Dutch Lady "Mak Kata, Saya Anak Bijak" contest

The phrase "Mak Kata" which means Mom Says was first used in a classic Dutch Lady commercial in 1983 featuring 2 boys quoting their mom's pearls of wisdom. Inspired by this, Dutch Lady introduced the "Mak Kata" campaign in 2014. Now, Dutch Lady is pleased to bring back this campaign to reflect the smartness of kids these days.


The "Mak Kata, Saya Anak Bijak" contest is the perfect platform for mothers to share funny, touching or interesting snippets from their daily lives that are related to their child's quick thinking and smart imaginations.

When I was a small girl, my mom said "You not only need to study hard, but also get involved in sports and other creative activities, always think out of the box to succeed." I was a smart and hardworking girl, I made my parents proud by getting the 1st position in the whole of St. Mary's KL primary school in standard 5 when I was 11 years old. Sometimes I was in the 2nd or 3rd place. I was different from other students as I started learning Bahasa Malaysia only when I was 10 years old in standard 4. I had my earlier education in USA. I traveled to many countries with my family when I was young. I took my mom's advice to be active in sports, played badminton, skating, swimming and table tennis. I also took up organ lessons and really loved music. Whenever I faced problems, I would think out of the box and do things differently. I graduated as an Electrical Engineer when I was 22 and received my professional IR. title from the Board of Engineers, Malaysia when I was 27 years old.


Mom & I 

Now I am a mom myself and have 2 children. My daughter is a dyslexic child. Dyslexia comes from the Greek language, 'Dys' means difficulty while 'Lexia' means written words. So dyslexia is a word describing some people (5-10%) who find it hard to learn to read and write even though their intelligence level is normal. When I first learnt of her handicap 2 years ago, I was sad but now that I have found out more about dyslexia, I know some dyslexics are very bright. Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Walt Disney, Whoopi Goldberg, Lee Kuan Yew, Steven Spielberg, Leonardo Da Vinci, Steve Jobs and Cher are some examples of famous dyslexics. Some of these dyslexic people are very smart because they can think out of the box.

My advice to my daughter is "Don't compare yourself with others, be creative, do what you do best and you will succeed. You do not need to be the best, you just need to do your best." I have tried to get my daughter involved in arts, handicraft  and sports so that she can enjoy life and not worry too much about examination results.

I have a younger son who is very cute, active and strong. He loves to dance and ride his bicycle. He still has not started school yet but he is drinking Dutch Lady Nutri Plan milk. I hope he will grow up to be strong and healthy.

These are some photos of my children enjoying different activities.

As children grow, their ability to learn develops. Their curiosity, creativity and imagination to explore widens. The Dutch Lady Nutri Plan with 5X DHA is able to provide tailored nutrition to support the different milestones of development from 1 to 6+ years of age. That's why Scha Alyahya gives her daughter Lara Alana Dutch Lady milk powder and say that Dutch Lady Nutri Plan with 5X DHA helps support Lara's each developmental milestones, allowing her to focus on guiding Lara. 

Children who drink Dutch Lady Nutri Plan with 5X DHA will naturally become stronger and healthier. When children's nutritional needs are well taken care of, moms can focus on guiding them to achieve foundation milestones. I hope all moms out there will give their children this healthy milk powder to drink. Don't forget to join the current contest. Good luck!
