About Me


to travel and see the world :)


i follow the sun!


it's awesome to travel and see the world --but it's even more awesome to see your world through another traveler's eyes. :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Probably high time for me to update my profile! Finally got around to it! I am still fairly new in New Zealand --- well, 2 years really! but still trying to settle down. i am eager to meet the locals or the permanent travelers in whichever city i'll wander to :)
-meet local or international travelers in my city and show them around if there's enough time
-showcase my city --- Cebu! :)
i'm based in AKL for the meantime so no show-casing of Cebu for now. :)


-went around Cebu with Tash from Manila
-coffee with Darby and Glaiza from Pampanga
-community outreach program in CS Cebu
-island hopping---to 6 islands for 6 days!!! with John from Holland and Am-am from Cebu
-Larsians dinner then beers with travelers and local Cebu-CSers
-coffee then surfed at Chris and Warwick's gorgeous home :) in Omokoroa
-island travels with John (from Holland) -- Philippine Islands, Cook Islands, Malaysian Islands, Brunei, Singapore (St. John's Island in SG!)
-beers with Kees (from Holland) in Rarotonga with his local friends

i've come across good friends through CS-Cebu and i'm excited to meet both locals and travelers alike here in AKL. :)

still settling down in Auckland and excited to meet the CS-Kiwi locals. :)



beach! beach! beach! :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i have been to, lived in, and seen the the many beautiful islands of Maldives... it's really paradise and not even the beaches of my country can beat that. :) i'm lucky to experience the (many) 5-star plus luxury resorts in Maldives... water villas, infinity pools and all... unfortunately not as a tourist. haha. but as a work permit holder! but lucky and blessed just the same! :)

i have bungy jumped in Chiang Mai! one off the bucket list but will SURELY NOT do again! :D

i've taken long flights and short flights, rode a seaplane, speedboat, luxury yacht, dhoni boats, pump-boats, row boats, i've walked, taken an 8-hour bus to cross cities, a night-train, a 14-hour bus ride! swam and rowed (pushed?) a kayak to cross islands. i've been bitten by a jellyfish, got stuck in a non-smoking airport for 7 hours! slept in the car, got lost high up on the foggy mountains in the dark --- the world is a beautiful place and i've yet to see the rest of it! :)

Countries I've Visited

Brunei Darussalam, Cook Islands, Malaysia, Maldives, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand

Countries I've Lived In
