About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Walking my own path.

ABOUT ME

*CS has changed a lot, still getting used to it.*

I took a brave decision on August 2013 to hitchhike from Penang to Chiang Mai. I wanted to convince my family that the outside world isn't as dangerous as they have thought. I wanted to tell the people around me especially the Chinese to look beyond money and wealth and to live the present day rather than worrying about tomorrow. I wanted to let my friends who have dreams but afraid of taking the first step not to be afraid but step out bravely to chose the path they want to walk. I did it. And I will continue doing it.
