Friso Gold - Win a Family Trip to Holland!

Holland, the land of tulips and windmills, is also home to Royal FrieslandCampina, which produces Friso Gold formulated milk powder for children. Now, two lucky families will get to spend on a holiday in Holland! What’s more, they will also visit a Royal FrieslandCampina dairy farm and witness up close where Friso Gold’s milk products come from. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will allow Friso Gold consumers to understand how the brand takes the best of nature, and makes it better with science to produce high-quality formulated milk powder for children around the world.

“Natural Nutrition. Easy digestion for stronger inside – this is what Friso Gold stands for, ensuring that only the best go into each product to satisfy the needs and taste buds of consumers in 25 countries worldwide.

“At Royal FrieslandCampina, our purebred Frisian cows, the source of our outstanding milk products, are treated like family. We are indeed a unique dairy company because our 20,000 farmers, who are personally-involved in rearing these cows and managing the farms, own the company. So they take the best care of nature, from ensuring the quality of the feed to the high standard of every drop of milk that goes into the production of Friso Gold milk powder, before it is finally served to your little ones,” said Saw Chooi Lee, Managing Director of Dutch Lady Malaysia.



“We take the best care of nature and made it better with science at every single step of our integrated chain, to bring nutrient-rich milk to strengthen each growing child from the inside. As parents, it’s important for us to give the best we can to our children, and Friso Gold can help you along the way,” she added. With over 140 years of dairy expertise, Friso Gold is able to create the ideal nourishing environment for producing high-quality milk. It starts with the farmers, who take great care and dedication to work with nature. The cows are fed a healthy diet of rye grass and maize, and are monitored individually using electronic collars and tags to ensure that their health is at optimum state. They are also allowed to roam in the outdoors to keep them happy and relaxed, so that they can produce naturally nutrient-rich milk.

Friso Gold uses an automated milking system, which allows cows to choose whenever they want to be milked. With the help of this system, they are able to produced better milk.

When the milk is produced, the farmers combine generations of expertise and experience with the latest high-tech milking and monitoring systems, allowing them to make sure that the milk’s hygiene and quality stays consistent throughout the process.  

During transportation, the truck driver will ensure that the milk has the right colour and smell. The milk is kept at no more than 4 degrees Celcius to maintain its high freshness index. At our factory, this natural, nutrient-rich milk is then made better with science.



Friso Gold uses an innovative technology known as LocNutri - a mild heat treatment process that ensures the nutrient in milk is not overheated during processing. The fresh milk is processed gently with mild heat to preserve its nutrient as close to the natural state as possible, so that it can be easily digested by children. The technology ensures goodness of milk’s natural nutrition is preserved when they turn it into milk powder. For ultimate safety and quality, the end product is checked again before being packaged for shipping.


Therefore, every drop of Friso Gold milk preserves its natural goodness, just the way nature intended. Starting from now, stand a chance to win a family trip to Holland and visit a Royal FrieslandCampina dairy farm when you purchase Friso Gold milk powder! Winner families can expect to experience the journey of how Friso Gold milk is produced.

Little Innoscents Organic Baby Skincare Products

My children have sensitive skin and some body or hair wash products which are not suitable for them can cause rashes. I prefer to let them use organic products which are chemical-free so I can be sure these products are good for my children's skin. I was happy to receive Little Innoscents colorful, organic baby skincare products for review.



Little Innoscents is a well-established brand in Australia for the past 10 years and has been in the Malaysian market since early 2016.

All these products are imported from Australia. Not only does Little Innoscents provide products which are environmentally friendly, it is also aesthetically pleasing as all products contain organic essential oils which smells delicious.

IT’S TIME TO FEEL THE FEAR - NIGHTS OF FRIGHT 5


Time to bring out the garlic, holy water, black tourmaline and onyx as Sunway Lagoon unleashes hell with the return of Nights of Fright 5 (NOF 5)! Known to many as Malaysia’s biggest and scariest festival, it will bring a brand-new slate of fear-infused attractions and experiences for thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies and the courageous, with classics such as Pontianak vs Pocong, The Ghostbusters Adventure LIVE!, Zombie Apocalypse and Horrorwood Studios.

From the 7th till the 31st of October 2017, Sunway Lagoon will play host to a horde of ghosts, ghouls, and sinister creatures. It unveils the most outrageous, eerie, hair-raising haunted houses in the nation. If you are easily frightened, think twice before you enter.
Start to feel the fear by experiencing THE ISLAND OF THE DOLLS, a replica of an accidental tourist attraction in Mexico which became famous due to a tragic disaster. The dolls are dedicated to the lost soul of a poor girl who met her fate too soon in strange circumstances who then possesses the dolls. Locals say that the dolls move their heads and arms and even opened their eyes. Some witnesses claim they have heard the dolls whispering to each other, while others who were on a boat near the island said the dolls lured them to come down to the island. Look the dolls in the eyes, if you dare.


Further heighten the chill in your bones at OUIJA by gathering around to experience a scary séance in the mysterious and long abandoned attic of Mr. E.J. Bond Esquire’s home. Ouija boards have spooked people for decades in claims of the game to be in direct link with spirits from the world beyond. Many have witnessed their friends moving the planchette on the board while others swore some outer-worldly interference is controlling the movement!

There is a saying that when you die, everything grows dark around the edges until there was only darkness. Prepare yourself with death at DAY OF THE DEAD IN UV3D where you will be exposed to the phenomenon of life of the dead.  Manoeuver in darkness as you make your way to the funeral room where you’ll see widows and children mourning the deceased. Stay alert as those with low spirit might be spotted by the dead souls and they would always want some company in the realm of the dead.


Overrun with squalor, human misery, oppression, disease and overcrowding, haunted hospitals have one thing in common: ghosts of the past lingering in their halls. DYSTOPIA exposes you to a horrifying experience of patient treatments that are frightful to hear, daunting to see in the year 2147. Patients are kept in separate rooms while the doctor determines their treatment. These patients are put through more pain than being treated at the electric shock room and padded room to isolate patients and their muffled cries. Victims who could not withstand the torture are left to die on bloody mattresses and their souls are trapped in the bed to endlessly haunt visitors.

All within Scream Park, amp up your fear levels and call up the GHOSTBUSTERS while wandering through the iconic Firehouse HQ, and some infamous ghost locations such as Aldridge Mansion and Seward Street Subway. Then, move on to PONTIANAK vs POCONG, a bloody affair of a lover returning as a Pontianak and unfaithful husband as a Pocong – seeking what is rightfully theirs in a classic battle of evil vs evil. Meet the scariest movie characters of all time who will come to life and celebrate a night horror at HORRORWOOD STUDIOS. If you think you are fearless, enter the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE with simply no escape once you step foot into the land of the undead who will show you the worst of fears!

Re-live your childhood nightmares with iconic horror movie characters at the HORRORWOOD BOULEVARD which adopts the famous Hollywood façade with large Oscar Statues, red carpet, velvet rope barriers, and lights.

Face the curse of the sea at ZOMBIE PIRATES with the undead guardians shunning you away from bay into a pool of their horrifying torment. Try as you may to keep afloat or the cursed sea will engulf you whole!

Don’t call yourself brave until you have entered the FOREST OF FEAR. Walk through different tombstones, haunted trees and leafy vines making your stroll in the forest vulnerable to surprise encounters with Hantu Pocongs and Pontianaks!  

Ever wondered what goes behind the bars of Pudu Jail? Experience it first-hand as you walk-through the JUDGEMENT LANE where we give you the closest representation of how the prisoners are hung alive!


Join the parade at MARCH OF THE UNDEAD, the street where scare characters walk about in different hauntingly beautiful makeup and costumes. Decorated with Mexican paper flags and accompanied by large puppet processions honouring the dead, it will surely send chills down your spine.

NOF 5 comes to life at 7.30pm – 11.30pm every Friday – Sunday from 7th to 29th October including 31 October 2017. Tickets are priced at RM 45 (Early bird tickets from 15th August to 15th September) and RM64 (normal price).
