Current Occupation : Publisher (of blogs) for FREE.
Annual Income from Blogs: In 2015, thanks to my readers who purchased stuff from Groupon after clicking on the links at my blog, where I earn some commission at no extra cost to my readers, I earned about RM600. I then used it in December 2015 to go sign up for a dotcom domain which cost USD99/year (more than RM400). So net income less than RM200! And if no one click on my Groupon links and purchase stuff at Groupon in 2016, come December 2016, my dotcom site will have to go “kaput” as I won’t have enough money to maintain the site.

When we fall in love, everything starts to change and in the process we experience joy along with sadness which makes us human. And when we are young, we feel invincible (I like to tell people “never die before ar” when they do something stupid) and work our butts out to accumulate wealth (old man song – 爱拼才会赢 ). However sometimes shit happens and we wish that we could turn back the clock; but, as soon as we realize what done is done, we are back on our feet and back to enjoying life. And should we die earlier than we have scheduled/planned, our loved ones get to burn whatever remaining money we left behind as we can’t take it to our graves.
All time favorite song enjoyed by all generations: Doris Day Que Sera Sera

Happiest/Proudest Moments in Life (so far): Day eldest son was born and the day he entered University.
Stupidest Thing Done in Life (so far): Shiok sendiri burning money on electronic gadgets over 2 decades, i.e. mobile phones, computers and now iPads.
Wish: TDM be made Prime Minister again because all the current politicians have no vision for the country but busy deploying dirty tactics to be in power. Also most importantly, only TDM has the guts to imposed that Math and Science be taught in English in our national schools. Another wish is they make more 24 Hours tv series.
