Live free and happy, enjoy life and love everyone, give the best that i could give to make them happy...
It is better to give than to received.
Every one, every person we met has a purpose in our journey which I called life...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To travel in other country coz for a asian like me is was not that easy, it was so cool to see and learn the different culture of different places, sometimes you have to know there basic language to communicate with them, but knowing there culture was an amazing expecience, you have to get to know them to win there trust.

Teach, Learn, Share

We could meet any person any time any where, but we have to study there culture or even know there culture, every place every location have culture, we have to respect it.
Its easy to have a friend in just a second, but thru getting to know him/her we will build our trust, and its very important, make sure that he trust you and you trust him, and be honest always, and be caution to anyone, it not rude to even take a look for the ID's or any Identification Card it was just a part of getting to know each other and know who he/she realy was.
Share some thought and have fun...
