Join Couchsurfing to see Advin’s full profile.
I'm Advin, a Malaysian who is living in Perth, Australia since March 2013!
I graduated from Uni a few years ago and I work in the weekdays. - which means I have plenty of time to travel and socialize with you on the weekend!
I love to learn and try new things especially taste new cuisine and the new cocktail.
I do speak Malay, Mandarin, and English. If you are a party animal we could go to the party but if you are more mature we could make our own cocktail and share some stories together!
Lately, I been living alone. I am in my early 30's and generally pretty easy-going but I like to keep our place pretty neat. I do speak English and I'll consider hosting anyone for up to a week, as long as you respect my property and space eg if you smoke, you do it outside...and definitely no drugs! I've only got one small bed so I can only host one or two people at a time, or maybe a couple (if you're close!). I do 7- 3 work thing so I am happy to give you plenty of advice but you will have to find your own way around, except of course after work and during weekends when I'll usually be happy to give you a tour, or head to the pub!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
When travelling, to learn local life story while saving some money when travelling. When hosting, I'm here because I need to return the favour and hope that my hospitality could help some couch surfers and make some new friendship.
I'm interested in Football in general or in Australia they called Soccer. My favourite soccer/football team is Liverpool F.C.
I do like reading the manga, search and reading on the internet, watch all kind of movies except documentary movies and listen most of the different kinds of music.
I'll go to the cinema once a week with my friends. I'm interested in playing PlayStation games and the only computer game I'm playing all the time is Football manager series.
I like to explore some new hidden place as well in my free time to know more about Perth.
