The landscape industry (private sector) in 10-20 years time.

I am very worried.

Many landscape companies are family run organization. The succession plan usually is usually passed to the descendants or the trusted members within the family. If there is none of the children willingly or able to take over the business, there will be a trend that many would end up being selling the company to overseas developing giant country corporation.

There will not be many local owned landscape companies in 10-20 years down the road.

The phone call that I received yesterday triggered this thought. My friend’s health is not getting any better; he has no descendants; he has been always relying on foreign labour/worker/manager to run the company. Now he wants to sell his landscape company.

We are facing a manpower succession that is in competition with the public sector.

Is this a trend of a developed country?

Memories of our trip. Proud of fellow bikers.

24th December 2008,

we reached the most Southern city of America Continent. It gave us much memories and the first to come in our mind during that time was the friends we made and had great time there.

Today, 24th January 2017, I received a message on facebook from Surinder Pal Singh, fellow biker from Singapore that went traveling with a few friends from Singapore on their own motorbike from Columbia and to Ushuaia, and I think also to many other places. He found something that I had forgotten about and maybe, if under the Singapore Law, I might get some canning.

 Behind that banner, he found our signature. Are you able to spot it?

Sam and I are proud of them and few other Singaporean Bikers that set off on trips that they ever dream about; achieving their fire in the heart for so many years. Good job!
