Telemedicine Video Consultation Service by RESCU

Ring Ring! Someone called a doctor?

For any long time readers out there, I’m sure you’re as puzzled and bemused as I am by how much my life has metamorphosed over the years.

Going from lifestyle content creator to photo studio manager doesn’t seem like much of a leap but then ending up as the manager of a medical company, how did that happen?

Running RESCU, a mobile clinic service in MOH’s LEAP Sandbox, we’ve now served more than 2000 patients. It’s been an extremely meaningful and rewarding process and I can finally say I feel like I’ve found my calling but that doesn’t mean I’m hanging up my camera and writing cap anytime soon!

RESCU Telemedicine Video Consultation Service

Over the last ten years, this space has been here with me through all the ups and down as have a lot of you! Many of you have even engaged RESCU so you can bet I’ll continue to post here and on all my socials, each and every exciting step of the way!

Since COVID-19 first reared its head, the world as we knew it was flipped upside down and for once, we found ourselves united in uncertainty. It can be scary to think what was once normal may never come to pass again.

We’ve listened to your concerns and feedback, noting that a home visit from our team might not always be the most accessible option. Many of you would prefer not to see a doctor while some of you simply don’t want to frighten your neighbours by having our team coming to your home all gowned up in PPE!

So I’m very happy to announce the next step in RESCU’s journey…

Welcome to Telemedicine Video Consultations!

The digital era is here, as are digital MCs!

You can now pick Dr. Bobby Stryker’s brains and have a video consultation through WhatsApp, tapping on 17 years of experience, without us having to physically come to you and vice versa!

As always, we promise absolute transparency with all our consultation rates and medicine delivery charges:

Weekdays

12pm – 4pm | $20 ($20 Medicine Delivery)

4pm – 10pm | $30 ($25 Medicine Delivery)

10pm – 2am | $40 ($30 Medicine Delivery)

Weekends and PH

All Day | $40 ($30 Medicine Delivery)

Note: Prices shown are for consultation only. Medicines can be provided at additional costs based on your condition and are priced similarly to most family clinics from $1 to $20.

We heard through the grapevine that many of you tried medical services that offer free medicine delivery but then later realised the medicines are super expensive! 😅

Rest assured, there are no hidden costs or funny gimmicks! Our rates are visible for everyone to see on our website and you can even call in for a no-obligation quote.

Our telemedicine service runs from 12pm to 2am daily so that we can still devote most of our time and efforts to those patients who require a house call. Hit this link to find out more!

As a self funded, boot strapped venture with no big investors and limited media coverage, we are truly humbled and blessed by everyone’s support. All your positive reviews and posts on Instagram and Facebook have allowed us to go toe-to-toe with all the big players and keep moving forward!

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support we receive every single day we step out of our house and into yours!

We hope this new way of seeking medical care will allow us to help even more of you.

It’s a brave new world folks and it’s still changing every day so let’s continue to stay safe and look out for those who might not be able to look out for themselves.

Take care friends.

We’re All Mad About Sunplay’s Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Range

“It’s always tea time!”

I have the dreaded combination skin type, which means it’s always challenging meeting all my skin care needs.

To add salt to the wound, running a 24/7 mobile clinic means I often have to sacrifice my full skincare routine to reach my patients’ homes as quickly as possible!

However, knowing that sun related damage is the most important cause of premature ageing, applying a sunscreen is something I never forget and is my single most important step after cleansing!

As of late, even after sleeping well, I find myself receiving more and more comments about my tired and gaunt appearance.

So it was definitely a pleasant surprise hearing this less and less the longer I used the Sunplay Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green!

Not only does it protect my skin from the sun but the special colour-correcting coverage offered by the sunscreen helps to even skin tone, concealing the redness due to broken capillaries around my nose and laugh lines, a property I’ve never enjoyed before in a sunscreen but something I’m definitely going to be looking out for from here on out!

And the final icing on the cake is the special blend of vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and other ingredients, nourishing my skin while protecting it! Perfect!

Also pictured here is the Sunplay Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Lavender that can not only colour-correct but also brighten our dull skin instantly.

And this is why like Alice (from Wonderland), I sometimes believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Special shoutout to Sunplay and Clozette for collaborating with me on this campaign.

Hit up this link for more about Sunplay’s multi-tasking sunscreen range. The sunscreens are now available at Watsons at SGD27.90 (80ml).

A Message For Our Bangladeshi Community

Chancing upon this photo from my trip to Bangladesh earlier this year, I was reminded of the kindness and generosity I experienced at every turn.

Even these old rickshaw uncles went out of their way to help me take the perfect picture while expecting nothing in return.

What we see here in Singapore is just the tip of the iceberg. They have millionaires and Nobel Peace Prize winners, doctors and lawyers, rich and poor people, the same as any nation.

What we see here simply reflects a very specific demographic and after experiencing such kindness, I was even more sad seeing how the Bangladeshi community here has been especially affected by this cruel and unforgiving virus.

Here’s a short message to show our solidarity and support for the Bangladeshi community here, separated from their families and loved ones, likely worried and afraid.

Stay strong and stay positive, there are many of us rooting for you and hopefully this will all be a thing of the past very very soon.

Inshallah! 🙏🏻

Happy Haunting, Ghoulfriend!

As we enter the final stretch of the year, my heart is usually aflutter with an electric buzz in anticipation of Halloween and of course, the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas!

However this year – it all felt completely the opposite and it’s no surprise why.

After my beloved Ah Gong passed away in May and B had to go for several surgeries along with other happenings, it’s been a truly challenging and testing year for us.

Knowing that our Christmas get together this year would be missing one special place at the dining table, it had me torn up inside and instead of looking forward to it, I was starting to dread it.

As they say, memories that once made you laugh now make me want to cry and those memories that made me cry now make me want to laugh.

Anyone who’s followed me will know how much I adore these times but this year I just found myself questioning so many things and whether there was any point celebrating.

Recently, B was given the all clear and suddenly, there seemed to be some glimmer of hope. Other things started to fall into place and it dawned on me that while really a lot has happened this year, I’m still so fortunate and still have so much to be grateful for. It really helped me draw some perspective on what matters and what doesn’t.

I have my beloved Ah Ma, my parents and of course B, all there championing my corner in the game of life and as I sat down to centre myself and my thoughts, that spark started to reappear.

If anything is clear, it’s that life is fickle, short and I can’t sit around moping and lose valuable time that I could be spending with my loved ones and doing things I find meaningful.

With B by my side, better late than never, the Halloween decorations finally came out and so did that warm fuzzy feeling I always get this time of year. The excitement and anticipation started to return.

And as my excitement grew so it did in the eyes of my family and they’re all already asking what we’ll be doing for Christmas this year.

I know in my heart Ah Gong is always with me and there’s no way he’d want me sitting there like a recluse in a corner, abandoning everything that was important to me.

So with Ah Gong in my heart and everyone else who’s been there supporting me all the way, let’s have some fun! Because life’s too serious and no one gets out alive anyway!

I was scared of all the things that happened but now I’m more scared of all the opportunities I might miss, so let’s make the most of it!

Here’s my Halloween transformation 2019!
