SPAN offers RM200 Voucher to buy water-efficient washing machines in the JIMAT AIR 1.0 CAMPAIGN



Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Air Negara (SPAN) is teaming up with Shopee to encourage Malaysians to use water-efficient products through the Jimat Air 1.0 campaign, from now to 31 December 2021.

Malaysian households will be provided with a RM200 voucher when buying the selected water-efficient washing machines approved by SPAN through the e-commerce platform. There are more than 200 types of washing machines carrying the “Jimat 1.0” tag for ease of identification, to be featured in this campaign via a microsite.

The Jimat Air 1.0 microsite can be found in the Buy Malaysia in-app portal on the Shopee app homepage. Users can also reach the microsite by typing “Jimat Air” or “SPAN on Shopee” at the search bar.

Dato' Haji Ahmad Faizal bin Abdul Rahman, SPAN Chief Executive Officer said “Due to the increase of economic activities and population as well as urbanization, clean water has already become a scarce commodity in the country, therefore, it is important to educate the mindsets of Malaysians towards water conservation. I am hoping that each Malaysian can gradually reduce the amount of water that they consume daily through the awareness of programs such as the Jimat Air 1.0 campaign. Our ultimate goal is to reduce the country’s water consumption from the current 241 litre per capita per day, to 160 litre per capita per day by 2030.”

Kenneth Soh, Shopee Senior Manager (Marketing) said “Water plays an important role in our daily lives. Everyone has their responsibility in ensuring sufficient resources for years to come. Besides environmental conservation, consumers will not only obtain the savings from the vouchers, but they will eventually be benefitting from the reduction of their water bills. We thank SPAN for allowing us to be a part of this campaign which has a lasting impact not just on the lives of people but also the environment.”

For greater savings and a more rewarding experience, Malaysians can also look for deals during the e-commerce platform’s 10.10 Brands Festival which will take place from 20 September till 10 October 2021. The 10.10 Brands Festival will be offering Free Shipping Vouchers with a minimum spend of RM10 and 50% off Big Brand Discounts, along with a chance to Tap and Win a Toyota Vios. The lucky winner will be announced on 13 October 2021.

Recipe: Ipoh Kai See Hor Fun 鸡丝河粉

One of the must-eat dishes when you visit Ipoh is kai see hor fun 鸡丝河粉 (translated to shredded chicken flat rice noodle soup). Since we are still unable to travel to Ipoh, I made it at home for the family to enjoy.

Ipoh Kai See Hor Fun

I will usually reserve all my peeled prawn shells and heads to make the flavorful prawn stock required for this dish. Simply saute the prawn shells/heads for a few minutes, then simmer over low heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until it is packed full of flavour and a beautiful orange hue like in the picture!

Other ingredients found in Ipoh kai see hor fun include kai see (shredded chicken), prawns, chives and hor fun (flat rice noodles). Commonly, people would also order a plate of blanched Ipoh beansprouts to go with the noodles. You can actually get Ipoh hor fun (koay teow soup) noodles and beansprouts from Jaya Grocer website. The kids love this a lot, one of their Top 10 noodle dishes at home.

3. Cook prawns in prawn stock for 3-5 minutes, depending on size. Remove and set aside.

How to Throw a Boba Themed Birthday Party (Boba Cake Recipe Included!)

How time flies! I am now a mom to a teenager. Last week, we threw a Boba themed birthday party for my daughter to celebrate. Hubby went into full craft mode again and made boba-related decorations while I was in charge of the boba birthday cake. On the day, we also decided to set it up outdoors à la garden party setting.

Boba themed birthday party

Here are some photos from the party to inspire those who wish to throw a similar boba themed birthday party for their boba loving family or friends. Scroll down for Boba Cake recipe too!

♥ Giant Boba Cup (made from recycled cardboard, marker pens, manila card)
♥ Boba Piñata (recycled cardboard box, brown paper, marker pen)
♥ Boba Birthday Cake 
♥ Garden ParTEA set-up (checkered tablecloth/mat, basket, flowers, unicorn balloon, tropical plants)

***
This is a simple, naked Boba Cake with stabilized whipping cream and store-bought Boba pearls. Please stabilize your cream if you are planning to leave it at room temperature / outdoors for more than 15 minutes (as Malaysia's humid weather makes regular whipped cream melt very quickly).

Boba birthday cake


Boba Cake
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 30-45 minutes
Cooking time: 20-25minutes
Makes 1 cake

Ingredients
165g salted butter
165g caster sugar
3 eggs
165g self raising flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1 1/2 tsp milk

For the whipped cream
120ml whipping cream
1 1/2 tbsp icing sugar
1/2 tsp gelatin
1 tbsp water

For decorating
Boba pearls (recipe here), or buy from the nearest boba shop, drained


1. Preheat oven to 190C (no fan).

2. Grease three 4-inch cake tins and line the base with greaseproof paper.

3. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until you get a pale, fluffy mixture . This will take about 4-5 minutes. Add the egg one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract.

4. Sift the flour and baking powder, then fold into the mixture. Repeat until all the flour is incorporated. The mixture should fall off a spoon easily, add some milk if necessary.

5. Divide the mixture between the three tins, then place in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Peel off the base papers.

7. Place mixing bowl and whisk in fridge for 10 minutes before you begin to make the stabilized whipped cream. Meanwhile, soak the gelatin with water in a bowl for 2 minutes, then mix well until dissolved. You can place it over a hot water bath to help dissolve it.

8.Pour whipping cream into mixing bowl and whisk over high speed for 20 seconds. Add icing sugar and whisk until soft peaks. Take 1 spoonful of cream and add to gelatin and mix well. Add gelatin mixture to the rest of the cream and whisk until stiff peaks. Chill in fridge until required.

9. Stack the cakes on top of each other. Carefully pierce a straw through the cakes (this will help hold the cakes together too). Dollop the stabilized cream onto the top of the cake, and carefully arrange the boba pearls on top. You can also add more pearls at the base of the cake.
