The root goes back to my childhood. We were poor and livelihood was a problem. My mum struggle to raise my siblings and me up. Dad have to support 2 family because he has two wives. Mum had to sell candy, sweets and gambling game to kids in the neighborhood to feed us. End of the day, I would help her glued those losing ticket back together and sell them again. I was 8 or 9 years old at that time. I was already a cheat under circumstances since a very young age.

Mum tried hard but we will never have enough, feeding us, sending us to school and paying the bills was the most important thing.
