Exceptional people: Ex-teacher plans trip across four continents and 50 countries on skateboard
It usually takes four hours to get from Singapore to Hong Kong. Former teacher Adrian Oh, however, took four months.
That is because he swopped an airplane for a skateboard, travelling at a leisurely pace through Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and China on his way. He will also travel through countries such as the Netherlands - where he is, currently - Belgium, France, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Turkey and Iran.
It is little more than a warm-up for the special needs educator, who plans to skateboard 30,000km across four continents and at least 50 countries. His trip will take him two years.
