Kao’s “Welcome To My Modern Parenthood” Phase 2

~ Posted on Monday, July 24, 2017 at 2:30 PM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 7 months old to 8 years old, I have started to really cut down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)

Over a year ago, the "Welcome to My Modern Parenthood" (WTMMP) campaign was launched to help new and anxious parents with minimal to zero know-how in transitioning into effortless, enjoyable parenthood through insights and education and I had a pleasant and wonderful experience reviewing products from Merries and Kao, so when I was contacted recently for another review, I immediately say yes! I mean, good stuff, how can one say no?!!!

This year, back by a popular demand, Kao Malaysia launched the Phase 2 of its highly successful “Welcome To My Modern Parenthood” campaign with the expanded “The Secret to My Modern Parenthood” parenting guidebook and enhanced home care solutions with a range of product brands like Merries, Magiclean and Attack.

Welcome to My Modern Parenthood

Phase 2 of the campaign is to give the consumers an opportunity to interact with Kao's products and learn how to properly use them. The improved guidebook now has a total of 18 chapters with topics on caring for a child into toddlerhood plus tips from experts, doctors and key opinion leaders. A total of 40,000 copies of the guidebook will be distributed this year through NGOs, hospitals and other childcare partners. Excited parents can also download the book for free through this website link: www.kao.com/my/my-modern-parenthood/index.html.

I'm a full-time mummyWe received the following products this time, they are basically the 3 ideal home care solutions:

  • Japan’s No.1* Baby Diaper, MERRIES (M and L size);

  • Japan’s No.1* Home Care Range, MAGICLEAN; 

  • Japan’s No.1* Laundry Brand, ATTACK

* Based on value share data reported by Intage, SRI for the Heavy Duty Laundry Detergent Category. (January 2016 to December 2016)

 

After all these years, I am still impressed with Merries diapers. Just love, love, love their pants diapers, so comfortable and yet snuggly and protectively ensuring no spillout or mess! I did say I love their diapers right? Pictures below taken of our 2nd kiddo when I reviewed Merries diapers back in year 2013 when it entered Malaysian market and now, 4 years on (with 2 more kiddos in the family since then), we are still very much happy and satisfied that our kiddos are still able to reap the benefits of such awesome products as they grow along!

We are also impressed with the Magiclean range of products and have used them in our house as well as in hubby's office. A must have range of products, really!!

As for the ATTACK range of products, I feel that the liquid detergent is not bad as well even though we use powder detergent before this. The detergent smells good and cleans our clothes wonderfully. The softener also made our clothes smooth and soft. Also, do take note the Attack “Hygiene and Anti-Bacterial” range now has a newly created anti-bacterial formulation from Japan, which keeps clothes smelling fresh longer as it offers sweat and odour prevention all day long. Coolness!


To sum up our experience, I'm so ever grateful and blessed to be given the opportunity again to review the wonderful range of products from Kao & Merries and yes, I do believe that they will truly transform your parenting life and makes it way more convenient for you to do your house chores!  

Such true happiness that you can only experience when you know you and your loved ones are in the hands of good quality products and reputable brand name!

Product Review - Samsung Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner

~ Posted on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 12:07 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 7 months old to 8 years old, I have started to really cut down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)

Extreme Colouring- Amazing World

Samsung VC5100 Canister

About the product:

"Samsung Malaysia Electronics recently introduced their newest innovation, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner. Malaysians can now say goodbye to physically removing tangled hair stands and dust from their cleaning tools with their hands! The Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner is a bag-less cleaner, set to elevate and optimize your household cleaning experience to a fuss-free one.

Samsung’s latest vacuum cleaner is equipped with the brand’s first CycloneForceTM with Anti-Tangle Turbine which blows hair strands, dust and crumbs out of the edge of the turbine fan. This ensures that the turbine fan rotates continuously to provide consistent suction power, and prevents the turbine grille from clogging, saving time on removing entangled hairs in the vacuum with your hands when cleaning.

Powered by a powerful motor with an innovative pick-up brush that adheres to floors for even pressure spread, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner has extreme suction power which quickly and thoroughly sucks up dust, hair and dirt without clogging on various floor surfaces. The new vacuum cleaner also comes with an Anti-Tangle tool which is designed to have two separate airflows for the dust and hair inlet, and the air flow inlet. Thus, preventing hair tangles on the brush bar and shaft of the turbine fan.

For simple and convenient maintenance, the vacuum cleaner comes with an Easy Dustbin. With just the push of a button, you can easily detach the dustbin and empty the contents into a trash can. Additionally, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner’s durable sponge type foam filter captures more dust and can be easily washed and cleaned by simply rinsing it to prevent clogging and maintain its suction power. This latest Samsung innovation also comes complete with a 2-year manufacturer warranty for consumers to have a peace of mind."

What a godsend awesome timing to receive the email invitation to review the Samsung Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner as I was excited with the prospect of fully utilizing it as my hubby's company was in the midst to shift to a bigger office unit.

The parts are easy to assemble even for a newbie like me (haha, seriously!). I did a quick browse through the user manuals on how to assemble and operate the vacuum cleaner. Easy and simple to understand instructions with proper pictorial guides and info is available. I like the built-in control buttons on the remote-control handle as they are within easy reach, which allows me to quickly turn the machine on and off and select the optimum suction power while continuing with my cleaning.

One of the annoying postpartum experiences for all mothers has got to be the hair loss which generally occurs around the third to fifth month post-birth. Just in case you are not aware, our youngest kiddo is 7 months old and I'm still losing hair although they are slowly getting lesser nowadays. So, I'm really impressed that the vacuum cleaner comes with the Anti-Tangle Tool which will not get clogged-up by hairs and/or pet hairs as the dirt goes directly into the dustbin. So, it ends up maintaining the optimum pick-up and cleaning performance and there's no wasting time to remove tangled hair by hand!

Another awesome feature of the vacuum cleaner is its 3-in-1 accessory pack which offers a choice of accessories to suit different cleaning needs (dusting tool, upholstery tool and crevice tool).

I like that the vacuum cleaner handle can be extended easily.

As for the Auto Cord Rewinder which can go up to 7m long, you just need to press a button to rewind it back to its docking port.

Now let's get to the yucky-eww-whoaaaa part of this review hahah... I'm bit hesitant to post the before pictures but it doesn't make sense to show awesome clean results without grossing you guys with the before conditions, right?

Let's start with what I thought was the cleanest part of our house - gulp... the STUDY ROOM. Reason being, this room has the most minimal number of toys, only 1 entry place which is well covered up with top to floor length curtains as a partitioning purpose, no windows (hence no dust blowing into the room). We had an Ikea rug on the floor as sometimes our kiddos like to sit on the floor to read books and play their small number of toys while I do some homework revision with our oldest kiddo and also help out with administrative works during month-end especially.

I happily turned on the vacuum cleaner and just focus on the rug area. I think I took about 5 minutes to vacuum the rug surface and was kinda grossed out when I see the dirt in the canister. And to think I actually vacuumed the study room a day before! I have no idea where all the dirt comes from but with the 2100W force to suck up the dirt, I'm really glad that we have the chance to review this vacuum cleaner! Goes to show that just because you don't see the dust doesn't mean that it's all clean!

I'm happy that the vacuum cleaner has an easy dustbin which is simple to remove and empty out. What I did to quickly detach it was just a push of a button, twist open the cover (left or right direction to lock or unlock), then tip the contents into the trashcan and then easily slide the dustbin back.

At this point, I'm actually dreading on the outcome of what might be sucked up from our BEDROOM. But review must continue, right? So here goes, the bedroom vacuum cleaning results. To be honest, I quickly did a quick vacuuming with our current vacuum cleaner to minimise my fright and yet... oh boy... look at those dirt and hair! Even though I have cut my hair to very very short (ear level) yet there is still hair being sucked up!

Samsung VC5100 Canister

Final test would definitely be our new office premise. We shifted to a 1400sq unit and it was previously unoccupied for about half year. The premise was however quite tidy so we hold off the vacuuming until we have installed a cassette air-conditioning unit (quite some drilling work done on the ceiling and wall) as well as moved in some new office tables and chairs. More dirt to suck out hahaha!

Pictures below were taken - to show before and after vacuuming process. The carpet floor looks brand new, really! I am so happy!

To sum up our review, we really love this vacuum cleaner!

Thank you Samsung for this opportunity to try out your awesome machine!

Product Review - Flipper Owl

~ Posted on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 12:56 AM ~

I have been cutting down on doing product reviews towards the last quarter of year 2016 to prepare for our coming 4th kiddo who was born in early November 2016 and I am now slowly resuming doing product reviews but prioritizing those that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)

However, as busy as I am with 4 kiddos, home cooking, taking care of hubby's administration site of the business and swamped up with managing my FB page and blog, I just can't say no to reviewing products that either myself and/or my family can use, so of course I gotta give this product a try! I was told that this is the latest series from Flipper, once that uses built-in sand timer, how intriguing! 

Extreme Colouring- Amazing World

Flipper Owl

About the company/brand:

"Flipper is a nifty toothbrush cover with a unique patented design. Through a cleverly-designed mechanism, a Flipper stores your toothbrush in an enclosed compartment and yet opens / closes automatically and conveniently. Flipper keeps your toothbrush easily and hygienically. With a properly-enclosed storage, Flipper protects your toothbrush from contamination by airborne bacteria, dust and other foreign particles that may cause oral diseases. Besides, it's simple, adorable and fun to use!"

I'm a full-time mummy

We received 3 packs of Flipper Owl series - Smarty, Hearty and Earthy. Brilliant bright engaging colors that catches the eye. Our older 3 kiddos quickly took turns choosing their own Flipper toothbrush cover.

Flipper Owl

Now you might think what is so special with this new Flipper series? It has built-in sand timer in it! Just gently rotate the owl's eyes and you can see the bright orange sand started trickling down and once it is done, you see the owl's orange beak materialising. So cute and creative!

Did you know most dentists agree that proper brushing should take at least 2 minutes? And hence Flipper OWL is designed with a 1-minute sand timer to make our brushing fantastically fun. What you need to do is rotate the owl's eyes twice for 2 minutes.

Flipper Owl

Design wise, like I mentioned earlier, the colors are bright and eye-catching. At the back of the high-quality BPA-free owl, you can see a dual suction cups that sticks firmly to your bathroom mirror or tiles. Sideway view, I believe the tiny little gap at the wings part is in such way so that it keeps your toothbrush properly ventilated as it air dries your toothbrush bristles.

Flipper Owl

Functionality wise? Our 3.5-year-old girl still needs a bit of a practise to rotate the owl's eyes (she's quite rough, and the OCD in me had to stop her from handling the owl roughly so I ended up rotating the eyes for her) but she pretty much can stick through 1-minute of brushing time. We are still trying to get her to brush for longer period.

Pictures below shows our 5.5-years-old girl during her turn to brush teeth. She finds is entertaining to watch as the sand trickles down and she said she likes seeing the owl's beak getting its' orange-y beak haha. Also the patented one-touch mechanism makes it easier for our kiddos to take out their toothbrush and store it back.

Flipper Owl

Pictures below shows our 8-years-old boy during his turn to brush teeth. He gently rotates the owl's eyes and dutifully waited for the timer to finish before rotating the owl's eyes for another time making it total 2 minutes of teeth brushing time. He said it is fun to look at the owl while he brushes his teeth.

Flipper Owl

A cute and fun way to instil good teeth brushing habits in our kiddos. Recommended!
