Hello, holiday season! One of our favourite times of the year, filled with treating our loved ones and indulging in festivities. December is also the best time to create healthy habits and refine our routines – it’s our chance to rest, refocus and recharge for the new year.
Community service project group, Heart To Heart MY, would like to help you with your self-care routine, especially during these trying times. They’ve organised a virtual self-care charity talk to provide participants with tips and advice from content creator, Bay Doucet, Velvet Vanity Cosmetics founder, Adlina Nadirah, and their very own self-care booklet.
For only RM30, which will be fully donated to the Selangor’s People Voice, you’ll be able to have a personalised experience by sharing your interests and hobbies. You’ll learn how to create or redesign a self-care routine that you’ll look forward to doing every single day! If you’re an early bird, you’ll also receive a printed self-care guide, planner and sticker set to kickstart the new year.
Heart To Heart MY
Heart To Heart MY is a community service project consisting of a group of students who aim to help those in need. By raising funds through different fundraising activities, all proceeds are donated to the Selangor People’s Voice – helping B40 and M40 families.
This weekend, pop over to Aitch Coffee Roasters in Mutiara Damansara for the very first edition of Ngegeh & Co – a new platform created to support female entrepreneurs through monthly curated events. Featuring Instagram’s fave homemade food and treats from founders Chiq Supply (Chiq Ruslan), Baked With Butter (Naddy Rahman) and Ephrodite (Ellysha Elkany), the pop-up spreads across both days from 12pm to 6pm.
With community support being more important than ever, Ngegeh & Co is building a network of women during this tough time to help their businesses survive and grow. The other vendors include female-owned startups Klean Supply, who sell naturally-fragranced hand sanitisers, and Nood Cosmetics, a vegan makeup brand.
But what does “ngegeh” mean? The Sarawakian term is commonly used to describe women as attention-seeking – a negative stereotype that continues to accuse and even dismiss females for “seeking attention”. Co-founder, Chiq Ruslan, stands up against this blatant sexism, sharing, “We aim to reclaim the world ‘ngegeh’ and change the narrative. We believe all women, including the ‘ngegeh’ ones, can build a name, business and even an empire for herself!”
Show these female entrepreneurs (and your tummy) some love at the sustainable event. If you bring your own tupperwares, bottles and bags – you’ll receive a RM2 discount from all vendors for helping to reduce waste and protect the environment.
