Dave Ching, cigar merchant
One of the most likable fellows in the local Malaysian cigar scene, Dave Ching has been a pillar for years. Just over a year ago, he opened a cigar store called Maduro, fulfilling a dream he's had for many years, as long as i've known him as a friend. The store is going strong, with a solid base of customers. It recently added a kitchen with a great chef who performs magic on the stove. And the walk in humidor has a great selection of fantastic cigars, easily the most extensive catalogue of any retail humidor in Malaysia.
Things are looking up, i'm happy for him. Here he is, smoking a perennial favourite, the Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto.
