About Me

Boon Ming. BooNBoX. Having his full name as NG Boon Ming, which literally translated as ‘yellow civilization’ in chinese, he is extremely volatile in the world of internet as he would appear out of nowhere. (Look behind!) Being born in the year of Tiger, 1986, he certainly has the guts to go beyond and willing to take a measurable level of risks in dealing his daily tasks. He comes from Kuala Lumpur, the ‘democratic’ capital of Malaysia and found that democracy is just a shadow in his origin. He agrees that the development of ‘flexibility’ in his personality is surely nurtured when he grew in this country, and proved to be very useful in his managerial tasks.

He is physically huge and since primary 4 he has grown horizontally. The ratio (of horizontal versus vertical) is simply outrageous! Thus he gained a nickname “the BEAR” from the children in an orphanage that he visited during his 12-day-trip in Vietnam.

the bear has just destroyed a chair in Vietnam.. ARGH!!!  

Life in University

He is now studying in Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University to complete his B.E. in Materials Science and Engineering which he found that the course is even more sophisticated that his personal relationships. He is completing his junior year and currently busily involved in several self-initiated programs including MSA Production. It is a self-help film production where he will gather Malaysians with similar passion of film productions to produce a compilation of short videos, starts with zero line of scripts!! He loves his university life and enjoys it thus far. He finds the university life as fulfilling especially when he becomes a volunteer for NTU Welfare Service Club under the chapter of Youth, where he will be dealing with youths in the Boys Hostel. It’s a challenging yet fulfilling task for him.

He is currently very active in searching for voluntary networks.

He can simply use one word to summarize his experience in the university thus far — WONDERFUL !!



June, 2007 – Cambodia (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap)/ Vietnam (Ho Chin Minh)

July, 2007 – Sabah, Malaysia

June, 2008 – Hong Kong/ Shenzhen/ Macau (going there again this year end)

July, 2009 – Kuala Terengganu/Redang Island, Malaysia

He enjoys travel. Since he got his passport 1.3 years ago he has been to total of 3 countries with his own effort. He would like to thank to his family and friends who supported him in any way. Talk about exotic experience, he admits that seeing his first Cambodian friend eating (plus chewing) a full plastic bag of crickets would be too gross for him to do so. Nevertheless, it has been an AMAZING experience to stay with his wonderful friend at his house in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. He spent total of 4 days there. The recent country that he went was Vietnam where actually it’s a combined trip of Cambodia and Vietnam. He believes that after surviving the traffic in Ho Chi Minh city for 2 weeks there’s nothing can stop him anymore. At HCM city too he had his first experience of getting rob (almost!). Meeting brilliant friends and people is surely one of the rewards of travelling aside from seeing the great culture of other country.

The next big event of his life, was his very very first backpacking travelling to Hong Kong, China and Macao for 15 days of non-stop exciting moments. The very first backpacking trip where he planned everything from scratches and to survive in a minimum budget in a foreign land! It was a great experience!



Well you can’t separate Boon Ming and Internet physically… … … … well at least mentally! 😉 He spent at least 2 hours a day in front of his computer (oh my god!). This is actually his nth blog (where n approaches infinity) and hopefully it can be his last and forever one!


25 Random Things About Me

1. Everyone thinks I’m a good boy. I was once a hyperactive plus super naughty kid before.

2. I used to steal snacks from an old lady bicycle store for quite some time and I almost get caught. Luckily my compliance managed to stop and saved my ass. I stopped stealing since then.

3. I was thinking of becoming a taxi driver, policeman and firefighter before during my primary schooltime. I thought about being a private detective before.

4. From UPSR, PMR, SPM, STPM: I got total of 24As, 4Bs and 1T. T = Tidak Hadir (absent). I missed my UPSR Mathematics examination just simply I didn’t know the time of examination. (so sotong lor!!) 

5. I was once asked by teacher to carry a banner “懒惰虫 Lazy Worm” around the school when I was young. Extremely lazy! =P

6. I considered my “most handsome” (really handsome plus slim) period was when I was 4 – 9 years old. Will show you photos.


7. A girl had a crush on me when I was in primary school, but I was too young to understand it.

8. I once sent 123 handwritten entries to Warner Records Malaysia just to win a Linkin Park plaque. I got it! :)

9. My family moved 3 times before settling down in the house we own now.

10. WordPress is my third blog. I used blogspot first then switched to multiply before settling down here. I started blogging in 2005.

11. During meal time, I prefer to finish dish by dish, save the one I like the most til the end. And most of the time I prefer quantity over quality.

12. My first time skipping classes was during my Form 4(Chinese class). Remember the first time I skipped with friends to play bowling.

13. I swore that I’d never come to Singapore before, and yet I’m ending up here now.

14. The lowest point in my self-esteem was during Sep – Nov last year, and it’s recovering now.

15. I’m still a virgin. Nothing to be proud or to be shame of.


16. I fell into a pool with pig shit before, when I was around 10.

17. I once put a flying firecracker facing downwards in a beer bottle outside a balcony of a condominium, and when exploded the glass shattered just in front of a 60-year-old old aunty that came visiting my family.

18. Coincidentally, the 2 TV drama characters I like the most both have the same name, they are Jack (Lost – Jack Shepard/24 – Jack Bauer). 

19. I had been a part time DJ on internet radio channel.

20. I was in a band gig as a keyboardist (just for 1 song) and a rapper for 1 time in the public. (funny experience)

21. I once tried to stay awake for 5 nights in a row. I survived.

22. My best condition is when I am without sleep for a night and I get high easily and performing extremely well then.

23. I am quite a self-conscious person, but lazy to take action to fix myself. I am also a very competitive person.

24. When I am determined in getting something and I am sure that I want that, I will try my best to get it in whatever ways that I want and I will make sure that I spent all my effort and use the last resort to get it. Luckily this rarely happens.

25. Sometimes I am totally random. Totally crazy.
