About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Host and meet new friends around the world

ABOUT ME

Ummmm dont really have much to say but i think they would say am social funny outgoing and loving.
I am an outgoing, adventurous and fun person. I survive this world by trying my best to enjoy every moment of it. Though that doesn't always happen. :D For my friends they see me as a bit crazy and wild, yet, they still stay as my friends, so I believe I have to have done something right! I am not sure what to write here,I love education and hate schooling. I try to do stuff out of the box, or at least that's what I think. Through my experiences you only live once and enjoy life as you can WORK HARD and PLAY HARD.

PHILOSOPHY

Make art to start conversation in your community; build in the world up to be more helpful and generous with its resources; power to the people; listen to everyone and work together to make a more caring society.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to be an open-minded traveller, not only by being receptive to other ways of life, but also by being always willing to share with others my experiences. At the same time, I recognise that as a traveller, I should not be expecting a free ride in my host country. Hence, as much as my abilities allow, I want to learn as much as possible about the customs and languages of the countries I will visit.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Its really nice to host people knowing you get to learn from each others backgrounds and cultures. Something i would do for a very long time. :)

Interests

I spend my life time working helping out working en spending time with my family and friends. CAmping,Cooking,going out to new places exploring,Clubs,motocross racing and motor rally.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I volunteered to an orphanage in sports development and community work,helped the kids and donated a few items.

Teach, Learn, Share

There is this Zen story that I find really insightful, which embodies the theme of living in the present—something that in our busy, modern world is becoming increasingly difficult to do. Nonetheless, I believe that it is really important for us to be grounded in the present and to appreciate the small things in life, even when we are not in the best of situations! Here goes:

"A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled, the tiger after him. Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge. The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him. Only the vine sustained him.

Two mice, one white and one black, little by little started to gnaw away the vine. The man saw a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. How sweet it tasted!"

-Paul Reps and Nyogen Senzaki, Zen Flesh Zen Bones: A Collection of Zen and Pre-Zen Writings (Singapore: Tuttle Publishing, 1988), 38-39.
