Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I'm overseas I surf with the locals! When I'm home, I'd be glad to reciprocate and show others around. (My house is under renovation for now.)
Need any tips about travelling in Singapore? Just drop me a mail. :)

From time to time, I organize events for CSers. Hit me up if you're interested:
- Swimming & Sunset at Chinese Garden
- Cycling in Pulau Ubin / at Punggol Waterway
- Hiking at Bukit Timah Hill / MacRitchie Reservoir / Southern Ridges
- Skateboarding to Marina Barrage
- Pizza & Movie Nights etc.


Capturing moments in time I'd otherwise forget through my flying brick (yes, the camera); lying on random grass patches, sometimes with a few boxes of cheap sushi; being in the great outdoors; wandering where I shouldn't be (urbex); and doing a little good in this world just once in a while. And just maybe, you?

Music, Movies, and Books

You can never have enough of comedies! I enjoy foreign films esp. French and German ones. Films that inspire deep thought and reflection are also good when I'm in the mood.

Huge alternative and indie music geek. Think: alt-J, Beach House, Bombay Bicycle Club, Florence and the Machine, Bicycle Club, Chet Faker, Cults, Dr. Dog, Grizzly Bear, Hot Chip, Milo Greene, Passion Pit, Sigur Rós, The Temper Trap, The xx, Two Door Cinema Club, etc. Also, numerous songs from the Putumayo World Music.

Currently reading anthologies of short stories, biographies of random personalities, books about the history of common and insignificant objects, and travel stories (of course)! Haven't been able to complete a fiction book since my stint in the army.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably the couple of nights I spent lost in the Bruneian jungles with limited food and water — surviving it made me realize that nothing is impossible as long as you believe in yourself.

Teach, Learn, Share

Basic Chinese anyone? I can always teach some common greetings or phrases in Chinese. Might always come in handy when China takes over the world!

I'm pretty decent with a camera, but I've no clue how to teach someone photography. We could always go out for field trips to hone our skills together!

Foreign languages interest me! I used to study the German language back in high school and now in university, I'm learning French. Would definitely be great to have someone to converse with. I don't know, I just love languages!

If you can cook, share your secret recipes with me! Oh, and if someone offers to teach me surfing or diving, that will just be awesome!


What I Can Share with Hosts

Leave your kitchen with me for an afternoon and I will attempt to make a non-lethal dinner for us. Singaporean food is a fusion of Chinese, Indian, Malay and Southeast Asian cuisine. If we are what we eat, that makes us pretty cool eh?

I'm also not a half-bad photographer. I love making portraits of people. :)

Countries I’ve Visited

Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore
