About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Nothing to be really classified as 'mission'. Just enjoying the fruits of my labour!
By the way, I usually respond to every message, but last-minute request may not get a prompt answer.

ABOUT ME
Would usually like to take the view that people are good at heart until proven otherwise. Realistic, practical and sensible. Young-at heart, younger in looks. Integrity and honesty mean a lot to me.

PHILOSOPHY
Life should never be meant for 'busting and fighting' and accumulating of wealth and power and promoting one's religious ideologies. Would like to believe all the talks about Heaven and Hell and God, but have not been convinced of their existence yet. You can say I'm a atheist or a free-thinker or a non-believer. What I believe is that Life should be meant to be lived unselfishly, honestly, happily and peacefully.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

CS projects that can build better understanding among people and CSers who genuinely need a host will be given assistance.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A negative aspect of hosting is that, some CSers choose to take for granted the hospitality they have received. A few CSers in the past had not even given a reference. (If you have been hosted, you are expected to write your reference first.)

Interests

Hope to have more time for the outdoors (trekking, mountain climbing, rafting, swimming) which I used to enjoy. I hope that people I've hosted will in turn host me when I visit their city. Current main interest is to travel and to find a balance in life.

Music, Movies, and Books

Prefer the classics, especially the musicals - films with songs and dance - from Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers' movies to films with Rogers/Hammerstein's scores (King and I, South Pacific) to A.Llyod-Webber musicals (Phantom of the Opera, Cats) + Lawrence of Arabia, Ben Hur + comedies - with Hugh Grant or Robin Williams. Films with too much CGIs just don't appeal to me.
Music - Beatles, Dylan, J.Taylor, J.Baez, Carole King, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, L.Minnelli, Rod Stewart, Cilla Black, ABBA, Dusty Springfield.
Books - with espionage theme or satire.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nothing really amazing - just being 'down-to-earth'

Teach, Learn, Share

Ask any pertinent question and you'd be answered. Asking is a learning-sharing process.

What I Can Share with Hosts

An exchange of Life's perspectives.
Need any advice in HR management? That will be US$10/hour !!
