Millennial's Guide to Parenthood Journey

Parenting journey is amazing but it is never easy. How we can become a millennial parent who gives our child a life worth living ? In order to get some helps from the expert and advisor, Mommy Jane attended the Millennial's Guide to Parenthood workshop on last Sunday which was organised by the Parenthood in collaboration with Nippon Paint Malaysia and Sunway Medical Centre that highlighted various hot topics relevant to today’s parents with our young children.
How to Manage The 5 Most Common Children’s Illnesses- the Common Cold, Hands Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD), Influenza, Diarrhoea and Dengue ? Consultant Paediatrician Dr. Cham Weng Tang who delivered the talk went in depth about the cause and effect of each of the 5 illnesses, which are common and yet preventable. He also highlighted how our walls (which are often overlooked) can be a medium of transmission of viruses and bacteria. Need to do some prevention after this to avoid all these top 5 most common illness.

How to Handle Picky Eaters and What Parents Can Do ? I'm sure this is our favourite talked amongst parents. Dietician Celeste Lau gave some tips on how to differentiate a picky eater versus a problem eater. She also shared how to handle picky eaters and how we as parents can introduce a wider variety of food selection in order for their child to thrive and grow.
After Dietician Celeste Lau talk, we had a delicious buffet lunch and a break for an hour....  
Dato’ Dr Rajbans Singh, President of Malaysian Wellness Society, spoke on the topic of Indoor Air Wellness. Our indoor air pollution can be 2 to 5 times worse than outdoors. With harmful pollutants all over the home, and in places one would never have thought off, he mentioned that this could affect our child’s health in the long term. Dato’ Dr. Rajbans also shared some steps on how we as parents can take positive steps to improve indoor wellness which starts from home. Really need to start cleaning the house now. Ha ha ha !!!
How to Bring Out The Best Potential in Your Child ? Ms. Sam Jeng Mun who is a clinical psychologist ask the parents to take some time to take an assessment that determined their type of parenting style. We were given a better understanding about our own personality. Ms. Sam also elaborated on the 4 types of parenting styles and how the particular style may affect their child mentally. Erm... Really need to change a bit on my parenting styles to suit my Little Angels' needs and for them to grow independently.

Besides from the talks by experts, the event also hosted close to 200 nominees from the Nippon Paint Wellness Colouring Contest.

EVERSOFT SKINZ, the Japanese Skincare Regime

When we look at Japanese women, they never seem to age. What is their secret ? The secret is their skincare regime and healthy green diet which credited for their flawless, firm and porcelain smooth completion. Don't feel jealous on them coz' we could have it too with timeless, youthful and flawless skin like Japanese women. At this post, I will share my review on EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth range.
For your information, EVERSOFT SKINZ launches a new anti-aging Timeless Youth range that harvests the benefits of nature using advanced Japanese technology. Packed with key plant extracts and FREE from harmful ingredients such as Paraben, Artificial Colour, Artificial Fragrance, Mineral Oil, Alcohol and Phthalates; the range is developed to encourage and maintain the infancy and plumpness of skin. If you afraid of the animals' rights, rest assure that the brand is also against animal testing and that no animals were harmed in the process of developing the products. 

Another benefit of using EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth range is all their products only contain 100% active plant extracts that help fight against the visible signs of ageing. As we know that Ume, also known as the Japanese apricot is traditionally used in Japanese medicine to soften the skin and even out skin tone. It contains anti-glycation properties that manages accelerated aging effects at the cellular level of the skin’s structure such as wrinkling, loss of elasticity, discoloration, and compromised barrier function. Another ingredient is the Wakame Seaweed which is rich in Phyto-collagen to help reduce visible wrinkles and fine lines, and Rosehip Oil, hailed prominently for its ability to reinforce the skin barrier, retain moisture, and reduce visibility of pesky dark spots. All these ingredients are essential to maintain and protect our skin.
EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth range consists of five products that fully serves their anti-aging purpose and work best when used in order. I will introduce you all the 5 products and how we should use it.

First, use their EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth Multi-Corrective Cleaning Foam to removes impurities, eliminates harmful pollutants and maintains skin moisture. This cleansing foam is soap-free, pH balanced, and gentle on the skin. After using it, our skin will remains smoother and supple.  


After cleansing, then put some EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth Multi-Corrective Toning Lotion to provides 2x instant hydration, 24-hour moisture lock, refines pores, and promotes a resilient skin barrier for skin hydration from within. It is water-based lotion which is lightweight and quickly absorbed into our skin.

After toning, then tap our face and around our eyes with EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth Multi-Corrective Replumping Repair Serum to plump up our wrinkles for smoother and firmer skin within 3 days. Its non-oily, swift absorbing, and velvety touch features are specially made to boost collagen production, visibly reduce wrinkles, strengthening the skin barrier, and preventing moisture loss.

For night time, do apply EVERSOFT SKINZ Timeless Youth Multi-Corrective Night Solution to treat and repair our damaged skin with this non-sticky water-based night moisturizer after a long day of being exposed to harmful environmental factors such as pollutants, humid temperature, and dry air conditioning. Besides that, daily work stress is also a contributing factor to aging skin. The best thing which I love most is the night moisturiser will retains our skin moisture for up to 12 hours and delays further skin aging. I could feel that my skin is more smooth, pore-less, bouncy and with a firm skin after using it.

Cupcakes Decoration Workshop at Collins Kitchen Lab

Year end School Holiday is approaching soon. Any plan for your kids ? If your kids love to cook, bake and decorate their food, then register them at Collins Kitchen Lab for their school holiday programme. At this post, I will share me and my Little Angels experience in decoration of Cupcakes workshop on last weekend at Collins Kitchen Lab.
Collins Kitchen Lab is a cosy teaching studio located in the heart of Mont' Kiara. Founded by Ms Frances Voon of Little Collins KL and now, Collins Kitchen Lab, they have a variety of workshops from basic to advance and from food to art. The teaching studio is versatile for small to medium size groups. The mini workshop space is a bright and airy space perfect for mini workshops that are intimate and the main Kitchen Lab is equipped for a demo session, video recording or classes. We had our cupcakes decoration workshop at the main Kitchen Lab where 10 Mums and 12 kids are involved.
Ms Frances Voon, founder of Collins Kitchen Lab
The 1st session started with kids decorating their cupcakes using buttercream and some candies. For kids above 7 years old like WT who is 10 years old, he able to decorate it independently after received guidance from Teacher Frances and for kids below 7 years old, Moms have to help out before the kids mess it up. Ha ha ha !!!
Happy face of the kids and Moms decorating the cupcakes together
The boys enjoyed decorating their cupcakes too
The kids session started at 12.45 p.m. and finished at 1.15 p.m. Their way of doing it much easier than adult. Just put the buttercream on top of their cupcakes to make a mini-floral cupcakes and then sprinkled some candies on top of the cream to make it colourful. The decoration of the cupcakes are not only fun, it is delicious too. All the kids love to eat the chocolaty cake and of course the cream and the candies on top too.

While our kids enjoy eating their own decorated cupcakes outside the main kitchen, it is Mommies time now to decorate the cupcakes. Teacher Frances had baked all the delicious chocolate cupcakes before hand and our mission is just to decorate the cupcakes. Instructions and photos of the cupcakes were printed in a piece of paper for each Mom and place it on top of the table. The decoration utensils and drinking water were also prepared on each table. Each table could accommodate 2 to 4 Moms. Since there are 4 big tables. Each table seated 2 to 3 Moms.
All Mommies listen tentatively and record all the steps taught by Frances for reference

Teacher Frances gave us a briefing on how we should decorate our cupcakes. Once the first step done, she will call us to go in front to learn another step so that we won't feel confuse and we could do it right. Let me brief you the steps to decorate the cupcakes. It looks simple but if we miss out 1 of the step, then our cupcakes will not turn out as what we wanted it to be.
Me and Syafiera sharing the same table
The first step is to cut the excessive layer of cake to flattened it for all the 6 cupcakes and then layered the cake with some delicious chocolate sauce. Once done, chilled it at the fridge for the chocolates to harden for half an hour. 
We are spreading our cupcakes with chocolate sauce to layer it
While waiting for our chocolates to harden, we proceed to work with our fondant to decorate our cupcakes. Fondant is a sweet paste usually used as an icing for cakes. Knead the fondant into a ball like bread dough to get softer and smoother. Then designed the fondant using knife and kitchen utensils as creative as you want. 
With the help from our kids, we made the fondant
Teacher Frances will walk around to ensure we use the right technique to flattened our fondant
Once done and when our cupcakes chocolate already hardened, then spread some sugar on top of the cupcakes so that it could stick our fondant. We put the base fondant on top of the cupcakes and then spread some sugar to stick the fondant design that we had made on top of the fondant. Decorating the cupcakes need lots of patience and luckily my 2 boys able to complete this task. Ha ha ha !!! 


Collins Kitchen Lab Workshop is suitable for kids 5 years and above and for adults too. While Mommies learn how to bake, cook and decorate, our kids able to join too. For daddies and other siblings, they could wait at the cafe downstairs to enjoy their food and have me-time while Mommy and Little Angel could have some bonding times. My Little Angels definitely enjoyed the cupcakes decoration session.
We could customised our cupcake with our name too. The pen ink is eadible

Finally, put the decorated cupcakes into a box to bring it home to share with family and friends
