ANLENE MOVEMAX FEEL YOUNG FEST 2016 AT QUEENSBAY MALL PENANG

Written by crizlai on Sep 1st, 2016 | Filed under: announcement, campaign, penang, product, promotion, review

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.

The powdered form comes in two flavours – plain and chocolate and is available in 1kg, 600g and 175g packs.

PAMPERING YOURSELF WITH ASIA’S FIRST RHYTHM & MOTION SPA TREATMENTS AT ROCK SPA @ HARD ROCK HOTEL PENANG

Written by crizlai on Sep 10th, 2015 | Filed under: hotel, life, lifestyle, living, massage, penang, product, promotion, review

Whenever I see someone struggling with life and not setting his/her life in proper rhythm, I would always throw in this question, “What’s the purpose of your life?” It caught many off guarded by not being able to provide a proper answer. Most would answer that they would want to have a stable career, set up a family and grow old gracefully with their grandchildren. Is that the ultimate answer to the question? Well, there’s no right or wrong answer to the question as each individual has their own mindset on different life purposes. As for me, I would strive for a balance in everything – the Zen way of bringing the mind, body and senses in a state of togetherness. When you work hard, you must always play hard too. Thus, this brings me to the topic on how to rejuvenate ourselves, mentally and physically by giving both states the necessary alignments to move forward in our daily lives. I’m glad Rock Spa @ Hard Rock Hotel, Penang, has the same ideology as me by transcending the current spa rituals with their “Live Hard, Purify Harder” slogan and bringing in Asia’s first and the world’s 5th Rhythm and Motion Spa Treatments, with the other four sets in HRH Ibiza (Spain), HRH Palm Springs (California), HRH Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) and HRH Riviera Maya (Mexico). Being the world’s first fully immersive music centric spa menu by utilizing amplified vibrations, pressures and patterns as the foundation of its treatments, this groundbreaking experience takes guests on a rhythmic massage journey, utilizing Hard Rock’s differentiator (MUSIC) to connect the healing power of music with the artistry of massage therapy.

ROCKSPAMENU01 photo ROCKSPAMENU01_zpsoki7rwov.jpg

Located at beach front of Hard Rock Hotel, Penang, is a little tranquil yet natural sanctuary by its own named Rock Spa. Upon nearing the premises, you would smell a nice scent lingering through the air. That’s the spa’s way of welcoming you into their little haven with the free flowing of relaxing aromatherapy essential oil called “Perk Me Up”, a combination of lemongrass, peppermint and eucalyptus oils to soothe your mood prior to your spa treatments. Other than being the natural deodorant, it also acts as an analgesic, antidepressant, antimicrobial, antipyretic, a digestive support agent, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, antiseptic, antibacterial, stimulating and other medicinal qualities. What a great scent to have especially during this cold and hazy weather~ 🙂

ROCKSPA01 photo ROCKSPA01_zpsbonas29t.jpg

Upon your acceptance to experience the spa treatments at Rock Spa, you would first be served with a hot cup of Ginger Tea. It’s a relaxant beverage which would help in relieving your stress level, strengthen your immunity, improving digestion on top of it other anti-inflammatory and anti-respiratory health benefits.

ROCKSPA03 photo ROCKSPA03_zpscbes8avq.jpg

There are 3 packages, namely Synchronicity, Face the Music and Heat Wave, available for your Rhythm & Motion Spa Treatments as shown on the menu below. Basically, these 3 options are add-ons to their existing spa treatments (a gentle Hard Rock Massage/a more pressure point concentrated Traditional Malaysian Massage, a facial concentrated Essential Aromatherapy and the more energy points focus Hot Rocks treatment for the seasoned spa-goers) with the usage of the state-of-the-art music systems.

ROCKSPAMENU02 photo ROCKSPAMENU02_zpswvushbp2.jpg

You would also be given another option to choose the type of massage oil you would want to utilize during your massage session such as Balance (detoxification: rosemary + orange + basil), Energize (relieve muscle stress: ginger + grapefruit + eucalyptus) or Chill (relaxation: lavender + geranium + cedarwood).

ROCKSPA02 photo ROCKSPA02_zpszew0aziw.jpg

As I’m always down with muscle stiffness and back pain due to my hazardous working style, I opted for their Heat Wave package plus the usage of their Energize massage oil. Firstly, as part of their Etiquette Rules, all spa treatment seekers had to change to their provided “disposable” undergarments. It felt like putting my “ahems” into an airy recycle bag~ LOL~ 😛 However, you don’t have to worry as you are in the good hands of the skilled therapist as he/she would always ensure comfortable and proper draping procedures to protect your privacy. Other Etiquette Rules include punctuality (at least 10 minutes earlier) before your scheduled appointment, no inappropriate behaviors and the advice of not bringing valuables into Rock Spa. The treatment room would also a wardrobe for keeping your belongings, a basin with mirror, drinking water, comb, hair clips, etc at your disposal.

ROCKSPA05 photo ROCKSPA04_zpsmskctvq3.jpg

The spa treatment was remarkably an out-of-the-world experience, none that I’ve encountered through my various spa treatments. It started off with some soothing yet TREBLE based beats from the overhead semi-sphere like space-age musical source with ripples of BASS slowing seeping into the body with mild vibrations via the massage table. Wow! This is the kind of therapeutic massage I’ve been seeking for a long time! I was in such a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere that I almost dozed off in zero-stress mental state. The music emitted which I presumed had a balance of frequencies such as Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Theta waves indeed churned out the best in me – energy wise, alertness wise, creativity wise, memory wise and more. My brain cells were totally revitalized and I had a great sleep that night. On the other hand, the Vibration Therapy via the massage table did improve my muscle soreness and my body felt more relax and not in such a tense mode as it used to be. Bravo to the latest spa treatment technology brought in by the Hard Rock Hotel, Penang. My therapist, Vixin, also did a great job in rejuvenating my body with her gentle yet dedicated touches by the mode of hot volcanic stones. Not only were her steady flowing strokes pinpointed all the muscle sores on my body, she did put in the extra effort in soothing the sinus issues I had on that day. Thank Vixin, you are my savior. I would say those volcanic stones do have extraordinary therapeutic energies stored within. With right combination of heat and oil, I can feel that some of my sport related injuries got better and I’m now more energized with a better blood circulation. Moreover, with such a relaxing treatment, I’m now quite stress-free. Thumbs up! Another of their product which the therapist used on me was their Eye Pillow, a pillow filled with flax seeds with a light spray of their Lavender Essential Oil. For those who are suffering from sleep issues, it would be great if you could purchase the products from them. Not only was the freezer-chilled pillow soothed the lethargy eyes, the scent from the lavender oil relaxed my mind and pushed my mental and physical states towards Dreamland.

ROCKSPA04 photo ROCKSPA05_zpsibobrc8j.jpg

Overall, I had a great session at Rock Spa as my assigned therapist, Vixin, was skillful in her job and was tactfully knowledgeable in explaining all the processes in the treatment. If you were to ask me to recommend a spa treatment package, I will still choose the Heat Wave Rhythm & Motion Spa Treatment. Though it’s the most expensive package at RM390nett (1.5hours), it’s the most practical one to go for especially when you have gone through years of stressful life without ever finding time in rejuvenating your body to stay healthy for years to come.

Please call +604-886 8071 to make your reservation at least 4 hours prior to your appointment as Rock Spa would need adequate time to prepare to ensure your memorable spa experience. For more information on their other spa packages, you can check out their full spa menu as well as their current promotions with some great bargains.

The Rock Spa is located at the left wing of Hard Rock Hotel Penang. Upon entering, just head for the nearest car park on your left and then follow the left side of the building until the furthest end near the beach area. Alternatively, you can walk into the main entrance of the hotel and head towards the swimming pool area and then walk through a pathway of sands towards the left side of the premises. My advice would be using the former route to avoid getting pebbles of sands on your shoes.
