He frequently ate outside, grabbing quick meals from hawker stalls, coffee shops, cafes and fast food restaurants. Or he just skipped meals. He never had time for exercise and was overweight. He was also a heavy smoker, and frequently used the excuse that cigarettes helped him deal with stress. Then one day, he suffered severe chest pain and collapsed.
