A Free Ride to the Hospital for Senior Citizens in the Klang Valley

My grandma who is 86 years old has been independently living on her own. She still cooks and cleans but she has cut down on gardening since she was diagnosed with high blood pressure last year.

Since her diagnosis, my dad and I have been ferrying her for regular hospital visits and I'm glad I'm self employed so I can take the day off during her visits. If you've been a patient or a carer of a patient who visits government hospitals, you will know that there is usually a very long wait for your turn to see the doctor.

Not everyone has the advantage of taking the day off and I'm glad JomTaxi is there to offer a temporary solution.

Jomtaxi is a free smartphone app that allows anyone to order a licensed taxi in seconds. Launched in February 2016, they currently have 2000 taxis registered with them.

They currently have a campaign which offers a FREE ride to senior citizens above 60 years old.

Summary of the campaign:-
1.     Absolutely FREE RIDE to hospital/medical centre within Klang Valley. Therefore the “drop off” should be hospital/medical center

2.     It applies for single ride (so you should only redeem this ride when you absolutely CANNOT drive or get to the hospital on your own- It's like a GOLD ticket!)

3.     The booking can be done by 3rd party (son/daughter and etc)

4.     The campaign is for senior citizens who are above 60 years old

5.     Campaign ends 31st December 2016

How are they different from other Taxi hailing apps? 

MULTILINGUAL: The App caters for English, Mandarin and Malay Language

CHOOSE DRIVER: The app allows customer to choose the driver based on his profile, picture and other comments from customers

KNOW when the taxi arrives: The driver sends you a “Buzz” when he arrives so you know exactly when he is outside waiting for you

ADD FAVOURITE/BLOCK: Customers can either add favourite or block drivers

CALL BACK: Customer can call the driver directly just in case they left their valuables behind inside the taxi

PROTECTED: Drivers and Passengers are protected under TuneProtect which covers accident, dead, loss or damage luggage/belongings.

You can download the apps from the Google Play Store at this link:

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.

NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.

An hour later, the show began once Datuk Nancy Yeoh, President & CEO of STYLO International and Chairman of MBSTYLOAFF arrived but not before Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson…

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
