What can we learn today?

This website was born out of a multitude of reasons. I wanted to carve out my own little portion of the internet that I could call mine. To set up a website where people could learn a little bit more about me and the stuff I do. And lastly, just to see if I could1.

I’m currently the Vice-President of Business Development at Ng Khai Development Corporation , where we help our customers “Translate technology to business strength”. I also currently serve as the Vice-Curator of the Global Shapers Community: Cebu Hub , an initiative of the World Economic Forum.

I was previously based in Hong Kong for 11 years, where I studied at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and worked for 6 years as an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems consultant with the Nomura Research Institute (NRI) Hong Kong Ltd. . I also founded a local TTRPG community called The Glowing Fool .

I would say that learning, for me, has always been an endeavor of curiosity. I would like to think of myself as a jack of all trades, master of none (often times better than a master of one). I like learning in the pursuit of something. And this can lead to all manner of very odd and interesting skills that I’ve accumulated. I can perform system administration tasks, and I can swing dance. I can build websites, I also make funny voices in weird accents. I don’t know if there is any rhyme or reason to it all. But it’s definitely fun.

Striving to Be Better

The challenges of Hong Kong’s education system has always been a topic of conversation between my friends and I. It makes for good conversation fodder on if any of us would ever want to “settle down” in Hong Kong. Personally, I’ve always been averse to the idea; primarily due to Hong Kong’s ruthless emphasis on rote memorization, test-based assessments, and high-pressure education culture.
