I am Malaysia's first International Master. My highest rating achieved is 2415 in 1985. I started a chess school in 1988. After two years I closed the school and stopped playing chess seriously when I realized I cannot depend on it for a living. I dropped chess to concentrate on a more financially rewarding occupation.
Currently I work as a Technical Manager in a MNC. Recently I started playing chess again and do a little coaching.
Besides playing I also did some problem composing.
