Red Seal Natural Toothpaste


Most people do not know the ingredients of the toothpaste they use and some parents get worried when their young children accidentally swallow their toothpaste while brushing their teeth. With Red Seal Natural toothpaste, you do not need to worry because all their ingredients are natural without harmful chemicals such as parabens, fluoride, artificial coloring and triclosan.


This product is all the way from New Zealand and replaces those chemicals with more natural herbal extracts and essential oils like eucalyptus, aniseed and peppermint. The combination of the ingredients makes the toothpaste highly alkaline, creating an environment discouraging the growth of bacteria.


One example of a unique natural ingredient is from Totara tree, a native of New Zealand. Totarol Oil is a naturally occurring plant extract that comes from recycled Totara. Totara is a natural alternative for reducing bad bacteria in our mouth.

Red Seal has been in the market since 1923 from New Zealand and has now expanded to Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia.


There are a total of 5 varieties :

1) Natural Toothpaste - suitable for the whole family.
2) Natural SLS Free Toothpaste which is gentle on the mucosa layer & suitable for those who wear teeth braces.
3) Baking Soda Toothpaste is a natural teeth whitener and removes coffee / tea stains.
4) Propolis Toothpaste is 100% bee propolis with antiseptic and antibacterial properties ideal for sufferers of gingivitis and sensitive gums.
5) Kids Toothpaste is enhanced with real bananas and peach flavors.

Red Seal Toothpastes are available at Caring Pharmacy nationwide and the price range is between RM 18.70 to RM 28.20. For more information, please visit WEBSITE or their FACEBOOK.

My Family Trip To Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto and Wakayama, Japan - part 2

To read part 1 of my family trip to Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto and Wakayama, Japan, please click HERE.

After breakfast at FP Hotel South Namba, we visited Arashiyama Bamboo Grove which is one of the popular attractions in Kyoto. It was an amazing experience standing among all these thick bamboo stalks and breathing the fresh morning air. 





Another popular attraction is the Kinkaku-ji Temple (The Golden Pavilion) which is registered as a World Heritage Site. Gold foil on lacquer covers the upper two levels of Kinkaku and a shiny phoenix stands on top of the roof. This temple looks very beautiful with its reflection on the pond.



After our stroll at the gardens of Kinkaku-ji Temple, we had a simple lunch.



Then we visited Gion which is one of the most well known Geisha districts in Japan. This was my favorite place because of the beautiful architecture of the buildings and tourists were seen dressed in traditional costumes. There were lots of food stalls and souvenir shops here.





My son ringing the bell to make a wish.




At night, we walked to some restaurants nearby our hotel and I was impressed with the restaurant exterior decorations and lightings. There were very colorful and beautiful.






My son enjoying his ramen noodle.

After having our dinner, we walked back to the hotel and slept early because we planned to visit Universal Studios Japan early the next day. We were all very excited especially the kids. To read my blog post about our trip to Universal Studios Japan, click HERE

On our last day of our trip, we visited Wakayama Castle. This beautiful castle serves as a symbol of the Wakayama City and its tower offers a great view of the whole town.


We also visited Kuroshio Market where we watched a man cut a whole tuna with a very sharp knife. 


We ate very fresh seafood here for lunch. It was my first time eating very tasty crab meat. I love the food here.


We visited the breath taking Sandanbeki Rock Cliff which was really beautiful. Seeing the raging waves striking the cliffs and the cool breeze blowing onto my face was exciting and memorable.



My family and I enjoyed our trip to Japan very much. We loved the scenery, food and their culture. We would love to visit again someday. Hope you enjoyed reading my blog post.

My Family Trip To Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto and Wakayama, Japan - part 1


I have been to Tokyo when I was a little girl and I have wanted to visit Japan again after so many years. So I planned a family trip to Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto and Wakayama. We went in March during the spring time and the weather was very cool and nice. We took the Air Asia flight and followed a tour group. Even though it was a short 6 days 4 nights trip, we were happy to visit many interesting places including Universal Studios Japan.



On our first day, we visited Hakutsuru Sake Factory which is a brewery housed in an old warehouse. Hakutsuru Sake Brewing is located in the Nada district of Kobe, a leading sake production center known throughout Japan. This area has high quality spring water and cold winters which are ideal for brewing sake. This place is like a museum that illustrates the different stages of the brewing process with life-size models. There was also sake wine tasting for tourists.



Our next stop was Kobe Mount Rokko where there was an observation deck for a breathtaking panoramic view of Osaka Bay. I loved the scenic view very much.




We had a delicious meal for lunch and I realized that Japanese food is usually saltier than Malaysian food but the taste was good.


After our lunch, we went to nearby shops for some shopping. We saw lots of cute Rilakkuma and Hello Kitty souvenirs, bags and plushies.







After our shopping, we visited Osaka Castle which is one of Japan's most famous landmarks and it played a major role in the unification of Japan during the 16th century of the Azuchi-Momoyama period.



To see the Osaka Castle, we needed to walk a distance through a beautiful garden. We were lucky to see cherry blossom flowers blooming even though it was in March. We were so happy the cherry blossoms bloomed earlier this year.



These were other beautiful flowers that captured my attention.

In the late evening, we headed to Shinsaibashi-Suji Shopping Street for some shopping. This is located in the heart of Osaka. There were lots of department stores, souvenir and fashion shops. Free Wi-Fi is available along Shinsaibashi-Suji Shopping Street.




We did not buy much here because our Malaysian currency was low and most things seem to be expensive after the conversion. We could probably get similar things in Malaysia at a lower price. So it was mostly window shopping.


After a tired day, we had delicious steamboat dinner and checked into FP Hotel South Namba for a good rest. For part 2 of my blog post, click HERE. To read my Universal Studios Japan post, click HERE. Thanks for reading.

Vanguard comics, Akira Ito’s hot-stamped signature. An exclusive PR pack consisting of alternate illustrations for the cards “Gallatin” and “Nehalem” will also be given to players with every purchase of the two trial decks while stocks last. Fans of the trading card game will also be able to feast on the new illustrations of selected units.

Bio-Oil - Specialist Skincare Oil


Every woman knows the beauty of pregnancy when she becomes pregnant but there is also fear of stretch marks and other scars that comes along with the birth of her baby. Men or women who have lost a lot of weight worry about stretch marks. Well, you need not worry because there is Bio-Oil which helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, aging skin, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone. Bio-Oil is a multipurpose specialist skincare product that has won 223 skincare awards for its effectiveness.



Recently, Bio-Oil Malaysia celebrated Mothers’ Day in May with their campaign titled #sheisremarkable. This is an offshoot of Bio-Oil’s year-long 2018 campaign #iamremarkable, which celebrates the milestones in a woman’s life, especially the most meaningful events, like having a baby, and having the experience of becoming a mother enrich the relationship with one’s own mother.

The celebration was kicked off with a video entitled Remarkable Love, showcasing the unique bond between Yasmin Hani and her mother. It revolves around when she just gave birth who has just given birth. In her musings, she flashes back to the time when she was pregnant and her relationship with her own mother.



This campaign is followed with a Facebook contest, where fans of Bio-Oil post snapshots with their mothers. Eleven pairs of Bio-Oil products are up for grabs in conjunction with Bio-Oil’s 11 th year anniversary in Malaysia.

Bio-Oil is also running a contest until the end of June whereby with purchase of Bio-Oil 60ml, you can stand a chance to win a studio photoshoot and makeover session of you and your loved ones. Our journey is an ever changing one and thus Bio-Oil encourages everyone out there, regardless what stage they’re at, to capture the moment and savour the memories.

#sheisremarkable is not only about celebrating oneself as a woman, but to highlight the support received from meaningful relationships with others. Not only can Bio-Oil assist a woman in looking and feeling her best, but it amplifies the joy in being able to share this with others.

“Mother’s love is true love – the purest form of love there is. It is protective and self-sacrificing and wants the best for her daughter. Conversely, a daughter’s love for her mother is irreplaceable. Even though the bond may be complex and fraught with difficulties, at the end of the day there is no other love like the love between a mother and daughter. Pregnancy and giving birth helps to seal the bond between a grown up daughter and her mother, as she is finally in a position to empathise with what her mother went through in carrying and giving birth to her and caring for her. Bio-Oil is an ideal oil to salve and seal that bond, because it can be used to prevent and treat stretch marks, as well as to treat ageing lines,” says Ms. Low Hooi Wan, Business Unit Manager of Bio-Oil Malaysia. “It is truly a product that can be passed down from generations to generations.”
