I started a part- time job as a waiter in a Chinese restaurant where I met James Chan, the owner of the restaurant and as well as the Director of Students Affair s of the Malaysian Institute of Art( MIA).Very soon Chan discovered my art talent especially my Chinese horse painting. Chan was shocked when knowing that these Chinese horse paintings were done as I was self-taught. Thus Chan decided to organize a solo Chinese horse painting for me.

My solo Chinese horse painting exhibition was held at the Chin Woo Art Gallery at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with great success and received good reviews. I was only 19 years old that year and became the youngest artist who had held solo art show in Malaysia.

I felt very lucky because my Chinese horse paintings had gained great recognitions from 8 renowned artists .I felt thankful to them for writing complimentary inscriptions in my paintings as an encouragement.
