About Kai Ling
I enjoy backpacking and recently fell in love with doing solo trips. It’s liberating to travel around without planning an itinerary (planning is such a chore!), and just going with the flow in discovering new places. I’ve also tried couchsurfing, which is staying in a local’s home. It not only allows you to save on accommodation costs, but also allows you to interact with the locals, make new friends, and understand their culture a little better.
During the weekends, I like to head out to hike in the nature hiking trails to get some sun and change of scenery, or to wind down the week by watching crime genre dramas.
What inspired you to become a physiotherapist?
I first came to know about the physiotherapy profession when I was playing Cricket with the Singapore team. During an overseas competition, the Thailand team had a physiotherapist who was kind enough to offer her services to other teams, and I thought it was a pretty cool job to be able to travel around with sports teams. I also knew that I wouldn’t want to be confined to a deskbound job and physiotherapy fitted the profile perfectly as we are almost always on our feet.
What do you enjoy the most about being a physiotherapist?
The greatest satisfaction comes from helping clients to feel better, empowering them to return back to their previous activities and routines or even to improve beyond their original baseline. The euphoric moment of piecing each little bits and pieces of information from the client and from our physical examination to find out the cause of the problem is also something that I enjoy.
Describe your most memorable moment of 2016.
My most memorable moment of 2016 would be my recent solo trip to Sydney. While I’ve travelled alone before, this was my first trip where I did zero readings and research on the places of interest, transport etc. Thankfully everything turned out well in the end, abeilt losing my way a few times.
I also attended my close friend’s wedding while in Sydney which was also the first time I attended a westernised wedding with the dances and all. I was also surprised that the wedding reception lasted nearly 6 hours as opposed to 2-3hours in attending a Chinese wedding dinner.
All in all, 2016 has been a good year, which is also the year I joined Core Concepts. I’ve gained a lot in the new work environment and am looking forward to an even better year in 2017.
