Interview by local lifestyle blogger Priscilla Chew

Why did I dedicate my quest to run 7 marathons on 7 continents to my late-grandmother? My answer to local lifestyle blogger Priscilla Chew's question and other Q&As are in this interview.

 

An excerpt:

"My grandmother was and remains the strongest woman I’ve known in my life. To have lived through two World Wars and single-handedly raising two children on her own with limited means (Ah Ma’s husband passed away early), hardened her personality......She played a key role in bringing me up and part of who I am is a result of Ah Ma’s upbringing. I didn’t get a chance to be a filial granddaughter to her in my rebellious teenage years......and I’ve always regretted this after she passed away......Running in honour for her is my way of paying my tribute to her, remembering her and also showing her that I’ve taken on some of her characteristic traits......"
