Tough Love

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 03:25:23 +0000

Now and then, I have people with neurofibromatosis opening up to me. They tell me about their conditions, situations, and how they feel. Some of them have yet to undergo as many surgeries as I have and have yet to develop as many physical challenges as I have. Some others have been through more in […]

Equal Portions

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 02:04:28 +0000

I once heard the term “equal portions” from a bishop in Africa but never checked what it meant. This year God showed it to me through my life experience unwittingly. After having three major surgeries in US early this year, of which two were brain surgeries, I returned to Malaysia and found that many people […]

Forever First Love

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 03:18:10 +0000

This is how our brains worked. When we experience something significant emotionally and a piece of music happens to play at the same time of that experience, the music would become deeply ingrained into our brains like reinforcement. The first compounded by our emotionally significant experience. It happened to me once. In late 2013, a […]

Evidence Of Love

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 03:55:27 +0000

After I came back from NIH in March 2016, some people who had known me from way way back seemed to have become mentally unhinged and questioned me on my usage of funds openly, implying that I was using funds meant for my foundation project for my own needs. I found it absurd for they […]

Glad Tidings

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 03:36:24 +0000

I am grateful that I have many doctors and surgeons who are very familiar with neurofibromatosis and my medical history, ever ready and willing to assist and look out for me when I need them even though the recent post-operative mishap at NIH was regretful and unfortunate, I am still blessed because I have better […]

Since I came back from surgery on 5 March 2016, I have been blessed with many opportunities to bless others. The first person was a friend of mine whose mother suffered a stroke early last year and survived. But my friend had become very troubled in many ways looking after her mother, taking care of […]

Yesterday, a friend of mine visited me at home and told me that someone had publicly questioned my integrity on Facebook, referring to my foundation fund raising. This happened sometime in April 2016 when I had just returned from three major surgeries in US. At that time, I was struggling to adapt and adjust to […]

My new vision impairment resulting from post-operative management following my most recent brain surgery has made me reflect and reconsider my choices in life. In early 2010, my NF 2 friend from Washington state, told the Chief Investigator of the NF 2 study at NIH about me and asked if they would consider accepting international […]

Self Care In The Midst Of Tribulation

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:49:14 +0000

Self Monitoring People often asked me how was my health but I did not always reply at length because sometimes, people ask out of politeness or that they did not know what else to say. In such situations, once I started describing my health progress in detail, the other person will lose interest evidently. Over […]

Look West

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 06:18:09 +0000

Look West In December 2012, I started attempting to build a humanitarian foundation for the purpose of assisting other NF patients acquire lifesaving medical treatments financially. As a born and bred Malaysian, my 1st inclination was to build the foundation in my birth country, so I set about studying the different laws and legislations for […]
