About Me


Destination : People!


I was grown up all over the places in Indonesia, from the most east (Aceh) to the most west (Papua) but I have my own spot, I call it home, Bandung! I started my traveling from the age of 18 and West papua was my first destination, I stayed there for a year and continue traveling since then. I am very easy going, never try to think complicated, things are simple and I leave it that way. God created this universe by snapping His fingers.. I think I am as religious as that. I am a dream catcher! a lifetime traveler and eager to catch all opportunities. Well.. I am proud of things I have achieved so far in life.


Experience is what I got when I did not get what I want!

Being nice won't hurt you!

I never fully get dressed until I wear my smile!

If life treats you like a bitch, make sure you feel good and get paid.
