The unveiling of this particular research project on sun bears shows reflects the development of conservation educational programs between Sunway Lagoon and Sunway University. 

Sun Bear

All Asian bears are threatened by habitat loss and poaching for body parts that are commercially valuable for traditional Asian medicine and cuisine. 

The collaboration between the university and Sunway Lagoon is to create greater awareness among visitors of the problems faced by sun bears and to inspire action that will help to conserve our unique native wildlife.

Sun Bear info

There are two subspecies of sun bears in Malaysia, the Malayan subspecies (Helarctos malayanus malayanus) is found in Peninsular Malaysia and the Bornean subspecies (Helarctos malayanus euryspilus) is found in Borneo. It is relatively difficult to differentiate between subspecies based on physical characteristics, although Bornean sun bears are smaller on average; therefore, research on the species’ phylogeny is important. Sun bears are listed as Totally Protected Wildlife under the Second Schedule of our Wildlife Conservation Act 2010.

Dr. Shyamala collaborates with Dr. Jactty Chew, a faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences, Sunway University. They’ve obtained funding from Sunway University, Lancaster University, and three years of funding from the International Association for Bear Research and Management (IBA) Grant for their research on landscape characteristics and population genetic structure of Sun bears in Malaysia.

One of the projects aims to assess genetic variation of sun bears in Malaysia, and Sunway Lagoon is pleased to contribute genetic samples from the sun Bear in the wildlife park. Together with other samples offered by PERHILITAN (Department of Wildlife and National Park) and BSBCC (Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre), the first study to evaluate genetic divergence between peninsula and Bornean subspecies has been made possible.

BabyCon 3.0 Bring The World’s Best Baby Products And Brands To Malaysia For Parents And Kids!

Malaysia’s leading business-to-business baby product convention, BabyCon, is kicking off its third edition with a impressive range of cutting-edge baby brands in tow and the chance for baby product retailers to connect with international industry speakers and reputable distributors.

Dubbed BabyCon 3.0, the new and improved convention will be held from 9am to 6pm on the 5th of October at The Starling Mall in Damansara Utama, offering attendees the chance to get up close and personal with distributors representing more than 50 baby brands, collectively showcasing the most recent innovations in the baby product space.

The convention is organised by the Baby Product Assocation of Malaysia (BPAM). The association counts some of the country’s biggest retailers and distributors amongst its members and provides members various benefits including special booth rates at international conventions and access to a network of business support services, while also catering a proven platform in BabyCon to drive awareness and boost sales.

Says Tze-Co Gwei, CEO of BPAM: “BabyCon is our flagship event and we are proud that, during the last edition of the event, our exhibitors amassed a total of RM3 million in sales within one day! This is proof that the platform we have created is indeed valuable in assisting our members and growing the industry as a whole”.

Fittingly, BabyCon is being endorsed by YB Hannah Yeoh, the Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development. As Guest of Honour for the convention, YB Hannah Yeoh will witness the echange of a Memorandum of Understanding between BPAM and OrphanCare Foundation (OCF), a local charity which is doing critical work in transitioning children institutionalised in orphanages to family and community-based care, while providing unplanned, at-risk, newborn babies the joy and benefits of growing up in a family.

Under the partnership, BPAM and OCF will explore the possibilities of jointly funding work and projects to raise awareness of institutionalised children and at-risk newborn babies to the public, private sector, MPs and local government. 

The two organisations will also look at ways for local organisations and community groups with an interest in the cause to lend their support as well.

In addition, BPAM is also supporting OCF’s baby hatch programme, whereby hatches have been set up nationwide to provide a second chance for babies who are unwanted or whose parents cannot afford to take of them. 

Under the programme, babies left at the hatch are handed over to couples who are registered for the adoption process carried out by the foundation, thus providing babies with a way out of insitutional upbringing and a chance at a family-based upbringing.

Celebrity stardust will also be present at BabyCon 3.0 thanks to Wong Chui Ling, a well known TV and radio host, who will be part of the panel of judges for the IBUENCER Awards

As the first-of-its-kind in the baby industry, the IBUENCER Awards recognises Malaysian mummy influencers who have used their social media power for good, whether by helping other mothers through their parenting challenges or recommending trustworthy baby products and brands. Winners will receive a share of RM50,000 worth of baby products.

Thank You readers for your support and glad that you found #MouseMommyTreats blog is practical and provide useful information in parenting for parents and kids. 

Mouse mommy was feeling blessed and appreciate so much for being awarded Top 10 BPAM IBUENCER Award 2018! Thank YOU!  

All in all, retailers and distributors can look forward to the most complete baby product convention to ever come to Malaysia. 

Apart from a wide range of brands and offerings, a focus on quality means that attendees will almost certainly find a suitable range of products which can bring their business to the next level. More photos can click here to view Album 1 | Album 2 | Album 3 | Album 4 | Album 5 | Album 6

BPAM’s top priority is to develop its own BPAM Code of Practice in tandem with the government. The aim of the Code of Practice is to define and standardize baby product regulations within Malaysia to safeguard the welfare of babies while protecting the business interests of retailers and distributors.

My Children Blending Adventure With Philips Viva Collection Blender!

Recently we are having hot weather, MR and baby MH requested to have ice-blended drinks. In Malaysia’s intense tropical heat, cold drinks are always in demand. From a young age, our children have enjoyed the cool relief that an iced drink offers on the hottest days. While they typically consume chilled cordial drinks or mass-produced juices, there are concerns about the sugar content of these drinks, with nutritionists recommending that children reduce consumption of such sweetened drinks[1].

Mouse mommy got a new blender helper - Philips Viva Collection Blender that comes with Duravita Tritan Jar that 20x stronger, not easily break off. Cool! That is my concern eventually whenever MR and baby MH eager to be my little kitchen helpers. My kids love to touch, explore, curious and experience together to see how the things works! Headache ya sometimes….

The first impression that mouse mommy loves this Philips Viva Collection Blender with Duravita Tristan Jar is the suction cup at the base of the blender, it is strong and able to keep the blender stay still on the table. Mouse mommy was feeling safe to allow my kids to operate on the blender itself.

Besides that, this blender is also easy to operate and easy to clean up. There are a control knob that in pulse setting mode for ice crushing and speed setting from minimum to maximum. User-friendly and child-friendly too!

The Duravita Tristan Jar is large with 1250mls capacity with 20x stronger the Tristan jar material that allows mouse mommy worried-free when my kids are handling the blender. Eventually mouse mommy was quite reluctant to allow MR and baby MH to “help out” in blending works, as in experience before that my kids accidentally drop their water bottles and blender jar, as a result break off and unable to use anymore, got to fork out money to buy a new one. Sad… sad…

This round, mouse mommy was happy to let MR and baby MH to be the little Chefs to make their ice-blended drinks. MR love orange and wanted to make orange milk smoothies. Baby MH loves apple. Hahaha… my little baby cannot wait for his turn and start chewing on the apple itself. 

Mouse mommy always allows kids to Learn Life Today. Explore, experiment and experience life together to allow children can learn how things works and the science behind it.

MR was helping to peeling off the orange skin before putting in to the blender jar. This is able to train the children motor function. While peeling off the orange skin, MR also told mouse mommy that the orange aroma smells good. He was wanted to blend two units of orange with ice, milk and honey.

First of all, MR and baby MH putting in ice cubes, honey and milk, use pulse setting mode for ice crushing. The ice blending required adequate fluid in order to works well. Do not put too much of water too, as in the outcome will be too watery.

Once the ice cubes turn to small in size, MR is putting in the orange to blend it together. Recommended to peel the orange and section by hand before put into blender jar for easy blending.

Baby MH was busy to help to blend the orange milk smoothies. He is enjoying the blending session with brother MR.

After orange milk smoothies done, they are quickly go and get their favourite The Bare Bear cup to fill up with their yummy smoothies! OMG! MR and baby MH were enjoying the orange milk smoothies that done by them. Finished!

We love the texture and the taste of the orange milk smoothie. It is smooth and all the ice cubes are fully blended. Yummy, healthy and nutritious fruit smoothies drink that we can make it on our own! Last but not least, boys, you got to help in cleaning too. MR and baby MH also help to clean up the table. Good boys!

Mr Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Country Manager of Philips Malaysia also shared that “Food preparation can be a fun way for parents to bond with children, besides teaching them about nutrition and training them to be handy in the kitchen – definitely a useful life skill. Routine kitchen tasks such as blending ingredients can become an exciting adventure when you have an extraordinary tool to use. With the Philips Viva Collection Blender, you can get creative and have a lot of fun making healthy and refreshing smoothies. Its highly durable and shatterproof Duravita Tritan jar frees you from worry even if the kids are helping. There’s no fear of having to replace the blender jar if it is accidentally knocked over.”

Other that using fresh fruits, delicious frozen smoothie by frozen fruits could just be the thing that hits the spot. No more difficult to prepare at home, this all-in-one blender that efficiently combines all ingredients and crushes ice speedily to make the perfect frozen smoothie in no time at all, and we can complete control of all ingredients to boot. Awesome!

Since this Philips Viva Collection Blender with Duravita Tristan Jar can make nice and smooth fruit smoothies, mouse mommy also would like to make baby food by using it. Mouse mommy has prepare rice, chicken, vegetables and potato to blend together with cool boiled water.

After that can put in breastmilk bottle and keep in the freezer, recommended to be consumed within 1 to 2 days. This is some tips from mouse mommy that hope that benefit to mommies with baby above 4 months old and start to weaning and consume solid food.

Mouse mommy also a working mom and understand that food preparation for our baby is not an easy task. The earlier that our kids explore to more foods, vegetables and fruits with different texture and taste. The more likely they will be easily accepted the wide range of food taste and do not become picky eater. Therefore, mouse mommy will blend the food that we are having and put in the breastmilk bottle and keep in the freezer.

The next day, mouse mommy will send chilled breastmilks together with frozen baby blend food to nanny house. Nanny was only required to warm up to the frozen baby blend food for about 30 minutes and directly served from the bottle itself. Clean and hygiene technique is to avoid food contamination issue. Hope helpful tips for mommies especially working mom.

The Philips Viva Collection Blender HR2157/91 is enhanced with blades that use ProBlend 5 technology, enabling you to crush ice 20% faster compared to other blenders. This means you no longer have to use tough, knuckle-cracking methods like hammering or pounding to break up blocks of ice. What’s better, this blender comes with the Duravita Tritan jar, made of copolyester that adds strength, versatility and flexibility to the jar. With this added element, the blending jar is shatterproof and will not smell or stain, leaving it easily washable and as good as new after every wash. It can also withstand the pressure and velocity of blending solid ingredients such as ice and hard types of vegetables or fruits.
