Stayin’ Alive

Stayin’ Alive

As society advances at breakneck speed amid widespread digital disruption and information avalanche—including the ever-increasing bombardment of contradictory advice and news on health—how do you stay healthy to live well? Stayin’ Alive aims to empower readers to think and live healthily by uncovering common health myths and facts swirling around online and offline. Authored by leading cardiologist Dr Mak Koon Hou, this easy-to-read, informative and intriguing book helps you get your body in shape, understand the truth regarding diet and exercise, and finally, apply the knowledge daily. Divided into three parts, Part I addresses key issues such as heart health, blood pressure, regular exercise, sleep and eating habits. Part II highlights some of the current research findings on areas such as fats, statins (amid the “cholesterol war”), clinical trials, medical innovations and ageing. Part III zooms in on lifestyle and everyday foods—from salt, sugar and carbs to seafood, milk, vitamins and even wine. It underscores the impact of your eating and drinking habits upon your health. Ultimately, staying alive is about staying well, and happy.

Our Story
Tusitala was born in 2010, with a focus on telling transmedia stories. We’re based in Singapore, perfectly poised to represent the breadth and depth of Asian content available in the region. With the world increasingly looking towards Asian stories, we’re both excited and proud to be where we are!

The name Tusitala harks to an island in Samoa, where author Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life. The locals of the island fondly nicknamed him Tusitala, which means storyteller. In our work, we embody the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to our audiences. Only, we take it a step further by introducing the exciting potential of technology.

Our logo is a kitsune – nine-tailed fox, native to Asian folklore and legend. In Chinese, Japanese and Korean folktales, the kitsune is an enchanted animal – magnetic, intelligent, powerful, and able to take human form. From the complexity of the symbolism, we derive simple principles that we stand for – potency, wisdom and creative rebellion.

(This creativity, we must disclose, often vanishes when determining where we should go for lunch each day)
