I write with passion, and have published essays and short stories in various Malaysian newspapers for over a decade. Press and media in China had republished several of my essays online (see my portfolio).

Besides than publishing works in Chinese, I am also skilled in English/Malay to Chinese translation. With 6 years of experience assuming position as Journalist and International News Translator in Sin Chew Daily, a top Malaysian Chinese Daily, I am well trained to convey information accurately and reader-friendly.

Chinese is my native language; I am fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and Hakka; master in both Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters.

Similarly, my past time hobby of exchange letters with pen-pals worldwide for years, including Austria, England, USA, Turkey, Israel, Japan and Hong Kong had provided an excellent platform for me to understand worldwide cultures from the perspective view of ordinary people.
