I am a Malaysian-born, Singapore-raised photographer based in Beijing. I co-founded The Poverty Line, a project that contextualizes global poverty. I am a happy father of two and I love a solid Americano. I'm also very fortunate to have reached the summit of Everest when I was 25.
Sometime late last year, I found some spare time in my work schedule.
My daughter was slightly more than 2 years old, and I noticed her awareness of her world had gotten more astute. I always have this desire of imparting my experience and knowledge to her, and the best way in my opinion isn’t telling her, but to show her the world myself.
I realized I had this block of eight days available in front of me, and I promptly bought air tickets for the following day, Christmas Eve.
