About Me

Hi, my name is Nicky, and I am an alcoholic - not! :-)

I haven't been active in the CS community for over 9yrs now, because life happened. However, I really miss CS and the friends I have made from this site. I am no longer living in Manila - working and living in Angeles, Pampanga for a few years now. I like having interesting and intellectual conversations over some drinks. I am an inner geek and a "retired" partyphile. I love English football, and I support Liverpool FC. I love tattoos. I am passionate about Belgian beer, wine and vodka - but not all at the same time! LOL.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hosted circa 2008 - 2010, but I am a virgin surfer :))

When I had a surfer staying with me for a few nights, I would organise a dinner or a session (drinking session, that is!) so my surfer can be acquainted with the other CSers in Manila etc.
