My Interest In Writing

I am a Malaysian Chinese from Sarawak which is on the tropic island of Borneo where I live now.

Academically, I am english-educated to the Senior Cambridge School Certificate Level

Technically, I have vocational qualifications to the City & Guilds of London Institute Parts 1 & 2 level (with Distinctions in both Parts) in automotive engineering practice.

Career-wise, armed with the mentioned academic and technical education, I joined the oil and gas industry at the age of 19.

I would say I am now semi-retired. I have worked in the industry for over 30 years with 4 major corporations and in 3 countries.

I was in the technical and administrative functions doing a wide range of jobs as the good oil / gas companies always had career development plans for their permanent employees

The jobs that I enjoyed the most were being an offshore production platform supervisor, in-house procedures writer, project materials buyer and expeditor

Shell had sent me to attend a then-existing International Writing Institute course which was held in Kuala Lumpur. I was at that time a Procedures Writer – a job which I held for almost 2 years in the company.

I read a lot since my young days. I love expressing and explaining ideas in writing too – and of course picking the best or most accurate words to achieve that.

Having ‘left’ the mainstream working world, I have devoted my time to the ‘online’ internet world of websites (and keeping the brain occupied and active in the process) doing graphic and video creation, blogging and affiliate marketing.
