True Fitness Ceased Operations, CHI Fitness Released Statement

I am very sure most of us (even if we are not True Fitness members), is still very much shocked by the news.

Are you one of the TF members?
Image credit
The abrupt drop of such devastating news to members is uncalled for and pretty much irresponsible - no prior announcement, no compensation, no nothing or whatsoever.... for the members, it's a very terrible situation to be in, especially for new sign ups!

This happened in Bangkok too, read it here and here. After reading a bit, the best line in the CNA report:

A True Fitness spokesman told TODAY newspaper that the closures would not affect its Singapore outlets nor its expansion plans in China.

I am not sure if I believe the last line. Definitely not.

Back to Malaysia, the story is involving...

A quick glance:

On 9 June, Fri, this is what on TF's website:

Dear Members, 
It is with deep regret that we announce the closure of our operations in Malaysia. All True Fitness and True Spa centres in Malaysia will cease operations on 10 June 2017.
Thanks to members like yourselves, we’ve been able to build a strong community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about wellness and health, and we value the support you’ve shown us. However, the past few years have proved challenging, and unfortunately the businesses are no longer financially viable due to evolving market conditions. 
We know many of you will be concerned about finding another fitness centre and have been working to find alternatives for you to continue your membership months and personal training sessions. Arrangements have been made with Chi Fitness for you to continue with your fitness regime with them. 
True Fitness members in Malaysia will have access to all Chi clubs except those located in Bangsar, Bangsar South (Nexus) and the Northern Clubs. Under the arrangement, True Fitness has purchased memberships for members to redeem and personal training sessions to be utilised at Chi Fitness. Redemptions can be completed online. We will be sharing further details on the mechanics for redemption at a later date. Redemptions at Chi Fitness centres will only commence on 3 July 2017. More details of this fitness provider can be found on their official website at chi-fitness.com. 
The validity of these redemptions for membership months and personal training will be for 24 months from 3 July 2017 or until all membership months and personal training sessions have been utilised. We are unable to refund in cash the unused portions of your membership months or personal training sessions. 
All terms of redemptions have been set by True Fitness Malaysia. We regret that Chi Fitness will not be able to facilitate service redemption queries. If you have any questions regarding this or any other matter, please contact our customer service at malaysia@truefitness.com.sg. Our customer service representatives will not be present at Chi Fitness. 
As for True Spa, we are looking for a reputable service provider to service your un-utilised sessions. We will be getting in touch with our affected members when we have more details. 
We apologise for any inconveniences caused as a result of the closure of the clubs and would like to thank you for your past support.
The Management of True Fitness & True Spa, Malaysia

And on 10 June, the website is updated with this announcement:


Like, seriously? Needless to say, all members is furious! One such member, Whitney who just signed up is now stuck in a limbo. Here's her screenshot with one of the consultant:


No automatic alt text available.
Screenshot from TF NEW customer (newly sign up), Whitney. This is indeed a "wash my hands clean" situation.

As of now, Whitney has yet to receive any news from TF team and she can't go any gym for now. Same for most of the TF members and the question remained: WHAT NOW?

To make things worse (or clearer), CHI Fitness released a statement on both FB and their website on 11 June.

As of 11am, there's 120 shares and members is venting on the comments.

True Fitness members are directed to reach out to TF via website.
Question: If you are CHI Fitness members, are you worried or concerned with the sudden announcement that True Fitness members gonna come over to your gym?

If you are True Spa members, the question is not answered at all, as they are still looking for reputable spa to take over - but will any reputable spa willing to take over the members and services? Will the members be happy with the new arrangements?

No one will know. I guess we all have to wait and see. As for the public, we all just want to know what actually happened!

My recommendation is to reach out to Malaysia's Consumers Tribunal for advise. Technically, you paid for the service, if it's not rendered or provided, you should be getting a refund. I am not sure on the exact details but I guess it's worth a try. You can log a report here. And if you would like to call them to ask some questions:

My advise? Call tribunal and ask if anything can be done... 
Meanwhile, if you would like to sign up with CHI Fitness, check out their FB and website. Alternatively, you can consider to sign up with a local gym that has full facility (except no swimming pool), one such gym is Work Out Studio in Kuchai Lama, check out their Facebook page here.

If there's any update, I will post updates on my FB page.

Beauty Beat | Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate gives you younger skin in 7 DAYS



Look your youngest in 7 days with the newly improved Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate that delivers visible anti-aging skin benefits in shorter time!




The wait for a fast-performing anti-aging beauty serum is over. The new and improved Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate is here! Housed in its signature red bottle, the elixir works diligently to speed up production of skin’s natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid levels to reveal visibly-younger skin in just 7 days!

Christine Law, Skincare Marketing Manager of Tohtonku Sdn. Bhd. provided the background to the newly-improved Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate. “When it comes to skincare, the modern Malaysian woman is well-informed about her choices. She’s smart, savvy and only wants solutions that give her real results. Equipped with consumer understanding and innovative science, Nutox has been providing her with effective skincare products that promise visible results,” she said.

In 2006, the company introduced Nutox’ now-bestselling anti-aging serum, Serum Concentrate. It quickly became a popular choice among women looking for an effective anti-aging solution to address skin concerns such as wrinkles, loss of elasticity and firmness.
The signature RED BOTTLE - get younger in just 7 DAYS!

“Interestingly, our consumer research has shown that a majority of Malaysian women do not take any preventive measures despite their desire to obtain wrinkle-free, firm-looking skin. They only start to take action when the signs of ageing become visible on their skin, leading them to have extremely high expectations when it comes to the efficacy of their skincare products,” said Law.

In line with this finding, Nutox has taken the initiative to develop its anti-aging skincare range even further, improving the products’ efficacy to deliver visible results within a shorter duration while retaining their affinity with the skin.

Explaining what’s new in the improved serum, Law said: “We enhanced the formula by incorporating a key technology known as Actigenic+, which allows users to notice an improvement in a week. Now, you can defy the signs of ageing and look your youngest in 7 days!

Infused with Bird’s Nest and enhanced with Actigenic+ Technology, Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate is formulated to dramatically reduce the effects of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. Harnessing the powers of Macro Algae and Indian Gentian Extracts, Actigenic+ is an epidermis regeneration system that significantly firms up the skin, resulting in a more youthful complexion.

How does Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate work?

1)   Restores & rejuvenate
This new and improved Advanced Serum Concentrate with Actigenic+ replenishes and reactivate the production of collagen and elastin in as early as 7 days.

2)   Lift, firm & smoothen
Skin is firmer and more lifted in just 7 days. With continued use, see even more improvements on the 14th and 28th day including smoothen skin texture and further visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

The results speak for themselves; 118 Malaysian women who have tried Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate agreed that they look younger in just 7 days!

98%* of women noticed lesser appearance of wrinkles and smaller pore size, while 97%* also said that their fine lines became less pronounced.

With Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate, skin texture becomes smoother, skin feels firmer and more lifted, the complexion is brighter and healthier-looking, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are visibly-reduced.



Nutox ambassador and international artiste, Nancy Wu shared her love for the newly-improved Advanced Serum Concentrate: “It’s no secret that I’m in my 30s, and while I am very comfortable with my age, I love what I do and I want to keep acting for as long as I can!



My job requires me to look good all the time, not just in front of the camera, but also in real life. Even without makeup on, I often bump into my fans who ask me for selfies, so having youthful, flawless skin is a must.”

She added: “I’ve always believed in the effectiveness of Nutox skincare products. Since I became Nutox’s ambassador in 2014, the brand has never let me down. With the new Advanced Serum Concentrate, my skin stays bright, smoother and lifted. That’s why I always have a bottle with me wherever I go, especially when I’m travelling or on location at shoots!”


For Nur Fazura, Nutox ambassador and international artiste, the new Advanced Serum Concentrate by Nutox has exceeded her expectations. “I was pleasantly surprised to notice that my skin is firmer, and my fine lines have lessened! It’s just unbelievable – I think I have never looked younger and in just 7 days!” she exclaimed.

“These days, when I look in the mirror every morning, I feel empowered because day after day, my skin continues to look better. I feel that over time, everything in my life is improving, including my complexion. Thank you Nutox for creating the Advanced Serum Concentrate; it’s an amazing product! I think every woman should definitely have a bottle at home or in her bag,” continued Fazura.

New & Improved Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate which is only RM79.90 for 30ml - which is pretty much a deal for me!

To look your youngest in 7 days, try Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate (RM79.90, 30ml), now available at all major pharmacies, supermarkets and hypermarkets nationwide. For more information, follow Nutox Malaysia on Facebook.

Emirates announced recently that it will go through a multi-million dollar cabin interiors upgrade programme includes an enhanced Onboard Lounge for its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft.

The new look of Emirates Onboard Lounge for its Airbus A380 aircraft!
Emirates is Skytrax’s World’s Best Airline 2016, will launch a series of new cabin products and enhancements in 2017 for both its A380 and Boeing 777 fleet. 

Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said:

The A380 Onboard Lounge is hugely popular with our customers, and has become an iconic feature of Emirates’ A380 offering.  Particularly on long-haul flights, our customers tell us they appreciate the opportunity to stretch their legs and mingle in the relaxed, yet classy lounge area.
Since we first launched the product in 2008, our A380 Onboard Lounge has gone through small but successive enhancements in line with customer feedback to increase the amount of space for our customers to interact in the lounge. In our latest revamp, we have taken inspiration from private yacht cabins, and amongst other thoughtful touches, we have increased the seating space, and also made it more intimate and conducive for our passengers to socialise or enjoy our lounge service.

The new Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge will make its first public appearance at the Emirates Infinite Possibilities stand during ITB Berlin, one of the world’s largest tourism trade fairs. It is currently being installed onto one of Emirates’ brand new A380 aircraft at Airbus’ facilities, and will make its operational debut in July 2017 (ah, my trip is in June......... I was hoping to be able to enjoy the new face lift but I heard the service is good nevertheless, I am excited as this is my first time flying with Emirates!)

Enhanced Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge Features



While retaining the trademark horseshoe-shaped bar, Emirates’ latest A380 Onboard Lounge will offer more seating space with a new seating arrangement along the windows on both sides of the bar. 

Inspired by private yacht cabins, each seating area will have a table and window view. Overall, the lounge can comfortably accommodate up to 26 passengers at a time, including 8 seated.

The new Onboard Lounge will also feature an airier look and feel. Lighter champagne colours will be used in the cabin and lounge seating, accented by a glossy dark wood trim.

Emirates will also introduce soundproof curtains to partition the Onboard Lounge area from the other cabins, put in additional soft ambient lighting options, new window blinds with integrated LED mood lighting, and subwoofers for surround sound. The lounge also features a 55 inch LCD screen so customers can view the latest flight information, or enjoy live TV broadcasts of the latest news or sports updates.

All of Emirates’ 93 A380s currently in service feature the Onboard Lounge. The enhanced lounge product will be similarly located on the upper deck of the aircraft, for First and Business Class passengers.

At the lounge, customers can enjoy gourmet canapés, handpicked wines from around the world and limited edition fine spirits, as well as signature cocktails prepared by the bartender.

Aside from the Onboard Lounge, the Emirates A380 is also renowned for its industry-leading First Class Private Suites and Shower Spas; luxurious lie-flat Business Class pods with personal mini-bars; spacious and quiet cabins; onboard Wi-Fi; and Emirates’ multi-award winning ‘ice’ Digital Widescreen with more than 2,500 channels of movies, TV programs, music and podcasts.

Check out the video here:



Emirates flies the A380 to 46 cities on 5 continents. It is the world’s largest operator of the A380 aircraft with 93 of these double-decked aircraft in service, and a further 49 on order.

Nicole Kidman is NEUTROGENA's NEW GLOBAL BRAND AMBASSADOR!!!

Breaking news! Hollywood luminary Nicole Kidman is NEUTROGENA® Global Brand Ambassador!!!

Nicole Kidman is the new NEUTROGENA® Brand Ambassador, joining the team of Rachael Taylor, Jennifer Garner, Kerry Washington, Julie Bowen, Kristen Bell, Eiza Gonzalez, Sandra Echeverria, Hayden Panettiere and Olivia Holt. 

Worldwide premium skincare brand NEUTROGENA® has recently announced Academy Award-winning actress, activist for women’s cancer research and Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, Nicole Kidman as its latest Global Brand Ambassador.

According to Cory Price, General Manager of NEUTROGENA® at Johnson & Johnson US, “Nicole embodies the true spirit of the women that we are committed to everyday. Their passion, strength and focus are what makes NEUTROGENA® women so special. Nicole will help us encourage women to embrace their beauty through the lens of skin health and empower women to see what’s possible with NEUTROGENA®.

In Malaysia, NEUTROGENA® is known for its wide array of skin health-focused products starting from cleansers, hydration serum and masks to sun protection lotions.

“We are pleased that a Hollywood big name like Nicole Kidman has become our global brand ambassador. Besides keeping the NEUTROGENA® brand top of mind when it comes to beauty, Nicole will serve as an aspiration for our local consumers who appreciate healthy and beautiful skin,” said Raghu Krishnan, Country Director, Consumer, Johnson & Johnson Malaysia.

Nicole Kidman, Australian actress and NEUTROGENA® Ambassador, comments:

“The world works in mysterious ways! As you probably know, I grew up in Australia where sun protection is everything – from the time I was a little girl, my mum taught me to protect my skin from the sun. So looking after the health of my skin is something I’ve grown up understanding. But as times passes, I’ve realised that, sun protection has become just part of the story…I’ve learned that your skin needs a lot of attention and support, just like the rest of your body in order to keep it its healthiest.” “So when I had the opportunity to partner with NEUTROGENA®, a brand that has skin health at the core of who they are, it was like the stars were aligning for me.” “Right now I can honestly say I am loving life more than ever, so my overall health, including the health of my skin is a top priority. Look, the reality is, we all know choosing the right anti-ageing product is trial and error, hit or miss, some things work and some don’t. But at this point in my life I am looking for something that simply works, that’s why I am really excited to join this passionate and dedicated team. I am also extremely proud to be joining a strong and inspiring group of NEUTROGENA® women who are already a part of the family.”

In January of 2006, Kidman was named, and continues to serve, as Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, whose goals are to foster women’s empowerment and gender equality, to raise awareness of the infringement on women’s human rights around the world and to end violence against women.

A post shared by Neutrogena (@neutrogena) on



She is also an activist in supporting research of women’s cancer. Along with her husband, Keith Urban, she helped raise nearly half a million dollars for the Women’s Cancer Program, a world-renowned centre for research into the causes, treatment, prevention, and eventual cure of women’s cancer.

Psssst, you want to steal her look? Wanna know how?




Presently, Kidman can be seen on the big screen in The Weinstein Company’s Lion for which she has received Critics’ Choice, Golden Globe, SAG Awards and Academy Award nominations. She will next be seen in the upcoming films How to Talk to Girls at Parties and The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.  On the small screen, Kidman returns to television this month in the limited series Big Little Lies for HBO as well as the second season of Top of The Lake (SundanceTV/BBC Two).

Club Med Cherating: Great Moments Begins HERE!

Just before I start, I just want to say, I first come to know Club Med from my mom.

Yes.... My MOM.

She loves to travel (in her younger days, of course) and I remember seeing her in swim suit (pretty sexy back then), asked her, where is this?

MOM: Club Med, at Cherating - best moment of my life! They have everything there, you just need: YOU and friends and pretty much all your loved ones!

Me: When is this?

MOM: Many years back, when I am young and hot. And.... (bla bla bla...)

Me: Ok, thanks mom.... (I am like.... this place can't be good, it's like.... old and probably rundown?)

But.... what lingers in my mind is... if my mom remembers it till now, it has to be good, yes? So when I got the opportunity to review this place my mom raved about, I took it - IMMEDIATELY.

I couldn't just go alone, right? Mom said bring friends or loved ones - since I get to bring another friend, well..... I invited my bestfriend, Tammy to go along. It's our very first trip together, IMAGINE THAT? We are so excited!

So, our first trip, to our very first CLUB MED! *MEDAL UNLOCKED - CLUB MED MEDAL*

We packed our bags, pump petrol and hit the road.... pretty long road, I have to say....but smooth drive, so it's ok!

We talked and laughed....

Until we saw this........

Oh yeah...... 
We pretty much quite excited and nervously anticipating to our arrival because we don't know what to expect.

What if.... it's really old and rundown? What if the activities is not as fun as what we see in website? Those what if questions kept running in our heads.

I worked in a hotel before, hence, I do have high expectations on hospitality and service. While Tammy, she is used to reviewing places and stays - so we kind of expect some kind of good great hospitality!

The moment we arrived, we are greeted by GOs (which is Gentils Organisateurs (GO) or kind organisers) and we are referred as GMs (which is Gentil Membres (GM) or kind members), we don't even have to carry our luggage - it will be sent to our room after check-in. I am like.... AWESOME!


Welcome drinks and COLD TOWEL - is a must!

Meanwhile, we just chill..... before checking-in.
Club Med really, truly want to be a true creator of happiness, where they invented a new form of shared experience and a unique style of holiday: which is all-inclusive holidays and resorts in the world’s most beautiful locations (Cherating Beach included, of course!) - this is where we all can recharge our "batteries" through contact with nature, sports and like-minded people! Best of all, you don't have to worry a thing - because the price you pay covers for everything! You just walk in and the fun begins!

For those who has yet to step into Club Med, here's a short video of Club Med Cherating, drone version:


First impression: It's CLEAN. Although, in my mind, it's a lot bigger but a room for two, this is a good size.

Bathroom is tidy and clean too. Amenities provided..... (I kind of forgot that this is ALL-IN holiday village!)
They have it all, including body lotion.


I actually did a bathroom check, really. It's clean - they must have scrub it hard.

When a woman sees mirror - one can stare and look at the mirror for.... hours. LOL! Tammy refreshing before we go for lunch!

The view from our room! Ah! Me likey...

So we tour around Club Med, looking for some activities to do during our stay here....

GMs Reception/Lobby area - neat and tidy. Oh, did I mention that the GOs are generally friendly and smiles a lot? I didn't quite noticed it on the first day but.... I realized that on the second day onward, the amount of smiles you get is.... overwhelming but delightful!

The pool area - for adults and a separate one for kids.

One of the highlights during our stay here! Tammy and myself enjoyed the spa here a lot, we actually went twice!

To be honest, Tammy and myself pretty much enjoy most of the activities here - despite we both enjoy different activities and our personality is different too... I doubted at first that we will both enjoy the same things, but Club Med surprisingly, caters to everyone! To us, it's not just a holiday, we took time off and bonded, we want to create our very own moments too! Here's some of the good GREAT moments we had....

When we.... turned the train to be.... unicorn-train!

Yes, we wanted to ride on unicorn - we turned the train into one!

And the train look perfect!
We look pretty satisfied with our new unicorn decor!

And we took the unicorn train to.... the Zen Pool + Beach area....


And then we had....

Archery! At first, it's just me, in the end, Tammy join in as well! GO Alan is our coach!

Damn, we had lots of fun! Nope, we don't always hit the target but we laughed so hard when we missed!

Archery is not really that hard....

We wanted more session but time's up!

Our GO: Alan is our COACH of the day for archery!

Other than unicorn, we.... well... had donuts with us, in case....
Speaking of donuts, reminds me of great FOOD we had.... (in large quantities and countless of wines!)

I have to present this first - my fave among all the food I had. This is Lamb Rack Provencal Style @ Mutiara Restaurant. It's tender and the mint sauce is perfect!

Tammy and myself wanted to book Rembulan for one of the night but it's all full - if you prefer a sit-down service, this is the one for you - advice: BOOK IN ADVANCE.

After a dip at the pool, we had lunch at the side of Rembulan...

There's different desserts every time we dine... another blog will be solely on food soon!

I love having a full, nutritious breakfast - and Club Med seems to think the same too. Although my selection seems simple, trust me, there's more selection, catering to everyone's need!


Most of the F&B outlets have wines - at the Noodle Bars, we have it with our noodles...

4 types of noodles and soups for you to choose from at the Noodle Bar! This is one of my fave + wine!

Egg Ramen in clear soup with shrimp and shredded chicken!

Sichuan Noodle with Minced Beef!
 
Most of the bar has good selection in each category! You will be spoilt with all the choices!
 


For our short stay there, we visited the ZEN pool everyday, because I love the Zen Pool, and here's why:


Great view at the pool - it's quiet and serene. I can see why they named it ZEN POOL.

Time seems to kind of slow down at the pool. This is why we are here, to rejuvenate our souls and to bring nature closer to us. 
 
And to make the stay a little more perfect, have a cup of coffee (or more!) while enjoying the beach view, from your very own shade!

It is so relaxing that while taking pic, my dear Tammy fell asleep!

I mean, with such view + soft, gentle wind blowing on your face, anyone will eventually fell asleep (myself included!)

And it's CHERATING BEACH, you can't just forget about the BEACH, kan? And remember the unicorn? Yupe, unicorn right at the beach....

For the fun of it, I had to.

And then there's more....

And yes, a wefie with our unicorn, A MUST!
And of all the activities we had, one stood out.

I don't think every resort or hotel will have this. One of its kind activity that I get to do in Club Med (which really surprised me is....)

My very first trapeze!

In my mind, I felt crazy for doing this!

And you gotta train before going up the real trapeze! I am not sure if I actually can.... 

At the training, apparently, I can. LOL! I CAN DO IT! I am just not sure if I can do the real thing...

THE ACTUAL TRAPEZE: 


First attempt: Totally failed.
Second attempt: *Can I just get down? LOL!*
Third attempt: I gotta do this! And I did.
I am glad I did it and super happy to nailed it! PHEW!
This pretty much sum up my trip with my best friend, Tammy! We enjoyed our stay there and we had great moments (surprisingly, more than I have imagined!), and of course, the GOs made us feel at home!

Question is, will I be back?

Yes.
