20 years ago.. I lost my legs in a 6-hour surgery on October 1st 2003. It was a foreboding task for my neurosurgeon Dr. Richard Veerapen and his medical team at Sunway Medical Centre. They opened up my spine to discover a huge mess of scar tissues, old tumours, new...

Each of the 62 ship’s wheels represents a vessel with hundreds of sailors, who have been murdered before they could find their way back to their loved ones, and in today’s context, also a reflection of the fears of those who have tested positive for Covid-19.
“Their souls followed the pirate’s daughter because she truly understood what it was to never go home,” Liang told theSun.
The collection of maritime artifacts that her father had placed in a makeshift attic space pleaded to be redeemed.

“The Pirate’s Daughter is about healing from dark times.

Bald Empathy Movement turns 10 today.. Throwback to May 16th 2011, Poesy shaved off her hair at the 64th Cannes Film Festival after touring the project through 3 continents..
2012 was a very difficult year for me – I was contemplating suicide. That year 2 cats came into my life; one was feimao Saiwan and the other was Harry Putter.

Thank you Oriental Daily News & The Artisans Haven.
