This is what Wikipedia mention about Cadbury.

Cadbury is a British multinational confectionery company owned by Mondelēz International. It is the second largest confectionery brand in the world after Wrigley’s. Cadbury is headquartered in Uxbridge, London, and operates in more than fifty countries worldwide.

Cadbury is best known for its confectionery products including the Dairy Milk chocolate, the Creme Egg, and the Roses selection box.

Cadbury was established in Birmingham in 1824, by John Cadbury who sold tea, coffee and drinking chocolate. Cadbury developed the business with his brother Benjamin, followed by his sons Richard and George. George developed the Bournville estate, a model village designed to give the company’s workers improved living conditions. Dairy Milk chocolate, introduced in 1905, used a higher proportion of milk within the recipe compared with rival products. By 1914, the chocolate was the company’s best-selling product.

Cadbury merged with J. S. Fry & Sons in 1919, and Schweppes in 1969. Cadbury was a constant constituent of the FTSE 100 from the index’s 1984 inception until the company was bought by Kraft Foods in 2010.

Cadbudy’s social media release on 24 May 2014 mentions:

We have been made aware of certain information being distributed on social media with regards to our Cadbury Dairy Milk products. 

We would like to reassure our consumers that we employ stringent quality procedures to ensure that our products are of the highest standard of safety and quality.

Care is taken with all the ingredients and production processes.

All our products manufactured in Malaysia are halal-certified by JAKIM.

We follow rigorous processes in making our chocolate to maintain our certification.

Another follow up from the above release mentions

We at Cadbury would like to respond to the report dispersed by Ministry of Health, Malaysia, earlier today. 

We were informed that Cadbury Dairy Milk Hazelnut (with batch number 200813M01H I2 that expires on Nov 13, 2014) and Cadbury Dairy Milk Roast Almond (with batch number 221013N01R I1 that expires on Jan 15, 2015) analyzed by Ministry of Health tested positive for traces of porcine DNA. We have taken immediate action by recalling the products from the above two batches.

No other Cadbury chocolates are affected by this test.

We are undertaking a full review of the supply chain to ensure all quality standards continue to be met. We would like to reassure our consumers that all Cadbury chocolates manufactured in Malaysia are halal-certified by JAKIM, which includes the locations and raw materials used in the production of these products. We employ stringent quality procedures to ensure that our products are of the highest standard of safety and quality. 

Thank you for your continued support of Cadbury.

Jangan Tiup Minuman Panas Anda

Saya ingin berkongsi info ini untuk kebaikan semua pembaca. Ia bukanlah tulisan saya tetapi apa yang saya baca dalam Facebook yang dipost dalam page Mukjizat Sholat Dan Doa .

Dari Ibnu Abbas radhiyallahu ‘anhuma,

أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ نَهَى أَنْ يُتَنَفَّسَ فِي الإِنَاءِ أَوْ يُنْفَخَ فِيهِ
Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam melarang bernafas di dalam gelas atau meniup isi gelas. (HR. Ahmad 1907, Turmudzi 1888, dan dishahihkan Syuaib Al-Arnauth).

Inilah jawabannya

Nabi melarang sahabatnya meniup air panas yang akan diminum. Beliau tidak menerangkan tetapi melarang keras hal tersebut. Ternyata dalam penelitian sains, air panas (H2O) yang bertemu dengan karbondioksida (CO2) yang dihembuskan olehmulut, maka akan menghasilkan persenyawaan H2CO3 (asam karbonat). Dan jika asam karbonat itu masuk dalam tubuh manusia,maka dapat menyebabkan penyakit jantung.

Selepas membaca posting tersebut, saya juga membuat carian di internet berkaitan perkara tersebut. Saya copy maklumat berkenaan untuk tatapan kita bersama.

Maklumat di bawah saya perolehi dari The Way fo Living

Blow hot food to make it cold actually is the bad habit and should be avoided but some of us do not realize it & even practice it every day for himself and the kids but also hand down the wrong knowledge to the little kids to follow.
Hot food and drinks emits water vapor which is H2O. When we blow it, we give our excretions gas containing carbon dioxide which is C02. When water vapor mixed with carbon dioxide gas it will react and produce carbonic acid which is acidic.
H2O + CO2 -> H2CO3
In our blood was found H2CO3 useful to organize pH in blood. Blood is Buffer (solution to maintain pH) to maintain the weak acid condition in H2CO3 in form HCO3 to ensure the blood has a pH of between 7:35 to 7:45 with the following reaction:
CO2 + H20 <= H2CO3 => HCO3- + H+
Body using pH buffer in the blood as a protector from the changes that occur suddenly in blood pH. When there is a change, it may cause blood pH balance can not be maintained in the normal state whether it is more acidic or alkaline and this would interfere with the system.
What happens after we eat or drink that food is, it will increase the acidity of blood and cause a condition where the blood will become more acidic (pH decreased).
Along with the decrease in blood pH, breathing becomes more rapid as the body attempts to stabilize blood acidity in normal phase by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide.
The kidneys are also trying to overcome the problem by issuing more acid through urine.But both mechanisms would be useless if the body continues to produce too much acid.
In long-term it will cause asthma, drowsiness, nausea and thinking problems due to the body can not function properly. Until it can cause low blood pressure, stroke, and even can cause coma and death.
Apart from that, the human exhaled air content bacteria that can cause human. Therefore, try to avoid blow hot food. So, the best way is wait until it cold because eating hot food were not recommended.

Dyana The Crowd Puller

At first everyone’s attention were focused to Bukit Jelutong by-election after its MP, Karpal Singh passed away in a road accident. Everything moves at a normal pace as any by-election but the mood was a bit dampen because BN decided not to contest the DAP fort. The late Karpal Singh held the Bukit Gelugor seat since 2004 until his demise on April 17 2014.

On nomination day five prospective MP submitted their nomination papers but only four was accepted. Another candidate did not have his deposit to contest. Without BN candidate, nomination process was very peaceful.

All of a sudden a pretty young lady pulled everybodys attention to Telok Intan for another by-election. Most political fans quite forget that Bukit Jelutong polling day is not over yet. The campaign had been going on.

A new young lawyer became a crowd puller and made BN press the panic button. Their paid cyber troopers started their usual defamation antics by scouring the net searching for photos that can smear Dyana Sofia’s image so voters shy away from voting her. They found a Filipino look-a-like of Pauleen Luna.

Dyana Sofia

Smear tactic campaign has been part and parcel of BN’s Trademark. Not satisfied, the cybertroopers came up with another photoshopped photo of Dyana cuddling a dog. The original photo was Dyana cuddling a cat.

On another note, Bukit Gelugor candidate from DAP too, is not spared. Now he is accused as being gay since he is a bachelor even though he is in his late 30s. What a dirty politic BN is using when they do not have any clear matured issues that can help voters choose their representative. Luckily the voters has brain compared to the cybertroopers.

Mengapa Saya Tidak Yakin Dengan Testomonial?

Setiap kali anda melihat sesuatu produk dipromosi dalam talian, pasti akan diikuti dengan beberapa testimonial. Biasanya testimonial ini dalam bentuk screen capture. Testimonial ini salah satu aspek penting dalam pemasaran tetapi sejauh manakah testomonial itu benar adalah dipertikaikan. 

Saya sebagai pengguna telah membeli satu produk beberapa ketika dahulu. Jika berdasarkan testimonial produk itu adalah sesuatu yang ajaib dan boleh memberi kesan di luar jangkaan. Hanya beberapa hari sahaja dah nampak buktinya. Namun apabila mencuba untuk satu bulan, tidak ada apa-apa kesan sedikit pun. Jadi saya pun tidak meneruskan untuk bulan kedua dan ketiga. Namun kepada mereka yang terdesak pasti akan terus membeli kesan testomonial. 

Mengapa saya tidak yakin dengan testimonial ialah kerana ia boleh dibuat-buat. Ajak saja beberapa rakan untuk cakap keberkesanan produk berkenaan. Berutus-utus dalam Whatsapps, Instagram atau lain-lain alikasi komunikasi. Kemudian buat print screen dan upload ke Facebook misalnya dan bakal pengguna yang terdesak akan membeli. Satu lagi sebab saya kurang yakin dengan ketulenan testimonial ialah dakwaan yang melampau-lampau tentang keberkesanan produk berkenaan. 

Sebelum membeli sesuatu produk yang saya perlukan, saya biasanya cari dari sumber-sumber lain seperti posting blog atau pengeluar produk berkenaan kerana ia lebih meyakinkan berbanding testimoni dari screen capture yang bagi saya deceiving. Testimoni screen capture menunjukkan yang penjual produk itu terdesak hendak menjual produknya, Itu pandangan saya.
