Introduction

About Me

Generally, I am a not-so-young guy in age, but very young at heart (and some say, in outlook too!). Maybe it's due to my passion for LEGO playing and collecting Transformers toys. 

I hail from a small town (or to be precise, New Village) named Jinjang Utara in Malaysia, a British resettlement plan back in the 50s and 60s to isolate us from the influence of the communist. As a pretty chubby boy, I was pretty nerdy as a kid, preferring to stay off anything that requires socialising or sports.





One of my life changing moments is not LEGO  though, but introduction to computers when I was 14. Picking up BASIC and its variants at record speed  with minimal access to tutors , I spent even more time in the computer lab after school till I finish my secondary school in SM Jinjang (my secondary school). LEGO back then were luxury  items, so I mostly bought the "cheaper" vehicle sets.  And as for official Transformers product... I had JUST TWO: Headmaster Bullhorn and G2 Grimlock (grimmy is still here, albeit with a limp arm ).


My philosophy in life

I am pretty much a simple person with an even simpler life, likes everything from the 70's and 80's (especially the music). I believe the secret of happiness lies in reliving the times and feelings of my happiest days, and to many of us, that would be during our childhood - the most stress-free period. For example, listening to song we once hummed to when we were small, or simply, playing with the toys we used to play.

As much as we are constantly struggle with the stresses from work and studies, we ought to also compensate by spending equal amount of time indulging in whatever that made us happy and feel contented.
