Young mothers born between 1978 and 1994 are known as Millennial moms and are considered as the most diverse, connected, educated and creative moms today. But most importantly, they are the group of consumers that are highly sought after by brands and advertisers. Millennial moms are known to be highly influential while being raised in the technological era; they are also known to be smart and technologically savvy.

However, behind the glamorous title of millennial mom worn by this young generation of mothers, the struggle is as real and can some times be daunting.

Given that Mother’s day is just around the corner, let us shed some light on some of the struggles and share some wisdoms and #MummyStories from our influential mommy bloggers!

  1. Clash of generations

 Having been raise in an era with infinite resources for information and exposures, millennial moms often find themselves stuck between values and practices held strongly and highly by their parents and the overload of information they have access to.

Most of our mommy bloggers share the same take on this which is; while it is important to seek a balance between both worlds, the priority always lies in what is best for the children.

  1. Social pressure

Living in an era where everything is a constant live update, millennial moms live in an illusion of having to be the perfect mom. Their parenting skills are constantly being judged be it offline or online. This daunting pressure sometimes throws millennial moms into self-doubt, just as how Careen and Grace shares their stories on a similar spectrum, it is apparent that the pressure is no joke.

Then again, it’s not always all doom and gloom as Kimberly takes such pressures as inspiration to drive herself to be better and her assurance that she has given her best comes from non other than her son’s Liam’s healthy and happy growth.

  1. Choices of education

As information becomes more and more borderless, choices of educations for children of millennial moms are no longer restricted to only conventional ways. Free schooling, home schooling and un-schooling slowly catches up. Millennial moms often find themselves in a cross road of choices, not knowing what to choose.

Audrey or better known to her readers as Fourfeetnine shares her struggles on her blog, discussing about the dilemma she faces where most Malaysian moms could relate.

  1. Disciplinary measures

 Many millennial moms find that disciplining their children a great struggle, as traditional methods like caning and public shaming find themselves no longer relevant and effective with the new generation.

While Merryn shared her thoughts on this issue in her blog, she also admits that it takes enormous amount of patience and she often finds reverse psychology works the charm when disciplining her boys.

Though millennial moms are no strangers to being disciplined by threats and canings, Kimberly finds it a great struggle to avoid using fear as an element in disciplining her son, as it is an easier way out compared to reasoning.

Do you find these struggles relevant as you wade through the every day battle of being a mom; millennial or not?

Or if you have yet to join in the mommy clan, maybe you’d want to consider listing a handful of things you might want to do before becoming a mom like what Kimberly shared on her blog “6 things I wish I had done more before becoming a mummy!

We would like to use this opportunity to wish every mom, especially all our mommy bloggers, Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy 31st December Nuffnangers! It’s the last day of 2015, how is everybody? Did you manage to accomplish the goals you set the beginning of 2015?  Leave us a comment below and let us know what have you accomplish this year. :)

Thank you once again for sticking with us throughout the year! So many things have happened. Let’s do a quick run through of what went down in 2015. :)

Bloggerati Launch cum Nuffnang’s 8th Birthday Bash

Nuffnang turned 8 this year! We celebrated this milestone by organizing a glitz and glamour ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ themed party. That day, we also introduced BLOGGERATI by Nuffnang, our new talent program.



It was definitely an unforgettable morning! Want to know more, read it all here.

Transcending the online space

With the launch of BLOGGERATI by Nuffnang, we wanted to bring talent promotion and branding to a whole new level. One of the ways we did it was to engage a PR agency to promote our talents offline. Here are a few features that we managed to secure:


Jessica Chaw featured on Women Health Magazine


Tziaaa featured on Marie Claire, Nuyou and Female Magazine


Yen Simpson featured on New Straits Time


KampungBoyCityGal featured on New Straits Time


Runway 2.0 APAC

Nuffnang was also the online partner for this year’s Runway 2.0 APAC; the first ever fashion and technology event.#NuffnangXRunwayTwoPointZero

The founder of Zalora and ZaoZao were present to speak about their experiences in the fashion world, it was definitely an eye opener for our fashion bloggers :)


Netccentric goes IPO

6th July 2015, a date to remember for Netccentric and its founders, Timothy Tiah and Cheo Ming Shen. Netccentric was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, ASX!


It wasn’t an easy journey but the Netccentric team’s hard work and determination paid off.

If you have not already followed our bosses on Dayre, do check them out at:

Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week


The most anticipated Fashion Festival  in Kuala Lumpur, Churp Churp worked with KL Fashion Week to be their online partner. Our own alphas Kittieyiyi and RNadia ran their shows there too and we couldn’t be prouder!


Many of our alphas and Nuffnang friends also joined us there!
Check it out here.

The Electric Run 2015

Malaysia’s first ever Night run with fluorescent light! Our Bloggerati and community had the chance to participate in the fun 5KM run dressed in the most creative way possible. The run is made easy with loud music blasting in the background! Keep a look out for the next Electric Run organized by Tune Protect.

Interested to look at more pictures from the run, check it out here.


Mamee Cool Tea Spicy Challenge

The constant hissing, the amount of sweats shed and the bucket of tears poured over a plate of level 10 spicy chicken. Our community tummy were filled by Mamee Cool Tea that day to rid the spicy feeling lingering on your taste bud, nevertheless it was still a insanely fun night seeing tears shed due to chicken wings. *evil grin*


Check out the funny pictures here.

Hall of Fame

Nom Nom Hall of Fame is our annual client appreciation night! This year, Guinness Anchor Berhad generously hosted us at the GAB Tavern, it was a free flow kind of night.

There were flash mob done by the Nuffies, prizes given away and of course the freestyle dancing on the dance floor to end the night.


And to sum up the year, Netccentric also organized a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity to help out children at Siddharthan Care Centre. The Nuffies contributed in buying books, stationary and other daily needs.


Here are some of the moments captured on camera. :)

Happy New Year Nuffnangers! We at Nuffnang, wish you the very best in everything that you do.

Of course, don’t forget to head over to Churp Churp’s blog for a video recap of what happened throughout 2015!

It’s been a year since the last year end party organized by Nom Nom Media and we follow this tradition by heart! Never have we missed out on a party where we involved clients, Bloggeratis, Social Media Influencers and yours truly, the Nuffnang and Churp Churp team :) Ask no further, here is what went down during #Nom2HallofFame

Firstly, Nuffnang and Churp Churp would love to thank The Tavern at G.A.B for being the venue sponsor that kindly welcomed us with open arms and free flow of drinks which we felt made the night even better than what we planned it to be.



Before we begin the stories, we would want to thank all the Nuffies for helping out throughout the night but the biggest appreciation has to go to the awesome team that comprises of Rachel Tan, YY, Rowena and Shelly for kickstarting this whole event!

Let’s not delay the great night stories from all you readers anymore, let’s go!

Welcoming everyone who attended was the main entrance of The Tavern with a little touch of FAME.


Guests were greeted by our very own beautiful ladies at the registration counter, we’re pretty sure our guest couldn’t wait to get a photo with them :P


Talking about beautiful ladies, we definitely met some guests who shone brighter than the stars in the night sky! After all, our them of the night was to dress up like the star you really are :D


Abang Budiey with Freezeforshort!

Even though we did not want to go home that night but it had to come to an end because even the greatest of nights had to come to an end. Before the guest left we had a little special gift courtesy from the ladies at Mermaid Dreams, Bwincessnana and Michiekins! Eveyone went home with vouchers worth RM20 each to be spent at Mermaid Dreams :)

HOF 27

We hope everyone enjoyed their UBER credits too as they were kind enough to give most of us a lift back home after a fun and tiring night. Also, not forgetting to thank our other sponsors of the night such as Tokyoninki and Lazada for being a part of the great night! Of course, one final thank you to G.A.B at the Tavern for the venue and hospitality :)

HOF 28

Lastly, we bid everyone farewell and we hope that #Nom2HallOfFame was a memory that everyone will remember for many years to come and see you again next year.

1. I was a competitive golfer who used to represent my state. Bet you wouldn’t believe it if you met me in person!


Around the time I was 12, my dad decided to teach both me and my mum to golf and after the both of us passed our handicap test, golfing was a daily family affair. We’d head over to the course around 5pm and manage to play around 5 or 6 holes before sunset. Looking back, those were wonderful family moments. I’ll always remember those times.

2. I have the same name as a very famous luxury car brand. Guess which one? Answer below. I discovered this interesting fact when I went to Germany (here’s your hint). Riddle aside, Germany is one place I want to go again because it is simply beautiful. I only managed to visit 2 places when I was there and it’s definitely on my to-visit list when the kids are older!

3. If you asked me to choose between reading and a movie, I’d take reading anytime.


Those of you who already follow my blog might know that I actually grew up without TV. Perhaps that’s why when asked to choose now, reading always trumps watching. I shall confess that I’m thoroughly addicted to reading. I get grouchy if I don’t get to read after a prolonged period, which is probably why Hubs decided to get me books for my birthday this year, especially since I had to spend it in confinement as Baby Junior was born then! #totalgeek

4. When I was 9, my classmate wrote that her ambition was to be a housewife. I couldn’t believe her lack of ambition. I asked her repeatedly, “Why do you want to be a housewife? You can write anything else!” She replied, “I don’t know what I’d like to be and what’s wrong with being a housewife anyway?” Now I’m a housewife and she’s a career woman. #eatingmywords

5. I have a dog named Truffle, whom Hubs and I got when we were living overseas.


While she isn’t my first pet, she is my first dog and I was really gung ho when we first got her. I did a lot of reading up on dog training and every day after work, I would rush home to train her to potty and do doggy tricks. One of my proudest achievements is training her to potty in the toilet. Regardless of whose house she’s in, she knows how to find the toilet and potty there. #ikidyounot


Answer to Fact 2: Mercedes-Benz. Mercedes is a Spanish name which means Grace.

Malaysia is a multicultural country and well-known for their great delicacies. Most of the food in Malaysia has a twist of spiciness and that is what makes our country special.

Malaysia’s spicy food is also popular among tourists and it is definitely a must-have when they visit Malaysia.


People are usually very gung-ho when it comes to spicy food, even though some of them can’t bear the spiciness but the ‘syok-ness’ keeps them wanting more. Honestly, foodies don’t mind eating spicy food under the scorching hot sun as long they can fill their happy tummy with good food. Here’s a trick – spicy food makes you sweat, and sweating actually cools the body down!

Curry Mee

Speaking of spicy food, most of our Nuffies love it too. Living in Malaysia, you definitely won’t miss the taste of “Sambal” and spicy foods despite the hot weather.

“Nasi Ayam Kunyit” is one of our favourite choices for lunch. The wonder that is Nasi Ayam Kunyit is quite a distance from the office, but nothing can stop us from enjoying the delicious taste of spicy chicken with steaming hot rice. Trust us, although it is really spicy, it’s the kind of pedas that will keep you coming back for more.

nasi Kunyit

As spicy as the food may look, we have a way to stop the spiciness – Mamee Cool Tea. Mamee Cool Tea consists of eight different herbs that aim to cool the body down.


With Mamee Cool Tea, all this spicy food is nothing to us!

A sip of Mamee Cool Tea will relieve that burning sensation, allowing you to eat even more of that delicious spicy Ayam Kunyit, Daging Masak Cili Padi, or Sambal Belacan.

Cool tea

Unfortunately, Malaysia’s eternal summer often leads to the Nuffies falling sick.

However, we no longer complain about the heat whether it is burning our mouths or searing us from above as we have Mamee Cool Tea and it can be in any convenience store.

Nuffies 1

So what we’re trying to tell you guys is that you should try out the all new Mamee Cool Tea, as their tagline says “Lagi Cool, Lagi Best!”
