About Me

Enjoying life as happy as possible while share anything I could share to others.

I work in books industry for years, sometimes also writing for several magazines (mostly traveling articles) and politician biographies. Book is my life also my hobby 😊 Now I run my own books publisher.

Traveling is my others love beside books, always spare my free times to see a new things outside my country. To find a perspective, to rediscover my self.


Just try to do our best, share alot and help alot.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling for me is not just visiting one place or another, capture the best shot and go back home. Traveling is a life journey, not only to see a new place, but also to feel new experience, in touch with locals, and share anything we could share.


I got alot of good friends from CS. I'd learned alot of experiences either. Its always difficult to pick which one is the best! I always believe that the world is to big to live alone and to know just one place.


Book is my biggest interest, I loved to read, write, and collecting books, especially fiction, comics, and historical books. But, no, Im not that kind of nerd-bookworm-weirdo-in-glasses like sometimes you watch on movie, that kind of bookworm doesnt really exist in real life :D My others interest is martial art. I used to teach woman self defense around Indonesia. Now im start enjoying yoga for my sport.

I also love to cook so I can share some Indonesian recipe or other Asian recipe. If I have times I would love to do a Workaway again, last time I did a voluteering in small village in Slovenia.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read alot in my life, like alot alot 😬 so its always difficult to pick up which one is the best shot. But I mostly collecting some fantasy fiction, history, comic, and books about culinary journey.

My personal taste of music are jazz, soul, r&b or something enchanted for my ear and heart. I like to brows on Youtube, looking for movies from all over the world because its another way to know other cultures. But yeah I like kind of historical movies or easy drama.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
