i used to teach piano and drum during my early days of studying in INTI college, and also play some weekend gigs to make extra pocket money because my dad wouldnt want to pay for my school fees. (He wants me to take up his piano business)

My First Business venture - Handphone shop
After i completed my degree, i jump into handphone business because by that time, there were no Vivo, Oppo, and official samsung store, what we do is we import samsung and iphones from grey market and sell with high profit margin. The business grew so fast that i cant imagine opening 6 stores in just 3 years time, somemore all prime location such as Sunway Pyramid, One Utama, Paradigm mall, Sg Wang, Melaka Dataran Pahlawan Mall and up to Singapore Queensway Mall !
I was once a Googler where i learn most of the website designing, server hosting and also digital marketing. I am so obsessed with online marketing and eventually after i left Google Malaysia, i started a digital marketing firm with one of my good friend & Manager who i met in Google. Check us out at onlineventure.asia ! We are serving big client such as Loreal, Giant and also Proter & Gamble, helping them to leverage their online presence through campaigns.

2015- present Hand over Family Business
After completing my Master from Australia, i came back to Msia to work with Google Malaysia. On 2015, i officially took over my family business – Piano supplying and some small Plantation business. Took me years to sharpen my skills of refurbishing pianos & regulation, flying to Japan and China to learn from the expert. We are also one of the main piano supplier who sent our pianos for exhibition, roadshow for competition !
This photo was taken in Japan, where i was invited to witness the launching of Yamaha Grand Pianos (Forgot what model already, but i know the food was super nice on that day haha)
