Young Male Doctors

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 06:14:27 +0000

Yesterday my escort PA and I spent a whole day at Assunta Hospital to get an MRI of my right arm done. It took 2 technicians and a few nurses who constantly moved back and forth between the computer stations and the MRI machine over 4 hours to complete the test. This wasn’t an examination […]

My mother had surgery to replace missing cartilage in both of her knees on 13th May 2017 at the nearby Assunta Hospital. Her youngest sister take for her surgery and stayed with us to take care of my mom for 3 weeks since my vision is not impaired. The surgery was successful but very painful […]



Be Brave

I want to emphasize on this Number 1 survival skill for Neurofibromatosis patients. I will say it quick and straight to point so it hits home. The first thing to do is find a surgeon who can remove a specific tumor safely. Remove the tumor surgically once and for all safely. Neurosurgical skills today is […]

Portraits of Myself

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 08:09:04 +0000

It must have been my early life experience as a ballerina and Aunt Ivy’s buying off pretty dresses for me as a child. I like to have my portrait taken for some reasons and those must have been the reasons. I have a deformed left eye but I do not mind it. I have a […]



Entrepreneurial By Chance

Sat, 08 Apr 2017 08:29:40 +0000

Long ago, way before I developed neurofibromatosis, I wanted to be a psychologist to help people. I just wanted to help people with no concern about the salary. Later in my teens, I considered majoring in social work in college and serve the community humbly. I knew pay would not be much. I would be […]



Belief and Trust

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 07:35:57 +0000

They say that learning is a lifelong journey for many things. For me, that includes believing and trusting another person with major undertakings of my life. By the trick of circumstances, I grew up to be an independent, self reliant and autonomous person. It helped me to progress fast on my own. Finally switching to […]



Changing Rhythm

Being physically limited may not be a bad thing sometimes. Helps me to slow down and be more relaxed. I used to be a neurotic person who not only stress myself but the people around me too. I have learned to be calmer and slower. While I do this, I noticed that others are living […]

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:17:26 +0000

Recently, a parent of an NF2 patient drew my attention to a blog post with my story together with a product called Prolife Energy. I wish to clearly state that I have never used this product. Someone invited my mother and I to a place to try it one day in 2011. When someone at […]
