AyamBersamaMu Community Pantry Initiative Goes Viral in Selangor!


Omg you guys! I cant be more than happy to share this amazing news with all of you. Earlier i shared about the AyamBersamaMu Community Pantry Initiative and now it has gone viral in Selangor. Faith in humanity restored! Despite the Hari Raya celebrations being a little muted this year, its amazing how Malaysian humanity has made a difference to choose to be a part of the initiative by providing basic necessities through the #AyamBersamaMu community pantry initiative.

Currently in Selangor, Pusat Jagaan Kasih Nurul Hasanah partnered with Ayam Brand to manage the community pantry that operates on a ‘Take what you need, leave what you can concept’. The weatherproof pantry is stocked with daily necessities such as Ayam Brand products. It is set up outside the compound so that social distancing is observed, and is open to the public round-the- clock. Staff and residents update community groups on social media and messaging apps, on what is available, and what is needed. Their efforts have made the initiative viral.


Through this initiative volunteers are returning their kindness by preparing homecooked open house meals using Ayam BrandTM products. The meals spanned traditional favourites such as Roti Jala with sardine curry to macaroni fruit salad! Shuhaida Kabdy, was quick to volunteer to cook for the children as her way of contributing to the community pantry. Is'nt that sweet?


To date more than 5,000 Ayam Brand products have been taken from the pantries nationwide, and thousands of other items have been contributed by individuals, companies and NGOs to help those who are struggling. The AyamBersamaMu community pantry is becoming self-sustaining with many requests to start similar programs in other locations, according to Ayam Brand Malaysia’s Marketing Manager, Nathan Deverre.

Through its long-running Corporate Social Responsibility programmes Ayam BrandTM has contributed more than 2 million healthy meals for charity, providing nutritious food to more than 22,500 people from 538 charity organisations and NGOs over the past 13 years.

#AyamWithYou Community Pantries by Anjung Singgah and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Nurul Hasanah | Helping those in need

During this hard times with the Covid-19 pandemic temporarily taking control of the lives of people around the world, we have now created a new norm to stay safe and prevent the outbreak from spreading. While times are tough, Malaysian are pulling together to support communities with kindness and trust, by having communal food pantries for those who need it. Other than Malaysians doing their part to show some support, Ayam Brand has taken an initiative by having the #AyamWithYou Food Pantry with 13 charity homes nationwide to help those who are in need. 

Ayam Brand #AyamWithYou Food Pantry in Anjung Singgah Yayasan Kebajikan Negara.
A homeless shelter in Jalan Lekiu, Anjung Singgah is leading the way for surrounding communities by managing the #AyamWithYou pantry in this particular area. The weatherproof pantry is set up outside the shelter so that social distancing is observed. It is open to the public round-the-clock. Staff and residents update the community about the food pantry through community groups on social media and messaging apps, and they top up the Ayam Brand™ products daily.
As to date, the response to the initiative has been overwhelming with the daily allocation of Ayam Brand™ products such as tuna, baked beans, processed peas, canned pineapples and coconut milk snapped up quickly, and other essentials being added, with strong support from the community. Its nice to see Corporate Social Responsibility programmes by Ayam Brand™ , and FYI, they have contributed more than 2 million healthy meals for charity, providing nutritious food to more than 21,800 people from 524 charity organisations and NGOs over the past 12 years.

 
Details of the Ayam Brand community pantry in KL & Selangor

This year the brand has decided to support the Covid-19 front liners at Hospital Sungai Buloh, 13 charity homes, the #AyamWithYou food pantry initiative, and the Anjung Singgah Kuala Lumpur Homeless Transit centre, with plans to support more organisations and communities. For those who have not heard about the campaign, the food pantry items are free for those who need it, while to those who would want to contribute, you can add dry food, snacks, stationery, cleaning products and other essential items to lend a helping hand. 

Members of the Anjung Singgah community taking only what they need from the Ayam Brand community pantry 
Throughout the campaign as to date, they have received fresh vegatables, dates, baby formula, diapers and even raya cookies! Its surprising to see how much the community cares which really resembles the #KitaJagaKita closeness. With the #AyamWithYou food pantry project, they have managed to make this Raya special by building stronger bonds of kindness, trust, and support in our community. So much love for this campaign with its positive impact, wont you agree? 

Kids of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Nurul Hasanah filling up food to the #AyamWithYou Food Pantry.
Ayam Brand™ staff have helped spread the word on the food pantry so that more can benefit or contribute, and started the ball rolling by being among the first to contribute non-food items to the pantry. Their staff started with their families and friends with a list of necessities for the pantry. And from the spread of word of mouth, the community are also willing and eager to help which created a huge impact to spread kindness during this hard time.

Thinking of conributing yourself? The #AyamWithYou food pantry is located Anjung Singgah, Lot 28-32 Jalan Hang Lekiu, 50100 Kuala Lumpur and at Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Nurul Hasanah No 1, Jalan Pimping Kanan, Ukay Heights 68000 Ampang Selangor where you can drop off anything that you think the community would need, and trust the #AyamWithYou team to ensure that they are properly allocated to those who need it. Be part of the movement to receive or to give essentials.

[BEAUTY REVIEW] THANK YOU FARMER | KOREAN SKINCARE

Reviewing Thank You Farmers Deep Toner and Light Gel Cream
When it comes to Korean Skincare, I would have to admit that I know that you can't really go wrong when it comes to hydration. If youre a beauty enthusiast, you would know that Korea is well known to be the beauty supplying the industry for mass, and we all know that they are leading in providing quality beauty products at an affordable price gaining trust from all around the world. Without hesitation, I saw a review on THANK YOU FARMER from another blogger and got pretty convinced with what they have to offer. After my recent trip from Bali, my skin was a little dry, so I wanted to find something to hydrate my skin better, leading to you to a review on two products from THANK YOU FARMER which would be the True Water Deep Toner and the True Water Light Gel Cream.

THANK YOU FARMER

The product usually comes in a box that looks like these
Each box is sealed to assure you that it's new
Before I get into details, let me give you a short introduction to where THANK YOU FARMER came about. Starting off with the name, it may sound a little funny at first glance since youre thank you to a farmer, but behind the meaning to that is actually the concept of thanking a farmer since they are one of the most honest people who follow the law of nature. From sweat and endeavors, they can get healthy grains and fruit from nature. That is deep poetry right there. So, behind THANK YOU FARMER, they make cosmetics with the heart of an honest farmer by providing skincare that can achieve healthy skin naturally without putting to much stress on the skin.

Oh not to forget that there are their lot number and expiry date too
The brand carries a few ranges for you to choose from, providing a solution for a variety of skin concerns that we may face. Just to give you an idea, they have skincare ranges such as Miracle Age, True Water Deep, True Water Light, Sun Project, Be Beautiful, Back to Iceland, Back to Pure and Relax, Star Mask and Country Man. I believe the beauty of the brand would be that their skincare can inter-exchange among the ranges, making it customizable skincare for you to solve your skin concerns. Isn't that great? Now, let's get into details of the products that I’ve gotten for myself. 

TRUE WATER DEEP TONER

True Water Deep Toner
Since im having dry skin outside of my T-zone, this seemed like a good product for me to hydrate the skin. This range offers a calming moisturizing that provides deep moisturizing for dry skin. The range provides hydration, whitening, evens out the skin, and prevents premature aging with a special ingredient of Inositol and Hyaluronic Acid (My favorite ingredient in any skincare!).

Slightly thicker than your usual toners. (Combi liquid and gel texture)
Upon the first impression of the packaging, I would have to say that I love the minimalist look of it. The True Water Deep Toner comes in a glass bottle. I would think that all toners are pretty much the same, but when I tried this over my skin, its definitely beyond ordinary! Most toners may only have a function to minimize pores and they tend to usually be pretty drying for the skin, but the True Water Deep Toner is a game-changer as it not only minimizes pores but moisturizes too! The texture is slightly thicker than your usual toner, but it ends up to be well absorbed by the skin. 

Loving how lightweight it feels on the skin
I usually apply this after cleansing by applying the toner over my palms and lightly dab all over my face until its fully absorbed. I don't usually use my palms to apply toner, but when the product is good, we shall not let the cotton pads absorb all the good stuff! Hehe. I absolutely love the cool moisturized feeling it gives, and it works wonders around my dry skin area without stinging the skin. 

TRUE WATER LIGHT GEL CREAM

True Water Light Gel Cream
This range is formulated to be light and airy for oily or combination skin, which is perfect because I have intense oily T-zone + occasional acne around my face. Too much moisturizing ain't all that good, so with the True Water Light, this gives me just enough moisture even for my combination skin. The range offers a solution for pore and sebum concerns by providing just the right amount of moisture while controlling the sebum secretion over the skin. This has been made possible by two main ingredients which would be Inositol and Trehalose.

The tub comes with the seal to keep its content fresh at all times
Checkout the pastel shade! It's sooo pretty!
To combine with my toner, I decided to use the True Water Light Gel Cream which has a purpose to hold the moisture of the skin. Other than holding in moisture, it also soothes the skin from redness too! And again, you have to give credit to the design of the packaging. I love how it looks very minimalist and it nicely matches my toner despite it being from a different range.

The texture is light and translucent
The texture of this pretty much matches the name of the product, as it has a gel-like texture. Im a little particular when it comes to gel-cream textures, but this had a really good feel when applied to the skin. Other than it being very cooling when applied (great to minimize pores!), it’s also well absorbed by the skin too! It does feel a little sticky when freshly applied, but once the product sinks in, it has a mild layer of moisturizer to prevent the skin from losing moisture.

Easy to apply and feels amazingly light on the skin
I would usually apply this after applying toner, and essence. A side note, don't forget to use a spatula to kee the contents as hygienic as possible, instead of dipping your finger in which might contaminate the product. This gel-cream does a great job in locking in moisture and essence giving my skin optimum benefits of letting the products and nutrients sink in without it being naturally oxidized. Not to forget it also works pretty good as a primer too since I can just apply to makeup over my skin, and that would last me a good 8 hours throughout the day which I think is a fair amount of time. 

VERDICT

After 2 weeks of using this, my skin has definitely become smoother and brighter effortlessly
As an overall verdict, I would say that im pretty impressed with the two products that I’ve tested. Other than it being very aesthetic, it's also a quality product to pamper the skin. I’ve been diligently using this in my skincare routine for the past 2 weeks, and I would say that the results are rather convincing. Previously, I had flaky skin and oily T-zones, but after using this, it really moisturizes the skin and controls my oily secretion really well, giving me worry-free skin throughout the day.

THANK YOU FARMER products are also Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Free, Sulfate-Free,  made out of natural ingredients, safe for sensitive skin and has been dermatologically tested making it an extra bonus! In terms of pricing, it may be a little expensive than your drug store skincare, but judging by the quality of if, I would definitely say that it's worth every penny! After this finishes, I would say that I would repurchase it as it suits my skin well.

THANK YOU FARMER

[REVIEW] Why you SHOULD get the. Mamonde Rose Water Toner

Mamonde Rose Water Toner Review
Before i share with you about my thoughts on this toner, i would like to share with you that this is not at all a paid review and the content in this post is purely based on my experience of using the Mamonde Rose Water Toner. This being my 5th bottle to date, i would have to say that i am under a floral love spell with this particular toner. If you are curious about how good this toner is, im here writing this post to reassure you on what makes it good and why i love it so much. So, lets start off with a little introduction.

Every packaging is sealed so the freshest stay at its finest before you start using
Mamonde itself has been one of my all time favourite skincare brand ever since they launched, considering that their products are pretty innovative in repairing the skin by using the power of different flowers from nature. That being said, being a person who loves getting bouquets monthly, it was like fate has brought us together. Since they have tons of ranges offering different skin concern solutions, i'll start off by sharing with you on something more versatile and suitable for all skin types, the Mamonde Rose Water Toner.

We know that there are tons of proclaim rose water toners in the market, but what makes Mamonde's Rose Water Toner different would be that the content itself gurantees over 90% of its content to be purely Rose Water. That being said, did you know that the benefits of Rose water has soothing and moisturizing effects for the skin that offers hydration to keep your skin soft and supple. Not to forget, since this product is sourced naturally from the flower itself, Mamonde managed to keep this toner free from 7 harmful chemicals, namely free from animal ingredients, mineral oil, polyacrylamide, imidazolidinyl urea, trithanolamine, silicone oil and its also free from synthetic colour! 

TEXTURE

Waterry texture
But the smells like roses. Not too strong, but mild enough for you to enjoy the scent
Now, texture is something that i find really important when it comes to toners. It plays a really important role in functionality and comfort which would usually result in how loyal you can include this toner into your skincare regime. The texture of this is watery but the highlight of this is that the toner feels very lightweight on skin when applied. It doest leave any sticky residue and it really cools the skin after application leaving your pore's minimized after every cleanse. I just love how it feels on my skin, and that is the key to a good toner. 

MORE THAN JUST YOUR REGULAR TONER


Use a compressed mask that you can usually get from Daiso
Soak it in the toner
Apply it on face and leave it on for a good 10 minutes
This being one of the most natural toner's i've ever used, its just more than your regular toner that you apply after cleansing. Other than a toner, did you know that this product is also great as a face mist and as an impromptu face mask? During my travels, i just had to pack some of this toner in my on the go travel sized spray bottle and it has done a good job in keeping my skin well hydrated throuhout my trip that it became a habit for me to bring it around wherever i go. Not to forget, you can also just get those compact mask packs and rinse it in the toner, and waa-lah! You have a face mask to keep your skin hydrated. Since its very versatile and can be used in different ways, i found myself loving this product which in result kept me coming back for more.

Its juts one of those recomended toners that is beyond average.
As a conclusion, i would have to say that this toner really does wonders to your skin or if your skin is in need of hydration. I have combination skin and my skin tends to flake around the lower cheek area which i find really irritating, but after using this toner, i havent experienced any dry skin situation ever since. Its multipurpose, great for hydrating needs and smells amazing! Mamonde offers a variety of toners as well to counter different skin concerns such as sebum control, firming, exfoliating and sensitive skin too! Despite not trying any of the other variants yet, im pretty sure they are just as good! Price wise, it may be on the higher range, but for the quality it provides, theres no going wrong with this toner. Anyways, if you have reached this far in my blog, i would like to thank you for dropping by and i hope that you found this post useful in making your decision. Till my next post xx

    [REVIEW] Kundal | Macadamia Damaged Care Solution Ultra Serum

    Reviewing Kundal Ultra Serum
    Times can be rough when you cant head to the saloon just to give your hair some pampering, especially when they need it most. I have been facing some serious hair damage lately and it has been pretty dry despite me washing my hair with conditioner. Which in results, means that I need to zest my hair care regime to keep my hair at its best. The solution to that? A good hair oil might just do the trick! This time around, I decided to try a brand called Kundal, a haircare brand originated from Korea. We all know Korea is popular for their skincare, but this time around im exploring their haircare options. Want to find out more about it? Scroll away!
     
    Packaging is pretty straight forward and i love how classy the bottle looks!
    Starting off with the brand, the word Kundal is actually derived from the word 'Kunst' where in German means  'technology' and 'Kindal' in native Australian means 'Macadamia Tree'. Combine these two words together, you get Kundal that represents innovation from nature. We all know that the Macadamia fruit contains high nutrition and has very well moisturizing properties, and with Kundal's technology, they have managed to innovatively extract the nutrients to turn it into an exclusive hair serum.

    Got mine in baby powder fragrance
    This hair serum goes beyond your regular hair oil as its formulated with non-harmful ingredients, its full of natural nutrients, carries endless research and testing, uses high-grade ingredients, generous in quantity and is sold at an affordable price so that everyone can afford it. One of the factors that got me instantly hooked with the serum is that other than being functional, it smells amazing, and being a mother myself, I got myself the variant that smells like baby powder. And believe me, it really smells like baby powder.

    TEXTURE

    Just like hair oil, but way lighter!
    The main ingredient that makes this ultra serum moisturizing would be credited to 2 ingredients that is within the bottle, honey, and macadamia. With both these ingredients, it definitely guarantees high moisturizing benefits. Okay, if youre a regular user of hair oil, you would be aware that it's usually pretty oily and sticky after application, and if applied too much, it would make your hair look flat right? With Kundal, I was pretty surprised to find that it's not at all sticky and it feels very natural when applied on your hair. The texture has a good combination of oil and serum, but once applied to hair, it feels very lightweight! That left me impressed as the residue didn't even stick onto my hands.

    BEFORE & AFTER

    The results are pretty instant too! Just look at the difference!
    If you know me, you would be aware that I do a lot of sports, my hair is usually exposed to sunlight which eventually leads to leaving my hair looking dry most of the time. To use this serum, usually, I'll apply this after drying my hair from the shower, pumping an appropriate amount (depending on hair length) on my palms, and applying it onto my hair from the middle to the ends. Once applied, you can choose to style it with a hairdryer or leave it as it is. In my case, I decided to apply it on my dry hair and as you can refer to the images attached, it really does make a lot of difference! Other than smelling amazing, it really does keep the hair strands looking healthier than usual.

    VERDICT

    Been using this for a week now and i must say that they have definitely won my heart!
    As a verdict, I would have to say that this hair ultra serum is very impressive. I don't usually share or talk about hair oils cause im never a fan, but after trying out Kundal's Macadamia Damaged Care Solution Ultra Serum, it has left me speechless! Who knew that there's such a thing as a hair serum to replace hair oils? After using it for a few days now, I would really recommend you consider this ultra serum if you're looking for a solution to repair damaged hair. You won't have to worry about your hair smelling oily too as this comes in a variety of fragrance that would leave your hair smelling fresh throughout the day. It is also affordable and most importantly it does what its supposed to do which makes it worth every penny spent! You can get this from Guardian stores and it retails at only RM28.00. For a product that works really well, it's definitely a good buy.
