Last September, we had the opportunity to go for a short but very fun holiday in Melaka. We brought our respective families along as well. We stayed at the very nice Hatten Hotel right in the heart of Melaka town .

Meeting in Seefeld,Germany

Blogged under Dental Education by DrJean on Tuesday 28 August 2012 at 3:00 am

I was invited to attend a meeting in Munich,Germany in July this year,where 16 of us from 9 Asia Pacific countries got together to learn and share our knowledge on the advancements in dentistry.  Among us were academicians from universities and clinicians from private practices. I was truly privileged to be part of this group.

I was also given the opportunity to give a short presentation on preventive dentistry in my daily practice.


We were also showered with warm German hospitality and we had time to get to know our fellow Apac dental colleauges.

It was both work and play and altogether a very enriching and memorable experience.





Holiday in Hong Kong

My eldest daughter and I planned a short holiday together during her college semester break last June.
It was an opportunity for mother and daughter to just spend some fun quality time together in the midst of all our busy schedules.
We had lots of food..
We did some touristy things together.

It was a lovely lovely time together with Tjia-Ern and we are looking forward to more times like this.

2012 Commonwealth Dental Association/Malaysian Dental Association/FDI World Dental federation International Scientific Convention and Trade Exhibiton cum 69th MDA AGM

I just attended the 2012 Commonwealth Dental Association/Malaysian Dental Association/FDI World Dental federation International Scientific Convention and Trade Exhibiton cum 69th MDA AGM at the Borneo Convention Center in Kuching,Sarawak last weekend.The title was “Bridging Technologies: Past,Present & Future”

It was an excellent meeting and I learnt a lot from the numerous speakers who spoke on very relevant topics. There is much that I have taken back with me to be applied in my practice.Kudos to the Eastern Zone MDA Committee for organizing such a successful conference.
I must add here that I am beginning to like visiting Sarawak very much. It is refreshingly different from the hustle and bustle of the Klang Valley(PJ and KL) .



And I have made some very very good friends who always welcome me with warmth and hospitality par excellence. I had the opportunity to enjoy a bit of Kuching food and hospitality together with my husband,who came along with me on this trip. We love the Dayak food ,the famous Sarawak laksa, the Foochow noodles etc!


And we also stayed back one day in Kuching after the conference to  do training for leaders on how to run  The Parenting Course .


It was a very fruitful trip….but I missed my children, and it made me decide that the next time I will bring the whole family along for such trips!









Another year and I am celebrating my anniversary again…

How time flies….

I thought I had just posted some photos on my last anniversary trip to Macau and HongKong and  now,I just came back from another trip away with dear husband for our 19th anniversary.

We went to Phuket for a very nice 3-day break . I am thankful that I can go off for breaks and holidays knowing that I have my associates and staff in the clinic who will take good care of things for me.

We rented a motorcycle (which was quite a common thing to do on Phuket island if you want to get around) and did some serious road trips!




Then of course there is glorious Thai food!!








Celebrating 6 good years together

Blogged under iSmile team by DrJean on Monday 21 May 2012 at 7:20 am

End of May 2012 will mark six years since iSmile was established. I am just so thankful, to God for His goodness in my life ,and to the people who have been part of my life in iSmile. These would include my family (immediate and extended) ,my wonderful staff whom without them I would not be able to do the work that I love and of course my customers whom I am always so thankful for. I am blessed to have customers who appreciate the work that we do in iSmile and constantly encouraging us by trying to comply with what we educate them on regarding their oral health . Not only that,many of them are so kind as to recommend their friends to us as well.

I had the privilege of taking my wonderful staff together with their spouses and partners to celebrate in a dinner in KL recently .





IDEM 2012

Blogged under Dental Education,Personal by DrJean on Sunday 20 May 2012 at 4:34 am

I managed to attend the International Dental Exhibition and Meeting this year in Singapore in April. It was quite a struggle for me though, to be away from my baby for the first time since I gave birth last August .
That aside,it was a good time of learning and catching up with dental colleagues.

I had 2 of my associates Dr Amy and Dr Ling,with me.







Happy 2012

Blogged under Family by DrJean on Sunday 1 January 2012 at 4:34 am

It’s another new year! Wow,I was just trying to catch up with the past few months that seemed to be whizzing past me and before I know it,the year 2011 had come to an end!

The year that passed has been a very eventful year,the highlight being Tjia-Xin,who turns 5 months old in a few days time,the latest addition to our family 🙂

I am really thankful for good health,that at my not-so-young age,I went through a easy and comfortable pregnancy and labor.
And its really great to have so many helpers around the house.


Well,2012 is definitely going to be exciting!

My annual anniversary get-away

Blogged under Family by DrJean on Wednesday 18 May 2011 at 8:36 am

I just came back from a short but superb holiday together with my husband of 18 years. We try to make it a point to go away somewhere by ourselves during this time of the year to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is usually just a 3 or 4- day trip but it is always such a wonderful experience and we come home knowing that we are rejuvenated in our relationship. Our children can see that too and it is one of the best ways to assure them and to give them a sense of security.
Some holiday photos in Macau and Hong Kong to share,mostly of us eating!

We had one of the best Portuguese egg tarts I’ve ever tasted,in this quaint little village at the southern tip of Macau,called Coloane.
