We have been on a strict diet since 21 September 2010 when 38 of us from the OBC-BU and 360 others from OBC Australia participated in the 8 week ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP Challenge. Part of the requirement was to photo-shoot and take a 9-points pre-challenge measurement on 26 September 2010, mid-point Photo & measurement on 24 October 2010 and again at the end of 8th week on 21 November 2010.

After the final measurement and photo-shoot, all contestants pictures and measurement will be posted for voting that will be open to all members of hooyah network to vote for best improved. If you have not join the Hooyah network, please do so now by clicking HERE... we need all the votes and support.

From now to the end of the 8 Week Challenge, we'll be posting the contestant's profile (with their permission) as an introduction as well as get to know your comrade campaign.

The first contestant is none other than our Alpha-Delta James Fong. James Fong, a Chartered Accountant is also an OBC-BU pioneer member. When James Fong and his inseparable partner Yam Chan SiuCheh first joined the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP, they slept in the car during office hours after the first session, being too exhausted. From that could-not-barely-move on first day session, James Fong is now a strong Delta with a big improvement in both benchmark assessment 1 and 2. During the November assessment, James Fong completed the first circuit in 8:06 minutes and the 1-mile run in 8:02. That was a big improvement from his first benchmark timing of 15:30 (circuit 1) and 13:00 (1 mile run).

James Fong's weight was 93kg on 26 September 2010 (see picture on left taken on 26 Sept)) and 185cm in height. After joining the Challenge, James Fong had lost 9 kilogram in weight during the mid-term measurement and 10cm in waistline.
On 24 October 2010, we had another photo-shoot for the half-challenge period and after 4 weeks, James Fong pants size too had reduced from 36 to size 34.

Being very consistent with the Inferno metabolic accelerator high intensive program, James too strictly follows Gunny Emily's Gladiator Diet. Once, we attended a function at the BSN Bank together and we were not even bothered with the kambing golek, satay and dozens of other yammilicious food...  ok.. i lied abit, of course we were tempted but we resisted even when Joannita Zaleha Yusof, BSN Bank Senior Vice-President and also a recruit at OBC-BU tried very hard to sabotage us. Joannita ended up serving us black coffee without sugar instead and that was all that we had without any food.

A 9kg weight lost and 10cm waist reduction within 4 weeks since the 8 Week Challenge was worth the effort. When asked, James Fong in his own words joined the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP @ Bandar Utama (OBC-BU) to have a sustainable health and weight regime and optimize his life expectancy and fulfillment. James Fong joined the 8 WEEK CHALLENGE because of the 'spirit and drive' by the OBC-BU team that continuously seduce recruits into healthier life and food style which a lot of us are either ignorant or neglecting... alamak.. sounds more like a sales campaign dy... that was my impression too but like what my good brother said, thats the truth!

but don't take my word for it, ask James Fong personally tonight at the Library, Ground floor, e-Curve (formerly known as Cineleisure-Curve) during the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP @ Bandar Utama October graduation party that starts at 7pm.

Until then....... Stay tune..

p/s- there is still another 4 weeks before the end of the Challenge. Whoever that had fell off the bandwagon and broke the diet.. or cheated the Inferno... don't worry!! Just hope back in and start on 2 days full ignition diet as adviced by Gunny Emily and you'll be up running for the RM15,000 again.. of course you have to compete with James Fong.

Looking for a reliable car workshop is not an easy feat in Malaysia. Many car workshops are known for overcharging and providing poor quality parts.
Image via Auto World Remember the last time you were overcharged for a repair? Yeah, me too.
The good news is you don't have to fret anymore! Car Bengkel, a local app set up in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), aims to help motorists survive this ultimate road challenge.
