Work

Since 2016 where I left Singapore and returned to my hometown (Ipoh), I have and will continue to start a variety of projects. Most are started with the purpose to make me a living.

Inspired by Josh Pigford’s project page, here are my stats and the full list of projects I have started since.

Note: These are only internet-related projects I have started. In between these, I also dabbled with a few non-internet hustles like being a real estate agent, all of which didn’t work out for me.
