About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Prepare for the next trip.

ABOUT ME

My life is complete. Just enjoy food, traveling, and the peace.

PHILOSOPHY

Leave behind the argument, and start cooking / baking .

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have surfed quite a few couches so far , enjoyed interaction with hosts and locals , learnt about cultures and lifestyles , and made new friends .

Enjoy hosting at the moment even more than surfing .

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

West Malaysia : great CS ambiance , hung out with hosts and their friends .

Indonesia : amazed by their accepting attitude toward nature, life, foreign cultures and different religions.

Australia : stayed with nice and hospitable hosts .

My expectations with couch surfers are:

1, prepare your own food, unless I invite you to join and share a meal;
2, proactively write a reference upon departure;
3, stay in touch.

I feel delighted about the fact that over 90% of couch surfers follow the basic rules of Couchsurfing, and have made my hosting life beautiful and enjoyable.
