My service center operates around the clock. Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm (except for Public Holiday). I have religiously followed the weekly schedule every Tuesday 8pm to 10pm to meet the peoples at my service center.
I moved to a new place which is next door in May 2010 but we continue our service uninterrupted.

10. Personal Integrity
In the year 2009, I bought a house with the price of RM600,000. I took up 30 years loan and jointly financed by my parents, my wife and my own savings.
Other than that, I owned an apartment unit which I purchased in year 1999 and fully settled the loan sometime in 2005. The price is probably 120K now.
The vehicle I am owning is a 10 years old Proton Wira. The insurance company said it is probably 13K in value. I also have 4 bicycles (1 adult, 3 for kids) and the estimated total value is RM1000.
I don't own any stocks and I keep my Income Tax record up to date and paid my taxes.
The purchase of my property has become news, but it simply reaffirmed that I lead an honest life.
