BEATING THE ODDS AND THE BIG 'C'

(THE STAR, 18 NOVEMBER 2012) 

KUALA LUMPUR: Being diagnosed with bone marrow cancer with only three years to live was not the end for businessman Armin Baniaz Pahamin, 38, but the beginning of a new experience in life.
Armin, who was diagnosed at the age of 15, is today the owner of the Chief Original Bootcamp (COBC) programme, which promotes a healthy lifestyle.
“I was given three years to live by doctors and my parents were devastated to hear the news.
“I refused to give up and instead joined fitness programmes and stayed healthy despite my condition,” he said yesterday.
While spending time in the gym, cycling and mountain climbing, Armin realised that he needed something more to stay motivated.
This led him to becoming a recruit of COBC in 2010 and he bought over the business a year later with his partner and fellow cancer survivor Dr Malek Aziz.
COBC is a military-style fitness programme designed by Jim (aka Chief) and Emily Brabon in Aus-tralia.
“I want to share my experiences, especially with youth, and show them that anything is possible if you put your mind to it,” he said.
Over 5,000 people have signed up for seven COBC camps in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
“I am proud that three of my recruits were voted finalists in the International 8 Week Challenge 2012 held here recently,” he said.
The public can also participate in COBC's Free Try-Out (FTO) Day at Ampang, Bandar Utama, Cyberjaya, Damansara Heights, Subang Jaya USJ1, Shah Alam and Penang.

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.

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.
