neetbites - Freeze dried snacks. No preservatives, no nasties
Outer space and astronauts - are these the first things that pop into your mind when you hear ‘freeze-dried snacks’? Freeze drying became a very popular culinary technique when NASA used it to create freeze-dried ice creams for astronauts. But thanks to neetbites, we can enjoy good quality freeze-dried snacks too, while living comfortably on Earth.
neetbites is a healthy fruit snack company born out of MCO 3.0 that sells premium high quality freeze-dried fruit snacks. Freeze-drying technology is used to draw out moisture from the fruit, resulting in a light and airy texture, while retaining 96% of its nutrients, aroma and flavour! Their range of freeze-dried snacks include fruits like red apples, Korean strawberries, mango and yoghurt cubes. All their freeze-dried snacks are made using 100% real fruits, with zero added sugar, preservatives and artificial flavouring. Not to mention, they are highly nutritious, and low in fat and calories!
neetbites’ most unique item has got to be the freeze-dried yoghurt cubes, flavoured with real strawberries, blueberries and peach! Not only are they fun and colourful to look at, they add a great boost of probiotics, antioxidants, vitamin C and of course, a light crunchy texture to your breakfast bowl!

Earth Heir - Keeping the art of weaving alive
If you grew up in Malaysia in the 20th century, you would have most likely learned the art of weaving in art class at school.

In Malaysia, mengkuang, a type of plant that grows wildly in the woods, is used to create household items like food covers, floor mats and baskets. Nowadays, brands like Earth Heir use mengkuang to weave fashionable statement pieces like purses, handbags, jewelleries and so much more!

Perfectly Tea - Health tea that empowers wellness
An absolute must have at your next tea party! To me, the perfect cup of tea needs to make me feel refreshed and energised throughout the day, and calm and relaxed at night. It should also have all the essential nutrients that keep our body healthy.
Flavonoids in tea leaves are rich in antioxidants, which is beneficial in reducing daily oxidative stress that can lead to chronic diseases. Moreover, the caffeine content in tea is lower than that of coffee and does not have an abrupt effect on our body.
Perfectly Tea is crafted by women, for women. They strive to inspire and empower all women to achieve their perfect state every day, one tea cup at a time. All their teas, including their best sellers, the Power to Create and Beauty Sleep Tea are made from premium ingredients without any chemicals - for a fuller flavour and deeper aroma.
