About Me


I'm a Filipina living in Malaysia with my husband. I enjoy meeting new people and since I work freelance, I would be happy to show people around if I have time.


Life is way too short to worry about little things. Live with no regrets, sing out loud, dance like there's not tomorrow, make friends, be positive.

We would like to host people from around the world, but please note we can only have guests Fridays to Mondays and a maximum of 3 days. Thanks!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to meet people coming to Malaysia and meet people living in other cities when I travel. Trying to do more hosting, and surfing as well.


I hosted a couple from Seattle and a British guy from Nice. I first hosted a girl from the US in Manila, and emergency hosted someone from Estonia. I met some awesome people from Amsterdam. It seems I've been partying with CS Manila people since the beginning of 2010...


I'm outdoorsy in the sense that I like to get drunk on patios...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lots, but too many to say! Worked in the big city, Sunrise at Angkor Wat, staying at an Eco-resort in Sapa, Vietnam, doing farm/gardening work in Spain and Italy, walking around Pompeii, being abandoned at the airport in Prague (and stealing advertising pop-ups for revenge!), eating Cha-ca fish in Hanoi, my last night in Barcelona when I got drunk and smoked cigars...
