I have accepted a position in Bahrain to manage a group of international trainers and will be on my way to the Middle East. It’s quite a distance to travel to this island which is BEAUTIFUL. There are no direct flights to Bahrain. Usually, there will be a transit either in Dubai or Abu Dhabi if we take an ME-based flight.
I am looking forward to this position as a catalyst to personal development and exposure to the ME scene. It’s going to be a good challenge for me in terms of working environment and also just enriching my management experience.
It’s going to be SO fun!

On March 26th 2016, I competed in the MPA 2016 competition held at MakeSpace, Quill City Mall, Kuala Lumpur. I competed in the Under-52kg category and emerged 2nd.
Here are my lifts:
Back Squat: 65kg-70-75kg
Bench Press: 35kg-40kg-45kg (PR)
I’m pretty happy with my performance during this meet and I believe this is just the beginning of my journey. I had the opportunity to meet many experienced and friendly powerlifters there such as Stephanie Ensol and Neil who were sharing training stuff.
