Improving our Health by Empowering through Knowledge
A reformed food blogger with a passion for Health&Nutrition, Cancer&Integrated Oncology, People&Coaching, Learning&Thinking and Travel.
I was Group Manager in an MNC for close to a decade. In the course of my career, I have been particularly passionate about:
- Leading and coaching multi-functional teams
- Leading and executing projects helping social causes like Special Olympics, and I was privileged to be featured in both the Singapore and Malaysia Womens’ Weekly for my passion for social causes.
My mum’s Stage 4 Colon Cancer diagnosis in Feb 2014 stopped me in my tracks, and I have been on sabbatical to be her primary caregiver. Since then, she has made an amazing recovery into full remission in under 4 months and you can read more on her recovery journey here.
As I accompanied my mum on her miraculous recovery, I have been blessed to go through my own amazing journey of detox via wholesome foods, alternative treatments and wearing negative ions clothes. I was also very sickly, often being sick once a month at work, though I will still drag myself to work. For the past 4 months, I have only had to take 1 course of antibiotics, which amazing considering I used to be sick every month.
I also went through an emotional detox, being forced to face many fears in my life such as losing a loved one. Even something that use to scare me a lot – Skydiving – has become a lot less scary in retrospect. Hence, I now have a compelling passion now to share health and nutrition knowledge with all of you readers so we can all stay healthy for a thriving life!
I am a junky for new experiences so I want to share our good food and travel experiences (so you don’t have to waste calories and time!). I also hope to save you time from extensive research by curating and documenting our best experiences.
[After I moved out in 2015, my mum became mentally depressed and stopped many of her healthy maintenance protocols listed in this blog and passed away peacefully in Jan 2016. Before her passing, she told me that she regretted not taking care of herself when she had a second chance and told me that I must continue to share with people about Christ and about health maintenance. Truly, to stay healthy is an accumulation of small daily decisions! I hope that her passing would not discourage patients reading this, but instead, learn from her experience to not just recover but to STAY healthy :)]
Hence, my writing will focus on organic/raw/vegan Food (Eat), Health&Cancer as a social cause (Pray) and Travel (Fly).

About The Photographer and Digital Director
My better half takes all the amazing photos you see on EatprayFlying.com. The awesome ones are by him, and the ones with the camera phone are usually by me.
More seriously, N is now the CEO of a leading wellness start-up, Kairos Ygeia Pte Ltd, comprising 4 pillars – 1) natural products, 2) wellness services including detox travels, 3) knowledge and 4) wellness centres.
In his entrepreneurial journey, he was the Co-Founder and Digital Director of Toktog, which has since been acquired by Omnifluence. He later joined Daylight Asia team (Now part of Ruder Finn), providing consultancy to companies on how to best grow their business brands digitally, and also executes the digital business strategy through websites, social media, apps and all things digital. Hence, he set up and manages EatPrayFlying.com’s backend, manages all the coding, aesthetics, layout, navigation and is working to continually improve the website.
Prior to establishing Toktog, he started as a partner in PixSync where his original portfolio was Photography, Sales and Project management, where he worked on big brands like Nestle, Lonsdale, Abbot, Deutsche Bank and JTC. His strength in photography lies in Industrial photography, so EatPrayFlying.com is his platform to pursue his passion in other areas of photography in food, scenic and architecture photography.
For the more philosophical, Eat.Pray.Fly represents our living for a purpose. With our basic needs like eating met, how can we pray and think harder to really fly and soar in life and help others along the way? -ing. because as long as we live, we should not settle for a superficial existence but always aspire to our goals while helping our families and communities.
“We love because he first loved us.” — 1 John 4:19 ESV
