About Me

About Me

This is probably the most personal entry, so I hope you don’t get bored.

I’ve been blogging for more than a year, and I’ve just realized that there’s no “About Me” section till now. So this entry is dedicated to “About Me”. Here goes…

First and foremost, my name is not Ken Wooi and I like to play with Ken.

Many of you don’t know this, but “Ken” is not my self-created English name. Instead, it’s a part of my full name. I put my last name in front of my surname. So actually, people don’t call me “Ken Wooi” when they see me; it’s either “Ken” or my two last name.

Anyway, if your name is Yew Hon Fook, do get fookyew.com for your blog okay?

As the eldest among the siblings, I was probably the naughtiest one.

kid

Yeah, me and my bad-ass bike! Cool eh?

And my parents used to buy me soft toys. Look, a picture of me and teddy bear.

baby

As big as me. But look at its size now…

teddy bear

Teddy bear has shrunk! Time really flies…

I started kindergarten at St. John’s Kindergarten, Ipoh.

Can’t remember much but there was one embarrassing moment I can recall. I peed in my pants. Oh dear…

kindergarten

On an unrelated note – Mishal, look! You! =)

Upon completing kindergarten, I studied at St. Michael’s Institution, Ipoh during primary and secondary school.

Due to the English-speaking environment, I grew up as a “banana“. I don’t speak Mandarin well and my Cantonese sucks.

I wasn’t a brilliant student, but I was certainly active in the school band. Whenever I talk about school, I always relate my experiences with the Michaelian Military Band. Being in the band gave me many memories, and it’d take entries to re-tell every single detail about it.

I was a Treasurer and a Section Leader back then. And I participated in numerous performances, concerts and competitions.

band performance

Being in the band has shaped me into the person I am now. It made me realize that there are other achievements and objectives in life instead of aiming for excellent results in academics.

One thing is for sure, it made my high school life more interesting, and it made me dark like charcoal.

I’m the darkest. Can you spot me?

After completing my SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia, an examination for Form 5 students) in 2005, I continued my studies at INTI University College in Nilai.

I started with Foundation in Business Information Technology in 2006 and then proceeded to Degree in Software Engineering in 2007. The whole duration took more than 3 years.

Damn I look skinny last time, no tummy you know!

Anyway, it was a whole new environment being in INTI. Besides going to classes, I joined the INTI Concert Band and then got elected as the Treasurer of 12th INTIMA, the university’s Student Council. Yeah, Treasurer again – is it because I’m a trustworthy and honest person? ;)

By the way, I’m already graduated from INTI.

Besides blogging and all, I like to listen to music, only certain genres. I listen when I’m relaxing, but not when I’m doing work. Also, I play wind instruments!

soprano saxophone

I started playing the Flute in 2001 and then the Soprano Saxophone in 2004, till now. However, my saxophone is collecting dust at the moment because there’s no band to play with.

Besides that, I love traveling. If I have the money, I’d probably go on a world tour. But so far, I’ve only manage to visit certain states and places in Malaysia.

I started blogging in May 2008. The purpose of starting a blog wasn’t defined during the initial stages, but it’s certainly a medium where I share my thoughts and documentaries in life.

Most of my entries are written with a pinch of humour. I believe that laughter is the best medicine – it makes people happy.

You might wonder whether I’m a funny guy in person or not. I can’t give you a definite answer but maybe it’s a little lesser than a pinch?

Anyway, I’m not sure how many people kenwooi.com has reached out to, but I do hope that everyone who reads/follows the blog will enjoy the entries.

I’ve never said this before, but I really appreciate your interest in kenwooi.com. Thank you for reading, thank you for commenting.

thank you

So that’s roughly all about myself. Once again, thank you for reading. =)

P/S: I can’t possibly elaborate every single info “About Me” in this entry. To know me more, feel free to read my entries by going through the archives.

  8. So, whoever calls you just Ken probably knew you from INTI. But those who call you by Wei Ken would most likely be friends from St. Michael’s and your earlier-day friends, right? Hehe…
