17 Nov 2010: 108 Sun Salutation for Charity with Huay Lin

Robyn is 12 years old!

On this Sunday afternoon, Huay Lin (Jin's yoga teacher) led us on a 108 Sun Salutation routine. We spent some time warming up followed by about 2 hours of repeating 108 sun salutations! This was a charity exercise that Huay Lin has dreamt of doing for this year. We raised a total of $1200.80 (formed by the 7 people in the pic) for Project Helping Hand.


25-28 Nov 2010: Return to Tigerland Rice Farm in Chiang Rai

With the help of the People's Association, 3 Singaporean families spent a week experiencing rice harvesting at Tigerland Rice Farm on 20-26 Nov 2010.

We also returned to Tigerland Rice Farm to visit Kitt, Father Gun and Mother Tomei, and to plan for 2011 programs.

This time, we flew to Chiang Mai to meet old pal Eric Low, who kindly drove us to Chiang Rai the next day in his 4WD Pajero.

Enroute to Chiang Rai, we stopped by at a Hot Spring for loo break, hot tea and to soak our feet in the piping hot spring water for good health. The water was amazingly hot and there was a bubbling pool that the locals boil quail eggs in!

Football 1-0

Coincidentally, the Karen Tour Guide Association was challenging a government office team in a football match and we all joined in to cheer them on. Anthony Wong was even fielded as a defender. Kitt and Father Gun played courageously to lose 1-0!

Robyn made new friends in Julian and Ashley, who just completed their rice harvesting with Michele and Erlena.

After lunch, we hit the road in two 4WD and headed for Chiang Rai city for coffee, and then Eric took us back to Chiang Mai. We returned to Singapore the next day.

We look forward to another exciting year in 2011 in which we'll bring more Singapore families to discover the wonders of nature and rice farming at
