Dear Charles, Kelly, Shannon, Cindy and Vianne

This writing below is dedicated to you folks,

All of us shared many many life events, stories, jokes, hurt, woes, aspirations and goals during our 5 days together as an elite team. There were lots of tears, hugs, laughter and encouragment during our participation in activities and of course meal times and drinking session.

It was an honour for me to be with you folks and it was very heartwarming, touching and enlightening. We all found something or different things "deep inside" back into our life again, reinforcing why we were here, what we were here and who was it for. Thank you all for sharing matters so deep into your hearts and opening it up for all and touching each other's heart and soul.

As we returned home back to our normal life again, our interactions may not be like the times we had together during the 5 days stay, however, we will always remember those times we shared together. The special bonds we developed would stay with each and all of us, helping each and one another to encourage, support and rally everybody to reach for their greatest heights.

Dedicated to my special team mates, wishing everybody all the best in whatever goals you seek to achieve. Not forgetting, thanks to our Founder....

" ...... From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother ...... "

William Shakespeare

Indonesia Adventures (Puncak & Jakarta) ~ 7th May 2007 to 11th May 2007

I was part of a team of awesome friends/colleagues, namely, Charles, Kelly, Shannon, Cindy and Vianne, that were selected to follow our BIG Boss, Mr Hoo to Jakarta, Indonesia, assisting him in his regional training. It was a great honour and I was really proud and happy to be part of this unique and specially selected team.

We left Singapore on 7th May 2007 on the early morning 0740hrs flight and reached Jakarta, in about 1hr 15mins. Upon arrival, we were picked up and took a 2.5hrs of driving to reach a beautiful resort called Hotel YASMIN, in Puncak, whereby we stayed for 4 days. Do check out their homepage below:


As we were there to help out in training, I did not manage to take a lot of photographs of the resort. Just some simple photos.....

It was an eye-opener and humbling experience for me especially and I learned a lot from this short trip, from the participants and my fellow special team mates. It was heartwarming, intense sharing and building special bonds were created between our team and making new friendships with our friends in Indonesia.

On the fourth day evening, the training seminar ended. It was a unbelievable 4 days of learning, sharing, participation and training. Many new friendships, a great atmosphere of joy, singing and strong bonds were laid down forever in my heart and soul.

After that, we went down the mountain range, for a 2hrs drive back to Jakarta. On our 5th day, we had about half day of R&R, and we had 2 lovely friends, Fano and Niken to bring us around. We had a really fun time shopping and looking around .... especially the 5 ladies.

Soon, it was time to return back home to Singapore. Looking back over the past few days, the experiences that I went through would always be a part of my heart and soul. I would always treasure the time I spent with my team mates and my new friends made.
