Firdaus Tarmizi

About Me

My name is Firdaus Tarmizi, currently living in Penang with my wife and son.  Friends call me Pedot, and my family calls me Yop (Perakian title for the eldest male in the family, or “brother”)

I was born in Penang, raised there for 6 years, before my family moved to Ipoh.  I went through all of my years of primary and secondary education in Perak.

I went to University if Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in the United States from 2002 to 2006 for my degree in Actuarial Science.  Do not ask me why Actuarial Science, because it’s a story needing more than 10 pages of writing.

As fate would have it, I am now back in Penang for an indeterminate period of time.  I found that I am loving Penang more than any other places I’ve been, except maybe Urbana Champaign.  Of course, this does not take into account Penang’s hellish traffic.

I love to read and, to a smaller degree, write.  I am also slowly becoming a health enthusiast.

As my thank you gesture to you for reading my boring short autobiography, here’s a picture of me harassing my son.


Wait don't kiss me now GEEZ people are watching
