I was tagged by Kuanhoong about "The face behind the blog" meme on June 23rd. Due to my exam, I was excused to do it later :)-.
Most people's blog do not have their personal photos. Often times, their readers wonder how do their bloggers look like. But that is not the case for me, you see my beautiful face all over my blog :)-. And I think by now you should have known that these photos were taken when I was younger, right ? :)- (catch cha).
I started blogging after I had a very unpleasant event with a Malaysian social network forum. I spend a lot of times in the forum and wrote a lot of articles on gold investment. After the unpleasant event, I thought to myself, why should I be writing free article for people ? and not being appreciated ? I might as well create my own site on gold / silver investment ? But at that time, I did not know how to go about doing it. A cyberfriend Casper introduced me to blog. I started blogging on gold/silver investment. I did not get as many comments as I like to. Then one fine day, I stumbled onto Wuching blog. I really like his blog because he wrote a lot of things about Melbourne, Australia and also posted a lot of pictures on Melbourne. I did my high school in Melbourne, Australia, so his blog brought back a lot of good memories.
One day coming home from a country drive, I decided to revive my personal blog "Seay's Kopitiam". I put more effort on my investment blog than my personal blog. However, as I started to pay more attention to my personal blog,I realized people like to read normal daily things than investment. I suppose our daily life kind of things are easier to relate to than say gold or silver mines.
Beside blogging, I am a full time housewife, a full time mom to a 4 years old ; and a full time student. I often wish I have 36hours a day :).
Investment is my 1st love (beside family etc), then come IT. IT have came a long way since my days. I did my Computer Science degree in Sydney University in the early 80's. 1 or 2 years later than Bill Gates and Paul Alen's era. I remembered using punch card to write our very first program. That is how old I am :)-. We were the very first few pioneers CS. graduates from Sydney University then. I was one of the first woman to manage a Japanese bank in Hong Kong for Malaysia Public bank. We wrote software program that run on big machine (Honeywell, IBM, etc). I have not even heard of internet until the early 90's. But I have came a long way with IT and internet. I met my husband through a Christian matching site. We corresponded for about 2 years before we decided to meet. It was a challenge for me because I have a very successful career in Brunei. I was managing 2 companies for a wealthy business man from Singapore. But, I have not regret a single bit. We have a very wonderful marriage the past 7 years. We have traveled to many places in the states the past 7 years. We have an active boy by the name of JJ - John Junior. We name him JJ because both of us could not come to an agreement of naming him so we named him after his dad and have his paternal grandmother family name as his middle name. I hope he will carry his name to John X. :):):)
I love my life in the US and love being an American. I like America because it is a place where the sky is the limit. I have always been a high achiever , so this America place really suit me fine :)-.
I often wonder if I have more testerone than woman hormones because I like a lot of things that men do. I like to read investment books more than fashion or celebrities magazine. I find it challenging to beat Warren Buffet's record of picking stocks :).
I can go on for another few pages, but I think I will leave it here for the moment. I hope you enjoy my beautiful photo which I took many years ago :). This is an e-age Cinderala story :)-
