About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Indonesia

ABOUT ME

I am a fun guy, I like to go crazy on occasion, and I am an itchy footed lover of life and fellow humans.

I speak few languages, I love people with extreme laugh and people who can hold a conversation. I love meeting new people that know more about life than me.

I like to learn from people. 'Respect' is the keyword, I like diversity, I like people from all sorts of life ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Hope will get you through the worst of times, Love will mend your wounds, and you get better with age.

Smile, because life is beautiful..!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Happy to meet traveler for coffee when I'm not too busy with school.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I received the warmest and most hospitable couchsurfing experience from the Hui people in central China. They fed me like there were no food tomorrow, and tucked me to bed as I was their 5-year-old son!

Interests

Architecture, the world, the universe, the animal kingdom, fellow human being.

Music, Movies & Books

I read non-fiction most of the time.'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' by John Berrent affected me so much in so many ways. And as for 4 Sept 2013, 'Mountain Beyond Mountains' by Tracey Kidder is the best read so far. I have broad taste in music, always eager to swap music with fellow travelers.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Diving in New Caledonia, hiking the Annapurna, Sunset and Sunrise in Bagan, too many to list here ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play gamelan, how to read manga, graphic novels, modern philosophy and architecture.

I can also teach you how to recite this. It talks about how beautiful the day is when the rain comes falling down.
