KUALA LUMPUR: As a young boy, Cheeming Boey had big dreams of becoming a comic artist. Many people discouraged him, however, telling him that he could never earn a living that way.

Nonetheless, the plucky chap stuck to his guns, and his hard work paid off. His book, the autobiographical comic When I Was a Kid 3, took first prize in the non-fiction category at the recent Popular-The Star Readers Choice Awards (RCA).
