Stronger through fitness

Fitness has been a huge part of my life after the Big-C, and I can safely say I am stronger because of it. After my surgeries, not only did I lose my core strength, but my entire body was very weak because I lacked nutrients due to the colostomy bag. During the first year, walking was all I could do and Tenji helped me with that. Due to the fact I had to walk her, I was able to gain stamina. Then after my first year, I transition to jogging with her, and by the second year running. At first, I only did cardio form of exercises such as running. I realize I wasn't gaining strength or putting on weight. Then after that,...

Living life with Stage 4 breast cancer

I promised I would write about Christy who is a stage 4 breast cancer patient on my Facebook recently. One of the main reasons is how I am so in awe with her story and her optimism. Diagnosis Christy here found out she had breast cancer through a routine check in October 2016. Due to financial and emotional stress from her divorce, she felt that had a huge impact on her getting breast cancer. She couldn't accept her diagnosis at first,  but she finally did when she found out that the cancer had spread to her liver. In early 2017, she got her left breast removed along with her lymph nodes. After chemotherapy, she found out her  cancer had spread to her neck,...

What is cancer immunotherapy?

We know that cancer is rising in Malaysia and other countries, and the treatments available. One of the available options in some countries is cancer immunotherapy, but what is it? I learnt alot about it at IEEPO 2018 in Greece with 54 countries in attendance. Little ol me represented Malaysia to be there. The layman definition is below: Basically using your own immune system to attack cancer cells, and it works better for certain types of cancer, i.e., colorectal, lung Many pharmaceutical companies who have done research in this area are embarking on awareness of cancer immunotherapy. However, there are problems such as: Biggest one is financial because cost of immunotherapy is high Access to treatment Awareness of what it is There were some...

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...

Do your bit for charity – The Therapy First Serum by The Face Shop

The Face Shop has just relaunched their Therapy First Serum which is pretty much a miraculous product! Not only have they relaunched it, but with a good cause attached to it. You can be a beauty and support on a cause on top of that too *wink* . I'm all onboard this because the aim for the cause is to raise cancer awareness as any purchase of the bottle of The Therapy First Serum (RM148.29), RM15 will be donated to a cancer organization AND you get another The Therapy First Serum! What this means is that it's Buy ONE, get the 2nd one FREE, you will get a pouch(pic below), and part of the proceeds(RM15) goes to support a cancer...

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...

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...

Challenges faced starting a Youth support group for cancer patients and survivors in Malaysia

Many of you who have been following my social media feed know about my passion to raise cancer awareness and I've been doing it through the National Cancer society of Malaysia. Recently, I've started a youth support group for cancer patients, and survivors from the age of 15 to 35 since the third quarter of 2016. One of the main reasons I wanted to start it was because while I was experiencing cancer, I felt very alone in the journey while wearing a colostomy bag and wanted someone in my age group I could speak to. However, I couldn't find anyone as most of the people wearing a colostomy bag were mostly 60 and above. That was when google became my best...
