About the Founder

Madam Rejanah

Real Beauty Sdn Bhd, Bina Yakin Puri Sdn Bhd, and Gracie Hair & Beauty (Salon) have made a name for themselves in the local beauty industry under the leadership of founder and CEO, Madam Rejanah. Madam Rejanah, born in Kg. Jagil, Matunggong, Kudat, Sabah on May 3, 1983, has a rich family history deeply rooted in the Rungus ethnic group.

Her father, Bahanda Malingob, was a bright student who was fortunate to attend a Bible school later in life, where he studied Bible, Malay, English, and mathematics under German missionaries working in Kudat. The 1950s saw the establishment of the Protestant Church in Sabah (PCS), and pioneers began working among the Rungus people in 1960. Despite initial skepticism, more and more people began to embrace Christianity and abandon their traditional beliefs.

Madam Rejanah’s father was a devout Christian who instilled in her strong values and work ethic. She went on to found several successful businesses, including Real Beauty Sdn Bhd, Bina Yakin Puri Sdn Bhd, and Gracie Hair & Beauty (Salon).

Madam Rejanah married her husband, Aaron Bradley Masikam, on December 20, 2008. They have two children: Tatianna Gracie Aaron Bradley, born in 2009, and Leo Kenzo Sunduvan Aaron Bradley, born in 2016. Madam Rejanah is fluent in Malay and English and speaks Rungus, her native tongue. Her personal and professional achievements continue to inspire and motivate those around her.

A father’s love and passion for gardening was a source of inspiration for his daughter, Yanak, who fondly remembers the moments they spent in their small garden at home in Sabah, Malaysia. Mr. Bahanda Malingob was a devoted gardener who grew different kinds of plants, including aloe vera, which he used to soothe cuts and burns. Unfortunately, his garden was accidentally destroyed by a renovation worker while he was away for a workshop. Yanak, who was only 11 years old at the time, was unable to stop the workers from destroying her father’s beloved garden.

When her father returned home and saw what had happened, Yanak expected to be scolded. However, her father did not scold her, but instead asked her why she didn’t stop the worker. Yanak was moved by her father’s sadness and disappointment, and she could never forget that moment. Mr. Bahanda Malingob passed away on May 30, 2011, but his legacy of love and perseverance lives on in Yanak, who has become a successful entrepreneur and founder and CEO of Real Beauty Sdn Bhd, Bina Yakin Puri Sdn Bhd, and Gracie Hair & Beauty (Salon) in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. She credits her father’s guidance and inspiration as key factors in her success, and he will always be her hero.
