Barbie® You Can Be A Designer Fashion Reinvention Competition 2021

It was a dream come true for the six young winners of the Barbie® You Can Be A Designer Fashion Reinvention Competition. Not only did they win a once-in-a-lifetime mentorship opportunity to learn from Fashion Designer, Kittie Yiyi, and Fashion Stylist, Min Luna, their original designs were made reality and brought to life by Kittie Yiyi for both our winners and their Barbie® dolls.

The competition was open for submissions from 30 April 2021 to 7 June 2021. 85 entries from across Malaysia were submitted in two age categories: Category A (5-8 years old) and Category B (9-12 years old). The young hopefuls submitted a range of creative designs all conceived to WOW the judges and showcase their interests and personalities. The Top 20 entries were shortlisted for the Virtual Presentation, where the designers had the opportunity to present their designs to the judging panel composed of Kittie Yiyi, Min Luna, and Elaine Lim, Brand Manager of Mattel Continental Asia.
“It was so wonderful to meet the finalists at the Virtual Presentation and get a peek into their creative process,” said fashion designer, Kittie Yiyi. “I was inspired to see girls as young as 5 years old getting excited about fashion design. It brought back so many memories of when I was little and would sew clothes for my Barbie® dolls. It’s been such a joy to be a part of the journeys that these little designers are taking.”

Ensure Gold’s #Stand4Strength Challenge

Stand4Strength is an initiative by Abbott’s Ensure® Gold™ to encourage Malaysians, especially older adults to take better care of their muscle strength and overall health. Using the Muscle Age CalculatorEnsure® Gold™ provide an easy way to gauge the quality of muscle strength and performance by calculating the time required to sit and stand for five times.
As we grow older, muscle loss is inevitable. Here are some facts about muscle loss and the importance of muscle health:
  • Our body starts to lose up to 33% of muscle mass between the age of 40 to 80 years old. Despite the role it plays in our physical strength and immunity, muscle health is rarely emphasised today.
  • 4 in 5 older adults have low muscle mass and are at risk of malnutrition, which may impact their overall health and immunity.
  • Research has also shown that immunity can be compromised if an older adult loses more than 10% of lean body mass, while a decrease of over 30% can make the body susceptible to pneumonia


As part of its #Stand4Strength challenge, Abbott’s Ensure® Gold™ launched a Muscle Age Calculator, a simple tool that assesses muscle age.
