MY SG Festival Post

MY SG Festival Post is a mobile app that allows users to create beautiful festival greetings from a list of templates.

I built the website using React with Next.js and made the iOS and Android mobile app using React Native; the back end and database were hosted on Firebase.

Is It Licensed

A website that scrapes data from the Securities Commission Malaysia and provides insights into licensed or unlicensed companies to be operating in Malaysia.

I created the front end using React and built the back end and web scraper using Google Cloud functions, Node.js, and Puppeteer.


The landing page website for my software agency business.

I built a custom React component that allows a horizontal experience when scrolling vertically (Groftware.tech/experience). I created the front end with React and hosted it on Netlify. The form submission uses Netlify forms, which trigger a Slack and email webhook.

404 New Tab

A React-based Chrome extension allows users to see a random and interesting 404 page whenever a new tab is opened. This chrome extension reached the rank of the #3 product of the day on Product Hunt.


I developed a Swift-based video editing app back in 2017 that allows users to drag, drop, and stack video effects onto their videos. The app is built entirely in Swift, and no back end was used for this. I also implemented in-app purchasing for the premium version.


Supermom is Asia's largest eCommerce marketplace for parents.

I was one of the iOS contractors that took over an in-progress iOS app written in Objective-C. The app's functionality that I've worked on includes a cart system, checkout, and payment.

Aevo Exchange

A high-performance, decentralized crypto exchange specialized in derivatives (options and perpetual futures).

I've built the front-end from the ground up, from allowing users to connect their wallet and depositing USDC from Ethereum mainnet to trading options and perps instruments to withdrawals.
