Pandemic 2021: RichWorks Committed to Helping 605,000 Entrepreneurs Rise Again

In the year 2021, we have experienced different stories where the pandemic gave human society a challenge and the year practically ended with the flood disaster in December. Destroying a good portion of people's lives, and it takes courage and determination to get their feet back together again after the disaster. 

I would have to say that Richworks has been looking into the current status of the natural disasters that the community and people of Malaysia have faced, and understands the feelings of the people, including the entrepreneurs of the nation, as the Founder of RichWorks International Sdn Bhd (Richworks), Datuk Wira Dr Azizan Osman with 31 members of his own family were affected with Covid-19. 

The struggle to fight for survival did not stop Dr Azizan from finding ways to still live life. Despite his mother in law passing, and the fact that doctors told him that his chances of living are low despite having an oxygen tank to help him breathe, that made him realize how life can be so precious. Alhamdulillah, he strived through and we all believed that Allah SWT gave him a second chance to make a difference by helping others and those who are in need during these crucial times.

After being discharged from the hospital, Dr Azizan committed himself to run a free program to be attended by thousands of people. With a total of 7 free programs, which is equivalent to 98 hours, he offered his guidance and strength to entrepreneurs to ensure they strive to still achieve in life despite the hard times that everyone is facing. 

In total, RichWorks was able to help nearly 605,000 people through 13 entrepreneurship programs that were fully sponsored by RichWorks. In fact, one of their programs happen to be Wanita Bangkit Berniaga (WBB) in which received government recognition when it was mentioned in the Dewan Rakyat as a collaboration partner of the Ministry of Women, Family, and Community Development.

Meanwhile, RichWorks Chief Business Officer, Radz Mohd. told, his party is not left behind in giving back to the community through the RichWell Charitable Organization (RichWell)."The #RichWellBantu campaign launched by Dr. Azizan in July last year managed to raise RM501,497 and helped more than 2,000 families. Not stopping there, a quick donation of RM500,000 was collected from our entrepreneurs and RichWorks itself in 24 hours for flood victims in Selangor on December 18 last year," he highlighted.

According to Radz, RichWorks together with Titanium & Spire members also contributed 762 goats and 84 camels worth RM824,160 in the sacrificial ritual this time. Apart from that, Titanium members and RichWorks students also sponsored 9 students to Tarim Yemen with a contribution of RM180,000 in conjunction with Maulidur Rasul.


Meanwhile, the most successful entrepreneur development guidance and training companies in the country still continued their mission in developing and expanding entrepreneurs to a higher level. Alhamdulillah, in 2021, a total number of RichWorks mentoring participants, namely Titanium, Spire, and EliteX, has amounted to 1,855 people with accumulated sales of RM3.7 billion.

For Titanium members alone, a total of 312 entrepreneurs managed to generate RM3.2 billion, RM495 million (519 Spire members), and RM46.9 million (1,024 EliteX members). Through our Spire mentoring program which provides entrepreneurs with the first RM1 million in sales a year, a total of 72 entrepreneurs have achieved it. Not only that, 77 businesses under the guidance of RichWorks achieved sales of over RM10 million, five businesses (RM50 million and above), and five businesses (RM100 million and above) in 2021.

Thanks to the successes and challenges faced in 2021, that pretty much sums up RichWorks journey that they have worked on and will be intensified again this new year with God's willing. May the efforts of RichWorks (richworks.com) to help more entrepreneurs and its mission be facilitated and blessed by Allah SWT.

[REVIEW] Bonnisan by Himalaya | Natural Remedy for Digestive Problems for Infants and Children

Being a mother of two, it can be a struggle to deal with their discomfort, especially when it relates back to the digestive discomfort and gas in the stomach.  I would say that the biggest struggle is that in younger children, they struggle to describe the discomfort that they face, which usually would either be colic and gas or when having digestive problems. While exploring some options to resolve this issue, i found myself exploring Himalaya's Bonnisan as a natural supplement for kids that targets to solve discomfort relating to digestive problems.

Benefits of Bonnisan

Some of the benefits of Bonnisan that caught my attention is that it helps to promote healthy growth. For me with 2 kids, it's pretty convenient when it comes to usage to be suitable for both infants and toddlers as well. It enhances and improves appetite while relieving colic and gas in the stomach in which most younger kids would struggle with. With a 4 month baby in hand, I do notice that it helps to reduce prolonged and intense crying too, which my biggest suspect was that he is struggling with colic issues. This also means, the Bonnisan definitely did solve my problem for my poor baby. 

Bonnisan Treatments

In terms of treatments, other than acting as a colic discomfort remedy, it also can be used as a treatment of common digestive problems in both infants and children. With a toddler who is pretty picky when it comes to eating, I would say that the Bonnisan pretty much improved her appetite as well. It can also be a daily health supplement in infants and children as well to prevent common digestive complaints while promoting healthy growth. 

Naturally Sourced Ingredients

Most importantly, I admire that the key ingredients that make this a great health supplement for kids would be that it relies on natural resources namely, dill oil, cardamom, and Indian long pepper which helps to relieve colic and gas in infants and children, giving them a better-lined stomach to ensure that they would not have to suffer from the discomfort. 

Dosage

My little son is currently 4 months, so I usually give him 1 teaspoon, three times daily, and that is enough to keep my little bub happy daily. Meanwhile, for my 2-year-old daughter, I would give her 2 teaspoons, three times daily. I guess the worry I had was to get her to enjoy this, but surprisingly she accepted the flavor as it's not that strong and pretty much gives a little tickle on her tongue to explore the flavor. Other than that, below would be the recommended dosage otherwise: 

infant (up to 1 month) : half teaspoon, three times daily

baby (1 month to 6 months) : 1 teaspoon, three times daily

children (6 months to 3 years) : 2 teaspoons, three times daily

Verdict

As a verdict of my overall experience of giving this as a health supplement, I would definitely say that I see a difference in my kid's behavior. They're pretty much happier, and my little 4 months baby wouldn't cry even when he tries to burp. I guess Bonnisan did the trick and I would definitely recommend it to my friends who are new parents to get this as a health supplement for their kids. Most importantly, it's a natural remedy containing no chemicals that would harm the little ones.

Al-Hamra Integrated School (AHIS) offers an Integrated Holistic Education System

To a fresh start for the coming year in 2022, Al -Hamra Integrated School has introduced the concept of holistic integration in their education system (Integrated Holistic Education System - IHES). The learning system in a holistic integration is an educational process that integrates all aspects and values in learning such as moral, religious, psychological, philosophical, and social values that will be practiced and carried out comprehensively into the souls of children, making it one of the complete ways to expose them into different concepts of life.

This approach aims to create a teaching environment that can stimulate children to have the ability of basic skills, understanding, relationships, which also includes different academic disciplines. Indirectly this approach allows children to think, synthesize and respond to what is being taught. Since the education system is in IHES, it does not limit to focusing on examination-based learning alone but also cares about sharing comprehensive output-based learning. Especially when it comes to producing a generation that is literate in the Al-Quran, not only they would be able to read and memorize but at the same time able to understand what is explained in the book of the Al-Quran.

The determination of classes at Al-Hamra Integrated School depends on the ability of students through assessments conducted by the school. This means that the education standards of a 7-year-old may possibly jump into the class of an 8-year-old. The assessment will be based on a set by Cambridge (Cambridge Assessment International Education). Al-Hamra also offers IGCSE and SPM exams for their students (depending on the wants and needs of the students themselves), which provides a complete solution to educational options.

At Al-Hamra, the classes begin at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m daily throughout 5 days of attendance in a week. For Al-Hamra Integrated School, offers two types of classes to choose from, either physical (attending school) or online. In conjunction to control the exposure of Covid, every week students and staff of Al-Hamra Integrated School are required to do a Covid screening test to ensure everything is free from the virus from spreading to ensure that the environment is safe for students to learn and for teachers to teach.

Conducive Classroom Atmosphere with Great Facilities

When children are able to learn in a very comfortable environment, they can certainly focus and be happy to understand what the teacher is sharing. It's even better when there is the availability of various best facilities and learning aids that would facilitate the learning process of a child.

On each floor of the school building, there is a bathroom, shoe racks, and lockers (student storage) for convenience. I actually love this feature offered by the school as I remember the classic days of carrying REALLY heavy books around and that can be very pressuring over the shoulders of a growing child. There is also a computer room, library, laboratory and surau for the use of learning for teachers and students as well. 

Levels of Learning at Al-Hamra Integrated School


The school offers 3 levels of classes at Al-Hamra Integrated School, namely Early education/pre-school (early years), Primary School, and Secondary School. To adapt to the covid situation, all food during their breaks will be delivered to their respective classes (during mealtime). This is to avoid too much movement of students and also sitting in large groups.

Sunnah Oriented Co-Curriculum

At Al-Hamra Integrated School, 3 types of co-curricular activities are offered, namely swimming (year 1-year 3) and each student is required to participate in martial arts. Apart from that, there are also archery and horse riding activities. I have to admit that i love that these skills are required according to the Sunnah. For children to be exposed to these Sunnah co-curricular activities, this would benefit a child without parents worrying about looking for a seperate school that would provide these activities for self-benefit.

STEAM-Based Supplementary Co-Curriculum

Other than that, Al-Hamra also offers cooking classes, robotics, coding learning, and so much more.

Enrollment At Al-Hamra Integrated School

Student registration is now open, and parents may register at any time of the year. However, officially there are 2 main registrations for more formalities in July and December. To have the opportunity to send a child to receive an education at Al-Hamra Integrated School is a long-term investment that is very definitely worthwhile. Not only will they be well educated, but it would help, and shape their personalities with worldwide education. Preparing children to be a generation ready to be leaders and caliphs on earth.

For the 2022 school session, a discount for siblings of up to 100% for tuition fees will be given. The fees at Al-Hamra are currently competitive compared to international institutions, with a budget between RM900 to RM1900 a month according to their level of the syllabus.

Shopee rounds off 12.12 Birthday Sale


In Malaysia, top sellers selling home and living products collectively recorded over 

RM4.8 million in sales in a single day on 12 December

 


Shopee concluded the region’s most joyful year-end celebration, 12.12 Birthday Sale, with visits surging 6 times on 12 December compared to an average day. Shopee users also soaked up the holiday spirit and enjoyed the best deals and rewards, with over 850 million Shopee vouchers claimed on 12.12 across the region. 

 

This translated to a timely lift for sellers and brands on the platform, as orders on Shopee Mall surged by 14 times compared to an average day, and 1 in 8 users are first-time Mall shoppers. At the same time, more people were able to support local businesses with Shopee, with 9 in 10 users shopping from local sellers on 12 December. 

 

Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer at Shopee said, “We are heartened to be closing the year on a positive note with a successful 12.12 Birthday Sale, the finale of Shopee’s year-end shopping festivals. We are glad to be able to spread joy to all our users by bringing shoppers the best deals whilst boosting visibility of more businesses.” 

 

“2021 has been a year of accelerated digitalisation. We see this through the increase of online-first customers, as well as the number of new sellers to our platform this year. As we move into 2022, we look forward to continuing connecting even more shoppers, businesses, and the wider communities so they can enjoy the benefits of e-commerce.”

 

12.12 Birthday Sale highlights in Malaysia

 

Catered to all shopping needs in the holiday season: Closer to home, Malaysians were taking the opportunity to hunt for the best gifts for themselves and their loved ones. Popular products include:

            Home appliances were snapped up during the 12AM-2AM Midnight Madness where users enjoyed 12.12 Only Deals, 95% Off 12.12 Only Vouchers and ShopeePay Vouchers with 100% Cashback. For example, over 3,000 orders were made for robot vacuum cleaners in 2 hours.

            Parents took the chance to prepare their children for the new school term, as stationeries such as pencils, pencil cases, sharpeners and more were in high demand. On 12 December, close to 870,000 units of stationery products were bought.

            Similarly, pet owners took the opportunity to pamper their furkids during the year-end shopping festival, buying up more than half a million products including pet food and treats for their pets to enjoy the year-end festive period together.

 

At the same time, customers from Sabah and Sarawak took advantage of the 12.12 Birthday Sale celebrations to shop for items, as each state recorded a 5 times uplift in orders on 12 December as compared to an average day. Among the products sought after by Sabahans and Sarawakians include groceries such as dried foods, health supplements, pet supplies like cat food and cat litter as well as tools for knitting, crocheting and even gardening.

 

Accelerated growth for local businesses: The surge in traffic during the 12.12 celebrations has given a bigger exposure to more sellers. As a result, top local sellers from the Home & Living category collectively generated RM4.8 million in sales in a single day on 12 December. The category was very popular amongst Malaysians in the lead up to the holidays with sellers offering home improvement and decoration products enjoying higher demand. 

 

In addition, more sellers outside big cities were also able to participate in the digital economy and boost their online presence at the 12.12 Birthday Sale; they saw 4.5 times uplift in orders, compared to an average day. 

 

Shoppers also turned to ShopeePay for all their shopping needs, as users topped up their ShopeePay wallets 1.5 million times on 12.12 to enjoy a seamless payment experience, both online and offline. 

 

On top of that, ShopeePay also enabled more users to connect with offline merchants at 12.12. With over 2.5 million purchases made through Deals Near Me, Shopee’s location-based online-to-offline feature, offline retailers enjoyed a boost in footfall throughout 12.12 as users redeemed their payment vouchers in-store.

 

A celebration for local sellers: Via its #ShopeeSapotLokal initiative, Shopee concludes its ‘Seller of the Month’ contest with users voting for their favourite local business. Drum Coffee Roasters emerged as the crowd favourite, and Malaysians can tune in to their heartwarming story on the #ShopeeSapotLokal Show on Shopee Live at 1PM on 15 December.

They are now shipping their products nationwide and even to Singapore via the Shopee International Platform. Drum Coffee Roasters will be taking home up to RM6,200 worth of prizes, including a feature in a Shopee Live stream session, store vouchers, Shopee ads credits and exclusive merchandise.

Kitsui Korean White Skincare Halal | Brighter, Healthy, and Smoother Skin | Suitable for Oily and Acne skin

Hello everyone! Today I'll be sharing with you a little review on Kitsui Korean White Skincare range which I recently got to try out myself. Before I get into details, the beauty of this skincare would be that it's a Korean based skincare that is halal, to also be known are a brightening skincare range to suit oily and acne skin. Typically if you know your skincare well, whitening products tend to dry out the skin, which usually doesnt work well for those who have oily and acne skin, lucky enough, Kitsui Korean White Skincare offers a solution. 

Kitsui Korean White Skincare Halal 

Starting off with a little introduction on the range, it offers 4 products which would be the Cleansing gel, Toning Lotion, Essence Serum and Moisturizer. This whole range itself is a complete skincare regime if youre looking for something that would make your skin brighter and healthier without damaging your existing oily and acne skin. With that being said, lets jump into a little review of what i think about hte product from the feels of it on my skin, to the fine texture of each product. 

Korean White Cleansing Gel


As usual, the first step to cleansing would be to start with the Korean White Cleansing Gel. The Cleansing Gel has a transparent gel like texture that doesnt foam up when you lightly massage your face, but what fancied me about the product would be the minty scent. I cant figure what it is, but i love the minty fragrance that basically leaves the skin with a cooling cleansed effect that feels really refreshing. After cleansing, it doesn't leave that squeaky clean feeling (Which is good) because it does leave the skin still moisturized. 

Korean White Toning Lotion



Next step would be to tone the skin with the Korean White Toning Lotion. The Toning Lotion is pretty basic cause well, its a toner! This toner has a similar relaxing scent like the cleanser but really i enjoyed applying this over the skin. Its theraputic with its aromatheraphy scent + the fact that it leaves the skin very cool after applying. It's been a week since i've been using this and i would have to say that it does a pretty good job in minimizing my pores. 

Korean White Essence Serum



After toning, would be one of the highlighted product among the range. The Korean White Essence Serum is formulated with allantoin, coenzyme Q10, Rosemary Extract and Niacinamide. If you have been up to date with the kbeauty trend, you would be aware that Niacinamide has been very popular in the beauty industry. Niacinamide helps to repair the skin and the fact that it provides all the good stuff to the skin, its hard not to admire this Essence Serum. Compared to the cleanser and toner, this doesnt have a strong scent, but the essence feels very lightweight over the skin (which i love!) and it does a great job to keep the skin hydrated at all times. It has a slightly sticky feel when you freshly apply it over skin, but it eventually fades off when you pair it with the moisturizer. 

Korean White Moisturizer



Down with the last product, the Korean White Moisturizer, i would have to say that im beyond impressed with the quality. Not usually a fan of moisturizers cause they feel pretty thick over the skin, but the Kitsui Korean White Moisturizer has a unique formulation that has a water-based feel that also glides very smoothly over skin when applied. To basically get the message out, i would say that its a water based moisturizer that keeps the skin hydrated and personally i find it great at keeping my skin hydrated when im always in air-conditioned rooms.


As a verdict, I would have to say that I can reassure you that it fits my oily-combination skin really well. Appearance-wise, it comes in a minimalist style featuring white with some shades of pink and purple in a plastic bottle. Most skincare I buy are usually in glass packagings, but this is more suited for daily use as it prevents any breaking accidents in the bathroom. Overall I would say that the quality of the product is definitely way better than how the packaging looks, so it would be really appropriate to say to 'not judge a book by its cover'. In three words to conclude my review, I would say that this range offers brightening effects, hydrating, and feels very lightweight reassuring you that you'll enjoy using this daily! 


All Kitsui Skincare are guaranteed to be Halal, free from alcohol, and only uses essential oil as a natural fragrance. On top of that its also free from ingredients sourced by animal, artificial colouring, paraben's, toxins, sulfate, perfume, parrafin and silicone which assures their users that their products are clean and safe to be used.
