About Me


World Citizen


Shapeshifter. Free Thinker (or not). Playful. Calm. Optometrist. Naah not Optometrist but i like this word. Optimistic. Sarcastic. Out of the square (and the Hexagon). Empathetic. Easy going. Controversial.


Shape life like a piece of art.
One shouldn't make a living by killing.
Vegetarianism is the absolute snob attitude. Grind your teeth and drink soups instead. Humanity will solve starvation with cannibalism. Naah I'm just kidding. But I would love to eat some vegans for dinner.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Johor Bahru GoogleMap
Can I do the washing-up ?
I enjoy meeting new people in the CS community and connect them somehow. I have experienced quite the bohemian life and have an arsenal of stories to share.


I joined the community in July 2007. Hosted, Surfed and Met amazing open-minded people with caring hearts in New-Zealand (Dunedin, Rotorua, Wellington), Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Alice Springs), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Melacca, Ranau, Penang), Indonesia (Jakarta, Balikpapan, Bali), Canada (Vancouver BC), USA (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Honolulu), Philippines (Manila), Thailand (Phuket, Bangkok), Singapore, France (Paris, Lyon), Italy (Roma), Taiwan (Taipei) and Iran (Tehran).


Cooking with no skill but experimental techniques.
Music lover but can't play a tune.
Graphic fanatic but can't draw a line.
Cinema aficionado, Theatre curious and RPG cultist.
Dance maniac, Capoeirista.
