Who am I?


Melvin is an entrepreneur, visionary and risk-taker. Over the years, Melvin has involved himself in a wide range of businesses but his passion is now into cars and charity work, especially in his cause in raising awareness for the abused children. The most important lesson he learned in business and life is – If you put your heart and soul as well as your time, effort and love in doing something, nothing is impossible to you.

My Story


Melvin was diagnosed from a rare type of malignant tumor known as fibrosarcoma, a soft tissue cancer that necessitated a limb amputation when he was 17. He had a hip disarticulation on his right leg shortly after the biopsies confirmed his diagnosis.

The crisis made Melvin look at life from a different perspective. Melvin is on a soul-searching life journey. He vowed to never let his disability get in the way of his life. Melvin took on the challenge to climb Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia in early 2010. Melvin successfully reached the top of Mount Kinabalu, Sabah on April 20th, 2010. He was among 33 people who climbed Mount Kinabalu to raise awareness on child abuse and collect funds for Shelter Home.

On June 2012, Melvin skied successfully for the first time with the aid of a special ski crutches. Melvin hopes to see more amputees like himself challenging themselves for what deemed as impossible.

One of his most notable achievements is developing a very successful online publication for computer hardware news and reviews despite having no prior working experience and driven only with a strong passion for computers in his teenage years around y2k.

He holds a B.Sc. (Hons) in Business Information Systems from University of Portsmouth majoring in E-Commerce. He is also named as Ball’s Watch – Men of Substance 2010 in partnership with Men’s Uno Magazine, together with 3 other amazing individuals.Melvin’s was also selected by Fraser & Neave (F&N) in the category of Nation Building for the 2011 F&N’s Out-Do Yourself Award (OYA). The award seeks to recognize and celebrate deserving individuals with an extraordinary outlook on life and inculcate a culture of recognition for truly outstanding performance.

“If I can do it then you can definitely do it.”

He achieved another milestone when his mountain-climbing effort got him into the Malaysia Book of Records for being the first amputee to climb Mount Kinabalu.
