It has seriously been a while since I came back from Madrid and in 3 weeks time, I will be leaving to Barcelona.
I can’t help but to feel even more empowered to do more in my life. Speaking of which, this is the picture of Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela where the tomb of St. James is being laid.
When I reached at the square in front of the Cathedral, I just can’t stop being in awe of such beauty.
The pilgrimage and the World Youth Day 2011 was a refreshing trip. I wanna write more about it. Let me find time to digest most of it first.
Came back and yes, like I said, I am empowered to do more. Total Holiday is doing well and we are looking for expansion.
Furthermore, additional to my company’s further expansion, I got hired by Groupon Malaysia as Head of Travel Partnership, where I will be working on getting more travel deals to be featured here in Malaysia. Exciting company to work in and I’ve been learning a lot and also shared a lot of my experience as well.
Over the weekend, I visited a dog shelter run by Paws Mission. (Click to read their blog)
Was asked by Crystal if I would like to join her as they need volunteer, hence I was there. The dogs there are quite friendly except for a few “do not go near them” dogs. They will of course bark at any new strangers, I am sure they will know us better in time to come.
It is an independent run dog shelter. They have more than 180 dogs in their compound. But the condition of their compound are beginning to cramp up as they are sheltering more dogs now as compared to last year. Look at the condition of this shelter compound below.
It was more than visit as we helped with the cleaning of the place and wash their dishes (after the dog’s lunch) and finally training the dogs. I’ve got a dog of my own but I’ve never learnt so much about communicating with a dog and training them to be your companion. Just like how TJ the trainer puts it, “You need to treat them like how you would treat your girlfriend.”
Well said… I will be there again coming Saturday on 24th September.
Anyways, that’s it for today, need to get some work done up. Have a great week ahead!
I personally think that my pilgrimage did not end at Santiago de Compostela. It has just only begun…
He is just a simple person who comes from a moderate family, living in the country of Malaysia for more than 2 decades now.
He believes in POWER. Power with the combination of Intellect, Friends, Families and Money.
