Swee Chiow Summits Everest for a second time!
Yes, they summited at 5.45 am this morning. Together with Khoo
Swee Chiow was Vincent Loh, Malaysian CEO at age of 51 together with 5 other
Sherpas. We have not gotten their names at this point. Will let you know once
I have them.
He has been called Singapore's very first
professional adventurer. However, he is happier to simply let people know that
he is merely chasing his dreams. One of his powerful messages is "If I can
climb Mt Everest, so can you."
Earlier: Birthday & Anniversary
I got up feeling slightly
better. The medicine is effective. But the cough hasn't gone away
I called Wee Leng to wish
her happy birthday. Today is also our wedding anniversary. She is concerned
about my health. I told her I will recover soon.
She is 38 now and God has
been very kind to grant us a 2nd child, a girl this time. She is due in mid
June. We haven't decided her name yet. I think about it every now and then
when I am climbing, just like when I was cycling to Beijing, the inspiration
for Sheng Feng's name came to me while riding.
Wee Leng may decide to
climb Everest one day. When that happens, I look forward to staying at home
to look after the kids. That will very cool for both of us. But I think the
separation from the kids will be very hard for her. It's already hard for
Good to hear Sheng Feng's
voice too. My eyes welled up with tears when he said 'I miss you daddy'.
This is my 1st trip that he said it. He is growing up fast.
