Sometimes it is hard to say things about yourself, trust me, it is tough. You do not want to be seen as self-praising but not to the extent of self degrading.
I started blogging in late 2005 and what a journey it has been!
Strangely I started in the corporate world working on legal matters with banks and solicitor firms. But after couple of years of being bogged down with routines and to some extend, tired of processing civil suits against companies and individuals (I hate to be in their shoes and lately my good karma have been taking some good beatings too) and acting in counter suits, I decided that I needed change – a big change that is and God must have heard me.
At the blink of the eye (rather after one phone call), I became an IT consultant. Ya, weird things can happen to you. I handle technical documentation (need to use my blogging skills somewhere right?), project management and system support both in Malaysia and overseas.
On a personal note, I am married for the past err…4 – 6 years (and counting) and have a lovely wife and cute my son (ya, he is going to make noise on me using the word “cute” here).
Having a family was one of the best things that happened to me (it has its own challenges though) and this is probably why I feel that spending time blogging about the government, responsibility and other things that we Malaysia care about is a good way to start pushing for a brighter future for all of us. If we don’t make our opinions matters (even it means shouting at a big crowd but no one response back to you), we will be forever cursed to be the “silent majority”.
Like most of us, I started blogging in Blogspot before moving to WordPress (that is before Blogspot decided to revamp its blog tools and improved a lot) and after 687 posts (at time of this update and counting), I am more motivated to continue blogging. I am still learning though – in blogging, language and general knowledge.
Lately it has slanted towards Malaysia and the political situation – something that I would deemed as very necessary especially after having children of my own. What kind of future awaits him and his generation? Do we be ignorance and walk the other way?
These were the thoughts that were running in my mind before the last general election in 2008 and I am glad that we bloggers contributed in small way to make the necessary changes but we are not done yet. Malaysia is great and I am proud to call myself as a Malaysian but we have a long journey ahead of us if we want to make this beautiful country a paradise to live in and certainly one level higher than the rest of other countries. There are many things to be done – as a blogger, I hope to participate in this change in a small but active ways.
But I also blog on other issues – current event, family, childhood memories (trying to make it a weekly series), motoring and more (just click on the sidebar to see all categories). And by doing so, it makes this blog with mixed topics unlike those specialized ones. Depending on the readers, it can be a bad or good thing.
