About Me


Continue searching for more jokes around the world.


Born on Southern Island. Floating is my favourite hobby.

At High School, went to the far South. Then, at University, I tried the far North. Spent sometime working on a Caribbean island. After 2 years in Nepali village, "the Black pearl of Asia" starters the african chapter in Kampala, the pearl of Africa. Then being drifted to Znz in Tz and ended up in Kinshasa, DRCongo.

"Desperately optimist", as friends say.
My life is like a big joke.


Life is too short to think negative.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I had difficulty to host my ex-colleague, then we surfed together in my city.

Starting slowly, but met amazing people. Hoping to meet even more exciting ones, so now my couch is open.


First time was surfing in my city even before becoming a member. Second time was in China. I even plan the trip after seeing nice photos on CS. I advice NOT to put amazing photos if you don't want to receive too many guests!


funny and interesting conversation, floating, diving, dancing, good music, and doing plenty of things.

Music, Movies & Books

I prefer Bollywood to Hollywood in general.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

too many to write in this tiny box...

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to play music, including steelpans. I learned a bit of traditional Indian dance, and hoping for African one.
I look very local everywhere in Asia. I don't get ripped off, or at least I have never noticed. So maybe I can share how to manage without paying tourist price...Now I am thinking how I can look more African.

BTW, I am qualified Thai masseuse.
