Stopest (M) Sdn Bhd founder Ang Tan Loong said he wanted to share his life journey with the public, adding that in life, there was always a second chance.
“This is an opportunity for me to inspire others and tell them to never give up on life.
“I want people to know how I transformed myself from a pest in society to a pest controller.
“From a social reject, God has turned me into someone useful for society,” he added.
Tan Loong came up with the idea of coming out with a book about his journey to motivate youngsters.
He launched the book, titled From a Pest to Pest Controller, with his wife Rachel Ang at Dream Centre in Petaling Jaya.
The 55-year-old said he was grateful for the overwhelming support he received from parents who attended the soft launch of the book.
“They (parents) asked me about coping with children who are addicted to drugs.
“My answer is always the same –send them to drug rehabilitation centres and support them throughout the process.
“Parents must intervene when they find out that their children have started to smoke.
“For some youngsters, smoking can be the first step towards becoming a drug addict,” Tan Loong said when met at the book launch.
He thanked guests who attended the event, adding that proceeds from the sale of his book would be donated to two drug rehabilitation centres in Kuala Lumpur, namely Tower of Love and New Creation Centre.
From a Pest to Pest Controller
is sold at RM20 at Canaanland Bookshop in Petaling Jaya and Kota Kinabalu.
