Despite Without A Cent

Our Story in Bellingham – an invitation to say YES!

Dreams Unlimited @BELLINGHAM

One of our Couchsurfing hosts, owner of The Table and Bellingham Pasta Co., Katie shared on our Facebook page: “Bellingham is a better place today because of these two.” Being stranded, almost homeless; and definitely sleepless in Seattle in June this summer – we were this close to packing up and moving on from the […]


A personal appeal from Tay and Val: We (really) need your help to keep going

The death of our laptop

Dear Families and Friends, How are you since we last connected? We are finally in Los Angeles, and Val has just completed her first audition in Hollywood last Friday. As we each take one more step closer to our dreams, we wish the same for you, too. Simultaneously, we had planned to screen our films […]


Sharing at Casa Cakchiquel – the house of many fires

The fire of Casa Cakchiquel

“I’d like you to meet my friend, Robert. He is making his dream come true by restoring an old house. It is his dream house.” Helga said to us one morning. On first thoughts, we were like “Uhh… dream house? Some rich man buying over an old house and restoring its extravagance so that he […]


33! Celebrate An Appetite for Life!

We sat on the pavement outside The Bake Shop and finished BOTH the blueberry and strawberry buns at one go!

A week before my birthday, Val asked me, “How do you want to celebrate your birthday?” Without even thinking, I (Tay) said, “No need to celebrate. It’s just another day, which is no different from any other day.” Val insisted and the night before my birthday, she gave me an instruction, “We have to wake […]


Mayan Homestay Experience – “Lemar”, cual es tu sueño?

When we were making decisions to travel through Latin America, we decided that we’d take shuttles/buses whenever we have to cross borders. Having to transport our equipment, bicycles and ourselves safely across immigration was simply not worth the risk. And so, we got into Lake Atitlan, Guatemala from San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico; […]


We got connected!

Where we left off in Japan: We left our last Japan’s post on working at University of Tokyo, Todai (see post here). People commented to us, “You’d think that 2 girls cycling around the world – WOW! And then you’d expect to see action photos on their website; but instead, here’s this huge plug plugged […]


Days in Todai, Tokyo, Japan

Yuri’s house is next to the University of Tokyo, affectionately referred to as Todai by the locals. And she told us one morning, “You can go Todai T-Lounge. Free tables and chairs and power. No need to pay.” And so begun our campus days in Todai, living it up as university students would – with […]


Day 2 in Japan

We did some research about living expenses in Japan. And whilst on Skype with our friend Yuki one night, we decided that McDonald’s was our cheapest option for food. True enough, our first meal in Japan, at Ueno Train Station was – 3 McDonald’s meals! The next morning… It was more than anything we could […]


A note to an Angel

Do you believe in Angels? We do. In the last week before we finally set off on the plane, our lives were filled with them. One of which, this entry is dedicated to. Dear Swee Kian, We didn’t tell you how mad we were with the news article But you turned out to be one […]


Going “HD (high definition)”

It all started when Val scratched Tay’s glasses by accident, to the extent that they could no longer be used. And then Tay refused to wear her contact lens and refused to spend money on new spectacles.  So you get a very grouchy and foul-mood Tay, knocking into things here and there, taking 8 hours […]


24 Hours Cycling Challenge Fundraiser – becoming the person we want to be

We had grand ideas for the 24 Hours Cycling Challenge Fundraiser. We wanted to challenge our physical limits – If we can cycle for 24 hours, we can do anything. We can cycle around the world. We wanted to create awareness – If we stream the entire process “live”, people would be drawn in to […]


Building Confidence from Fitness, First

During our first meeting with Sarah, she gave us our Fitness First packages in return for our commitment to “train as hard as we could”. She wasn’t the only person who knew that we needed training. We were very, very, acutely, aware that we needed help. We just didn’t know how much help, and how […]


Adopt a Minute of our 24Hr Cycling Challenge Fundraiser

We’ve sold our belongings to “burn our bridges” and made sure there was no turning back for us… We’ve organised a “Bon Voyage Fundraiser Dinner” to bid our dear ones and supporters a proper farewell… People have come “just to pass us some money” and we are ever so grateful. Our current funds raised in […]


Collecting our bicycles – The Joy, The Worry, The Challenge

Finally! We collected our bicycles from Rodalink. As you can see, happiness was jumping off our faces. It was like Eddy the Santa Claus came down the chimney and left us both a present. And then we became two little girls tearing away at the packaging from their new toys. We were overjoyed and we […]


19th Mar: You’re invited to our Bon Voyage Fundraiser Dinner – come send your (fare)well wishes!

Note: Dinner is now on 19th March (Friday) because most of our dear ones cannot make it on the 12th, and this would also give us more time to sell tickets. So help us out and spread the word! We didn’t wanna call this a farewell party because it’s not goodbye, it’s not the end. […]

a project DESPITE Without A Cent

“No Money” is one of the most common reasons people give for not chasing/living their dreams. We wanted to live an example to show people otherwise. View the introduction video about our debate over “Money”.
