Artists Wall

A wall that we have put together that allows our artists to draw on it. Hope they can share their artwork with the rest whenever they are free. I always wanted to build an office that makes our staff feel at home.

Our New Wall

When I look at our new signage, I couldn’t help but recall the challenges we have been through for the last 10 years. When we first started, having a signage is out of the question. Having a reception area and a proper decent looking meeting room is something I will never dream of. The signage serves as a reminder that we should never take what we have for granted. It’s a representation of the hardwork and dedication the past and present crew have fought for the company. For this I am forever grateful. Without this spirit, we will never come this far. Thank you.

Moved In!

We didn’t spent a lot of money in renovation. It’s all just colours and artwork that makes the office nice. But most importantly is the unity of the crew and contribution of everyone that makes this office special. It’s always my dream to build a home for our crew that we all feel proud and look forward to work. It’s our home. That every members own a part of it. Thanks everyone. You make us all very proud.

It's a new day, new office, new year, new opportunities.
Together, we take this opportunity to reach greater Heights and plan for what we see ahead and beyond.







Moving Day!

Moving from Little India to Kaki Bukit.
Here is a quick glimpse of the journey to the new office.







New Office Space!

Since we started, we jump from cliff to cliff. The gap between the 2 cliffs get bigger and bigger after each jump. Every time when I reach the edge of the cliff, there is always a fear. A fear to fall. And wonder if I should go backwards. But each time I tell myself. It’s too far to go backwards. I just need to believe, take a deep breath. and jump forward.
This is our 5th moved. Before every move, there is always a struggle. After the struggle, it’s a new chapter. A new adventure. A new lesson.
May blessings be with us all





Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much for your contribution and support. Without you, we wouldn’t have gone this far. Here wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
