Previously, he never thought to buy a house because his company was providing accommodation and this actually beneficial for him as he can save some money.
“14 years ago, I dropped out school and moved to Selangor from Negeri Sembilan. I engaged with multiple business, at the beginning my goal is to earn more money. Whichever companies that offer me higher salary and will look for those companies able to provide staff accommodation, it does save the trouble of renting or buying a house.”
After married, he believes he need to provide his wife and two children a comfortable home and buying a house is an inevitable things to do.
He said that at present time, his wife and children are staying in Ipoh with his in law family, his wife was teaching in her hometown.
