Goodday KidSTART 2.0, Malaysia’s Biggest Kidpreneur Programme

July 11, 2024 0

 I recently had the privilege of attending the grand finale of Malaysia’s largest Kidpreneur Programme, Goodday KidSTART 2.0, and I must say, it was an incredibly inspiring experience. Held on June 30th, 2024, the event was a beautiful testament to the creativity and potential of our young minds. The atmosphere was electric with excitement as children from across the nation gathered to showcase their innovative business ideas. The highlight of the day was watching 9-year-old Lee Yumi take the top honor with her ‘OnBoard: School Bus System’ idea, earning her RM20,000 to bring her vision to life. Her determination to solve real-life problems was truly commendable.

The competition was fierce, with over 4,000 submissions from 141 schools nationwide. SJK (C) Puay Chai was particularly impressive, winning the School With Highest Participants award thanks to their 478 entries and three students shortlisted in the Top 20. I was deeply moved by the presentations of 12-year-old Muhammad Basyeer Bin Mohamed Ackiel Mohamed, who won second place with ‘The Academy of Future: Peer to Peer Learning Coding & Robotics’, and 9-year-old Lim Zhi Fung, who secured third place with his ‘MindACT: ACTor Program’ idea. The room was filled with pride and joy as these young entrepreneurs received their well-deserved accolades.

Throughout the day, I had the pleasure of witnessing the immense talent and passion of our youth. Awards for Most Innovative Idea, Most Sustainable Idea, and Best Presenter were handed out to equally deserving participants. The Rising Star award went to 9-year-old Elsa Khaw Wen Qing, who left everyone in awe with her presentation. The event’s success was a testament to the collaborative efforts of Goodday Milk, the Ministry of Education, Alliance Bank, and all the partners involved. Their support and dedication to nurturing the next generation of kidpreneurs were evident in every aspect of the program.

Listening to the heartfelt words of Amy Gan, VP of Etika's Marketing, and Dr. Aaron Sum, Alliance Bank’s Group Chief Strategy, Marketing, & Business Development Officer, further reinforced the importance of such initiatives. Their commitment to fostering financial literacy and entrepreneurial skills among our children is paving the way for a brighter future. I felt a deep sense of gratitude and pride as I watched these young minds shine.

 As I left the event, I couldn’t help but feel hopeful for the future. The creativity, intelligence, and determination displayed by these young entrepreneurs were truly inspiring. It reminded me of the importance of supporting and nurturing our children’s dreams and aspirations. Goodday Milk’s commitment to providing goodness beyond nutrition by enhancing the well-being of our community and promoting financial soundness for the next generation is something we should all applaud and support. Let’s continue to encourage and empower our young entrepreneurs, as they are the future of our nation.

Goodday with Wonda, Keluang Man and Astro Shaw at Kidzania

April 01, 2024 0

​Another day to record for my memories. A day my kids enjoyed their time at Kidzania. Ever since the pandemic it has been awhile since they’ve been to Kidzania and so much has changed.

One of the activities they attempted near the entrance was the Goodday Charge where they had to workout to get healthy. This concept itself played a huge role for my kids as my kids are also on their losing weight journey as I don’t want them to be obese as they get older. Hence this activity trained them to work their hardest to ride the bicycle that helps charge up the blender to blend their healthy smoothie and be rewarded with the Goodday smoothie after the workout! It basiclaly replicates the act of an adult who goes to the gym to sweat it out and reward themselves with a healthy treat afterwards to refuel their energy.

Then they experienced the wall climbing activity where it was in cooperation with Wonda Coffee, Astro Shaw and the local Malaysian hero cartoon character Keluang Man! From this activity my kids get to experience the adventure of breaking through their fear of heights. Although they didn’t reach for the top but they did their best and didn’t give up. This itself taught them many life values in return. From not giving up too soon, doing their very best, facing their fears and finding their way to make it was in itself a victory! 

As a parent I was so proud of them, as many will probably just give up without trying but they know that if you want something, you have to do your best and keep going even when it is uncomfortable. My eldest is afraid of heights but he made it halfway to the top, my second boy was also afraid but he did his best to find a way despite the obstacles infront of him, he didn’t give ip and kept trying even though he didn't make it halfway but I was able to witness him trying his best. 

There were many other new activities on board like the FoodPanda grocery shopping and delivery, the Royal Canin Veterinary, the Famous Amos outlet and they brought cookies back, also the TV news reporter that I was equally proud of them because they were able to read the teleprompter on live TV. Although it was funny but they never complained or gave up.

At the end, they wanted to spend on toys but Kidzania is hood because it teaches them the value of it. Despite doing several jobs and making Kidzos they were still unable to get the toys they want. It indirectly teaches them the value of hard earned income from their effort and it is not an overnight success. 

They had lots of fun and learned the value of hardwork effort and making money. But they had fun at the same time, I get to teach them the value of life to prepare them for the real world.

A Perfect Family Retreat: Unveiling the Magic of Royale Chulan Seremban

February 04, 2024 0

Embarking on a family staycation at Royale Chulan Hotel in Seremban turned out to be a delightful escape, with lots of moments of joy and relaxation into our busy lives. Allow me to share the enchanting experience that left my heart brimming with warmth and contentment.

The mere thought of a break from the hustle and bustle of city life was enticing, and our stay at Royale Chulan Hotel proved to be the perfect remedy. Nestled away, the serenity of Seremban provided an ideal backdrop for quality family time.

Our visit coincided with the Chinese New Year promotion, adding an extra layer of excitement to our stay. It felt like a well-deserved treat, setting the stage for a family getaway filled with surprises.


1st to 28th February 2024, In addition, an attractive room rates at RM240.00 nett per night in Deluxe Room category with breakfast for two persons will be available throughout month of February 2024. To enjoy this, guests can book direct by sending message via whatsapps at 016 920 9934 or send email at

Checking into the hotel, we were greeted with a warm and cosy room that immediately felt like home. The very night day, I truly enjoyed my à la carte dinner date with my loved ones at the hotel cafe. It was truly an array of gastronomic wonders, with each dish meticulously prepared and bursting with flavors that lingered on the palate.

After a good meal, the next day we were looking forward to spending time in the hotel together as a family. The following day commenced with a breakfast spread that left us spoiled for choice. Watching our kids indulge in their favorite dishes was a heartening sight. I must say, the breakfast buffet was the best starter that kickstarted our fun-filled family moments together. 

As you can see, my kids had the best fun they had on this quick staycation over the weekend. Despite being an hour away from home, sometimes a break like this is needed to take your mind of things back in the hustling bustling city. Because time flies, before you know it, it is already 2024 and Chinese New Year is just around the corner! And because time flies, my kids enjoyed themselves to the fullest at the swimming pool! The following day commenced with a breakfast spread that left us spoiled for choice. Watching our kids indulge in their favorite dishes was a heartening sight. 

The pool provided a perfect playground for the kids. They loved the bubble bobbling in the jacuzzi pool, they had many splashing fun moments. And these moments are priceless and not every hotel has such facilities available. We were glad that we made the choice to come here to this hotel for our weekend getaway. After having so much fun, it was natural to be super hungry after that. But we were glad because the lunch & even their dinner buffet spread was truly a feast! There was alot of variety to pick from and my compliments to the chef here. Everything was made to perfection. It was just properly well cooked, well seasoned and taste wonderful! Even my husband who is not a foodie by nature, complimented the food variety at the Asiatique cafe here inside Royale Chulan Seremban hotel.

While the food was truly worthy-mention, the rooms itself offered a serene haven for relaxation. My kids were well prepared for their trip. They brought their favourite gadgets, toys and unwind in the room. I should've brought a board game along, it would be so much fun together!

As the morning sun painted the sky, my husband discovered a nearby running route at the park. His breathtaking run amidst perfect weather set a positive tone for the day. The beautiful view and clear blue sky nearby the hotel vicinity is truly breathtaking in the early morning.

On our last day, breakfast became a cherished family bonding moment, weaving laughter and shared stories. Lots of photo taking moments and lots of food to fill into our tummy.

After bidding farewell to Royale Chulan, we took the opportunity to explore the nearby gems before heading home. From charming stops to affordable shopping places, Seremban unfolded as a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Seremban Gateway was actually around the corner turning in heading to Royale Chulan hotel. It was like a lifestyle mall with restaurants, cafe and shops that you can spend a day there. There was also Terminal 1 Shopping Centre, this one very legendary, I used to come here last time in my employment days to visit the mobile phone dealers there and inside there are lots of shops to splurge on. The one that caught my attention nearby is the Setia shop next to Mr D.I.Y. Where everything is at RM2.40. Talk about shopping spree weeeee~!!

But my kids since the day we arrived, they've been asking to drop a visit at A&W they saw the logo outside as we were heading to Royale Chulan hotel. So we decided on our way back, we will have our lunch at A&W that is just 5 minutes below the hotel. 

Against a backdrop of clear skies and overlooking a serene lake, we had a family feast that added the perfect finishing touch to our getaway. For those seeking a blend of tranquility and luxury, I truly encourage you to explore the current Chinese New Year promotion for a staycation at Royale Chulan Seremban. Discover the magic that awaits, and create your own tapestry of beautiful family memories.

As we journeyed home, the unanimous sentiment echoed among us; We will undoubtedly return to Royale Chulan Seremban for another chapter of family joy and unforgettable moments. Here's to the magic of family staycations and the cherished memories they create.
