Celebri­ties can’t wait to visit Dr Katalina’s med­i­cal spa, writes SYAHIRAH MOKHTAZAR

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

THIS celebrity doc­tor has only of­fi­cially opened her med­i­cal spa a few days ago and she al­ready has a long list of celebri­ties wait­ing to try out the beauty treat­ments of­fered by Katalina Medispa.

Of course, it helps that the owner, Dr Katalina, whose real name is Dr Siti Khadi­jah, is also an artiste her­self and is friends with fel­low celebri­ties.

Be­ing a doc­tor and an artiste cer­tainly has its perks.

The 33-year-old sin­gle mother of two is a new­comer to the in­dus­try, hav­ing starred in Astro Prima’s 100-episode pop­u­lar drama Lara Aishah and re­leas­ing a sin­gle last Septem­ber ti­tled Kan


She is touched by the sup­port shown by her fel­low showbiz friends, among them, Ju­liana Evans, Jas­min Hamid (Dr Katalina’s co-star in Lara Aishah) and also new mother and singer Stacy Anam.

“When I told them I was go­ing to open a med­i­cal spa, they im­me­di­ately wanted to sign up for treat­ments. Hav­ing celebri­ties as my clients is good be­cause I look at it as a plat­form to ed­u­cate the pub­lic on the im­por­tance of tak­ing care of them­selves.

“Most of the celebri­ties are look­ing to try our treat­ments like Platel­lete Rich Plasma (Vam­pire Face Treat­ment) and the Royale Fa­cial. We also of­fer other treat­ments like Eye Re­ju­ve­nat­ing and Body Slim­ming,” said Dr Katalina at the launch of her new mu­sic video for Kan Ter­jadi at Sav­ille Melawati re­cently.

Signed un­der Warner Mu­sic Malaysia, Dr Katalina’s Kan Ter­jadi was se­lected as the sec­ond song for Lara Aishah’s of­fi­cial sound­track, while Dir­ga­hayu ,a duet by Faizal Tahir and Datuk Siti Nurhal­iza, was the main song for the se­ries.

Since quit­ting her job as a gen­eral prac­ti­tioner at a gov­ern­ment hos­pi­tal to build her med­i­cal spa while pav­ing her way into the in­dus­try, Dr Katalina said she had been blessed with many act­ing of­fers.

She will soon play a po­lice in­spec­tor in the new sea­son of Gerak Khas, the long­est-run­ning po­lice drama se­ries which airs on TV2.

“I used to watch Gerak Khas all the time. So, to be given this op­por­tu­nity to star in it thrills me. It’s a great pro­duc­tion for me to ex­plore a com­pletely dif­fer­ent role,” said Dr Katalina who is due to start film­ing it soon.
