Just received the picture today, he looks fine. And of course, he's laughing his head off there...

The photographer did a good job cropping out all the food around Hien, the empty Pringles boxes and the Durians...

Sorry - that just cracks me up - The Mad Mod as a spammer. We've had suspicions about him for quite some time. Now we know the truth - he is a spammer!

Great! Is it just me or was there an increase in Spamming activity on the forum while he was away?

Guys,

Thank you very much for all your concerns. I think I should give a brief update on what had happened since there are people *coughGellicough* who requested for it.

Just over a month ago, I had a seizure while chatting with TP members. I was admitted into the hospital and they found something in my brain (which unfortunately was not a durian seed ). The size was 4 x 3 x 2.5 cm. Based on the MRI and my previous scans years ago, the radiologist suggested that it was a malignant tumour. :(

After seeking a few other neurosurgeons' opinions, it had been decided that my head had to be operated to get that tumour out, whether it's a cancer or not, because due to that thing, my right brain had swollen and was pressing on my left brain.

The "test" that the others had been talking about was actually a test to determine which part of my brain controlled my speech. This was required because I am partly left-handed, and that the tumour was located at the speech area of my right brain. According to the neurosurgeon, 100% of righties have their speech controlled by the left brain. As for the lefties, 70% of them also have their speech controlled by the left brain, with only 30% of them having their right brain controlling their speech. Furtunately, the test showed that I belonged to the 70%, meaning that I did not have the risk of losing my speech due to the surgery.

The surgery was on Monday morning and was successful. It lasted for about four hours and I was put in ICU immediately after that. Being in ICU was not a very good experience, especially when the old man next to you almost died choking! Thankfully, I was transferred back to normal ward the following morning because I recovered quickly. And this afternoon, I was allowed to go home.

The neurosurgeon said that initial test during the surgery showed that the thing was a pseudo-tumour (a group of dead/dying cells). They've sent the thing for a more thorough test to make sure that there were no cancerous cells in the "tumour."

So, there you are, a so called "brief" update.

I'm now bald. For those who wishes to see me, here's a rare chance, more so since I'm bald! It's in my photo gallery. I didn't put it as a profile photo. The photo will only be available for a limited time, after which, it will be removed.

Last but not least, all of you, get my name right!!! I'm HIEN!!! Not/Never Hein!!!

Ok, gotta go to bed now. This thing is preventing me from staying up late. ;)

Good news indeed, Hine . Now rest long and hard, and remember not to steal cupcakes from choclate or isadoras from pringles. And also, because of *coughGellicough* which sounds very nasty, make sure you get yourslef an extra stregnth lemsip. It will cure you cold and cough. Hope to see you back here again properly very soon*.

(* And yes, I probably am still lying)
