Experience

My journey in teaching started in 2002, with my first school being SM Teknik Batu Pahat in Johor.  After graduation in 2006, I took up a temporary job as a sub-teacher in SMK Sungai Tapang in Samarahan before I was stationed by the Malaysian Ministry of Education to SMK Matang Jaya, Kuching to teach technical education, specializing in HVAC.

I began blogging in 2003 using Blogger, switching to numerous other platforms in between 2005 - 2007, before settling for my own domain in 2008. Now, I have several niche blogs, and my social media accounts are also well followed. I founded the Sarawak Bloggers Society in 2010 to bring bloggers and social media users together, and provide opportunities for social media influencers in Sarawak to be more visible. I was also a contributor to Tiger Airways' Tiger Tales Magazine, as wrote for Singapore based Goal.com. I am currently a Level 6 contributor on TripAdvisor and Google's Local Guides.

I am constantly involved in organizing events as a teacher in SMK Matang Jaya. I organized Sarawak's very first social media event Tweet-Up Kuching (#twtupkch) for two years (2011 & 2012), which was awarded the 'Best Social Media Gathering in Malaysia' for the year of 2013. In 2015, I organized Sarawak's very first crowd-funded event called HashtagLive Kuching (#LiveKCH)
