About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I'm a Museum-Nerd with an odd mix of real fun.

I came back to Indonesia on August 2010, was moving around in some parts of Indonesia and currently residing in Bali, hopefully for as long as I can hehe

I was an international student in a U.S master program hoping to get the most out of my stay in US by joining CS. Through CS I have met new friends and even BEST friends.

I graduated in May 2010 and then after that I traveled to a few places in Asia, either for pleasure or just for a temp (fun) work.

I love experiencing new things as long as it not criminal or would not get me killed.

I think a cold shower right after a hot bubble bath is a gift of life.

I'm quite honest, blunt and can be RUDE-ly honest.

I think I'm pretty much easy going but half of the time I'm not.

PHILOSOPHY

"When you didn't learnt anything today, be grateful that you didn't die" (Buddha)

Thinking of existentialism, why am I a Fox? not a horse? How could a Fox be happy without -forgive the expression- a chicken in his teeth? [George C as Mr. Fox, in The Fantastic Mr. Fox]

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am an avid guide for Philadelphia, and for areas with archaeological sites in Java, Bali and Jambi of Sumatera in Indonesia. I can definitely show you around.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first CS hosting experience was one French CSer + one U.S CSer + a homeless girl whom we met on the way back from a night out. It was a cold night between fall and winter and small rains falling throughout the evening. So we took the homeless girl in and stayed over at my place.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Got paid to join a dig on the site where they found the first remains of Homo erectus (the missing link in the evolution of man) in Java.

Had a Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes reenactment moment on Eiffel tower [blushed], then the security came and said "we're going to close in 5 minutes"

Teach, Learn, Share

lets TEACH each other our different culture
and LEARN anything that should come up between us
then SHARE it with whomever who will sit and finished the proposed poison for the night! but water can do as well.
