About Me

CURRENT MISSION

live high, live mighty, live righteously

ABOUT ME

i laugh loud and talk alot and i hope to find my peace someday. i love new adventures but i'm a sentimental fool. i'm also a sucker for a good story, i'd love to hear yours and share mine. some friends tell me i'm weird but i really don't have a sense of 'normal' :D

most of my time is spent working and daydreaming - some years ago after getting my degree i juggled three jobs (i used to produce prime time tv dramas AND serve awesome coffee at the pigeonhole). right now, though, i'd rather see where the wind takes me.. hopefully something i can do to be a productive member of society.

also, i'm more 'siesta' than 'fiesta' and i prefer staring at the sky than big bright city lights. but if i get my head into doing something, i'd drop everything and run with it.

PHILOSOPHY

je ne regrette rien
no regrets, they don't work

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

met up with some amazing people in singapore - at CS meetings or for random coffees. CS has given me fast friends, fleeting moments but also a few of the most meaningful friendships I've ever had.

Interests

i find comfort in chaos, in food and in everything hot and spicy, gooey and rich. i'm pretty much game for anything. i will never publicly admit that i'm scared of the unknown and the dark, but i must say i like the shivers it gives me. i'm also horribly addicted to a few things, like watching the sky change colour, film photography (my deviantart gallery), images and words, good music, good food and good company. SHOW ME YOURS, I'LL SHOW YOU MINE :D

One Amazing Thing I've Done

enjoying god's green earth, the night sky lying down on kuta beach, falling into rapids while white water rafting in the nepal winter. great ocean road, western australia - searing sun and sand but ice cold water... brrr. unexpected glowing plankton at the gili islands. sunset on my right, stars coming out on my left - standing in the centre of the universe at koh rong samloem... standing in my pyjamas at the sacre coeur at 3 am in the middle of winter..

i think i've yet to really live life so i really hope to fill this part the most.
