BK Lim — The Ride of a Lifetime

BK Lim — The Ride of a Lifetime

BK Lim -- The Ride of a Lifetime 

Motorbike salesman BK Lim is a man I've been chasing for a long, long time, after I first heard of his monster trip from Downing Street in Penang, Malaysia, to 10, Downing Street St in London, England, where the British Prime Minister goes to work! 

Spanning 25 countries, 38,000 km and completed over four months, the journey was even more incredible because it was completed on Honda 125cc motorcycles by retirees and grandfathers, all of them from Penang, in Malaysia. 

The youngest, Lee Hang Chung, was 53 at the time, while the eldest, Frankie Cheah, was 69.

BK Lim himself was 62 when he completed the journey. 

Listen to his story of the trip here and his next journey, from Anchorage in Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego, in Argentina, at the southernmost tip of South America.

Dr Teo Soo-Hwang of Cancer Research Malaysia - Asia’s Cancer Killer 

This is personal to me. When my (non-smoker) sister Fay Khoo died of lung cancer in 2017 it was both heartbreaking and mysterious. 

How could an otherwise and non-smoking person be diagnosed and dead in 20 days? 

This is one of the things I asked Dr Teo Soo-Hwang of Cancer Research Malaysia. 

As told to Khoo Hsu Chuang.
