I left straight to KLIA for an official trip to Cambodia after a night stay at the Sepang Goldcoast on Tuesday 7 December 2010 last week and returned on Saturday 11 December 2010 and left straight to Ipoh to run 12km on 12. 12 at the Roadrunners Ipoh Tangjung Rambutan race. Came back on Sunday 12 December 2010 but received a call on 13 December 2010 to be at Singapore for the Biggest Loser Asia finale at 9am on 14 December. On 15 December 2010, I have to attend the soft launching of the new face-lifted sexy Proton Saga at the PROTON Centre of Excellent. Such is December, year end schedule but what made it all so interesting... was the fact that those activities were my passion... Business, politics, health and exercise ... is what life is all about.
Still exhausted from the endless travelling from Sepang GC, Cambodia, KL, Ipoh KL etc... we arrived in Singapore at 1am having left Kuala Lumpur at 8pm... okay.. we got lost abit in little Singapore and took a longer time. My navigator Sarge Dann was happily asleep.
After some clarification with Zai Johari, the producer... we were invited as the Guest having participated as the trainer for their episode. Being there was a good platform for networking, to experience and feel that powerful emotion from contestants was indescribable but I was abit disappointed.. I wanted to train the contestant the OBC-BU style.. I wanted them to feel our program and experience the BANDAR UTAMA energy... well.. maybe next season.. *wink.

When I saw Viveganandam Deveraj @ Raj new look... I thought of James Fong after our very own OBC 8 Week Challenge... err.. not that James Fong lost as much but the new look.. lean, slim and mean.... Woww!!!
When I saw Scott Hana, I thought of Adriano Abila.. dont ask me why!! but Adriano Abila's will power was strong.. as strong as Scott Hana's will power!! Adriano is our Super Delta. Similarly when I saw Atikom Laksanapanai @ Nai.. I thought of Adibah Mohamad.. not that they are of the same gender, but how Adibah Mohamad shrunk after the OBC 8 Week Challenge was as inspiring as Nai but when they flash-back Nai's training and the way Nai joked and screamed.. that was very similar to Syed Mahadzir & Raja Affandi Raja Jamaluddin.
When Norhafiza Mohammad @ Fish came out from the crowd.. and she became so 'THIN' as in.... thin!!! .... I quickly thought of Shear Ling Toh and Afiza Mohamad but when Desiree M Vinoya make her appearance... my first thought was T'yng Yng Tan... T'ng Yng Tan lost alot of weight and fat during the 8 weeks challenge.
The energy felt in the studio was so overwhelming.. That energy, emotion and kiasu-ness.... was exactly how I feel when we were training at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP @ Bandar Utama & USJ1 with our fellow comrades.
The last minute notification.. the 200km/hr drive along the PLUS highway to Singapore was well worth it... Thank you Zai Johari for the opportunity to share the unforgettable moment with the Biggest Loser Asia contestants.
Congratulation to Raj.. Desiree and all contestants at the BIGGEST LOSER ASIA.. you are all the King of Champions!!!!
