Please do visit the other pages of this website to learn more about TROX products, and completed projects that I have done. Also, there is a page about what I do outside of work.
As the saying goes, ‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’. So, on this page I share with you what I do outside of work.
I enjoy my work, seriously, but I try my best to make time for leisure. Though sometimes the line is blurred between office hours and working hours.
For the longest time, I have been bringing my laptop along on vacations; checking in and replying to emails when the schedule permits.
