Welcome to my Treasure Trove. This is where I keep some of my good stuff. Please drop me a message to tell me that you have taken something.

I only add to the lcollection whenever I have something worthwhile, so do remember to come back occasionally. In the meantime, there are a few things you can already download.


If you are searching for CHESS games by Malaysian players in international events, you have come to the right place. The following are available for immediate download:

  • Saintly99-malaysia : Mas Hafizul's games from the QVB Saintly Cup tournament in Sydney, Australia in January 1999.
  • Cairnhill98-malaysia : selected games of the Malaysian players (Lim Chuin Hoong and Wong Chee Chung) at the 1998 Cairnhill open tournament in Singapore. (Sorry! This file is not available presently.)
  • Yangon98-malaysia : the games of the three Malaysian players (Mas Hafizulhelmi, Lim YeeWeng and Wong Zi-Jing) who played in the Yangon Zone 3.2a tournament in December 1998.

When these games were released on the Internet by the organisers, I was in two minds whether to put this file here. In my opinion, our players fared better than what the organisers portrayed in their selection.

  • FS-April97-malaysia : games by Ooi Chern Ee and Mas Hafizulhelmi at the April 1997 edition of the First Saturday tournaments in Budapest, Hungary. This tournament is notable for Mas Hafizulhelmi's impressive 100% score in the IM event.
  • Olympiad96-malaysia : the Malaysians (Jimmy Liew, Mok Tze Meng, Mas Hafizulhelmi, Ooi Chern Ee, Tan Wei Sin and Lim Yee Weng) at the Erevan Chess Olympiad in 1996.

You can use Winzip to unzip the games into PGN files. PGN files can be read by many chess-playing programmes, for example, ChessBase or Fritz. However, you can also use a chess viewer programme like SLICS. (Note: If you like to play live chess on the Internet, this programme can also help you connect to the chess servers.)

If you are a chess organiser, you would do well to download a Fide-approved DOS-based chess-pairing programme called Swiss-46. Note: this programme is only for running individual events.


I also have something for non-CHESS players. F'instance, an interesting photograph from the National Geographic magazine. It is the final word in Chinese cuisine!

Here is a story I wrote about the Malaysian Branch of the Manchester United Supporters' Club. This story appeared in The STAR's NORTH pages on 5-Nov-1999. n case you are interested, I also write the occasional concert and music reviews.

Have you ever experienced road rage while travelling on the Information Superhighway? Take control of yourself; do not let your emotions be the better of you... or else, you will end up like this person.

Do you know what a Scotsman has under his kilt? Here, take a peek. Unfortunately, the quality of the picture isn't good as it was lifted from a newspaper. It was snapped in the twilight of the last British outpost in the Far East: a few days before China finally embraced Hongkong in 1997.

Have a nice day!
