Top 10 About GCH LARGEST Distribution Centre Malaysia

September 19, 2018 5
GCH Retail Distribution Centre officiated the Country's Largest Supermarket & Hypermarket Distribution Centre right here in Kajang, Malaysia! This Distribution Centre worth over RM116 million, vows to bring consumers nationwide fresher products with more value for your Ringgit.

Being Malaysian, I usually get my groceries from Giant Malaysia because I like the freshness it has to offer and it's reasonably priced. Now with this huge distribution centre here, Malaysians will be able to enjoy a fresher product at all Giant, Cold Storage, Jason's Food Hall and Mercato's in Peninsula Malaysia.

Today I was taken on a short tour in the Distribution Centre, it was a fun experience and really chilly one too...brrrr...

There's actually more areas in the DC that I've yet to explore and may not want to (because it's COLD!) but here's what's in store :
Frozen (-20°C) stores processed foods, frozen vegetables, ready meals, desserts, etc.
Perishable (+1°C) stores milk, dairy products (cheeses, yogurts, butters), delicatessen, drinks, etc.
Processing of meats (+1°C) stores beef, buffalo and lamb, fish and poultry products.

Citrus fruits (+5°C) stores lemons, oranges, tangerines, pomelo
Produce (+10°C) stores fresh vegetables and fruits - from local farmers, imported specialty and seasonal produce

Local tropical fruits (+13°C) stores banana, watermelon, papaya

Produce (+25°C) stores onions, potatoes, garlic, ginger, dried chillies

Fun facts! Red onions make up approximately 12% out of the overall products that are distributed to stores in terms of volume! Followed by potatoes at 8% and carrots at 3%! (Malaysians love their ABC soup ke? I know I do, haha!)

There's are the Top 10 Things To Know About GCH's LARGEST "Gateway For Freshness" in raising the standard of "Freshness" in your groceries!

1. COMMITMENT - For 70 years, GCH has been committed to bringing innovative, value driven, fresh retail experiences to Malaysian consumers nationwide.
2. FACILITY - The state of art facility here at Kajang, represents a part of GCH continuing financial commitment and support at an organisational level to the idea of "Freshness".
3. THE BEST QUALITY - Getting the best local products from farm to table, while ensuring the highest standards of cleanliness at every point and bringing consumers value in every purchase.

4. VALUE WORTH - GCH always strives to bring consumers value in every purchase while keeping the price affordable, yet, maintaining a high standard of fresh quality.

5. LARGEST - This Distribution Centre houses the LARGEST fresh produce and packed goods of processing, packaging and distribution in Malaysia.

6. ENERGY EFFICIENT - You will be amazed at their energy efficient operations on rainwater harvesting, heat recovery technology, integrated and automated processes, temperature-controlled environments, improved handling and logistics processes that improves the overall quality and freshness of all the fresh produce and food brought in by GCH Retail to the country.
Rainwater Harvesting - Collecting rainwater from the roof areas to be re-used in the building services such as washing the dishes in the canteen and also rainwater recycled in the washrooms.
LED Lighting - Keeps the facility well lit and saves electricity simultaneously.
Heat-Recovery Technology - Recycle waste heat generated by the refrigeration plant to pre-heat water to be used in operations like rinsing vegetables.
Refrigeration System - Real time high efficiency technology to ensure temperature control with minimal energy inputs.
Digital infrastructure - Status of cold chain can be monitored remotely for optimum efficiency and product temperature control.
Doors - High speed doors to maintain temperature integrity.
Paperless - Basically, paperless operations with Radio Frequency technology.
GPS - Trucks fitted with GPS to monitor trucks' movements.
Processing - Integrated meat and seafood processing centre.

7. PEOPLE - With this Distribution Centre alone, it is able to create more than 200 jobs directly in the warehousing and food processing sectors at this facility. This includes also the management department of all sorts, such as the product experts, buyers, quality control professionals, distribution team and even indirect job opportunities through partnerships with local suppliers, logistics partners and vendors. This actively enhanced the economy of the surrounding areas almost immediately.

8. VENUE - Located in Kajang, which took 12 months to build and occupies 25,000 square metres of land. It's practically THREE (3) times the size of the current GCH operation in Balakong. Definitely the largest and most innovative fresh distribution centre dedicated to a single retailer in Malaysia! Kajang was chosen for it's strategic location between the field and the stores.

9. REAL TIME EFFORT - From the moment the food produce arrives the Distribution Centre until it reaches to all GCH Retail stores nationwide; With insights into the process that brings fresh produce from across the country daily, this centre is designed to ensure produce from over 200 vendors stored here are constantly maintained, while the digitally enabled infrastructure of the centre with it's temperature controlled facilities, ensures round the clock monitoring for optimum efficiency. The largest real time, daily supply chain operations of fresh produce in Malaysia means, GCH assume the responsibility when it comes to preserving and enhancing the quality of food.

10. FIGHT AGAINST FOOD WASTE - As the "Gateway For Freshness", it's more than just bringing fresh quality produces to consumers; It's also about ensuring as little food as possible is wasted, hence, GCH Retail has established processes to control the age, appearance and freshness of its in-store products. When products are kept beyond this period, they are then shared with The Lost Food Project to be re-distributed to those in need for free. It will then be distributed to charities home including underprivileged children, soup kitchens for the poor and homeless, as well as those with special needs. Another reason why I prefer to shop in Giant Malaysia, because they will also clear out any food produce that does not appear nice or may have 1 or 2 spoilt items (eg. sometimes a pack of tomato is cleared out for RM1 a pack where there's 1 or 2 spoilt ones in it, but the rest are still edible).

The launch of the fresh distribution centre (DC) is part of GCH Retail's on-going commitment which includes reviewing and renewing the way supermarket and hypermarket shopping experiences are brought into the nation and how it may support Malaysians nationwide. Incase you aren't aware yet, GCH Retail (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is a subsidiary of Dairy Farm International. You will probably know them through Giant hypermarkets and supermarkets chain; Cold Storage, Mercato and Jason's Food Hall premium grocery stores. GCH Retail was awarded as Retail Asia-Pacific's Top 500 Gold Winner as Malaysia's Number 1 Retailer!

This pineapple super syok! Sweet, delicious, fresh and cold!

The perception on frozen food is that it is not fresh. Most aunties, would tell me to buy from the fresh market because they claim it's fresher, however, they are unaware of it's quality and actual freshness because some could be actually frozen and defrosted (on repeat) until it's sold. Nevertheless, I beg to differ; And I am right, because GCH DC has 32 state of the art docks that handle all deliveries with over 50 trucks everyday, going in and out, delivering the freshest products to customers. And all products are quality checked and assured before being accepted and made ready for delivery to stores nationwide.

That being said, all local products will be harvested, received and sent to stores on the same day! It's a round-the-clock service and the DC facility houses an on-site generator that can last up to 8 hours in case of power outage, equipped with CCTV's, fire suppression system and ammonia sensors to ensure the well-being of their workers and customers at the facility. Am sure fresh markets won't have such preliminary checks to ensure the person handling your fresh food produce is well and fit for duty. After all, the last thing anybody wants is to have their fresh produce contaminated by any unwanted strains of bacteria. So I rather be safe than sorry.

Met my ex-colleague, Darren, dulu with Samsung together.
Now he is attached with Shopper360 - Malaysia's Shopper Marketing Experts.

All in all, this NEW and LARGEST Supermarket & Hypermarket Distribution Centre by GCH Retail (M) Sdn Bhd is the ultimate "Gateway For Freshness" for Malaysians!

Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissue For My Family

September 17, 2018 14
When I was a young girl, I've never been taught about the differences with tissues and how it can actually make a difference in our lives. 

Now, as a mother of 2 boys, cleanliness has always been on my priority list and I always want the best for my family. But not many ever talk about knowing how to get the right tissue paper for you and your family. Or what should you know about the different tissues before buying them?

You know, sometimes when I use a tissue and when I wipe too hard or too frequent especially when having flu or even diarrhea, a bad quality tissue can actually irritate your skin! This is why I always look for the best tissue quality for my family, because I believe that a soft tissue will be much gentler on your skin.

Did you know? Tissues are also used to hold ice creams! (My son wanted me to put this photo in)

But it made sense!
Imagine if a tissue is too thin, it can never hold an ice cream cone without leaking profusely or breaking apart! If the surface of the tissue is too rough, chances are you will see lots of traces of tissue residue on the last place it has been.

I have had bad experience of tissues that were so thinned out that it breaks easily! And some actually had lots of leftover tissue residues that gets me annoyed because it made more mess.

Then there were some occurrences where the tissue surface was so coarse that it irritates my skin and it's really uncomfortable.

However, thankfully after years of exploring, I manage to get the best quality tissue for my family's daily use, the Kleenex Ultra Soft cottony softness tissue.

I really love the CleanWeave* Technology that is visible which helps trap dirt and absorbs dirt better, it's texture is of cotton extract that provides that Cushiony Softness to the touch that is gentle and safe on my baby's skin even!

Most importantly, it is Charcoal Fresh which helps to absorbs odor, making you feel fresh and clean after using it. Keeps you smelling fresh too! The best is, no leftover traces of tissue residue left behind, it's not thin that breaks out easily neither is it too thick to get your toilet stuck 
(unless you go gila and use alot la....that's user problem ye lolx... Always happens on holiday ahahahhahaa) 

All in all, I am impressed with it's quality that you can see, feel and stay fresh and clean all day. My family just use whatever I buy for them anyways, so I rather get the best for them because it's for long term. Afterall, not many products can provide you "3 signs of Clean" that you would surely fall in love with!

Get On-The-Go with Anlene UHT Milk Malaysia!

September 14, 2018 0
Had an exhilarating experience with Anlene Malaysia before Merdeka! Why exhilarating? Because I was literally on-the-go! When I found out they had the Anlene Breakfast pack for RM1 onlyyyyy! Oh-mai-gosh! That is affordable k! Even Nasi Lemak RM1 also super RARE, almost non-existent!

And mind you, Anlene RM1 pack, packs with 50% more nutrients than a packet of Nasi Lemak and it keeps you going non-stop all day long! For me, juggling parenting, entrepreneurship, projects, freelance designing, copywriting, blogging and influencing is no easy task to beat but I enjoy doing what I do because it makes me happy and keeps me on the roll! I was literally on-the-go and needed more nutrients to keep me going non-stop!

I managed to pop by KL Sentral to get this RM1 breakfast pack on the way to another event! A good way to start your day! I noticed how the Anlene UHT milk pack is super compact, cute and convenient to carry around, it's not bulky at all! Yet, it carries all the most needed nutrients in a convenient pack as this!

I didn't get to grab some for my kids because I was rushing to another place. But I manage to get to taste and also grab some samples of the Vanilla Milk and Chocolatey flavours for my kids to try when they had their Roving Truck roadshow On-The-Go at Puchong Jaya. It's quite affordable too! For a pack of 8 Anlene UHT milk, it's only RM10 and free 1 yogurt! Definitely worth value for your money!

My kids enjoyed the milk and were asking for more. So I decided, since I've already been following the movements of Anlene UHT milk, I may as well jump on the bandwagon and head down to Bukit Bintang KL for the Jump event with local celebrity, Stacy Anam, and jump together!

And this was also after I gotten a new hairstyle hair colour look, because I decided if I'm going to be out and about so frequent, I must do something with my hair! It's due for a cut anyways so may as well color it with my favourite colour "red"! I've been wanting this for a long time!

I definitely gotten alot of attention at the crossroads infront of Lot 10, because we had to jump until the milk is filled up! I was like a huge red light jumping up and down (only to realize, I had to register on the device and jump with the phone!) Omg.... Means I have to jump aaaa-gaaaiinnn.... It was funny and took my breathe away for sure! Good exercise too!

But it was enjoyable because everyone cheered for you as you jumped, some will ask you to jump higher, some will say jump faster, and then there are some who will shout and cheer you on to keep jumping, don't give up! So with or without the phone on your hands, you'll just feel like jumping in on the fun and just literally jump for joy! I definitely had fun from the very first day right up till today!

And after having a taste of the Anlene UHT milk with 50% more nutrients, I can understand what the whole experience was like for me! Because with such a cute packet jam-packed with so much goodness, it makes us recuperate our energy quicker and keeps us going forward! And it is known that Anlene helps strengthen our bones too!

The new packaging makes it convenient to even pack it into your child's school bag for their mealtime/snacktime. It's perfect also with its new packing for the following :
- Picnics
- Eating out with the family/kids
- Travelling back hometown/holiday
- Exercising, running, walking, marathonin and all sports activities
- Snacking On-The-Go on the road or when you're stuck in traffic.
- For kindergartens
And so much more!

So if you'd like to get your hands on the Anlene UHT milk you can find out more on :

DK Impian, Property Investment Malaysia

September 09, 2018 12
How many times have you told someone or yourself that you will start looking into investing in a property as a side income, but still unable to find the right one or know how?

Well today, DK Impian hosted an Investment talk at DK Impian Sales Gallery Showroom in Bandar Pinggiran Subang. Charles Tan, founder of shared that "Property Investment Is All About Affordability, Flexibility & Location."

And to me, after visiting the showroom, I can relate and agree that DK Impian actually matches these key highlights! It is reasonable! The price per unit starts from RM320k with choices of a few sqft and layout size for your choosing. This development highlights their Flexi Dual-Key SOHO concept where 1 unit, consists of 2 studio units inside (imagine owning 1 unit but 2 studio home, with double of every furniture, include double bath, double living area, double kitchen, double balcony, double room). This gives owners the choice to invest and collect 2 rental from each SOHO unit.

This new 14 storey high-rise building in Damansara West will be commencing it's construction works this October 2018 and will be ready by 2021! DK Impian is part of developer Danny Koek Tiang Kung project where incase you are unaware, they have 3 projects already built-up and 2 more on the way, some of which you may be very familiar with : DK City at Bandar Sunway, DK Senza and D'Latour, coming soon will be D'Immersione in Dutamas and DK Impian, Shah Alam.

This is the only developer in Malaysia who has never taken any loan from Bank Negara to fund their projects. Everything is funded with their own finance! And not many developer companies can successful do that!

Asley Liew, Creative Director of A Plus Interior mentioned that "Interior design tips increases your home value". And this is true as well. If you can decorate, your unit is sure to be sold within seconds! A ready-to-move in unit is the most important thing most tenants/owners/investors are looking for these days.

At DK Impian, with 658 units, you have the choice to opt for a fully furnished unit that ranges from an additional RM40,000 up to RM45,000 etc (depending on the sqft size).

And based on the showroom units, paying this amount is definitely work it because you don't have to refurbish the whole place when it can be done in a jiffy by the developer.

You can still design your own interiors (furniture's, wall, flooring, lighting, kitchen, room, living, toilet etc) without obstructing the original floorplan/main structures and plan accordingly. Means don't la go and break down the walls etc, because every high-rise building has a strict foundation and guidelines to adhere to, in order to keep the building intact and in good condition.

At the moment Block A is almost sold out. Now they have just opened Block B for sale. Am bringing my husband over to have a look at the showroom again this week, we may even consider investing in it. Parking space is not included but they have 846 carpark space from Basement 2 up till Level 2 where it is available for a monthly rental of RM50. 1st year is managed by the developer, hence the rental of the carpark space is RM50 per vehicle monthly and the Maintenance fee with sinking fund is RM0.30 cents per sqft. The 2nd year onwards will be subject to the decision of the (JMB) Joint Management Body & the Residential Committee.

Before I forget to mention, they also have a "Rooftop sky hub" with a playground, BBQ area, sky view, lounge deck; There's also other facilities such as the gym and the pool. On average each floor houses about 28 SOHO units where different levels may consists of either the carpark or other facilities and up to 5 shoplot units (not for sale); with a total of 6 lifts access in DK Impian.

This will surely to be the next talk of the town at Damansara West! So if you are interested then head over to grab their current promotion! 10% discount when you place booking (For Bumiputera, you get to enjoy an additional 7% discount), Zero Downpayment, you only pay RM1,000 deposit to secure your booking now and if your loan is rejected, you get a full refund.

So while my husband is busy working out the details with the sales girl, I am busy checking out the showroom with its already fitted interiors that you can own!

Find out more at :
DK Impian

Don't wait until it's too late and sold out! Because this will definitely go up in value with upcoming development in the surrounding area (eg. DASH Highway less than 1 min away-ready in year 2020, near HELP University, nearby neighborhood malls, near KTM Subang Skypark, near Subang Airport and more!). It'll be the next hotspot to beat in Asia!

Berrylicious Recipes by Ribena Malaysia

September 08, 2018 12
Wholesome berrylicious goodies can be found jam-packed in a bottle of Ribena Blackcurrant goodness for the whole family! Over the years, you've probably have heard, seen or even tasted Ribena yourself, however, did you know that there's more to it than just a thirst quenching beverage?

For 63 years it was introduced to Malaysians, that is like double my age! I wasn't even born yet! So many years and Ribena is like the best blackcurrant juice that many, fell head over heels with, (I know I did!). But most parents, including mine are sometimes against it because they say it's too sweet (because I love to have mine thick and sweet!). But I mean, come on, who can resist such yummy flavours?

Today I was introduced to another whole new level of Ribena at the Ribena Berrylicious Workshop in Handcrafted Creative Bites Studio at Setia City Mall. Together with guest host of the day, Dr. Jezamine Lim who led the event; We had the opportunity to experience first-hand, on how to take your Ribena Blackcurrant drink up a notch, with a few recipes that is just too cool not to share with you all today!

We started off with making the cheese tart, the whole workshop was guided by the studio's very own food director herself, Wong May Chew, who also created the recipes demonstrated. I've always love baking in a slow paced environment and in a comfy zone in my own kitchen, also because I am used to my own baking tools and took time to know the ingredients. But today I was a little clumsy and off-beat. Also because it is my first time making a cheese tart.

The cheese tart steps is quite simple actually once you get the hang of it. Mix the gelatin with water and set aside, heat up the milk, add blue pea flowers and mix till it has turned slightly bluish. And... we just follow the recipe. Basically the base of the cheese tart are the Ribena jellies.

Once placed in the fridge to set. We proceeded to make a salad dressing with Ribena juice!

Then it was the Vietnamese roll with Ribena jellies. This is quite unique. With the right portion of ingredients, it can create a unique flavour of mint from the mint leaves, blandness from the bee hoon and blackcurrant sweetness from the Ribena jelly. You don't even need sauce anymore. That's how unique it can be.

After that we got to enjoy the food readily prepared using the Ribena Blackcurrant syrup or gummy sweets.

There was also a mini competition for the Most Creative Cheese Tart decorations. I made a heart shape out of whatever ingredients I managed to grab. And the winning prize was the Ribena mini fridge!

Congrats to Lily Shah (The Buxom Babe/Parenthood Magazine) who won the competition!

It was a fun time spent and the recipes will be really useful for me as I can make it for my kids using Ribena.
