About Me

I AM WHO I AM AND I AM NOWHERE NEAR PERFECTION!

I am just a simple, laid-back person, a day dreamer, a workaholic, a wonderer, a traveler, a backpacker, a ... I don't smoke or drink, love adventure, nature, travel and would like to live and see the world ...

"Everyone sees who I appear to be
But only a few know the real me
You can only see what I choose to show
There's so much more you just don't know ..."

Hence, would like you to tell me what you see as the real me by leaving a reference after you have surfed my couch or have hosted me.

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them" - Walt Disney

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Back in 2008, while browsing the internet, found this interesting website, decided to join as member. That was how it get started. But it was only after two years that I started participating in it.

My first solo backpacking to Nepal in February 2010 was my first couch surfing experience where I surfed the "Save the (Red) Panda Foundation". From here, my participation in couch surfing moves on ...

Interests

To see the world ...

Nature walk, trekking, hiking, mountain climbing, swimming, and racquet games.

I play tennis every week but I don't watch tennis matches. I don't play badminton but I like to watch badminton matches. I don't drive but I have a car license and I love to watch F1 races.

Music, Movies & Books

I don't read any book but I surf net and read anything interesting online. I seldom watch movies and I hardly listen to music, but I love music and songs!

In short, I don't have any favorite movies, songs, musicians, authors, books, producers ...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-Participated in numerous full marathons
-Climbed highest mountain in South East Asia
(Mount Kinabalu) and IndoChina (Mount Fansipan)
-Solo Backpacking without any plan, just go ...
-Trekking in Nepal during cold winter without proper attire. With just a thin t-shirt, my shorts and a pair of sandals, add-on gadgets are my swimming pants, a borrowed jumper, a borrowed cap, a pair of socks donated by my guide and begins my long and lonely journey on the snowy mountains ... my first winter experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach what you know and learn anything you don't know and is interesting to learn ...

Sharing what we have, not what we don’t have, or what we would like to have ... Most important, I am sharing my couch with you strangers out there ...
