Petaling Jaya, 23 February 2021 – Honda Malaysia (or the Company) took a step forward to be with Malaysians during this challenging time by helping the communities around us that were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and flood disaster. As such, the Company has distributed necessities to identified Malaysians, including ‘Flood Safety Kit’ for the recent flood victims in Pahang, facemasks for schools and laptops for underprivileged students in February 2021.

Kuala Lumpur, February 2021 - CERTAINTY, a brand under Disposable Soft Goods (DSG) has recently unveiled the concept of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) to assist Malaysians in their purchasing behavior, primarily for its adult diaper selection. ADL is a commonly used term in the healthcare industry to refer to people’s daily life activities. ADL consists of 6 main activities which include eating, bathing, getting dressed, toileting, mobility and continence. With this new concept brought forth, DSG designed its CERTAINTY adult diapers that cater to the needs of the users, based on users’ mobility condition.
Depending on the mobility condition of the user, the selection of the adult diapers is largely divided into ‘light to moderate’ or ‘moderate to heavy’ incontinence. Users who can walk independently or walk with walking aid, are generally having ‘light to moderate’ incontinence. Whereas users who need assistance or are bedridden, they normally have ‘moderate to heavy’ incontinence. Icon of the mobility condition and level of absorption are printed on the packaging to help consumers to choose the right type of adult diaper.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Malaysia was keen on pushing SMEs to be digitally-enabled and technologically equipped to meet the demands of an increasingly digital world, and was set to achieve these goals by the year 2022. According to SME Corp, digitalisation was to come, given that all SME will shift to cashless payment.
Fast forward to now, 5,634 applications from SMEs have been received for the SME Business Digitalization Grant initiative, which 90% of the applications have been approved as of end of last year. SMEs in Malaysia are evidently harnessing the power of technology to survive. However, the increased online activities also open loopholes for cybercriminals.
