About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Making more adventuresome solo travels : Summer Trip 2015 to Berlin - Florence - Perugia -Tuscany ... etc, before reaching back home in Singapore around mid September.

ABOUT ME

I'm a Singapore native and I travel to photograph, write about, and capture the fragile moments of everyday life, as witnessed in my travels.

I am currently working in a technology startup.

A photography hobbyist, I enjoy going to unknown places in Singapore to capture the morning light and would like to take fellow like-minded travel enthusiasts to experience this too!

PHILOSOPHY

To live with integrity and intensity.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am free to meet up for a coffee most days for a little bit; or after work hours in the city area near the Singapore River. Would love to meet all young, young at heart, and adventurous people!

Have made a walking map for those who like to explore old buildings / take a long walk by our Marina Bay waterfront area:

Here is the map below:

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Try to attend a CS Weekly meeting wherever I travel to. Made it eventually to 2 CS Meetings in Marseille.

Might make surprise appearances at house parties but usually now am enthusiastic about photowalks.I like to meet people for a day where I bring them to my 'hidden places' in Singapore, usually customized to coincide with their interests, so far there aren't any huge disappointments. This is done once or twice a month, usually! =)

Interests

Am a very avid reader, often spotted sipping a morning coffee with my nose in a book in the city area where I work.

Curating a publication with lots of stories of travel and anything that I am curious about:
