OBC-BU: OCT2/12- THE BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT!!

The benchmark assessment is usually done on the first session of every month but it was defer when more than 20 recruits from OBC-BU participated in the Newton Race the day before. The benchmark assessment was then conducted today on the second session of the month. What we do at the benchmark assessment can be view HERE.


Today also marked the third day of our 8-Week Challenge. Thusfar, Gunny Emily's Gladiator diet did not starved but instead built up our appetite with a whole list of mouth watering food and delicacies. In fact, we actually ate more than our usual three times a day meal which reiterate Gunny Emily's methodology that dieting is all about eating right and not starvation!! If you do not believe... Stay tune until the 8th week!! As of the 3rd day, three of our recruits namely Rose Emini Pahamin, Balqis and Lilian Lee had lost more than 2kgs.. OBC-BU biggest loser in this three days is Balqis. The average weight lost so far from the participating recruits at OBC-BU …

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 12/12: RUN FOREST RUN

.

Thats it..... the end of September OBC-BU session. Today was the 12th, the last session of the month and my 4th day being ciggie-free. Noticeable differences on Day-4...? It feels good to be lunch-ing in an air-condition restaurant instead of the no-aircond smoking section and my comrade John Chuah suddenly disappeared from training!??? I mean.. since I stop smoking, John Chuah stop exercising??? Maybe he freak out and felt pressure to divorce his faithful affair with Ms Ciggie. Maybe John Chuah is accumulating FAT and stop exercising to gain as much fat for the Sunday pre-challenge PHOTO-SHOOT... So many maybe's...

So far the bandwagon still maintain 6 smoke-free passengers without any dropout. Not many dare to take the challenge to stop smoking but we have more passengers who took up the OBC 8-Week challenge to win RM15,000!!

In preparation for the NEWTON 25KM race this coming Sunday, Sarge Dann prepared a cardio workout as a closure for the month.

DAY 3: SMOKE-FREE BANDWAGON

.
Picture on left is my cousin Eddie Putera Noordin.. he is the President of SMOKERS CLUB and I 'was' a lifetime honorary deputy!! Although his Smokers Club membership is still growing... the Smokers Club is now deprived of 6 members.

The infant smoke-free bandwagon now comprised of 6 passengers..... Azhar Sulaiman, Kamsani Ahmad, Joe Liew Law Yoong, Zaiem Razak and Shear Ling Toh (and me). Day 3 feels abit agitated with surroundings but Munch-the-Kuaci-advice worked and soon Kuaci (sunflower seed) will be scarce in Kuala Lumpur... Joe Liew had already clean sweep the Kuaci supplies in Cheras.

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 11/12: *FAINT*

THE END OF 20 YEARS RELATIONSHIP

.

It was during the third semester break in 1988 when we first befriended her.  We were fourteen years old and was in Form 2 at Bukit Bintang (Boys) Secondary School. We tasted her together... Zarir Salleh, Syamreen Azam Shafei and me at Zarir's house in Taman Tun Dr Ismail 22 years ago. That was how it started... that was how we all became Smokers. The habit worsen with almost 3 packs a day now. Two years ago, I even blog about my inseparable relationship with Cigarette at HERE.

Exactly a year ago, my brother Mohammed Rhiza Ghazi too had divorced his Red Malborough. My driver, Sanwan had quit smoking. Cousin Noor Ervin Shahriz Noordin, friends Suanie T, Cynthia Gan, Shobha Bala to name a few had ended their relationship with Ciggie.

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 10/12: HUNDRED MADNESS

.

I know... need to control the diet but I lost control at Dato Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Tahir, PROTON Managing Director's house when the main menu was Kambing Golek (Grill Lamb)!!! I mean.. its Kambing Golek!!!! as in Kambing Golek!!! yaa. the diet went tergolek...



We also had the chance to celebrate the raya with YABhg Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad whom at 85 years old is still standing very strong!!

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 9/12 BRING-A-FRIEND DAY

.

We all have friends.. I mean who doesn't, but how much do we care about the friends to actually get them involved in a healthy socio-fitness activity? Yes.. we care alot and hence the monthly Bring-A-Friend day every 3rd Friday of the month. Bring-A-Friend Day or BAF Day is the first step or rather a sneak preview of a better healthier lifestyle and... of course healthier circle of friends. Being in a circle of people that share a similar passion for sexier lifestyle will assure an improved consistency in training.

Of course, one of the first few to arrived is non other than our 'mascot'.. the famous torn pants Yam Chan Siucheh...

Although waking up in an ungodly hour needed a little extra effort, there were more than a dozen friend that arrived as early as 5:30am. Amongst them was Aisan Lim, whom trained with me for almost 10 months at KLA but went MIA due to work pressure that forced her to run and cycle at the Gym instead. We also welcome Tan Lay Cheng (LC) from the ci…

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 8/12 GRUNTS 110

.
Food, food, food.... guilty as charge!! especially during the Hari Raya but fortunate for us, we have Sarge Dann to make sure those food did not turn to fat. Sarge Dann woke us up this morning with 100 Grunts!!! No it was not for punishment but he knew someOne ate a little too much last night.... and No we could not cheat because it was prescribed in 10 installments with barely 5 seconds rest in between. If only the installment could be extended to a few days (wishful thinking!)...

Since it is Hari Raya, Sarge Dann gave a discount angpaw....  Ranger was given 40% discount and did 6 repetitions of 10 sets, Seal had 20% discount with 8 repetitions @ 10 sets but Delta.. no discount 10 repetitions for 10 sets!

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 7/12 THE SPARTAN

We fought our way through to better health and fitness the Spartacus way today!! or thats how it felt like being high on adrenaline.

There were no late comers and although we had a few dozen recruits at Alpha but there were no sign of Otai Joe Liew, Kenix Lim and leesa Tan. Maybe they were still busy celebrating Hari Raya. Our session began with a partner base Fire and Movement circuit that require Partner-A to run 5 step forward, dropped chest down while Partner-B run towards partner A and dropped chest down too and so forth. The Fire and Movement circuit is a mock military section assault where one soldier move forward while the other partner on standby to shoot. We did four laps of Fire & Movement from one football goal post to the other goal post. The intensity was increased on the third lap where we had to dropped chest down at every three steps instead of five.

SKETSA AT FIRST DAY RAYA

There were only thrice in my 36 years that the Hari Raya was celebrated without the parent. Twice during the undergraduate years and today. This year Hari Raya was different when father had to be in California, United State of America and mother in London with Dr Teratai Edithy Pahamin, Shazrul Azwa Asaari & Rose Emini Pahamin.

In their absent, Chempaka Emalin Pahamin & Azhar Sulaiman played host on Hari Raya morning to the leftover of the Pahamins at Bustanu. Mum would be proud to know that Chempaka Emalin Pahamin did a good job. After the Hari Raya prayer, we all gathered at Chempaka's house for FOOD!! and there were varieties for everybody...


ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 6/12 SELAMAT HARI RAYA

.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri... there is no better way than to start the EID MUBARAK morning with a jolly good fat burning, ass tightening, stomach crunching, heart throbbing exercise.. and that's exactly how ours started!!

Yes.. ONLY at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP @ Bandar Utama!!! No.. exercise knows no holiday and knew no break even on Hari Raya or Chinese New Year.... RAIN, HAIL OR SHINE!!!..

That is the commitment at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP and that is the commitment of our super kiasu, hyper & energetic Sarge Dann. Sarge Dann sacrificed his first day of Hari Raya commanding Alpha, Bravo and Zulu. He prepared the training field all by himself with the tyres & ropes as part of the training equipments for the well-prepared circuit picked from Chief Brabon's mentoring program.

WHEN LIFE TURNS 'SWEETER'..

.

Life turn sweeter as we get older and mine turned sweet'est with a 25mmol/l glucose count over the weekend and it was not a pleasant experience.

It has been almost 10 years since I had Diabetic type 2 and has been on 850mg metformin (glucophage) twice a day and 30mg Diamicron MR (Gliclazide). When I changed my lifestyle into a super active outdoor person and adopted the Blood type diet, I self-revised the dosage of my medication to 850mg metmorfin once a day and stopped the Diamicron MR. When I went on mega-active activities with recent half marathon and Mt Kinabalu climb, I did not replenished my supplies of medication thinking the mega active lifestyle would self-regulate the sugar level.... very clever of self-proclaimed doctorate Dr Armin Baniaz.

The diabetic has been quite friendly since diagnosis except for a few hypoglycemic moments which over the years, I had learn to recognize the symptoms. The symptoms of hypoglycemic or low blood sugar that I found very pronounced in …

DO NOT BUY TAG HEUER SPECTACLES

I bought my first Tag Heuer eye-wear model TRACK FTH 7201-004 when my eye was infected with bad infection, at the OPTICAL 88 located at the Curve Mutiara Damansara on 22 December 2008 (Invoice No: RSML 09-6862. Since then, I brought and bought the same brand for Nawal Aini Zulkifli and Rose Emini Pahamin as well as recommended a few other friends to the same shop, OPTICAL 88.

What was never made known at the point of purchase was the damn expensive TAG HEUER spec was easily broken and it takes too long to claim warranty. If this were to be PROTON, it would have been on the front page of every newspaper.

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 3/12

3 SEPTEMBER 2010. If there was a moment when Sarge Dann was hyper and mega active.. it must be today!! The Australian must have brainwashed him during the Hell Week and he came back... ever increasingly super duper hyper active...

..and if there was a day that is the hottest day while training, it must be today too. The heat from the sun at 6:15pm was unprecedented, we felt as if we were training in the hot afternoon.

The combination of a super mad hyper Sergeant and a boiling hot day.... was gila babi crazy letih nak mampus (hard to translate) very fun and exciting.

ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA: OBC-BU SEPT 2/12

.


1 September 2010. What can you expect to get from a Sarge that had just graduated from Hell Week? ...HELL!! plain and simple. How else to burn the extra calories if not through sheer hell?

As I arrived at ZULU, everybody were doing Grunts... I learned a shortwhile later that the Grunts was compliment from the King.. Jun King for being late. He figured, we could all do with extra workout.


PROTON LATEST PROMOTION... ONLY IN SEPTEMBER

1 SEPTEMBER 2010... PROTON EDAR had announced its latest promotion for September!!! The promotion was announced in-conjunction with the Independence Day and the Aidil Fitri promotion... up to RM3,500 on certain selected model.

Err I mean... over and above the earlier announced 20 years Anni, Aidil Fitri and Independance day promotion.

For full detail.. browse here; to book click here.

COUNTDOWN TO HARI RAYA...

.
Its 9 days to go before the Aidil Fitri festival.. and there are more than 60 cars to be delivered at Proton Edar Putrajaya alone.. Throughout Malaysia.. I would expect nothing less than at least 5,000 vehicles. Can we deliver those cars?

Last month in August, Selangor had a shorter month to register customer's vehicles with the Nuzul Quran and the Merdeka day celebration. The last day in August itself, there were data transfer issues between the Road Transport Department (JPJ) and Custom online that prohibited the registration of chassis. Despite that, PROTON was able to achieve its monthly target.

PROTON ICT Service Desk are on standby to mitigate any affected chassis from registration. PROTON finance department are also working and open even on weekend to expedite any payment for CBU & excise and the central hub are on a 24 hours shift to deliver customer's vehicles to promptly deliver customers' car before the festive season.
