The Junk Restaurant (Kuching) - Plagiarism at its finest

We've been actively drawing artworks to entertain our readers, thus you can easily find our artworks in the internet (google).

  • exhibits in public any infringing copy by way of trade;
  • makes or has in his possession any contrivance used or intended to be used for the purpose of making infringing copies

We were informed by one of our fan regarding the issue where a local restaurant used our artwork on their food packagings. They removed our watermark at the bottom and added in their restaurant's name "From The Junk Management". 
Above is our original artwork
This is what the restaurant did to our artwork (Cropping out the watermark and added their restaurant's name)
We manage to contact The Junk management. However, they choose not to response to us after we dropped them a quotation.

In case you wondered where's the restaurant, feel free to drop by their FB - The Junk Restaurant and "Rate" them :D

This post will stay up online until the issue is resolved.

Last but not least, SAY NO TO PLAGIARISM!

By the way, someone printed our artwork on a cake too. Well, we don't really mind but can we have a share of the cake too?

Discovering Wonders of Fernleaf Milk with theeggyolks

As little yolkie is in a growing age, he always wanted to grow big and tall, at least taller than the girls in his class. So we told him, the only way to do that is to drink a lot of MILK! 

However, ever since milk were commercialised, a lot of colouring, sweetener and other additives were added to make it taste good so that kids love them. That eventually became a concern of parents like us. Too much sugar in a child's diet is never a good thing. 
With that said, we need to survey the content of all the milk products being sold in the market and it’s easier said than done. Well, the good news is, the Health Ministry came up with a brilliant idea! The ministry helps to identify the healthier products on the shelf and gave it s HCL stamp! (well, literally…)

HCL actually stands for “Healthier Choice” Logo endorsed by the Ministry of Health. Government introduced “Healthier Choice” logo to help consumers to make healthier purchases on the food and beverages that they purchase in ensuring it meets certain level of nutrients criteria especially in terms of sugar intake/level. 

Statistically, Malaysian has one of the highest rates of diabetes among our neighbouring countries. There are about 2.5 million adults with diabetes in Malaysia, those aged 18 and above, which means, 1 out of 6 young adults had diabetes!!!

So when we ought to be extra careful when choosing products from the shelves. Always look for products with HCL logo and read the nutritional table before making the final decision.  
Stay healthy and stay active with Fernleaf UHT milk!
