1 in 3 Singaporeans will be diabetic. 3 amputations daily due to diabetes.
Compassion without wisdom is stupidity.
Be proud of being Chinese. Be a Chinese with an English name and not an English with a Chinese name.

Filial piety. Never forget your parents.
No one should ever be bored, always kick yourself, go out there and do something. Even if you have to do it alone.
