- What made you decide to become a pathologist?
- I found a special interest in pathology during my student days in medical school. Although I wished to be a pediatrician after graduation, I was channeled to this specialty by chance. This has proved right that I am somewhat gifted with visual image analysis.
- Who was the teacher you admired the most?
- I have been very fortunate in learning from Professor Peter Scheuer, who is the inceptor of my knowledge in hepatopathology, and teacher of many renowned liver pathologists. Now and then, I still listen to his old stories, and learn from his many followers.
- Which research paper influenced you the most?
- As an audience in one of the annual meetings of the Gnomes International Liver Study Group, I was struck by the power of mutual learning and collaborative study. I admired how much their early paper, 'A classification of chronic hepatitis'. Lancet 1968; 2: 626-8, influenced the world.
- What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
- That scientific literature is full of truths as well as faults that one can easily get lost in if one does not take care to observe.
- What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
- Weakness of personality has allowed many great opportunities to slip away.
- What is your unfulfilled ambition?
- To publish a liver pathology atlas.
- What is your greatest regret?
- That I cannot know what happens tomorrow?
- How do you relax?
- By staying in (talking, listening, and playing) with my three lovely daughters.
- What is your favorite sport?
- What is your best place in the world?
- I have yet to find it, perhaps at the time of retirement.
- What is your favorite film?
- "Gone with the Wind".
- What car do you drive?
- A BMW 325I for myself, and a Toyota space wagon for which I drive my family.
- What is your best electronic 'toy'?
- What book are you reading at the moment?
- Chinese poetry, because I am trying to pick out some poems to teach my daughters. They are somehow not taught in school.
- Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
- Because of my liver friend, Professor Amar Paul Dhillon, who is on the editorial board and likes to exaggerate my ability.
