About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live life well, meet cool people and find inspirations

ABOUT ME

i'm wabi sabi, not perfect, not neat...just everything kinda average, with lots of ideas, see the world in colors and textures and dream of becoming better as a designer

been focusing on art while keeping the day job...
definitely more mellow but know how to have fun

likes creative types and being inspired as well as inspiring other people...

i've lived in different cultures so i find it interesting to be in new environment and meeting new people from scratch

PHILOSOPHY

go forward, stick to your goals, yield when you hit rocks, and follow when the path is clear

(ok, those are wing tsun philosophies - my secret cheat sheet)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i meet people through friends and cs events. i like to meet ppl more organically via chance vs dedicated searches...its nice to be connected via fb and cs but nicer to live life in the present

mostly i am a last minute person and find that its impossible to find housing for long time last minute but had really lots of fun

Interests

Music, Movies & Books

unbearable lightness of being - why do i always come back to this book?
