We originally met Daniel Tan Cheng Leng at the airport in Vientiane, while waiting for our next flight out. He came to see us there and buy us a quick lunch and so we would get to know each other a little bit better. During our last multi-village excursion, he flew out to join us. Daniel is originally from Malaysia, now living in Vientiane with his wife and volunteers with a charity in Vientiane for dog and cats with special needs and seniors.
He has a special place in his heart for children too, providing children with school supplies whenever he has spare cash, as evidenced by the pictures below.
