Who we are?
Hi and welcome to our blog. Let me start by introducing myself.
I’m Joe – an IT guy currently living in the southern region of Malaysia. I am the founder of QOBC dot com (since 2004) which started as a blog talking about WordPress and Mobile Apps. (Update: In 2020, I have decided to convert the blog to a business site).
Besides me, Amy is my partner, and she mainly writes in our Chinese language backpacking travel blog.
We speak & write in English (most of our clients’ language), Chinese Mandarin (our mother tongue), and Bahasa Malaysia (our National language). We also understand a few local dialects, i.e.: Hokkien, Cantonese, etc.
- English 75% 75%
- Chinese 简体中文 / 繁體中文 90% 90%
- Bahasa Malaysia / Melayu 90% 90%
- Other Dialects (Hokkien/ Cantonese) 70% 70%

What we do?
We make a living online. Besides blogging and creating videos, we’re providing WordPress solutions and Web-related services. Please click here to read more about our services.
I am an electronics engineering graduate, but I never work in any electronics firm nor as an electronics engineer.
I was working in IT firm for past 14 years, i.e.: 7 years in a local IT company and another 7 years in a web company. I’m now a freelancer working from anywhere with an internet connection (since 2016).
In order to offer affordable web & digital solutions to small-sized local businesses, we moved to a Smart Home-Office (SHO) in Johor Bahru (Malaysia GMT +8) in 2016. In additional to the SHO, we set up a Mobile Office in 2018, so we can hit the road and provide value from anywhere. These low-cost setups help us to cut down unnecessary costs and return the savings to our customers.

Facts: Live, Eat & Hobby
Please follow us on Instagram, Facebook & YouTube.
We live in Johor Bahru, Malaysia (we are just 2KM away from Asia financial hub – Singapore).
Johor Bahru is a small multi-racial city, as well as a vibrant, lively, beautiful city.
Most of the time, we will cook at home rather than eating out.
Our favorite foods are Pizza (Italian), Sushi (Japanese), Nasi Lemak (Malaysian) & Roti Canai (Indian). We are on a healthy Vegetarian diet.
Our hobby – travelling, is not only an ultimate adventure, but it also exposes us to new friends & different ways of living.
Since 2006, we backpacked to over 20 countries across Asia & Europe.
