Hello. It looks like you have found the little corner of the web where I share my travel stories and adventures. I am Red, a thirty something living in Singapore. I am what you would call a travel fan. Fanatic. I want to see everything, experience everything. There is so much to see and do, and nothing gives me greater satisfaction.

The Furious Panda is my repository of my personal travel tales. It has been up since 2005 when I first started documenting my solo trip to Pai and Chiang Mai. The site has since grown, crashed and returned in 2017. In between I have set on many travels, some alone and some with friends, including two sojourns of 4 months and 1.5 years. Right now family and life means I have cut down on updating this blog, but I still do many flash travelling trips. Flash travelling is the term I use for people with too little time. Blitz there and back over the long weekends, that kind of thing.

What’s my travel philosophy? – As cliche as it is, mine is simple. Travel in pursuit of knowledge. Be there, soak in the atmosphere, enjoy the experience, and travel with an open mind. Seeking knowledge is essential, and what better way than traveling. The experience makes for a better human being, and the best thing about it is that it stays with you for life.

So that’s the serious bit. I’m also a bit of a klutz, and make silly decisions when travelling, though I’ve learnt from my mistakes over time. You can find the stories of my misadventures here on the site. They are often the most fun and interesting blogposts. In the meantime. comments are welcome. You can reach me at:
