Calpis’ First Ever User Generated Video Allows Malaysians To Express Their Creativity

Calpis rewards the winners of its Instagram Reels Contest by featuring them in an edgy and fun lifestyle video

Giving Malaysians the opportunity to showcase their exemplary dance talent from the safety of their homes, Calpis, Japan’s first cultured milk drink, launched an Instagram Reels Contest in August. As the contest comes to an end, Calpis has picked winners from the Instagram Reels Contest and featured their creative talent in the brand’s first user generated video, launched on 11th of October 2021.

The peppy and uplifting video created by the brand will not only get netizens to groove to the beat but also includes messaging around maintaining good digestive health set to the background music of Calpis’s classic brand tune. 

With the pandemic taking a toll on our overall well-being, the call to spread positivity and to motivate netizens to take good care of their health, including digestive health, is important. Recognising this, the Calpis Instagram Reels contest motivated Malaysians to get up and shake, be creative and acquire a chance to stardom by being a part of the Calpis feature video, all from the safety of their own homes.

“At Calpis, we are always looking for creative ways to engage with our consumers. Considering current circumstances, we needed to reinforce the messaging around good digestive health by encouraging our consumers to channel their creative goodness within through our digital contest. However, instead of just announcing the winners, we wanted to take this campaign one step further by creating the first ever user generated feature video for Calpis. This was, of course, made easy by the amazing entries we received and we thank all the participants for their enthusiasm and trust for the Calpis brand,” said Yee Pek Kuan, Vice President of Marketing at Etika Sdn. Bhd.

To participate in the Calpis Instagram Reels contest, all participants had to do was to create a short and catchy video featuring a Calpis product of any variant namely Original, Mango, Strawberry or Grape and their best dancing skills. The contest ran from 9 August to 5 September 2021.

From the contest submissions, Calpis picked 3 grand prize winners and 14 weekly winners in total. Other than being superstars in the Calpis feature video, the grand prize winners walked away with RM3,000 cash and 1 carton of Calpis 350ml while the weekly winners took home RM500 cash and 1 carton of Calpis 350ml.

Kalnish Kashna Schubert from Selangor has been a loyal customer of Calpis and when she saw the contest, she decided to join without any second thoughts. Her creative dance steps won her the honour of being crowned as one of the grand winners by Calpis.

Zack Ng Chun Ket from Sabah, another grand prize winner from Sabah said, “I am surprised and honoured to be one of the grand prize winners. I have never participated in any competition like this before and winning this award certainly shows that I can groove to the beat!”

Thong Chan Hin from Penang, another grand prize winner who randomly joined the competition to challenge himself and have some fun was also surprised to be one of the winners. He said, “I am very surprised and happy about this success. I'm grateful Calpis Malaysia enjoyed my video and pick me as one of the Grand Prize winners.” He is thankful as the contest gave him a chance to show his talents and he hopes that Calpis fans will continue to support the brand to have a healthier and energetic lifestyle.

“We hope that through this feature video, we can get Malaysians to get up and move and take good care of their health as we move towards a more hopeful future,” echoed Pek Kuan.

How to #JomBalikSekolah, and stay safe online

A nationwide study by Universiti Malaya shows that over three quarters of Malaysian students, who have been away from classrooms for almost 35 weeks, are eager for physical classes to resume this months.

The Ministry of Education announced that schools are reopening in stages for states under phase 3 and 4 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP). This means majority of the schools may only open on rotational basis, with classes split into two groups attending on alternate weeks. The ministry explained students will take turns to attend school, with attendance set at 50 percent of the classroom capacity to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

During the home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) period, Kaspersky has detected 28.9 million different internet-borne cyberthreats in the period of April till June 2021 in Malaysia. Two methods widely used by cybercriminals for web threats include exploiting vulnerabilities in browsers and their plugins and the infamous tactic of social engineering.

“As we cautiously try to revert back to face-to-face classes, it is understandable that online sessions will remain at least for a few more months. We advise the teachers, parents and students to continue their cyber resilience against threats online – from simple spam and phishing to the damaging ones like ransomware. Cybersecurity Malaysia just shared that there was 58 cases of ransomware reported as of August this year. We should keep our guards up so we can be safe physically and virtually,” says Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky.

Kaspersky has the following tips to help teachers on how to make remote learning as convenient as possible:
  • Learn about the tools you will be using. Selecting the tools you will use to conduct your online classes – the video conferencing platform, testing service, messaging app etc. You can get to know their capabilities and features as well as you can by reading through the instructions, learning the interface, and searching online for configuration guides.
  • Limit your tools. The school may have access to a very large number of services, choose only the ones you need.
  • Set a unique password for each service. If someone manages to crack your password for one of the services you are using, then you have a problem. Set unique password for every account.
  • Develop a code of conduct for your classes. Preferably set in writing.
  • Agree on backup channels. To avoid video conference apps glitch, figure out in advance which service your class will use if the default one is not working.
  • Guard your educational accounts. Besides students interested in accessing your accounts to altering grades, an attacker who gains access to your account can also obtain the personal data of the class, which could lead to legal consequences.
  • Understand how to recognize phishing e-mails. Cybercriminals are interested to steal your account credentials. It is important to know how to distinguish phishing attempts from official mailings.
  • Protect devices. Install reliable protection on every device you use to access educational resources.

Here are the essential tips for parents that never run out of fashion:
  • Talk to your children about the potential dangers that they may face online.
  • Move their computers to a common family room if possible.
  • Try to make the computer a shared family experience.
  • Encourage your children to talk to you about anything they experience online that upsets them or makes them feel uncomfortable.
  • Restrict the content that can accessed via the computer, Kaspersky Internet Security can help you do that.
  • Provide guidelines that let your children know what they can and can not do on the internet, such as make online purchases, download music, video, usage of chatroom etc
  • Download and install the latest security patches and updates for all your devices.
  • Install a rigorous antivirus product that is capable of defending all of your family’s computers and mobile devices against malicious programs and hackers.

Award-Winning Director Joe Wright Partners With Samsung to Unveil a New Film Captured on Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

Aimed at inspiring budding creators to bring their own stories to life, Filmed #withGalaxy is a new content series featuring films from the world’s best directors

Samsung Electronics today announced a partnership with some of the world’s most renowned filmmakers to encourage everyone to let their creativity run free with Galaxy.

Capturing Magic #withGalaxy
To kick off the campaign, world-renowned director Joe Wright known for Pride and Prejudice and Atonement partnered with Samsung to create Princess & Peppernose, the tale of a princess in search of love who defies convention to pursue her own desires. The heartwarming musical uses puppetry and live-action choreography to tell a unique story captured entirely with a Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G smartphone.

“My parents ran and founded the first dedicated puppet theater in the UK, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get back to my roots,” Wright said. “What surprised me the most throughout this process was how quick and easy it was to get right in there and be present with the characters and the story. The camera is always ready, and all you need to do is point and shoot.”

During the creation of Princess & Peppernose, Wright and his crew took full advantage of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G’s 13mm Ultra-Wide lens to capture the full view of every scene.

“We chose to embrace the wider lens, something we’d never done before,” a cinematographer said. “Moving in for close-ups with the same lens we used for wider shots gave the film a very specific look and feel, a kind of ghostly, hallucinatory quality and took us back to the times shooting with a Super8.”

Fans can find an official trailer below: 

Celebrating Stories From Around the World, Filmed #withGalaxy
Following Wright’s film, Samsung will release additional Filmed #withGalaxy stories from respected directors around the world, including China’s up-and-coming director Sha Mo, known for Love Will Tear Us Apart and My Huckleberry Friends.

Sha Mo used the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G to capture footage for his new film Kids of Paradise, a poetic look at conflicts between children in a small school by the countryside. To capture the story, Sha Mo relied on Director’s Mode of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G to record three different shots at once for an intuitive, almost professional-like filming experience.

“Working with Samsung, I discovered that anyone with a desire to express themselves or tell a story already has the equipment needed in their hand,” Sha Mo said. “The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G allowed me to capture angles and movements that I simply can’t get with a larger camera. Once I started filming, I was so excited to discover the story and the characters that I almost forgot I was shooting with a mobile device and the ideas just kept flowing.”

Princess & Peppernose and Kids of Paradise will be unveiled at the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in October.

“Filming is one of the most powerful storytelling tools, and one of the best ways to connect emotionally with your audience,” said Stephanie Choi, Head of Marketing for Samsung Electronics’ Mobile Communications Business. “With this series, we want to show people that they really don’t need fancy studio equipment or big budgets to create amazing films — all they need is a little imagination and the Galaxy device in their pocket.”

Stay tuned for more exciting content from some of the world’s best filmmakers and learn how to use these same tricks to get your own story out there.

Neymar Jr’s Off-Pitch Style Gets A Wild New Look

PUMA surprises with a new style to its popular Rider franchise, the Wild Rider. Neymar Jr’s favorite new shoe off-pitch was inspired by the movement and motion of city life.

PUMA ambassador Neymar Jr. is always pushing himself forward, making the Wild Rider the perfect shoe for his first major lifestyle campaign with PUMA. Not only is he known for his accolades on the pitch, but his style off the pitch also draws a lot of interest. As someone who is changing the game, he embodies the theme of the shoe, made to celebrate youth culture and mobility.

“As someone who loves streetwear, I was thrilled when PUMA approached me about being the face of a shoe outside of football,” said Neymar Jr. “You won’t take the Wild Rider off; I’ve been wearing it non-stop. É o meu favorito!”

This Wild Rider brings a whole new dimension to the Rider family, with fresh layers of material and futuristic circles at the midsole. Its premium design is inspired by the movement and motion of city life – always going forward, further, faster, and beyond.

“We consider the Rider family to be very much a constant evolving conversation; what started the Future Rider, which was very much linked to the Easy Rider II, has progressed into something that can stand on its own without being too obvious to the original inspiration,” says Danny Taylor, Design Lead Sportstyle Footwear. “With each release we are able to push the Rider product language forward, constantly evolving it season by season.”

The Wild Rider continues to play with PUMA’s futro design language. Taking archive inspiration from the Rider OG and elements from a 90’s track spike, the design is a ‘collage’ of past and future melted together. The progressive design language of the Wild Rider includes unique design finishes like a formstrip that flows into a heel pull, “Designed by PUMA” emblazoned across the back, and the back of heel also juts out from a futro inspired accent, further playing on the idea of motion that serves as inspiration for the shoe. This drop features a nylon upper with suede overlays and a leather formstrip, along with TPU details on eyelet and heel and the signature Rider foam.

The Wild Rider is now available at, PUMA stores, JD Sports and Lazada, retailing from RM509 to RM 599. However, for a limited time only from 25th October to 10th November, a special 30% off will be happening exclusively on and Lazada for selected Wild Rider Collection items – so keep an eye out for it!

Mr Kazuo Mabuchi
“Staff at all our centers have come into contact with people who are COVID-19 positive, or lost someone they know to this disease. We are at risk every day, with only full vaccination and adherence to the SOPs keeping us safe. It feels good to be seen, recognised and appreciated by TOP.

In the spirit of #KitaJagaKita, we are making it through this difficult time together,” Mabuchi said in closing.

PUBG MOBILE Brings Back Vikendi Snow Map

Reunion: Classics Encore, the return of seven fan-favorite modes for a limited time

PUBG MOBILE brings back Vikendi, the first snow map in this battle royale game that most fans and community are longing for. Apart from Vikendi, a total of seven favorite and best game modes will make its comeback into the game, including the Metro Royale: Reunion, Titans: Last Stand, Survive Till Dawn, Payload 2.0, Runic Power, and Infection Mode. Vikendi was removed from PUBG MOBILE on April 7, 2021, with the release of Karakin map.

PUBG MOBILE players can now reminisce the following seven classic modes that will be brought back into the game:

After a long absence, the snow-covered battlefield has returned. The Vikendi map was first launched in 2018, offering a snowy map measuring 6 km X 6 km. Known as an isolated northern resort island in the Adriatic sea, Vikendi has a fairly high level hazard with extreme weather and heavy snow where blizzards can hit at any time.

Vikendi also introduced an exclusive snow vehicle, the Snowmobile, which players can use to dodge bullets or even race and drift for fun, as well as a weapon finish upgrade system, from looks to special effects that cope with Vikendi's temperature and atmosphere.

As for battle strategy, players will need to remember to cover their footprint so that the enemy can’t track their location. Players will also need to equip themselves with tools that guarantee an adequate level of concealment. Such as, Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, and Designated Marksman Rifles would be the most suitable choices in the Vikendi terrain. On the other hand, Goroka, Dobro Mesto, Castle, Cosmodrome, Volnova, Villa, and Dino Park are player's most favorite loot areas, so players will need to prepare themselves if they want to jump in those areas.

Metro Royale: Reunion
Experience tense battles in dangerous underground tunnels against bandits to ferocious mutants hiding in the shadows of darkness. To support intense battles, PUBG MOBILE has added a variety of tactical equipment in this mode, ranging from a thermal radar that can track body heat, goggles and night scopes to target enemies in the dark, various kinds of customizable armor attachments, grenade launchers that can be used to attack enemies in the dark, thick armor up to the Tikhar Rifle, a unique and silent air rifle.

Titans: Last Stand
PUBG MOBILE's collaboration with the phenomenal box office film, Godzilla Vs Kong, is back. PUBG MOBILE invites players to join hands with the Monarch expedition team to defeat Mechagodzilla. Search for the godzilla Crates available on board and find the M249 and RPG-7 heavy guns with unlimited ammo to knock out Titans over 10-meters in size. Players will not be alone, Godzilla and Kong will appear to help.

Survive Till Dawn
One of the most unique gameplay, Survive Till Dawn, is brought back this time. In this game mode, a swarm of zombies will start to appear and players will need to be ready to attack when the sun no longer sets. Players will experience survival until the allotted time by killing as many zombies as possible to get useful items and survive.

Payload 2.0
Get ready to "Rock and Load”, with the return of Payload 2.0 mode from 15 October 2021. Payload 2.0 provides a more intense, challenging, and exciting combat experience. Introduced two years ago, payload has become one of the most popular modes among PUBG MOBILE players. The game mode offers a new way of fighting, where players can use various kinds of powerful vehicles equipped with super weapons that have tremendous destructive power.

Runic Power
Runic Power mode brings back a unique experience of combat in Erangel. Players can pick one between three rune energies that will give players an elemental power as well as active and passive abilities. Firstly, the Flame Rune where players can summon a wheel of flame that rolls forward slowly, dealing burn damage to enemy players it touches. Meanwhile, with Arctic Rune, players can summon 3x3 ice walls for protection in the middle of battle. Finally, the Wind Rune, where players get the power of wind, can create a semi-transparent wind shield that reduces bullet damage from weapons fired from outside.

Infection Mode
In this mode, players will be divided into two teams that are randomly divided to 5 players each, whether they will be a Zombies team or a Defenders team. In order to win this match, the Zombies team must be able to infect the entire Defenders team before the time limit runs out. On the other hand, for the Defenders team who can survive not being infected, even if only one person lives until the time limit runs out, they will be granted with a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.

Play your favourite game mode now and stay tuned for other classic modes that will return to PUBG MOBILE.

Here’s Why You Need to Add Steam Cleaning to Your Laundry Routine

The importance of home appliances has progressed over the years with increasing consumer spending on clothing [1]. Nowadays, we are looking for a more convenient alternative to using compact garment steamers that will help us with pollutant-free clothes.

Silk, cotton, batik - the yards of fabrics to choose from is overwhelming these days. The afterthought of splurging on clothes would be to think of ways to care for each article of garment especially when it comes to gentle care for the clothes you love. There is a way to gently care for your laundry and sanitise clothing efficiently while removing bacteria and allergen. How? Keep reading and you’ll find out!

Laundry care has not been the most talked about topic among Malaysians and yet it is one of the essential things we do at home — but how does being able to dry-clean your clothes at home sound? From virtually working to socially meeting online — people are beginning to dress up for any virtual sessions and wear all the clothes they missed out on wearing in the last year, even if it is just at home.

With the conventional wisdom that we all have, we would send our clothes to the dry-cleaners when we are allowed to and make sure our clothes look spiffy. However, with constant technological advancement, there's a new breed of high-tech smart wardrobe on the market. One that does not only stores, but dry cleans clothing. Who knew we could now own such a capable, advanced wardrobe?

Not going to lie, we’ve never imagined that we would see a wardrobe like this. But with where technology is now, almost anything is possible. The brand-new LG Styler™ is the smart wardrobe helps with steam cleaning. Here’s why:

Hygienic Without Chemicals
Adequate sanitisation for our clothes and surrounding has become a necessity in every Malaysian household to maintain optimal hygiene. The demand for hygienic solutions has also increased. Keeping in mind that clothing is something we wear daily, it is also important to make sure that it isn’t exposed any possible microscopic airborne particles such as allergens, bacteria, and viruses. But we are wary of the chemicals we use to achieve that as they may not be good for overall health and the environment too.

In comes the LG Styler™. Its TrueSteam™ technology sanitises clothing and fabrics with 100% water and eliminates 99.9% allergens, bacteria, and viruses. This innovative smart wardrobe can also help sanitise bedding and children’s soft toys. For some of us who don’t have the time for laundry, the LG Styler™ also offers a “refresh cycle” option that spruces and gives a makeover to any of your favourite suits or gowns in just 20 minutes.

Prolongs Clothes’ Lifespan
Want a wardrobe even Bernard Chandran himself would envy? We sometimes hold sentimental value to our clothes and cherish them for various reasons. We would pay extra attention to laundry care, which results in higher spending on dry-cleaning. Having something that can both keep our clothes hygienic, clean and prolonging their lifespan while fitting in perfectly with our home interior is a difficult task. What if there’s a solution that kills two birds with one stone?

The LG Styler™ would not only give you a 21st century modern design and finish, but it also allows professional-level care for your clothes at home. The added bonus would be that you can now wear whichever outfit you want at any time without having to drop by the dry cleaners. Its sleek and stylish design truly enhances your home interior while its practical functions deliver a dry-cleaning session at home.

Quality Clothing Care
The general move away from fast fashion has been a catalyst of the “quality over quantity” school of thought when it comes to style. Malaysians are shifting towards shopping cautiously for better quality clothing, and these items may need better care.

With the heat pump system, the LG Styler™ has a low-temperature drying system that dries clothing faster than air drying. Clothes and fashion lover can now gently dry clothes that require special care without worrying about shrinkage or damage caused by heat with regular dryers. Care for suits, dresses, sweaters, and other delicate pieces of clothing becomes easier and more convenient. The LG Styler™ is also equipped with the Special Care mode that has tailor-made cycles for your clothing and customises every step of the laundry process to make sure your clothing stays new and prolong their lifespan.

Perfect for a Family
Every appliance in the home of a family has a singular goal of catering to the needs of each family member. When purchasing home appliances, our parents often look at the practicality of things. For the LG Styler™, practicality works like a charm because it is not only catered to fashion lovers, but working adults, children, athletes or pet owners. If your family members are one or all of the mentioned, the LG Styler™ has got you.

The smart wardrobe is built to fit in up to three pieces of clothing and 1 pair of pants; it comes with the Moving Hanger that removes fine dust particles and allergens, wrinkles as well as odour in clothes with low noise operation at 41dB and 200 vibrations per minute, leaving them fresh as daisies! The LG Styler™ also dehumidifies closets and indoor spaces to keep the surrounding atmosphere refreshed. What’s more, it has an anti-wrinkle pants press hanger by the door, and a versatile rack for a variety of clothing. Whether it's a suit, school uniform, baju kurung, towel, pillow, or a favourite stuffed toy, rest assured that the LG Styler™ will give you and your family the ultimate clothing or any fabric sanitisation and cleaning experience.

Remote Monitoring
Busy at work and you need to make sure you have something to wear the next day? As we work longer hours at home, it would be an added advantage to be able to have a smart wardrobe that we can keep track of remotely.

The LG ThinQ™ technology is embedded in the LG Styler™ that helps to operate or monitor your precious garments from anywhere, anytime. Through Wi-Fi connectivity and the LG ThinQ™ app, you can control, track energy consumption, or use Cycle Download to add newly developed care cycles. The app will also alert you when your garments are clean and ready to wear. One click of a button on your smart and all these can be done! Technology, am I right?

If we were to tell our parents or grandparents 10 years back that we now have smart wardrobes like this, they would call us crazy. As we pay more and more attention to the care and hygiene of the clothes we wear, the bed sheets we sleep on and even the bantal busuk that we absolutely have to hug to sleep every night, we also need a versatile appliance that could help sanitise them. Having a home appliance that does that is most definitely an investment. Just think about how much it adds value to you and your family!

9 out of 10 middle-aged Malaysians concerned about bone health and how it may affect strength and mobility in their silver years

No comments
Anlene to educate Malaysians on bone care in conjunction with World Osteoporosis Day

In a recent survey conducted among Malaysians aged 40 to 59 years, it was found that 95% of respondents are concerned about their bone health and how it may affect their strength and mobility when they are older. The top three contributing factors they cited for their concerns are lack of exercise, insufficient exposure to sunlight (for production of vitamin D in the body to aid calcium absorption), and avoiding dairy products (which are daily sources of calcium) in their diet.

Findings from the survey also indicated, while middle-aged Malaysians understand the importance of having strong bones, 42% say their current focus is to protect themselves from getting COVID-19; and 33% say they are already doing their best for their health including bone health.

The survey was initiated by Anlene, Malaysia’s No. 1 Adult Milk Powder* and an advocate of strong bones, joints and muscles through good nutrition coupled with an active lifestyle. It was conducted blindly earlier in August among 320 middle-aged respondents to gain insights into their awareness of and viewpoint towards bone care and health in general.

“From their responses, we found there are still gaps in their understanding of bone health, especially when it comes to areas of bone care and whether they are doing enough to support their bones, which work together with joints and muscles to help us move and live our daily lives,” said Puan Megawati Suzari, Director of New Product Development, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs at Fonterra Brands Malaysia.

To help Malaysians understand bone health better and to encourage them to pay more attention to care for their bones, Anlene is launching an educational campaign in conjunction with World Osteoporosis Day 2021, which falls on 20 October annually. The campaign will highlight how our bones may start to deteriorate after they reach peak bone mass at about the age of 30 [1], which makes it necessary for everyone to make lifestyle interventions to help slow down this process, so our bones can continue to support an active lifestyle with good mobility into the silver years [2].

Megawati advised: “Malaysian adults can take care of their bone health by doing regular exercises to help build muscles and maintain strong bones; and eating a balanced diet that contains important nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D and protein. Maintaining body weight within a normal range of body mass index is also important, as being underweight (Body Mass Index of less than 19kg/m2) may affect our bones.

Interestingly, Anlene’s survey also found that 30% of the respondents do not know how much calcium and vitamin D to take daily; and only 30% of the respondents drink milk every day.

To this, Megawati further explained: “Adults are advised to consume 1000 – 1200mg of calcium and 15 – 20mcg of vitamin D in a day, as part of their daily bone care routine. However, many are not aware that, in a typical diet that is lacking in calcium rich foods, it may be difficult for us to meet our daily calcium needs. For example, we may need to consume 200 – 240 bowls of cooked rice to get all the daily calcium we need.

Hence, identifying and consuming calcium rich food sources are important part of a balanced diet. In fact, calcium can be found in food sources such as milk, leafy green vegetables, anchovies, soy products or other calcium fortified products. While vitamin D can be found in fatty fish (e.g. salmon, sardine), egg yolk and vitamin D fortified products including milk.”

She added: “As such, we encourage all adults to make smart food choices and consume a balanced diet which consist of milk. Milk products that contains key nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D and protein can help to meet their daily nutritional needs”.

For example, each glass of Anlene™ milk comes with key nutrients that are important to support adults’ daily nutritional needs. The ACTIFIT 3X™ range comes with high calcium, high protein, collagen, and vitamins B2, B6, B12, C, D, and E. While Anlene™ GOLD 5X™ is scientifically formulated for adults aged 45 years and above, with key nutrients as above, plus MFGM Active™, that provides milk fat globule membrane. It also has no added sugars.

Recent study [3] shows that participants who consumed 2 glasses of milk added with MFGM (Milk Fat Globule Membrane) and important nutrients plus regular exercises everyday, had 2 times the improvement in flexibility, 3 times the improvement in balance and 40% more improvement in muscle mass compared to control.

Speaking in a TV talk show as part of Anlene’s World Osteoporosis Day campaign, Associate Professor Dr Nor Faissal Yasin, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, University Malaya Medical Centre and UM Specialist Centre, advised Malaysian adults to look at risks of developing bone related diseases, such as osteoporosis which may affect nearly 1 in 4 Malaysian adults (mostly women) aged 50 years and above [4].

“Osteoporosis is a silent disease which is often diagnosed when a fragility fracture occurs, commonly in the wrist, hip or back bones. Its risk factors include a diet low in calcium and vitamin D, lack of physical activity, underweight, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, advanced age, as well as family history,” said Dr Nor Faissal.

“Middle-aged adults should take bone care seriously. Prevention of getting osteoporosis is a lifelong journey, which can be started by adopting good lifestyle habits including good dietary practices and stay physically active by moving more throughout the day. Besides, Malaysians 60 years and above are also recommended to consult a healthcare professional to assess their bone health annually,” he advised.

Say Hello to SKIDOO Malaysia, the newly launched delivery service offering competitive pricing and top-notch customer service!

First stop: Kuala Lumpur

[L-R] Asokan Raveindaran, Chief Executive Officer and (R) Noor Habiba Mohamed Sirajudeen, Chief Financial Officer of SKIDOO Malaysia

On-demand delivery has been a staple for Malaysians for a long time, and the pandemic in its many forms has accelerated the growing need of better, more efficient delivery services in the country. Enter SKIDOO, a budding delivery service providing a plethora of transfers for business, moving, food and personal parcels - all within affordable price points and the best interest of customers in mind.

SKIDOO Malaysia was officially launched by Yang Berhormat Tuan Ahmad Fahmi Fadzil, Member of Parliament (MP) of Lembah Pantai. “As we move towards returning to normalcy, one thing is clear; delivery services will continue to be sought-after by Malaysians and I am happy to see such a service born here in the area. We need more local entrepreneurs and businesses to grow, especially with the surge in online shopping in Malaysia. SKIDOO not only addresses the needs of the market today, but also opens the door for job opportunities to people looking to rebuild their lives,” he said at the launch event.

SKIDOO takes pride in their elevated service and care for customer’s goods, high standards for customer service as well as competitive pricing. SKIDOO’s services are 40% cheaper than most of the courier services in the country with no hidden charges and ensures that customers do not feel burdened by heavy delivery costs. The team at SKIDOO also assure customers of their quality customer service. By simply texting the WhatsApp number or through a direct call to SKIDOO for any queries or issues, the team will be able to offer on-the-spot solutions.

Asokan Raveindaran, Chief Executive Officer of SKIDOO Malaysia said, “We started this delivery service company as we realised there is a gap in affordable, good point-to-point delivery service. SKIDOO operates on the human business model, where customers get the best in pricing, experience and overall service. We’re born out of the need of the community, and it is also where the community delivers back.”

[L-R] Asokan Raveindaran, CEO of SKIDOO with YB Fahmi Fadzil, MP of Lembah Pantai

At the moment, customers can choose their preferred delivery vehicles ranging from motorcycles, cars, vans, 4x4 pickup, 1-ton lorry, 3-ton lorry and 5-ton lorry. SKIDOO is based in Kuala Lumpur, with plans for expansion to Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur and Selangor) in the coming months.

Aligned with its goal to grow, SKIDOO invites Malaysians to join them as deliverers. Those who are looking to earn additional income are welcomed to sign-up with SKIDOO via the website, where there will be additional monthly incentives, weekly pays, along with other incentives and benefits.

Asokan added, “The rise of e-commerce means higher volume of deliveries and bigger expectations from customers for their parcels or goods to be delivered. Some customers are willing to compromise with the price just to have their items delivered in the best way possible. Moreover, we realize the demand for Business to Business and Business to Consumer is surging. Although SKIDOO is relatively new in the delivery and logistics industry, we’re already anticipating these demands and are agile enough to provide our best services to both B2B and B2C customers.”
