My traveling to some countries in Asia was either connected with my studies, my job, my mission projects and just for fun and enjoyment with family and friends.
Is it really enjoyable to travel?
Of course my answer is a humongous yes. There is something peculiar in traveling, most especially when it’s your first time in a strange country with a different culture outside your cultural norms. You will feed your curiosity by trying to taste the foods that you never eat yet.
I was privileged to study in Singapore for scholarship programs several times and I really enjoyed those priceless memories so every time I miss this place I go back to that country and make new memories again.
These were years I explored Singapore and became a second home to me. Southeast Asia became my favorite destination because if you are in Singapore you have access to visit also the neighboring countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and the rest.
1988 – my first International travel with my sister, we attended a medical
equipment fair in World Trade Center in Singapore.
1989 Tung Ling Bible School – short basic Bible course.
1999 ACTI internship program in Cross Cultural Missions

I visited also some of these countries in Asia with definite purposes and directions from God as a volunteer missionary and now I can call myself a mission mobilizer and mentor in mission works to train younger missionaries to be more effective in church planting and evangelistic mission works .

Double is your enjoyment when you travel with friends. Its full of laughters even in the long walking with so many stuff and excess baggages, it doesn’t really matter as long as you stay together and you want to seize every place taking photos capturing the beauty of the spot and to look back later when you go back to your home land.
Next time I will tell my anecdotes in Indonesia and Thailand.
God is so Good to me. I Praise Him !
