Hi, I am Summer Lotus@rosalindho and that is my pen name. It is directly translated from my Chinese name which means Summer and Lotus.
I am a dentist by profession and am practicing in Singapore for the past 35 years. I love my career very much because of digital technology and advances in material sciences and techniques which have made my job easier and more enjoyable.
My philosophy is to do what I love as work and do more of what I love outside my work. They are writing, which is my latest craze as well as continuing my travels (once Covid-19 blows over), learning about technology and new gadgets.
My other interests include learning and improving my languages such as Mandarin, Japanese as well as English and poetry writing. I believe that the ability to express succinctly and appropriately is the most satisfying skill in my life.
For sports, I have dabbled in scuba-diving, and rock-climbing and have had the fortune to travel to many beautiful diving destinations as well as participated in some dive cruises.
As I come from a tropical country, skiing is my most challenging sport but I still attempt it at least once a year, especially in Japan. Currently, I am into indoor rock climbing and find it very appealing and challenging as a senior to attempt this sport.
I love to challenge myself and push the boundaries a little at a time. Every day is a gift and life has so much to offer that I have no time for sick leave or complaints. My job is to solve other people’s discomfort and pain and that is what I am passionate about.
I have done about 200 articles on medium.com but with not much viewership. However, this shows that I need to try harder, read more, and learn from other authors who have got the right formula.
More about me from this medium article titled “ Childhood Days In Old Singapore”.
