This was another speech I gave at my Toastmasters Club. It is one of the many speeches I made that were based on my experience with Pangaea. I guess when trying to find something in my life that is worthy enough to make the audience sit in silence for seven minutes, the Pangaea experience often […]

Born to Run

“Let us live so that when we come to die, even the undertaker will be sorry” Mark Twain Born to Run is a book by Christopher McDougall which I quite enjoyed. His style of writing is like a wave, building up to many climaxes over the course of the three hundred pages. This is gripping […]

“Recruit J Y Chua! The Company Sergeant Major wants to see you! Its about your vocation in the military; you have been selected for something.” This was news indeed. In the past month or so in Basic Military Training, I had reluctantly come to terms with the regimentation of a soldier. Our unique identities, in […]

Advocate against animal abuse

April 1, 2012 2 Comments

I would like to advocate for the protection of animals against the abuse which they undergo while they are factory-produced for our consumption. How is this relevant to the YEP and the environment? The way we treat the environment, the way we destroy it, is driven by the same mentality that manifests in how we treat animals, the attitude […]

Led by Nicolette, the Singapore YEPers recently had a beach cleanup! This was inspired by Mike Horn’s visit to Singapore earlier in the year. We had a sleepover on the Pangaea, during which Mike brought us on a speedboat to the nearby Southern Islands of Singapore, Pulau Tekukor. It was very dirty, and we found lots of plastic bags and bottles, […]
