Bfab (which stands for Be fabulous) was started last year by Netreba, Co-founder and former Managing Director (Russia & CIS) at foodpanda, along with Raeesa Sya and Sergey Gaydar.

Pawel Netreba passionately speaking about what Bfab is all about.

It is an online marketplace for beauty and wellness, where users can book for hair, massage, spa, nail, waxing and makeup services with various salons listed on the platform. In addition, the portal also allows users to compare prices, and comment and rate the services.

The instant booking CRM system gives the ability for users to view available slots at the salons in real time, book the service and receive confirmation instantly, claims the startup.

“The online beauty industry in Malaysia has been practically absent. Apart from Groupon, which has been pushing for beauty promotions/deals through its online channel, no beauty provider (with some exceptions) provides online appointments. At the moment, there’re several marketplace players similar to ours evolving in the country, but all lack in funding, relevant background and the technology,” Netreba told e27 in an interview.

In just within two months of its soft launch, the startup said that it has already signed up around 350 salons in Klang Valley, including A Cut Above, Amante, Mandara Spa, The Soloist Salon, Kimarie and Makeover Hair Salon.


“By bringing customers and salons together onto one marketplace, we help salons to push their online presence/exposure, bringing them new customers and hence increased revenues and profitability. This can make the difference,” said Gaydar.

With Bfab, you can now book your service anytime, anywhere and 24/7! Even if you book at 2am, the real-time booking system will make sure you’ll find the free time slot and will be able to book the appointment instantly.

For convenience, users will receive confirmation and reminder emails / sms, historic and upcoming booking overview, and the ability to add salons as favorites, add a credit card by using their secure system.

They have also revealed that these services will be available at your own home, office or event by using their concierge service option.

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.





NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.


An hour later, the show began once Datuk Nancy Yeoh, President & CEO of STYLO International and Chairman of MBSTYLOAFF arrived but not before Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson…

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
