Ayam Brand™ Coconut Milk For Health, Convenience & Great Taste

Ayam Brand™ Coconut Milk is hygienically squeezed from selected ripe coconuts, then sealed in convenient tetra packs using Ultra High Temperature (UHT) technology.

Have a good day everyone, anyone going back to hometown soon? We are not sure yet as I still have work to do. By the way, how do you make your spread of nasi lemak tastier, your curry fish head creamier and your smoothie healthier for your loved ones? Coconut milk is the key.

Coconut milk has been a part of Malaysian cuisine, be it Malay, Chinese, Indian, and even Peranakan cuisines for centuries and gaining wider acceptance in the West.
Chocolate Banana Coconut Smoothie

 Famed for its wide range of high quality, no preservatives and no added MSG, healthy and convenient canned food, the brand is a household name in Malaysia and in much of the South East Asian region. Ayam Brand has been providing the great taste and health benefits of coconut milk, in convenient packs for decades.

Ayam Brand™ Coconut Milk is hygienically squeezed from selected ripe coconuts, then sealed in convenient tetra packs using Ultra High Temperature (UHT) technology.  It is as good as squeezing by hand but without the hassle of cleaning up after.

Nutritional Benefits
The saturated fat that can be found in coconut milk is beneficial because when consumed in moderation with a healthy diet, it has positive benefits to consumers.

The saturated fat found in coconut milk is mainly made up of lauric acid and medium chain fatty acid (MCT) which makes it easier for our body to metabolize, compared to long chain fatty acid.

Our body will break down the coconut milk fat into monolaurin, which is a compound that has antiviral and antibacterial properties,, making coconut milk a reliable resource for the body’s immune system.

According to research by Professor Takuji Shirasawa, an anti-aging practitioner and professor of Aging Control Medicine, coconut fat provides the body with nutrients and energy while promoting the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) and minerals (calcium, magnesium and iron).

Coconut milk is lactose-free and can easily substitute dairy products for lactose intolerants; it is a popular choice among vegans.

Serving Suggestions
Cooking or making a healthier meal with Ayam Brand™ Coconut Milk is convenient and tasty. For a modern twist on the classic coconut milk, try Dried Fruit Quinoa Porridge. It is gluten free, meaning it is more easily digested, low in allergens, and high in quality proteins with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.

To satisfy your sweet tooth, Coconut and Chia Yoghurt Fruit Parfait is a healthier option. The combination of coconut milk and chia seeds is rich in nutrients making it a great choice for a before or after sports activities treat. It is also a healthy and easy to prepare breakfast option.

To enhance your stamina, try Ayam Brand™ Coconut Milk with Chia Seed Porridge. It is packed with trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids that have antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant properties.  Athletes call this recipe ‘Liquid Gold’.

For a quickie, fill your tumbler with Chocolate Banana Coconut Smoothie and sip while doing your power walk. This will brighten your day as cocoa contains phenethylamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is known to elevate mood and is a natural antidepressant.

Paleo Kale Smoothie is all about ‘prevention is better than cure’ as this simple recipe contains high level of vitamins K, A and C from the Kale. Vitamin K is vital for the heart’s health, blood clotting, bone health, cancer prevention and diabetes prevention, while vitamin A support skin health and vision, while vitamin C boosts immunity, keeps the joints healthy, maintains body hydration and increases metabolism.   

All of these recipes can be found in the book Food For The Brain, by Prof. Shirasawa.

Ayam BrandTM Coconut Milk retails for RM 10.28 for 1000ml (equivalent to five coconuts), which is suitable for food services, large families or festive cooking, and RM2.65 per 200ml pack (equivalent to one coconut). Trim coconut milk 200ml retails at RM2.54, and is ideal for weight watchers and also to make light curries or thinner gravies. The complete range of Ayam Brand™ healthy and convenient products are available at retail outlets nationwide.  Please visit us at for more ways to enjoy coconut milk!

Kimball Offers Simple, Wholesome Yet Tasty Sahur Meal Solutions for Busy Mums!

Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims, when it is required to fast from sunrise to sunset.
It is also a time when Malay mothers can be at their busiest, as they juggle their daily household duties and careers, while fitting in Sahur preparations in the wee hours of the morning for their loved ones.

For first time mums who are new to preparing Sahur meals for kids there are also concerns if the prepared meal provides enough energy for the kids to get through the day, does it appeal to picky eaters and most pressingly, will it be ready, on the table and eaten before Sahur is over.

Kimball, a Malaysian culinary solutions brands with a heritage of over 40 years, understands the challenges of Malay mums, including waking up early to prepare meals during Ramadan, and has set out to provide meal solutions that will free-up time, add more taste while being affordable, so that mums can spend more time with their families.
Chef Rohani Jelani (Picture) understands the challenges mums face during Ramadan and the need to come out with simple, hassle-free recipes that can be prepared the night before.

Being a mother, Chef Rohani understands the need to come out with simple, hassle-free recipes that can be prepared the night before, which leaves cooking and plating to be done in the morning for convenience.

These recipes are specially created using Kimball products, ranging from rice, pasta to bread based dishes, such as the all-time favorite Kimball Stuffed French Toast, the ever-convenient Kimball One-Pot Hainanese Chicken Rice, the tasty yet simple Kimball Angel Hair with Chicken Mushroom Sauce, the traditional standby of Kimball Spicy Tomato Fried Rice and the power-packed, bite-sized Kimball Chicken BBQ Bun, all of which are hearty meals to fuel the family throughout the day.

The Kimball culinary solutions add to the wholesomeness and convenience of the dishes, for example using Kimball Angel Hair pasta instead of wet noodles is more nutritious, filling and healthier.

“I created these recipes to be simple and that they can be prepared the night before, and they taste just as good when heated up in the morning,” Chef Rohani said.

“I will definitely be using these Kimball recipes during Ramadan. Pn Rohani’s recipes are excellent because all the one pot meals save a lot of cooking and cleaning up time. My family’s are the Kimball One-Pot Hainanese Chicken Rice and the Kimball BBQ Chicken Buns. The Kimball sauces used definitely add to the flavor, and cut down on the prepping time as well,” she said.

According to Ms Tania Lee, the Category Manager, of Campbell Soup Southeast Asia Sdn. Bhd., Kimball understands the challenges faced by Malay mums, especially when preparing Sahur meals during Ramadan. The brand has developed these simple, wholesome and tasty recipes to give mums more times with their families, by freeing up time spent in the kitchen.

“For example, the Kimball Spicy Tomato Fried Rice can be prepared speedily. It is a wholesome meal, containing source of carbohydrate, protein, vitamins & minerals. And what is good is that all the Kimball Sahur meals that we created can easily feed a family of five for just RM15 or less.” Said Ms Lee.

Sustain your energy levels throughout the day with the traditional standby of Kimball Spicy Tomato Fried Rice as you fast.

The ever-convenient Kimball One-Pot Hainanese Chicken Rice is easy to prepare for Sahur, and will surely be a family favorite.
For working mother of three, Pn Nur Yusnizah Yushof, Ramadan is joyous time where she can model good spiritual values for her children, but she finds that time management is the biggest challenge especially in getting Sahur meals ready. She generally cooks Sahur meals at home, because she has the peace-of-mind that meals are to the taste of her family, and provide the nutrition and energy that her family needs to complete their fast.

“My daughters are 14 and 12, and have been fasting for the past few years. Meal preparation for my eldest daughter’s first Sahur was really stressful for me because I wanted to give her appetizing food that would sustain her throughout the day. I didn’t sleep the night, and even had bought take-away just in case I couldn’t get

the meal done on time. Insha’Allah, all went well. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for simple, hassle-free recipes for Sahur,” Pn Nur Yusnizah shared.

Understanding the challenges mums face during Ramadan especially in the meal preparation for Sahur, Kimball that has a wide range of sauces, pasta sauce and dry pasta has, teamed up with Chef Rohani Jelani to develop five simple and tasty Sahur recipes that cost around RM15 each that can feed a family of five.

For working mother of three, Pn Nur Yusnizah Yushof (Fourth from left), although time management can be a challenge, Ramadan is joyous time where she can model good spiritual values for her children.

 An expert’s advice by Dr. Wong Su-Ming, understanding the sun’s effect on your skin
Did you know that the skin uses sunlight to help manufacture vitamin D, which is important for normal bone formation? But, you’re probably more aware that sun exposure or ultraviolet light can be very detrimental to your skin. That said, when thinking about sun exposure, you might see yourself getting a suntan on the beach or exercising outdoors. Little did you know though, that we receive a large portion of our sun exposure when we’re in our cars.

Ultraviolet Rays: Your Skin’s Worst Nightmare
Within the skin’s outer layer (known as the epidermal), are cells that contain pigment melanin. Melanin serves to protect the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. While these rays are “invisible”, they’re extremely dangerous.

Over time, prolonged exposure to UV rays can burn the skin thereby causing sunburn. Sun damage can also lead to wrinkles, freckles, leathering, sagging, brown “age” spots, and in some cases skin cancer. There are three types of UV rays:

a) UVA are the most constant year-round and penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin. It is responsible for the immediate tanning effect and is also known as “UV Aging rays” as they cause long term skin damage and photo-aging (premature ageing, wrinkles and sun spots).

b) UVB cannot penetrate beyond the superficial skin layers but is responsible for delayed tanning and burning. Most UVB is filtered by the atmosphere and is often referred to as “UV Burning rays”. UVB rays are the common cause of most skin cancers.

c) UVC is the strongest and deadliest of solar rays, however the ozone layer stops these from reaching the Earth.

When UV rays penetrate the outer skin layers and pass into the deeper layers, your skin cells can either be damaged or killed.

Sun Exposure while Driving
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, dermatologists have observed for years now; that patients often have more sun damage on the left side of their faces as compare to the right. Why? Research increasingly points to UVA radiation penetrating through car windows.

UV exposure is cumulative, and research has proven that skin exposed to sun shining through window glass, even in the office or at home, can over time lead to significant skin damage. So, take some time to think about the UV exposure we receive while driving or being in a car. In a research published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, it is found that those who spent more time driving a vehicle had more severe photo-damage on the left side of their faces. Reinforcing this research, in countries where drivers drive on the right side, people tend to develop more sun damage and skin pre-cancers on the right.

Sun Safety in your Car
The best way to protect your skin from the sun is by using products with a high SPF daily. SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and is a multiplier which tells you how much longer you can stay in the sun without burning when wearing a sunscreen, for example. Suppose your skin naturally starts to burn in 20 minutes. When you use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15, you won’t begin to burn for 5 hours – 15 times longer.

While you can choose to apply sunscreen in the car, the Skin Cancer Foundation also recommends window film as the single best safeguard against UV damage. In cars, research has shown that UV damage is more extensive on the side of the body closer to the window but fortunately, there are automotive films that deliver superior heat rejection, with the ability to block UV rays.

Say goodbye to hair tangles with Samsung’s New Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner

To combat Malaysians’ top pet peeve of hair and dust getting tangled in brooms and vacuum cleaners, Samsung Malaysia Electronics recently introduced their newest innovation, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner. Malaysians can now say goodbye to physically removing tangled hair stands and dust from their cleaning tools with their hands!

The Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner is a bag-less cleaner, set to elevate and optimize your household cleaning experience to a fuss-free one. Samsung’s latest vacuum cleaner is equipped with the brand’s first CycloneForceTM with Anti-Tangle Turbine which blows hair strands, dust and crumbs out of the edge of the turbine fan. This ensures that the turbine fan rotates continuously to provide consistent suction power, and prevents the turbine grille from clogging, saving time on removing entangled hairs in the vacuum with your hands when cleaning.

Powered by a powerful motor with an innovative pick-up brush that adheres to floors for even pressure spread, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner has extreme suction power which quickly and thoroughly sucks up dust, hair and dirt without clogging on various floor surfaces. The new vacuum cleaner also comes with an Anti-Tangle tool which is designed to have two separate airflows for the dust and hair inlet, and the air flow inlet. Thus, preventing hair tangles on the brush bar and shaft of the turbine fan.

For simple and convenient maintenance, the vacuum cleaner comes with an Easy Dustbin. With just the push of a button, you can easily detach the dustbin and empty the contents into a trash can. Additionally, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner’s durable sponge type foam filter captures more dust and can be easily washed and cleaned by simply rinsing it to prevent clogging and maintain its suction power. This latest Samsung innovation also comes complete with a 2-year manufacturer warranty for consumers to have a peace of mind.

Themed Make Your Mark in Melbourne, all Malaysian street artists aged 21 and above are invited to compete for a chance to participate in an all-expense paid cultural immersion in Melbourne.

The winner will collaborate with the respected Juddy Roller Studios in arty Fitzroy, and its founder Shaun Hossack, as well as contribute an artwork to regional Victoria’s Wall to Wall Festival Benalla 2018, the only street art festival of its kind in Australia!

Melbourne has long been heralded as the creative capital of Australia with a myriad of eclectic laneways, hidden bars, cafes, artist run art galleries and designer boutiques.

Visitors arriving to the city to sample Melbourne’s vibrant events, arts and design scene are often taken aback at the open air gallery that is created by the many colourful and outstanding commissioned artworks adorning the city’s streets and buildings. AC/DC Lane and Duckboard Place, Flinders Lane, Hosier and Rutledge Lane, Centre Place, Union Place and Croft Alley are just some of the city centre locations to spot a great new artwork. Inner north precincts of Fitzroy and Brunswick are also key to the movement’s core.

Wall to Fall Festival Benalla presented by Juddy Roller, as headed by Shaun Hossack, is Victoria’s first regional street art festival that runs annually in March. Artists involved in Wall to Wall Festival Benalla since its inception have included a host of local and internationally known names such as Rone, Adnate, Askew, Ears, Choq, Shawn Lu, Putos, Slicer, Rashe, Sirum, Kit Ritz, Guido Van Helton, Dvate, 23rd Key and Deams.

Aspiring street artists who wish to participate in the contest and vie for this experience of a lifetime in Melbourne are invited to submit their original artwork in digital format depicting any one or more of the following Melbourne related themes: food and drink; architecture, arts and culture, events and nature.

However, the final decision on the ultimate winner will be made by a Visit Victoria-appointed panel of judges, following a thorough review of the display of works.

The competition aims to bring affinity between Malaysia and Melbourne – with fierce dedication to promoting street art, discovering and exposing new artists.

“The exchange is an opportunity to further Melbourne’s arts credentials to our important Malaysian audiences and potential travellers, and of course for Melbourne to showcase its home-grown talent and the burgeoning street art movement,” said Celia Ho, Regional Manager, Visit Victoria.
