About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Uni or gap year? Decision decision!

ABOUT ME

Daniel is just an average student, young travel devotee, thinker, amateur critic , and movie & cinematography junkie.
I was pretty much active in writing movie articles, you can see them on my blog here (sorry most of them are not written in english) http://www.danielpolitton.blogspot.com

I don't know why my CS location hasn't changed since I cameback from Bangkok, well right now I am in Jakarta!

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life to the fullest. I enjoy life too much that I can't help when imagining how it will be when I get old. I'm not a good believer, theoterical bullshit gets me a little sick to my stomach.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-I witnessed an accident on the road when I was a kid, a little boy got hit to death by a bus which crushed and shattered his head.
-Missing a train in Thailand because I was very thirsty and went to 711 when it was the time to board the train. And my friends left me. (I always weirdly wanted to experience missing a train/flight. Ha, ha!)
-Eating pork for the first time during my 1 month travel around SE Asia. Wow I missed what is called Heaven!!
-Threw up all over the place even inside a taxi after being drunk in HCMC. Even I slept at the lobby the whole night because I couldn't climb the stairs. Pretty embarassing T_T
-Getting one of the worst sunburns I have ever had that I never wanted to get after biking exploring Angkor Wat for almost 8hours non stop under the crazy heat in Cambodia! Pfffffff I want my skin back!
-The excitements when I'm sitting on a plane about to take off and those times when I am away from home to travel.
