THERE ARE DAYS when I stop to reflect about life, and of the choices I have made. My decision to pursue occupational therapy has always been and is still one of the best choices I have made in my 26 years.  Yesterday echoes the heartwarming sentiment I feel whenever I speak of my profession. A […]

7 Principles for Successful Return to Work: A Guide for Occupational Therapists in Singapore is a free publication by Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and Singapore Association of Occupational Therapists (SAOT).    This guide was developed to help occupational therapists in Singapore understand their roles in facilitating return to work (RTW) at different stages of an injured worker’s […]

MY TEN-MINUTE of so-called fame on television was probably the highlight of my weekend.  I was fortunate to have been given the opportunity for an interview by the malay primetime news Berita on Suria channel (only because I was malay-speaking haha). It has come to the attention of the reporter about the rising incident of accidents […]

The population is ageing and already it is not uncommon to see your average wheelchair or motorised scooter being used in public. Lovely how JurongHealth has recently launched a mobility park to help patients learn how to use public transport confidently. I think it is an excellent initiative, particularly so within the grounds of the rehabilitation facility – […]

THAT IS ONE item checked off my bucket list – doing a wheelchair wheelie. That means balancing on the rear wheels of a wheelchair. Over the course of the last week, we had the pleasure of hosting the good people from the Wheelchair Skills Program (WSP) as part of the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) Healthcare […]

The water pipes are mostly covered beneath ground, but there are […]

Could not have picked a better venue and age. The Oasia Hotel, located in the heart of Novena, offered a very convenient location. The […]

MY LITTLE GIRL fantasy fulfilled. I swam with dolphins 🐬🐬🐬 Okay, not really swim but an underwater experience with my favourite mammals! Diving is not a requirement in the Dolphin TREK encounter. It involves the Sea TREK® helmet which has a backpack of sorts supplying continuous air supply. Where at? The Dolphin Island at Resorts World Sentosa. Don’t […]

Climbing? Climb on! Here are my favourite local haunts for climbing and bouldering: 1. Climb Asia @ Civil Service Club http://climb-asia.com/home/news Best for its bouldering walls, I love lounging about its space with my friends mapping out routes and just cheering each other on. Climb Asia also features an indoor 9m wall (18 lanes) + outdoor 15m […]

THE ISSUE WITH powered mobility is a complicated one. No doubt that the average powered wheelchair or scooter has the ability to transform lives of its users – an elderly man with osteoarthritic knees who has difficulty walking long-distance for medical appointments, the middle-aged housewife with poor endurance from a heart condition needs to go marketing, […]
