Join Couchsurfing to see Stoki’s full profile.
I love to hang out with friends. For me, friends are my main source of energy. That’s why I’d like to have as many friends from around the world!
I'm quite spontaneous and outspoken. Enjoy talking and sharing ideas. A bit laid-back and relaxed type of guy.
My philosophy is: "embrace each morning as your last, so you may die in the evening free of regret"
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I knew about this site from a friend of mine. At first, I just thought of this site as a way to cut accommodation costs while traveling. But then, as I traveled more, I realized that all the books I read, all the websites I browse, and all the stories I listen to can't be compared to the information I got from the locals. As they say: "local knows best!"
It changed my mindset. I no longer think of Couchsurfing as a method of minimizing my traveling budget (although it still is), but now I see it as a way to immerse yourself in the local culture, to get new inspirations from having conversations with people you meet while you do Couchsurfing, and of course to have friends from all around the world.
Traveling. Culture. Language. Food.
Trying new things.
Meeting new people.
Exploring new places.
- sign language

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
1. I went skinny-dipping in the Maldives.
2. I rode on a small electric bike together with 2 other friends in Suzhou and arrived in one piece.
3. Bathed and slept in a jjimjilbang in Seoul.
4. Lived for a year in a rural area in Aceh province in Indonesia to teach in an elementary school.
5. Learned how to sign to be able to speak with Deaf communities in Indonesia.
and that's 5 cuz I'm a rebel!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you Bahasa Indonesia and Indonesian culture. I can also cook Indonesian food (if we can find the ingredients of course haha).
What I Can Share with Hosts
Obviously, I can share with you a lot about Indonesia and its rich culture. I can also share about our traveling and Couchsurfing experiences.
Oh if you want to request a place to say, be sure to call me ‘Stoki’. That’s my nickname. If you call me ‘Ananta’ or just ‘Hey’, I’d know that you hadn’t gone through my profile and that’s the worst kind of Couchsurfer lol (I will instantly decline your request).
