Hi, My name is Wai Leng. Family name is LOW. Being a Singaporean of Chinese descent, my family name normally comes first, before my given name of Wai Leng. I am a retired Accountant and is hoping to travel extensively in Australia now that I have more time on my hands. I love travelling and meeting people.
My last stay in Australia was in year 2000 in Sydney when I was doing my MBA program with Macquarie University. I was also an Olympic volunteer with the Sydney 2000 Olympic games. That was an awesome experience. Now that I am retired from accounting work, I volunteer at a not for profit organic farm in Singapore at least once a week, learning about farming in general. Would like to learn more about how organic farming is practiced in the various states of Australia, and at the same time, travelling and visiting the different states of Australia, meeting different peoples given the huge country that Australia is.
The timing is also appropriate now that the word is coming out of COVID19 and country borders should be opening up soon. I am looking forward to 2022 to visiting Australia and also to the AO Open in Melbourne in Jan 2022.
I have also been vaccinated with 2 doses of Moderna COVID19 vaccine (mRNA-1273) and a 3rd booster with Pfizer-Biontech COVID19 vaccine.
Why I joined WWOOF
I join WWOOF is it will enable me to learn more about organic farming in Australia. I volunteer in a Not For Profit farm in Singapore at least once a week, now that I have retired from my regular job as an Accountant. I also like to travel and meet people and the WWOOF experience will give me this opportunity.
