About Me

I see myself as an optimist. I try to focus on what's good in this world and believe that it (the world) will bless me will all the good it has to offer.

Currently working as a Life Coach in an after-school student care service provider for Primary School (Elementary) students where I help to guide and nurture them to be better individuals later in life.

On the side-lines, I am a Creative Director of AEDLAR (SG) LLP, a start-up which provides Marketing services, Branding/ Rebranding consultancy service as well as Events Management services.

I am also passionate about the Arts, and as much as possible, will immerse myself in the Arts, be it as a patron or as a participant.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Living in Singapore, I feel stifled and in dream of travelling the world.

I would love to meet new people on my travels and exchange ideas, philosophies and/or expertise in whatever sparks my interest.

The 'push' that made me sign up for a Couchsurfing identity was a quote from a self-help book - 'The Art of Non-Conformity' by Chris Guillebeau, which reads:
"When faced with uncertainty about taking a leap of faith, take the leap. You'll regret the things you didn't do much more than anything you did, so you might as well try new things."

So take a chance on me, and I'll gladly do the same for you!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Began going on solo travels since 2013.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories, an avenue for advice, a listening ear, and a shoulder to cry on.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to host any guests at the moment as I don't own a place at the moment. But I will be glad to show you around Singapore!
