Bald 'n Sassy

Life is for the living. Live simply. Expect less.

Who’s that girl?

My name is Christina.  My friends calls me, Chris and my family calls me, Tina.

Why did I start this blog?  Well, I have been nudged a few times by family and friends to pen down my experiences in life. In particular my experiences dealing with cervical cancer, the treatments and how this has changed my outlook in life.

Aside from cancer, I do have my guilty pleasure and that is food.  I love to eat but at the same time I also love to cook.  I like to experiment with different ingredients, flavours from all around the world.  Each time I travel I always make it a point to visit the local markets.  Touching and trying different foods that titillates the palate.  Now and again, I will blog on the different foods and places I have been too.  My dream one day is to own my restaurant where I am the Executive Chef.

I hope my contribution has helped you or someone that is close to you in dealing with cancer.  It is a toughest challenge anyone has to deal with.  As for the foodies out there, I hope you enjoy reading my reviews.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to read my thoughts.  I would love to hear your comments.

    hi christina, i’m liz, a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient. will be going for my 2nd chemo on 1/8 and my hair’s starting to drop today! dont know if i should just shave it all off now, i dont think i can handle if it starts to fall out in clumps! i’m so stressed! but i am thakful to have chance upon your blog today, it gives me encouragement and support to know that i am not alone in having to deal with this, thanks

    • Hi Liz,

      Nice to meet you here 🙂 and thank you for dropping my blog. I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis. As for the hair falling out, I decided to shave it off to avoid the messy clumps. My hair started falling out around 2 weeks after my first round of chemo. I shaved my head about 1 week after chemo and it was much easier to manage when my hair did fall out. Will you be wearing a scarf or perhaps a wig once your hair has dropped?

      I know it is easier said than done but please do not stress! Minimizing any stress is key to fight the cancer. The other key factor is keeping positive throughout the treatment. I will be going for my 4th cycle this Friday. I am just a third way through my treatment.

      Don’t hesitate to drop me an email anytime christinayap@gmail.com

      Stay strong! We can beat this!
