About Me

After spending 8 years in Singapore, I decided to embark on a backpacking trip starting from July 2015. Now the big question is when am I gonna stop traveling. I still haven't found the answer to that.
I currently work online and striving for a permanent digital nomad lifestyle.

I am now conquering the world and trying to connect with as many people as I can. I always try to get off the beaten track, avoiding places that are bustling with tourist waves. So if you have any recommandations on things to do/eat/see while I am around your city, it will be greatly appreciated!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I can afford to stay in a hotel but that's not part of my traveling adventures. I'm more bond to meet locals and get to know them, their lifestyle and cultures. Everyday is a learning journey for me. How can I keep on learning new things if I don't go completely outside of my normal environnement? It's easy to just request for a free accommodation but that's not what I am looking for. I'm looking forward to experiencing locals' lifestyle. That's why I'm a traveler and not a tourist!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Lounge, electro, techno music: my playlist is a combination of styles from people I met around the world while traveling. I love adding songs from people I met so each time I hear it, it reminds me of that particular person.

Books: the Shadows of the Wind, And the mountain echoed, Ready Player One

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn how to cook local dishes, sharing my traveling experience as well as hearing about my host's, learning local cultures and traditions and a few words/ sentences in the local language I am traveling to.
I can cook a nice meal accompanied with a nice glass of wine.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I’d like to share a few jokes but honestly I don’t remember any.
Other than that, I am a great cook so I can make a delicious meal for you and chat with a nice drink.
