2010 June 2010,  i fired my boss before he did his part. 2 months later, i came to know agarwood in a driving trip to Mae sai, Thailand. A friend of mine wanted to buy a hand crafting buddha statue, where the shop owner informed us the wood was agarwood-made (to be exact it was Sandalwood). At that time i knew nothing about agarwood and sandalwood. Once returned from the 13-day-driving trip, as a spider, i started to web the agarwood on the net.
2011 April 2011, purchased a piece of 3-acre land in Mantin, Negeri Sembilan. The land was planted with ready-to-harvest oil palm crop, however we decided land clearing for agarwood planting.

    interesting that you grow different species. What species would get the best results. I understand that some species would be more dense hardwood, good for carving. Why do you choose A sinensis.
    Would like to visit your farm sometime in the future.

      We don’t plant what we want, we plant what demand wants.
      I told number of people to conduct a survey in Agarwood shops along Jalan Bukit Bintang, KL, the survey itself will hint you what customers wants.
      I choose Sinensis because of its fastest growth among them.


    I wonder why you sold your farm to NCM Gaharu project?
