I still eat everything, says local veteran TV actor Chew Chor Meng, whose five-year battle with Kennedy's Disease has been well-documented in the media.
Despite having the debilitating and incurable illness that leads to spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy, the actor was a picture of radiance and positivity during an interview with TNP.
The actor had also developed diabetes about three months ago.
He said: "Of course I watch my diet, but I believe in eating moderately," stressed the father of two girls, age 11 and nine.
"I love hawker fare like char kway teow, fried chicken and oyster omelette.
Till today, I eat them from time to time. "Life is short. If I totally cut such delicious food out, I'd feel very miserable."
Chew is filming Channel U's new 13-parter culinary-themed drama series Served H.O.T., where he plays a talented but corrupt, down-and-out chef.
The show is slated to premiere on Jan 9 next year.
