About Me


Eat Pray Love. Restarting my travel engine post Covid. Planning to travel for +/- 1 week every month in 2023.


Workaholic with the aim of being able to retire at 40. When I'm working I would work 24/7, taking back to back shifts so that I could have at least a few days off every month travelling to reset. I don't have many friends that's why I would mostly do solo travels whenever I don't travel with my family. I like meeting new people although I'm not very good at staying in touch.


I think it's important for people to know that I’m a practicing muslim girl, and yes I also wear those cloths muslim women put on their heads

That’s Bob Marley, not my boyfriend (I wish!) on my profile pic and no, he’s not real, that’s a wax figure of him. I just find it amusing that I need to explain this to people, ha!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I mainly hosted in the past and only ever surfed in Taiwan and South Korea


I've met many amazing people through couchsurfing which strengthened my faith in humanity and helped me to continue to keep on believing that people are inherently nice despite my other bad experiences with people in my own life 🥲😅. It's fun getting to know all these different people and sharing our unique life stories together

Music, Movies, and Books

I like comedy movies, I don’t really listen to music that much except for when I’m driving. My freetime mostly reduced to scrolling tik toks and instagram and not very proud of it

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1.Greyhounding (bussing) across North America (including Canada) alone in 2 months and making it out alive and not broke (without travel insurance) 😅🤣

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm not a good cook but I'll try to introduce some of our traditional desserts or we could always eat out and it will be my treat 😆
