About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Serenity now!

ABOUT ME

A sarcastic jokester who is too serious most of the time...

PHILOSOPHY

Passion holds everything together.

"He who seeks truth shall find beauty.
He who seeks beauty shall find vanity.
He who seeks order shall find gratification.
He who seeks gratification shall be disappointed.
He who considers himself the servant of his fellow beings shall find the joy of self expression.
He who seeks self expression shall fall into the pit of arrogance.
Arrogance is incompatible with nature.
Through nature, the nature of the universe, and the nature of man, we shall seek truth.
If we seek truth, we shall find beauty."
- Safdie

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Meeting people and sharing our views on little things in life. I wish to see the whole world but it's not possible as I like to take my time to feel the places, the people, and the cultures. Through other CSers, I will be that much closer to my wish. The couch is just a perk in this process...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted, surfed, and participated in CS events.

Surfing...
I have only done it once so far at Anthony's in Zurich. Either everyone in Zurich is that wonderful or I just simply lucked out. It was my first time ever so I did not know what to expect. What are the etiquettes?? I brought some touristy "I heart NY shot glasses" for Anthony as a thank you gift. He filled them up right away with alcohol and we were doing shots with his friend two minutes after I met him. It was awesome!

Interests

Love live musical performances...

Discover things that make me go ahhhhh.....
