Uncle Kentang, Joey Mattress Donates Mattresses to 26 Families in Need 

● Many poorer families are unable to invest in their sleep during this pandemic because they need the money for daily necessities and bills 

● 26 mattresses and 15 pillows were donated to underprivileged families in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Perak, Johor, and Pahang 

● Some recipients were senior citizens (75-85 years old) who slept on thin sponge mattresses on their wooden floor 

● Individuals in need can follow Uncle Kentang’s page to request Joey Mattress products when the next donation drive is announced 

KUALA LUMPUR, SELANGOR – Uncle Kentang and Joey Mattress teamed up to donate RM52,220 worth of mattresses and pillows to underprivileged families from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Perak, Johor, and Pahang. 

Many Malaysian families were affected by this pandemic, and in an effort to save money, many cannot afford to spend on non-essential goods anymore. Such families may be in need of a good mattress but they need the money for more essential expenses such as bills and groceries.

However, getting a great night’s rest is needed for an individual to be productive. By providing these families with a good bed, Uncle Kentang and Joey Mattress hope to give the breadwinners great sleep so that they are in their best state to provide for their families.

“We hope that with better sleep, they can work more diligently the next day to provide for their families,” Mr Kuan said. 

One of the mattress recipients lived in a wooden house with 4 kids, and slept on thin sponge mattresses stacked upon one another. Another recipient was an 85-year-old lady who slept on a thin old mattress on their hard wooden floor. Other recipients of the mattresses sleep in conditions similar to these. 

“Joey Mattress is focused on bringing better sleep to all Malaysians, not just paying customers. All our products have an in-home trial policy. If customers return our products after that trial, we will sanitise and donate the returned goods. It is our honour to assist in providing great sleep to more Malaysians,” explained Joey Tan, the co-founder and CMO of Joey Mattress. 

“We look forward to long-term collaboration with Uncle Kentang to donate our mattresses to people in need,” Joey concluded. Individuals in need can follow Uncle Kentang on Facebook to request Joey Mattress products when their next donation drive is announced.

His charity organisation engages in community services such as food distribution, ambulance arrangements, and funeral services. He was recently recognised by the Queen of England for his efforts and has been awarded the Commonwealth Points of Light award for his service to the Malaysian public. Follow Uncle Kentang on Facebook for regular updates on his projects and how individuals can help.

Danial has over 100 car models to choose from every day. How does an ordinary guy like Danial do it?

Meet Danial. Danial is your average guy. He works hard and has a family.

One day, Danial decides to take his wife and children on a holiday. Danial’s parents want to come along too. It’s so exciting! The kids can’t wait. They will take a road trip from KL to Penang, stop at Ipoh for white coffee, and be in Penang by lunch for asam laksa. But… Danial has a problem.

Danial’s car is too small! 

However, Danial is not worried, because he has TREVO to lift up his driving experiences!

TREVO is the largest car-rental marketplace in Malaysia. Think of it as an “Airbnb” for cars. With just a mobile app, Danial has the biggest selection of cars at his fingertips. It is so easy! Danial rents an SUV for his family in no time. All he has to do is:

  • download the TREVO app
    iOS App Store
    Google Play Store
  • complete the profile
  • take a selfie with his IC
  • take a photo with his driving license (documents are verified within seconds)
  • select the date of his road trip to check for availability
  • click ‘request booking’

And voila, he has an SUV ready for his family road trip!

On the day of the trip, the car is delivered via TREVO Delivery right to Danial’s doorstep.

The best part? TREVO offers up to 50% off on your first trip! This is important to Danial because money doesn’t grow on trees. 

There are actually many options — hatchbacks, sedans, SUVs, and many more. Regardless if you’re going for a special date night, attending events, or simply wish to experience the specialness of the car, you can choose from more than 4500 cars and 150 models from brands like BMW, Mini, Audi, and even Porsche! That’s how Danial got a taste of a Porsche for a day. Services are available in the Klang Valley, Kota Kinabalu, Johor Bahru, and Penang.

If you’re in the Klang Valley and need a chauffeur, hire a Buddy Driver to drive your personal car. No need to worry about parking, jams, or staying awake on the road. Just chill in the passenger seat as your Buddy Driver takes you to your destination.


And then Danial has an idea. Since bills don’t pay themselves, Danial thought, “Why not host my car on TREVO?” 

Danial’s idea is smart because when he uses TREVO to host his car,

  • payment is quick. He gets paid two weeks after a trip is completed
  • payment is easy. The money goes straight into his bank account 
  • he can offset his car loan and maintenance costs
  • he can access TREVO Guard to renew his car insurance via the TREVO app

But Danial is a little worried at first. His car is his baby. Offering his baby to some random stranger doesn’t sit well, but he is quickly assured because TREVO Shield protects him for up to RM3 million against damages to his vehicle, damage or injury, as well as fire and theft.

And the process to register as a TREVO host is easy too! All Danial has to do is:

  • share his car details
  • choose his protection plan
  • safeguard his car with TREVO track
  • choose his car features
  • set his preferred pricing
  • upload photos of his car
  • preview his profile

Danial is now a proud TREVO host and user.

Danial is smart. Be like Danial. Download the TREVO app today and lift your life on Malaysia’s largest car-rental marketplace.

How Businesses Can Thrive In This Endemic

As of October 2021, 90% of Malaysian adults have been fully vaccinated and it won’t be long before we hit the 100% mark. Lately, we are seeing improvement in the nation’s economy as well as the increase of consumer spending as malls, shops, eateries, and services are reopening. This is indeed great news for business owners and SMEs who are slowly gearing up to welcome their customers once again. 

Back in January 2021, EcoWorld and iMedia joined hands and initiated the Bina Bersama 2021 project to support small businesses and start-ups by giving shortlisted SME candidates a total of RM1 Million* worth of digital media value. Since then, the Bina Bersama 2021 programme had a 90% take up rate despite all the uncertainties and challenges faced by business owners during the first three quarters of the year. While the nation learns to live with COVID-19, more businesses are reopening, entrepreneurial projects are taking place, and even construction and renovators are starting their engine to contribute and benefit Malaysia’s economy from here on. With that said, Bina Bersama 2021 is still looking to aid new or existing SMEs before the end of 2021.

“We are delighted to have EcoWorld on board our Bina Bersama campaign for over the past 10 months. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand the challenges one goes through during tough economic situations and this is our way of giving back to local businesses with the media assets we have.

LaLiga Santander Matchday 12 preview:The Basque Derby between Real Sociedad and Athletic Club takes centre stage

The midweek round of goals and dramatic LaLiga Santander action is over, but there’s another dose of top-flight Spanish football coming up straight away as Matchday 12 takes place this weekend. There are several fascinating games, from Valencia CF and Villarreal CF’s derby to FC Barcelona’s first match of the post-Ronald Koeman era to the first Basque Derby of the season. It promises to be a thrilling weekend of football in Spain’s top flight.

The first match of the round is Real Madrid’s trip to take on Elche CF at the Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero, a stadium where the Franjiverdes held the Blancos to a draw last season. That is the early game on Saturday, at 14:00 CEST, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side looking to get back to winning ways after being held to a midweek draw at home to CA Osasuna. Meanwhile, Elche CF will hope to catch Real Madrid napping in this early kick-off.

The next fixture is a clash between Sevilla FC and CA Osasuna, with the Andalusians boasting a 100 percent record at home so far this season and the Rojillos having won four and drawn one of their five away matches so far. It’ll be interesting to see whether the excellent home record or away record is extended.

A big derby match then follows, with Valencia CF taking on Villarreal CF at Mestalla on Saturday evening. These two clubs have had disappointing starts to the season, so will be targeting a win in this hotly anticipated Valencian Community clash to jumpstart their campaigns.

FC Barcelona then return to action at 21:00 CEST on Saturday night for their first match since the sacking of Ronald Koeman. That came when the Blaugrana lost a second match in a row in midweek, falling to Rayo Vallecano after also losing ElClásico three days earlier. The fans at the Camp Nou will expect a response from the players, now led by caretaker coach Sergi Barjuán, as they host a Deportivo Alavés side who have won their past two games. There is great expectation as a new era kicks off at Barça.

On Sunday, Cádiz CF will look to get back to winning ways after a series of disappointing results when they host RCD Mallorca in the first match of the day. Likewise, champions Atlético Madrid are hoping to bounce back from two 2-2 draws in a row when they host a high-flying Real Betis side that actually come into this fixture with more points. Diego Simeone has enjoyed eight wins and one draw from the nine times he has coached in this fixture, although he’ll have to experience his 10th home match against Real Betis from the stands due to a suspension.

Getafe CF then take on RCD Espanyol in southern Madrid, with the Azulones still searching for their first victory of the season. They came so close to claiming it in midweek, only for a 97th minute goal to deny them the three points and leave them with just a point from their trip to Granada CF. Against one of his former clubs, new Geta coach Quique Sánchez Flores will hope to achieve that much-needed first victory.

Then comes the game that takes centre stage in Matchday 12, the first Basque Derby of the season. It’s Real Sociedad vs Athletic Club under the Reale Arena floodlights, with so much on the line given that La Real come into this fixture as league leaders. Athletic Club will be determined to take three points from their rivals’ home to knock them off top spot and dent the Txuri-Urdin title challenge, as they did back in 2002/03, the last time Real Sociedad mounted a serious title challenge. This fixture is always special and this Sunday’s game should be no different.

On Monday, there are two more matches in Spain’s top flight, with Rayo Vallecano looking to keep up their 100 percent home record in the first of them. The team from Vallecas have won all five of their matches played so far in the Madrid neighbourhood, including Wednesday’s victory over FC Barcelona, and now they’ll host RC Celta Vigo this Monday evening. That’s before Levante UD vs Granada CF concludes the matchday, with both these sides entering the weekend inside the bottom four and in need of some valuable LaLiga Santander points.
