Kempen Pemeriksaan Kesihatan Gusi 1 Juta Gumbatte 2019

 Sekarang masa cuti Sekolah bulan Mac, masa berlalu dengan cepat. Kita haruslah hargai setiap orang di sisi kita. Hari ini, saya ingin berkongsi dengan anda bahawa kepentingan menjaga kesihatan gusi.

Adakah anda tergolong dalam 94% orang dewasa di Malaysia yang mengalami masalah gusi1? Jika anda tidak pasti, layari laman web gumhealthcheck.com untuk membuat penilaian dalam talian secara percuma yang dapat membantu anda mendapatkan gusi dan gigi sihat sepanjang hayat.


Laman web pemeriksaan kesihatan gusi secara percuma ini adalah sebahagian daripada kempen kesedaran dan pendidikan Ke Arah Pemeriksaan Kesihatan Gusi 1 Juta Gumbatte Systema (Gumbatte Towards 1 Million Gum Health Checks) 2019, satu kerjasama dengan Persatuan Doktor Pergigian Malaysia.


Kempen ini bertujuan untuk membantu rakyat Malaysia mencapai tahap kesihatan oral yang lebih baik dengan matlamat utamanya memberi motivasi kepada lebih ramai orang supaya mengekalkan 20 batang gigi asal mereka apabila berusia 60 tahun dan ke atas2. Jadi, mereka boleh menikmati kesihatan sepanjang hayat, selari dengan matlamat Kementerian Kesihatan.


Kempen Gumbatte mengambil semangat daripada perkataan Jepun ‘Ganbatte’ yang bermaksud ‘anda boleh melakukannya’. Sekali gus menyeru rakyat Malaysia supaya menjaga kesihatan gusi mereka dan mencapai 1 juta pemeriksaan gusi.


Kempen ini dilancarkan oleh Dr. Norliza bt Mohamed, bertanggungjawab sebagai menanggung tugas Pengarah Kanan Kesihatan Pergigian, sempena Hari Kesihatan Oral Kebangsaan di pusat membeli-belah 1 Utama di Bandar Utama, hari ini.


Menurut Dr Norliza, kesihatan oral sering dilihat sebagai kurang penting berbanding kesihatan umum yang lain. Namun, sikap ini perlu diubah kerana ia merupakan isu yang serius. Beliau menyatakan bahawa tahap kesihatan oral yang rendah sering dikaitkan dengan masalah-masalah kesihatan yang lain.


“Kajian penyelidikan menunjukkan korelasi di antara penyakit gusi dengan serangan jantung, diabetes dan terbaharu, Alzheimer. Ini merupakan penyakit yang boleh mengancam nyawa. Sekiranya pengesanan dan rawatan awal penyakit gusi boleh merendahkan korelasi ini, kita wajar menerokanya.”


Beliau mengakui bahawa kempen Gumbatte Systema yang memberi penekanan terhadap kesihatan gusi secara dalam talian dilihat cukup tepat kerana majoriti rakyat Malaysia, termasuklah di kawasan pedalaman memperoleh maklumat dari dalam talian.


“Kempen Ke Arah Pemeriksaan Kesihatan Gusi 1 Juta Gumbatte boleh membantu Bahagian Penjagaan Oral Kementerian Kesihatan mendidik lebih ramai orang mengenai perlunya menjaga kesihatan gusi dan oral dengan lebih cepat, menerusi keputusan yang dapat diperoleh secara serta-merta.”


Pengurus Besar Southern Lion Sdn. Bhd., Carmen Foo menyatakan usaha meningkatkan kesedaran mengenai kesihatan oral ini dibuat kerana gigi yang kuat bermula dengan gusi yang sihat. Systema ialah jenama teras Lion Corporation, Jepun dan memiliki warisan penjagaan oral selama lebih120 tahun hasil kolaborasi dengan pakar-pakar pergigian, pihak berkuasa kesihatan, saintis dan penyelidik.


“Sistem Anti-Plak Systema menggabungkan ubat gigi Systema Advance Anti-Plaque untuk menyingkirkan plak dan membunuh bakteria berbahaya walaupun di dalam poket gusi. Manakala bulu berus gigi tirus 0.02mm Systema membantu menyingkirkan plak biarpun di kawasan yang sukar dicapai di antara gigi, sepanjang garisan gusi dan di dalam poket gusi.


“Kini kita sudah ada penyelesaiannya. Justeru, inilah masanya untuk meningkatkan kesedaran mengenai penyakit gusi kerana ia adalah asas kepada gusi dan gigi yang sihat sepanjang hayat. Sebab itulah kami memperkenalkan kempen Ke Arah Pemeriksaan Kesihatan Gusi 1 Juta Gumbatte – bagi membina kesedaran diri tentang perlunya perubahan yang positif,” kata Foo.


“Rakyat Malaysia memperoleh banyak maklumat daripada media sosial. Sebab itulah kami bekerjasama dengan pasangan artis dan media sosial terkenal, Wawa Zainal dan Aeril Zafrel untuk menyemarakkan lagi kempen ini. Kami percaya dengan strategi ini, kesedaran mengenai pentingnya pemeriksaan kesihatan gusi dapat menarik perhatian lebih ramai orang. Seterusnya menggalakkan mereka mengambil langkah demi mencapai tahap kesihatan oral yang lebih baik,” katanya.


Pelakon Aeril Zafrel nyata terkejut dengan kadar penyakit gusi yang dihidapi oleh rakyat Malaysia. “Berada dalam industri hiburan atau mana-mana industri yang perlu berdepan dengan pelanggan, anda mesti memiliki tahap kebersihan diri, termasuklah oral yang baik. Saya tidak sedar betapa seriusnya masalah gusi di kalangan kita. Justeru, saya rasa bertanggungjawab untuk berkongsi maklumat ini kerana ia mampu memberi perubahan, terutamanya kerana penyakit gusi mempunyai kaitan dengan serangan jantung, diabetes dan Alzheimer. Kita semua perlu melayari laman web gumhealthcheck.com untuk menilai tahap kesihatan gusi kita.”

Systema turut mengagihkan 10,000 Ubat Gigi Systema Advance Anti-Plaque dan 10,000 berus gigi dengan bulu berus tirus 0.02mm bagi menyokong program jangkauan di seluruh negara ini.

Pelakon dan usahawan Wawa Zainal juga bersemangat untuk menjadi pencetus kesedaran kesihatan oral. “Penyakit gusi adalah masalah kesihatan yang penting. Jika kita boleh menggalakkan lebih ramai orang untuk menjaga kesihatan gusi dengan menggunakan ubat gigi anti-plak dan berus gigi yang boleh membantu menambah baik kualiti hidup, ia sememangnya hala tuju yang betul buat negara kita.”


Presiden Persatuan Doktor Pergigian Malaysia, Dr Leong Kei Joe menyatakan usaha mengurangkan penyakit gusi di Malaysia perlu dimulakan dengan mengubah persepsi tentang penyakit gusi sepenuhnya. Beliau memuji kempen menangani masalah penyakit gusi ini.


“Kesedaran terhadap penyakit gusi memang serius dan ia berpotensi memberi impak kepada kualiti hidup, selain mempunyai kaitan dengan penyakit-penyakit berbahaya. Terlalu ramai di antara kita yang melihat tanda-tanda penyakit gusi seperti berdarah ketika memberus sebagai sesuatu yang normal. Rakyat Malaysia perlu mengenal pasti tanda-tanda dan simptom penyakit gusi. Jadi mereka tahu apabila ada yang tidak kena, mereka boleh mendapatkan bantuan. Pantau kesihatan oral anda dengan melayari laman web gumhealthcheck.com untuk menilai status kesihatan gusi anda. Jika perlu, jumpa doktor gigi anda untuk mendapatkan rawatan.”


Beliau memberitahu, ahli-ahli Persatuan Doktor Pergigian Malaysia akan menawarkan pemeriksaan kesihatan gusi secara percuma sebagai sokongan kepada Bulan Kesihatan Oral Kebangsaan. Selain mencadangkan setiap orang perlu berjumpa dengan doktor gigi sekurang-kurangnya dua kali setahun.

Siri jelajah Ke Arah Pemeriksaan Kesihatan Gusi 1 Juta Gumbatte Systema akan diadakan di pusat membeli-belah 1 Utama sehingga Ahad, 17 Mac 2019. Ia turut menawarkan pemeriksaan gigi secara percuma, permainan, hadiah dan pelbagai aktiviti lain.


Jadilah antara yang terawal daripada 1 juta orang yang memeriksa kesihatan gusi secara dalam talian di laman web gumhealthcheck.com untuk gigi dan gusi yang sihat sepanjang hayat.

Harga dan Kebolehdapatan

Produk-produk Systema boleh didapati di seluruh negara menerusi pasar raya hiper utama, pasaraya dan farmasi pada harga RM12.55 untuk ubat gigi Systema Advance Anti-Plaque, manakala berus gigi pula berharga RM7.80 hingga RM12.55.

AYAMAS KITCHEN HALAL FROZEN DIM SUM

Happy New Year to my followers, readers and visitors. QSR Trading Sdn Bhd (QSRT) through its shelf brand ‘Ayamas Kitchen’, has recently launched a range of delicious halal frozen Dim Sum varieties to cater to Chinese food lovers.

The company offers 10 varieties of Dim Sum, and the varieties already available in the market include Ayamas Kitchen Prawn Hargow, Chicken & Prawn Shaomai, Shrimp Dumpling, Chicken Glutinous Rice with Lotus Leaf, and an Ayamas Kitchen Combo Pack Dim Sum. Other varieties to be later introduced include Curry Chicken Shaomai, Radish Cake with Dried Shrimp, Barbeque Chicken Bun, Chicken & Fish Beancurd Roll, and Prawn Shaomai.

“The frozen dim sum offers convenience to all who wants to enjoy the specialty, even when they are too busy to prepare it in the conventional way. It appears that apart from five-star hotels, not many restaurants serve halal dim sum. The Ayamas Kitchen’s halal version will now allow Muslims to enjoy the dish in the convenience of their own home,” said Adi Wira Abd Razak, Chief Executive Officer, QSR Brands Upstream Division.

“Our products are made from fresh ingredients, packed with quality materials, using the latest technology and equipment so that our customers can be sure that they are 100% safe for consumption. The products are certified halal by Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS), a JAKIM approved certification body.

“The Ayamas Kitchen’s Dim Sum range is easy to prepare through various cooking methods. The dim sum can be steamed, boiled, fried or microwaved, before the food is ready to be enjoyed. However, for the best eating experience, I would recommend it to be steamed the traditional way. The Dim Sum goes well with our Ayamas’ Chili Sauce and Life’s Hoisin Sauce,” he added.

As mentioned earlier, five of the ten varieties which are now available at Giant supermarkets nationwide, are the Ayamas Kitchen Prawn Hargow (160g) sold at RM13.39 per packet, Ayamas Kitchen Chicken & Prawn Shaomai (160g) at RM10.59 per packet, Ayamas Kitchen Shrimp Dumpling (144g) at RM11.29 per packet, Ayamas Kitchen Chicken Glutinous Rice with Lotus Leaf (270g) at RM11.99 per packet, and Ayamas Kitchen Combo Pack Dim Sum (160g) at RM12.79 per packet.

Ayamas Kitchen is one of QSRT’s shelf brands that have been around for two years. Besides the frozen Dim sum, it also produces other kitchen staples such as canned sardines & mackerels, cooking pastes, spices & seasoning mix, as well as ready-to-eat products. QSRT is also the distributor of the frozen chicken-based products under the name “Ayamas” namely the Golden Nuggets, Breaded Chicken Drummets and Mid Wings, Crispy Fried Chicken, Chicken Meatballs, Quikburger and Premium Chicken Frankfurters. It also markets third party brands such as Divella, Lactima, and Kewpie in the domestic market and exported to overseas.

Healthy Teeth, Happy Smile Campaign To Encourage Better Childhood Oral Health with Komodo Lion

full set of Kodomo Lion Products
 It's school holidays, but didn't mean we can just relax and doing nothing. No matter how busy we are, we need to teach our children the important of oral health. Talking of oral health, I am sure you have seen the Komodo Lion brand in the market.

Kodomo Lion the No. 1 Kids Toothpaste brand in Malaysia 1 that is backed by Lion Japan, believes in cultivating good dental habits in children from young to achieve healthy teeth for a happy smile.
Kodomo means children in Japanese. Fittingly, the Kodomo Lion brand provides oral care solutions developed exclusively for children from 6 months to 12 years of age. It includes two toothbrush ranges that cater for different stages of oral development, and four variants of children’s toothpaste.


The need for an oral care campaign specifically targeting children and their parents is pressing as tooth decay scientifically known as dental caries2 affects the physical and mental development of children, yet research studies done among Malaysian children estimates that between 7 out of 10 children in Malaysia have this oral health problem3.


This is why the brand is launching the Kodomo Lion Healthy Teeth, Happy Smile campaign that engages parents and children to make tooth-brushing a fun and healthy family bonding activity, where parents model good brushing behaviours to children to set them on the path to lifelong good oral health.
(From the left), Dr. Lim Zi Wei, a Dental Surgeon debunked child oral care myths at the event, Ms Loo Mei Fong, Senior Brand Manager, Oral Care Division, Southern Lion, Dr. Manjit Kaur, Head of Department, Klinik Pergigian Kelana Jaya provided an overview of oral care in Malaysia, Ms Winne Goh, Assistant Brand Manager, Southern Lion with the Kodomo Lion Mascot, Dr Lion at the Kodomo Lion Healthy Teeth, Happy Smile Campaign

“As the number one children’s toothpaste brand in Malaysia, Kodomo Lion feels a duty to promote better oral health for children. The recommendations that we are making are based on years of research and development by LION Japan, the No.1 Oral Care company in Japan oral care products4 that are suited for every stage of a child’s development for better long-term oral health.”


“Our campaign is simple, as kids need Healthy Teeth for Happy Smile. It is easy to achieve – equip them with the right toothpaste, toothbrush, technique and the ideal role model, their parents to learn from. With just a bit of effort, and some precious daily bonding time every child can have Healthy Teeth, Happy Smile for life. It is important to look after children milk teeth as it will pave the way for good healthy adult teeth,” said Southern Lion Sdn Bhd, Senior Brand Manager, Oral Care Division, Ms Loo Mei Fong.


Kids and parents were encouraged to try the activities as a team before joining an interactive session with noted dental surgeon, Dr Lim Zi Wei who shared on the challenges of pre-schooler oral care, and the role of parents in forming good oral care habits.


“A child’s dental health is just as important as his or her overall well-being. Once your child starts to have first teeth, it is time to pick up a tube of children fluoridated toothpaste and start brushing. Brushing a baby or toddler's teeth should be a task for parents, at least until your child is able to brush on his or her own around age 5 or older.”


“The time spent together between parents and children while brushing teeth is precious for bonding. It also helps to keep cavities at bay and instil a lifetime of healthy dental habits. As your child grows, plan on routine dental check-ups based on your dentist's recommendations. Keeping sugary foods in check, encouraging regular brushing and flossing, and working with your dentist will lead to good dental health,” Dr Lim explained.


Kodomo Lion will also collaborate with the Ministry of Health Malaysia to take this campaign to pre-schools. The brand has been working with schools in Johor for the past 20 years on children’s oral care, and will be expanding to other states.


Kodomo Lion uses Lion Japan’s advanced dental technology to develop an advanced formulation “5% Xylitol + Active Fluoride” toothpaste which helps to restore mineral and repair early caries5. It strengthens teeth with extra effect of cavities prevention and aids in keeping children’s teeth strong and healthy. It’s low foam formulation indirectly encourages children to brush for longer, while its sugar-free formulation aids in reducing the formation of dental plaque for healthier teeth.

It's been a habit everyday, my sons would brush their teeth twice a days. It's in the morning and at night before they going to bed.

Studies show that the effects of fluoride can aid in the prevention and reduction of dental caries for all age groups6. Parents can rest assured that Kodomo Lion toothpaste has the safe amount of fluoride for children’s teeth.


“For parents whose children are showing the first sign of dental caries, Kodomo Lion toothpaste can help to repair early caries. The secret for parents and kids is to brush twice daily with a good quality children’s toothbrush such as Kodomo Lion’s that is suitable for the child’s oral development for at least two minutes, and to do it consistently,” said Ms Loo.


Kodomo Children’s Toothpaste comes in fun designs with Dr Lion and buddies and four sugar-free flavours (Strawberry, Grape, Orange and Apple) to make brushing effective and fun.

To make brushing more effective Kodomo Lion has two toothbrush ranges - Kodomo Lion Progress, and Soft & Slim for different age groups. Both toothpaste and toothbrush are available nationwide at hypermarkets, supermarkets and pharmacies at the recommended selling price of RM3.40 to RM5.05.

 For your information, Kodomo Lion is also collaborating with Watsons, whereby you are able to get a RM2 discount with the purchase of RM10 worth of Kodomo products. The promotion is available in Watson’s Online store and selected in-stores only.

Poslaju Consignment Note

Anybody know about this as it is new to me. My friend bought an item online from Shopee and the kitchen rack came in a box, the top of the kitchen rack has damaged. She told the seller about this matter, then the seller agree to send her just the top of the kitchen rack but asked her to return the damaged part by sending it back using their consignment note.

It's first time she used Poslaju and consignment note as no experienced on this before. She didn't go the pos office herself but ask her nephew to go. But nephew pay the amount RM25 for it even though he told the pos office staff used the consignment note. So the seller ask why pay, when there's consignment note to use.

Now seller need to investigate the matter with Poslaju to find out.
