About Me

I am student in the MLIS program at Queens College. This is my first semester and I am currently taking all of my core courses, of which one is 700 - The Technology of Information. In this course, I am learning how to use various information technologies to enhance my technical skill set and prepare to be a librarian in the near future.

My Background

My parents were born in Malaysia and are of Chinese descent. I have an older brother and an older sister and I am married with a brood of kids. My home is super pet-friendly, with a Pekingese-Chihuahua princess, along with hand-raised-from-birth parakeets and koi fish who are older than some of my kids. My family loves to have big gatherings with relatives all over the US and abroad. Many languages are spoken at these gatherings, from various dialects of Chinese to Vietnamese, Cambodian, French, German, Malay, English to the kids-invented secret language to pass messages during meal-times.

  • Cooking: Making spicy foods such as curries, hot-and-sour soups, spicy beef stews, kimchi, and marinated chili peppers.
