This is also Watsons continuous engagement with the Malaysian youths to empower them through exciting programs like this,” said Danny Hoh, head of marketing, Watsons Malaysia.

“In this year’s R U Tough Enough?, KIX HD and Astro are excited to go beyond the stereotype that men are tougher than women with our very own battle of the sexes. We are sure that this will make for an enthralling competition, as we know that toughness isn’t limited to physical strength; it is also a test of mental endurance. And a big thank you to our sponsors especially Watsons and participating brands for supporting this program,” said Shirley Cheong, director of marketing at Celestial Tiger Entertainment, Hong Kong.
