When I got on the plane on Tuesday to fly from Tokyo to Singapore I felt healthy

Indeed, were it not for the fact that a colleague later discovered me and rushed me to a doctor, I might have died that night.

Fortunately, the doctor who treated me, tropical medicine specialist Oon Chong Teik, had just read online about the obscure W135 mutation in Saudi Arabia.

When I emerged from my brush with meningitis in Singapore, I felt so giddy to be alive that I declared I would try to feel grateful each day — and never “sweat the small stuff” again.

Sadly, that pious resolution probably lasted about a month; humans are hard-wired to lose perspective amid the daily grind.
