  1. I’m savouring the book slowly. I’ve covered 45 days of your hike. Reading about you forging on despite the challenging terrain and conditions never cease to amaze me.

  3. Good day Amy

    Happened to read about your experience from the May issue SHAPE magazine last nite.

    There may be a sunrise-sunset hiking in Singapore coming future as stated on the magazine.
    I am interested to participate.
    Shall there is such event, p/s keep me update at the email address given above.

    You had amazed me for the challenge you’ve taken which last around 3 months.
    I wonder if I have the chance to do so…

    Keep it up.
