Pardon the late reply, as I was busy catching up on what I've been missing
out on life over the past week! I too, am glad to have worked with such
engaged and collaborative guys in writing the proposal   so thanks guys for
the experience!

Warmest regards,
Huei Ming

P.S.: I can only claim so much of the writing credit, since the bulk of my
effort is rewriting based on Ricky, Paul and Jerry's input! And since I'm
Malaysian and not Singaporean that rounds it up to a nice round number of 5
countries! :D
