As an active member of industry associations such as SACEOS and PCMA, WeeMin Ong travels frequently throughout Asia-Pacific and abroad, taking up to 12 long-haul business trips each year. As a committed road warrior, Ong says he enjoys exploring new cities and can easily adapt to a new locale.
“In this globalised world we now live in, our lives and our work transcend traditional borders,” he said. “It’s all about being at home in any city. Wherever I go, I love to eat what the locals eat. Food is a wonderful to experience a new culture and a new city.”
But getting to those new far-off cities isn’t always easy. “Missing my flight can be an issue as I usually have back-to-back trips and flight connections to meet clients in different cities,” Ong said. “So a missed connection can have a nasty snowball effect.”
