Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I began my apprenticeship when dreams started to exhibit future in different shapes. I followed various paths, walked along the very edge of abyss for many years, slipped and fell, gave up and started all over again. I imagined that by the time I reach this age, I would be close to what my dreams always flashed and to the absolute peace.

In fact, I seem to be further from achieving that than ever. I'm not at peace; now and then i go through periods of inner conflict that can persist for months, just long enough to know that another world exists and long enough to leave me frustrated because I cannot absorb everything I learn.
