About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel different places/destinations, learn other cultures and experience many different things that i can not have while sitting at home!

ABOUT ME

My friends said I am a sincere person, nice, smart, open minded, very blunt/straight talking, independent, adventurous and active woman.
But sometimes i could stay still and quiet for hours in couch just read books or enjoying music from my ipod. I could be a bit shy first, but i am adapting quick.
I love to learn something new, and its always fascinating to know something that i never know before!
I can not cook Indonesian food, but if its Nasi Goreng, well haha i could made that one!

PHILOSOPHY

I believe everything happens for a reason! People change so you could learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe in lies so that you eventually will learn to trust no one but your self, and sometimes good things all fall apart, so better things can fall together.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to be a good ambassador for my country, there are lots of misunderstanding about Indonesia. When i travel i still met travelers that doubting about Indonesia situation, there are lots of nice people in Indonesia that willing to open their house and smile to welcome you regardless your nationality or what you believe or not believe!!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Before, i was hosting several "stranded" traveler that passes through my city even though they're not CS member!! and i never post any couch here before, its because i am not an active member here.
Last May 2011, i had the opportunity to travel to Paris and surf one of the CS member couch, and i enjoy the experience.. i think i will do it again some other time!

Interests

Sports (basketball) i like gym, running.. things that made me think positive and in good shape, i love readings, watching movies, traveling.
Oh, i like to discuss about cultures too, and also customs. Its a good way to learn other part of the world!

Music, Movies & Books

Movie: Romantic Comedy, comedies, action, horrors, sci-fi, cartoons or anime ^^
Pretty woman, the lord of the ring triology, Narnia, Pirates of Carribean, Mr&Mrs Smith, House on Haunted Hills, Ps. I love you, What Happen in Vegas, etc i love it all to mentions here!!
I like almost all books, love romance novels or mystery. I collect lots of Japanese comic books since i was 12. Mostly its girls story or action (collect both collections)
Love all kind of music except the heavy metal (where i am not so sure what they angry about?). Classics (Canon by Pachbel), R&B, pop, dance, jazz and country etc

One Amazing Thing I've Done

1. Jump off the highest bungee in the world-Macau Tower which is 233meters high. It was awesome, and i will do it again one day!!
2. Stand in one of platform at Zugspitze the highest part/mountain in Germany. It was -1 degree, had my nose bleed due to dryness. I play in snow like crazy for the very first time in my life. Cross boarder to Austria for Lunch. I will quote my self "oh now i know... snow just looks like fire extinguisher foam!!"

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to meet with different people that i have ever meet before, where every head had same color but with different thought and personality, sometimes it was quite surprising how some people actually also think and act the same way at home but in different certain ways (i know it's quite confusing..)
I would like to share other people about Indonesia/sharing knowledge, discuss about things that might interest other people like Indonesia cultures, beliefs, politics (maybe?)social life or customs.
I also like to hear from others too what they think about us, the Indonesian people. I want to know and learn about other cultures too also the customs.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, China, France, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates

Countries I've Lived In
