueberries are one of the most nutritious, low calorie and health beneficial superfoods on the planet?! Yes, it's true these little blue antioxidant-rich fruits are highly recommended by Doctors, Nutritionists and Scientists in reducing your risk of developing chronic diseases.

    Blueberries might be small in size but definitely prove that great things come in small packages! These sweet and hugely popular berries are packed full of nutrients and are known to fend off heart disease, cancer and brain ageing. The US Highbush Blueberry Council recently launched "The Little Blue Champion" campaign @Village Grocer MYTown Shopping Mall KL, celebrating the amazing health properties and benefits of these little health powerhouses.

    Native to North America, blueberries flourish from April to late September. The good news is that they are conveniently available frozen, all year round. Frozen blueberries available in retail are frozen straight from the farm, with all the nutrients, freshness and flavour locked in. They can be kept in the freezer for at least 10 months and is a healthy option, whether you're grabbing a quick snack, a topping for oatmeal in the morning or making a smoothie at home.

    Present at the launch, Mr Bill Verzani, the Agriculture Attaché at USDA-Foreign Agricultural Service said US Highbush Blueberries are cultivated by around 2,500 farmers in farms where climates are perfect for the best blueberries. "The US is the world's largest producer of blueberries and we work hard to produce the best quality cultivated blueberries which are shipped fresh to the rest of the world." He added that the world is witnessing a renaissance in the enjoyment of blueberries thanks to its powerful health benefits and its versatility in recipes.

    Ms Phornthip Poolprasert, Regional Marketing Representative of the US Highbush Blueberry Council for SE Asia believes Highbush Blueberries are the best in the world. She gave some tips on choosing the best and freshest blueberries at the supermarket. "Look out for the silvery sheen that's known as bloom. The more bloom, the fresher the blueberry," she advised.

    Blueberry Milk & Cauliflower Blueberry Muffins 
    During the launch, I got to meet Malaysian fitness icon and health advocate, Linora Low. She shared 2 easy recipes - Blueberry Milk and Cauliflower Blueberry Muffin. She is a big fan of Blueberries, as she leads a healthy active lifestyle with a packed schedule and says, "They're a great snack that keeps you feeling full & satiated, reduces inflammation and lowers blood pressure. They also contain only 80 calories per cup, virtually no fat and are low in sodium."

    She recommended getting kids as young as toddlers to start snacking on blueberries to benefit from its ability to improve cognitive abilities. "This is a creative way to get your kids to drink their milk every day and can be prepared quickly with fresh or frozen blueberries," she added.

    My Printcious Review

    9.17.2019


    did you notice something different about our last workshop?

    As a Mamasan and party planner for my community, one of the essentials that I needed to have was to get a bunting so my community members can spot us from afar. Well, it's also because it makes the whole party or event more professional looking? I feel that's just pretentious to say but it's true, a bunting of your logo makes it more official and double as exposure for your brand (in my case, my community).


    Jessica Tan Hilton Social Media Manager
    Victor Goh Gentleman's Code (media)

    I've been printing the usual A2 foamboards but my friend Yee Ming scolded me about getting a proper bunting (yeah sigh). Several reasons why I didn't for the past 6 years was because I stayed in a studio apartment that's very tiny. The moment I walked in, I could already see my bedroom (that's how small it is). It's very cozy, I love it but I don't have much storage space or space to put things.

    For this reason alone I am grateful because that helped me a lot in stopping me from buying unnecessary items as I wouldn't have space for it. Think minimalist living Marie Kondo.

    The second reason was that I rather spend on other things my community needs like paying for our domain name, hosting and covering expenses involved in the upkeep and activities of the community.

    YAS it's our beautiful community buntings!
    (thanks to Yih Ying and Tiffany to be our bunting models)

    But thanks to Printcious, I could finally have two buntings made so I could bring them to community parties, events, workshops, and gatherings to display! The moment I received them from the delivery guy, I was like "OMG FINALLY". The moment Yee Ming (who scolded me about not getting proper buntings) set up the bunting (while I was busy running around making sure everything else is in order) we were both standing there admiring how beautiful it was.

    Hari ini dalam sejarah you know.

    two types of buntings available

    On Printcious, there were two types of buntings you could choose from. The Roll Ups RM250 and the Tripod Stands RM145. I wanted to get the roll-ups but the budget I have is enough for two tripod stand buntings. I should've bought the roll ups because the tripod stands are kinda long and because I don't drive, that's can be a bit tough to work with.

    once you select the service you need you can start designing it
    Description:
    The tripod stand bunting is easy to handle and to set up. With our good quality of photo printing, the tripod stand bunting will be able to attract prospective customer to your booth. You just pull it out when you need it and insert the bunting will do. Tripod stand bunting is ideal for in-store promotions, reception areas, outdoor function and so on.

    Size: 60cm x 150cm
    Printing Side: 1-sided
    Material Type: 180 gsm Photo PVC Paper

    Including stand.

    My Review:
    It's my first time putting an order here so I could say it's really easy to use and I'm no genius here. I registered a new account, started selecting the service I needed which is the tripod stand and then I needed to design my bunting on the page itself just by uploading the visual! Was fun and I did this in just under an hour (rushing to put in an order so I could get the delivery fast). I paid RM10 for the shipping fee.

    The website says delivery is in 2 - 4 working days but I got mine after two weeks of waiting. I thought it would be Photo PVC paper but the material felt like tarpaulin (hmmm) and it was shedding at the sides as well. I had to trim the sides off so it would look presentable.

    Overall, easy to set up like what the description said. I would try the roll ups next time to see if that is more portable than tripod stands.

    Easy Steps To Create Your Own Gift
    choose - upload - add or edit - place order


    DIY Personalised Gifts & Photo Gift Ideas

    Obviously, Printcious doesn't just print buntings, they're actually a gift printing customization for like birthday gifts, wedding gifts, corporate gifts and even for photo booth rental. The name Printcious is actually too cute, I can't even. I see many friends print those couple cushions from here you know!

    The 1PAY E-WALLET is an enhancement of its existing ONECARD Privileges loyalty program.

    the 1st mall in Malaysia to go CASHLESS!

    Shopping is now made much easier and more flexible with 1PAY, as you can pay for purchases by scanning a QR code via the 1Utama's Mobile App at 1PAY outlets. Every 1PAY E-WALLET stores Cash balance of up to a maximum of RM1,500 at any one time. Other FEATURES include options to:
    • Link debit/credit cards/bank accounts into E-WALLET

He further stated that "Currently there are 25,000 1PAY users and it's our target to achieve 50% of our ONECARD membership base to use 1PAY by December 2020". Since 1PAY's rollout in March 2019, 30% of 1Utama's retailers have signed up for 1PAY and the mall hopes to achieve 80-90% of participation by December 2020.

    My Merdeka Month Online Shopping Tips

    8.21.2019

    hello? I'd need a dose of online shopping please

    One thing I love about online shopping is all the crazy deals that come with it. This month, I bet everyone is looking at the Merdeka deals. Even me, I'm looking to also have my garage sales so my readers can stock up their beauty products and save at the same time. Do look out for my Instagram and Facebook for it! Who knows you might find something you like.

    another reason to celebrate Merdeka this August!

    Althea Korea is now on Lazada!

    Since we're also talking about this, I want to share that Althea Korea is now available on Lazada Malaysia! I wonder if you have seen the Lazada Althea Flagship Store? You can find the best-selling Althea A'bloom masks there along with other Althea exclusive products and trendy Kbeauty brands. Look out for the grand launching promotions, exclusive Althea X Lazada beauty box (slash off prices), and special deals. Honestly, I wouldn't buy anything on Lazada if I don't have a Lazada Voucher at hand.

    It's like my shopping mantra, no voucher no buy.

    FYI, I bought a very nice pink European Afternoon Tea Set from Lazada and it took over a month to reach me. I wanted to cancel it but it was already too late. If anyone wants to buy this over from me at RM170 (losing a bit, I paid RM180++ for this with delivery) you can come to pick it up from my home (Damansara Perdana) or office (Menara UOA Bangsar). It's still in the box and in good condition (nothing broken).

    more pics + details click here

    I love pink with gold and elegant logos on the teacups. They're in a scallop or pumpkin shape design comes with teaspoons as well. Notice the gold rims? Beautiful. The material is porcelain. Please email me at tammylci@gmail.com or message me on Instagram or Facebook if you're interested to buy this off me. They're great not only for a cuppa but for flat lay or content photography which was the reason I bought them in the first place but right now I would rather go on a vacation with the extra money I have.

    Merdeka Flight Sale!

    Anyway since Merdeka is a long weekend holiday, I'm also looking at some flight tickets to Bali or Bangkok on Malaysia Airlines (MAS). My friend Jo says she always gets good deals on air flights back to Jakarta using Malaysia Airlines Promotion. I'll stalk their site to see if they're going to have super savers on destinations I want to go. I really need the break :(

    I want to go eat Jay Fai's Michelin Star food stall
    (image credit Michelin Guide & The Guardian

    I really really wish I could try that Micheline star Chinese noodle hawker store in Bangkok. My fiance is right now in Bangkok and my ex-staff, Bokoaz took him out to all the good yummy street food last Friday. She shared some pictures, but not enough. I want to be there too! She said they waited in line for over 30mins for the popular grilled squid too.

    Oh man *tummy grumbles*

    Mission Foods Launch 'Breakfast Of Champions' Campaign

    8.04.2019

    L-R Malaysian Gymnast Farah Ann, Mark Tan (Retail Sales Manager of Mission Foods Malaysia), Cosme Martinez (CFO of Asia and Oceania), Randall Tan (Mission Foods Brand Manager South Asia) & Malaysian MMA Fighter Peter Davis at the launch of Mission's new healthy wraps range. 
    "Breakfast of Champions" sounds really appetizing and appealing right? Well, you too can wake up in the morning kickstart your day feeling like a winner eating what Malaysian Gold Medallist Gymnast Farah Ann and MMA Champion Peter Davis eat for breakfast thanks to Mission Foods new campaign. Last week they launched their new line of healthy wraps @Yellow Brick Road Café, Bukit Damansara, where they teamed up with promising new athletes Farah Ann & Peter Davis. We were given a glimpse of what winners eat when they shared their favourite breakfast recipes at the event. (They even showed off their culinary skills too by cooking their own food!)

    Mission Foods are the world's largest flatbread producer and their aim is to support those of you out there who are interested in living an active and healthy lifestyle. The healthy wraps are available in 3 different varieties, Reduced Carb, Quinoa, and Chia.

    Mission's new healthy wraps range Reduced Carb, Quinoa & Chia
    The Reduced Carb wraps are perfect for those of you who are on a low sugar and low carb diet, as they have 70% less carbs and 90% reduced sugar. Also, as they are high in fibre, you can also use them if you're on the Keto diet. These wraps are a favourite of Peter's, as he has recently turned pescatarian and he feels that the high fibre but low carb and sugar content is superior to other wraps in the market. The model, actor, host and professional MMA fighter stated,

    "As an MMA fighter, I have to stay sharp and focused at all times, to be swift like a coursing river. My energy level has to be constant throughout, and so I require food that is low in sugar, rich in fibre and protein which is why superfoods such as Quinoa and Chia benefits me tremendously." Well, if it's good enough for Peter then it can be good enough for you too!

    At the launch, he demonstrated 2 recipes - simple and cheesy 'Cheese and Onions' using the Chia wrap and 'Sea Bed' with the Quinoa wrap.

    Farah Ann & Peter having fun in the Mission Food kitchen
    Farah Ann & Peter showing their new favourite healthy Mission wrap breakfast recipes
    Farah Ann, an artistic gymnast who has a rigorous training regime both in the morning and afternoons, is a great believer in starting the day off with the right breakfast. She says, "Many people have the wrong idea and practice of skipping breakfast in order to stay fit and lean but this is not the right way. Not only does this do more harm to our body but it prevents us from staying on top of our game and leaves us feeling drained and moody by the end of the day."

    She made 2 fun and easy recipes - 'Banana in Chiajammies' using the Chia wrap, as well as, 'It's a Party in my Wrap' with the Reduced Carb wrap.

    The #BreakfastofChampions campaign is certainly something to look forward to as these champions give us a glimpse of what's on their plate, so we can be inspired to think, act and eat like a champion too. Nothing beats starting the day like a winner! (Still need to get your ass down to the gym or outside to exercise and work out though. No shortcuts lah, eating healthy only part of the overall process!)

    'Breakfast of Champions' Table
    Mission Foods new healthy wraps range are available at all leading supermarkets on the bread aisle alongside their existing range of Supersoft Wraps, Naan, Pita, Pizza Crusts and Chips.

    Taste Australia Launch 'Tasty & Nutritious' Avocado Campaign

    Taste Australia Haas Avocado Display Stand @Jaya Grocer, Starling Mall
    Have you heard that Avocados have taken the food industry by storm as one of the most consumed fruits on the market? Yes, this creamy, delicious superfood aka 'Green Goddess of fruits' is packed full of nutrients and healthy fats, making it a popular and must-have ingredient in a more healthier meal choice for consumers nowadays.

    Taste Australia, the national brand representing the Australian horticulture industry to support and drive the demand of fresh produce through engagements in key export markets, launched a Tasty and Nutritious Avocado campaign last week @Jaya Grocer Starling Mall. I was invited along to cover this event, which aims to inspire health-conscious Malaysians to make healthier food choices, as part of a more healthier lifestyle.

    Caitlin Noble (Trade Commissioner of Austrade), Alexandra Prabaharan (Nutrition & Health Advocate) & Marc Francois (Fresh Distribution Centre Head, Jaya Grocer) 
    Good news is that we can take advantage of these yummy, rich and creamy Australian Avocados of the highest quality all year round. And according to Caitlin Noble, Trade Commissioner of Austrade, they're air freighted at optimum maturity into Malaysia, ensuring freshness and ripeness. She claims that "When customers buy Australian Avocados, not only do they get 'farm to table' freshness, they are also buying into the country's very high environmental, food safety and employment requirements. And because we're so close, we can deliver the freshest products to Asia in 48 hours!"

    Opportunities for increasing supply into Malaysia has been made possible through the expectation of a large Hass Avocado harvest from growing regions all over Australia and continuing growth in production.

    According to certified nutritionist and health advocate, Alexandra Prabaharan, Australian Avocados are not only superior in taste but were also grown in a safe environment with generations of expertise involved to ensure they were the highest quality avocados available.

    She said, "Many know of the buttery and tasty appeal of the avocado but not everyone is aware of its powerful health benefits. The unique combination of vitamins and minerals found in avocados can:
    • help keep your immune system strong
    • boost your energy
    • enhance brain power 
    • increase bone strength 
    • aid gut health
    • support healthy skin
    • put you in a better mood!
    Ms Prabaharan further added that avocados could also boost the nutrition of other healthy foods, with research showing that adding avocado to a salad can increase your ability to absorb key nutrients in other fresh vegetables such as lycopene from red tomatoes and beta carotene from orange carrots.

    Alexandra Prabaharan making some yummy avocado treats
    During her demo session, she shared the many exciting ways to enjoy avocados and their versatility by producing 3 simple tasty recipes, which comprised of eggs, a smoothie and chocolate mousse dessert. Whether you're making a dip, salad, pasta, sandwich, smoothie or dessert, avocados are a fantastic ingredient to bring that creamy texture and bundle of health benefits to every dish.

    It's still a convenience store with over 9000 daily essential items that locals need, open 24 hours daily. Price is very competitive and value for money compared to 7-11 and Family Mart.



    Grazing table styled by Malaysia's top food influencer Eunice Martin Lim

    I had the chance to sample the food from downstairs where it was styled by Malaysia's winner of top food influencer award, Eunice Martin Lim in a grazing table style. A grazing table is technically a buffet-style decorative table that tends to include bread, dips, raw vegetables, fresh or dried fruits, nuts, olives, and pickles, but they can also foods such as bite-sized sandwiches, as long as it can be picked up by a hand once it hits a plate. 

    Amongst the food that I tried, I enjoyed the Panini's and Croissants filled with both tuna and egg salad most of all, being a big bread and pastry lover. I would definitely recommend you try them they're very tasty and filling. For all you dessert lovers, there was a variety of options from yummy cupcakes, buns, and muffins to puddings. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to try the Musang King flavored ice-cream but I'm already eyeing this up on my next visit, which I think will be one of the many highlights of this store.

    Many thanks to KK Super Mart for inviting us to the media launch of their brand new exciting concept store. Congratulations on the opening and we will drop by this weekend to take advantage of the buy 1 free 1 with our friends!
