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.
