About Me

I always like to meet new people from various places and background, and I also likes to explore new places (I was brought up in different places, so it's also like an adventure) which needless to say leads me to be very keen to know more about the various culture, language and tradition of this world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really find it interesting (in a good term) about the diversity and multiple rapprochement that exists from people around the globe. It is my pleasure to travel and to know more about a country and cultures from the people themselves, not just merely by seeing Wikipedia or reading news .


Cooking! I love to share and improve on recipes from every place of the world. From Meatloaf to Bigos to Bobotie to Gulai, I would always endeavour for some new stuff.

Language and Culture. I was brought up in a multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-faith family (not multi-mogul unfortunately :p) and lived there and there as well! I would always love to meet people from a country that I never meet before.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Summer Hitchhiking (2015) through Eastern Europe and the Balkan!

Teach, Learn, Share

It is definitely my pleasure to share anything about my country, or any other things that I probably knows to my fellow Couchsurfers. I woud like to learn (... the list is long, but I would appreciate what my fellow Couchsurfers would like to share, sans disgusting and dangerous stuff, and completely no-brainer and bigoted speech from both sides of the spectrum, of course ;) )

|- How to cook some special fusion hangover curing dish
|- How to make a fatty Cheese-chocolate layered-caramel toast :D
|- How to randomly steer a serious or sad conversation into a goofball

Notice the trend in there ;)?

What I Can Share with Hosts

My eccentrical thought and my attempt at the kitchen, I think ;)
