The High-Flying Orang Asli of Pertak
Shannon Lim and Faisal Jeber manage a hot air balloon company called SkyEvents. As it happens, Shannon was keen to attend a Power of Releasing workshop conducted by my buddies Heiko and Selina Niedermeyer at a river resort near Pertak Village and they came to an agreement wherein Shannon would pay for the workshop by arranging a free balloon ride for all the workshop participants as well as any Orang Asli keen to experience high altitudes. So on the last day of the workshop, Faisal and gang arrived with a hot air balloon and set it up in the soccer field at the Orang Asli village of Pertak....
A thousand-and-one thanks to balloon event sponsors Heiko and Selina for offering the balloon ride to Kampong Pertak residents and for their generosity and thoughtfulness.
