Thanks for having me TEDxYouth@Singapore!
Kareen and I are in Nuyou Magazine this month! (February Issue). I never knew I could look like this. This must be my most handsome photo ever haha
Hey guys, I’m back from my trip to Boston and Bangkok! A few exciting things happened while I was away – making me regret I left Singapore… but oh well.
1. The Last Kopitiam at the Affordable Art Fair 2013
2. DUDE.SG in Female Magazine, December Issue
Along with Dawn Ng and Benjamin Hampe! Yea, go grab a copy of this month’s issue of Female! Thank you Female!
3. Little India Riot
Although regretful, this must have been the biggest news for Singapore all year! I was observing the not-as-exciting protests in Bangkok while all that was happening back home.
Happy holidays everyone!
A big thank you to all who contributed on Stay Strong, this post is dedicated to you! (Your names are below!) Kareen and I are deeply touched by the generous support you have shown us. You have helped to pay for Kareen’s medical expenses with excess to be donated to The Lupus Association of Singapore! Your kindness has been picked up by the local press and I am proud to share the article with you.
The New Paper has done a good job in raising Lupus awareness with this article. An incurable disease a handful of people suffer from – 99% of lupus patients are female. I am very encouraged, both as an artist and a person, to see my work actually helping someone I love so much.
*UPDATE* Lian He Wan Bao, shared our story too!

Our love goes out to all contributors:
Four nights ago, I made a donation webstie, Stay.Strong.sg, to raise funds to pay for my girlfriend, Kareen Chin’s, medical expenses. She was warded at Tan Tock Seng hospital on the 9th of October for Bacterial Meningitis (Brain Infection) and will hopefully be discharged by the 25th of October with an estimated bill of SGD$10,000.
Her case is difficult for the doctors because she also has Lupus, an auto immune disease, where her immunity system would attack healthy cells and cause organ failure. There is no known cure for Lupus so she has been taking medication to suppress her immunity system. Her low immunity system causes her to be susceptible to all types of infections – this time she got the worse kind, an brain infection. Lupus is also the reason why she does not have insurance as no one wants to insure a lupus patient.
The doctors have put her on three types of antibiotics because they are not sure what is the nature of her infection and they seem to be working. Her headaches have stopped though she still has fever and muscle aches. It breaks my heart to see her so weak.
Thank you so much to all the contributors on Strong.sg, we are now at 66% to our goal. Your generous donations means a lot to the both of us!
