1. At last, the Pajero is home. The car arrived in Singapore in a container from Surabaya on 25 Dec. Collected the car from Keppel Distripark yesterday, 28 Dec - the first working day after the festive weekend. With Yong Peng of Toll Logistics with me, it was a breeze clearing Singapore Customs and getting the car out of the Free Trade Zone. Its unpacking today.

2. There are still 2 countries outstanding in my Asean on Wheels journey - Myanmar and Philippine. I am not sure about the possibility of Myanmar, as I made hardly any headway since I put the request early this year to the Myanmar Embassy here in Singapore for a self drive holiday in Myanmar. The prospect of doing a trip to Philippine was looking promising as Philippine Department of Tourism was helping with getting the necessary approval for me until I decided to drop Philippine in the last trip due to insufficient time. I will have to start exploring this again, some time next year, 2010.


  1. Hi, Neo Chian. Welcome back and it was truly a great thing for you to share with so many people following on your blog.

    Take care and wish U a good year ahead... and good health.


  2. Thank you, Felix. All the best to you too, for the new year. For me, it is always good discipline to maintain the blog, to record what I saw and experience as I continue the journey. If not, 6 mths from now, I would probably get the dates, people and events all mixed up.

  3. Good that it arrived just in time before the new year! Wishing you all the best for 2010 and looking forward to your next blog!

  4. Dear Christine,
    Thank you and all the best for the new year to you and your family too.

  5. Hello Neo,

    Happened to see the Asean On Wheels decal on a 3 Dr Pajero at Changi T2 last sunday. Didnt expect to find such interesting read here. Very inspiring, hopefully I can get to do the same in the near future. Keep on posting!


  6. Dear Kwan,
    Glad you enjoyed reading the blog. Hope you will find it useful in planning your own trips when they come along.
