By far, I think the most popular and most read post in my blog would be none other than the healer extraordinare – Mr Chong Yoon Yen. I’ve received many enquiries regarding his whereabouts as many readers have tried contacting him without avail.
Anyway – one reader, Mr Rupert Singleton with that do-or-die attitude decided to go to Mr Chong’s clinic and he was pleasantly surprised as Mr Chong was still operating from his SEA Park clinic.
I also bumped in Mr Chong a fortnight ago in a shopping mall and he was all smiles as he recognised me as the blogger of his very famous post. Gee – I never knew there were that many people with bad backs and other bone-related problems!
I asked Mr Chong why he cannot be reached by mobile and he replied that his phone was misplaced or perhaps stolen. I would think that the sheer number of calls asking for early reservations irritated him and prevented him for dispensing treatment to his patients. Hmmm…
Mr Rupert Singleton is an amazing photographer and he has graciously supplied me with photographs of da man! And yes, Mr Singleton waited for over 5 hours and Mr Chong himself admitted that he made the “poor chap wait”.
What’s even more delightful is that before receiving treatment from Sifu Chong (“Sifu” is the Oriental equivalent to “Master”) – Mr Singleton had been suffering in silence from a bad back. Added to that was his passion in ZaZen, a Japanese meditation technique where one sits facing a wall for hours in deep contemplation. Because meditation requires an upright sitting posture and because Mr Singleton is a professional Photographer, he lugs all his photography equipment with him over the hills and everywhere. And that – I believe, is the cause of his bad back.
I know how he feels. Gee – I was in Taiwan directing a video shoot recently and helping the video guy lug his equipment is no joke!
I quote Mr Singleton’s reply to my post:
“It was worth it. I see what you mean, this man has a special ‘power’. I could hardly walk without pain in my back and after the treatment it was virtually gone. My problem isn’t cured but after just one treatment there was dramatic improvement, dare I say ‘miraculous’ abatement of pain.”
So if Mr Singleton could wait over 5 hours and felt very much better after that – why can’t you? And yes – Sifu Chong is still in SEA Park.
