About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Nothing specific though trying to promote random act of kindness.

ABOUT ME

Just another ordinary human being who like to have a balanced life. I enjoy many things though I prefer outdoor activities and good company.

Should you like to know more, can I leave the rest to you to find out? =)

Take good care and stay "Happy Always" :-)

PHILOSOPHY

The happiest people don't have the best of everything.
They just make the best of everything!

The richest person is not the one who has the most but the one who needs the least.

Collect beautiful memories; not things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Being a passionate traveller and photographer, I know my country fairly well. Will provide short tour whenever possible else I will usually able to meet for meals or drinks. Almost ever ready to provide maps and travel tips. Oh, please do not mistaken me as a tour agent. =D

Sometimes, my guest room is available and if timing is right, guest(s) can use that room. It is furnished with a queen sized bed and air-conditioned. I like my guest(s) to have a comfortable place to sleep/rest. So, I won't offer my couch. =P
