  1. This is what we need in this digital age. Congratulations Mr. Joiw Hee Jhee for this magnificent contribution in the field of new media. How I wish I could get a training on “CYBER WELLNESS” from any of your centers in Singapore. I am a religious missionary from the Daughters of St. Paul-Philippines in charge of media literacy program for parents and young people. I will certainly appreciate a reply if it’s possible. Thanks!

  2. It’s really amazing to note how new technology can virtually bring us
    to ‘work together’ for other people. Your brilliant idea of
    “cyberwellness” is so relevant at this point in time and I hope many
    people — especially the digital natives will find – not only

    information but transformation from your blog.
