    What a lovely and comfortable place to stay! I felt the deep relaxation of HEPA immediately when I arrived and I’m just sorry I couldn’t stay longer.
    HEPA is a beautiful environment with marvellous activities made more beautiful by the kindness and hospitality of the people.
    It was a privilege to hear the stories of the people and what HEPA has achieved.
    A special thanks to Tan who is a fabulous chef! I will try to remember some of the excellent cooking tips when I go home.
