About Me

Walking my own path.


I took a brave decision on August 2013 to hitchhike from Penang to Chiang Mai. I wanted to convince my family that the outside world isn't as dangerous as they have thought. I wanted to tell the people around me especially the Chinese to look beyond money and wealth and to live the present day rather than worrying about tomorrow. I wanted to let my friends who have dreams but afraid of taking the first step not to be afraid but step out bravely to chose the path they want to walk. I did it. And I will continue doing it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


On the year of 2009, when I joined a Russian friend on his trip to the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.


Started with surfing, now mostly do hosting people, sometimes gathering and meet new friends.


Meet new people, immerse myself in new cultures, learn new perspectives, live connection with the world. In short, traveling.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Too many. Any good song is fine.

Movie: Into the wild. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. La vita e bella...

Books: A Fortune Teller Told Me, Shantaram...
