Personal Background

Since moving to New Zealand from Malaysia alone for the past 8 years, I have learned to be independent, met people from all walks of life and adapt to all kinds of situation. I have always had a part time job while studying as I was able to juggle between study, work and social life. Travelling, cooking, eating and staying fit are my favorite activities. It is a pleasure to be able to discover different cultures and food from different cities. I believe that there is a lot for me to learn in the growing construction industry especially in NZ where the industry is still trying to find good grounds.
