I want to travel the whole world. 🌍
This is how I am gonna do it:

From Batam to Bandung, from Kerinci to Komodo, I have been to Indonesia 9 times.
I have finally cleared my leftover Rupiah.
It's been nice but honestly, I am not in love with this country. I guess I won't be going back any time soon. at Jomblang Cave
Mount Merapi was shy that day, hiding behind the clouds. So we didn't climb her.
Swipe to see her from the top! (Actually I don't know if that's her) at Mount Merapi
Recent events make me think I need to go to the temple to pray more. at Prambanan Tample
Be willing to say no, and walk away.
Works for bargaining at street shops as well as life and business. at Sewu Temple (Candi Sewu)
Finally here after seeing pictures of it for so long. at Borobudur Temple
Come at me, world! at Punthuk Setumbu
Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.
Have you ever heard a quote and felt, damn, that hit me right in the heart?
Imagine hearing that live from the coaches of coaches, the guru of gurus - @tonyrobbins himself.
If there’s anything from the 4-day seminar I just attended that made the most impact, it would be this.
You see, recently I’ve been feeling unfulfilled.
I’m earning all this money while working so guiltily little, and I have the freedom to travel whenever I want, yet I feel that something is missing.
It’s not the material goods; I barely go shopping.
It’s not the travel; I still love visiting new countries.
But something… meaningful.
I find it hard to get out of bed in the morning because nothing excites me. I understood I needed to find a purpose in my life. A passion. A calling. Whatever you name it.
And I realize whenever I craft a speech, or when I practice it, and especially when I deliver it to my club, I feel… alive.
I don’t know if this is my calling or not, but for this 1 year at least, I have decided to commit fully to my Toastmasters journey.
I believe that everyone has a story to tell and a message to share.
And I am gonna do my absolute best to help my club members and Toastmasters I meet along this journey to find that message.
And no, I am not gonna stop travelling. My ultimate dream is still to visit all countries in the world. In fact, I am flying off this Saturday again. 😁 hehe
But when I am at my home base (photo, photo), this is what I am focusing on.
I welcome you to join me over at @owen_ter as I document my journey as Club President of Jurong Green English Toastmasters Club.
Or even better, I welcome you to visit my club. at Song Kol Lake
They call this the 7 bulls.
But I count more than 7. at Jeti-Oguz
I'm at Unleash the Power Within right now and Tony Robbins literally just shared a story about him taking polo lessons and riding horses.
Such a great storyteller.
So here's a photo with me and a horse. at Song-Kul Lake, Krgyzstan
I swear the sun rays that shined on me was natural 😎 at Kyrgyzstan
Kyrgyzstan is a relatively untouched place.
Limited English, comparatively few tourists, traveller's diarrhoea, no Uber/Grab, tough treks, underdeveloped infrastructure, getting lost during treks, beautiful nature, body aches all over... Quickly go before mass tourism hits it! at Ala-Kul
Always have time to stop and appreciate a litte waterfall. #kyrgyzstan at Ala-Kul
Red canyons, snow-capped mountains and greenery.
Beautiful. at Jeti-Oguz
Have you ever ridden a horse downhill? It is scary as hell!
It feels just like a bumpy roller coaster ride as you're holding on to dear life, not knowing when the horse is gonna gallop suddenly and fearing you'll fall off the horse, or the horse fall off the hill.
I'm so done with horse trekking. Body aches all over. 😰 at Song-Kul Lake, Krgyzstan
This is probably the hardest trek I've ever done.
Super brutal ascents, steep descents and a series of unfortunate events that caused us to held on to dear lives, crossing the strong currents and racing against the sunlight.
11 hours of non-stop trekking that ended with multiple scars, bruises and body aches. And then another 3 hours again the next day. 😰
Ala-Kul, for a moment I thought you got us. 💪 at Ala-Kul Pass, Kyrgyzstan
No longer a digital nomad, but a real nomad now. 😎🦅 The Kyrgyz were nomadic people and even now, many of them still live in these huts called Yurts.
Throughout the mountainous plains in Kyrgyzstan, the families welcome travellers in with food and warm blankets - of course, for a little fee.
I'm glad to have the chance to stay in a yurt after a gruelling 11hrs trek. at Altyn Arashan
Would love to have pet eagles 🦅 at Jeti-Ögüz District
I'm home! #kyrgyzstan at Ala Archa National Park
