About Me

Ambivert. Keen on music. Literature addict. Sports fan. Travelling enthusiast. Volunteering devotee. Coffeeholic. Herbivore 🌱

I have realised I'm not as spontaneous as I thought I was. Maybe an appropriate word is adaptable. Travelling offers me opportunities to meet people from all walks of life and experience various things that I wouldn't otherwise do. Travelling has encouraged me to go out of my comfort zone and live as wholeheartedly and adventurously (and perhaps dangerously) as possible. And these precious experiences have strengthened my adaptability.

Music, Movies, and Books

Boost myself up everyday with ROCK! A big fan of Avril Lavigne, Simple Plan and Green Day. Basically, ROCK FOR LIFE!

Just discovered how much i'm into Jason Mraz music, especially when I'm down.

Books: Dedicated my childhood to Harry Potter, Peter Pan and other unreal - but - should - be - real stories. Spending lots of my time enjoying Haruki Murakami books at the moment, along with travel diary books and other kinds which can heal my heart and soul.

Movies: Harry Potter, Spiderman and Sherlock are the best!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- turning vegan

- living 1 year overseas in Japan (Ahhh, FREEDOM :D)

- solo travelling

- hiking in Busan, South Korea with randomly met local people

- almost getting lost in Busan then being rescued by a Korean lady (so thankful I was to her)

- driving motorbike in Laos, then getting stopped by the cops ( don't know if this one is amazing or not but it is definitely unforgettable, isn't it?)

- volunteering in CPOC, Cambodia

- spending one month in Indonesia and Mekong Delta, Vietnam.

-motorbiking in Bali and Chiangmai, which I hadn't thought I would.

-meeting up with great people when travelling and even teaming up with them travelling here and there

Teach, Learn, Share

Love hearing about people's travelling stories, about places i haven't set my feet on, etc and sharing my own travel stories.

I can meet up and show you around, but should be on weekends or on my work-holidays/days-off.

In terms of food, I can show you vegan places or vegan-friendly as I am vegan. But also we can still check non-veg places out if you want, of course there will be only you eating there.
