Grab this 20% off on your first purchase from www.greenwellness.my

Often we as parent are looking for organic, non-toxic, all natural, non-GMO, and even eco-friendly products for our beloved children. We end up driving all the way to the shop, only to know that the item you are looking for is not available on the display shelf. Then we go pointing to the sales person asking them do you have this in your store? We even challenge them to check properly in store - hoping that there might be one at least - which they had overlook. Lol - that's me when I got desperate.

The time, the drama into getting car park and so on...

Shopping online has been useful for us, the busy mummy. From clothes, baby item to food and now taking a look at one that I can shop for healthy groceries, supplements, oral care and more.

I personally love the mobile apps version of www.greenwellness.my.


Take a look at Top 10 best seller and browse through most buyer's favorite - you might want to get some new goodies that worth a try too. Else if you do have time, you may browse each and every product or search for your item at "search" in PC version.

OK, I do take a long time browsing - eyeing on new stuff. What's great is it features some facts of the benefits, what's the product are for, the awards and profile of the products. Besides purchasing, we gain more knowledge. ;)



What I love best is they would have an expiry date noted for the product. This would enable you to judge whether to buy some extras should you spot any value buy/ special promo / first purchase special offer or monthly discount.

 

Thanks again to Green Wellness, remember that you are entitled for a 
20% off for 1st 20 buyers for 1st-time purchase only.
Thereafter 10% off but limited to next 80 buyers for 1st-time purchase only.
if you enter code - "svjessie' during check out at voucher box. 

Yay. Got the products within 3 days. Fast and reliable. Product received in good quality and the expiry is within 2017 to 2018. Packaging in a nice hard box.


Happy Kids. Cant wait to open it all.

Must Try is Nature Plus SPIRU-TEIN Exotic Red Fruit. Aromatic and could be taken with your daily milk, juices or cold water for that nutritious boost for the day.

Spiru-tein needs to be taken cold to preserve the nutrition and "yumminess", won't work with hot or even room temperature water.

Thanks again to Green Wellness, remember that you are entitled for a

The Best Reason for Owning a Rental Apartment

The world today is changing and people everywhere are looking for ways to make a living for themselves. If you want to potentially own a rental property, then you are just one in the growing community of those who want to own rentals. There are many reasons to seek out buying a rental apartment, and if you have any sort of entrepreneurial ability or skills then you could absolutely make some money on the side. Consider these reasons as potential signs you could make it in the apartment rental and property management world.

You are Handy and Can Do Repairs
Believe it or not, every home needs repairs and general maintenance. If you are someone who happens to be good when it comes to general repairs and maintenance, then you have a major advantage on your side. Just because you have those skills doesn’t necessarily mean you should be a property owner by yourself, but if you can do most major projects yourself and don’t need to subcontract them out then you are already significantly ahead of the competition in the apartment rental world. 

Apartments have a lot of costs in general and for a lot of reasons you could wind up spending money just to keep the business going. However, if you can do most of the repairs yourself then you not only know you aren’t being overcharged for markup, but you aren’t paying the labor costs either because you are doing it all by yourself. Instead of paying someone else to push every high end item, you can take care of what you need to within your own units in a functional way and you can also ensure you are minimizing the cash flow out of your pocket simply by being handy.

There’s a College Nearby
The idea of having students nearby might not be the best for some people, but if you are looking to rent out apartments and there is a college or university in the vicinity then go look for apartments for sale with PropertyGuru Malaysia immediately. The key you want to remember is that students typically receive student loans and other forms of scholarship money to finance their education, so if you can get students to live in your apartment then you are almost guaranteed they will have rent in one shape or another.  Obviously you need to be careful in this regard as some of the students may not qualify for student loans or might not have the funding that is necessary. However, for many students in general they will pick up their student loan check and then immediately turn around and pay rent for a full semester or a full year at a time which means you won’t have to chase around after them and try to collect rent checks every month.

You Live in a Tourism Spot or a Destination City
If you live in an area where there is tourism, fun, and things to do, then there will always be people moving into the city and looking to improve their quality of life. Obviously it will depend upon what, where, and why, but for the most part if there is going to continue to be an influx of people then you can always find individuals who will be looking for a place to live. 

The key is to continue providing a spot where you can easily be right by the action so you can be easily found. However, once you have picked up a rental property that isn’t far from the fun and the important destinations, you will be surprised at how high the rents can go and how much cash you can earn just for owning a quality rental property in the right location.

Your Region is Growing
One of the best places to own a rental property and to have rental apartments making you money is in an area that is growing. Whether it is due to business, a natural resource, or even just because people love the area and expansion is happening organically, then you will already know how much opportunity is available just by going outside and seeing what is going up and being built each and every day. When a region starts to boom there is opportunity for everyone, and that means people will start to come in from everywhere in order to find their own opportunity and capitalize on the growth.

When you are thinking about the climate that is a rental apartment and how you can make money renting to others, this is the perfect scenario for anyone to have. Not only are you able to see just how powerful the renting market is in general, but as long as you can just secure a few of those people coming into the area to fill your units then you can be wildly successful in the field of owning and leasing out units. Remember, you don’t need to catch each and every person that is coming into the region in order to be profitable. You only need to capture a few in order to be able to tap into a very small portion of the market and bring in just a few to reach success. 

As you can see, there are more than enough opportunities all over the world why someone would want to think about renting. However, if you happen to have something on your side other than just the simplicity of wanting to rent to others then you could find yourself in a prime opportunity of being successful. Obviously you will want to have the entrepreneurial spirit to actually be passionate at your position, but at the same time it only makes sense that you are set up for success with an outside factor or two as well when it comes to renting out apartments and managing your own rental units. Demand is good, and if you have it in your area for a specific reason than you can be successful.

New Tourist Attraction "KL UPSIDE DOWN HOUSE" @ KL TOWER

Wanted a quick one hour date with the kids while having some fun?

We take a peek to the latest "KL Upside Down House" @ KL Tower. Thanks for having us. Kids had nice experience exploring new ventures in town. ;)

Our photo moments:



The waiting area

A sneak peek to what's inside...My boy wanted a picture this way. He just know what I wanted. Well, to say he give me lovely ideas.

Big spidey. The red hanging bra got my attention. LOL 

Love this spontaneous piece! The ironman in action


My personal judgement:
a) The house is lovely for some photography. Spend some time to catch good angles. Do see some samples of photo available in the house, or get some help from the staff on best view, so that you don't waste time.
b) Make sure you turn to Rich Tone HDR mode when taking picture using your mobile phones.
c) Watch out for steep staircase inside the house
d) The house is not so big, hence best time to go is in the morning when it's not too crowded, else your pictures would end up with lots of people in the background.
e) I felt that things in the house should be placed lower so that the kids be able to reach it, for a better photo caption.

Other than above, it's a nice family bonding time. You may also want to visit KL Tower, and the surroundings place of interest. Have Fun! and Happy Parenting!
