Kuala Lumpur, 7 March 2018 – The Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) is partnering with Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing mobile classifieds marketplace for its Carousell LIVE! flea market happening this weekend, 10 and 11 March 2018, at Publika, Solaris Dutamas. The event will be used to raise fund for MRCS’ activities such as the disaster relief operation, health and community service, capacity building as well as in youth development.

The event will provide a physical platform for MRCS to sell their pre-loved goods donated by the public as part of its on-going efforts to raise funds. The items will be listed on Carousell to extend the fundraising’s outreach beyond Klang Valley.

Carousell LIVE! will also feature booths by 20 top Carousellers and celebrities such as Zahiril Adzim, Sheira Ayoub, Nadia Brian, Sarah Hidelbrand, Nabil Mahir, Shalma Ainaa, and Natrah, who will be selling new and pre-loved items in the fashion, accessories, art and electronic goods categories. Visitors will almost certainly find some great deals for these pre-loved items.

This marks Carousell’s continued commitment towards a community-driven mobile marketplace, which promotes a sustainable lifestyle.  This vision is very much shared by MRCS, with its strong foundation built on humanity, independence, neutrality, impartiality, voluntary service, unity and universality, the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

“Carousell LIVE! is more than just an avenue for Carousellers to display and sell their goods. It is also a platform for us to contribute back to the society through such significant partnerships, like this one with MRCS. As an established humanitarian society that has dedicated its services to Malaysians for 70 years, we hope Malaysians will show their support at this event and assist in funding their operations,” said Lucas Ngoo, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Carousell.

The fundraising collaboration highlights the importance of joint engagement to build a safer and disaster-resilient country.

“MRCS gratefully welcomes this fundraising partnership in the spirit of community engagement and reaffirm our commitment to the alleviation of human suffering in the aftermath of natural and man-made disasters and other related challenges in the country,” said Dato’ Sayed A. Rahman Sayed Mohd, Secretary General of MRCS.

MRCS is presently one of 191 National Societies that are members of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), which together with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) are components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

Mr & Mrs Smith makes a splash with Frecobol Carioca


Singapore – Mr & Mrs. Smith, the travel club for hotel lovers, has teamed up with luxury lifestyle brand Frescobol Carioca, to create its first ever swimwear collection.

The limited-­edition capsule collection is released on 1 May to mark the beginning of Mr & Mrs Smith’s 15th anniversary celebrations.

Frescobol Carioca is a brand inspired by the golden age of Brazilian beachlife;; their tailored swimwear inspired by the colours of the Copacabana, Rio’s thrumming nightlife and its swirling sidewalk mosaics. Alongside clothing, their skilled marceneiros craft beautiful bats, surf and skateboards from hand-­collected driftwood and hardwood offcuts.

The four-­piece, resort-­ready Mr & Mrs Smith collection includes two pairs of classic chevron-­printed swim trunks, a linen beach towel, and a pair of wooden bats, all designed using Smith’s trademark red and navy blue to ensure a classic coastal look for beaches in Brazil and beyond.

A short film – and a set of stylish stills – shot on location in Rio by acclaimed photographer and art director Alex Bramall will accompany the launch of the collaboration. And the Frescobol Carioca team have hand-­picked their hotel hotlist for summer 2018 – a ‘Where to wear’ guide, if you will – which will launch simultaneously at mrandmrssmith.com/frescobolcarioca. The range will be on sale for a limited time at frescobolcarioca.com and at selected Frescobol Carioca stores from 1 May.

Mr & Mrs Smith co-­founder James Lohan said: ‘We always relish the opportunity to bring what we do to life and this swimwear collection is the perfect way to mark our birthday year with a physical product. Frescobol Carioca is a brand we’ve known for some time and the absolute perfect partner for such a collaboration: creative, stylish and devoted to the highest quality craftsmanship.’

Frescobol Carioca co-­founder Harry Brantly said: ‘Mr and Mrs. Smith and Frescobol Carioca share many of the same loyal clients, and it has been truly exciting to work on this capsule collection to celebrate the brand’s 15th anniversary. These exclusive pieces have been designed with the sophisticated traveler in mind, and to celebrate our common values of quality, luxury, and attention to detail. It’s been super fun to see them come to life on Ipanema beach on a scorching hot day!’

‘HUAT’ you need for hassle free travel this Chinese New Year

‘HUAT’ you need for hassle free travel this Chinese New Year
The upcoming Chinese New Year festivities are around the corner, and it’s a time that brings together family and friends to ring in good luck and fortune for the coming year. Leading up to this festive season, if you are traveling out of state to celebrate, or simply taking the opportunity to travel over the long weekend with your family, it is bound to be a busy period preparing for the journey.

If traveling with young children, this can increase the anxiety of parents that want to be prepared for the unexpected, and ensure basic travel necessities are packed. To provide traveling families with ease of mind during this period, 3M Malaysia has compiled a list of supplies that should be part of your travel kit so that you and your family can enjoy the holiday and ring in the Lunar New Year with luck and prosperity.

Prepare your first aid kit
Whether they're out of routine, jet-lagged, or eating less healthily, kids always seem to get ill on holiday. Have a first aid kit that includes a thermometer, antiseptic wipes, and medicines suited for young children and adults. For kids with allergies, do ensure to make a visit to your pediatrician to obtain the required medications in case of emergencies.

Also, minor cuts or scrapes aren’t fun, but they don't need to ruin the day! Keep a box or two of Nexcare™ Clear Waterproof Bandages on hand to provide 360° sealing of the wound to protect against water, dirt, and germs. For young children, try the Nexcare™ Tattoo Waterproof Bandages design that they are sure to love!

Giving mummies peace of mind
There’s nothing more distressing when your baby is uncomfortable due to a nappy rash, sensitive skin or a skin allergy. Diaper changing can be tiresome as some nappy rash creams on the market can be heavy and sticky – which makes your baby even more uncomfortable, especially when it requires multiple applications. 

To give mother’s everywhere peace of mind during long trips, and to make diaper changing fun again, why not try the 3M™ Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream?  It’s Paraben free, pH-balanced, hypoallergenic and protects baby skin for long-lasting comfort and healing in preventing nappy rash. It is cost-effective as all you need is a pea-size amount to cover the entire affected area. It also resists wash-off and requires fewer applications than typical moisture barriers, saving time and effort. 

Bring on the snacks
As adults know all too well, eating gives you something to do. Pack some healthy snacks for the children to keep them occupied. Healthy snacks such as sliced veggies or fruits, filtered water or juices, and milk biscuits can help keep hunger pangs away in between meals -  and avoids bringing out the hangry side of children.

When you can’t hold it in any longer!
Ever been in a situation where you needed a toilet but were either stuck in a massive traffic gridlock or just missed the rest stop area? The 3M™ Portable Toilet may prove to the best thing for emergency relief when there are no toilets nearby, especially with young children in the car.

The disposable toilet system is compact in size, with revolutionary technology to absorb liquid waste and turns it into an odorless, spill-proof bag that is non-toxic and safe for disposal.

Stay minty fresh on the road
Perhaps you just pulled an all-nighter driving or stopped for a nasi lemak break just before arriving at your destination. Either way, the 3M™ Clinpro™ Tooth Crème can be used in place of your usual toothpaste. With no rinsing involved, simply put it on your toothbrush and brush away! Remember not to swallow any of crème and you are good to go!

In conjunction with Chinese New Year celebrations, 3M Malaysia will be running attractive promotions and discounts from 1st February to 21st February 2018 on Lazada! Buy one Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream 92 grams and get one FREE Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream 28 grams. Also, consumers can enjoy discounts up to 28% on Clinpro™ Tooth Crème and 50% discount off the 3M™ Portable Toilet three-piece packs.

Also, enjoy a 20% discount on Nexcare™ products featured above from 1st February to 21st February 2018 at www.guardian.com.my

Hi folks,

2018 will be a great year for everyone especially to those who are determined to buy their first cars because car price has been going down slightly and the need to have a car has been increasing these days either for single people or married couples. Due to the expanding need of a family to own a car to accommodate the whole family, this year might be a good choice to start finding the right family car at Cars.com by following these few tips.

Make sure it is comfortable
The first thing that you should consider when choosing a family car is that it should be comfortable for the whole family. Make sure there is enough space to spare not only for the family but for your luggage as well because you might not want to make it look cramped.

Think safety first
When it comes to protecting your children and family, safety would always come first because no matter what happens, your family and loved ones are always the most important thing that you should take into consideration when looking for a car.

A little bit of style
If you have an extra budget for your vehicle, why don’t invest a bit in style because your whole family might be appreciative towards your effort? Just because you are no longer a single guy, that doesn’t mean that you have to throw away your image.

Think green
