On a crys­tal clear day in Kuala Lumpur, team BAZAAR de­scended upon Be Ur­ban Well­ness for a shoot with Datin Dian Lee, the founder of the well­ness cen­tre, fab­u­lous en­tre­pre­neur with a sharp eco-con­scious mind, and su­per mum in Louboutins. No stranger to the pages of BAZAAR, Dian, 31, made her first ex­clu­sive ap­pear­ance in a fea­ture about her 26th birth­day party, which show­cased her eco in­flu­ences with a green theme, and of course, there was her star­ring role in Malaysia’s Most Stylish Women in 2008.

A quote that res­onates through her mod­ern hip­pie life­style: “Shrug off the re­straints that you have al­lowed oth­ers to place upon you. You are lim­it­less. There is noth­ing you can­not achieve” is also her com­pany The Clear­wa­ter Group’s mantra. A unique group of friends from dif­fer­ent fields such as ar­chi­tec­ture, the ho­tel line, and other de­signin­spired fields formed the chic com­pany that cre­ates small ex­clu­sive apart­ment de­vel­op­ments.

Dian and her hus­band, Jared Lim, 43, are also the brains be­hind two of KL’s hottest eater­ies: Ploy and Way Mod­ern Chi­nois. “In­dulge in things you like but at the same time, it is im­por­tant to be mind­ful about what you put into your body. Eat with a con­scious mind of what is good and bad for you,” says Dian. “It was when we started Be Ur­ban Well­ness that my life­style re­ally changed. Life now is more bal­anced and I am able to feel good about my­self through work­ing out, yoga, and pam­per­ing at the well­ness haven. We are re­ally what we eat – I be­lieve in a plant-rich diet of more greens, nuts, and beans – and it’s im­por­tant to be mind­ful of what you put into your body, and to keep your­self ac­tive.”
