About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see as much of the world as time allows and before I become a pauper!

ABOUT ME

Always a happy and a joyful person. I can be pretty quiet at times with strangers but once I open up, I can be a pleasure to be with and witty too. Makes people laugh and like to laugh myself silly!
Love travelling and always on the lookout for a partner to travel. I became a diabetic in 2013 and have to be very careful with what I put into my mouth!!

PHILOSOPHY

"Love and enjoy life to the fullest''. ''I am afraid of people who are nice to me but if you are bad to me, you will get hell''. I am not afraid to give people a 'mouthful' if they step on my toes and step out of line!
''When in Rome, do as the Romans do''. I believe in ''Give & Take'', and "what you Give, you will Receive Manifolds''. I will give references ''Without Fear or Favour'' and will always ''Tell the Truth, The Whole Truth, Nothing But The Truth, so help me God!''

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been informed about CS Org. some time ago but did not join for fear of being taken advantage of and dislike freeloaders! I became a member in 2012 as I was travelling with a Cser to the UK.
I work part-time therefore have lots of time on my hands to do what I love most ...... travelling and exploring countries that take my fancy.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My husband Charles is a member of an International Service Org. and as such, we have hosted many people coming from all over the world in our humble home since 1980's. The longest we hosted was a Japanese student exchange for 3 months. My first surfing experience with CS was when I went to the UK in April 2012. It has been a very fantastic experience staying with many CSers, eating their local and ethnic food, sleeping on floors, sofas and even having a room to myself. The short time spent with them was memorable and I learnt a lot including weighing rice for each person to be cooked.

Interests

Doing volunteer community service work for the poor, under-priviledged, less fortunate and physically challenged people. As and when I can afford, I will do charity work and donate to worthy causes.
Emailing and exchanging views on travelling; involved in drama plays and enjoying life to the fullest by visiting and travelling to places ''that is off the beaten track'' to as many countries as I can possibly go.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love listening to the ''Oldies'' and songs that have sentimental meanings. Occassionaly, I would listen to ''Rock and Rolls''. I like reading inspirational books and into ''Fong Shui''.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Nearly died of fright while flying in a Cessna plane around
the Grand Canyons in the US in 1987.
2. Climbing the highest mountain in S. E. Asia ie, Mt. Kinabalu 4
times in 1984, 1986, 1989, 1991 and surviving a huge
thunderstorm up in the mountain.
3. Travelling to Kashmir and being escorted and protected by
the Kashmir police all the way while sight-seeing because of
their war.
4. Climbing two mountains in China recently: the Lushan and
Huangshan mountain in November 2011! I lost 5 kilos
travelling for 18 days around this area.
5. Dolphin chasing on Bali Island in 2010.
6. Learning how to ski on Mt. Sorak in Korea in below minus
degrees - Dec 2012.

Teach, Learn, Share

Friends have called me up to seek advice on travelling to certain places. Well, being a somewhat well heeled traveller, I am able to give my advice and opinion.
I can share and teach how to cook a favourite Malaysian dish or two.
