Hello there, I am Dr Donna Chow.
I am mummy to 3 important boys in my life – Kandon, Mindon and a mini schnauzer named Ah Bee.
I graduated with a M.B.B.S from National University of Singapore. I did two post graduate diplomas in Family Medicine (NUS) and Practical Dermatology (Distinction, University of Cardiff). Currently, I am the medical director at Arium Clinic.
I live a fairly hectic lifestyle juggling my roles as a mummy, a blogger as well as a doctor.
In my free time, I love online shopping and hope to share with you great buys and bargains which I have chanced upon.
I am a handicraft person as well – you may find some of them being featured on this blog such as my tutorial on how to sew a simple square blouse, DIY baby gate using fabric paint and how to sew a bow tie.
Before Mindon came along, I had no domestic helper for a number of years. Therefore, I have documented my “maidless journey” here on my blog. When Mindon was two, I started looking out for a domestic helper to help me lighten my housework, look after my two hyperactive boys and render me extra time to manage my clinic.
Occasionally, I share my cooking and recipes as well. If I do cook, I prefer simple meals which can be accomplished by as few as ingredients as possible. Check out my 3 ingredient sponge cake recipe, baby cereal pancake recipe and home bake birthday cake. You will be able to see Chef Kandon live on video at the last link.
Some of the aesthetics topics I have shared on includes: Hair removal – laser or IPL and How you should treat your pimple scars. You can check out the aesthetics tag for more of these topics. You can also check out my blog section on Arium Clinic for more content.
I love travelling as well. You can find out more about my adventures under travel
My latest project is the publication of The Three Muttsketeers (a children’s story book) for animal charities. This book is inspired by my pet dog, Ah Bee, who is the protagonist in the story. I am pretty excited by this book project because it is a new arena that I am stepping into – the world of self publishing. Click to view my Amazon Author Page.
I am happy to say that I started this blog by myself – without any external IT help or vendor. I see blogging as a hobby and also an avenue where I can share my journey as a mummy, an aesthetics doctor and my handicraft projects.
I get featured by the media a couple of times – you will find the articles here.
