Do you want to spend the night with sharks?

So you know Liam and I are now fans of Scott’s DHA Gummies and it’s all thanks to attending the Scott’s DHA Gummies Launch a while back.

Let me tell you about the day of the launch. We woke up bright and early but it did not start as smoothly as I had wished to because Liam decided to hate on his carseat that very morning.

In this picture here he was hanging out of my car while waving me off as though I was a dirty mosquito.

It took me a while and finally with the help of a cartoon on my phone, he calmed down and I managed to strap him in. Mummy = 1, Liam = 0.

We drove to Aquaria KLCC without the help of any navigation system thanks to Liam still holding my phone hostage. It must be all the Scott’s Emulsion I consumed as a child that I managed to reach Aquaria without making a single wrong turn! Thank you Scott’s.

Liam looking grumpy cause I took his phone away for this wefie at Aquaria’s entrance.

He quickly warmed up though. I think he knew that he’s in for some great fun and awesome gummies :)

And it’s official, Scott’s DHA Gummies are here to stay. Delicious, packed with DHA goodness and not coated in sugar.

Liam became a member of Scott’s Bright Little Explorers too – a platform for nurturing children’s curiosity and sense of adventure, launched in conjunction with the unveiling of Scott’s DHA gummies.

Thanks to the “Scott’s Bright Little Explorers” platform, Liam got a chance to take part in a hunt for aquatic exhibits and facts at Aquaria KLCC.

It was impossible to take a picture of him as he kept slapping my selfie stick away :(

But I think I probably had way more fun than Liam. This shark looks like it could be well-meaning, cauliflower-haired female relative that I’m missing in my life Hahahaha

Do check out Scott’s FB page for more fun activities for your little ones under “Scott’s Bright Little Explorers”.

Anyway, wouldn’t you like to win a chance to ‘Sleep with the Sharks’? Yes, really, you and your bubba could spend a night with the magnificent creatures at Aquaria KLCC!! Mummies, you could also win RM100 worth of AEON shopping vouchers on top of the slumber with sharks.

Imagine the look of wonderment on your child’s face when he or she watches a shark swimming by. Or when they look up to find a stingray smiling at them from above? The kind of imaginary conversations that would transpire between your kid and the mighty shark? I know Liam would be excited to introduce one of his Hot Wheels to Mr. Shark, haha.

To join this contest, all you have to do is:

1. Ask your mini one to complete this caption:

“If I could sleep next to a shark, I will ask Mr. Shark…..” (in less than 25 words), then guide your mini to draw a very simple happy shark on a piece of paper.

2. Snap a photo of his or her drawing and post it in the comments below along with the caption.

3. 10 most creative answers will win a pair of tickets to experience ‘Sleep with the Sharks’ and you moms will enjoy RM100 shopping vouchers from AEON.

The awesome Scott’s® DHA Gummies are here!

Many of you must be familiar with Scott’s Emulsion cod liver oil. My brothers and I grew up taking it daily. I remember dreading the original flavour and how much I disliked it. It must had been tough for my parents to wrangle us into taking a spoon of the emulsion.

Then, they came out with the orange flavoured emulsion and I felt like my young life had changed for the better haha.

Well, fast forward to the present. I’ve always have plans to give Scott’s Emulsion to Liam but deep inside, I knew that it means that there will be a challenging battle of wills! So, imagine my happiness when I was told that there are now gummies which contain DHA by Scott’s??

You mean I have access to DHA goodness in delicious, Liam-friendly gummies without the fishy taste!?? TAKE ALL MY MONEY!

The gummies are available in both orange and strawberry flavours.

They contain DHA and for those that don’t know what DHA is, it’s a type of Omega-3 fatty acid which is a major building block of the brain and is also required for the maintenance of healthy eyes.

While most of us mummies are aware of the benefits of DHA for our children, many children are still not gaining the required DHA in their dietary intake due to various reasons, mainly it’s the lack of oily fish and seafood in diet. These gummies come in handy to support a balanced diet for the kids especially if they dislike food that contains DHA.

The gummies also contain bonus Vitamin D – which aids absorption of calcium as well as support healthy growth and development.

They come in the fun shapes of a crab, fish and octopus and are not coated in sugar. Best of all, they’re not sticky so no-mess!!!!

They gummies are available in several pack sizes – 3 pieces (RM0.99), 15 pieces (RM9.90) and 60 pieces (RM34.40).

Liam just loves these new Scott’s® DHA Gummies!

I know the gummies are recommended for kids aged 4 and above but my 2 year old is not letting that stop him!

Look at the intensity!

Give me moreeeeeeeeeeeee!

Can’t blame him, I find myself taxing his gummies all the time too :)

Healthy baby skin with Zwitsal.

Recently Liam and I found ourselves in the company of Zwitsal, a baby product that has been in the market since year 1900. Yes, that means it is 116 years old!

The reason why you probably have not heard about it despite its long history is because it’s always been a European brand. In fact it is the number 1 brand in Netherlands.

Fortunately for us on this side of the world, it has decided to enter (or re-enter, apparently they were around some decades ago?) the Asian market and now we’re all able to get our hands on this lovely baby skincare that is known for being wonderful to our bubba’s skin.

Zwitsal basically has two ranges of products; “Classic” and “Natural”. All its products under the “Classic” umbrella contain extract from Canola flowers – a naturally moisturising ingredient. As for “Natural”, the products contain natural ingredients such as milk, honey, aloe vera and even citronella.

Zwitsal is also safe for sensitive baby skin as they have been tested for hypo-allergenic with pH balanced formulation so it is definitely a bonus!

# – The “Classic” range.

# – The “Natural” range.

Firstly, lets talk about Zwitsal’s bath products. Love the “Milk & Honey Baby Bath”. Liam’s always smells delicious and nommable after a bath. Needless to say, his skin loves it too.

# – Zwitsal’s baby bath products.

I never needed baby shampoo before but Liam’s hair grown a lot now so he needs to get his hair washed and Zwitsal’s “2-in-1 Hair and Body” bath really comes in handy. It is especially great for travelling as I don’t need to lug too many things just for his bathtime! It’s got aloe vera and Pro Vitamin B5 in it which is great for hair. Oh, and it contains celery and candlenut too. Pretty interesting I would say! Again, something I steal for myself sometimes too, hehehehe.

# – My son has hair now!

My favourite product from Zwitsal is definitely the “Baby Skin Protector Lotion with Citronella”. It’s a moisturiser and also a mosquito repellent in one convenient tube! There’s none like it in the market currently!

Gawd knows all us mummies have been struggling with keeping our bubs from being mossie feed. I’m really bad with remembering to put on mozzie patches on Liam but I moisturise his skin daily so this is just perfect for us. I am also not going to say how many times I have nicked Liam’s Zwitsal moisturiser for myself hehe.

For mummies who prefer the classic skin lotion (cause you’re a purist), Zwitsal has one infused with just canola and jojoba oil and is perfect to be applied to the entire body after bath time. I use it pretty regularly too when we’re at home with air-conditioning on, you know when there’s no threat from beastly mosquitoes.

# – Moisturise and keeping away from the mozzies.

One of the great things about Zwitsal that has really made an impression on me is its scent. Whether it’s the baby powder, skin lotion or bath solution, it’s extremely mild and pleasant and it doesn’t mask Liam’s natural scent.

I never really understood why some other brands made such strongly scented baby products cause I’ve never met a baby who has B.O, if you know what I mean? Nobody wants their kids to smell like a working woman’s handbag, hello? So thank you Zwitsal for not making overpowering smelling stuff!

To my delight, Zwitsal’s “Fresh Floral Baby Power” smells faintly of fresh roses and vanilla. So delicious and it’s infused with canola oil so hello softer baby skin!

# – Smell of roses and vanilla, yummy!

All in all, we’re very happy with Zwitsal. I most definitely will recommend Zwitsal if you’re looking for affordable and safe baby skincare. It’s available at most pharmacies near you.
