I’m a big believer in bucket-lists. I remember I made a list on the eve of the year 2000 and when I turn back and look at the list, it has really defined me as a person. It has given me the right clarity and focus in pushing forward.
I have been meaning to do a retreat focused on chalking out things that we truly want to pursue in our lives. Thus was born The Bucket-List Bootcamp. More info at http://Kiruba.com/bucketlist
While its easy for us to write down the list ourselves, its far more difficult to follow up and turn them into reality. Just like how training for a marathon as a group makes it easy, gunning for our goals makes it possible with the right team. The goal of the bootcamp is to invite 15 very motivated individuals with lots of hunger to pursue their passion together and help form a self-supporting group. Each of us will push others to achieve our goals.
The event takes place at my 9 acre farm, a nice, quiet, idyllic place to relax and plan our life. More about the place at http://Kiruba.com/farmstay
The event takes place on September 14 & 15, 2013. We are currently inviting application to select the best 15 people. If you are interested, I encourage to apply at http://Kiruba.com/bucketlist/bootcamp. Click on the ‘Apply’ button. Once selected, each participant makes a door donation of Rs.3000 which will be spent towards workshop materials, resource persons, fresh organic farm fresh meals, accommodation, local travel and excursion to Gingee Fort. There’s option to make the payment in installments if you need flexibility in payment.
Do you know a person who can benefit from this? Please do share the word around. Thank you in advance.
Meeting with Dato’ Sri Dr.Ng Yen Yen, the Malaysian Tourism Minister at the International Tourism Bloggers Conference in KL. She is quite a firebrand and is credited with making Malaysia the 9th most visited country in the World. She is the first Malaysian Chinese Woman to hold a cabinet position.

Impressive attendance at the Malaysia Social Media Conference. I’ve noticed that the Malaysian audience are attentive but not participative. I’m hoping to shake them up a little when I get up on stage this afternoon.
