Thank you 2017, Hello 2018!

Everyone has been writing how they felt about 2017, but all I can say is Thank you 2017! I've learnt and grown so much in just one year and here's WHY : Health has always been my priority since the Big-C, and last year was a forefront for me. From working out twice a week, I to up the ante to four times a week consistently and even work out at least twice a week when I travel. I cannot be more thankful that I am able to do sit-ups again because I LOST ALL core strength after cancer. I am much stronger now and at my healthiest weight since I was born!  I combine weights with cardio nowadays Eating clean such...

Nutrition for my skin – Oskia London by Caliata Beauty

Our skin which is the largest organ in our body is just like any part of our body. It needs TLC which means it needs nutrients, vitamins, and supplements to restore and renew cells. Oskia London which is a bio-active nutritional skincare is now in Malaysia! Caliata is a beauty website that sources nature-inspired, effective skincare from Europe and USA cult brands and brings it here to Malaysia!! Yay! That's how I found out about Oskia London and how they manage to restore glowing skin through bio-active nutrients. I am constantly afraid to put European products on my skin because I feel it doesn't suit Asian skin, but it wasn't the case with brands from Caliata. Since trying Oskia London out starting from it's...

Natural Products for your hair and scalp – Viege at Aki Hair Studio

Do you experience oily scalp as you grow older or is it due to the Malaysian heat? When I was staying in the hospital for 18 days during my surgeries, I started having oily hair and scalp. Since then, I've been trying to solve it and  found a solution recently. To my delight, it was made of all types of vegetables and natural. Contrary to what we believe, oily scalp actually produces dandruff for us which is what I experienced. I would be really embarrassed because at that point of time, not only was I super thin due to the colostomy bag, but my hair was flaking!! You guys would know that I head to Aki Hair studio when it comes...

It’s YOUR life, why take a chance?

Exactly what the title means, why would you take a chance with your life? As women, we believe in stereotypes that we are caregivers, and nurturers which make us think of others around us more than ourselves. That is the reason why the term 'Superwoman' exists because they can work full day, yet come home to care for their children, sometimes parents, cook and even clean. There have been so many times we, as females neglect ourselves from how we look to a major thing we always overlook, our HEALTH! Did you know that every day, six new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed in Malaysia? It is also the second most common cancer amongst females in Malaysia. Many of...

The Taboo called ‘cancer’

Recent events have encouraged me to write this post because of the challenges I've been facing due to cultural taboos. I did think more than twice on how I should write this, and whether I should or not. My intuition tells me I should and here I am writing this for those who have friends or family who is currently having cancer at a young age. I believe I have mentioned in my interviews with publications and newspapers that I felt very ALONE while I was wearing the colostomy bag, and even during recovery. I've searched online countless times for a support group in Malaysia because I wanted to speak to someone MY age who was going through this. However, most...

Healthy diet for cancer patients and survivors

A healthy diet is something I preach every single day to everyone around me ( I apologize if I nag sometimes), but YOU are what YOU eat! Of course, it got me thinking along the lines of sharing it with the other young cancer survivors and patients as we have a whole life ahead of us, and we have to prevent a relapse from happeming. Plus, learning how to cook our own meals means that we know exactly what we are putting in our mouths. That's exactly what happened, NCSM along with Panasonic Malaysia organized a cooking class with a healthy 3 course meal for our young cancer patients and survivors support group. They could bring their caretakers along to learn as...

What disease may be a silent killer?

Being a health advocate, I lead a pretty healthy lifestyle (or I would like to think), such as eating right (more fruits and vegetables, hardly any red meat or oily food), exercising and trying to reduce stress. Even prior to having cancer, I lead this type of lifestyle except less exercising and I was sometimes overwhelmed with stress. Although cancer came as a shocker, and I started changing my lifestyle after to prevent a relapse, my mom throughout the entire time for the past 10 years has been living with Type 2 Diabetes. When we first found out, all of us tried to encourage her to change her habits especially eating less carbohydrates and sweet things. However, as the years went...
