Klinik Ajwa, SELCARE Clinic & Poliklinik Amalmedik | Industri Halal Selangor

I was confused upon receiving the itinerary for Industri Halal Selangor Fam Trip, it stated clinic visit. And you know what was the best part… it is not one, not two BUT three clinic visit. I still don’t get it…. Why clinic? What does it has to do with Industri Halal? I mean, based on my brain logic the halal part will be more on med of which we should be visiting the Pharmaniaga of the world or Pfizer or whatever lah – basically kilang buat ubat (and bukan klinik kan).

But as usual, curiosity will always get the best of me hence I joined the trip to understand their angle and obviously answer to all my ‘WHYS’. You know how they say curiosity kills the cat, kalau I cat memang dah lama gone dah… sebab habis semua benda I curious kan. Hahahhahahaa…

After going thru all 3 clinics and understanding their respective USP (Unique Selling Proposition), I appreciate them better now and of course I also understood UPENS direction better. Meh nak cita one by one.

1. Klinik Ajwa, Shah Alam
This is by far the most awe-aspiring story I have ever heard. I don’t think I can be half as good as them but I shall try. First, I will share you my thoughts about them and why we all must strive be like them (or the best version of one self, at least).

I was told that they started a small clinic as they aspire to grow the business and help others, they even have to sleep in the clinic as one of the reason was the area has a high theft rate (back then lah). NOW? Now they have a few outlets in Shah Alam alone, and the one we were at has 2 pintu (2 pintu dalam English apa yek?). I asked, why 2 pintu? What is the different between this 2 clinics reason being it is just at the next block jer. So this was what they said :

a. General Clinic
- The one we are at is meant for general public/sickness (not sure how to word this)
- Tight SOP upon entering and registering
- Social distancing seating arrangement
- 2-4 doctors attending patients at a time (during peak hours)

b. Klinik Ibu Dan Anak
- Attending to only pregnant moms and kids
- The split is to ensure pregnant mom doing their routine OBGYN check-up is not in the same clinic as public, especially during the pandemic - mom, baby and kids health comes first.
- Similarly, 2-4 doctors attending patients at a time (during peak hours)
- Baby delivery (birth) will be at the hospital of choice
- The great part is that you can request a female Muslim gynae. A definite plus point for many.

2. SELCARE Clinic Sdn Bhd, Shah Alam
16 branches all over Selangor and KL but yet to bump into one in Ampang though. I learnt that SELCARE is a subsidiary of SELGATE Corporation that has a well-integrated network of healthcare practices. And SELGATE is a wholly owned subsidiary of Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS). I was made to understand that the consultation fee is lower that other clinics hence to enquire prior to the consultation yah.

3. Poliklinik Amalmedik, Kota Damansara
This is a unique clinic and I am surprised that many did not know about their existence. They specialise in pain and surgery treatment. Services that they provide are ear wax microsuction, hyaluronic acid injection, minor surgery, wound care and circumcision. Where else type if pain that you should pay a visit to Amalmedik are shoulder pain, elbow pain, hand ache, knee pain, forgetfulness and foot pain.

I was having a bad shoulder pain during this trip and they volunteered to help to ease the pain. Upon detecting the exact pain spot they injected and it soothed after a few days. I think I should visit them 1-2 more times as it did help with the pain (was suffering for 1-2 months during that point). The problem with me is the discipline (facepalm).

The price range was pretty ok for me but my advice is for you to check with your respective panel/corporate insurance plan if they cover the cost. For me, my panel doesn’t include this unless it is done at the hospital so I have to pay from my own pocket lor.

So, there you go. Halal in this sense is very broad, not just food but medical, fashion, hospitality (hotel) and many more.

Baker’s Cottage | JAKIM Certified Halal

Well well well…. Little did I know Baker’s Cottage has this fantastic meal offer.
To be honest, I saw it being displayed a couple of times at the outlet near my house whenever I drop by to get some buns for my mom but I have never stop to ask (let alone to buy, mana lah I tau sedap kan).

JAKIM certified halal; Baker’s Cottage is currently popular with its RM12.99 Whole Roasted Chicken Promo (BBQ or Black Pepper) and this is so worth it. It also comes with rice ie Roast Chicken Rice Set with Macau Egg Tart/ Donut and Roast Chicken Rice Set with Macau Egg Tart/ Donut + Soup.

One may wonder is how come they can sell at such a low price, so we decided to ask and truth reveals - apparently their parent company owns the biggest poultry farm in Malaysia. Leong Hup (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is the largest poultry producer is supplying chicken to their subsidiaries – Ayam A1 and The Baker’s Cottage, hence the affordable price point. Its ‘farm-to-plate’ business model paid off big time and has made Baker’s Cottage a household name todate.

With more than 100 outlets all over Malaysia, Baker’s Cottage has proven that consumer-oriented strategy of serving fresh and quality food at value-for-money price is the way to go. Married with great marketing strategy ie. understanding its customer needs as well as targeting semi-urban and secondary townships helped in accelerating the business.

Aside from the popular Roasted Chicken Promo, other promos include cake slice at RM9.90 for 2 slices. What fascinate me as the loaf cake that they are selling of which I feel suitable as an ole-ole when visiting. Don’t you think so too.
