I was born in 1965. The other great events of that year were around the Beetles, Martin Luther King Jr and Muhammad Ali. I was born in Klang, Malaysia and grew up in that town, until I left the country for the first time when I was 20 years old.
I first came to beautiful Australia via Sydney. Bob was PM then, with John Howard as default Opposition Leader. I went to University of New South Wales for a few years and enjoyed living in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, going into the city on weekends for work. After finishing at UNSW, I went back to Malaysia to practise as a lawyer in Kuala Lumpur.
I left Malaysia to return to Australia permanently in 2004. John was PM then. I became an Aussie citizen in 2007 but have considered myself an “ex-Malaysian” from the moment I returned in 2004.
I now live in Melbourne Australia, with my wife and a little black furry pooch we sometimes refer to as the Little Black Jedi.
Our daughter left home for Canberra (ANU) a few years ago. She was married to a lovely man earlier this year and they both continue to live and work in the capital city.
My wife and I are part of an Anglican church community in the Blackburn North, in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
I started following Hawthorn when we first moved here and became a member a few seasons ago – I love watching them now and go for as many home games (at MCG) as I can.
