It is not business as usual and the Failing mark is 79%.


There are days when I am required to stand tall (even when I am not tall) to be the pillar of strength for my people and there are days when I need to lean back and slow it down to let my people take the lead. The real challenge is recognising the time and patience for bills to be paid on time. Every entrepreneurs' challenge as the biggest mistake is to expect employees to understand and behave as an entrepreneur as they would already be one if they did understand. 

I can only communicate for you to better appreciate the situation we are in and ask of everyone to go above and beyond your normal call of duty and to do extraordinary to be able to achieve beyond just surviving, sustaining but really preparing us for 2020 exponential growth. We do have the talents. We now need everyone to come together to endure through this phase that is extremely challenging economic environment for all businesses including ours.  Always remember that business is not as usual and the failing mark today is 79%.

My last good bye with no regrets



I just said my last goodbye to my Dad before leaving Ipoh and returned back to KL to visit Baby G at the Hospital as he was in ICU. It was very very hard to do so. He was supposed to have left us according to my brother but waited for me to arrive. I managed to spend some time with him telling him everything will be just alright and that he can rest now. I told him that we will be fine and that he has done well together with mom with the 3 of us. I am grateful that I managed to see him one more time while he could still open his eyes a little to acknowledge my voice.

If you have not called or hug your parents lately, today will be a good day as tomorrow may be too late. I was not too late as I came back to Malaysia to be with both my parents, took care of them when they needed me most. I have no regrets even now that both of them are not with me anymore. Most importantly, do take care of yourself as I am learning to do so and I am at peace now. 🙏

Understanding your own needs & fulfilling them


Once you understand your "Why?," you will have a much stronger threshold for pain & the grit needed to succeed in anything that you do. Always be grateful no matter what the situation. I am as it continues to grow me to be a better version of me. Thank you. 🙏

My Melbourne Escape.


It has been a long while since I left the country alone to discover new ideas, time alone to reflect and most importantly to be inspired. These last few days away alone brought back lots of good memories of how I have forgotten the beauty of just living without any responsibility. You see, the more responsible I became over the course of my life made others expect me to be more responsible for more than I ever wanted to be. It just never ends and the responsibilities just kept on piling together with the life and work pressure & stress that was uncalled for that made me unhealthy and unhappy. The last few days allowed me to roam freely, meet freely, explore freely & most importantly do freely without anyone to care for or adjust my decisions for anyone. I felt emancipated. I felt real freedom and I was at peace with myself. 

As I return home to Malaysia, I am reminded that I too have many options & choices as I continue to become a better version of myself and saying no to people is something that I will be doing a lot more. I am done chasing after continuous success but focused on attracting success for a more sustainable me. So if you expect me to just say yes for opportunities that are not fit to my lifestyle & heart desires, the answer will be a big NO. My advice for you to be able to perform and do exceptionally well is to make sure that whatever that you are doing, the people that are with you & the timing for all that you do is the right fit for you. Take care of yourself as nothing is more important than you for yourself. 

I will and I am. What about you?

Nothing Comes Easy But Everything Is Possible.


  1. I was 140Kgs 2 years ago. I had hypertension, high blood pressure and was under tremendous pressure for my life & business. I almost lost it all. 
  2. The pressure was real and it was unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I did not give in and give up and continue to live and do whatever I could to pull through. I did as usual as I continue to grow with passion.
  3. I always knew for as long as I do not give up, things will always get better. However, I needed to do something about it. I did and I started my journey on a much better mental and physical health for a more sustainable me.
  4. Most people only see me as their provider and pillar of strength and have forgotten that I too am only human. I do too have my needs and desires just like you. I too need to fulfill those desires just like you do as I am only human.
  5. As I continue to live a much more fulfilling, meaningful & purposeful life, I continue to strive for bigger and better things ahead. This has not changed. The only thing is that it is more focused and less competitive with more collaborations. I continue to work to become a better version of myself.
  6. I weigh 70Kgs today, literally "half the man" I used to be. But believe me, I have definitely become more of the MAN that I have always wanted to be. A man with vision for myself to be healthy & happy. A man that is to fulfill his dreams to live the life that I truly deserve. A man to be loved the way I want to keep me excited to continue working on achieving my dreams.
  7. My vision for the organisation and team has only been much more focused and determined as we are ONLY 1 day away from the big dream happening. We will all achieve what most only dream about but not work towards. WE will all GAIN & GROW from this personally, professionally & most important financially. I know as we continue to grow towards that direction. 
  8. Nothing comes easy but everything is possible. The question still is till today, "are you willing to have the patience, work extremely hard & smart to flow with what works best for you to achieve desired results?"
  9. I am and will continue to do so. There is no free lunch and we will have to work hard for whatever we want. And by the way, my fat and weight did not just disappear into thin air. It took lots of discipline, commitment, determination, hard work, & real sacrifices to achieve the desired results. Yes I lost 70Kgs. So before you tell me you deserve more of anything in life, you need to ask yourself the following question.
  10. What are you willing to do to achieve your dreams to live a more fulfilling, meaningful & purposeful life?


Always remember that it is NOT You Only Live Once (YOLO). Instead, WE LIVE EVERYDAY BUT WE ONLY DIE ONCE. So it is highly important for us to live life daily healthily & happily or it will be extremely miserable for you and everyone around us.

Working Harder and Smarter is NO longer enough


I am a firm believer in working hard and even have my famous quote, "If you think you work hard, work harder." Over the years, I have also learnt that working hard is only the first step. We also need to work smarter to get better results for anything in life. However, what I have truly come to appreciate is that while working harder & smarter are the fundamentals of life success be it business or personal, I have been enlightened that we really do need the right fit for anything to flow with ease to achieve ultimate peak desires and achievements. Thank you for allowing me to understand this very important life message to live a much more meaningful and fulfilled life ahead. Truly blessed as I still have plenty time ahead to get uncomfortable to get in sync with my peak state of mind, body, spirit & soul. 

You can do the same if you are prepared for the discomfort that is ahead. I am as I accept that it is very much needed if we are interested to continue growing in our very own way that best fits us.

I AM A PROUD SALESMAN.



I am a proud salesman and I am always selling. I sell ideas. I sell dreams and most importantly I sell the belief that anything is possible if we work extremely hard and smart.

SALES is not the job for ONLY the sales team, marketing team or the business development team. Sales is the JOB of everyone in the organisation. If we want to grow, WE MUST ALL BE SELLING TOGETHER. Selling our ideas for the organisation to do better. Selling solutions to help our customers to do better. Selling the confidence that our students need from us to succeed.

Always remember that there is NO SHAME in selling if what you sell is of so much value to the people you touch.

Have an awesome Happy CNY Break and get ready to come back and be the fire crackers and fire works to make things happen for an awesome 2019.
