Get Screened for Cervical Cancer – Free Until 31 August

My friend’s mother passed from cervical cancer at age 50. At the time, my friend and I had just graduated from uni. It came as a great shock because my friend’s father was a renowned TCM doctor. But it turned out that her mother never had a Pap smear before. By the time the cancer was discovered, it was too late. According to the US Centers for Disease Control, up to 93% of cervical cancers could be prevented by proper screening and other preventative measures.

Don’t Wait to Use Your SkillsFuture Credit

Change is uncomfortable but necessary for growth. Although emerging technologies have disrupted many jobs, they have also opened up new careers that didn’t exist before. When doctors now enter medical school, they are told that much of what they learn will be obsolete within a few years of graduation. The rate of change in this world is accelerating, and everything we know or are comfortable with has a shorter “expiration date”. These are just the circumstances we live in today, whether we like it or not. And although we may have already finished our formal education and started our careers, we now need to become lifetime learners, acquiring new skills while we are still gainfully employed. This allows us to remain relevant despite the widening digital divide and rapidly changing employment landscape.

Rent or Lend Stuff with Lendor, the Peer-to-Peer Library of Things App

As I mentioned in a previous article, the stuff that you own continuously consumes money, space, and/or resources, whether you actually use it or not. It’s not always ideal to buy and own something (and this includes property). Often an item is bought to ensure access to it, but sufficient access can be achieved without all the downsides of ownership, such as the purchase cost, burden of full responsibility, and underutilisation, where the item sits around collecting dust. Collective consumption, where there are many users who share access, reduces the downsides of ownership and is also more eco-friendly. This is where the Lendor App comes in, as it connects suppliers of rental assets with consumers who wish to borrow those assets. Here’s why you should try them.  (more…)

Surprise Your Loved Ones with Easy-to-Order Bouquets Delivered FREE Islandwide

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and as society is becoming more gender balanced, would you consider giving flowers to your dad? I did (once), and my dad, who is normally expressionless, was overly delighted. He said it made him feel special and happy because never in his lifetime had anyone sent him flowers. With more than 7 decades of living, for him to receive flowers for “the first time” made the occasion not just extraordinary, but unforgettable. (more…)

Money Hacks for People with Diabetes in Singapore

Having diabetes not only comes with a diminished quality of life and social stigma, but it can also be a heavy financial burden. And as any good financial advisor will tell you, wealth planning is not complete without health planning. According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), diabetes is the 2nd leading cause of death in Singapore. Last year, MOH declared a “war on diabetes“, and together with the Health Promotion Board (HPB), they’ve put programmes into place to make healthier food options and exercise more available and more affordable. They have also reduced the cost of diabetes screening and medications. In addition to these, here are some other ways for people with diabetes to control costs. (more…)
