Devadoss,
Thanks so much for helping us zealously & industriously without complain. Your dedication to your works is a excellent example to volunteers & helpers who want to assist those hosts who need help
in their project or managing a guesthouse/ homestay/ hostel.
As long as we're still alive & able, we want you to stay with us & share our
spiritual food with you, but of course we include the physical foods.
vegan or vegetarian foods not to forget.......don't forget our Almighty God
that we're discussing & you're most welcome to share with us.
Read the bible regularly, but with meditation. Remeber, " The Three H'S"
in our conversation.........
Please take care & may God almighty direct you to your destination of "Paradise Earth!"

Warmest regards,
Sam & Jane.

Traveling and helping these kind individuals, who carefully plan every step to support their family and business was a first for me. The encounter was heartwarming. An extended family that is distant from mine. You all are so much appreciated. Please take care of Pandan and May May (They are their beloved cats). I will definitely come back soon 😊

My experience did not meet my expectations. The daily distance to the workplace using the hosts' van, coupled with the lack of clarity about responsibilities, made the experience more challenging. There were difficulties in communication and in the refreshments provided, generating discomfort. I suggest improvements in the organisation and definition of roles. The distance and lack of clarity were significant. Difficulties in communication and refunds affected my experience. I suggest aligning expectations and logistics for future volunteers.

Owners of the guesthouse treated me well. It was exactly as agreed. Guesthouse very comfortable with the best breakfast, feels like home. They were flexible with my hours and tried to help me when I needed to go explore. It wasn't too much work. Place in a good location, always full with international tourists so big opportunities to meet people. I can recommend it.

Hello Aigul,
How're you, lady Aigul? Thanks for helping us, especially in looking after our Reception area. Up to now, guests still checking in to our guesthouse & we need to make sure all guests will be taken care of..........
We wish you'd extend your help/stay with us but for now, we're still hoping Volunteers will help us these coming days. We wish the best of adventure to the remaining Asia countries you're visiting & may your dream comes true.
Warmest regards & Best Wishes,
Sam & Jane, Panda & Gabby.
