Join Couchsurfing to see Leanna’s full profile. It’s free!
I am eternally curious and open-minded about new cultures and experiences and when I'm not busy studying the life cycle of a fly, I like drawing and D.I.Y-ing the shit of of everything. A good conversation makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside and I always have paper and a pen on hand.I love meeting people, especially when the circumstances are unexpected. Good friends and good food are a match made in heaven.
Laugh at yourself.
Read more books.
Do what you love.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm currently working and travelling across America until April so my couch isn't available for now. I am however very much open to meeting people because that in itself is an adventure.
This is my first venture into the realm of Couchsurfing so I've got me fingers crossed.
I like cooking,making art,wandering around,vintage hunting, reading books, watching films,laughing my bum off to Monty Python, making mix CDs and humbly forcing them unto the palms of unsuspecting friends and acquaintances,going to gigs ,being with friends and family,drinking Guinness and tea(not simultaneously) taking naps, dancing in the rain, urban legends,folklore,mermaids,old coats, printmaking,the sound of the cello and soup.
I draw alot and i draw on everything.I feed of any form of inspiration and I'm eternally on the lookout for the next source of wonderment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The best way to experience anything unfamiliar is to completely immerse yourself in it. So leaving my home country in Malaysia to spend four months working and travelling across America.
