About Me


Corporate Tech guy in Learning & Development (during most days) which helps fund my trips!

I am open-minded, curious, sometimes serious, and likes to have adventures! I despise routine.

I love going to places that have a lot of culture and are also hip at the same time- as long as there's a good music scene! I consider myself a bit of a flashpacker when traveling but I'm not afraid to rough it up. I can be quite frugal in order to have the "local" experience.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am hoping to meet locals and travellers who can share a piece of their story with me. Someone who I can easily be comfortable having conversations with about anything under the sun.

If you happen to be in Manila, I can also show you around the "local" way without any pretentions nor any VIP treatment for you. It's also a plus if you like street food and cheap beer in dive bars/beer gardens. I can also host you in my place if the timing is right. My apartment's pretty small so you'll have to sleep on a sofa couch. But hey, isn't that what couchsurfing is all about? :P

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Did the gorge swing in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe- was the most exhilarating experience I’ve ever done!

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to TEACH my knowledge about things that I know I'm good at such as how I save my money for travels, plan for my trips and getting the best deals. I also like to LEARN about different cultures and places. SHARING of knowledge and having intellectual conversations that spark philosophical arguements are things I look for with people whilst having a bottle of beer :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

*I enjoy sharing/giving out a piece of where I come from
*I have a set of ears that I put to use. Also a mouth i use for friendly arguements
*Local beer at some random street/dive bar
*Manila living for CSurfers!
