He had bailed me out many a time. Like, when I moved this blog from the old Blogspot platform to WordPress. Or when the occasional hosting or database blip occurred. All these via Skype or a mere phone call.

He had also (greatly) influenced several of my tech purchases – ranging from JBL speakers to memory for my old and battered black MacBook. His oft-used phrase beli wei was indeed powerful. Well, just short of coercion.

Sometimes his humour can be pretty annoying and mega gross, but he was such a kind and thoughtful person to all who knew him.

And we will all miss him.

I am not good at this, but see you when we see you.

Chinatown, London. Summer of 2005.
