1. Just got back home at 9 pm this evening. It was an experience of a life time of 64 days - departed Singapore 27 Apr and back 29 June, completed part 1 of the Asean on Wheels journey in my Pajero with my old friend Sunny Loo, chalked up 14 440 kms, traversed through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and briefly ventured into Tachileik, Myanmar, and completed 11 border crossings. The Pajero held up very well throughout. Many high moments, thoroughly enjoyable and educational. Still, I am happy to be home, in familiar Singapore. The journey ended at my home in Springleaf Garden but we celebrated over whisky at Sunny's home.
2. Still to complete the blog for the Malaysia leg. Will consider a couple of summary blogs. It will be quite an adjustment to make, to get back to the routine at home. Also, will start researching for Asean on Wheels part 2, through the remaining ASEAN countries of Indonesia, Brunei and Philippine. Not sure about Myanmar though.
3. Thank you all for following our blogs and our journey. Hope you have enjoyed reading them and found something useful in them. Most important of all, thank you for your encouragement and support. They kept our spirits up, especially during trying moments.
