I am currently working in Jakarta, not originally from here but have been living here since 2017. I'm staying in studio apartment relatively near from jakarta airport. preferably to host during weekends but lets see.
I travel every now and then. was idle from traveling from 2020 to 2021 due to covid. taiwan, japan, india or nepal are next countries to visit in my bucketlist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
because why not. travelers community is the most global a community can get. it would be very interesting to be part of it.
Lately into badminton and chess. not a pro though, playing them for fun.

Music, Movies, and Books
i love sort of chill ambiences songs with beautifully written lyrics.
I am not very literate with musical technicalities and terms, but among my favorite international artists are sufjan stevens, novo amor, kings of convenience, and vansire.
i also love 90s-2000s indonesian songs.
i read tolkien works, and some mainstream philosophical books.

coincidentally attended some major world political events. was in cairo during 2013 egyptian revolution and presidential coup. and was in hongkong during 2019 protest.
Teach, Learn, Share
can tell some random trivias that may not have any practical use. want to learn how is it like to live in another part of the world.

good snacks, and alternative ways to travel cities i have lived in, like chilling spots or good restaurants only known to us locals.
