From accounting to education

I was trained as an accountant. Somewhere along my career, I took a sharp turn into education first as a business development manager then as an entrepreneur when I set up a centre of learning for business professionals in Jakarta.

I enjoy many different interests – I love reading books, I cook for the family, I get swallowed by the intensity of gardening (immensely enjoy fruit planting, hydroponic and bonsai) and woodwork (and any type of handy work at home) and cycling (though the bike appears to be collecting dusts in the store).

I have a deep passion in education. I run a small company that provides consultancy services in education as well a student recruitment services for institutions of higher learning and currently pursuing my masters in instructional technology at the University of Malaya.
