SlimDoc’s Jack Lim unveils his unbelievable transformation and celebrates with a bang

“Stop hesitating and act on it,” says Jack Lim. “Slim Doc is your professional slimming expert.” The Malaysian radio DJ and actor serves as the ambassador for Slim Doc and Hair Doc, and has recently undergone a six-month transformative journey with the brand. Through the Slim Doc UltraEM Plus treatment, Lim has lost a shocking 13kg, slimming down from a size XXXL to a size L and a marked improvement in health indicators including reduced fatty liver syndrome, improved sleep patterns, and heightened energy levels.

To celebrate the monumental achievement, the One Doc Group of Companies hosted a special carnival on Nanjing Street from 12 to 14 January. From engaging activities to exciting live performances to pampering sessions and lucky draws, the event was a beating heart of community spirit and a wonderful way to support local businesses.

Aesop opens the doors to its new space at TRX

PSA: Another celebrated beauty brand has joined the TRX family. Designed as an ode to teh tarik—not just as our nation’s favourite drink, but as a liquid symbol of Malaysia’s rich multiculturalism—the warm interiors of Aesop’s ninth boutique in Malaysia come in collaboration with local textile artist Muni Osman.

Bolts of woven cotton dyed with tea leaves are hung vertically to envelop the space in a wash of deep amber, abstracting the concept of the teh tarik process—of the tea being poured into its cup. It’s a gorgeous space to explore the brand’s expansive collection of skincare, body care, hair care, and fragrance offerings.

The best part? The new store is home to the first-ever Fragrance Armoire slide in Malaysia, where customers can infuse an item of clothing with their chosen Aesop fragrance.

Aesop is located at G.24.0, Ground Floor at The Exchange TRX.
