About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Already married, and trying to convince the wife to host again.

ABOUT ME

I like traveling. I like to experience different new things.

I like watching movies and documentaries. I can watch NGC, or Discovery or BBC all day long. Exception for Animal Planet. Haha!

I enjoy reading but not trying hard enough.

I also collect memorabilia from my travels. Bus tickets, train tickets, museum tickets, coins, notes, postcards. You name it.

Sometimes I do the typical stuffs. Sometimes I do the atypical stuffs.

That's what normal adventurous people do, methinks?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to help travelers with infos about Malaysia, about Ipoh my hometown, about anything I can. You can ask, and I'll try to answer.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well...

I couchsurfed in Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Venice, and Florence. All my hosts are my friends now. I'm truly grateful to all of them. They give me a lot more meaning to being human and to help one another. Recently I surfed in Moscow.

I hope I can meet them again and return their favour :)

Also, while in Ukraine, I participated in Language Exchange Meetings and met many nice people. It's a good idea for brushing up language skills and having nice conversations.

My first hosting experience is with Jon & Ania. Such a nice pair!

Next came Kris and Elena, spending a few days here.

After that, Clem came for a visit and we've been in contact since.

Dominik and Pola stayed for 2 nights, with a full day going through temples and caves in Ipoh. and a fun ride enjoying the view of Ipoh in night time.

Behnaz and Pegah and their mom spent a night, enjoying the company of my parents.

I participated in a few CS meetups. CS is full with very nice people!

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy epic movies, or any cultural non-Hollywood movies.
I don't listen to music.
I read classics and trying to read as variable classics as I can. if possible, classics from all over the world!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending a night at Rome Train Station, a night at a parking lot in Vienna, Odessa opera house, a month going around Europe with a travel buddy. That was sure a long month!

A trip up the river Chao Phraya.

A lone flight to Egypt and back to Ukraine.

Braving a tropical monsoon, trying to reach the bus station in a taxi, in the middle of the night, in stormy Manila, only to arrive at the bus station with a power outage and reaching the airport and having our flight delayed for 5 hours, to let the storm pass through our flight path.

Recently I climbed Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak in Malaysia and Borneo. I didn't reach the summit though (age is catching up on me, sigh). But I'll try again next year. This time with proper stamina and fitness training.

Teach, Learn, Share

Amsterdam is sure a popular city, you have to do a long search for CSers there. and the bus tickets going there sells fast. you don't want to miss your bus~

What I Can Share with Hosts

A trip around town, dinner at the local hotspot, a cultural experience in martial arts, perhaps?
