About Me

Currently, living in Dublin, trying to unfold the ability, disability and possibility from my inner-self. Learning love, tolerance and forgiveness with the people surrounded me.

I'm Chin Ling. Born and grew up in the south of Malaysia - Johor Bahru, the gateway to Singapore. When I was 20, I studied and worked as a graphic designer in Kuala Lumpur, traveled to many dream places and also made a working holiday in New Zealand in 2012. Everything was so great to me!

I enjoy cooking and I also enjoy learning in farm, learning about organic, learning the basic thing of life. I think life can be very simple if we live healthily. We don't need much and there comes the happiness. I'm also learning about zero waste and trying my best to use as less plastic as possible, feel free to share some nice ideas :)

I believe when life surrounded by shopping malls, what we learn is about brand. When life surrounded by wild, what we learn is about nature.


Work happily, live happily, play happily and living in a simple way

Trying to accept and observe everything as it is without labeling

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I surfed in Taiwan for the first time. After that, I hosted quite a lot of people when I was working in Kuala Lumpur and also joined various local gatherings. That was my greatest time!

It is a great idea connecting people. I do couch surfing time by time, I enjoy spending time with CSers during my trip :)
