Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing, activities.


I had a great couchsurfing experience in Iceland and Denmark. Both of my hosts were very kind to me. Looking forward to my first hosting experience in January.

Currently living in Kazakhstan.
Started Long Table serving Indonesian food and having a blast having guest from local Kazakhstan to visiting travellers and in long term want to make a group "Around the world through food" where people meet and learn and try meals from diffefent country. One can host and cook, or host and let other guest cook in their kitchen or simply go to restaurant together and try food from different country.


mindful living, books, movies, food, culture, conversation, spirituality.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Learning other culture is always an amazing thing for me. Traditional market is my favourite place everytime I travel. that is where I can see how people live, what they wear, what they eat daily.

Watching Sigur Ros concert live in Reykjavick, Iceland. It's an incredible amazing experience and Iceland is such a unique country which rare and raw beauty you will never find in another country. Period. I saw my first snow here :) so beautiful that I promise my self to visit Iceland in another season. I came again on summer and it is still as beautiful as the 1st time.

Snorkeling at Maratua Island, East Kalimantan. It was a wonderful and scary experience at the same time. Beautiful because I saw hundreds of different kind of fish and plant there, scary because it was more than 30 m deep while I can not swim :)

Walking down Paris because it's such a lovely city, especially when I found some places that I saw in my favorite movie (Shakespeare book company-Before Sunrise, Montmarte-Amelie).

Hiking at Dolomite de brenta and Madona Dicampligio, the experience was almost undescribeable. Amazingly beautiful view, would love to go there and hike again.

Living in Kazakhstan as my 1st 4 season country to live
