R U Tough Enough? is Back, But This Time, Searching for Southeast Asia’s Toughest!
Are Malaysians the toughest in Southeast Asia? Well, that is what Fisherman’s Friend and KIX HD are trying to find out. With the support of Fisherman’s Friend, KIX HD (Astro Ch 729), is bringing back its annual R U Tough Enough? competition on an even bigger scale this year. Finalists from six countries in Southeast Asia - namely Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam - will be competing for the title of “Southeast Asia’s Toughest” and a grand prize of US$15,000 (RM61,900)!
This year’s R U Tough Enough? Southeast Asia Advocate is none other than dynamic Malaysian fitness instructor Ishaq Vadillo. As a young man trying to support his family through financial difficulties, he was repeatedly told he was too young and wasn’t taken seriously. However, he persisted and took on various jobs before discovering fitness as a passion. To all aspiring R U Tough Enough? participants, he says “Challenge yourself; you never know what you are capable of until you push yourself to achieve something great. It all starts with determination and perseverance.”
MAG speaks to Ishaq on Wednesday to find out more about R U Tough Enough? Southeast Asia.
