About Me


Find what am I supposed to be doing here since I don't think working in a High tech company is IT... (no pun originally intended but hey, turned out cool :P)


A few things I realized in the last year from people telling me straight out...
1. I am a master of word plays and bad jokes that still makes everyone laugh (though usually I have to gauge a new person's sense of humor before I fully unleash my humor wrath)
2. I am the best listener
3. I develop really deep friendships very fast and somehow (I still haven't figured this part out yet) people seem to trust me with their deepest secrets in no time. I mean stuff they haven't told their best friends that they tell me after knowing me 2 weeks...

Besides those things that I got to know about myself from other people, I am quite knowledgeable in a lot of things since I am kind of a hobby collector...
I had many many hobbies through the years and I learnt stuff from each one of them.


work to live, don't live to work.
People/Relationships are what makes us happy.
I rather be with the right person in hell then alone in heaven.

For that reason (and some others) I am not much of a sight seer. I would rather meet an interesting person and talk over coffee at some place than be alone in the most amazing places in the world. I like human connection, nice looking views/places don't do it for me as much.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Up till now I just hosted people, still didn't try surfing. Seems kinda scary.


I hosted Swiss people, Chinese people, Japanese people and Russian people. For some strange reason I connected most with the Chinese....


To many to detail. I'm kind of interested in anything to a degree, my mind is open to anything.
But the main things I've been interested in so far were Music (love Blues but lots of other stuff too), Playing the Music (Mainly guitar & drums, have some experience in keyboards/piano/harmonica, Languages (currently actively learning Japanese), was a Magician at some point, a Balloon Artist at some point, used to draw, write short stories, recently also started dabbling with Film making/Editing and of course photography!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the inspiring/motivating things that happened to me in life is that for 1 day, I was totally blind.
That was after years of eye problems, suddenly over one weekend, all my sight was gone.
I went through an eye operation the next day and they managed to restore some of the vision.
I don't see like I used to, I have poor vision now, but I still can see!
I can tell you a lot about everything that this made me think about...
