ANLENE MOVEMAX FEEL YOUNG FEST 2016 AT QUEENSBAY MALL PENANG

In conjunction with the introduction of the new Anlene with MoveMax™ which includes Calcium, Collagen and Protein for the well-being of bones, joints and muscles, dairy giant Fonterra Brands Malaysia, has recently launched an experiential showcase at Queensbay Mall, Penang (31 August 2016 – 4 September 2016) to get Malaysians to “move as young as they feel inside”. He explained that there needs to be more awareness on the importance of movement as one gets older. “We want to empower more Malaysians to come out of their shells and get moving as young as they feel inside. While they may emotionally feel younger inside, they need to align their physical movement to appear fresh and dynamic on the outside – not to be defined by age. Research showed that active adults have a 30% higher chance of enhanced wellbeing than inactive adults. Movement does not need to be a chore, it can be joyful and fun,” said Mr. Paulo Ocampo, Marketing Manager of Anlene for Malaysia.

Public can pay a visit to the ground floor concourse of Queensbay Mall, Penang, to get FREE mobility checks (worth RM120) at the respective MoveCheck counters, thereafter, getting FREE consultation to know how to improve your bones, joints and muscles.

If you are in for more FREEBIES, you could always join in for more fun at 3 more action games corners, namely dance arcade, trampoline and tyre swinging. Just remember that youth has no age and always trust in your own abilities when you think you can’t. Do stay positive mentally and physically, then you would realize that there’s no such thing as IMPOSSIBLE. It’s always I’M POSSIBLE.

Moreover, you would also get FREE try outs of Anlene MoveMax™ plain & chocolate beverages plus yoghurt (4 flavors available). Though the beverages were really nice when served chilled, my preference was the yoghurt which was thick and flavorful to my liking, especially when they were frozen and taken just like ice cream.

On top of that, you would get more options to purchase RM20 worth of products and get MORE FREEBIES at the “Spin to Win” counter or Buy RM98 worth of products to claim a beautiful 500ml Stainless Steel Flask. Anlene with MoveMax™ contains important nutrients such as Calcium, Collagen, Protein, as well as other nutrients such as magnesium, zinc, and Vitamins B, C, D & E in a nutrient bundle to help care for your bones, joints and muscles.

Cheese always pair well with wine, thus the chef had prepared some cheese spread such as bleu cheese, brie, cheddar, mozzarella plus some vegetable sticks, fruits and crackers to blend in with the occasion for the night.

WOWLAUNCH04 photo WOWLAUNCH04_zps637c4bd5.jpg

Now, let me introduce you to a few of the top selling brands for the wines. Firstly, there’s the De Bortoli Sparkling Brut N/V (Australia – Glass: RM60+/ Bottle: RM250+, Non-Vintage). The sparkling wine was bubbly refreshing with fresh fruit flavors and smooth to drink. It had some delicate, creamy and crisp acid finishes. This medium-dry and light bodied wine would be best enjoyed as an aperitif.

WOWLAUNCH05 photo WOWLAUNCH05_zps140016dc.jpg

WOWLAUNCH06 photo WOWLAUNCH06_zps773df0af.jpg

Next, we had a sample tasting on 3 different white wines such as the Parellada Torres Mas Rabell (Spain – Glass: RM35+ / Bottle: RM150+), Bianco, Frescobaldi Remole Toscana (Italy – Bottle: RM170+) and Sauvignon Blanc, Deen Bortoli Vat 2 (Australia – Bottle: RM160+). The fresh, light bodied and uncomplicated Parellada Torres Mas Rabell Spanish wine was pleasantly fruity with a light sparkling acidity. Its freshness fits excellent consumption during young years. The Bianco, Frescobaldi Remole Toscana is a pale straw color shot through with greenish highlights and has a lovely fruitiness on the nose, with confident notes of ripe pear and nectarine. Its delicate floral notes continue onto a palate that is crisp, tangy and full-flavored. The Italian wine would act as an excellent aperitif to enhance flavors in salads, pasta and fish. On the other hand, the award winning (2013 Brisbane Wine Show – Gold Medal, 2013 International Wine & Spirit Competition – Bronze Medal and 2013 Perth Wine Show – Bronze Medal) Sauvignon Blanc, Deen Bortoli Vat 2 is perhaps the best value range of wine amongst the 3 option stated above based on its refreshing and fruity taste. It’s bright on the nose with hints of snow pea and passion fruit, almost similar to the smell of guavas with a light touch of the aroma of freshly chopped parsley. It’s also crisp and lively on the palate with tropical fruit flavors and cleansing acidity.

WOWLAUNCH07 photo WOWLAUNCH07_zps81258f03.jpg

We also tasted 3 different red wines such as the Carinena Garnacha, Torres Mas Rabell (Spain – Glass: RM35+ / Bottle: RM170+), Frescobaldi Remole Toscana IGT (Italy – Bottle: RM140+) and Shiraz, Deen Bortoli Vat 8 (Australia – Bottle: RM160+). The Carinena Garnacha, Torres Mas Rabell is deep ruby colored with a hint of ochre with rather complex notes of spices and blackberries, almost similar to a fruity version of licorice. The Spanish red wine would be ideal to pair with hearty dishes such as meat roasts and casseroles. The Frescobaldi Remole Toscana IGT has a luminous ruby of appealing depth, rich and announces an equally complex nose, peppery spicy with multi-faceted aromas of red and dark fruits. The entry is velvety and warm with a tasty vein of acidity and an aromatic fruity finish. It can be enjoyed on all occasions especially with those non-spicy charcuterie pastas with tomato base. Lastly, we also tasted the Shiraz, Deen Bortoli Vat 8 which had a distinctive dry prunes aroma, red and black berries flavors and soft oaky nuance. The palate offers sweet and ripe fruits characteristics with a light touch of peppery and oaky tannins.
