About Me


Enjoy life to the fullest. I have decided to only live once :-)


I am easy going, laid back, flexible and I don't sweat the small stuff. Love my family and friends. I am very interested in meeting people from different cultures. Having worked hard for a successful career in finance, I am currently focused on sorting out life priorities and living up my dreams! Love travelling, cooking, cricket, sketching, reading specially history, mystery, philosophy and economics, listening to music and watching movies, yoga and massage. Can be fun - sometimes!


- Live like its your last day, dream like you will live forever
- Dont sweat the small stuff
- Those you dont know history are condemned to repeat its mistake, those who do will make new mistakes
- be smart about life. You only live once

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Happy to be hosting visiting csurfers in my city (I read profiles and look for interesting, open, adventurous people who have some thing to share and add to my experiences). I have hosted regularly in Singapore - and the references tell most of the story. I travel often and look to hook up with couchsurfers in other countries.


Have met many lovely people come and stay with us and interacting with them has been very enriching and enlightening. I have been hosted in many countries, and travel has never been better before!


Travelling (target 50 countries), reading (history, comics, philosophy), racket sports (squash, badminton), painting (charcoal, ink), listening to music, and watching lots and lots of movies :-), mind bending puzzles and lame jokes (or the other way around, I can't remember now), meeting people, living life (yes, that one is quite important!)
