Hi Friends

On 8 Jan 2013, it was a beautiful where I had a meeting in the morning at 10:30am. Unfortunately, I felt uncomfortable suddenly and I admit myself to National Cancer Centre as there were signs of a possible relapse of my kidney cancer. It has been 2 years since I had my mango-size tumour removed, but during that moment, my mind ran wild. For the next remaining day, I was running between National Cancer Centre and Urology Centre (in SGH) trying to get a chance to see a doctor, and eventually I did. I was scheduled to go through a series of blood tests, urine tests, Ultrasound Scan & CT Scans. A couple of doses of medicine from my regular doctor makes me feel better. It wasn’t a good feeling but it was a great reminder about life.

For the next few weeks, life went on as usual and when I posted some updates of my episodes on Facebook, I started to receive lots of care and concerns from my friends. See some of my Facebook status comments on my posts:

Coincidentally. most of them are my current or past NLP Participants. I was really really touched. In addition, I get surprise smses, calls and even visits at my office. It’s during such difficult times where I know how I have treated people in the past just based on their care and concerns.

As I had my tests done throughout the weeks that follow,  I continued to do what I love – had a large batch of Value Investing Programme (VIP) done, conducted numerous speaking engagements and last day of NLP Swish 23:


With all these engagements going on, the most touching moments took place on 26th Jan 2013 where I was running last day of my NLP Training for Batch Swish 23. The training ended around 5:30pm where suddenly, one of the participant, Harry, said that he is something to share. He plugged his thumbdrive into my laptop and he started playing a short video clip from the movie Rocky:

I was so focused on the video that I did not realized that some of them already positioned themselves to do something that was simply crazy: 

Guess what they were preparing to do when they turn over? An NLP Skit!!!! YES!! An NLP Skit. It was HILARIOUS!! At the same time, it was so touching of them to take time off their family and work to run rehearsals for this skit:

When the skit was over, I was on my feet, laughing. It was too hard to bear.

Then suddenly, another NLP friend of ours called Cassandra came up said something that eventually put me to tears and at that moment, Ken came up simultaneously and presented a card that was specially designed to motivate me:


That’s how the card looks like:


Our Parting Shot to the Wonderful People who have contributed to the Skit, not forgetting the rest of the class who were there to brighten up the entire room:


Last point that I wish to share that, of all the 1001 reasons why I could hang on to my passion for so loooong is simply this – I am always surrounded by friends who really appreciate what I do ….. with all my heart!

Have a GREAT Week ahead!
