About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an accountant who is actually a baker!

Wow, kinda hard to describe myself. I hate routines, i like to wake up everyday and ask myself, what do I want to do today and do it. I like to always challenge myself by doing new things and learning from everything. I am those kind of persons who doesn't care if they win or lose, because the important part is the game itself. I love talking with people as I think that is the only way to understand life itself, by seeking to understand all the 7 billion universes inside this planet. I like watching all the simple things in life that make life worth enjoying.

PHILOSOPHY

"Human life a comedy show which is being broadcast to some outer civilization"
"You will never be younger than you are at this moment"
"you can buy an expensive car, or a cheap car and many roasted chickens"
"History is not to be told, its to be done"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting and surfing! (Currently only surfing)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Once in Bali
Twice on Brisbane
Once in Sydney (maybe, floorsurfing is a better word haha)
Meet-Ups in Kuala Lumpur, Bandung and Medan
Once in Yogjakarta
Once in Pematang Siantar

I have hosted several people from France, Germany, and South America, in my previous homes in Cairns and Townsville

What can I say... Its AWESOME! It incredibly nice to learn new things from local people instead of learning through wikivoyage or lonely planet. Im not sure if everything people told me was true, but it was really interesting and i will never forget!
