He officially joined as UltimateAir’s “super-electrician” after completing his degree.

He is married to his lovely wife and has a handsome 3 year old boy. Ming likes to play soccer, "although he cannot finish a game anymore 'cause he has gained some unnecessary weight.” He loves the atmosphere of his work; "Like a big family, everyone knows each other and cares for each other.”
