User Experience ~ BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray

Hey all, this time SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to share about her recent user experience with BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray. Personally she loves it for a refreshing & soothing natural mouth spray

Yes ✅, JUST spray for relief & comfort with Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray 👍🏻

MEGA BiO-LiFE introduces Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray, a natural & herbal solution for refreshing breath & mouth soothing. It contains a blend of 7️⃣ carefully-selected natural plant extracts and oils which are chamomile flower extract, honey, peppermint oil (Menthol), licorice root extract, eucalyptol, propolis powder & aloe vera powder to work in synergy & reducing ⬇️ bad breath

BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray is suitable for all age groups & can be used for mouth soothing & reducing ⬇️ bad breath. It’s also handy during Malaysia 🇲🇾’s current transition to endemic phase, festive ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ occasions, hot ☀️ & rainy ☔🌧️ seasons, or when consuming too much “heaty” or oily food

Smokers 🚬 who have other concerns like bad breath or dry mouth, can also use Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray for relief & comfort

BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray tastes natural & convenient to carry with you anytime & anywhere. To use, spray 2️⃣ to 3️⃣ pumps directly into the mouth 👄, as often as required ✅👍🏻

If your mouth feels dry & sticky with saliva that seems thick & stringy, you probably have a dry mouth 👄 What can be worse is if you have difficulty chewing, speaking & swallowing, offensive breath & mouth ulcers, which are all signs of an irritated mouth 👄

A dry & irritated mouth is usually caused by viral infection or allergies. However, there are also other factors like ambient air pollution, weather changes & smoking 🚬 that can aggravate the condition. As viral infections are the major causes of dry & irritated mouth, most cases do not require any antibiotic treatment

People usually turn to herbal remedies made of natural ingredients such as honey 🍯, propolis, aloe vera 💚 & peppermint 🌿, which are commonly used for anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, cooling & soothing to relieve the symptoms of dry & irritated mouth, such as bad breath or mouth ulcers. Now, a mouth spray made from natural herbal ingredients works more effectively while providing on-the-go convenience with BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray

Environmental Awareness Trip at Pulau Ketam, Selangor, Malaysia

Hey 👋🏻 all, Happy 65th Malaysia National Day 💕🇲🇾💗

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 as a go green supporter this time gonna sharing with you all about her amazing eco & environmental awareness familiarisation (FAM) trip recently at Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️, Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇾

This 2️⃣D1️⃣N FAM trip was well organised 👍🏻 by Holiday Link Sdn Bhd & being supported by Tourism Selangor, Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated, Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association (MITA) & Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam

.

The trip 1️⃣st started with a meet up of all trip participants (Mostly tourism players, travel agents, travel companies & tour guide) & then departed from South Port Passenger Terminal, Port Klang for a speed boat 🛥️ ride with Huat Huat Speedboat of approximately 30mins to Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝

Safe arrival to Pulau Ketam, met & greeted with the tour guide from Pulau Ketam, Mr Loo & then captured a group photo 📸 @ KETAM signboard. All trip participants then left their luggage at Sea Lion Hotel for Pulau Ketam guided walking tour of approximately 3️⃣ hours

During this walking🚶🏻‍♀️tour, all trip participants get to explore the island’s local community & facilities ie. Balai Bomba 🚒🧑‍🚒 Sukarela, Government clinic of 💯 years old 🏥, police station, Maybank 🏧🏦, power station ⛽, temple ⛩️, 3️⃣ primary schools & 1️⃣ secondary school 🏫, the only 1️⃣ dried prawn processing factory on the island 🏝 , several seafood wholesalers, street wall art & many more

Do check out her happy travel to Pulau Ketam with guided walk tour & hotel check in TikTok clip captured via 📹🌐

.

After the walking tour, all enjoyed tasty fresh seafood lunch served in Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍽️😋👍🏻

After lunch, met with Tok Chua Kim Lin, the President of Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam, Negeri Selangor. Tok Chua Kim Lin has encouraged all trip participants to organise more tours/ trips to visit to Pulau Ketam. During the met-up session, Mr. Kenny Ng, Vice President (VP) Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tok Chua Kim Lin to organise more cleaning & rubbish collection campaigns as rubbish are observed during the walking tour in Pulau Ketam & this may affect the potential tourism growth of this island to the tourists. This session ended with a tea time treat by MPKK Bagan Pulau Ketam @ Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍽️🥣🍤🥤😋👍🏻  as an appreciation to all trip participants

Checked in to Sea Lion Hotel 🏨🛏️, then the trip participants also get to enjoy an approximately 2️⃣ hours Pulau Ketam boat tour 🛥️ to visit the fish farm, Sg. Lima, eagle 🦅 feeding, dolphin (Yes ✅, all so happy as seen some small dolphins 🐬🐬 from far), fish wall art & Mangrove Villa homestay inspection

Do check out her happy boat tour ride TikTok clip captured via 📹🌐

All trip participants ended the day with a satisfied fresh seafood platter dinner at Restoran Jia Jia 🍽️😋👍🀼ôŽ°Š

The highlight of this trip that SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed personally is the visit & environmental awareness program at the Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Recycling Station (Tzu Chi) ♻️ which established since 25 Oct 2011 in Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️

All trip participants get to participate in the local environmental awareness program with Tzu Chi volunteers. The program started with an introduction of Tzu Chi Association & their go green 💚♻️ efforts by Tzu Chi Association in Pulau Ketam to raise the environmental awareness. From this session, all trip participants got to know that the rubbish condition in Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️ has been improved better since the go green awareness efforts by Tzu Chi to the local island residents here , of course it can be improved greater for a cleaner Pulau Ketam in near future for the local island residents as well as local & foreign visitors

.

Next, a warm up body session with a light aerobic exercise led by the Tzu Chi volunteers. Then, followed with a split of 2️⃣ groups trip participants for an outdoor activity to the nearby recycle collection station to assemble & classification of reusable resources, then collected all the reusable resources into the reusable fish nets & returned to Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Station ♻️

After the group photo 📸 session of all trip participants with the reusable resources collected, hand washing session & then the reusable resources processing explanation session by Tzu Chi volunteers. All trip participants get to understand the brief features of the processing & transferring reusable ♻️✅ resources by the different grade of plastics

It’s really not easy to do recycling 💚♻️, of course the 1️⃣st buy in of the local residents to willingly put in the reusable resources into the collection station set up. However, there are a minority of local residents that misused the collection station as another dustbin on the island 🙄

After the collection of reusable resources, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has learnt that lots of tedious works involved especially the separation of different parts of a plastic reusable resources collected. Other reusable resources collected are glass 🍾, boxes/ cardboard 📦, papers ğŸ—žï¸, books 📚, CDs etc.

Guess what❓⁉️

Glass bottles 🍾🍾 can be recycled by using a special machine to crushing them into small glass pieces, then can be mixed into soil for plantation 🌱🌿🌳 purposes

Amazing learning gained 👍🏻

Yeah‼️ A yummy healthy vegetarian lunch 🍽️😋👍🏻 prepared by Tzu Chi volunteers as an appreciation to all trip participants for their visit & go green activity participation by all trip participants

All enjoyed the lunch happily 😃😁

.

The program is then followed by Q&A, as well as an experience sharing session. During the sharing session, Tzu Chi volunteers have encouraged all the trip participants to include an environmental awareness session in their tours or trips organised moving forward, so that more people will be encouraged to start their own go green habits respectively ğŸ’šâ™»ï¸ğŸŒŽ

Ms Yap SC of Holiday Link Sdn Bhd, the trip organiser has shared her appreciation 🙏🏻💗 to all trip participants for their participation in this FAM trip & encouraged all trip participants to start organising similar environmental awareness tours/ trips moving forward

Ms Yik Thim of Tourism Selangor shared that her shopping habit now is too lazy to buy 🛍️ It means if she knows she will throw the item subsequently, she will not buy it now ❌🛍️ It’s a good way to reduce on 3️⃣R efforts. She has added that she does home cooking 🧑🏻‍🍳, so now she uses her kitchen waste / food waste from her daily home cooking preparation as home plant fertilizer. Then, her home plant 🌿🌱 will then grow as her own home cooking ingredients. Amazing way of being environmentally friendly ğŸ’šğŸŒŽ

.

So, some of the foods that SiennyLovesDrawing personally tasted from this Kampong Food Fiesta as below,

Bakso

It’s an Indonesian meatball. It’s pronunciation from Hokkien 肉酥 ie. Bah-so͘, then its Indonesian name Bakso, with a silent “k”This popular street food dish is very popular in Malang, Indonesia 🇮🇩 & is said to be Chinese in origin. This is why the texture is so similar to fish & beef balls you’ll find in Chinese cuisine

Ohh ya…Depending on the type of meatballs used, it might be called Bakso Ayam (Chicken meatballs), Bakso sapi (Beef meatballs) or Bakso babi (Pork meatballs) etc.When served with noodles & broth, the dish is bakso noodles

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing prefers to enjoy just the chewy bakso of any meat with sweet sauce & a little spicy sambal. Alternatively, she will enjoy a bakso noodles bowl at times 🍜 Read more via 🌐 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakso

Batagor

It’s an abbreviation from Ba for Bakso (meatballs), Ta for Tahu (ie. Tofu), Gor for goreng (Deep-fried) ~ A popular street food in Bandung, Sunda region of West Java, Indonesia 🇮🇩 Also said to be an adaptation of the Chinese Indonesian “Siu Mai”. Tofu & wonton skins are usually stuffed with fish or meat paste & then steamed & coat with batter & deep-fried, then served with spicy sweet peanut 🥜 sauce

It’s truly yummy addictive to enjoy all with the peanut sauce dipping 😋👍🏻 Read more via 🌐 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batagor

Lumpia

It’s 1️⃣ of the various types of spring rolls commonly found in Indonesia 🇮🇩 , also Philippine 🇵🇭. Lumpia are made of thin paper-like or crepe-like pastry skin with enveloping savory or sweet fillings

It’s often served as an appetizer or snack & might be served deep fried or fresh

SiennyLovesDrawing tried the one with beef & vegetables in it from this fiesta & it’s crispy juicy to enjoy 😋👍🏻 Read more via 🌐 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumpia

Telur Gulung (Egg rolls)

It’s a variation of fried egg where an egg 🥚 is fried & then rolled using a skewer which is usually made from bamboo wood or stick 🦯

As the egg 🥚 (Whisk egg) is cooking, quickly use the ‘satay stick’ & spin the stick around so that it collects the egg around the stick

The cooked & fried rolled egg on stick, will be placed on a cup 🥡 ready to be served along with the sauces

Come on, come on… SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed herself here with a sip a drink & enjoy its special local foods here

How Heated Tobacco Product Help Smoker To Reduce Harm?

How Heated Tobacco Product Help Smoker To Reduce Harm?

This story is to help the smokers out there who consider reducing harm but unable or unwilling to quit smoking. This is not just for your own health, but also for your loved ones & people surrounding you.

Your truly actually born in a smoker’s family, yes, her late dad & brother both with smoking cigarettes habit. Since young, your truly really hate the smells of 2nd hand smoke in the house, on the clothes etc.

2nd hand smoke is a combination of smoke from the burning end of a cigarette & the smoke breathed out by smokers. It’s not healthy where our living environment is being polluted with 2nd hand smoke.

Your truly always worry about the health issue caused by the 2nd hand smokes especially now with a small kid in the family

Yes, her little niece as you all may already know love to her little niece from some of her stories here

How Heated Tobacco Product Help Smoker To Reduce Harm?

Guess what?

From your truly’s recent reading about the heated tobacco product (HTP) and the heat-not-burn technology used by it. I think this would be great news if everyone opted for such smoke-free alternative, for a tobacco harm reduction, then a healthy smoke-free future for all

Her brother refuses to quit smoking, and your truly will continue trying her very best to recommend & convince her brother to opt for this smoke free alternative and the idea of tobacco harm reduction (THR)

Yes, your truly is looking forward to a healthy smoke-free future absolutely, and start her effort from her loved one. Do you share the same thought too?

How Heated Tobacco Product Help Smoker To Reduce Harm?

Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR)

So, what is tobacco harm reduction?

Do you all know that the vapor (not smoke) released from heated tobacco products generally contains lower levels of harmful ingredients than the smoke from regular cigarettes?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as of January 8, 2020, has authorized heated tobacco products such as IQOS & Eclipse for sale in the US

Cigarette Tar

Cigarette Tar has historically been used to measure cigarette yields using a number of machine-based, standardized processes. It’s a machine-based weight measurement of residual particulate matter in cigarette smoke once nicotine & water have already removed

.

Generally. it’s not used as a measurement in connection with smoke-free alternatives because the chemical composition of the aerosol (or ‘vapor’) is fundamentally different from cigarettes in that they don’t burn tobacco

Combustion/ burning

Guess what?

When a cigarette is lit it burns tobacco at temperatures is of up to 900°C. The temperature just so high up! And the process of burning (combusting) tobacco actually causes the production of the majority and high levels of harmful chemicals detected in cigarette smoke. The high temperature of combustion generates vast numbers & high levels of harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke

Smoke is actually a type of aerosol that is generated during combustion, the scientific name for ‘burning.’ And while smoke is an aerosol, not all aerosols are smoke. Smoke is the result of combustion or burning. Aerosol is not associated with combustion & has reduced levels of harmful chemicals. You may check out to read on for more details in this sharing of ~ A Discussion on Non-Combusted Tobacco Products via

That’s the reason why 2nd hand smoke or cigarette smoke in general is harmful.

Heat-Not-Burn Technology / Products

Yes, avoiding burning tobacco can lead to a significant reduction in exposure to harmful & potentially harmful chemicals compared to cigarette smoke

With Heat-Not-Burn Technology, the device will heat a disposable tobacco stick with a thin metallic blade. The stick remained at a controlled heating temperature up to 350°C, without combustion, fire, ash or smoke. Heated tobacco products will be heated to release the nicotine from the tobacco leaves naturally

So, after your truly have learned from her reading about the heated tobacco product and the Heat-Not-Burn Technology. Your truly decided to introduce her brother to this less harmful smoke-free alternative. At least he switched to product such as the heated tobacco product & adopted the Tobacco Harm Reduction approach, then the family environment & surrounding will be smoke-free, also able to reduce the harm for himself and the family
