About Me

An educator
A historian
A cat lover
A floorballer
An occasionally fit person

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that to know more about the world, one should open their lives (and in this case their doors) to travelers in order to truly understand history from below.

While it is somewhat ironic that in my natural state I am an introvert and appreciate my privacy, peace and personal space, I am always intrigued to know more about your story :)T

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Anything good really
Books: Travel literature by Paul Theroux, A Fortune Teller Told Me
Movies: White Chicks

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Losing 15kg. Does that count?

Teach, Learn, Share

As an educator, I can share with you insights on Singapore (as a country and as a society).

I would like to learn your language, or anything that you can teach me about life!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A spare bedroom
Time (weekends as I work during the weekdays)
Two cats

Countries I’ve Visited

Cambodia, England, France, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Spain, Thailand, Viet Nam
