Though it is recommended for adults aged 40+, younger adults who wishes to enhance their immunity or have a weakened immune system can consume the product as well to strengthen their immune health. 

Not all beta-glucans are the same.

With PROVITAL Immuna Plus, we can activate our immune system and confidently live our life to the fullest by continuing to be bold to do the things we want to do.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, our kids had immediate migration to online learning. They have extended time in cyberspace as compare to the times before the pandemic. Our teenagers aged 13 to 18 years old are in the high risk group coz' they are our country's future workforce. How do we prepare our kids for Digital Independence? After searching online, let me share with all of you on how I had prepared my Little Angels in an effective and yet affordable way.

The course available in English or BM and it is the ONLY online course that covers all of the main elements of Digital Citizenship. The course also support several Key Thrusts and Strategies of the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint.

Why do we need CyberWira? Some parents might ask me this and the answers are simple. We as parents find it difficult to keep up with online developments or teach our kids on best practices. CyberWira helps our teenagers to avoid online pitfalls which can hurt their future chances of a successful career. We know that the technology use cannot be avoided, therefore, we must educate our teenagers to live responsibly with it. We cannot deny that online opportunities are there for the taking and all future businesses will utilise online space. We know that personal data is the most valuable commodity of the 21st Century and it must be protected.
What criteria a CyberWira should have? A CyberWira is someone who understands how to use technology safely, responsibly and creatively to build the best online reputation. He/She understands the importance of digital security and how to keep personal data safe and secure. He/She understands the negative impact that technology can have on people's lives if used irresponsibly and the copyright and importance of respecting others works. He/she understands the differences between online and offline communication and his/her rights and responsibilities when using technology.
Why CyberWira benefits to us as parents? With CyberWira, we will feel more confident when out kids are using the internet. Our kids will be able to understand and identify the positive & negative aspects of using the internet and they will be an upstander and take action in the even of seeing cyberbullying. Our kids will be well-prepared for the challenging digital world for now and the future and they will able to critically evaluate digital content and identity fake news.
What are the benefits of the CyberWira for our Teenagers? Our teenagers will be more confident to use technology safely, responsibly and creatively to build the best online reputation. They will be able to identify danger, fake news, scams and cyberbullying in the digital world and to keep personal data secure and understand the latest online threats. They will be able to communicate effectively and reflect on promote good behavior while online and the most important is they able to stay healthy while using technology. I'm sure this is what we as parents had wanted. Yeah!!!

What are the benefits for Teachers? Teachers will be able to identify student's potential in using technology and keep them creative. They can use it as part of the main curriculum and relate it to the digital world and use it as homework, or as part of computer club. They can keep up-to-date with what their students are currently exposed to in the digital world and can be used as part of Teacher professional development. Indeed a great news to all the teachers!

Me and my Little Angels had attended the CyberWira together and there are 8 modules to be completed in order to receive CyberWira Digital Citizenship. The 8 modules are Digital Footprint & Reputation, Digital Etiquette, Digital Security, Digital Literacy, Digital Communication, Digital Health & Wellness, Digital Commerce and Digital Rights & Reponsibilites. If you ask me how long for a person to complete all the modules, it depends on individually. The fastest is 3 hours and some might take months to finish it. It all depends on your will to attend the course. 

We can view the course at laptops, tablets and mobile phones anywhere and anytime that we want. We will never feel bored attending all the modules coz' there are videos, online games, quizzes and other online elements are used in every module to keep our kids active.

Raising Money Savvy Kids with HLB Pocket Connect, a Digital Banking Technology

How to raise a financially savvy kids? We as parents can start introducing financial management and education and imparting the value of money to our children from young age but how? At this post today, let me give you some tips from a team of specialist and moms on how to raise a financially savvy kids.

Why do we need to start our kids from their very young age on financial management? The Malaysian Insolvency Department reported a startling data that youth (aged below 35 years old) bankruptcy made up to 25.2% of bankruptcy cases from 2017 to 2019 in the country which is quite alarming. Therefore, there is an urgent need to make financial literacy and education a key life skill to be taught to all Malaysians. 

How should we begin with? Just like charity begins at home, same as forming a life-long healthy relationship with money which we should begin it as early as possible. In the age of everything digital, we as parents can now leverage on digital tools to help us educate and engage our digital native children effectively to be financially-conscious and responsible.

Last 2 weeks, Mommy Jane and some parents attended Hong Leong Bank and Hong Leong Islamic Bank's webinar entitled "Raising DuitSmart Kids in a Digital Age". We can now teach our children the lifelong skill and habit to be financially savvy with HLB Pocket Connect, the first mobile banking platform for young savers in Malaysia.

What is HLB Pocket Connect? It is an interactive and personalised banking platform built for digital natives who are well acquainted with and demand hyper-personalisation, real-time gratification and highly interactive content and experiences. Available to all HLB 3-in-1 Junior Account holders, it has three proprietary features namely Earn, Save and Spend, which enable our children to learn to be financially responsible under the watchful eyes of us as parents, who are able to guide, manage and monitor our children’s pocket money and savings.

Under the Earn feature, we as parents can set tasks or goals and reward our children with extra pocket money when they complete them. Not only does this teach our children the value of hard work and earned money, it also gives them sense of achievement when they are able to meet their goals.

As the account comes with reloadable Junior Debit Card for children to Spend, we as parents can have peace of mind knowing that we can monitor and control our children’s pocket-money spending. Not only can we top-up the pocket money through seamless transfer from our HLB Connect, we can set spending limits, control where and what our children can spend on as well as monitor real-time spending of our children.

We as parents can also block or freeze the Junior Debit Card instantly if we suspect any fraudulent or improper spend, all done through our HLB Connect. To inculcate a savings habit, HLB Pocket Connect will soon have a customizable Save feature which allows our children to set their savings goals for things that they want and allowing them to track their savings through progress reports.

Zalman Zainal, Chief Marketing and Communication Officer of HLB

Zalman Zainal, Chief Marketing and Communication Officer of HLB said that they have developed HLB Pocket Connect to be simple, seamless and fun for both parents and their children to go through the journey of responsible money management in an open and transparent way. They hope this will empower our young savers to make better life and financial choices as well as build a healthy relationship and appreciation for money for their own sustainable future.

The webinar hosted by Sheahnee Iman Lee, mother-of-three, featured guests who shared their diverse experiences as parents, educators and young entrepreneurs. Among the opinions shared, all panelists agreed on one thing - financial literacy has to be taught early to form a life-long healthy relationships with money, which will enable our children to make better life decisions down the road. 

Kyle Tan, co-founder of Little Tauke, a startup that provides financial literacy education for children explains that as young as two years old, children begin to grasp basic financial concepts starting with barter through trading things with you. They are also quick to pick up our spending patterns. Her 2-year-old used to play with the ringgit notes in her wallet, but after a while he started playing with credit cards instead. Teaching our children about money as early as possible is about giving them a head start and time to practice their financial abilities before they become adults. Hence, they always encourage parents to be intentional and open about finances at home. This will help our children build consistent habits and attitudes to save and spend wisely, which is a great advantage they will carry throughout their lifetime.

Kyle Tan, co-founder of Little Tauke

Lolitta Suffian, who uses HLB Pocket Connect with her two children aged 12 and 9 shared the most important money lesson she teaches her kids is that we have to earn it by setting goals and working towards them. She also explained this is the same lesson her parents imparted to her. She said that since we as parents are the most influential people in our children’s lives as, our children observe and learn from all that we do. She practice a rewards system with her children where they earn money from good grades, chores, good behaviour and deeds. They review this every Sunday using the HLB Pocket Connect app, and she transfer the amounts her kids earned to their accounts. The app helps her children to understand the amount her children have earned and how to be wise in spending it. Building on that understanding, her children are able to inculcate smarter money management at a young age.

Lolitta Suffian, Mom of 2 kids
Claudia Tan, 23-year-old co-founder of Revive Vintage Store and a successful young entrepreneur shared that her father instilled the idea of saving money and seizing opportunities to make money work for her when she was young. Her father always encouraged her to save 20% of her ang pow money or any income rather than spend or splurge it all.  He also taught her to always look for financial opportunities to make her money grow, be it parking it in a Fixed Deposit or other banking options. She is grateful he instilled these good money habits and financial management in her from a young age. Over time, she learnt that saving is part of her investing in herself and her future. Today, it has allowed her to pursue her passions in writing and sustainable fashion, which helps diversify her income sources.
Claudia Tan, co-founder of Revive Vintage Store and a successful young entrepreneur

Another successful young entrepreneur Chai Chuan Fook, CEO of Newave Products Sdn. Bhd., on the other hand, learnt the value of money as a primary school boy through his mini enterprise venture. He obtained rare toys from the capsule vending machines found at convenience stores and sold them to classmates who were unable to visit those stores. From this venture, he learnt that money can grow with good planning and relying on the right financial experts. This is a lesson he has carried forward through to adulthood and his businesses. He also highly encourages parents to teach our children the importance planning their finances and its value from a young age. 

How to open the bank account? As a full time working Mom, HLB has made it very easy for us to to open a 3-in-1 Junior Account. We can conveniently do so by vising the Bank’s official store on Shopee (www.shopee.com.my/hongleongbank.os) anytime, anywhere. Upon “purchasing” the account, a HLB representative will be in touch and come to our house or office anytime at our convenient to assisting with the account opening process without us needing to visit any physical branches. It is indeed convenient coz' Mommy Jane had opened 3-in-1 Junior Accounts for my 4 Little Angels aged below 18 years old and 1 basic account for my eldest Little Angel who had reached 18 years old this year. The best thing is RM1 is refundable to our Shopee account and we could get 2,000 Shopee Coins now. What are you waiting for? Just purchase it from Shopee now. 

Jason, HLB officer from Jalan Ipoh branch helping Mommy Jane and Little Angels to process the applications for Hong Leong Bank's 3-in-1 Junior Account

Jason, HLB officer from Jalan Ipoh branch is a young, professional and friendly guy. He called me and made appointment with me at my own convenient to visit my home on Sunday at 3 p.m. He brought along an Ipad to registered the accounts on the spot and explained to me the process and fees for the account opening. Since I have 5 accounts to open, Jason patiently did all the opening process in 1 hour plus. On the next day which is on Monday, he visited my home again to pass the debit cards to my Little Angels and on Tuesday, he WhatsApp and email me the Shopee voucher codes and guide me to redeem the vouchers. Thank you Jason for your great services!!!

Start young and start now to raise our kids to be savvy by opening HLB Pocket Connect. After using the App for 1 week plus, my kids are more hardworking now as compared to last time. Everytime they did the housework or do the things that I told them, they will be rewarded with RM1 per job. Not much but as Malays saying "Sikit Sikit Lama Lama Jadi Bukit". We have meeting weekly and once their jobs done, Mommy Jane will transfer money through HLB online to their account and my Little Angels will feel so happy as they see their money growing weekly. They will plan what to buy next with the money that they have and will also set a side part of the money for savings. I'm indeed proud of my 5 Little Angels for their enthusiasm to save money for their future.

Duopharma Biotech's Champs® and Nasom Champions Autism Awareness Fundraiser

In conjunction with the World Autism Month, Malaysia’s largest favourite vitamin brand for children, CHAMPS® - Mother’s Choice for Champions, together with the charitable non-governmental organisation The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM), marks their fifth year in collaboration to augment nationwide awareness towards the acceptance of Autism in Malaysia this year.

CHAMPS is the established child health supplement brand from the Consumer Healthcare (CHC) arm of leading pharmaceutical company Duopharma Biotech Berhad (Duopharma Biotech). It is also my 5 Little Angels' favourite supplement from infant till their growing up period to keep them healthy and safe.

CHAMPS®-NASOM Autism Awareness campaign, themed ‘Kasihi Autisme Bersama CHAMPS®’, was graced by YB Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation where over 150 pieces of hand painted art by the autistic children were also showcased to be part of the fundraiser in support NASOM’s services and programmes.


Khairy highlighted that he and his wife personally invested in the cause to promote autism awareness and providing them access to therapy, especially helping families who cannot afford the fees. They believed that every autistic child should be acknowledged as well as nurtured to their fullest potential and lead a meaningful life.

CHAMPS® will also collaborate with Guardian Malaysia, where RM1 from the sale of every CHAMPS® Vitamin C promotion pack will be donated to NASOM throughout the month of April 2021. CHAMPS® has also contributed RM269,217.50 to NASOM throughout the years, which has advanced the industry collaboration to a new level.


Leonard Ariff Abdul Shatar, Group Managing Director of Duopharma Biotech said that they are proud to mark the momentous 5th year in collaboration with NASOM in championing the cause of creating greater autism awareness and acceptance in Malaysia. For the first time through this campaign, the artistic talents are being shined on, showcasing the art created by the autism children under NASOM’s Art Therapy Programme.

Mr Leonard further added that they are confident that the "Kasihi Autisme Bersama CHAMPS®" Autism Awareness campaign will be a catalyst to widen the support for the autism community while nurturing their talents as well as inclusivity within the society, and continue communicating themselves through art.

As we know that Autism is recognised to be one of the fastest growing conditions globally, and covers a wide range of developmental disorders in areas of social interaction and basic communication skills. One of the ways of communication that NASOM does is art therapy for autism children to help them find themselves and be able to communicate through creative expression. Art has been shown to be a highly positive intervention tool for children with autism, allowing them to freely express their thoughts and feelings.


Expressing appreciation for Duopharma Biotech’s support and contribution over the past five years, Dato’ Megat Ahmad Shahrani Megat Sharuddin, NASOM President said that they hope that through the ‘Kasihi Autisme Bersama CHAMPS®’ campaign that the public would be able to recognise these children and the ways that they communicate. Each child is different and autistic children even more so. Art in itself is a form of therapy that can not only help enrich a child’s imagination, but also improve their skills and develops their ability to interact with others. This method is especially instrumental among autism children, and with the right encouragement, they hope that these children can flourish as well as enrich the society with their creativity.

If you want look out for the master pieces of arts by NASOM’s autism children, it will be available for sale on www.dbhealth2go.com starting 8th April 2021 to 15th June 2021.  All proceeds from the sale will go towards NASOM’s cause to improve the quality of life for people with autism and their families through programmes, services, resources, knowledge and social innovation, and promoting the rights and opportunities for people with autism.


With the effort, the CHAMPS-NASOM Autism Awareness campaign has garnered the Malaysia Health and Wellness Brand Award 2017 under the Best CSR category from the Ministry of Health Malaysia. Congrats to them!!! Their digital out of home promotion is fully supported by Laguna Media & Setia Media.


Thanks to Champs and Nasom for creating awareness towards the acceptance of Autism in Malaysia. Hope more autism children will be able to access to therapy which most families could not afford it. I understand their pains and restraints especially during these Pandemic Covid-19 and with the contribution and awareness that all of us could be part of it, let us make these children and their families to have a better place to stay.
