600km Walking Pilgrimage through Spain

Written by Denise Chng Lisan & published on September 2 2008

From the moment I discovered an ancient pilgrimage path in Spain in June last year, the attraction of walking hundreds of kilometres towards an assured destination grew on me daily. My eagerness to go on a month-long journey on foot across the steep slopes, lush valleys and forests of the Pyrenees, and through countless small towns and villages, was part of a subconscious quest to find depth and meaning in my life. At the age of 33, I was approaching – prematurely, perhaps – what seemed to be a mid-life crisis.

Letter from Quebec: Preserving Heritage

Written by Denise Chng Lisan & published on November 8 2008

'TRAVEL is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living,' wrote Miriam Beard. Life in Quebec is now my teacher, pointing out my knowledge gaps and honing my ideas of living - be it language, culture, life-skills, or the environment.

Brand Finance Forum in London

Posted by Denise CHNG Lisan On Friday, September 07, 2007
Every year I head to London to meet my international colleagues from Brand Finance, and to attend the Brand Finance Forum where many international speakers would come and speak on special topics. (

This year, it was once again held at the London Stock Exchange. And it was the best organized ever. My colleagues are wonderful in pulling off a world class conference. I learnt lots from it and met people from all over the world.

This is also the first year where 75% of our Singapore team are in London together. Three of us!

That's Unni-ji below, who just got married. His wife Anna is a spunky Hungarian girl and she is lovely. I'm glad we caught up in London. Anna brought me a Hungarian pastry before we parted, all the way from Hungary to London! What a special gift. =)

Thanks to everyone at BF that I'm able to take this sabbatical and make this trip. Thank you thank you thank you!
