About Me


Finding my calling in the humanitarian field...and hugging every cat in the world!


Grad student from Melbourne University. Former scriptwriter and aid worker currently studying Masters in Development Studies. Interested in humanitarian affairs, refugee issues, human rights and community development - searching for my calling within one of these fields if not all of them ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Can offer space and be your host in Melbourne, should you find yourself there someday.

Can offer my room in Kuala Lumpur if you're planning to visit/travel to Malaysia. You'll have the awesome company of my sweet mom and our two darling cats :-)


First timer here! Be gentle!


Love discussing the issues that I'm currently studying but I'm also a movie and TV fan, a comic geek , a traveler and being active and adventurous.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to list out - so will attempt to do this later but my current favorite shows right now are Fringe, Community, Parks and Recreation and yes, Game of Thrones.

I'm also a comic geek and a Joss Whedon follower, so yes, I LOVED The Avengers!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the best experiences in my life so far is being an humanitarian relief worker and having had the chance to work in conflict and/or disaster stricken countries, aiding and supporting victims, refugees and locals - it was a real eye-opening experience and obviously changed my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to talk about my experiences in the entertainment industry (I was a scriptwriter and a bit actor in Malaysia for a while) and my work as an aid worker and volunteer in community support and development (worked with women and children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS; worked with refugees in Afghanistan, Pakistan and in Melbourne).

Passionate on social justice and issues related to racism and discrimination and refugee issues (possible thesis topic) - so if you wanna a discussion on these issues as well - hit me up :-)
