About Me

I was born in May 1984 and I have been living with my lovely parents and siblings in Singapore ever since. After graduating from Nanyang Technological University, I took on a very challenging appointment in Tanah Merah Country Club as an Assistant Golf Course Superintendent.

In May 2011, I began to experience unusual symptoms such as palpitation and breathlessness. A health check showed that I have a low haemoglobin and high white blood cell count. I was admitted to Singapore General Hospital on 8 June 2011 and I was later diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, subtype M2 (AML-M2).

Since then, I have started my chemotherapy treatment in the hospital. For each treatment or cycle, I have to be confined in the hospital for about four weeks. I disliked the idea of having too much idling time in the hospital. Hence, I decided that I could use the time to blog about my cancer fighting journey.

    Hi TJ,

    Just want to say that your positive attitude and fighting spirit inspires me.

    I had been feeling down for some time due to some issues that are too small compared to what you are going through.

    I hope you will get well soon and I will be rooting for you. Pls know that you will be in my prayers.

    I also graduated from NTU, 3 yrs your senior.

    Take care, god bless you
