Good morning everyone. it is a bright and sunny day here in Malaysia this morning. I hope all of you are in the pink of spirits and are keeping safe.
Yesterday, someone asked a pertinent question on Facebook, where my friends and followers number more than 5,000. Thank you so much for your kind patronage and support. I appreciate it very much. He said: Tell me something about yourself?
So, I am answering the question here with a third-person short-bio. I hope this answers your question, Sir.
