Take a little break at Cameron Highlands



It’s the season of public holidays and long weekends! I don’t know about you guys, but it does take a lot of brain juice to think up of places to go, or things to do during the holidays. Especially for me, because I like to keep it fresh by going for brand new experiences that I’ve never tried, sometimes ideas really run low!

A place that’s been on my mind lately is Cameron Highlands, maybe because the weather has been so hot lately and I’m looking for a place where I can escape the heat! It almost doesn’t feel like the usual Malaysia there, what with the cool weather and special attractions that we don’t usually get to see like strawberry farms, butterfly farms and gardens with beautiful plants that only grow in cooler climates. It’s a great place to spend the night away with family and friends!

Thing about overnight trips is, sometimes it can be a bit of a headache when it comes to picking accommodations. We don’t take trips to the same place too often, and so we want to make sure that we pick out the best place possible to stay at. It’s got to be clean, located near to attractions, has enough parking, and it’s not always easy to find information that you need.

Fortunately, I recently came across a Malay-language blog called Bagasi.my, which is a blog that was created to celebrate different travel destinations in Malaysia, and there is a post on Cameron Highlands! They have a variety of blog posts that highlight and introduce the different landmarks in different states, and also have plenty of suggestions on accommodation, with all the relevant information provided in their review. The best part is, there are direct links within the posts that link you to their booking sites, which makes things super easy and convenient!

With the information provided it was pretty easy to find and book our hotel for the trip, so we’re all set to get going! If you wanna read up on the range of hotels they have reviewed, you can read more on the link above! 

Happy holidays!


"Boyzone "Thank you and Goodnight Farewell" Tour in Kuala Lumpur"

Wowstar Creative Entertainment is proud to present Boyzone
"Thank you and Goodnight Farewell" Tour with guest artist Brian McFadden this 14th June 2019 at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam

Former boy band Westlife member and songwriter Brian McFadden has been announced as special guest performer in Boyzone’s “Thank You and Goodnight Farewell Tour” last show on 14th June 2019 at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam.

McFadden started his singing career as member of Westlife, which was formed in 1998 and released the debut studio album “Westlife” in 1999. He left Westlife in 2004 to begin his solo career and released the single “Real to Me,” a track in his debut solo album “Irish Son.”

In 2016, McFadden and Boyzone’s Keith Duffy formed the group Boyzlife and toured the world, performing their bands’ hits.

Boyzone’s Duffy, Michael Graham, Ronan Keating and Shane Lynch will be performing some of their greatest hits including “When You Say Nothing At All,” “No Matter What” and “Love Me For A Reason.” 

“When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we’d still have an army of fans some twenty-five years later... If you’d seen our famous first TV appearance on ‘The Late Late Show,’ you’d probably be surprised too!” said the band, according the tour website.

Boyzone enjoyed success throughout their career.

“We’ve played stadiums and arenas all over the world, released six albums, and had almost two-dozen hits. We really can’t put into words just how much you, the fans, have supported us along the way. Without that support, we would have never achieved what we have, and for that we’re eternally grateful,” they added.

Monsta X, one of the world’s most popular K-pop groups, is getting animated in an all-new episode of Cartoon Network’s Emmy-nominated We Bare Bears premiering in the United States in May. Panda (voiced by Bobby Moynihan) is a huge Monsta X fan and he is in for the surprise of a lifetime thanks to his thoughtful Bear Bros. In “Panda’s Birthday,” Grizz (voiced by Eric Edelstein) and Ice Bear (voiced by Demetri Martin) mastermind a creative scheme to help Panda meet his favorite K-pop band on his birthday.

MONSTA X and Ice Bear eventually meet for the first time; Ice Bear (who is surprisingly fluent in Korean) successfully places himself via travel luggage in the group’s hotel room.

Regarding this special collaboration, MONSTA X member I.M tells Billboard, “We are absolutely thrilled and honored to be in an episode of We Bare Bears. It’s one of the most beloved animated series in the world! We put in a lot of effort into this collaboration and hope our fans, as well as We Bare Bears fans, can truly enjoy it.”

Stay healthy and protected this Ramadan with Dettol!





Proper hygiene habits help protect your family from 100 harmful germs
Each year, Muslims embark on a spiritual journey during Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. Self-reflection, sharing goodness, and practicing moderation are synonymous with the essence of Ramadan, and fasting is one of the practices to express the good spirit of Ramadan.


Breaking fast (iftar) is where families and friends come together at the end of a day and iftar isn’t complete without a good visit to Ramadan bazaars!

Ramadan bazaars not only offer mouth-watering dishes and snacks after a long day of fasting, but allow Malaysians to mingle and experience the camaraderie of togetherness as a multi-racial, diverse nation.  While this is an exciting Ramadan routine, going to bazaars in hot humid weather, bumping into other bazaar goers and walking around food stalls increase your risk of germ exposure.

Launched over 80 years ago, Dettol is a leader in germ protection, helping to safeguard the health of families through better hygiene. With signature products like its Antiseptic Liquid, Antibacterial Liquid Hand Wash and Hand Sanitizer, Dettol protects your family from 100 harmful germs.

As Ramadan is a very meaningful month for Muslims, it is important to stay healthy so that everyone can celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri together with their beloved family and friends.  With Dettol, we can be 100% sure.

Introducing the New JOHNSON’S®





A reinvention of what’s best for your baby with the gentlest range of baby care products ever


Malaysian Moms’ No. 1 Choice1, JOHNSON’S® pushed the envelope of gentleness for baby by introducing the New JOHNSON’S® -- a range of baby care products with Ultra Gentle formulas that contain 0% parabens, phthalates, sulfates and dyes2, and designed to be irritation free for baby and toddlers’ delicate and developing skin.

Speaking at the new product range launch today, Mr. Prashant Mahalingam, Country Director, Consumer at Johnson & Johnson Malaysia, said the New JOHNSON’S® is more than a reformulation exercise, it represents a reinvention of the total JOHNSON’S® baby care range from the user or parent’s perspective. It is also created with the brand’s 125 years’ experience and in-depth knowledge in baby skin and manufacturing science.

“To create the New JOHNSON’S® range of products, we put parents at the center -- listening to more than 26,000 parents from around the world -- and paired their feedback with the latest science to shape and refine our products inside and out. The result is JOHNSON’S® gentlest range of baby care products ever, raising the bar of our Best for Baby™ standard from the formulation to packaging design,” he said. 

Marking its biggest re-launch to-date, the New JOHNSON’S® sets the new standard for gentle through the selection of purposeful ingredients and complete ingredient transparency. Boasting a new packaging design and easy-to-understand labels for parents to recognize products for children of different ages and stages of development, the products are created using ingredients that are assessed and have undergone a rigorous safety-assurance process, promising parents a greater peace of mind.

"Safety is and will always be our number 1 priority, with every JOHNSON'S® product designed to meet or exceed the top internationally recognized regulatory standards,” added Prashant. 


What has changed in the New JOHNSON’S®?

Purposeful ingredient choice: JOHNSON’S® carefully considered every single ingredient in the range, rejecting over 400 ingredients during the reformulation. Ingredients portfolio have been reduced by over 50%, with naturally-derived oils like coconut and cottonseed replacing ingredients like mineral oil. The new range has 0% parabens, phthalates, sulfates and dyes2 – less than 2% of cosmetic ingredients globally meets these standards of gentleness. 

Fragrances designed with mom and baby in mind: Smell, memory and emotion are intimately connected, with decades of research showing that multi-sensory experiences are a key part of happy, healthy baby development. JOHNSON’S® has not only retained the iconic scents for which their classic products are known and loved for, but also designed to maximize bonding moments between parent and baby. All the fragrances are now formulated to be free of allergens, and continue to follow the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) and the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) global standards. 




Parent-friendly packaging: The new JOHNSON’S® bottles are now equipped with pumps designed for easier and one-handed use for parents, so mom and dad’s attention can remain focused on the baby. 

Products specially designed for every age and stage in a baby’s life: JOHNSON’S® products don’t just simply cleanse and moisturize—each are specially formulated to address special skin needs of babies and to turn moments of care into opportunities to strengthen babies’ connection to their parents and to nurture their healthy development. The new range features four ‘Ages & Stages’ to help parents easily navigate between the products within the ranges. The New JOHNSON’S® baby care range is suitable for minutes old newborn babies to 6-year old kids.


Reasons babies require gentle products

To help Malaysian mothers understand why newborns and toddlers need gentle skin care, Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Ismail, Consultant Paediatrician and Secretary General of the Asia Pacific Pediatric Association lends his presence at the New JOHNSON’S® launch to answer some frequently asked questions from moms. Datuk Dr. Zulkifli explained that infants’ skin is under-developed and is therefore delicate and requires gentle cleansing and care. “A newborn’s epidermis or the outermost layer of skin is 30% thinner than adults’,” he said.

“Baby’s thinner skin means it cannot absorb and retain moisture in the skin and is prone to moisture evaporation and dry skin,” he continued. 

With baby skin already vulnerable to losing moisture, strong cleansers will only disrupt the skin barrier even more, causing further dehydration. As such, parents need to select gentle cleansers that do not disrupt baby’s delicate skin and keep the skin barrier hydrated and in healthy condition with moisturizing.


Why you should CHOOSE gentle™

“At JOHNSON’S®, we’ve always been committed to delivering only the best for babies. We have never been more passionate in advocating for parents to CHOOSE gentle, that is to select the gentlest baby care products for their little ones,” shared Mr. Prashant Mahalingam.

Excited about the JOHNSON’S® CHOOSE gentle™ campaign, several celebrity mothers attended the New JOHNSON’S® launch to show their support. Actress and model Amyra Rosli, who became a mother in 2017, is an advocate of gentle baby care products for her 1 year 7 months old son Aqeef Anaqi Bin Amar. Her ‘gentle’ choice for Aqeef is JOHNSON’S® Milk + Rice Bath and Lotion. “As my little boy is actively crawling and constantly on all fours on the various floor surfaces at home, I have to ensure his skin is well moisturized and protected so that he can enjoy his exploration and develop happily,” said the bright-eye mom.


Comedian actress and well-known radio announcer Gan Mei Yan also advocates Malaysian moms to CHOOSE gentle™. She has a 4-year-old son Seng Jo and has just delivered her daughter Seng Sum 6 months ago. The mother of two recommends JOHNSON’S® CottonTouch™ Wash and Lotion for newborns and infants below 12 months. “I believe every newborn deserves the gentlest baby care products. This ultra-light, easy-to-rinse wash and lightweight lotion with no sticky residue allow me to get a good grip of my little Seng Sum during bath and change. It gives me even more confidence to handle her, even though I have had experience caring for Seng Jo. And the smell… it makes her even more lovable to hug and hold. Expecting moms, you need this JOHNSON’S® gentlest baby care for newborns!” exclaimed Mei Yan.

The New JOHNSON’S® range of baby care products will be available at major retail outlets nationwide starting June 2019. For more information about the New JOHNSON’S®, visit www.johnsonsbaby.com.my or follow us on JOHNSON’S® Malaysia Facebook page at www.facebook.com/JohnsonsbabyMY.
