Profile

Name: Chua Gek Huey (personal@chuagh.net)
Some of my thoughts and principles in life:

  • Others can let you down, but never let others down; 宁人负我 毋我负人
  • I advocate "Love what you do" instead of "Do what you love"
  • Event + Responses = Outcome; good outcome comes from good responses even if it is a bad event
  • Contribute back to society; 取诸社会 用诸社会
  • Success is when you make others succeed
  • Life is not meant to be fun, it is for you to make it fun
  • A little smile means so much; A little help means as much

Community Services:
  • Woodlands Zone '3' Residential Committee
    • Auditor (2011 - 2015)
    • Executive Member (2009 - 2011)
    • Secretary (2007 - 2009)
  • Lions Befrienders (1994 - 2000)
