Julie's Love Letters


Turn your love into words this Chinese New Year with Julie's and share it out with Julie's "What's your love letter?" campaign by writing down your most sincere love message. With the “Spread Your Joy; Share Your Love”, Julie’s encourages everyone to send their warmest regards to the people they care about and fill the air with love and warmth this festive season.

Since Chinese New Year is coming soon, giving Julie's biscuits would be a great gift. It is never the monetary value of the gift, but the blessings and well-wishes from the giver that matters most. Julie’s Love Letters are not only a taste of beautiful memories for most Malaysians, but also a taste of sincerity and love.
                  

Express your Love with Julie’s

Julie’s launched the “What’s Your Love Letter?” 2018 CNY campaign at Sunway Velocity Mall recently. Julie’s Malaysia Senior National Sales Manager Mr. Dennis Swee Jing Wei said they are continuing their annual tradition of encouraging everyone to pen down their heartfelt messages and send it out to their loved ones. At the same time, they also wish that everyone can share their love and care to those who need love, and together make our society a better place.

“When was the last time you picked up a pen to write something down? How often do you miss the opportunity to share your excitement with your family? Are there words that you wish to tell your partner or best friend but just couldn’t say it out loud? It’s time to put down your mobile phone and write down your love,” he added.

He said since its initiation in 2015, Julie’s “What’s Your Love Letter?” Campaign has received warm response from the public. The objective has always been simple, to write down your feelings and turn those touching moments into an eternal memory.

“Since we initiated the What’s Your Love Letter?” Campaign, we’ve been receiving overwhelming response from the public. Over the years, we have done this is several ways, from postcards to last year’s “Love Invites”, we continue this effort of showing love through words to strengthen the relationships. Because of the public’s support and participation, we are confident to let this beautiful tradition continues,” he said.

He added that with this campaign, everyone can send their love and care through these “Love Letters”, and help to raise the spirits of those in need. This year’s, Julie’s “What’s Your Love Letter? Campaign is encouraging everyone to send their blessings to strangers and together make the World a better place.

“To celebrate this year’s Chinese New Year, we have designed a special ‘Fudai’ along with our 700gram Julie’s Love Letters. Inside the Fudai, there is a Love Note for you to write down your blessings and thank you notes for your friends and relatives.

The Straits Hotel & Suites Melaka


Last weekend my family had a short 3 days 2 nights fun vacation in Melaka. We stayed at The Straits Hotel & Suites Melaka which is located in the heart of historical city of Melaka and UNESCO World Heritage site. There are 352 rooms designed elegantly for maximum comfort. This 4 star hotel is within walking distance to most tourist attraction spots such as The Stadthuys, St. Paul's Church, Jonker Street and A'Famosa. It is just 2 minutes walk to shopping centers.




When I walked into the hotel lobby, I saw a very spacious and comfortable waiting area with complimentary orange juice, cookies and snacks. There was a cafe where you can buy other drinks and snacks too. I felt very relaxed here and my children loved to eat their cookies.




The friendly staffs at the receptionist area were fast with my check in. They collected RM 100 refundable deposit and RM 8 for heritage tax for 2 days. The staff told me to get a parking card at Level 1 by giving the parking management RM 30 refundable deposit. This is because Straits Hotel & Suites building is connected to Novotel Hotel and both share the same parking spaces. 

Corridor of the 22nd floor with beautiful flower designs on the carpet

There are four types of rooms - Deluxe Twin, Deluxe King, Premier Suite and Straits Suite. My family stayed at the Straits Suite room and Deluxe King room which were linked through a door. Both these rooms had a balcony and comes with comfortable king size bed, LCD TV,  kitchen cabinet with a sink and complimentary mineral waters, coffee and tea, toilet amenities, shower, free wifi, mini fridge, wardrobe, bathrobes, safety box, hair dryer and slippers.

Here is a short video I recorded with my children in the hotel rooms.
