Cara Delevinge and Kate Moss will be the face of My Burberry as they portrays individualism, optimism and distinctive characters as recapitulated in My Burberry and the fragrance recognizes no age constraint. The bottle and fragrance brings every elements of Burberry into one.

My Burberry

My Burberry was created by Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey in collaboration with perfumer Francis Kurkdjian.Francis is renowned in the world of perfumery having worked in the industry for over 20 years. My Burberry was to be a timeless yet contemporary fragrance representing the legacy of the Burberry brand. The partnership with Burberry was a natural choice for both Francis and the brand.’

My Burberry fragrance carries the scent of London garden after the rain bringing the grand floral fragrance of confidence, elegance yet discreet in typical British way. My Burberry is a bright grand floral fragrance that maintains its fresh floral scent through to the dry down.

Top Notes
Sweet pea and bergamot oil
The oil is sourced from Calabria in Italy and extracted
from the fresh rind by cold expression

Heart notes
Golden quince and freesia with a dash of geranium oil
The oil is sourced from Morocco and Egypt, extracted
from the plant by steam distillation

Base notes
Rose absolute and patchouli oil

The bottle reflects on the same design principles and craftsmanship as the Burberry trench coat, fusing British innovation and heritage with a timeless modernity. Simple yet bold, made of smooth, tactile glass, the design is shaped to echo the folds and soft pleats of the Burberry trench coat.

The bold horn-finish cap reflects the distinctive hand-stitched buttons of the trench coat. Like natural horn, the material has colour variations, making each cap unique and each bottle a one-off.

Around the neck of the bottle is a hand-tied gabardine ribbon knot, the fabric at the heart of the trench coat. Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, the waterproof fabric revolutionised rainwear and continues to be woven in Yorkshire, England from superfine cotton.

The shape of the inner glass bottle has been molded to mirror from iconic trench coat pocket shape. Presented in a trench-coloured box. The interior is lined in gold and embossed with the iconic Burberry check design, a badge of origin for the brand since the 1920s.

The My Burberry juice is reminiscent of the signature honey shade, one of the three colours used in the brand’s Heritage Trench Coat collection and synonymous with the trench coats worn by Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne in the My Burberry campaign.

Individual beauty is personalized with luminous, subtle hues from the Burberry palette.

This is the second day I have the nail polish and it has chipped but that is because of the things I do.

Berjaya Rasa Utara 2

Here was the heart warming food that I get to taste. Clockwise,  Daging Rendang Utara, Sayur Campur, Ayam Kari Kapitan, Ayam Goreng Cili Lagenda and Kari Ikan Rasa Utara. My favorite is the Daging Rendang Utara because it doesn’t just taste like the ordinary beef rendang but it has an additional spice that enhance and makes the beef much more flavorful.

Mediviron UOA Clinic Sets Its Eye On Vietnam Tourist, Making Aesthetic Treatments Accessible Conveniently & Safe - Q&A

After the signing, there was a Q&A session with Dr Chen and Mr Adams opened for the media.

1. How long has this collaboration being planned in the timeline?

At approximately for 2 – 3 years

2. Why Malaysia?

They would like to re-channel it to Malaysia as to do something different and unique. Also to focus what’s available here and to increase the amount as there is an increment of medical tourism to 20%.

3. What is the target from Vietnam?

Of course, as much as possible. Currently, Mediviron UOA Clinic have 50% patients from Malaysia and the rest of 50% are from Europe, Iran and Singapore, not many Vietnamese are coming yet. They would like to be the first to tap into the market.

4. What is the procedure price ranging at?

They are ranging from MYR100 – MYR 22,000 depending on the which treatment to undergo and they are non invasive and non surgical treatments.

5. How much revenue growth are you expecting from this collaboration?

Mediviron UOA Clinic is looking at least 10 – 20% growth from the current revenue if possible.

6. Do you have any visiting surgeons or any attachments from Vietnam to consult the procedures?

Mediviron UOA Clinic do not have this as we are focusing to have Vietnamese tourist to come to our clinic to have their treatment done. Maybe there might be a need in the future that Mediviron UOZ Clinic might need someone from Vietnam to refer  to for someone to come to Malaysia for treatments.

7. What happened when patients face complications?

Our treatments are mainly non-invasive,  there is a minimal risk. Mediviron UOA Clinic do not do surgery and the recovery  period will be less than a week . We have no worries of anticipating major complications. We encourage our patients if they have any problems to visit them again or if they are away or overseas, they could call or email us.

We will also get a specific recovery time from Mediviron UOA Clinic and we would strongly recommend that they stay in Malaysia during that recovery time and they do not leave until they pay their final visit to the clinic to confirm their viable health.

8. How much cheaper are the rates  here as to compare with Vietnam?

Take for example of Botox in Vietnam, they are priced at USD900, that’s every expensive. They can fly here and have the treatment done in Malaysia for that price. The reason behind it is because that they have very heavy taz and they are considered to be luxury items. Botox and fillers are considered luxury items that they have high tax. A lot of pharmaceutical  comes in with no tax on it but those items are heavily taxed.

9. Do you have any plans to collaborate with other countries after Vietnam?

In Mediviron UOA Clinic, we have a a good number of patients comes from other countries such as Europe, America, Middle East and our neighbouring country, Singapore because our treatments are still cheaper after the conversion of currency.  The starting stage is Vietnam tourism and from there we will see and decide.

Also, we would like to get possibly Mongolia becuse projections for that country within the next decade is that the disposable income  per person is going to be rapidly high and they will be looking for places to visit. They have already travelling into Vietnam and Malaysia too, we believe they could be interested to come here for medical procedures as well.

10. What is your percentage of Malaysian women or men that comes for the treatment at Mediviron UOA Clinic?

There is no statistics in Malaysia on how many had come to various clinic or how many procedures is done because our government does not compile it.. There is no centre which compiles the data, we will only know how many patients to their procedure in our clinic but for other clinics, we will not be able to access to their database and there is no database available in the country but what we do know is that the numbers are increasing because the numbers of patients we are getting is increasing. Nowadays, we have more men coming in for procedures too. We have approximately 70% of our patients are ladies , 30% are men and their age ranges from 18 to 70s.

After the Q&A session, everyone including the members of media was ushered to have their lunch. For further updates of Mediviron UOA Clinic, please do give them a like below in their Facebook.
