Dr Arthur Tjandra’s Facebook account was terminated by Facebook in September 2016. As he can no longer share his favorite race photos with his friends and relatives on Facebook, he has now re-posted those photos on this blog. He will continue to post all his race photos here. When he took part in his first race back in 2004, he promised himself that he would compete in at least 80 races by the time he is 80 years old. As of 2017, Dr Arthur Tjandra who is in his mid-40s, has competed in more than 40 races. Let’s wish him good health, so that he can continue to run up to and beyond the age of 80!

Dr Arthur Tjandra does not have any social media account. Therefore, if you see any social media account (e.g. Friendster, My Space, ICQ, etc) using his name and pictures, that is definitely a fake account! Dr Arthur Tjandra only posts his photographs, mostly photographs taken during his race trips, on this blog.

The following selected photos tell his life story.

In 2013, Dr Arthur Tjandra took part in his last full marathon race at Singapore Standard Chartered Marathon. 2014 is the year he downgrades from full marathon to half marathon races, as he simply does not have the time and conducive environment to train for full marathon. He is a decent sub-2-hour half-marathoner, but a pathetic 5-hour marathoner.

With such bad timing in his last full marathon race, Dr Arthur Tjandra is determined to focus on and train for half marathon races.

  1. How can I reach Dr. Arthur Tjandra? I would like to know more about the liposuction and fat transfer. I have fat around my weist and on upper and lower belly. I would like to know how much it will cost me? It’s very hard to find contact no or email address of him. I hope this time I can reach you by this message.

    Thank you.

    BT
