About Me

CURRENT MISSION

No fear, just love and self-control.

ABOUT ME

I'm a really easy-going and fun-loving person. I love to travel, explore and meet different people of different cultures. Having lived in Asia, Europe and now the Middle East I am generally receptive to new food, cultures, languages and people. I love stories! I love hearing stories and I feel people on Couchsurfing have the best stories. I love adventure, being different but most of all being human, appreciative and kind.

PHILOSOPHY

To have No Regrets! To become the person the you want to be and also to always remember to stay grounded, human and to be free, loving and at peace. I follow quite the hippie life philosophy.

Teach, Learn, Share

I come from Singapore and I've spent the last 5 years of my life living in Singapore, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Paris and now in Dubai. Moving from country to country, I've seen my fair share of different cultures and people. I believe I would be able to share my insights on different countries, I've also travelled to more than 30 different countries (and counting) and I also am a certified spinning and yoga instructor so on some days you can join me in one of my classes during your stay :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

My couch which pulls out into a bed. I also live 5 minutes from the beach in the heart of the city. I work during the day but always happy to go out in the evening. I can’t cook so definitely not a host who cooks for surfers!
