Welcome to my Blog.
I am a broker working in the futures and financial derivatives industry. Outside of the office, I love MMORPG games, Tennis, collecting boutique guitars and karting.
It has been some time since I wanted to sample a blogging experience. Perhaps the attraction was that blogging allowed me to formulate and capture my thoughts of the moment.
Ultimately, it has been my recent entry into karting that finally motivated me to create a blog.
Aside from my private thoughts on social aspects of life, I wanted to create a blog capturing my first year of karting. This was the case having been inspired after reading blogs kept by fellow karters who detailed the ups and downs and the steep learning curve of the sport.
Karting is a wonderful sport where it is auto racing at its rawest. Unfortunately, there is not enough reading material or information on the Internet. What material that is available tends to cater to the karting scene in Europe or the United States.
Hopefully, the journal entries of my karting experiences will be useful reading material for enthusiats in Singapore and around Asia who are keen to take up karting and who expect to come to terms with the same struggles that local enthusiats face in this corner of the globe.
Feel free to correspond with me on any of your thoughts and ideas. My karting journals can be perused via the content links below.
