No, you are not seeing things. Yes, I am a motherfucking mermaid. The name is Ildrich, but everyone calls me Haute Mess. Originally from the Philippines. Grew up in Las Vegas. Currently spreading ratchetry in Seattle. I like to eat, drink, and twerk. I'm super easy going and enjoy pretty much everything. Seriously, I'm down for whatever... from a crazy night out of partying to hiking to camping to just chilling and drinking at a random dive bar. Try me. Fun fact: my middle name is Classy.

I enjoy traveling alone, so naturally, couchsurfing is the perfect fit for me. I've been an active member since 2010 and I can honestly say that I've met a good chunk of who I consider my "best friends" through couchsurfing. I would not have been able to travel to all the places I've been to if it wasn't for couchsurfing. As such, I try to give back to the CS community by hosting travelers as much as I can.

Below are the four things I look at when I evaluate requests from surfers:

1. Substance of request (personalized vs copy + paste)
2. Profile information (are we a good fit? am I gonna learn something new from you?)
3. Order of requests (first come, first serve)

Also, please include the following information in your request. It helps me weed out people that send mass copy + paste requests:

1. Why do you want surf my couch?
2. Why should I host you?
3. If you could be Beyonce for one day, what would Queen Bey do?
4. On a scale of Starbucks to Ugg boots, how #basic are you?
5. y = mx + b. Calculate the slope of the line if the y-intercept is 69.

Just kidding about the last one. Haha. Handwritten post cards are much appreciated! So, bring one from your home country or your previous destination :)

You probably don't give a shit, but here's my Instagram account for my travel adventures. I promise it's not as ratchet as this page: https://instagram.com/_haute_mess/

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To twerk all over the world and spread ratchetry to defeat ISIS. I also enjoy adventures with random strangers with funny accents.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Hip-Hop and electronic music in general. Deep house, trance, techno, tech-house, and trap are a huge plus. Pretty much anything that will give me the urge to twerk like a two-dollar whore will do the trick.

Movies: I like comedy, independent foreign films, and documentaries: Y tu Mamá También | Maria Full of Grace | Un Prophete | Beautiful Boxer | Paris is Burning | Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

Books: Crack is Whack by Whitney Houston (Miss you, girl!)
