Ok... First, I'll do the 20 grunts for forgetting to announce the winning Reds in the last blog. Yes, the Reds (ie Chief's instructors in Malaysia) too went through the same phase of lifestyle transformation together with their recruits during the Eight Weeks to Wow challenge but since they were by default disqualified from competing for the RM15,000 grand prize, COBC ran our own challenge among the instructors and the four shortlisted for Finals are as follows:

There are 12 instructors at the Chief's Original Bootcamp, Malaysia network with only 1 female instructor. At the Chief's Original Bootcamp Malaysia, we believe in preaching whatever is spoken and in walking the talk. Whatever that is being trained at the bootcamp, our instructors go through the same training and products. To unleashed our recruit's best physique, our instructors too unleashed theirs. Together, we walk in the corridors of hot bods & health.

There will only be 1 winner among the instructors and the winner will get a New Balance Voucher worth RM ehem ehem... 

Instructors that were voted into finals are....

Just when we thought the 8 Weeks Challenge fever has ended and was a little disappointed that there is no local winners for each battalion, COBC again... came out with a big surprise. We always save the best for last. Yes, we are pleased to announced the local winner for Ampang, Bandar Utama, Cyberjaya, Damansara Heights, Subang Jaya and Penang below. The winners will receive RM1,000 worth of New Balance voucher and a month of bootcamp complimentary. 

There were a few factors that was considered in selecting the winner. Foremost is their effort, dedication & commitment to lose weight (according to their instructors) and their super spirit in motivating and preaching their result on facebook. Yes, we acknowledged the power of preaching and walking the talk. Result is certainly the best tools of influence and we want more people to walk in the corridors of head turning hot bods... and superb health. 

In the same spirit and in this season of 8 Weeks Challenge, COBC took a step further in getting all our instructors to walk their talk by participating in the challenge and we will be announcing too the winner among Chief's instructors in Malaysia.

Cheerful picture of Adibah Mohamad in cap and spectacles
Platoon versus Platoon Season 3 is scheduled to be held on 18 January 2013 and will be organised in memory of Adibah Mohamad whom was our pioneer recruit that had attended the first battle and came to support us on our second platoon challenge while recovering from her surgery for breast cancer but she passed away shortly after the event. Adibah was our comrade at Bandar Utama Alpha and we are truely saddens by her demise. Adibah was truly an amazing women and a true inspiration to many. Please take a moment to read about Adibah at HERE.

What is the Platoon Versus Platoon? To avoid any confusion, Platoon versus Platoon is actually a Battalion versus Batalion. Traditionally in Australia, it was a platoon competing with another platoon but in Malaysia we merge all platoons at a location (battalion) and goes to war with another location (Battalion). This was organized to determine which platoon is the strongest in a friendly, enjoyable and slightly competitive way. It was also organized to enable recruit to meet with recruits at other locations and thus, broadening the networking of bootcampers. The first battle in Malaysia was organised in 2010 (For more information, read HERE) when COBC was under a different licensee. We took over the license the year after and organized the first battle in 2011 which you can read more at HERE. The second battle took place in 2012 and the details of which is available at HERE.

The winning platoon will have its platoon's name inscribed on the trophy. The first year saw Damansara Heights Highlanders as the Champion. Second year, Bandar Utama Spartans took the baton and was crowned as the Champion.

For the battle, all platoons at a location is merged as follows:

a) The merger of BU Alpha, BU Bravo and BU Dusk platoons as Bandar Utama Spartans.
b) The merger of DH Zulu and DH Charlie as Damansara Heights Highlanders. 
c) The merger of USJ1 Charlie and USJ1 Dusk as the Subang jaya Legends. 
d) The merger of Penang Alpha, Charlie and Zulu as one batallion.
d) Ampang
e) Cyberjaya 


When it is time to workout, we trained!! When it is time to work, we worked!! When it is time to run, we run!!! When it is time to sleep, we sleep!! When it is time to party... We party like there is no tomorrow!! If there is one trait that is common with recruits at the Chief's Original Bootcamp, we all learn to live life to the fullest.

The theme for the party was Halloween!! In conjunction with the party theme and as a countdown to the anniversary gatherings, we launched our 'training in theme' at all platoon to further excite the already hype program. The training in theme too would loosen up any barriers or walls between recruits in the spirit of camaraderie and of course, it would break the monotony of working out routine.
While the first Anniversary party theme was Superheroes that was attended by Superman, Batman, Ironman, Catwomen, Supergirl, Gorgeous girl yada yada... (See HERE for pictures) and the second Anniversary was Uniform and all the Generals, Hitler, Nurses, french maids and various fantasy-came-into-life dress wear (See HERE for pictures); the 3rd year anniversary theme was Halloween!! We figured, it was time for recruit to over-powered and be more scary than the instructors and we were right!! The instructors were so mild as compared to the scary recruits (good thing, they did not bully the instructors).

The Chief's Original Bootcamp celebrated its 3rd year anniversary at the Bravo Italiano Restaurant and Bistro in Damansara Perdana yesterday. I admit, it can be challenging recognizing recruits without their Grey training tee but to recognise them all looking sexily frightening was errr.. horrifying!


I passed by this restaurant almost everyday since it was open less than a year ago but we never stop by and dine until one day when we were exhausted of places to dine. We decided to give it a try. The restaurant is located at Damansara perdana and if you are coming from LDP or Penchala Link into Damansara Perdana, you can see the restaurant on the left hand side at the first traffic light.

The full address is at C-G-3A, Ritze Perdana 2,
Jalan PJU 8/1 Damansara Perdana,
Petaling Jaya, selangor

The restaurant has a good ambiance and relatively fast service with friendly and all smiley waiter and waitresses which is important to me. What is more important, the food taste better than the photos displayed. The price...? very reasonable!!

My favourite and a must have at every visit, is the mushroom soup!! Yes!! This is a must have before any meal. It only cost RM9.00 per big bowl. Secondly, the ceaser salad!! The portion, the salad dressing, cheese and beef bacon was literally a perfect salad to have.

I have been to the restaurant abit too frequent that I had most of the main menu including the kambing golek (yes, they roast lamb fresh on certain evenings). All the main menu especially the lasagna and the wide choices of spaghetti are all reasonably priced and are tasty.

Naturally, I brought along the core team member at the Chief's Original Bootcamp and this place was chosen as the next venue for the COBC Anniversary and party which will be held tomorrow, 10 November 2013 at 6pm.

Counting down closer to the Chief's Original Bootcamp 3rd year Anniversary celebration which will be held on 10 November 2013 at the Bravo Italianese in Damansara Perdana, we launched the inaugural training in the same Halloween theme at all platoon. Why Halloween theme? Well, why not? We have done more than 30 themes throughout COBC parties and dressing up in scary outfit seemed to be a good choice.  It was amazing to see the creativity and sportsmanship in COBC recruit whom attended the session and trained in fear.. I mean in style.

We had previously blogged the training in theme at other platoon namely for Bandar Utama Alpha, Bandar Utama Dusk, Ampang Dusk, Subang Jaya USJ1 and Cyberjaya Dusk (click on name to view).

To add up to the excitement, there will be consolation prize for the best dressed platoon. Guess who will be the winner? 


Cyberjaya platoon is one of the best training ground with complete facility which includes clean toilets and shower area. When COBC announced the theme for training as Halloween,  this was probably the only platoon with the whole recruit looking sweet and charming instead of horror and frightening. Well.. who says hantus needed to be scary.


The Chief's Original Bootcamp had the privilege to train 200 Citibank officers in a 90 minutes bootcamp challenge which took place at the Damansara Heights Community Centre on 7 November 2013. The event was honored by the presence of its Chief Executive Officer, Sanjeev Nanavati in a prize giving ceremony for the champion of the challenge. Sanjeev whom was appointed as the CEO in 2007 believes the success of Citibank falls in a strong team and this was proven with the challenge held today. The participants that was divided into 50 teams of 4 pax displayed a strong spirit of team work and was endlessly inspiring their team mate to win. When their teammate fallback, they motivate and supported them to never give up.

After a few challenges, when there is only one champion, all of them congratulated each other in a good sportsmanship spirit.

The Chief's Original Bootcamp would like to thank Citibank and the organiser for the opportunity to host the Bootcamp Challenge 2013. Below are some snapshots at the inaugural event before the sunset when its too dark for photoshoot.


It is amazing how sporting, fun and creative recruits at the Chief's Original Bootcamp (COBC) can be. It is equally awesome to see the effort made by instructors to make sure their recruits are having a stupendous moment working out and achieving the desired result.

If there was an award to be given for the scariest instructors at all platoon in conjunction with the training theme, then I am sure it will go to Corporal Azmir and Lance Corporal Lian at the Ampang Dusk Platoon.

To foster the training theme, Corporal Azmir did not just dressed-up according to theme but he issued out various war cries to all recruits in his platoon. He also prepared Halloween Props and brought along treats to get the energy flowing.


What do you think will happen when the Chief's Original Bootcamp announced the workout theme to be a Halloween?!! Yes... it's true... all Hell breaks loose!! It does not matter whether it is a small platoon or a big one but the spirit of camaraderie brought out the err.. ugliest side of everyone. Everyone is so full of energy and needless to say... fun, exciting and creative!! Working out can never be more fun with these breed of bootcamp recruit.

Bandar Utama Dusk seemed to be the most dramatic. While there were a mixture of various hantu-mix from pontianaks to modern toyol, at BU Dusk, there seemed to be a family of the same breed of hantu!! and there were also some exciting pose ala theatre!!


Well, it was not literally a nightmare but when the Chief's Original Bootcamp announced a Halloween as a workout theme for all platoons in Malaysia, we discovered there is the ugly side of everyone. Bandar Utama Alpha was the first platoon of the day that started the ball rolling with a few Pontianaks spotted at Bandar Utama Community Centre. In Subang Jaya USJ1 base camp, the resident had their nightmares when its neighbourhood experience the presence of an indescribable scene.

The platoon went on without their hardcore Marie How, Andy Wong, Fadzlie and Mee Leng whom were on vacation but rumor has it, Sylvia Quah became the mastermind who brought out the dark side of everyone. Even without being in Malaysia, Marie How send in 3 bootcamp-virgin recruits namely Everista, Tey Bee Ting and Lee Cindy to be slaughtered the platoon. I dont want to imagine their first day in hantu-theme but Iskandar was immediately excited... "Fresh Blood!!". Fadzlie whom was prepared to be a Freddy Kruger could not make it and Catherine Kok whom was all ready, could not decide what to be?!. All went well although some of the hantus were more adorable than scary.


When it was announced the the unprecedented Halloween workout at the Chief's Original Bootcamp, we had no expectation how scary it can be until we arrived at the Bandar Utama Alpha base camp... I was shocked to see... err myself!! I woke up a... hantu!!! and I never knew I can be that ugly!!

But it was even more scary to see a Pontianak at 5am on a football field!!! Eeekk..

Not one but two!!


Get all dress up in Zombie, Frankenstein, Pontianak, Dracula, Toyol or whichever hantu of your choice and workout in err... hantu-style!! "Free Gifts" will be awarded to the platoon with the most and best dressed hantu at the Anniversary party.

Be in a mask, face-paint, wig, head gear, arms, legs all can change but must be in Grey Tee. This is an unprecedented training theme to excite and add some spice to an already hot workout program.

 This theme is in conjunction with the theme of the Chief's Original Bootcamp 3rd year anniversary party on 10th November 2013.

The owners and admins of the Chief's Original Bootcamp, Malaysia has scheduled Monday, 4th November and 5th November (depending on location) as a Halloween workout!!
