My name is Chew See Lim, a Malaysian Chinese. Born on the 22nd July, 1958. Married with a daughter and a son. Education level was up to O-levels, then studied architectural draftsmanship in a local polytechnic. Worked as an architectural technician in the Architect's Department in the Penang Island Municipal Council for the past 30 years. Prior to that I was attached to City Hall of Kuala Lumpur. Now I am a pensioner. I live an active lifestyle since young, being very active in badminton. I started cycling at the age of 36, going around the country and later Thailand. Always been my dream of doing this long ride. Have back-packed into Indo-China too with some others. Now, I am enjoying my freedom with my time. Might want to do it again if there is another opportunity, maybe the Karakorum Highway.
