About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find his own way to go...

ABOUT ME

I consider myself as a laid back person.I really love to share,always want to help and to give all I can, I can sacrifice something just for friend and I'm happy to do it. I'm a man who is really hard to say NO towards the people who ask for help.Right now, I feel like I have been woken up from my hibernation-period in life. It's time for me to go out, move and travel, have my own adventures and learn who I really am. It's scary as hell to be honest but i feel it is the right thing to do and hopefully i can lose all those fears and doubts and become a strong person, educated by the things he has seen in the world, able to think for himself and doing his best to make this world as nice a place as he can. I am perhaps a bit shy, but in my mind i try to challenge myself as much as i can by putting myself into situations that scare me a bit. It's the reason I like visiting tribes, mingling with disabled people, broadcasting and traveling, I feel that I find the rewards are very much worth it.I'm interested in other people, especially people who try to live life unexpectedly (as i dream of doing that myself) and full of surprises. I also consider that i'm a transparent person, with a restless nature.I respect all the people and all the opinions, Always really want to know more about the life, about the people. About personal concerns, culture and thoughts. I always trying to grow up inside me. I enjoy the communication type, I love the man I became and I really want to share those life experience with as many as possible. C'mon! Spread the energy of love without expecting anything!I don't know if i'm good at writing something like this summary because i think i'm not really sure what i want to say about myself, it's difficult to talk about me in few lines, but I'm always open to know you, and maybe share some interesting speaking :) i'm better at meeting someone in real life. Maybe one day i'll have the pleasure to meet you?SEE YOU my next best friend!

PHILOSOPHY

-"Good things happen to good people" !-"My father used to say that there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet"-"Equality- In people that everyone is the same.. there is no reason to treat a dog differently from a insect to a person be it a fisherman or the PM. Each one is entitled to the same treatment from you and the class based society is baseless. ( Evidenced in the manner u interact with the world or more than that the strangers that one meet in life.. from the fruit vendor to the CEO of a firm)"-"Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill"-"In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like meeting new people. Sometimes It makes me sad knowing there is a whole world out there and I have not seen any of it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Living with indigenous people (tribes) in the jungle. Felt down from the boat in a big ocean. Chosen as a tourism ambassador of the Mentawai island, famous as a Radio announcer, felt the strongest earthquake once in my lifetime. Suffer from dengue fever. My car jumped into the cliff and flipped over (close to death) when I was on my way to Solok. I lost my beloved nephew ( He died) when I backpacked with Ethan and sadly I cant come back to see him for the last time (that's the biggest regret that I feel until now). Traveling together with the kayakers from Netherlands in Mentawai Island for Sumatera Challenge.Org project.
