Very simple guy I am. However, my life story ain't that simple. Was born in the States, raised in France and partly in Malaysia. Did my postgraduate studies in Melbourne and now i'm living and working in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I used to blog, a workaholic than a shopaholic... I know how to have FUN and have a balanced work & life. Tho... work these days can be hectic especially being in one of the world leading Advertising Agency.
I treasure my family, my friends and of course... my WORK! *workaholic* *cough*.
Sharing Experiences - Sharing is Believing!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Have had some of the best experiences with CouchSurfers visiting Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne. I'd treasure all these experiences and would like to share it with more and more people visiting my country, my home - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Previously in Melbourne, I hosted a couple of CS'ers... namely from Germany, Philippines, Canada, China, Indonesia and a few other places...
So if you do come to Kuala Lumpur and you do hit me up either to stay at my place or just to ask me to bring you around... be sure that you will get an awesome local experience!
Jazz, R&B and comedies are what i'm in for! Hardly go for events these days (concerts that is!). If it's a show / comedy... ask me and i'll be there! I love attending board game sessions playing Monopoly Empire, Politiko, Cards Against Humanity and many more!
To top all that... FOOD is what i really love. Tho my body doesn't really show it... I bet you that you will love all the food places that i'll bring you to. I cook an awesome western and local meal. Most people say my Nasi Lemak (local dish) is the bomb! When I have free time, i gym and swim.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music - Depends on what I feel like listening to, but if you need to know... I listen to Ed Sheeran, Years & Years, Hurts, A Great Big World, RyanDan, Adele, Shayne Ward, Sleeping At Last and many more...
Movies - Action movies with heaps of actions, guns blazing, sci-fi and all those technical bullshit. Not into lovey dovey stuff...
Books - Mostly magazines... not so much of a bookworm actually.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the cool perks of working in a Radio Station is that you get to travel and meet heaps of celebs! I was in Singapore for the MTV Asia Awards and got to interview International Artists such as Michelle Branch, Mariah Carey, Simple Plan, BLUE, Black Eyed Peas, Javier and many more... in Singapore!!!
Then there was Daughtry, Tokio Hotel, Wondergirls, and a whole lot of LOCAL acts here in Malaysia!
Recently... i landed on a job as a Social Specialist in one of the world's leading Advertising Agencies... Leo Burnett. Here i get to express my ideas and come up with new great ones for brands such as Samsung, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, NESTLÉ just to name a few.
Teach, Learn, Share
My local Malaysian friends say that my Nasi Lemak is da bomb! Its all about how you make the sambal and the rice. I could teach you that...
I learnt french in high school for 6 years during my stay in Paris, France. Give me a few days with a French guy and i'l be speaking fluent French in no time! Wanna learn? hit me up...
I'm all about sharing experiences! I really wanna share with you all the good local food spots that we have and not get trapped at those tourist spots charging you really expensive for meals that probably costs a fraction of what you might have to pay.
