If you send me a one-liner, or a useless copy and paste request, you will get telt. CS is not a hostel or a hotel, stop treating it like one!
I grew up in Singapore, and moved to Glasgow about 4 years ago. I work as a designer and do lots of image editing and some digital illustration. I love good beer, good food and good company.
Like most of Glasgow, I live in an old tenenment flat that was built in the 1890s or 1900s. The flat is in the Southside. It's very close to the center of town - about 10 minutes on the bus, or 1 train stop to Glasgow Central station. See My Home and Photos for more details.
I live with my boyfriend, who I met through Couchsurfing when I first moved here. You can check out his profile here: https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/3124827/profile (we are accepting guests even if his profile says we're not - he's not updated it yet)
I try to live as green as I can, by composting, recycling, using family cloths aka reusable cloth tissue paper, and using handkerchiefs! As I'm a huge foodie who still misses the amazing food options you can get in Singapore, any requests offering to cook will be a bonus! I will try anything twice - it's hard to tell if you really like something just by one taste. I am a meat eater but am very happy to have vegetarian or vegan food with surfers.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet and share stories, ideas and food! I did a number of long trips when I was in university and used Couchsurfing extensively and loved it. I still keep in touch with some friends I made about 7 years ago through CS, even meeting them again somewhere else in the world. It's great and I love the networks and worlds that CS opens up to people.
Board games: Settlers of Catan, Carcasonne, Caverna (my favourite), Pandemic (cooperative game!) and my most prized find from the charity shop: Civilization (Sid Meier) in a board game! So if the weather's shite, you can stay in and play some games.

What I Can Share with Hosts
I've learnt how to cook a few local Singaporean foods since moving to the UK, which I'll be really really happy to share.
I can also make you something with the sewing machine if there is time.
