About Me


Start Doing things that I LOVE!!!!!


I'm just a simple person and love to make new friends wherever I go.I learned a lot about life,love and how to survived on my own through travelling.Definitely we came from different parts of the world with different backgrounds but all of us are similar in life.I met a lot of interesting and adventure persons since I joined Couchsurfing and some did inspired me in a way.
I am up for hitchhiking,carpooling,
camping and etc whichever possible.Life's too short to just waste it.So I start doing things that I love....

Please READ my PROFILE and please be reminded that CS is not a dating website.
I won't entertain any private messages for 'dating' and I'm not interested at all.

Thank you!Terima Kasih.


Life is too short.Spend most of the quality time to do what you like the most...and having FUN all the way and most important thing is just stay HAPPY!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I got to know CS while I was hosting one of CSer from Indonesia and within few days after that I signed up as one of the member...since I like to make new friends and travelling.I hope I can be a good host and meet more new nice people from all over the world.


2010 - India was the first country I've used to couch.It was a really unexpected environment from what I've heard before.Most of the Indian host I've couch with are very friendly and I really have good and fond memories here especially in Rajasthan.People were so friendly and welcoming and I'll miss India once I got back home.Would love to come again in future!

2012 - Been all around ASEAN countries, participate in the CS events from different CS Community groups, Bali,Singapore,Thailand.Ending my year 2012 by visiting Myanmar, a country that I am excited to go for even for a few days. Learned a lot about the culture,values and lifestyles of Burmese.They are friendly and I would want to explore more, outskirt of Yangon.Hopefully, the government of Burma will let more independent traveller like us to see their untouched beautiful country side.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelling alone(which is not common for Asian girl,and also Moslem travelling alone)and get to meet good and nice people all the way and having a really good time in each place I've been to.Being able to understand new cultures,religion and traditions and got to see more beautiful old architecture and monuments.So gratefull of being treated like a daughter with the family that I couch with and having a new family there.And All I've found and experiences it during my India trip recently.

I have an interviewed during my trip for an article about Couchsurfing in Bangkok by ESCAPES featured some of common faces of CS, including me!:)

May'14 - Interviewed by Mix-FM Medan 90.8 regarding my travel and adventure in India.I was traveling to Indonesia(Medan & Aceh)that time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn more foreign languages and the cultures of other countries..Not only that,but to become a responsible human being and to give more volunteer service to the needy in terms of educations.

What I Can Share with Hosts
