About Me

I was born and raised in the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. Completed my 5 years architecture studies in a local university located at the southern state Malaysia before landed myself in Singapore, where I am currently working.

Been staying in this little red dot for over 4 years and grabbed the opportunity to travel around while I can.

I enjoy exploring new places and taking my time observing things that happens around. I may be quiet sometimes but I do get along well with people. I believe living is not about seeing the world but to discover yourself and who knows, maybe someone else.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

First heard about CS in 2013 when a friend told me about her experience in Hong Kong and and I figured it would be a nice way to make new friends oversea.

Gradually through the weekly meetings I have met some travelers from abroad and made good friends which we still keep in touch til now. I have only surfed once in during my trip to Japan in 2015 and it I must say it was a pretty good experience staying in a local environment.


I enjoy looking at maps and exploring places with them. It's like my hobby.

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy reading books by Haruki Murakami and listening to good music. Titanic will still be my favourite movie of all time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed to the top of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak at the South East Asia, and a year later, to the peak of Mt Rinjani at Lombok. I wonder what's next to come?
