nathaniel tan has faith in Malaysia. Born in Dec 1980 (presents, presents!) at Pantai Hospital, I thereafter lived in Damansara Utama (Selangor, Malaysia), and attended Villamaria Kindergarden and SRK DU (UPSR), during which I moved to where I’m writing this now – Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (KL) – and soon after attended Sri Cempaka (SPM – Moral: C5), Sunway College (A-Levels – Physics: C) and Harvard College (BA, Special Concentration: Peace and Conflict Studies – GPA: Low!) – in that order, as far as i can remember.
Some of the more offbeat places I’ve had a chance to spend some time in: Dili, East Timor (10 days in early 2001); Freetown, Sierra Leone (6 weeks in mid 2003, 4 spent with the UN-GOSL SCSL) and in Banda Aceh, Indonesia (about 3-4 months early/mid 2005 with JRS Indonesia).
Some slightly more offbeat places I’ve ‘studied’ – South Orange, New Jersey; Yellow Springs, Ohio, The (Red?) Center for High Energy Metaphysics, and The Hague. Wish I were more in touch with friends from all those places..
Updates 29/6/07 – I started working with KeADILan in March of 2007 with Tian Chua, and as of June 2007, branched out on my own to set up an organisation called JustNetworks to take on an ambitious number of projects.
Enough links for ya? :)
I like people :) Leave a note :)
I also love politikus :) a lot <3
Updates 17/8/08 – There’s a lot to catch up on :P I worked with Anwar Ibrahim as an employee of the Foundation for the Future, June 2007 to March 2008, when he resigned from his positions at the Foundation. In July 2007, I got arrested by the cops, and Li Tsin (who I really miss) saved my butt, along with much help and support from everyone throughout the saga to whom I am still eternally grateful. We won the elections in March 2008. In about August 2008, I started working with my dad in finance.. :) Maybe that wasn’t so much after all……
I feel that many things about me have changed over time, walking through the years….
