Camporama ’09 was a blast!

More than 6 months of planning, weeks of meetings, hours in prayer and footprints of faith is what it took to make Camporama 2009 a reality. 10-12 churches and 700 people from all over Malaysia participated in this awesome experience. If there were more bunk beds, there wouldn’ve been more people! Kudos to the camp […]

Responsible Camping

I’ve been camping for most part of my life but only recently did I come across the term “responsible tourism (RT)” – or “responsible camping” in my case. Not only did I stumble on RT, I now have to wrap my brains around it to get a handle of RT for Wild Asia’s Responsible Tourism […]

Ari Moyang at Pulau Carey

It’s astounding how much of the Malaysian culture is hidden from the public eye. Although I’m not entirely new to the kampong lifestyle or even interactions with the indigenous people (orang asli) – this particular visit to Pulau Carey last week shed new light to the Malaysian indigenous culture.

Ampang lookout point

Another exploration – this time to Ampang Lookout Point. It’s quite secluded and I don’t think much people know about until and unless the word gets around.

Exploring KL by foot

It is extremely ironic that I’ve yet to fully explore KL city when other cities intrigue me to the core. I roam the streets and alleys of Hanoi, whistle my way through the blocks of Melbourne and New York and exhausted my steps in the tiny city of Perth – yet I still don’t remember […]

Counting Down New Year In Hanoi (Day 8)

New Year’s eve back in Hanoi. We arrived in the wee hours of the morning pushing through touts at the train station and finally taking a taxi to our hotel. Half asleep we checked in and almost in an instant we found ourselves back in bed until late morning. Our 2nd last day in Hanoi, […]

A stroll in Sapa (Day 7)

Our final day in Sapa. We woke up to cloudy skies, it was a good thing we did all the outdoor stuff yesterday as the weather was awesome. Thank You Jesus! It would have been a waste if we had done the outdoorsy stuff today – fog was thick and temperature had dropped significantly. God […]

The Great 14km Walk! (Day 6)

It’s sunny and bright today. We woke up to promising weather that was to carry on the entire day. Thank You Jesus for opening up the skies revealing the gorgeous sun! We rented a jeep, a seriously beaten up jeep that requires a few steps on the brakes before it works! A local driver brought […]
