NST Interviews Malaysian Internet Marketers Who are Making Five Figures Income From the Internet

May 12, 2007 by  

The New Strait Times has recently published a story about several Malaysian who are making money on the Internet. The article featured three full-time Malaysian Internet entrepreneurs namely Samsul Zamzuri Abu Bakar (Alang), Gobala Krishnan and Liew Cheon Fong.

This is the kind of story that inspires people as it proves to them that there are ways to make real money online without getting involved in the dangerously popular get rich quick schemes.

Alang’s five figures income is derived from more than 15 websites. He got several blogs where he hires bloggers from countries like the US , and New Zealand to write the content.

His top revenue earners are directory websites where people pay to get listed. His number two money-earner is his first website at


Gobala makes most of his income from selling e-books and software and currently making between RM20,000 to RM30,000 per month. Yes he’s making that much apparently.

And last but not least, a guy who probably doesn’t need an introduction. Liew is the owner of one of the most popular blogs in Malaysia at

This story has actually recharged my motivation and reminded me to stop from being complacent. I need to realign my priorities and focus on things that really matters. Am I on track to achieve my goals by December 2007?

Anyway, you can read the articles here and here.

Very inspirational article for all Malaysians, especially the fact Malaysia is trying to encourage more Malaysians to be tech savvy and with the initiative of Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) in which I see is a dead project abandoned by the current PM, Malaysia actually has the potential to be excellent in this IT world.
