1. The basics
This is my personal blog. I want to explore the mystery of life. To find joy and happiness are what I seek.
🙋🏻 PreAlthea: ‘Pre-’ means the before of an event. ‘Althea’ came from the Greek verb which means ‘to heal’. Together, it stands for my journey before I can become a healer with the power of science 🙂

I blog a little about everything – which will include my travels, science, life in general and university.
I’m personally interested in cancer, the pathways that lead to cancer and cancer treatment. I’m working hard to become a cancer scientist. Working in an oncology lab is my dream.
Since I will have to read cancer-related articles, I will probably post quite a bit of cancer-related posts on this blog. If anyone reads it, hopefully, it would be of some use to you. Cancer is a devastating disease and knowing more about it always helps.
I’ve travelled to many different places since I was young. I’m considered blessed because my parents bring me overseas frequently.
Now that I’m 20, I want to explore the world even more. As a student studying overseas, it would be the best time to explore the United Kingdom!
I will blog about special places that I will be visiting, and fun places to go that doesn’t cost much. Most trips would be day trip because I am on a tight budget (poor student hereT_T).
Currently, my favourite country would be Taiwan. I love the food and the weather! It’s cheap to shop there too.
I’m currently studying at the University of Dundee, doing the 4 years Biomedical Science programme. But I’m not really doing the full 4 years, I’m a direct year 3 entrant. Which means I will only have to study for 2 years in University to graduate thanks to my Diploma in Biomedical Sciences.
I love science, especially the field of oncology. I find the unknown fascinating. My dream is to one day contribute to the knowledge in the field of oncology which will hopefully reduce the amount of suffering in cancer patients.
I’m not a good person to rate food. I’m a fussy eater that would not touch any food that contains ingredient(s) that I dislike. I have a weird taste which many people cannot agree one.
One special fact: I hate cheese, and never eaten a slice of pizza in my entire life.
My favourite foods include meat, instant noodles, seafood and CHILLI!
6. Old Posts
I decided to export all of my old blogs entries and import them here. Started this in April 2018 and I expect to finish all the importing and organising by June 2018. It will include my LiveJournal from primary school, many Blogspot from secondary school till poly, and Dayre that I used from Poly Yr3 till University. I know I left out some blogs but I could not access those since I lost the email associated with it. Which is super sad TBH.
Some posts are protected because of my immaturity back then. Most are just rants so I password protected it. I have no intention of giving out the password and don’t even try because you won’t guess it. I won’t delete those posts though since they are still part and parcel of my life and signifies my growth.
I had categorized my posts accordingly. You can read my primary school blog posts, secondary school blog posts, poly (yr1 till early yr3) blog posts and Dayre posts by clicking on the link. You can also view it by using the toolbar above and navigate to Lifestyle > Others.
Just a warning, the older you go, the more cancerous my English becomes. I have no intention of editing the obvious grammar and spelling errors because that was how bad my English used to be and I want to keep that memory.
Also, if you are featured (not many people are) and you want it privatized, please tell me. I will be reading through every post to make sure it is good to be public but I might miss out some. If you caught a post that is scolding someone obviously, please tell me too.
