A week before my birthday, Val asked me, “What present do you want for your birthday?” I thought for a while and whispered back, “Can I have anything I want?” Val’s head nodded an affirmative nod. I took a deep breadth and said, “I want to do the Santa Maria Volcano Full Moon Hike.” I […]
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 […]
Cyanobacteria. The blue-green algae choking up Lake Atitlan due to pollution from the people living around the lake. This was the sight that greeted us throughout our 15 minute boat-ride across the lake from Panajachel to Santa Cruz de la Laguna, where our new host, IslaVerde awaits. And it perfectly reflected our state of being […]
We’d just spent the last couple of days rolling in bed, throwing up any food or liquid that goes into our bodies, basically, suffering from some unknown food poisoning or stomach virus. While everyone else was out partying counting down to the wonderful 2011 ahead, we laid next to each other and grimaced, “Why is […]

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 […]
A “scab” is the crust formed over a wound during healing. When we decided to document every step of our journey in this project, starting from hometown Singapore, we made a decision to “put ourselves out there”, even when it comes to presenting our vulnerable selves – our fears. We said that Project Singapore was […]
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 […]
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 […]

We have a confession to make. Before this journey, Val did NOT know how to cycle. In fact, she’s terrified of the bicycle. Before this journey, Tay has NEVER been in front of the camera. In fact, she’s horrified to be on-screen. View the video about the journey that began back at home in Singapore – the journey to overcome our innermost fears.
