Setiap ‘Perkongsian’ Adalah Juadah Bagi Golongan Susah

SETIAP ‘PERKONGSIAN’ ADALAH JUADAH BAGI GOLONGAN SUSAH. Kempen Knorr Malaysia sempena Ramadhan memanfaatkan perkongsian Facebook dalam usaha untuk memberi makanan kepada insan lapar sepanjang bulan suci.



Knorr, salah satu jenama makanan terkemuka di Malaysia dan selurus dunia, melancarkan daya usaha untuk menyediakan makanan yang sedap dan lagi berkhasiat buat golongan yang tiada tempat tinggal dan golongan miskin sepanjang bulan Ramadhan.

Kempen ini bertujuan membangkitkan semangat beramal jariah orang ramai sepanjang bulan suci ini. Inilah bulannya pemberian zakat – salah satu daripada lima rukun Islam – ditunaikan. Juga dengan usaha ini diharapkan orang ramai sentiasa prihatin kepada golongan kurang beruntung, bukan
sahaja pada waktu berbuka puasa malah sebagai amalan penyucian kerohanian dalam melayari liku-liku kehidupan.

Jenama ini memanfaatkan Facebook, rangkaian media sosial yang popular ini bukan sahaja untuk membantu menyebarkan kesedaran terhadap ribuan insan miskin dan tanpa tempat berteduh yang tinggal di sekitar Kuala Lumpur sahaja, bahkan juga untuk sama-sama ‘turun padang’ menghulurkan pertolongan kepada yang memerlukan.

Dengan menukar butang “perkongsian” kepada mata wang, Knorr, dengan gandingan kerjasama Pertiwi, mengikrarkan satu hidangan makanan bagi setiap perkongsian filem iklan Ramadhan baharu terbitan mereka. Lebih banyak perkongsian bermakna lebih banyak hidangan makanan yang berkhasiat dan enak dapat diberi kepada golongan susah.

Menurut seorang wakil Unilever, “Knorr mempunyai pernyataan misi untuk membekalkan makanan yang sedap dan berzat untuk seluruh warga Malaysia. Selaras dengan janji ini, kami meletakkan sasaran untuk mengagihagihkan makanan yang sedap dan berzat kepada sekurang-kurangnya 1,000 orang warga kota yang tinggal di lorong-lorong Kuala Lumpur dan bahagian tengah bandar.”

Kempen “Janji Ramadhan” Knorr dipaparkan dalam sebuah video yang menceritakan perihal seorang bapa berjanji akan pulang untuk bersama anak lelakinya yang berbuka puasa kali pertama. Waktu berbuka puasa lazimnya dihargai sebagai waktu tak ternilai untuk merapatkan hubungan sesama ahliahli keluarga dan juga untuk meraikan tamatnya sehari suntuk berpuasa, inilah juga masanya keluarga berkumpul untuk merasai nikmat hidangan makanan dan berkongsi limpahan juadah daripada bulan suci ini.

“Sesuai dengan semangat Ramadhan, pihak kami menggalakkan rakyat Malaysia untuk ‘beramal’ dengan cara berkongsi ‘berkat’ dengan mereka yang kurang beruntung. Cuma klik untuk memberi satu hidangan makanan bagi seorang insan. Lebih banyak perkongsian yang kami terima, lebih ramailah insan yang dapat kami agihkan makanan,’ wakil Unilever menambah kata.

Untuk memudahkan pengagihan makanan, Knorr bekerjasama dengan Pertiwi, sebuah NGO yang memberi perkhidmatan kemanusiaan berupa bantuan makanan kepada golongan tanpa rumah dan komuniti dhaif yang menghuni bahagian tengah bandar. Pertubuhan ini dari semasa ke semasa mengagihkan makanan siap bungkus serta air minuman bersih kepada pelbagai kelompok penerima dalam Lembah Klang.

Dengan pimpinan dan panduan pihak Pertiwi, Knorr bersama-sama warga kerja kanan Unilever Malaysia akan mengotakan janji dan berkongsi limpahan rahmat Ramadhan pada 31 Mei, 7 Jun, 14 Jun dan 19 Jun.

NICKELODEON INVITES PRESCHOOLERS ALONG FOR THRILLING ADVENTURES WITH AN UNCONVENTIONAL PRINCESS IN NELLA THE PRINCESS KNIGHT, BRAND-NEW ANIMATED SERIES PREMIERING IN END-MAY


Preschoolers will set off on thrilling adventures in a kingdom far away where there lives a… Princess Knight! Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated preschool series, Nella the Princess Knight, follows Nella, an unconventional 8-year-old who possesses the royal qualities of a princess, like compassion and grace, while also embodying the courage and determination of a brave knight. Whenever a problem arises, Nella embarks on daring quests to save her kingdom through her unique ability to transform from a princess into Nella the Princess Knight. Nella the Princess Knight (40 half-hour episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum promoting self-confidence, inclusiveness and compassion for others. The series will premiere on the Nickelodeon channel on Monday, 29 May at
10am (MY), 9am (WIB) and 11.30am (PH); and on the Nick Jr. channel on Monday, 26 June at 9am (MY/WIB/PH).

Viewers can start visiting Nella the Princess Knight page on nickjr.tv to learn more about the show andits characters, and get a first look at the series.

Nella is a confident princess who likes dancing at extravagant balls just as much as she likes meeting firebreathingdragons. She transcends traditional roles and expectations through her ability to change into Nella the Princess Knight, protecting her kingdom with the help of her friends: Trinket, Nella’s glamorous unicorn and best friend; Sir Garrett, a loyal and adventurous knight; and Clod, Garrett’s trusty steed. 

In the series premiere, “Sir Clod/Up All Knight,” Clod loses his invitation to the Royal Cafe Breakfast Buffet and must find it by lunchtime or everyone misses out. Under Nella’s leadership, they braveGotcha Falls, dodge through a field of poppleberries and traverse the bubbly Sudsycano in order to find it. Also in the episode, a luminous phoenix shines brightly across the kingdom causing Blaine and the rest of Castlehaven to lose sleep. After the phoenix is locked up in the knight brigade tower, Nella must use her knightly skills to free the bird and convince everyone to come together as a group to solve their problem.

Robert Vargas (head writer, Zack and Quack) serves as an executive producer on Nella the Princess
Knight and the series is created by Christine Ricci (curriculum advisor, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Dora the Explorer). It is the newest show to join Nick’s top-ranked preschool roster, airing alongside hit series like PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines and Shimmer and Shine.

P&G Melancarkan ‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’

P&G, Izreen Azminda dan Food Aid Foundation Memanggil Rakyat Malaysia untuk Membawakan Perubahan yang Bermakna. P&G melancarkan ‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’, sebuah kempen seluruh negara bertujuan membantu ibu-ibu tunggal sempena kempen ulang tahun ke-30 P&G Malaysia – ‘P&G Malaysia Membalas Budi’. 


Procter and Gamble Malaysia (P&G) bersama pelakon dan hos televisyen Malaysia yang diminati ramai, Izreen Azminda serta Food Aid Foundation telah bekerja sama untuk melancarkan ‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’, sebuah kempen seluruh negara yang menggalakkan rakyat Malaysia untuk membantu mengurangkan beban para ibu tunggal semasa bulan Ramadhan ini dengan memberikan sumbangan barangan.

  

‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’ akan berlangsung dari 15 Mei sehingga 15 Jun di 50 buah cawangan pasar raya yang terlibat (Giant, Tesco, MYDIN dan AEON) di seluruh negara. Para pembeli yang membeli produk P&G bernilai RM30 atau lebih, bakal layak menerima sebuah 'Beg Hati'. Mereka kemudiannya digalakkan untuk mengisi beg tersebut atau mana-mana beg lain dengan barangan tak mudah rosak seperti makanan kering atau makanan tin, minyak masak atau sabun cuci, dan meletakkannya di kotak pengumpulan yang ditempatkan di cawangan-cawangan yang terlibat. Food Aid Foundation kemudiannya akan mengumpul barangan tersebut di akhir kempen ini dan mengagihkannya kepada para ibu tunggal di seluruh Malaysia.

“Sempena menyambut ulang tahun ke-30 P&G di Malaysia, kami telah memilih untuk memperbaiki kehidupan masyarakat bagi komuniti-komuniti yang memerlukan. Di P&G, kami percaya bahawa peluang untuk kita membawa perubahan dan berbuat baik kekal terbuka setiap hari. Kami telah membantu para ibu serta seisi rumah dari dahulu lagi dan kami percaya bahawa peranan seorang ibu dalam keluarga memerlukan kekuatan dan tidak boleh ditukar ganti. Kami berharap, menerusi kempen ini dan dengan bantuan seluruh rakyat Malaysia yang murah hati, kami dapat meringankan beban para ibu tunggal sepanjang musim perayaan ini,” kata Ong Yuh Hwang, Pengarah Pengurusan bagi P&G Malaysia, Singapura & Brunei semasa pelancaran ‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’.


Izreen Azminda, duta bagi kempen ‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’ P&G Malaysia berkata, “Sebagai seorang ibu tunggal, saya memahami cabaran yang dihadapi oleh ibu tunggal yang lain yang perlu menjadi pencari rezeki sambil menjadi penjaga utama buat keluarga. Sokongan dari keluarga dan rakan-rakan sememangnya memainkan peranan dalam menceriakan hidup kami terutamanya pada musim Raya di mana perbelanjaan sering kali lebih tinggi dari biasa. Saya bangga dapat menjadi sebahagian daripada kempen ini untuk memberi sokongan kepada suatu isu yang begitu bermakna buat saya.”

“Di Food Aid Foundation, kami percaya bahawa semua orang layak untuk mendapat makanan yang secukupnya. Ibu tunggal biasanya kurang diendahkan oleh masyarakat namun kami berharap, menerusi kempen ini, kami dapat mengetengahkan cabaran yang mereka hadapi setiap hari dan bekerjasama untuk meringankan beban mereka sempena bulan Raya ini,” kata Mohamad Faisal Ghazali, Pengasas bagi Food Aid Foundation, yang turut hadir pada majlis pelancaran tersebut.

P&G sedar akan kepentingan menjadi warganegara korporat yang baik, dan dengan itu, mereka berusaha untuk memastikan bahawa komuniti di mana P&G bertapak kekal kukuh dan berkembang. Selain daripada ‘Daripada Ibu Kepada Ibu’, P&G Malaysia bakal melakukan kerja-kerja amal yang lain sebagai sebahagian daripada kempen ‘P&G Malaysia Membalas Budi’ sepanjang tahun ini. Antara komuniti lain yang bakal dibantu termasuklah kanak-kanak Orang Asli, mangsa banjir, dan rakyat Malaysia yang sukar mendapat air minuman yang bersih dan selamat.

Neutrogena®’s Fashion Debut Celebrates The Joy of Healthy Skin

No. 1 dermatologist-recommended brand hits STYLO runway with Happy Skin 24/7 collection


Finally, a fashion that lasts for all seasons is here! Introducing Neutrogena® Happy Skin 24/7 fashion collection, a series of 30 designs presented at Mercedes-Benz STYLO AsiaFashionFestival (MBSTYLOAFF) 2017. Created by local fashion designers Kittie Yiyi and Hazzer Wan Lee, the Happy Skin 24/7 collection interprets the happy mood that one exudes with healthy, great-looking skin. 


According to Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies, which markets Neutrogena® in Malaysia, healthy, great-looking skin is one of the things that women derives joy. “As the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand, we believe beauty starts with healthy skin – a condition which gives women a lot of positive energy in their daily lives. Imagine looking into the mirror every morning to see healthy and radiant skin, wouldn’t your mood naturally lift and your day start better? Indeed, healthy skin has the power to make one happy and that’s why our latest campaign advocates Happy Skin 24/7 with Neutrogena®,” she said.

Teo added: “Through our fashion debut at Mercedes-Benz STYLO AsiaFashionFestival, we hope to demonstrate the inner-joy of having healthy, great-looking skin, a result of using Neutrogena® skincare, and share it with Malaysian women -- what better way to do this than to come up with a fashion collection, inspired by the concept of Happy Skin”! 

On the reason behind leveraging on fashion to express the essence of Neutrogena®’s latest campaign, Teo said, “It’s undeniable that women and fashion go hand in hand. Through our fashion collection, we want to tell every Malaysian woman that she can count on Neutrogena® to put her best face forward”.


Happy Skin is something that lasts through all seasons – it’s definitely not a fleeting trend. So we hope to show through our designer’s fashion collection that it’s possible to keep your skin healthy with Neutrogena®, look amazing and stay happy all the time!

We have tied up with Kittie Yiyi and Hazzer Wan Lee – two unique designers who draw their inspiration from things that intrigue them in creating interesting prints and colours! Thanks to their creativity and hard work, we will see how they bring the youthfulness and joy of Neutrogena®’s Happy Skin 24/7 concept to life tonight,” continued Teo.

Kittie Yiyi’s quirky sense of humour translates into her designs, which are often joyful and loud, yet smart. The Raffles Design Institute KL graduate’s motto is: “Whatever you decide to wear, make sure it makes you happy!”


Kittie’s collection is inspired by the quintessential beach girl on a holiday. Coming from a faraway beach land, she wanders into the city in her flowy, comfy loose-fitting outfits. Her happiness is infectious – and it shows in the way she dresses. Featuring flared silhouettes, ruffles, cheerful stripes and heart-shaped prints, the collection flaunts the beach girl’s confidence in her own skin with transparent details and cut-outs.

Hazzer Wan Lee, creative director of HWL by Hazzer Wan Lee Fashion Atelier Kuala Lumpur, graduated with a degree in Fashion and Apparel Design from Herriot-Watt University, Scotland.


Hazzer’s fashion collection is inspired by the water splash -- a signature of Neutrogena® Deep Clean range of cleansing products, and the first step to Happy Skin 24/7! Fluid lines and cascading layers come together to bring out the beauty and energy of water in hues of blue, green, orange and pink. The clever incorporation and layering techniques of different materials such as denim, organdy, PU leather, cotton silk and dyed fabrics results in a unique 3D effect that mimics the movements of water.

Sheila Majid Showcase at Belum Rainforest Resort

It was truly a magical evening on 29 April 2017 at Belum Rainforest Resort in Pulau Banding, Perak. Malaysian songbird, Sheila Majid, highly adored by music-lovers around the globe, crooned her fans in an exclusive showcase within an intimate setting of the luxury resort, set amidst the backdrop of one of the world’s oldest rainforests. 

Dato’ Sheila Majid concluded her showcase with a standing ovation at the Belum Rainforest Resort in support of her rainforest conservation efforts. 

Throughout her performance, which lasted a little more than one hour, Sheila presented some of her timeless classics including Lagenda and Sinaran, as well as numbers from her latest album, Boneka including numbers such as Kasih Abadi, Ku Nanti, and My All.

Guests to the resort were enthralled by the songstress’ soulful vocals amidst the luscious setting provided by Belum Rainforest Resort. The resort and the island on which it is located is surrounded by the 300,000 hectare Belum-Temengor Tropical Rainforest Complex, which is roughly four times the size of Singapore and carbon dated to be approximately 130 million years old – older than the Amazon and Congo! Truly the perfect setting for an enchanting evening indeed.

Besides providing a treat for Sheila Majid fans, the showcase also aims to highlight the importance of forest conservation, a cause deeply engrained into the corporate DNA of Belum Conservation, a subsidiary of the EMKAY Group, to preserve and protect its natural surroundings. 

Dato’ Sheila Majid and Dato’ Hajah Fazwinna presented Dr. Daniel Baskaran Krishnapillay, Technical Advisor of  Pulau Banding Foundation with a mock cheque for the Pulau Banding Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the Sheila Majid’s showcase was donated to the Pulau Banding Foundation, in support of Forest Conservation.

As such, a portion of the proceeds garnered from the showcase will be channelled towards the Pulau Banding Foundation, a non-profit and non-political organisation aimed at promoting research and eco-tourism through the sustainable development of the fragile ecosystems of the Belum-Temengor Rainforest Complex. A cheque from the showcase proceeds was presented by Sheila and Dato Fazwinna Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal, Executive Director of EMKAY Group to the foundation.

Dato’ Sheila Majid and family pledged their support for conservation through the planting of the Karas trees outside the Pulau Banding Research Centre. 

During her time at Belum, Sheila also took the opportunity to visit the Pulau Banding Rainforest Research Centre, which was set up by the Pulau Banding Foundation. The centre carries out research on flora and fauna of the Belum-Temengor Rainforest and disseminates the information and helps facilitate to make the area a sustainable and eco-tourism destination. There, she was brought on a tour of the place to learn more about the work done by the organisation before setting her mark through a tree planting session.

“Environmental and forest preservation is something I am really passionate about, and it is really heartening to see so much effort being done by organisations such as the Pulau Banding Foundation to preserve this amazing natural resource. The work they do is truly commendable and it is indeed an honour and a privilege for me to work together with the Pulau Banding Foundation, to help bolster their noble efforts. This is truly a breath taking venue and I couldn’t think of a better way to promote my latest album to the world, right here,” said Sheila Majid. 

“It is really an honour for us to have one of Malaysia’s most celebrated musical icons perform right here at Belum. And to have her do it in support of our efforts to preserve this rainforest is very praiseworthy and a humbling experience for us. We are truly indebted to her for making this dream a reality. True to the title of her song, she is undeniably a much-loved Malaysian legend,” said Ahmad Khalif bin Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal, Executive Director of Belum Conservation.

Dato’ Sheila Majid posed for a photo with the orang asli teachers and children from Kampung Semelor at the i-Play Toy Library.

She also took the opportunity to pay a visit to Kampung Semelor, an Orang Asli settlement situated within the Temengor forest, to learn more about life in the heart of the rainforest. She visited the i-Play Toy Library, which was set up in 2008 by Yayasan Emkay for orang asli children to have the opportunity to be exposed to education through play, as well as visit the Orang Asli women’s sewing class and handicraft making center. The Kampung Semelor Toy Library is one of the first of five facilities set up for the Orang Asli community within the Belum-Temengor area, which promotes the children’s development and skills. The Women’s sewing workshop is part of the Orang Asli Educational Program and is in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resource. 

Ever since making her debut in 1985 with her album Dimensi Baru, Sheila Majid has evolved into an illustrious career, making her mark not only in Asia but around the world as well, with a series of international firsts. In 1990, she was the first Malaysian artist to break into Japan with her albums Emosi and Warna, as well with her hugely popular single, Sinaran. Six years later, she once again made history by becoming the first Malaysian artist to stage a solo show in London’s famed West End, at the Royalty Theatre. In December 1996, she accepted an invitation to perform at Ronnie Scotts’, the jazz Mecca of the Music world.

A Love Affair with Coffee

Seth Drury is an Australian singer, dancer and actor. A former Australian Idol contestant, he has appeared in various productions in Australia and South East Asia.


ZooMoo Networks, the only channel devoted to educating kids about nature and animals is premiering its latest original series – ZooMoo Groove. This fun sing-along series introduces kids to animals in each of the world’s habitats while encouraging kids to get up and sing and dance.

“Children love to be able to express themselves through song and dance, and with ZooMoo Groove, they can also enjoy learning about the world we live in at the same time.  We are also excited to introduce our new talent Seth Drury to our audience as our trusted ZooMoo Ranger,” said Catherine Nebauer, General Manager of ZooMoo Networks, Asia Pacific.

Concept behind ZooMoo Groove


ZooMoo Groove is themed around exploration and discovery, providing children with an opportunity to visit the eight habitats of the world. The series introduces our fun and quirky Zoomer characters that live on ZooMoo Island. Each character has a distinct personality and ZooMoo Ranger Seth helps them find the habitat they will be most compatible to live in. 


Seth Drury is an Australian singer, dancer, and actor. A former Australian Idol contestant, Seth has appeared in various productions in Australia and throughout South East Asia, as well as devised a one-man show at the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival to sell out audiences.

Global Brand Ambassador for NEUTROGENA® | Welcome Nicole Kidman

Worldwide premium skincare brand NEUTROGENA® has recently announced Academy Award-winning actress, activist for women’s cancer research and Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, Nicole Kidman as its latest Global Brand Ambassador.


According to Cory Price, General Manager of NEUTROGENA® at Johnson & Johnson US, “Nicole embodies the true spirit of the women that we are committed to everyday. Their passion, strength and focus are what makes NEUTROGENA® women so special. Nicole will help us encourage women to embrace their beauty through the lens of skin health and empower women to see what’s possible with NEUTROGENA®”.

In Malaysia, NEUTROGENA® is known for its wide array of skin health-focused products starting from cleansers, hydration serum and masks to sun protection lotions.

“We are pleased that a Hollywood big name like Nicole Kidman has become our global brand ambassador. Besides keeping the NEUTROGENA® brand top of mind when it comes to beauty, Nicole will serve as an aspiration for our local consumers who appreciate healthy and beautiful skin,” said Raghu Krishnan, Country Director, Consumer, Johnson & Johnson Malaysia.

Nicole Kidman, Australian actress and NEUTROGENA® Ambassador, comments: “The world works in mysterious ways! As you probably know, I grew up in Australia where sun protection is everything – from the time I was a little girl, my mum taught me to protect my skin from the sun. So looking after the health of my skin is something I’ve grown up understanding. But as times passes, I’ve realised that, sun protection has become just part of the story…I’ve learned that your skin needs a lot of attention and support, just like the rest of your body in order to keep it its healthiest.”

“So when I had the opportunity to partner with NEUTROGENA®, a brand that has skin health at the core of who they are, it was like the stars were aligning for me.”

“Right now I can honestly say I am loving life more than ever, so my overall health, including the health of my skin is a top priority. Look, the reality is, we all know choosing the right anti-ageing product is trial and error, hit or miss, some things work and some don’t. But at this point in my life I am looking for something that simply works, that’s why I am really excited to join this passionate and dedicated team. I am also extremely proud to be joining a strong and inspiring group of NEUTROGENA® women who are already a part of the family.”

In January of 2006, Kidman was named, and continues to serve, as Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, whose goals are to foster women’s empowerment and gender equality, to raise awareness of the infringement on women’s human rights around the world and to end violence against women.

She is also an activist in supporting research of women’s cancer. Along with her husband, Keith Urban, she helped raise nearly half a million dollars for the Women’s Cancer Program, a world-renowned centre for research into the causes, treatment, prevention, and eventual cure of women’s cancer.

Presently, Kidman can be seen on the big screen in The Weinstein Company’s Lion for which she has received Critics’ Choice, Golden Globe, SAG Awards and Academy Award nominations. She will next be seen in the upcoming films How to Talk to Girls at Parties and The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.  On the small screen, Kidman returns to television this month in the limited series Big Little Lies for HBO as well as the second season of Top of The Lake (SundanceTV/BBC Two).

Kidman joins NEUTROGENA® Brand Ambassadors Rachael Taylor, Jennifer Garner, Kerry Washington, Julie Bowen, Kristen Bell, Eiza Gonzalez, Sandra Echeverria, Hayden Panettiere and Olivia Holt.
