The Problem with Spontaneity 

The first 2 days in Jogja (Yogyakarta, Indonesia) to Prambanan, Borobudur and Mount Merapi were simply awesome. Today’s city tour was a disappointment. In fact, today’s feeling have been a chance to reflect how much city tour disappointment we experienced in the past at other countries. Probably next time, when I plan itinerary, I shall … Continue reading

Love Letter to my son, Dominique

Being a middle child is not easy. I understand how you feel because I am a middle child too. You may feel that you have been ignored.

Love Letter to my son, Robin

November 2010 My dear son Robin, 13 years ago on the night of 11 March, Papa and I went to KK Hospital for a tour to familiarize with the newly-opened hospital.

Adrenaline Junkie In Us

    Surely the most welcoming sight after 4 long days of walking was the mini-bus that brought the 9 of us to Pokhara Eco Resort. Bidding farewell to our 3 porters was a difficult thing to do. I got emotional and I tried hard to hide it. I didn’t really chat with the guys … Continue reading

At 2500 meters above sea level, the village has no phone, no wifi, no emails, no work to distract me. I played catching with the village children, met my sponsored daughter Meron and sponsored … Continue reading

Keep Your Goals Flexible

From the book: Simple Steps There’s another lesson we can learn, too, from that resourceful little ant I mentioned at the start of the chapter. That lesson is to keep your goals flexible. When that ant encountered something he was incapable of climbing over, he didn’t just keep walking straight into it again and again, … Continue reading

An amazing experience

THURSDAY, 25 AUG 2011 Procrastination has its repercussion. Tasks which were left undone came to haunt me: Marc emailed to me about my ex-boss’ Bertrand’s driving license. Bertrand’s driving licence was lost during the time of his relocation. So when he came to Singapore in June, he applied for a replacement personally at Traffic Police … Continue reading
