First book “Hospitales”.

Not many people can claim to live through an 11 month-long hospital stay. Gilbert Tan not only did that but also survived deadly infections, multiple surgeries and near-death moments to recount the tales as told in Hospitales.

Dotted with cutting wit that is doused with hearty humour, Gilbert’s medical stories will tickle a funny bone, draw a tear or two, or make you shake your head in disbelief.

Ride this journey-with its ups and downs, twists and turns, and an ending yet to be written-from the view of a wheelchair user.

Below are some articles I have written over the years. Feel free to read them to catch a glimpse of the man on a chair.
