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.

ANLENEMOVEMAX04 photo ANLENEMOVEMAX04_zps61kdcj6n.jpg

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.

ANLENEMOVEMAX05 photo ANLENEMOVEMAX05_zpsxjm83ye0.jpg

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.

ALTERNATIVE CONNECTIONS

Though it’s highly recommended for those owning HDTV to purchase the 1OTT player for clarity, it does not mean that you can’t watch using other mode of display. For those still owning the older box type of TV, you can still use the product by purchasing the HDMI-Composite Breakout Cable. As for those without any TV but with PC monitor or laptop, you can still use the player if the unit is of higher range with a DVI-D (dual link) slot or HDMI slot with the purchase of a HDMI-DVI/HDMI-HDMI Cable. If you are using the DVI-HDMI cable for visual, then you’ll need to plug in the external speakers into the composite slot on the player for audio. However, you would still need to have a minimum of 2Mbps internet connection to view most of the Video-On-Demand (VOD). In case you are unsure of how those slots will look like, I have attached a photo below.

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCES

Let me share with you my experiences on some of the channels I’ve gained access to during my review on the product. Wow! I’m impressed with the quality and quantity of online entertainments which I can stream at ease with this product. On top of that, there are so many series and movies that I had missed out in the recent months and I could just watch them all at my convenience through their ever updated and comprehensive listing. The best part is that I can use the Resume Playback, Fast Forward & Rewind features without missing the action parts of the show, unlike viewing through certain paid channels.

1OTT09 photo 1OTT09_zpss2nojkiw.jpg

Firstly, let’s have a look at the LIVE TV channels such as the Malaysian 1TV. There are all together 18 channels namely TV1, TV2, Bernama and more.

TV05 photo TV05_zpsmgqmprma.jpg

For those who love watching English movies, you are in luck to catch up with the movies that you have missed. Just click the “English Movies” icon and it would lead you into another page. This is where the fun part is. The first 5 icons are where you could watch more movies within based on their category. If you take a closer look at the top right hand corner, you would notice that there’s a counter to show you the quantity of movies available. With 100+ latest movies available, it would take me months before I could finish all. By that time, there would be more updated ones. That’s what I like about the 1OTT Social TV – endless entertainment!

TV01 photo TV01_zpsxa5wx8bz.jpg

TV07 photo TV07_zpsaskszoxe.jpg

As for the “English Series”, it’s also another category with almost a hundred series to view on, not amounting to the number of titles you would get to view in each of the series. OMG! That’s another few hundreds of titles to catch on.

For those who love to watch “Malaysian Dramas and Movies”, you are in luck too as there would be quite a number of interesting shows that you have missed. Currently, there are 24 movies and 35 dramas in these categories. I felled in love with the acting of Nur Suhada binti Jebat (commercial name Ayda Jebat), an actress cum singer. In the drama, M.A.I.D., she was so natural and comical, especially when she was in panicking situations.

TV09 photo TV09_zpsvdvg70ul.jpg

TV12 photo TV12_zpsjwdyski9.jpg

I quite like these titles as I’ve learned some interesting tips to boost up my immune system as well as maintaining a general wellbeing.

TV13 photo TV13_zps0lwfndvo.jpg

1OTT Social TV player is not short of Documentaries too. It indeed had widened my knowledge on a lot of aspects in life, especially in the culture, tradition, history and science of other nationalities.

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

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.

MAKEOVER CHOICES AT JEFFERSON AND JS FASHION SQUARE AT PRANGIN MALL PENANG

For those who had frequent Penang’s Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak (KOMTAR) in the late 80’s (1987), you would have come across a humble little shop by the name of Jefferson Fashion Design. The shop was the in-trend during that era where endless streams of customers from the young as well as companies would seek them for their great cuts and quality custom-tailoring. I was also one of their patrons during that time, seeking the best customized formal wears during that period of time. Today, after almost 3 decades, the name JEFFERSON still stays strong amongst the old and the young in the fashion industry. Ever since the conversion from custom-tailoring to ready-to-wear concept since 2006, the brand JEFFERSON had expanded to 11 outlets nationwide (West & East Malaysia) and a subsidiary for women wear at JS Fashion Square, Prangin Mall, Penang. Not only will the men would be pampered with latest choice of apparels and accessories, the women too would almost get to have their own makeovers with the availability of state-of-the-art apparels ranging from casual, formal, sporty and evening wears. Of course, they won’t be shot of accessories for both the masculine and feminine sides of each individual.

So, what can you get from each of the JEFFERSON outlets? Nevertheless, each outlet is the one-stop makeover venue for the guys, with items ranging from formal shirt, slacks, dinner jackets, coats, bermudas, polo-T, jeans, T-shirts, refined bags, belts, head gears, and various other accessories to complete the masterpiece in you. Don’t be a bore with your usual fashion style and get a fashion makeover with the abundance choice of apparels available at JEFFERSON.
