About Me

We start off as strangers, but we will end off as friends!

Hello and welcome!

I’m Serene Goh, a Year 3 Psychology student from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore who is really interested in knowing more about Asian Elephants!

You might be wondering why not Sumatra tigers or any other animals but Asian elephants? Reason being, 2 years ago, I read about how elephants in Thailand were ill-treated so as that they could be obedient during elephant trekking. To be honest, I did not know that they were ill-treated to that extent! I was flabbergasted!!!

Recently, when I visited Krabi, I was searching on activities and I found out that they provided elephant trekking. Out of curiosity, I searched for various elephant trekking companies and found one that explained how they treated elephants fairly and how the money that tourists paid would go into supporting elephants’ welfare. Eventually, I chose that company and went elephant trekking in Krabi!

It was indeed a moral dilemma… I wanted to enjoy the trek as much as possible since I already paid for it but part of me aches for the elephants and I actually felt bad sitting on them! Ever since then, I swear never to ride on elephants again!

I’m not sure about you, but these are just some of my thoughts and the rationale behind my blog! I do hope you gain some insights from this blog! 🙂
