Autumnz Home & Car Bottle Warmer Review – Malaysian Daddy

Should you buy the Autumnz Home & Car Bottle Warmer?

At the time I’m writing this article, I have 2 daughters. My eldest daughter is 2 and a half years old. My younger daughter is 3 and a half months old.

My older daughter still drinks her formula milk, and with her, it is not much of a challenge.

When we go out, what my wife and I did was to bring along a hot water flask. We can mix the milk in her bottle and she can drink it anywhere without any fuss.

My younger daughter on the other hand is a bit challenging. She is still on breast milk and storing the milk in a thermos is not going to work.

What we did previously was to store a bottle of my wife’s milk in a bag, and when our baby is hungry, we will put the bottle in a cup of hot water.

As you can see, trying to get the right temperature for our baby’s consumption was not an easy task. The milk either ends up being too warm or not warm enough.

We had to keep drip testing the milk and it can become quite a mess….especially in our car.

So what’s the solution?

Getting a milk bottle warmer for our car.

Autumnz Baby Products

Autumnz Home & Car Bottle Warmer

Not too long ago, I bought a car milk bottle warmer from Autumnz. We are familiar with Autumnz product because my wife has been using their plastic breast milk storage bags.

What I like about Autumnz car warmer is the price.

I got if from Lazada Malaysia for only RM79 with free delivery.

I ordered it online and the package was delivered to my house within 3 days.

My Personal Experience

So, what is my experience with the car bottle warmer?

So far, we’ve used it on trips to the mall and trips to my in-laws place in Sri Damansara.

Operational wise, it is very straight forward. Just plug the car power converter into the cigarette lighter, set the desired temperature and pour some water into the warmer.

We are using NUK baby bottle and it fits perfectly in the warmer. I believe bottles from other brand such as Avent, Tommee, Tippee, MAM, Dr Browns etc will fit in the warmer without any problem.

The water in the warmer heats up quite fast and within 10 minutes, the milk temperature is just nice for my baby.

Useful Tip For Parents

Here’s a tip if you are planning to buy Autumnz Home & Car Bottle Warmer.

Although the warmer can be used in a car, try not using it while your car is moving.

Trust me, I did that and the water in the warmer WILL spill.

So it is best to stop your car, plug in the warmer, heat up the milk and feed your baby. When everything is done and your baby has been burped, continue on your journey.

Am I happy with the car bottle warmer from Autumnz?

For only RM79, it is a great deal. It does everything I wanted it to do.

My final conclusion is…YES, I am happy and I’ll highly recommend to every parents who are planning to buy a car bottle warmer.

Best Car Video Recorder In Malaysia – Cost Less Than RM60!

Using a Car Video Recorder On Your Vehicle

A car video recorder is not yet a popular device in Malaysia. But in countries such as Thailand and Taiwan, it is a very common tool.

If you think about it, installing a car camera or DVR on your car has a lot of advantage.

It is very useful if you were involved in an accident.

Who is at fault?

When 2 person gets into a minor accident in Malaysia, who is at fault?

When 2 drivers involved in an accident, if it is serious, the drivers will have to go to the police station to make a police report. Now, who is at fault is left to the police officer to decide.

Sometimes, the police officer has very limited evidence to work with. He makes a decision by studying the damage on your car and also the scene of the accident.

When the evidence is insufficient, sometimes, you may be found to be at fault even though you are innocent.

When you are at fault, you will be fined RM300. Sometimes, both drivers will be deemed at fault and fined RM300 each.

What if you could produce an actual video when the accident happened? That would be a great evidence to argue your case, wouldn’t it?

That’s why fitting a car camera has so many advantages to the driver.

Best DVR Camera in Malaysia

I’ve been doing some research on DVR car camera in Malaysia and found a great deal on Lazada.

It is a generic DVR camera made in China but with a 6 months local manufacturer warranty.

The best thing is, it is very affordable!

At the time I am writing this, the DVR camera is selling for only RM58 inclusive delivery. That is an awesome deal!

Car Camera Malaysia

The camera has a large capacity recording storage. It can hold a 32GB SDHC card which will meet all your recording requirement. The loop function will automatically delete your old video files after some time.

It has 6 Infrared Night Vision LED meaning it can record during night time.

RM58 is a great investment. Think about it.

If you are wrongly blamed for causing an accident, you will be fined RM300. If you were to claim your auto insurance, you will also loose your NCB and that will add up to a few hundred or a few thousand ringgit.

Be smart. Install a DVR car camera today.

Removal of Broken Down or Abandoned Vehicles in Malaysia

I have been a driving school instructor for over more than 40 years. However, it has to be admitted that my knowledge pertaining to the Road Transport Ordinance (RTO) 1987 is rather limited.

Many motorists, it is believed, do not realize that the above is also known as Act 333 is followed extremely rigidly by the Road Transport Department or the Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ). Of course, I know that a driver who wishes to secure a Class D driving license, has to attain 17 years of age before he or she can apply to drive a car.

To drive a motorized vehicle, one has to possess a “license”. Failing which, a person can be charged under Section 26(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

And also, I am also aware that to “take part in illegal motorcycle races” or “merempit motor”, as the youths of our country call it, contraverses Section 81 of the Road Transport Ordinance (RTO) 1987.

Amongst some of the punishments embedded in the above section is a fine of RM2000. The “machine” or ‘motorcycles” used in such illegal races can even be “confiscated” by the authorities.

Abandon Cars

As a motorist, have you ever asked yourself this. Do you know anything about the “Removal of Broken Down Vehicles or Abandoned Vehicles” which we often see along our highways, expressways and even in busy, town areas in places such as Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Johor Baru, Ipoh and Georgetown?

Have you ever pondered over this subject in your many years as a driver?

My limited knowledge regarding this section of the Road Transport Ordinance 1987 or Act 333, has finally led me today, to endeavour writing about Section 65 of the above act. Hopefully this article will render immense assistance to all drivers and motorcyclists alike.

In future, it is hoped, you will know what to do should your vehicle break down or is involved in an accident and therefore has to be abandoned along the expressway or a busy thoroughfare.

Some 15 or 20 years ago, my younger brother, B.K. Yap, now 57 years, unfortunately met an accident along Jalan Haji Sirat, near Klang Utama Housing Estate. His wrecked motorcycle, a Suzuki model, was removed by the police authorities from the scene of the accident.

Before this, I had always hold the contention that vehicles involved in an accident, could not be removed from the scene of the accident. Unless of course, the removed was authorized by the police.

But the funny thing was, in the accident that involved my younger brother, the removal of “his” motorcycle from the scene of the accident, was carried out by a motorcycle dealer nearby.

Did the motorcycle repair shop in reality, have the right to do what he did?

At that particular time, I felt that he didn’t.

How wrong was I! This showed how IGNORANT I was then regarding Section 65 of the Road Transport Ordinance 1987.

Read on, and you’ll shortly know what I mean.

Section 65 of the Road Transport Ordinance 1987 or Act 333, reiterated, that a vehicle “which causes obstruction to people or is an inconvenience to people and causes danger”, can be removed.

Who has the right to remove the broken down or abandoned vehicle?

Inafct, only 3 authorities possess the right to order the removal of broken down or abandoned vehicles. The relevant authorities are:

1) A police officer

2) The Datuk Bandar or “Mayor” of cities like Kuala Lumpur or his men.

3) Along highways and expressways, without a doubt, it is the Director-general of the Highway Authority who can do this.

Coming back to the question of my younger brother’s accident which happened years ago, did the private motorcycle dealer, who obviously got the directive from the Klang Police Traffic Division to remove the wrecked motorcycle from the scene of the accident, have the authority to do what they did?

Reflecting upon it, infact they did.

Who can be directed to remove the broke down or abandoned vehicle?

According to Section 65 of the RTO 1987, the owner of the vehicle or the driver of the vehicle or any other person possessing the authority at that particular time, are the ones that can be directed.

Where can the broken down or abandoned vehicle be taken to?

The authorities, it is said can cause the above mentioned vehicle to be removed to some suitable place and there to remain at risk of the owner. Furthermore, the above vehicle can be detained until fees as may be prescribed under the Act of removal or detention is settled.

To whom are the public to pay the removal fees available?

Fees are payable to the Chief Police Officer, if removal was done by the police authorities.

To the Datuk Bandar, if it is done by a traffic warden or any officer in the DBKL who has been authorised in writing by the Datuk Bandar to perform the removal.

And finally, payment can also be made to the Director-general of the Highway Authority of Malaysia.

Will there be any liability to be incurred by those removing the vehicle?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is NO!

Section 65 of the RTO 1987 or Act 333, reiterates very clearly, a police officer, the Datuk Bandar and the Highway Authority of Malaysia, shall not incur any liability in respect to any loss or damage caused to any vehicle or the fittings and contents there of in its course of removal or while it is being detained, UNLESS such damage was caused NEGLIGENTLY or WILLFULLY.

What should the authorities detaining the vehicle do whilst they detain a vehicle?

The officer detaining a vehicle, with reasonable dispatch, must give notice in writing of such detention to the owner of the vehicle if the name/ address of the owner is known to him.

If such motor vehicle is NOT claimed by the owner within 3 MONTHS of its detention, the officer may, after giving 1 MONTH’s notice in the Gazette, of his intention to do so, sell by public auction or otherwise dispose off such motor vehicle and its load (if any), provide that no such notice be given in the case of any load of perishable nature.

Proceeds, if any, from such/ disposal, will be used to settle payments imposed under this Act. The surplus, is any, shall be paid to the owner of the vehicle and if not claimed buy the owner within 12 MONTHS after the date of sale/ disposal, shall be forfeited to the Federal Government, the Datuk Bandar or the Director-general of the Highway Authority as the case may be.

Finally, it should be borne in mind, that without prejudice, the powers of the minister under Section 66, the Datuk Bandar and the Director-general of the Highway Authority, may after consultations with the Minister impose fees for the removal of any vehicles from any road within the Federal Territory of KL and the detention thereof in accordance with this section.

Study this article well and hopefully it will be of some help to you as a Malaysian motorist! Eventually, I hope you’ll become a better and knowledgeable driver.
