About Me


To boldly go....!


I'm from Indonesian parents but I was born and raised in the Netherlands. My friends say I'm an outgoing person, so I guess that's true! I like to meet new people and I'm always very curious how other people live.

I like to play pool alot and I can even give lessons :)


You never know how the cookie crumbles!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Because I don't have much room I can only meet other CSers for a cup of coffee or tea in my city and show them around. When I have more room I would like to host too.


I have couchsurfed in Japan and I loved everything about it! I have met so many people and CSers in particular, it's such a wonderful community. CS people in general are curious, fun loving, full of energy and very social. I'll be couchsurfing alot when I'm traveling again.


A lot of things but to sum it all up I have to say it's things people achieve that are thought to be impossible.

But I like to play pool billiards alot :D
