AIA's Letters for the Future

~ Posted on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 12:41 PM ~

As a mother of 3 kiddos, I'm constantly kept on my toes, from sun up to sun down, being a full-time mummy where I need to make sure kiddo is send to and from preK on time every week days, taking care and keeping our 2 girls busy when eldest is in preK, helping and guiding eldest with his homework, making sure clothes are all clean and ready, food are prepared and cooked for the family, on top of taking care of the administration part of hubby's business and lots more.

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but as we are constantly being distracted and kept busy with all these daily routines, I wonder how often do we just sit down and enjoy the precious moments we can have with our family and loved ones?

I came across this cool campaign by AIA, where we can write a message of love to our children! Awesome possum! I think this will be a fun thing to surprise our kiddos down the road, you know, a letter from the past by mummy or daddy dearest!

 

AIA's Letters for the Future Campaign

The campaign runs from 2nd September until 12 October 2014 and you can submit your letter online in English, Malay or Chinese. All entries must be completed and submitted through "Letters for the Future" (#lettersforthefuture) application which sits on AIA Bhd's Facebook Page or through the site http://lettersforthefuture.meltwaterrise.com/

The first 1000 entries will receive a beautiful time capsule and AIA will notify successful participants if their entry is successful.

One cool thing to note is for every letter received, AIA is pledging RM1 to the AIA Touching Lives Fund which was set up to help children born with cleft and congenital heart problems (#realcareneverstops). What a cool way to be writing down your loving letters to your kiddos and at the same time doing charity!

My Thoughts on Headphones

~ Posted on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 6:00 PM ~

I've seen my husband using quite a number of headphones over the past few years. Even so, they don't last for a long time and he is still looking for a good reliable one to use in his personal office room. In my personal opinion, the headphones that are out on the market should be designed to withstand the test of time as they are one of the most often use gadget at home nowadays.

Based on my research over the Internet, some of the tips for buying these gadgets include:

* What will you be using them for? Will it be for indoor use or you will be wearing them in outdoor as well?

* Do some research online as well as check out forums and asking around to get a sense for the price ranges on models that most appeal to your needs.

* Style as in do you like over-ear type (also called circumaural which cups over your ears, sealing in sound and muffling ambient noise) or on-ear type (also called supra-aural which are lighter and do not press on the sides of your head) or in-ear type? Some people may not be comfortable having the earbuds settled in their ears. If possible try out the different types to get a better feel.

* Noise cancellation feature should be considered especially if you plan to use for long commutes.

* Wireless feature is another feature to be considered for people who want flexibility and do a lot of listening on-the-go. It is now increasingly common and typically uses Radio Frequency, infrared or Bluetooth wireless technologies.

* The product brand and style is something you should look into as well if you are concerned with the reputation of the products you use.

Do you know that every year, 2 million children under the age of 5 die of infections like diarrhoea and pneumonia? That is quite a scary statistic! 2 million deaths in a year!! And do you know what is worse? What is worse is that a lot of these deaths can be prevented by the simple act of washing hands with soap. Yes, washing hands with soap!

Handwashing is an easy way to prevent infection and it is just like a DIY vaccine — it involves a few simple yet effective steps: Wet your hands, Lather the soap, Scrub your hands, Rinse your hands and finally Drying your hands.
