About Me



I’m an open minded Chinese Malaysian who likes adventures and travels besides crazily focus on businesses. Would like to get more friends who like to travel likes me.


Naturally quiet, but I can be talkative when I met the right guy. I can be funny but don't ask me to tell a joke, I'm not good in telling jokes! @@
It's easy to get close with me if you are thoughtful, funny and appreciating easily.

I'm an entrepreneur, I been in the social marketing business since 2006, I’m also in Real Estate and Homestay / Airbnb manager for about 10 properties. I have flexible time, which means I make up my own working time, my travel time, it's also means I don’t have a fixed working hour and mostly I can be working all the time or holiday when I want it! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I get to know about CS when a Spanish surfer, Jorge who hitchhiked my car from Penang to KL, we spent good time together for a day and he told me about this wonderful website!
