Author(s): Prof Philip Iau
ISBN: 978 981 4779 30 2

The Long Ride from Singapore

In 2014, breast surgeons Philip Iau and Mikael Hartman from the breast cancer team at Singapore’s National University Hospital set off on an epic journey by motorcycle from Singapore to Stockholm over 100 days. It was a ride with a cause to meet breast cancer patients across different Asian countries and understand how cultural factors shape attitudes to the disease. Spanning 17 countries and the entire sweep of the Silk Road, this was more than the run-of-the-mill adventure holiday. Then things start to go seriously wrong, and the Long Ride becomes more about overcoming the odds than ever intended. Compellingly narrated and movingly portrayed, this is an unforgettable story of fear, courage, growth, acceptance and wisdom.

Behind every *itch is a Back Story: The struggles of growing up with rash

Author(s): Daniel Boey
ISBN: 978 981 4779 26 5

Behind every *itch is a Back Story

In this hilarious tell-all, Singapore’s Godfather of Fashion, Daniel Boey talks about his personal experiences struggling with allergies. He was slathered in calamine lotion as a child, was teased and felt awkward in school, had terrible reactions during National Service, partied hard in university and finished it with a rashy bang. More obstacles were in store as he climbed up the fashion ladder, all whilst managing his skin and sinus with medicine, treatments and remedies. Nevertheless, with a little help from his friends, he finds that life can still be adventurous and fabulous despite these allergies. Through it all, he proves to himself and others that attitude is more important than appearance. Never losing enthusiasm, Boey carries on with a hop and a skip and a pouch full of pills.
