About Me


"Travel, Meet Friends Around the World and Try Everything while I am Still Young!"


There are two words to describe myself - Adventurer and Connector (AC~=Active).

To briefly elaborate and detail abut me, I'm a friendly, inquisitive and adventurous individual who is excited to meet people from all walks of life and around the world. I like to travel, my dream is to travel every single corner of the world before I'm 30. PEACE!


I would like to state "A journey of a million miles starts with a single step!" in Couch Surfing.

For life, I would like to say "Never give up, PEACE man!" and "Always be grateful and thankful to what you have and people who helped us!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For hosting:
I will host if my time and condition suit with the surfers.

For surfing:
I will participate all the activities organized by the host like visiting interesting places, cooking and etc. and share my experience and stories to make the time together memorable. :d

1. I went to Coventry, UK and meet my first host, Eva. My friends and I stayed at her house for 3 days and had memorable experience of surfing. First day, when I meet Eva, she is a cheerful and nice host. She always know what to do and have fun~ My friend and I walked around Coventry in the morning and afternoon and have dinner with Eva with her colleague, Lee, Tracy, Andy and Ramji. We had long chat and sharing of our stories and the feeling was awesome~(Unfortunate the Godiva Festival was canceled else we will get crazy that whole night!) Second day, Coventry is beautiful and nice weather...Long walk outside Coventry. Third day, Amazing day - Olympic Torch Relay at War Memorial Park, Coventry. My first touch of the torch happened there~ And I bring the souvenir back for Eva. Deeply and from the bottom of my heart, thanks to Eva for her hospitality, time and sharing of her life stories! My first best host forever~ haha


Still newbie in this cool website - Couch Surfing.

Going to plan my first Europe trip in this coming July (booked air ticket) and hope that I can find some awesome hosts and meet them in Europe countries I visit for making new friends, culture and stories sharing ~ :)


Everything interests me especially sport, traveling and adventure. It gives me the feeling of refresh and reborn after doing an exercise and long trip.

Particularly in traveling, learning from every journey and discovering different culture and new stuffs around the world make me feel inspiring and exciting. I would like to make more friends around the globe, enjoy and share foods, stories and culture with them.
