I used to earn ten cents a day by mowing the lawns of rubber estates back in the 1950’s when I was just a child. In my life journey, I had also been a school bus driver, farmer, grocery trader, insurance agent, broker, truck driver, timber merchant, entrepreneur and businessman. I have now retired from active management, leaving my business in the hands of my very capable sons. I now devote myself to helping out with the Malacca Chinese Education Progressive Association as a volunteer*.
I am grateful that my past experience have made me a better person today. I have always believed that if you have the good fortune blessed with some success and wealth, it comes with it the responsibility to make a difference by creating new opportunities and give back to society in order to help the less fortunate. I believe that actions speak louder than words, and hope to create the legacy and make a difference which we would long be remembered for in time to come
