Kenwei Chong had an once-in-a-lifetime adventure he wants everyone to experience.

Wanting to take a break, Mr. Chong flew from his job as a financial manager to the other side of the world in 1996. His four-month trip to Southeast Asia has become a 15-month long adventure.

Listen to Kenwei Chong as he talks about his travel quests in India, Vietnam, Thailand and other parts of the orient where he acquired his inspiration for his new passion, food.

Now the managing partner of E&O Trading Co.’s first branch in Hawaii, Mr. Chong has come a long way from being a financial analyst and owner of Box To Go and FileMinders, and he has his travel experience to thank for.

He also shares with us the GIFT Foundation of Hawaii’s role in supporting charitable organizations directed towards youth education and wellness initiatives.
