Last year OP Yusuf was invited to be Wardrobe's Man of the Year 2016 (Wardrobe is an upmarket bespoke tailoring store. Its tailors and cutters are trained in Saville Row)

Confirmed with OP Yusuf the Billboard featuring the above is still there intact, at the intersection in Bangsar. In fact there's also a bigger one at the VIP Car Park IOI Mall Putrajaya.

Altogether 8 suits were tailored. A New York trained photograper was commissioned to shoot the photos. OP Yusuf was also featured on the cover of THE GRID the upmarket magazine (that's for another day!)


The Modern day Explorer
We've seen OP Yusuf as the Modern day Explorer with his intrusions into many corners of the globe as a gypsetting traveler and photographer. A glimpse of a guy who is now touching 71 years but accomplishing exploits of those of a younger age.

The Haiku
Boundless energy
At home at many places
All in a package

  7. Yusuf would love your haiku ... no doubt he'd frame it for his wall! I loved it too, by the way.

  8. It is the first I have heard of him, but it looks like he is keeping busy.

  9. Yusuf Hashim has certainly lived an exciting life. I would love to go on one of his jaunts he opens to the regular public. I'm a decade younger but fear I would have a hard time keeping up with him.

    1. Apparently there was a couple who went on one of the trips who were much older than Yusuf himself. Age is just a number so they say!
