About Me

A learning traveller who spends his leisure with cooking, and reading random stuffs in the internet. A free thinker who is passionate with discourses of plethora of social issues, and always excited with any opportunity for cross-cultural understanding.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

At this point of my life, I am so eager to travel to new places. I usually travel abroad for academic purposes and have my freedom very much restricted. However, now I promise to myself I have to have real travelling; arrange my itinerary by myself, do whatever I want, go wherever I feel I need to, and enjoy myself.
I join couchsurfing because I believe to live up to the perks of travelling; I need to meet new friends that can help me being introduced to the local culture,and while at it, give me some time and place to arrange my plans during my stay in the city.
In return, if you come to my city I will be glad to meet up for coffee and help you with your stay as I could!


A foodie and also a homecook. I never have any professional training on cooking but I still enjoy doing it anyway, whenever possible.

Travelling to new places for breaking the stereotypes and being fascinated with humanity all around the world is my aspiration in life.
I plan for going to middle eastern countries (Iran, Iraq, Lebanon or Jordania) maybe in 2 or 3 years later. Wish me luck in finding the right timing (and the fund, too) :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to pretty much anything. However,soul and blues tracks my mom used to play at home when I was younger were the first tunes I fancy, and are still my thing now as well. I am also a fan of music of Florence+The Machine, Sigur Ros, and Coldplay.

I am a Potterhead! I am from the House of Hufflepuff.

I love my books (Gender, Religion, Classic fictions etc), but Manga is life! LoL
You can see what I got on my bookshelves in goodreads (ID : afdhalabdillah27 )

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Without an advanced planning, I made a last minute decision to travel to Kashmir from India, stayed a night at a houseboat in Srinagar, and continued to Gulmarg, western Himalaya as a solo backpacker. I rode the cable car and went up to the second phase of gondola to reach the snowy mountain top, it was the most beautiful scenery ever and I was proud of me able to pull this solo trip off successfully, I literally have the best solitary moment, sometimes it is good to be alone to find peace, I think;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I will teach you everything about different kinds of Indonesian food, from why you should try it, where you can find it, and how to make it at your own home.

I want to learn your own tips about travelling in your country, from the basic local phrases to survive, to how to use transportation system. I am definitely curious with your favorite food as well:)

I'll be glad to share as many things as I could. Let me know what can I share for you:)

What I Can Share with Hosts

My books, snacks, and definitely friendship!
