Not many people know about the Malaysian Menopause Society (MMS) which has been around since 1997. The society recently underwent a much-needed image makeover. As a life member since its early years, I can say the transformation is total and for the better - from the MMS website to the Berita Menopos Magazine. The recent surge of MMS events bear testimony that current MMS president Dr Ho Choon Moy and her team are doing the right things to rejuvenate the society and give women (and their men) a good reason to sign up as members.

It's a good thing doctors have a sense of humour! (Click on the images to enlarge.)

MMS celebrated World Menopause Day (WMD) last Sunday 1 Nov 2009 with a series of talks on the theme "TRANSFORMATION - Up & Down, In & Out". Traditionally, WMD falls on 18 October every year. Event organizer Dr Liew Fah Onn must be congratulated on a job well done judging from the overwhelming response. Besides the talks by medical specialists, there was an exhibition of health and wellness products, a lucky draw and a fashion show with models selected from MMS members. I had a taste of catwalk modelling in a similar MMS event in 2007, and I can tell you it was FUN!

MMS members turned models for a day.

The only downside happened after the event, when the attendees were invited to high-tea. It was embarrassing to see quite a number of the ladies rushing for the food like they had just survived a week-long hunger strike.

MMS' s next event is the Fellowship Nite 2009 this Saturday 7 Nov, 7.30pm at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort, PJ. Tickets: RM20 for members, RM55 for non-members, spouses, friends. Interested? Call Mrs Jagjeet at 012-200 5276. I'm looking forward to an evening of fun, food and entertainment.

See you there.

I am glad that more and more people around the globe are learning about how to deal with menopause in a natural way. My wife has learned a great amount about http://bodylogicmd.com/bioidentical-hormone-therapy and has been undergoing treatment for a few months. She has seen great improvements each month and would recommend others to do their research.
