On top of expecting our first child in September, I am now being rewarded with a ‘salary’ for the rest of my life! With this prize, I will be able to fulfil my parents’ lifelong dream of going on a pilgrimage to Mecca and ensure that my family can live comfortably. I am also very grateful to nominate PERTIWI. It is a cause close to my heart as the charity encourages a sense of unity. This is all the more important as we live in Malaysia which is such a diverse country, and PERTIWI helps people regardless of race and religion.”

JennOrtho Foot Care And Joint Care Expert

If you have knee pain, foot pain or back pain, it is good to get your feet checked because the problem could be related to your feet. Many people think they have normal feet because they can walk normally but it is always good to get your feet checked. Some people have severe flat, flat feet, normal, high arch or pronated feet. You are lucky if you have normal feet. I found out that I have slightly higher arch feet on both my feet. If you want to get your feet checked for free, come to JennOrtho at S-011, 2nd floor Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur.

Biomechanical machine to check your feet

JennOrtho is Asia's leading provider of individually designed 3D custom medical orthotics. 3D custom medical orthotics are shoe inserts manufactered from a cast impression of your feet and worn inside your shoes. You can also get ready made foot insoles here if you have a lower budget. 

JennOrtho offers a wide range of stylish shoes for kids and adults. I was impressed with all the shoe colors and designs. They are so stylish and comfortable.

Dato Dr. Edmund Lee, (renowned Podiatric Biomechanics expert in Asia) can explain your feet condition from your printed foot analysis report after you get your feet checked using their high technology biomechanical machine.

This is my feet report. I have slightly higher arch for both feet. My weight distribution is mostly on my front and heel, so I may get heel pain or knee pain later in life. I was advised to wear shoes with support on the high arch area.

It is advisable to bring children here to get their feet checked because it is easier for children below 12 years old to correct their feet problem by using insoles and good shoes to give better support on their feet. I love the children's shoe designs here.

Here's a video of my experience at JennOrtho.

If you go shopping at Mid Valley Megamall with your family, do drop by to JennOrtho to get your family's feet checked for free.

Maxxholo - The Importance Of Hologram Stickers In Business

For business owners, it is not easy to prevent counterfeit products these days. Many products are easily copied and produced without genuine licenses. When this happens, your company's image will be tarnished and you could lose lots of money in your business. Don't worry as Maxxholo company is here to solve this security problem. 

Maxxholo is the right company to look for when you want security for your business. Maxxholo provides a full range of products and services in the form of high-quality security features such as hologram stickers, security labels, specialized product packaging and app developments for businesses in Malaysia. Using their security features can help maintain your company's brand image, prevent counterfeiting and improve product traceability throughout the supply chain. 

Some of the products that Maxxholo provides are hologram stickers, temper evident labels, destructive warranty void stickers, anti-counterfeiting packaging, cash voucher printing and WowChecker (Authentication System). 

Hologram Stickers

If you are producing business products, you might be wondering if authentic hologram stickers are really that important. Well, I can assure you the answer is 'Yes' because each holographic label contains a unique identification hidden inside the hologram and it cannot be copied by scanners, printers or photocopiers. Fraudsters will have a tough time duplicating these hologram stickers and usually they will avoid imitating these products with authentic hologram stickers. 

2D & 3D Hologram Stickers
There are a few types of hologram stickers. The most common types used in the marketplace are the 2D & 3D hologram stickers. They are made by placing one image behind another with visual depth to lend the effect of a multi-dimensional hologram arrangement. These stickers provide good security benefits against fraudsters.

Dot Matrix
Another popular hologram sticker is the Dot Matrix. This is a more advanced level of hologram printing service compared to 2D and 3D printing, as the Dot Matrix process utilises laser beam and computer-controlled engraving that is made up of many little dots. Each dot contains a different diffraction grating. The security level for Dot Matrix hologram ticket printing is higher than 2D and 3D printing.

Top Level Holographic Label
Top level holographic label is the highest level of hologram printing service with tight security features similar to bank note printing. This technique produces clear-cut authentic hologram stickers that are extremely difficult to imitate, making their security level the strictest and the most effective among the other hologram sticker printing techniques. 

Hologram Stickers with QR Codes
Hologram stickers with QR Codes are widely used among many brands internationally. This type of hologram ticket printing provides a unique identity to the product, which helps maintain the data electronically through different spacing and width of parallel lines.

Holographic Foil Stickers 
Holographic foil stickers feature a thin plastic sheet printed with highly customisable holographic images. These hologram stickers are commonly used for certificates, documents, vouchers, member cards, packaging and labels.

Holographic foil printing makes use of heat, pressure and time to transfer colour from a foil to an object. A single image is captured from a variety of angles, which are then moved onto the foil to produce a 3D effect upon the flat surface. 

If preventing counterfeit products is really important for your business, please visit Maxxholo WEBSITE or FACEBOOK to find out more information.

Home Sanitizing With Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant

As we are currently in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, hygiene is very important. Recently I came across the Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant from Kleenso Resources which is a Malaysian-based manufacturer and distributor of the Kleenso and Pesso brand of household cleaning and pest repellant solutions, car care products and eco-disposable wares. Established in 2003, it has a rapidly growing portfolio of products and solutions, coupled with an extensive distribution network. Kleenso Resources products and solutions are marketed across the country and exported to over 12 countries.

I find that the Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant is very useful because it is formulated to kill 99.9% of germs. It is developed using pH neutral compounds, making it suitable for use on surfaces in the kitchen and dining areas.

Germs refers to microscopic bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa that can cause disease. They are active in areas with organic matter, salt and visible soil. Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces can effectively remove them, therefore preventing and reducing the spread of disease.

To use, spray Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant onto the surface to disinfect and wipe the surface clean with a cloth after 10 minutes.

Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant comes in two sizes, the 500ml which comes with a nozzle spray for convenience and the 4L size. I have the 500ml size with me and I use it on door knobs, children's bicycle and scooter handles, children's toys, when soaking my clothes and also mixing it with floor liquid cleaner when mopping the floor.

When using it on floors, pour 1 cup of Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant to 4 litres of water.

Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant uses Benzalkonium Chloride, a chemical compound that is proven to be highly effective against all kinds of bacteria such as E. Coli, Salmonella and Listeria, as well as most viruses including measles, influenza and rabies. Benzalkonium Chloride is used as the active ingredient in surface cleaning solutions developed by most commercial brands worldwide.

Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant does not contain alcohol and is designed for general and daily use. Disinfectants with high alcohol content are designed for use in critical areas such as hospitals. Due to the corrosive characteristics of these chemical compounds, they are recommended to be used only by trained personnel, wearing protective equipment such as gloves. These disinfectants are costly and prohibited from being sold online as they are highly flammable. External lab tests conducted on Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant reveals that when it is applied on surfaces containing 94 different groups of germs, it successfully eliminated all of these germs. This proves the effectiveness of the Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant.

Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant is not recommended for use on soft vinyl, varnished surfaces or aluminium. For use on paint works, it is recommended that the disinfectant is tested by applying it on a small area of the paint work first.

Kleenso Kills Germs Disinfectant can be purchased from the Kleenso Online Store, as well as local retailers including Parkson, MR DIY, TF Mart and Family Store. Hope you get yours soon for your home hygiene.
