We first retired from our work in Australia in 2005, before going cruising. For five years we stayed gainfully unemployed, before happenstance offered up a variety of interesting projects and challenges over the intervening years.
Since then we've been involved in making digital HD videos of beautiful villas in Bali and Thailand, project management at a zip-line ride and adventure park on Sentosa Island and consulting for a Singapore company, building an AV design team in Singapore and India. These projects allowed us to experience the south Asia area in depth, and between the assignments we managed to continue our cruising life style.

When the Fun Stops... Retire
Ley sends me off to work each morning with a consistent and clear message - have fun ! We both know that when the fun stops we will move on, returning to our cruising home.
Retirement day now is now looming again. On August 31 (in just one week), we'll be off again. Yes, we are on a count down, there is water at the end of the tunnel and we are looking forward to sailing on it very soon.
Crystal Blues should depart Singapore in early October, calling in at Penang for a few weeks before hauling out of the water at Rebak in Langkawi (Malaysia) for some much needed under water anti-fouling paint. By January we'll be back to our old haunts around Phuket in Thailand.
