Stretched to the Max!

Hi guys! Apologies to all of you as I have not been updating my blog. Workload has been absolutely crazy as I am exploring new projects and I have been tied down by all the operational issues. It seems I am the bottleneck behind the growth of the organization. I am always doing new things as my people have issues rationalizing and keeping up. I am so blessed to have good people behind me but as I go into all my new projects, even good folks have problems.

It is very extremely difficult finding good people. I really need a good hotel GM right now to assist me in putting all the details behind our hotel offering. It is a new and exciting concept and I am looking forward to propagating this concept throughout Asia. I hope to have al least 5 hotels under our wings by 2018 after our first opening in 2012. I know 1 property per year is hectic but I would quite enjoy the challenge.

I give thanks for all the opportunities that I have been given and it is important to realize the talents God has given you. More often than not, many of us complain that we have no opportunities but we have to reflect and ponder if we have used the potential we have been given in the first place. Quite a few of you have emailed me to ask for JV opportunities. I apologise as I have been busy but will think about getting more people in our management team over this Christmas break.

Time really flies and its gonna be a brand new year. I am hoping for a good break but when I look at my travel itinerary, I scratch my head, haha! I guess that’s life.

Till the next entry, take care and God Bless!

Your Friend,
Andy Ong
