AidsAware behind the scenes

It is truly wonderful to see how far a small organic effort to round up a few celebrities on raising HIV awareness has come. The original idea was to shoot a calendar with 12 personalities on board. Before you knew it, the PT Foundation and Ruumz Causes (who got the whole ball rolling on AidsAware to begin with), and phone calls between the celebs themselves, we managed to confirm an incredible 42 celebrities to be shot for the calendar!!!! And all pro bono of course! Everyone was lending their unique voices and hand written messages to this campaign. The photos …

Trouble sleeping at night?

I was cracking my head over the next topic I wanted to write about, when I was recently interviewing someone who had reddish eyes and he told me, before the cameras started rolling, "it's been months since I've had a good night's rest. It's one of the worst things being sooo tired but not being able to sleep" and then I had it! I knew that insomnia was what I wanted to write about. There's more than one type of insomnia so even if you aren't a chronic case, doesn't mean we can't fall into it depending on life's events. …

Why compare yourself to another person?

There's always going to be someone out there who's "better" than you in some way. They could be smarter, richer, more attractive, more successful, in a job you always wanted or with a partner you only dreamed of. When you focus on what you "don't have", the list could be endless and it makes you feel inadequate, insecure. Over time, it can make you a bitter, unpleasant person to be around because you're deep down unhappy and dissatisfied with your life. Nothing is ever enough. Like the bottomless soda you ordered but you're always left thirsting for more. But now, …

I have really gotten into…

SQUASH! I have been playing a lot of Squash lately. If I had to describe how tiring it was, I would start swearing hehe coz it can make my heart pound on court rushing to get the ball. I'll politely say instead that it's an incredible workout and massive calorie burner, wow! I'm actually a tennis player (still am). I know it must look odd but I'm still using my double handed tennis backhand on a squash court. It's by sheer reflex haha but it gets the ball back 😉 I wanted to say that exercise makes you feel FANTASTIC …

Are you Depressed?

I've started receiving all kinds of letters from people suffering in Depression. It is unhealthy to wallow alone. It's good to talk about it, read positive books and choose positive company. Everything begins with the mind. It's easier said than done but we have to choose positive thoughts...if you haven't read it yet, here's my column in today's Star on depression. Depression is nobody’s friend A DIFFERENT SPIN By JO-JO STRUYS According to the World Health Organisation, depression affects more than 120 million people around the world.

My school got vandalised. Solving the mystery of the note Part 3

I was told to be very careful though the teen in question had never been committed for any assault or violence (phew! coz I didn't want to be looking over my shoulder). However, he had been expelled from his previous school for rebellious behaviour and graffiti. The Police told me to inform them if he tried contacting me but he never did. A year and a half later, I left Singapore to study in Australia. Can you believe it? I ran into him in Perth! He said, "hey Jojo, did you get my message?" He was blatantly referring to the …
