About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to open up my perspective on the world

ABOUT ME

love travelling and meeting the locals of the places i go to....to increase my knowledge/experiences which i'd use in my classroom teaching.
love the countryside and nature more than concrete jungles.
love to travel at a leisurely pace, not tour packages where one checks into a hotel late at night, checks out the next mornig and off on the road again after a rushed breakfast....which is described as "a refugee's life" in some Chinese dialects.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is what we make out of it and
Happiness comes from within one's heart!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

hosting if I can; show surfers around if I can't host; providing information within my ability if required.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A really enriching experience, for learning and sharing; to bring people of diversed cultures/religions/ races/creed together, in making this world a better place to live in :)

Interests

reading, travelling and meeting people of similar interests

Music, Movies & Books

love romantic movies, and sitcoms, prefer oldies of the 50s to the 70s, only read non-fiction or magazines.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being a mother and a teacher (collectively and respectively, either two in one or two separate entities) can bring about really enriching and fulfilling experiences :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Being a teacher by profession, I would love to do voluntary teaching after my optional retirement in 2012. I can teach English and (Additional) Mathematics up to "O" level. I love cooking and baking... This is another area I can share with my hosts and guests. I can cook Chinese and Malay dishes.
