Ho Ho Ho! The queue of people lining up to get a shot with Santa is snaking down around the corner so I guess it’s getting close to the end of the year. I know for a lot of people, myself included, that it has been a big year. I hope you get the chance to take a little (or preferably a lot) time off over the Christmas Period to recover and recharge for 2014.
I will be working up until the 23rd of December and then taking the rest of …
After unsuccessfully attempting to become a professional golfer recently, I thought I’d continue to explore what professional sporting options I still have before I’m past it, and so on the weekend I took to Eastern Creek raceway to do a session in the Formula Ford’s. For those who don’t know (like myself before last weekend) these are the cars Mark Webber drove before he got into Formula 1.
The Aim: I figured I’d just nail a few hot laps and sign on the dotted line with, well, whoever would offer me …
Anyone who has been to see me in the last month would know all about the golf game I was preparing for. The game was yesterday and whilst we gave a good account of ourselves we were absolutely hammered by a team of total burglars. Therefore I will not be resigning to join the PGA Tour and will remain an Osteopath for the time being.
I was lucky enough to be able to get out of town on the weekend and head down to Canberra. A short trip but long enough to remind me that there are some do’s and don’t’s when it comes to driving:
When you first hop in the car, sit up nice and straight and set your rear view mirror and side mirrors. If you notice after a while that the mirror position is no longer suitable, you must have either shifted in your seat or started slumping. Either sit up straight …
Pictured is Joycey, my grandmother, who came to visit me in Singapore. She could only stay 36 hours as she was on her way to Budapest to get on a cruise that went through Austria, Germany, The Netherlands etc. As you do. She is enjoying a Singapore Sling (the first of many that day I’d like to point out) at the famous Raffles Long Bar.
Working as an Osteopath in Singapore was very different to working in Sydney. In Sydney the average person at least knows what an Osteopath is for …
Hi! Thanks for being patient with me, I know from the calls, emails, and the waiting list that there are a few of you out there hoping I’ll be starting back soon and I have good news – I spoke to someone at the registration board yesterday and my return to work is imminent! I will be going back to Bondi Junction to my old clinic, I have that funky picture of the castle already hung, and a fresh batch of pool noodles to hand out for rolling on.
Just to …
I’m very excited to tell you that I will be returning to Sydney in early 2013. My girlfriend has scored an amazing job back in Sydney so I’ll be shutting the doors of my Singapore clinic and moving back to Bondi Junction. There’s no place like home!
Hopefully the picture of that castle in Germany has remained intact. Keep checking in for updates on starting times and when you can start making appointments. Hope you all have a great holiday period and I look forward to seeing you all in the …

Is your child laying awake at night coughing and you’re not sure what to do? A new study has found that honey can be used as an alternative to cough syrups etc for young children suffering from Upper Respiratory Infections (URI).
The study involved 300 children aged 1-5 over the period of a year. The children were given a single dose of 10 g of eucalyptus honey, citrus honey, labiatae honey. I personally have had great results with Manuka honey so would have loved to have seen how effective that was, knowing …
We are conducting a survey regarding the health habits of students in Singapore, so if you are the parent of a child attending school here we would greatly appreciate you helping us with our research. The more answers we can get the better, so by all means forward this to any other interested parents you may know.
Your answers will help us put the finishing touches on a talk and booklet we are preparing which looks at the links between diet, posture and exercise on the health, happiness and academic performance …
