At the Pinnacle of Real Estate

KENNY TEOH
Managing Director of Hectarworld Group

Bold. Focus. No nonsense. Always thinking out of the box. These are common descriptions of Kenny Teoh, founder and managing director of Hectarworld Group.

From humble beginnings in Taiping, Kenny moved to Kuala Lumpur during his teenage years with his mother and younger sister after the passing of his father and elder sister, seeking a brighter future in the capital city. Kenny had to work as a part-timer in various jobs while pursuing his studies in economics and IT as he strongly believed that education is the key to success and the best solution out of poverty. Finally after years of hard work and perseverance juggling work and studies, he successfully obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Economics (Hons), Diploma in IT, Economics and Business Administration.

After graduation, Kenny was hired by an ICT MNC for an entry-level job and quickly rose through the ranks after working with a few top 500 Fortune MNCs. Within a short period of time, he was overseeing Asia and Oceania regions. It came as a surprise to many when he decided to resign from his high-flying position after 8 years – because deep inside, he knew that this was not the dream that he was chasing. He left this comfort zone and joined the real estate industry where he started from the bottom again – as a real estate negotiator. Coupled with his never stop learning attitude, he continued his studies to pursue his Diploma in Real Estate Agency by BOVAEP. It was not long before he started his real estate company and other real estate related businesses, bringing with him his years of vast managerial experience and innovative, technology driven approach.

Under Kenny’s leadership, Hectarworld Group has now involved into everything real estate related – including real estate agency, property management, training and education, end-to-end real estate investment services and co-development with property developers. With some 1000 members and staff, the Group is able to provide service coverage in the northern, central and southern regions of West Malaysia, together with a service delivery team in Australia and affiliates in Singapore.

Kenny envisions to make Hectarworld Group the leading real estate company, a fully-integrated real estate investment and development firm. It is also in his goal to bring the Group to the next level – by expanding its wing to the South East Asia region in the near future. 

A BEAUTIFUL ENCOUNTER WITH doTERRA

LIM MIAN FOO
Deowa Academy Founder, 
doTERRA Malaysia Founder,
Presidential Diamond doTERRA Wellness Advocate,
Certified Aromatherapist

Before I encountered doTERRA, I had already established a thriving business that dealt with flowers and decorations. I started this floristry business because of my deep passion for beauty and nature. It was a business that happily married my love for Mother Nature and my desire to make people happy through beautiful creations. So, when doTERRA entered my life, it was a natural transition as it combines both making people happy through beauty and creating a blissful healthy life for others through the same avenue – Nature. doTERRA has made my happiness even more meaningful and complete. Helping people to alleviate pain is so much more rewarding for me than making them happy only through beauty. Perhaps being an already established businessman for almost 20 over years has made it easier for me to share the the effectiveness and benefits of essential oils instead of just selling it as a product. I am elated whenever I see the happy faces of people that I have shared doTERRA with.

On this journey, one of the challenges I faced was sharing the correct usage of essential oils. Nowadays, a lot of people think that fragrance oils and essential oils are the same. Upon setting out on my mission, I have studied and conducted extensive research on the benefits of essential oils on the body, mind, and even internal healing (emotional issues).

The main source of success is to focus on your Effort.

Whenever I venture into anything, I always have a plan and set my own goals and target. So i applied this when I started my doTERRA journey. In this industry, duplication is very important. In this culture of duplication, the way you work-lead by example and others will follow, this makes everything much easier. One of the biggest keys to building a successful business in this industry is to understand those we serve. Getting to know my clients better has made it easier for us to work together. In 2018, a few business partners and I established DEOWA Academy. The purpose of DEOWA Academy is to provide comprehensive support towards my team members’ education of essential oils and career development.

On this amazing journey, sustaining my Passion is essential, which sometimes can be a hurdle. Without Passion and Patience, this journey would have been much more difficult. Passion and the absolute belief in the benefits and efficacy of doTERRA products keeps me going. Especially when I hear great life-changing testimonials from people I served.  Since I found out that I could help people become more healthy and joyful through my sharing, doTERRA has become a huge passion of mine. The sheer joy and pleasure of enabling people to have greater quality of life can never be expressed in mere words, it is one of the greatest rewards I have received on this journey. In addition, putting in Effort brings Success. Whenever we want or need something, we have to put in the effort to achieve those goals. Being a doTERRA entrepreneur has not only brought me success but has also enhanced my love towards sharing it with others. 

Believing in the products we share is the best way to be successful. Belief brings Energy and Creativity. It will allow you to succeed in all aspects of your life. My strong belief in doTERRA and passion to share it with others has enabled me to run this business successfully with heartfelt joy. I confidently believe that this journey is not at its end, but it’s just a beginning! I will continue to share the Love of doTERRA by “Changing the world one drop, one person, and one community at a time.”

TOI-ING with fashion

ZANG TOI
International Fashion Designer

ZANG TOI is a renowned Fashion Designer who has built a tradition of elegance for over 20 years. Zang was born and raised in Kuala Krai, Kelantan, Malaysia. He landed in New York City at the age of 20 where he studied at the distinguished Parsons School of Design. Zang is one of the first Asian designers championed by the U.S Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. 

Since then, Zang’s work has been featured in many major publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair etc. Not only has he dressed Hollywood celebrities such as Fergie (Black Eyed Peas) and many others, he has also created luxurious wardrobe for philanthropists and royalty including Melinda Gates and Saudi Princess Haifa Bandar Al Saud.

Today, after 28 years of being in business, the designer opens his first flagship boutique at 1046 Lexington Avenue, New York City. The world continues to recognize Zang’s passion for timeless beauty as he builds on a strong tradition of elegance.

Who is Zang Toi in your own words? Zang Toi is a free thinker who leads his own creative path.

Have you ever thought of becoming a fashion designer in your younger days? No, I have always thought that I might become a fine artist, architect, or an interior designer.

If you were to choose again, what career would you choose and why? I would choose interior design, as I am obsessed and passionate about historical interior designs and recreating them in my own modern way.

What does it take to be a fashion designer? Formal Fashion design training, dedication, and hard work.

The fashion industry is among the greatly affected industries because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Were you affected and how did you manage 2020? I was affected like the rest of the fashion industry. Fortunately, with perseverance and extreme hard work, I managed to stay above the water.

Would you encourage the new generation to take up fashion design? Why? Absolutely, one must not only have the talent and passion, he or she must also be willing to put in hours of hard work to be successful in this, or any industry. It is a 24/7 job.

How do you see today’s fashion industry, including the designers and creatives, compared to the good old days? Today’s fashion industry is more about fast fashion and instant gratification. The new generation are less concerned about the quality and craftsmanship.

How do you find the Malaysian fashion industry compared to the fashion industry in the USA? I am unable to comment on this since I have been away and abroad for the last 42 years.

Many say that fashion designers make good money and fame, what are your thoughts on this? I agree, but remember what I said earlier about putting in hard work and that it is a 24/7 job?

How do you judge success? Success is in the eye of the beholder. It has never occurred to me to judge success.

Has Zang Toi achieved the goals he set when stepping into the fashion world? I think I am fortunate enough to receive attention and great press for my work while maintaining the love and support from my loyal clients.

What is the secret of being Zang Toi? The secret is being my happy self and treating people the way I want to be treated.

Is there anything else you would like to add? Be happy, be kind and be generous.  

A Timid Boy turned Corporate Leader and International Speaker

Coach K
Founder of Wisdom Woods®

Born to a modest family, Coach K was a timid boy and today he is the founder of Wisdom Woods®, a company that offers learning and coaching programs for all ages. Prior to that, he accumulated years of leadership experience in the corporate world, having been a Group CEO, COO, GM, managing and setting up businesses in multiple industries, including logistics, property development, software engineering, business consulting and education. Other than having Masters of Science, Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce (Hons), he is an internationally certified Trainer and Coach by several International Boards. Due to his diverse background, he has been invited to speak in areas including leadership, business, logistics, economics, IT, mental health and education. He is active in community service, currently serving as the President of the Penang Symphony Society, the Vice President of The Society of the Logisticians, Malaysia, the Penang State Staff Officer (Training) of St John Ambulance of Malaysia and many others. He has also created many learning programs. Amongst the bigger ones include 5P Self-Leadership, 5R Leadership Framework and even a full set of Children’s Leadership Program. 

What’s the story about you being a timid boy?
When I was a boy, I feared many things, especially loud noises and being around people. That’s why, even until I was 10, I didn’t like Chinese New Year because there were too many people around. Whilst most children would be having fun, I would hide away in my Grandma’s room every night due to the noise of the firecrackers and fireworks. 

Oh… but today you are in a profession that talks to many people. What happened?
I was in Kwang Hwa Standard 5, when Cikgu Tan suddenly asked me to memorise an Essay. Memorising was easy for me but she then asked me to recite in front of the class. My whole body was shaking and sweating! I got through it with great relief until she added, “You’re joining the Malay Speech Contest.” Immediately, I stood there frozen for a while! I had no choice because I had no courage to even say ‘no’.

How did that change you?
Being an obedient student, I just followed every single instruction to prepare for the contest. Contest day came and I ‘accidentally’ won. What I won was not only a contest but an important pivot in life, where I started to believe in myself. Since then, I started taking part in speech contests for all languages and continued even through Secondary School, having won Zone and State Championships. I continued to be vocal when I received a scholarship to study in Australia. Being the National Convenor of NLC, a national union for about 200,000 international students in Australia, I spoke in Conferences including Australian Vice-Chancellors’ Committee, IDP Australia, ISANA and even invited to speak in the Australian Senate Committee Hearing about a new Bill. 

You obviously had great perks in Corporate. What made you start Wisdom Woods®?
I am thankful that throughout my career, I discovered I like helping people grow. When I was involved in setting up an international school, that was the final confirmation for me that I really enjoy growing talents. I believe strongly that everyone has talents and Everyone Can Learn. Therefore, just like the mysterious forest, I hope that Wisdom Woods® can be a place for everyone to keep learning, uncover talents and grow wisdoms.

Heading for Extinction

Extinction happens when a species dies and disappear completely from the face of the earth either from human interference, evolutionary issues or natural disasters. Some argued that extinction is a natural phenomenon but nowadays many believe that humans are the main culprit. Incidentally,  it is also humans that are the only saviour that can save and protect these endangered species. If nothing drastic is done soon, it will be an unfortunate fact that future generations can only be reading about these beautiful species or visiting them stuffed in museums. Below are 8 remarkable species heading for extinction.

A2 Milk – The Future of Dairy

By Dr. Lim Ban Keong, D.V.M (UPM)GM of Rhone Ma Holdings Bhd

The ruminant industry in Malaysia only started taking off over the last ten years with many participants being small farmers. To help them out, we plan to share our combined expertise and technological knowhows for dairy farming and milk production with other farmers and other interested parties,”  – said Dr. Lim Ban Keong


There’s nothing better than a splash of milk in your morning coffee for the important nutrients for our body. However, sometimes consuming milk and milk products might result in tummy problems. If that happens, it’s time to try A2 milk.

Tummy problems from milk may not necessarily be due to lactose intolerance or trouble digesting lactose sugar in milk. Recent research suggests that a less-known protein, A1, may be one of the culprits. A1 produces a protein fragment known as Beta-casomorphin-7 (BCM-7) during digestion which triggers tummy discomfort and symptoms similar to those with lactose intolerance.

There are 2 kinds of proteins in milk: A1 and A2. While most cows’ milk contains both, A2A2 cows produce only A2 protein, which results in A2 milk.

Rhone Ma Holdings Berhad, a homegrown end-to-end animal health solutions provider, introduces the A2 milk to the local market through its acquisition of 49% interests each in three livestock companies in February 2020. The Group has teamed up with One Lazuli Sdn. Bhd., Nor Lazuli Nutrition Sdn. Bhd. and Nor Livestock Farm Sdn. Bhd. in order to expand into the dairy farming business.

As a first step, the Group and its partners injected RM3 million capital in Nor Livestock Farm Sdn. Bhd. who operates a 6-acre dairy farm in Batang Kali, Selangor which currently house more than 160 A2A2 Holstein cattle. The Group expects to further expand the herd to 500 heads as they are expecting around 90 more female cows to be born in a few months’ time. In addition, they are also planning to import another batch of 100 impregnated cows in 2021. The farm’s milk production currently averages 12,000 litres/month and soon the farm is expected to produce approximately 65,000 litres/month. 

The Group’s shift into the ruminant sector is part and parcel of its responsibilities as a key industry player to further develop the local ruminant industry. Rhone Ma, a proponent of the Total Solutions Programme (TSP) which allows customers the flexibility to customise the animal health services and animal health products to form their desired animal health solution, has pledged to work together with local dairy farmers to support them and establish more dairy farms in the country in line with the government’s heed to stimulate the industry. 

“The ruminant industry in Malaysia only started taking off over the last ten years with many participants being small farmers. To help them out, we plan to share our combined expertise and technological knowhows for dairy farming and milk production with other farmers and other interested parties,” said Dr. Lim Ban Keong, Managing Director of Rhone Ma Holdings Berhad.

“This will also include advocating the use of Milk Boosta the premium cattle feed that was specially formulated to induce energy for maximum milk production for cattle in a tropical climate. The combination of Milk Boosta and Alfalfa Hay and some kind of supplements also helps to reduce heat stress,” added Qasem Alhasan, Managing Director of Nor Livestock Farm Sdn. Bhd.

With the establishment of more farms, the Group will not only be able to encourage their peers to thrive in the industry but also address the issue of fresh milk insufficiency in Malaysia head on. On top of that, as consumers become more health conscious and discerning in their food consumption, the Group and its partners envisage a big future for fresh A2 milk in the local market.

King Of Straits Chinese Porcelain

by CHT & Glen Chee


Famille rose kamchengs or covered jars are considered the ‘must have’ among Straits Chinese porcelain specialist collectors. There are two major types of kamchengs that are considered to be Straits Chinese between the period of mid 19th to early 20th century. The famille rose enamels are colourful and gaudy wares that are usually presented as gifts and used during ceremonial occasions to display the opulence and affluence of the Straits Chinese Peranakan families. The other category of kamchengs are the Kitchen Qing blue and whites that were mass produced and exported to South East Asia mainly for utilitarian usage. The word Kamcheng pronounced in Hokkien, a Chinese dialect from Fujian carries the connotations of love, affection and relationship. Among the Straits Chinese Peranakan community,  most have opined that these colourful kamchengs were used for storing cooked rice or as soup tureens and used during special and auspicious occasions. However, in recent years, the television series ‘Little Nyonya’ had dramatised the colourful kamcheng into an item that the bride would bring along to her new home after the wedding ceremony. Perhaps this dramatisation could be interpreted as the kamcheng signifies or seals the ‘kamcheng’ (relationship) between both families through the wedding ceremony. Hence, many collectors and enthusiasts have started to accept and preach this analogy. 

There is no doubt that these is food containers but there are no evidence suggesting that only the colourful ones were actually used for ready cooked food or as a momento for brides. In fact these porcelain pieces were mainly used as storage jars for dried food and herbs in China and other countries where the Chinese had migrated to. It is common to find traditional Chinese medicine halls using the blue and white kamchengs as herbal jars. It may well be that only the affluent families could afford having these famille rose porcelain to match their other table wares. Large kamchengs made during the mid 19th to early 20th century are hardly found in China but most extant pieces are found in Southeast Asia. Some rarely encountered leviathan kamchengs can comfortably hold a sitting baby! As for the mini or baby kamchengs, it is accepted that they were predominantly used for storing valuable daily health supplements or life saving medicinal pills.

The blue and white kamchengs are comparatively much cheaper than the colourful ones. Prices for the coloured pieces greatly depend on the ground colour, size, motif designs and markings. A big rare kamcheng may fetch more than RM100, 000 whereas a green ground baby kamcheng could be asking for RM5,000. Beginners  should be vigilant that there are a good number of fakes and a significant  amount of reproduction items in the markets asking for genuine antique prices.

reflections on healthcare here & beyond

Bryan Lin Boon Diann
Chief Executive Officer of Sunway Medical Centre


2020 has brought upon a new wave of change to people everywhere – from wearing a face mask in public areas, social distancing, practising good personal hygiene at all times to working and studying at home. 

Likewise, the hospital landscape has altered due to the unprecedented arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, patients can meet their doctors from the comforts of their homes through virtual clinics, evolving the way hospitals operate as digitisation becomes the norm. 

The pandemic has effectively changed the way businesses are run and for healthcare institutions like Sunway Medical Centre, we need to be innovative. We were the first tertiary hospital to establish the telemedicine service at the start of the pandemic, and this is one of the ways that has transformed the way we support care outside of our facility. 

We have made healthcare more accessible by extending services such as medicine delivery, nursing care, diabetes care, wound care, physiotherapy and phlebotomy to homes through our personalised, mobile healthcare services and home nursing under Sunway Home Healthcare (formerly known as SunMed@Home). 

We have also set up a Telemedicine Command Centre which facilitates referrals for patients with medical emergencies to the hospital. This will provide better patient experience journey and peace of mind during their times of need. This project is likely the first in the country and will be another game changer in the clinical landscape.

The ultimate goal is to improve patient value, and the only way the healthcare industry will achieve this is by digitalising healthcare, leveraging on artificial intelligence, telemedicine, Internet of Things (IoT) and other digital platforms to propel it to the next level. Robotics and automation will also be vital in improving overall service delivery and customer experience while enabling more personalised medical care. 

We need to demonstrate greater value in the healthcare system in this challenging time while continuing to care for patients requiring multispeciality and multidisciplinary care services and/or complex technologies. 

Setting up new and advanced quarternary service offerings like bone marrow transplant, renal transplant and paediatric cardiac surgery has also set Sunway Medical Centre apart in the market. The hospital is also focused on Women & Children Services and Acute Services to ensure that communities are well taken care of. 

As the industry grows, the requirement for highly-skilled, professional talent will also increase. 

Healthcare providers like us will need to continue developing a sustainable talent pipeline, while strengthening the existing talent pool with strategic hires, retention initiatives and continued employee training and development.

While diseases will never be completely eliminated, through science, data and technology, we will be able to identify it earlier, intervene proactively and better understand its progression to help consumers more effectively and actively sustain their wellbeing. 

Personalised medicine will progress and as researchers find out more about the particular genetic makeup of diseases, we will be able to give specific drugs to target it. And by 2030, healthcare will be centred on patients empowered to prevent diseases rather than seek treatment. They will receive personalised health solutions in ways that are integrated seamlessly into their daily lives. 

In short, healthcare providers need to change accordingly in order to forge ahead. As the rate of change in healthcare is accelerating, healthcare providers must harness the forces of driving transformation and use them to its advantage and in this case, growth, innovation and diversification.
