Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. We've been here before, I like it. Ubud is quite different to the Bali beach holiday popular in Australia, it has old world charm with temples. Still overrun with tourists you must use your imagination to try and depart the western world. But it has cues to make such an escape easier,... Continue Reading →


It's been around 6 years since my coma, we should remember that recovery is extremely slow and you must encourage it through repetition. This is what I learnt during my recovery. I have tried walking without a stick on and off since coming back to Singapore 5 years ago. By this repetition my walking has... Continue Reading →


'Ghosts in the Shell' is a film about the human brain transplanted into a robot. They are doing similar things today in medicine, amputees brains controlling artificial limbs.

Dear fellow coma victims, as I've said before I suspect travel is very good for us. What I really mean is to do the things like we did before coma, stay active. Travel also presents the unusual which can be challenging, we need to be challenged. I'm in AoNang Thailand for another Christmas, at least... Continue Reading →


We humans should act collectively in the hope of change. There are several online organisations that hope to offer solutions to our many problems, for example Venus and EOS. Sure it’s been important for us humans to rally. Indeed many people perceive the various threats today, the biggest being global warming. Perhaps crypto currency offers a way  to...

Blockchain and cryptocurrency... It seems AltCoin has had less interest than Bitcoin which may have become more controlled by the powers that be, or maybe not and both remain uncontrolled by government.
