*Third Visit to Korea*
Frankly saying, the third time for Xinwen visiting Korea but different area, (previously: Suwon city and Jeonju). Thus, admin staffs are very well-known to Xinwen.
Xinwen, Jayden Sia and Sharen had finally set their journey off from Malaysia to Korea on the 6th of November 11.45pm. The flight took roughly 6 hours and 10 minutes. Destination is Goyang City of Korea, and would be staying in Hotel Jijihyang.
Scheduled tournament will be starting on Sunday 9th of November; the routine of sightseeing will be the Imjinsak – Demilitarize Zone (The 3rd Tunnel, Mt.Dora Observation Platform), Heyri Village (Art Gallery) and Haengjusaneong Fortress.
This town is full of mysteries, whole day roaming with the gangs and despite finding the weather is so much chilling, the architecture around is incredibly designed by different architects. The term “architecture” is used because the building has served function, features in design well to be called so.

*Activities relate to Go*
As usual, in every international tournament the working staff will be waiting upon the arrival of all representatives. Name Tag, Souvenirs, Brochures, Local map, etc.

Xinwen had also gotten the chance to meet Kazu-san (Japan representative), Izeki-san (Philippines Official), Mr. Kim Seong June, and lastly Ngoc Cuong Nguyen aka. KONG (Luxemburg representative).
*Turning Point of Xinwen’s Go life*
Something that Xinwen has never mentioned, sincerely feel apologitic. 1 year ago, it was Kong who gave the direction and guidances to Xinwen to make an approach to hit the International Go Federation by announcing the existency of Go in Brunei through via e-mail to Yuki Shigeno (General Secretary of IGF).
Which was that time, Igo Society (Brunei) had begun to recognized as a legal activities to IGF and AGF despite it is an unofficial neither it had register.
