Zain Abbas, an expatriate residing in Kuala Lumpur wrote in after he read the Find The ‘Dinesh’ Of Your Life story by Jonathan Allen Yabut featured in our pullout of Sept 27, 2014.
“Remarkable comeback story! If anyone wants to see how ‘never give up’ works, just look at Dinesh’s landing. I was fortunate to have found out at the right time about his success story when I was embarking on my entrepreneurial journey which has it’s ups and downs.”
“In a way, he taught me to be firm, determined, believe in myself and move ahead. His perseverance teaches all of us to live life to the fullest and ‘never give up’. Best of luck Dinesh for the future.”
In our Merdeka issue of Aug 30, 2014 we ran a story about The day they shouted Merdeka! featuring several people who were actually in the stadium that historic day.
One story pictured Khoo Lan Phek as she was then, aged 17. Almost immediately, we received an email from the daughter of Datin Kalsom Abid who had been seeking her high school friend for decades. So the two friends reunited almost 60 years after parting ways, and shared this photo with us.
