“I hope to funds for Melaka Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA Melaka), Wings Melaka, Women Aid Organization (WAO) and National Blind Association of Malaysia and I am bearing all the operating expense from Melaka to Penang,” he said a meeting with the press yesterday.

As for my training I have jogging regularly across Bukit China and going shorter trishaw rides,’ he added.

I have been doing charity and now during career having spent over one decade in Gibraltar and London, I have decided to do a bigger charity,” he added.
