About Me

I strongly believe in Law of Attraction and my past experiences have proven it to me. I've started my web-blog recently at www.akwanders.com for thoughts and lessons sharing.

I am:
[C]urious about the world
[Y]earning for freedom

Warning!!! I'm a positive-energy sucker :) “I'm a common girl with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monument dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I'm gonna live a life full of adventures with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough”.

Born and bred in a Confucian-based education, in a broader concept - Eastern culture, and lately exposed to a diversity of cultures, I have struggled to define my existence in life and still yet to find the answer. However, those who come and go in my life, I strongly believe, are pieces of the complete puzzle of my being.

I am easily excited by nature and culture, a beach person loves chasing sunrise/sunset anywhere I set foot in. I'm addicted to taking on challenges and exceeding my self limits to see how far I can go. Although I love travelling and socializing, sometimes I prefer being alone to ponder on how to love myself more. When you see me not talking a lot that means I'm getting lost in thoughts, not that I feel bored or sad.

The most important thing for me to easily befriend is to respect each other's freedom and points of view. I like to get to know a person from their imperfect side rather than perfect side. To me, there is nothing more trusting and real nor more beautiful than a person being unapologetically herself, comfortable in her perfect imperfection. We become friends because we want to be ourselves, to share our stories and experiences in life ^_^.

To survive in life, your will to win must be bigger than your fear to lose.
Every single human being is a gem and needs to be treated fairly.
Happiness in my heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the way how people are brought together randomly and make great impact on each other thru CS.
CS is where I can find the most like-minded people among 7 billion people on Earth
CS has brought me many precious opportunities to step out of my comfort zone and it has literally exposed me to the world in every way.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm pretty easy-going when it comes to music, movies and books, almost everything can feed my soul :)). I've found Jack Johnson quite soulful to me, their songs can put me at ease to focus, or relieve my stress to get back on track.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmm maybe living my life as the way it is, not as what is being defined by the majority; and always stand by the existence of humanity in individuals regardless.
