About Me

I am an MD/Public Health professional who is always, apart from taking care of community health problems, looking for the meaning of life through exploring new things: places, souls, culture, and stories. I have been to a few foreign states and I never feel that I have had enough. For now, I am staying at home and wish everyone here is safe. We can overcome this pandemic together!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I do not earn much from my work and all my travel plans are on budget, plus I travel to meet new people from whom I get inspired and motivated to wander more. I wish we can share our travel passion and moments together. I plan to be a host one day once I get settled down and the law that prohibits foreigners to stay at private homes in Myanmar is lifted.


I enjoy getting to know fellow travellers when I do solo trips which I believe is the time when most unforgettable memories and friendship are forged. I do not mind calling my name wrong or forgetting it as, to me, it is the activity we do together that I treasure more. I hope you will feel the same.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hiked Trolltunga in Odda, Norway and it was my best adventure so far!

Teach, Learn, Share

I always wonder why people hate each other so much to get into wars. Why can we not appreciate our individual differences? Most of us, however, tend to like and choose an item different from the rest of the display when we shop, don't we?

Burmese culture
Politics? (everything we talk about is somehow related to it, isn't it?)
