About Daniel Tung, a Deparment of Zoology Animal Biology graduate, 1995. He 'prowls the red-light districts, handing out condoms and extolling the virtues of safe sex.'

"Tireless campaigner." By Wong Kim Hoh. The Star Online, 23 Aug 2005.

In Lorong 12, he sizes up a 20-something Chinese streetwalker, who gives him a beckoning smile. Emboldened, he saunters up to her. He exchanges pleasantries with her in Mandarin.

The anticipated indecent proposal does not come. Instead, Tung digs into his knapsack and gives her a little brochure in Chinese.

What is it? notes Ah Jing, a Sichuan native who has been in Singapore for over a month.

It tells you how to take care of yourself, he replies. He then pulls out several condoms.

You know what these are? You want some? Do you use them? he asks.

She lets out a girlish laugh. Of course, I use them. They are condoms.

IÕve even gone for check-ups at that sex clinic. IÕve been there twice, she says, referring to the DSC (Department of STI Control) Clinic in Kelantan Lane. This is the main sexually transmitted infections clinic run by the Singapore Government.

Tung smiles approvingly. He makes some more small talk before saying: I wonÕt disturb you. YouÕre at work. Thank you and take care.
