KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 5): Datuk Dr Tan Chee Khuan says he lives two lives in one lifetime — as a psychiatrist and gallerist. He is also a writer, publisher, collector and philanthropist.

The good doctor has written his autobiography, which will be launched on March 5 at The Art Gallery in Penang, which he set up with his late wife Tan Siau Bian. The launch coincides with the opening of an exhibition of his own paintings. Proceeds of sales from his book and paintings will go to the Penang Home for the Infirm and Aged.

The idea is to inspire young viewers to do the same for themselves.
