About Me


Have more fun!!! and update the profile -.-


I am a simple guy who is trying to enjoy his life as much as possible.

Currently living in Singapore and seems like I am going to be here for a while.

My ultimate plan in life is to settle down with like minded people and live in a self-sustaining village. To read more:

In order to realize this plan, currently I am trying to improve my skills by volunteering in various areas such as construction, gardening, crafting, carpentry, painting, renovation etc.


"If we grew our own food, we wouldn't waste a third of it as we do today. If we made our own tables and chairs, we wouldn't throw them out the moment we changed the interior decor. If we had to clean our own drinking water, we probably wouldn't contaminate it."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, I host and try to attend local meetings and events.


I think references explain the experience better.
