New Year, New Life, & New PA Needed

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 12:26:39 +0000

I hope everyone had a memorable Chinese New Year celebration recently! My CNY was slow as usual. As my parents aged, our family life grew more and more private. We only contact and meet up our relatives when there is a need to. My cousin and his family in Dubai visited us like they often […]

My name is Yvonne Foong, or Ming Niang – as FAB’s staff used to call me. I am a 30-year old Malaysian author with a genetic condition that makes tumours grow anywhere in my body throughout life. In order to continue living, I started a project to fund my own life saving surgeries at the […]

Picking Your First Home: House, Condo, or Townhouse?

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 13:47:47 +0000

Someday, I will reach the stage where I will need to consider what kind of home would I want for myself and my future family. While a large and significant life decision like a home purchase obviously requires a lot of thought and incorporates a complex buying process, the basic gist of choosing the perfect […]

My Books Are Back To Me

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 13:48:26 +0000

Since January 2015, I directed all proceeds from the sale of books I authored to my foundation fundraising, hoping that doing so will boost support for the project and speed up the fundraising progress. Many books have been sold for that purpose and funds received were duly placed into the foundation fund. However, a few […]

On Monday (28th November 2016), I had fluid drained from my thyroid at Sunway Medical Centre by endocrinologist, Dr. Wong Ming and her colleagues. The whole procedure costed me RM 1,558 in total.

For My Own Treatments Too

I have been transferring my own medical records from my previous treatment centers to Keck School of Medicine gradually the past few months so that Dr Friedman and his colleagues can start managing health condition for the long term. My last brain surgery to remove an acoustic neuroma at NIH made me feel strongly that […]

Incredible Hulks

Since last Thursday, my home has been undergoing minor renovations. Two of our bedrooms needed to be tiled. This was a post WW2 house in PJ Old Town. My mother moved in when she was 7 years old. These rooms used to be carpeted sometime after she moved in. The carpets were taken out recently […]

Used Laptops

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 03:16:21 +0000

Recently, a family member bought me a new laptop so I asked my friend, Elliot, to clean up the old one plus another old one I had, to be given away. After some deliberation, I remembered the African members of our church and decided to give them to help their situation. I learned from Elliot […]
