I'M A CARB-HATING SINGAPOREAN. IS THAT AN OXYMORON? (A DOCTOR'S TAKE ON THE LOW CARB DIET)
January 29th, 2018

In the hierarchy of foods to eat when I'm training for sports and fitness, protein and healthy fats come right at the top, and carbs stay right at the bottom. The less carbs I get in my meal, the better.

I've been asked - "But, DON'T YOU NEED CARBS FOR ENERGY?"

Here's the TLDR answer: No.

THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO SEEING A DERMATOLOGIST IN SINGAPORE (2018)
February 1st, 2018

I'm writing this post because "recommend me a good dermatologist in Singapore" is one of the questions I'm most often asked by friends -  Now I can just direct them to this post.

Incidentally, "dermatologist Singapore" is also one of the most Googled terms in Singapore, receiving over 3700 searches each month - so I figured I'd just help everyone else out by explaining in detail how to find a suitable dermatologist for your condition and treatment needs in Singapore.

8 DOCTOR TRIED-AND-TESTED HANGOVER PREVENTION METHODS
January 29th, 2018

There's actually a medical term for hangovers after drinking - "veisalgia". Most of what you feel during a hangover are down to 2 factors - dehydration, and a toxic byproduct of alcohol called acetaldehyde circulating in your system. In fact, there's an anti-alcohol abuse drug (disulfiram) that works by inhibiting the liver enzyme which breakdowns acetyledehyde. This makes addicts who continue drinking feel like shit even faster.

THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO HEALTH SCREENING IN SINGAPORE
February 1st, 2018

Which health screening tests do you really need? It's a common scenario in Singapore - your dad or mom receives a letter offering free "basic" health screening services, usually in the form of a tie-up with the company where he or she's working at.

So when my dad asked me last night:

What are the essential tests I should go for?

I had a glance through of what was on offer: 5 pages worth of optional add-ons to the free basic screen, ranging from cancer marker tests, to mind-boggling X-Rays and ultrasound scans. This post explains exactly what tests you need, and which you do not.
