About Me


To visit as many places as I can, and hopefully, will play a part in creating a borderless world.


One word,simply....curious. I am curious about different cultures, countries,getting to know people and making friends.

Ok, here goes about me...I am a responsible person. I don't view Couchsurfing as all about a place to get free accommodation, but a great opportunity to meet people from around the world. When I couch, I will be respectful of my host's place, his/her time and privacy. Which means keeping the place clean, no late nights and not to be disruptive to the host's daily routine.

I am also appreciative and grateful for the trust that my hosts (past & future) have in me,

I am not a party-goer, I don't smoke and drink little.(I have no problem with people who do), though I do enjoy an occasional night out of good fun with nice people.

I will definitely will take the time to know my hosts/guests, to have interesting conversations with them, exchange of thoughts and ideas, and will make an effort to keep in touch with them.


Be compassionate, honest,gracious, and to never regret for not trying.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I believes in the concept of a "borderless world".
And what better way to do it, than by opening our doors to guests from around the world? : )


I live with my grandmother, mother and sister(yes, a house of strong women ;)).Just started hosting recently as I have moved in to my new house.

People I have hosted :
1) Jasmine Sum,Malaysia (Feb 2010)
2) Fumi,Japan(May 2010)
3) June & James(July 2010), and a group of other friends during World Cup Semis
4)Esther, The Netherlands(Jan 2011)

Couchsurfed in Paris and Amsterdam in 2008, and I am amazed when my host handed me the key to her apartment right away when I met her.Really appreciated her trust in me.

Couchsurfed in KL and PJ too, and became good friends with some CS members.


Musicals, museums, a walk in beautiful parks, fast paced cities, clubs, live bands.

Music, Movies, and Books

movies (too many to name all) :
1)The Day The Earth Stood Still (a very accurate potrayal of our destructive human race)
2) Dead Poets Society - beautiful and moving
3) Flashdance - What can I say, one of the best dance movies from the 80's and great soundtrack
Music :
2)music from the 80's - can I dare say that's when real pop music was made? :)

Books(not reading enough!):
1)Falling Leaves (Adeline Yen Mah)
2)Two Lives, And Equal Music (Vikram Seth)
3)Currently reading To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee (a great classic but only got around to reading it just now)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Netherlands, Singapore, Thailand, United States, Uruguay
