About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live my life

ABOUT ME

I love to smile at people when i walk around and i love to laugh at myself when i do something stupid. I follow my heart all the time and I enjoy my life as much as i can. I am friendly, easy-going and very open-minded. I find myself very talkative over a wide range of topics and also a good listener when being engaged in an interesting conversation. I eat to live and I live to travel. Wherever i go, I try my best to live like a local, talk to locals and understand how and why they think in the way they do. I don't regard myself as a traveler when traveling. I don't put myself as an outsider when in a foreign country. I regard everywhere i go as my home for the time being. Home is where heart belongs and my heart belongs to wherever i go. Always a child in the heart. Believe that simplicity and innocence are natural beauty.

PHILOSOPHY

Who you want to be is not who you are right now
What wisdom you learnt through books is not yours yet.
Thus action is the most important thing
What do you defines who you are

Always dare to do new things to make mistakes and to change myself
Live life and love everyone and everything with full heart and brain
See and understand the world though the eyes of a happy and curious child

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I came across this website when i was reading some travel blog and felt clicked at the first CS meet-up.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed in Sri Lanka and the Philippines. Had a great time with my hosts and the local CSers. I also went to Singapore CS weekly meetups and events and made friends with lots of interesting people. CS has become a very important part of my life and I really enjoy the time i spent with CSers.

Talking to people spontaneously and hopefully carry out some interesting talks
Trying to understand people as much as possible and expand my acceptance of difference as much as possible

Music, Movies, and Books

I like to watch movies which helps me think. sometimes I even watch the same movie again and again. I like The Dark Knight,The Shutter Island,The Fight Club,One Day,Revolutionary Road. I love the comedy Friends. I love singing and dancing and I also enjoy reading a lot.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

For me, everyday is amazing. Getting up from my bed seeing the sunshine outside my window. going to work and listening to the bird singing in the tree. These are all amazing things to me. If i have to choose the most amazing thing to tell you, then it has to be my whole life since i was born. Everything has been amazing to me. Yes I am just that optimistic.
