It was delightful indeed to meet so many of abang abu's students, entrepreneurs and soon to be entrepreneurs. I had a great time networking, asking questions, linking up with people. The day was great because the people there made it great. The food just now was really incredible too.

I would like to highlight a few of the people there who inspired me today. There was this abang. He seriously has the makings of a great entrepreneur. Yes he may probably be 40 plus year old but the desire and the attitude we saw in him manage to create an aura that immediately affected the rest...

This abang decided to join Dr Irfan's Internet workshop two months back..After that workshop he went for another course to learn basic knowledge of using computers. He mention spending another $200 for the basic courses - how to use a computer, how to use emails and internet. He even picked up ms word and excel training.

Since September he has been attending courses and have even created two websites on his own. When his children says, "Abah Game Over", he still kept pursuing relentlessly...He has grown and learn from the "do not know" category to "now i know". Its the type of spirit that our own community needs to adopt and i hope to see more of this kind of people coming out from abang abu's courses, my own internet business workshops and also from Dr Irfan's workshop..

The youth of today!! A 23 year old guy was there too carrying a big bag full of clothes. He came and sit down...When it was his turn to speak, he immediately mention that he get orders for baju kurung and sent them to Tanjong Pinang to be sewed. A trade which his mother taught him and yes now he had quit his recent job as a technician and now pursuing this trade.

How he got started...When he was a technician, he was only fetching from $900 to $1200 in salary. By the time he pays his bills, cover basic expenses like food, clothes, gave his mum money and paid loans. That amount will leave him only $200 to $300 per month which in fact is not enough. From there his mind began to think and change, today he's going into full force into this trade...

It's really exciting to hear such youths emerging and trying out on their own.

My Life Mission: I enable others to discover purpose in their lives and empower them to pursue their dreams and live life to the fullest with God's blessing.
