Welcome to ArthurTjandra.Com

Dr Arthur Tjandra’s Facebook account was terminated by Facebook in September 2016. This is actually a good thing, as these days, only those who are grandparents and great grandparents still use Facebook. You would be considered a dinosaur, if you still used Facebook today. The tech savvy, cool, hip and young-at-heart either use Friendster, MySpace, ICQ, WeChat or TikTok.

Unfortunately, TikTok also kicked Dr Arthur Tjandra out from its platform in April 2022. While YouTube, Instagram and Facebook kicked him out for very obvious reason, that is for promoting syringe liposuction, TikTok kicked him out for completely different reason: for being too sexy to perform kungfu! Perhaps his Shaolin kungfu moves appear more like sexual intercourse than kungfu. Or perhaps his imitation of Bruce Lee’s epic yelling, sounds more like a man having orgasm. Either way, TikTok believes that Dr Arthur Tjandra’s action in the kungfu instructional video is a sexual activity, or perhaps he looks more like a porn star, rather than a kungfu master. That was why he was kicked out with the reason: “adult nudity and sexual activity”. Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie is, perhaps, the most hated person on social media platforms today, as he has been kicked out and banned from all social media platforms.

As Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie can no longer share his favorite race photos with friends and relatives on Facebook and Instagram, he has re-posted old race photos on ArthurTjandra.Com.

He has managed to download some of his videos, before Tiktok terminated his account in April 2022. He has posted those videos on this page: King Arthur’s TOKTOK videos. He continues to make short videos using mobile phone apps and posts them on his own website.

When Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie 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 December 2019, Dr Arthur Tjandra who was coming to 50 years of age, had competed in 56 marathon, half marathon, duathlon, triathlon and 10K races. That is an average of 4 races per year, from 2004 to 2019.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 outbreak, Dr Arthur Tjandra’s marathon trips have been put to a halt since 2020. Even if it is possible to travel again when borders re-open, Australia does not seem to be a viable option anymore, because of the rise in anti-Chinese sentiment in Australia. According to a poll by the Lowy Institute conducted in 2021, more than 63% of Australians view China and the Chinese people as security threats. The number of Australians who see China and Chinese people as security threats increases to 75% in 2022.

Australian government and public officials have issued numerous anti-Chinese statements, including an infamous statement issued in December 2021, stating that Australia does not welcome Chinese people into its land and does not want Chinese tourist dollars. Prior to Covid-19 outbreak, Australia was Dr Arthur Tjandra’s main marathon destination, as he has trouble running in temperate climate in tropical countries. Australia was a perfect option as it was not too far away from Singapore, unlike Europe. Dr Arthur Tjandra visited Australia up to 5 times a year for Canberra, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne marathons. Although Australia has never been a Chinese-friendly country, it was still bearable prior to Covid-19 outbreak.

As Australia and the West have become more and more hostile towards Chinese people, and it did not seem that Dr Arthur Tjandra could acclimatize his warm body (due to his daily practice of inner heat meditation (tummo) which makes his body constantly warm) to Southeast Asia’s warm and humid climate, Dr Arthur Tjandra decided to quit running marathons and break the promise he made to himself in 2004, i.e. to participate in 80 races by the time he was 80 years old. He did not want to be murdered by anti-Chinese Australians when he visited the country to take part in marathon races!

Dr Arthur Tjandra picked up a new hobby, learning Shaolin Kungfu, in April 2022. It is his wish that he would become a master of Shaolin Kungfu in 30-year time, when he is already in his 80s. He has been filming his Shaolin Kungfu learning journey, and published them on TantricPractice.Com.

After he broke his own promise made 18 years ago, that he would take part in 80 endurance running races by the time he is 80 years old, let’s wish Dr Arthur Tjandra good luck, so that he could keep his promise this time, by becoming a Shaolin Kungfu master by the time he is 85 years old! It actually has nothing to do with luck, but everything to do with hard works and efforts!

Besides Shaolin Kungfu, Dr Arthur Tjandra also picked up new hobbies during Covid-19 pandemic: trading and singing. To listen to his singing, you may download the StarMaker App on your phone and look for “King Arthur Tjandra“. Alternatively, you may visit this page: King Arthur’s Singing on StarMaker.

In June 2023, Dr Arthur Tjandra picked up another new hobby. He started to learn swimming at the age of 52, by watching videos, the same way he learns Shaolin Kungfu! He has been filming his swimming learning journey and swim practice and posted it on DR ARTHUR TJANDRA’S SWIMMING DIARY, as well as his own short video channel: King Arthur’s TOKTOK videos. TikTok, Instagram and YouTube will never be able to delete his videos and terminate his accounts anymore, because now he hosts his own videos!

Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2013:

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, instead of full marathon races.
