The New Disney Junior Series - Sheriff Callie's Wild West



There is a new cat in town on Monday, February 24th at 1pm, and thereafter everyday at 1pm.  The cat name Callie, a Calico cat sheriff who keeps the peace in her frontier town of Nice and Friendly Corners using her magic lasso and cowgirl know-how. Both myself and B watched the first episode at home on Monday and it finally attract her to sit down and watched a full episode of a cartoon! (yes, B seldom really want to watch cartoon or kiddies series).  She says the cat very cute! For me, I like the voice of Callie (by Mandy Moore).



This series taught about love, forgiveness, keeping peace and so forth living in a neighbourhood.  Callie has a group of friends, Deputy Peck (by Disney's High School Musical, Lucas Grabeel) and B adores Toby, a sweet-natured cactus sidekick of Callie (by Jessica DiCicco - Disney's Gravity Falls).  





As this is like a 'cowboy' show, the backdrop is set against a colourful Old West and the music in the series are also very nice.  Each episode will have two memorable original songs that highlight and enhance the story. With a thematic emphasis on country-western tunes, the series pays homage to classic Western films and cowboy musical revues with songs including ‘We're Gonna Clean up This Town’ and ‘The Cowgirl Twirl’. An adorable trio of singing prairie dogs pops up to perform little ditties throughout each episode, emphasizing the lessons that are being introduced and providing a comedic transition between scenes.

Oh not forgetting the pink skunk in that picture by the name of Priscilla Skunk.  She is one that had B laughed her heart out that day when we watched on Monday.  As the airtime is when we are both out of the house, we will come back to catch the series later in the evening.  It's a good time we spent, and B is enjoying this for now.

So Daddy & Mommy, if you got time and having Disney Junior (ASTRO Channel 613) at home, do tune in for this series.  


Sheriff Callie's Wild West was created by Denis Morella and George Evelyn and developed for television by Holly Huckins, the team behind Disney's ‘Higglytown Heroes’. Morella, Evelyn and Huckins also serve as executive producers. The composers are Michael Turner and Mike Himelstein (Disney's ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’). The series is a production of W!LDBRAIN Entertainment, a DHX Media company, in association with Disney Junior.

My first experience with FIR

FIR don't stand for the singer group from Taiwan, but FIR stands for Far-Infra-Red!  I've seem some written article about FIR since I joined one of this group in FB, and it's really bring out the curiosity out of me.  There is the one particular 'brand' that is giving out 1st trial costing only RM9.90, and they recently opened a branch in Damansara Perdana (DP).  If you already know what I'm talking, then YES, it's the My FIR Wellness!  

I booked my slot last Saturday, and I was actually quite excited about it.  Knowing that FIR has got good 'result' in better health, I am eager to try out.  This afternoon, after Princess classes (yes, read CLASSES), I drove to DP and arriving there half an hour later.  My FIR Wellness was just after the Jaya Grocer in DP, and you won't miss the big turning left into the shop lots.  Of course, not forgetting the 'best' landmark when you see the 7-E just next to it! It's ample parking, and no hassle in finding a good shaded place to park my car.  I just loved places like this which I don't have the hassle to look for parking!

I walked in and was welcomed by Mummy Julz (owner of My FIR Wellness)!  She is a friendly lady, and was explaining to me what the whole treatment about, and also what should I be expecting from it.  Also, she did not just 'praise' the treatment, but telling me there are people who find it unsuitable due to their medical condition and such.  So, at least, it's a truthful business person and not just any sales concern lady.  iLike!

MJ also reminded me that I must take in Calcium supplement before entering the FIR room, and she even prepared it for those who didn't had it.  Very kind of her for charging a fair charges RM4 for 2 tablets) for those who didn't had the supplement earlier.  MJ explained that besides the removal of toxic in our body during the FIR treatment, we will also lose out Calcium, Magnesium and some minerals too, therefore a supplement is required.  Also, she explained that Skin being the 'biggest' organ in toxic expelling organ, but one that uses the least in our body.  So, FIR is to also uses this big organ to help us detox by making us SWEAT!

Long story cut short, MJ did my body scan, which has my weight, body fat, water, and other important 'factors' noted before I was usher into the FIR room.  No sharing of the details, but in the end of the treatment, I lost something, and I gain something.. guess what? hahaha...

When in the FIR room, I was provided with alkaline water to keep myself hydrating, and also books to read.  They have speakers in the FIR room, and you may bring your own MP3 to put your own music.  NICE!  I enjoyed myself in the room, while Princess waiting outside for me to finish.  For me, it's never enough, but for Princess, she keep asking how long more for her to wait.. LOL!

My after treatment was good.. feeling lighter and fresh, and came home had early dinner before I head to bed.

On Sunday, I have no problem getting up for church (in mind) but my dear Princess decided that she want to skip that and will go only next week.. hmmm.. so, we thought OK, let's go next week and no more excuses!  I'm going to book my 2nd treatment, and will come back and blog more (with pictures this time)!

*no picture for this post was due to the excitement of getting to My FIR Wellness, and I left my camera at home!  

Pledge an Act of Softness and Show your Loved Ones How much you Care! Kleenex® brings you a whole new way to Share the Softness



This is my little precious girl, whom had grown up well.  A gem in my heart, and she will be always one that close to my heart!
   
The cheeky one, putting the Kleenex pillow on her hand (she says it’s like those Qing Princess putting their hand in the sleeve) 

and 
 on her feet (coz she says it’s like being plastered).  OK, too much of the recent HK drama effect..

Being a mum, I tried my best to give her what I can afford, and what I think is best, always, materially or even emotionally.  I know I’ve always been ‘fast snap’ with her, therefore sometimes, when she gets into my nerve, a few sentences of unnecessary ‘lecturing’ cannot be avoided.  

Recently, there is a contest going on to ‘Pledge’ an act of softness and win great prizes by Kleenex.  The Kleenex® Share the Softness campaign will run from 20 November 2013 till 15 January 2014 and aims to achieve 5,000 pledges, upon which Kleenex® will spread the softness to the underprivileged children of the Fugee School with a cash donation of RM10,000. Through this campaign, Malaysians will be reminded to bring softness into each other’s lives, and also to the lives of needy children in the Fugee School, a non-profit charity organisation that provides basic education to refugee children from Somalia.

All I need to do is just simply log on using my Facebook account, and use the Kleenex MY Share the Softness on Facebook app.


 The Prizes

The contest is easy, I only need to do the registration once, and I may pledge as many soft acts I want.  I did one today, and I actually pledge something that I should be doing, but it’s really hard sometimes with the fast snap emotion of mine.

Also, if I will be able to fulfill this pledge, I can load up my photo and win the prizes!

Joining Kleenex® to spread acts of softness by making the very first pledges on the Kleenex® Wall of Softness are local celebrities – philanthropist and World Vision’s Child’s Rights advocate Deborah Henry and award-winning actress Sharifah Amani.  WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Join Kleenex®, Deborah Henry and Sharifah Amani to pledge an act of softness today on www.facebook.com/Kleenex.Malaysia – all you have to do is make your pledge, and first 100 daily pledgers will get a free Kleenex® soft pack! Next, share a photo of you fulfilling your pledges and stand a chance to win a holiday worth RM3,000 plus RM2,000 of spending money! 

Remember, Amongst the hustle and bustle of today’s busy society, we often tend to over commit ourselves by wanting to do just about everything and be everywhere at the same time, juggling between work, peers, family and “me” time. If we are often not making it to get-togethers, family outings, movie dates and the list goes on, then are we getting in to the habit of making empty promises a tad too often? Step up and turn things around today by making a pledge on the Kleenex® Wall of Softness – a bold new reminder that even small gestures mean a great deal to the people in your life. 

If you are too busy to go on Facebook, and don’t’ really have the ‘interest’ Kleenex can understand you well.  The Kleenex® Softness Store will be moving around Klang Valley to reach out to the public, advocating the importance of showing love and care with just a simple act of softness. To encourage the act of softness, the first 500 participants who visits the Kleenex® Softness Store will be able to walk away with Kleenex® tissues by just pledging their act of softness on-the-spot.  Check out the Kleenex Malaysia page event, and locate them!

Keep updated on the latest campaign details, as well as locations for the Kleenex® Wall of Softness and Kleenex® Softness Store, via Kleenex® Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Kleenex.Malaysia). Look us up or tag us via #kleenexsoftness in your instagram, facebook and twitter to be part of the Kleenex® Share the Softness movement today. 

So, don’t wait, Try pledging your softness; you never know you will win!  And if you have any other question on Kleenex®, please call the Kimberly-Clark Consumer Care-line at 1-800-82-1188 (toll-free) on weekdays from 9am to 5pm.

Finding a gift for Christmas? Try Furby Boom!

I was given this little pet during my birthday last month, and it's been with me for 1 month now.  This little thing is such a cutie, as it is like a real pet but it won't die (as long as the battery still working)!  How nice.. Of course, this little pet is now belongs to Princess instead, and she will be the one carrying it out, play, bath, and feed!  She even bid it goodnight before going to bed!


Meet my Furby Boom - Loo Doo!  Yes, it has a name!!  and once you set it, the Furby Boom will recognise and keep saying it's name!  

Having Loo Doo is easy for my Princess morning wake up call.. All I need to do is bring out Loo Duh from the sleeping place, and place it beside my Princess.  She will wake up and talk to Loo Doo before going to bath and again, she will bid it bye before heading out.

By simple instructions provided, we started our Furby Boom as easy as 123

1st step.. open the battery compartment.. using 4 AA batteries

I also downloaded the apps.. 

After downloading the game, you may put Furby Boom to choose it's name...

We were given a chart too as just using the apps, you may also 'hatch' eggs to get friends for your Furby Boom!
We have so far hatched around 5 eggs, and giving them different names.

The apps is also useful to do translate Furbish (the language the Furby Speaks)! and it's make lots fun with the app as it will tell you when the Furby need to be bath, feed, play, toilet break and so forth!  

Some other Furby Boom's features are:-

  1. Only Furby Boom can hatch Furblings in the new Furby Boom app. Hatch over 50 Furblings from eggs.
  2. Furby Boom says twice as much as last year’s Furby did – including secret phrases like howling on a full moon
  3. Furby Boom can learn the name you give it – and remembers the names of other Furby Booms
  4. Use the free Furby Boom app to care for your Furby Boom with a shower, a doctor’s office, a toilet and more!
  5. Only Furby Boom can play games with digital Furblings on the Furby Boom app
There will be 12 different colours for 2013. I think the colours are very festive feels.. Below are the 6 available colours now, as the other 6 will be launch later.
★ Pink & Black Straight Stripes
★ Blue Waves
★ Black & White Zigzag Stripes
★ Green Peacock
★ Pink Polka Dots
★ Black & Pink Triangles

I personally think that this is a good gift for little children, as they can take care and also play with it like a pet.
The Furby Boom is available at most major toy retail outlets nationwide and major departmental stores such as AEON, Isetan, Parkson, Robinson etc at RM269.90. All it needs is four (4) “AA” batteries which are not included. You can download the app via App Store or Google Play.
For more information of its all-new FURBY BOOM, please visit www.furby.com.  Not forgetting, if you are having one, call me... we can bring our kids and Furby Boom out to play one day!

Hi-5 teams up with Dumex Mamil All ‘n One

15th November 2013 marked a very special day as on this day, I turned more than half the 30s! That day I had lots of activities line up, and one of that is attending the Hi-5 teams up with Dumex Mamil All 'n One event!

Hi-5, the award-winning Australian children’s musical group, consists of 5 dynamic performers namely Stevie Nicholson (aka “Stavros”), Lauren Brant (aka “Lolly”), Dayen Zheng, Ainsley Melham (aka “Ains”), and Mary Lascaris (aka “Mare-bear”). This energetic group presents the contemporary ‘pop’ style of music and a fun, colourful, exciting world of imagination that children 2-8 years are invited into wholeheartedly.

They star in a popular TV series, Hi-5, which is a vibrant mix of stories, investigation, imagination and adventure and encourages children to explore the world through movement, laughter and lots of catchy music. With Hi-5, learning is playful, fun and inclusive. Most importantly, Hi-5 seeks to support the young child’s growth in all areas – cognitive, social, emotional, creative and physical – while encouraging children to develop their own potential.

The 5 dynamic performers of The Hi5 Group
This new educational campaign brings a new twist to educating young ones on the importance of the 5 major food groups – it is now fun and exciting to consume the right amount of carbohydrates, protein, dairy, fruits and vegetables and healthy fats and oils! In striving to make healthy eating engaging for children, the ‘Give Me 5’ campaign features a catchy song and dance, educational video, plus interactive digital apps showcasing Hi-5 to communicate positive messages on healthy eating.

Besides meeting the Hi5 group on that day, we also meet with the Marketing Manager of Danone Dumex Malaysia, Mr Christiaan Uittenbosch.


He has shared how important is children eating healthy consisting the 5 Food Groups! Besides, we also had a change to have Q&A session with the Hi5 performers! I did asked them if they will be coming up with more videos variety so our children can absorb the information well. So far, it worked for me as my girl been saying "mummy, must eat 5 food groups'!

Lauren even did a demo of 10 push ups, as she encourages children to have food from the 5 Food Groups!





Mummies and Daddies, listen here... The excitement has been growing since October, when young fans began gearing up for the Hi-5 concert, with the opportunity to win free tickets to the exclusive opening show of the ‘Hi-5 House Party’ concert brought by Mamil All ‘n One on Friday, December 27 at KLPAC! However, for those who have missed out on the contest earlier, there is still one more week left to the closing on November 24 - simply purchase any pack of Dumex Mamil All ‘n One 500g or 900g today and answer a simple question via SMS.  (trust me, it's a real simple question).  

Evidence of our appearance in the event..
We will be going for the Hi5 concert on the 27th December 2013, since princess won tickets during a dance performance!  *due to privacy of other children, I will not upload the video here*.  

Before signing off, my girl has been playing this on her Ipad almost every night when she got back from school!  She is very excited now because she won 4 tickets to the concert on that day!  I'm sure if you let your children listen to this, they will also love it because of the energy, vibrant colours and all!
