About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn from the wise ones, To be steady as the beating drum.

ABOUT ME

Sometimes when I look at myself in the mirror I still wonder what kind of a person I really am, but one thing I can be sure of is I am an extremely lucky girl :)

I was born in Malaysia the multi cultural nation. I have been living in a very wise and sensible family which I think has made up most of my positive personalities :) I had been mainly chinese/malay educated until I went to Australia to study architecture, also where I developed my english. At the current stage I am preparing to do my master in Barcelona and hopefully after two years I will graduate and will be able to help with the permissions of many natural buildings using myself as a registered architect.

I think I only started learning the useful knowledge since I graduated from high school. Permaculture is the biggest part of the change I would say. It is definitely an essential knowledge to all human beings. As it covers almost everything, it is a very powerful tool to wisdom.

Other than that I started to develop my interests in meditation, hitch hiking, dumpster diving, and tribal philosophies.

In terms of religion I am not committed to any but I respect and learn the good philosophies :)

Random fact: I still haven't yet learnt to bike :-/

PHILOSOPHY

-To love someone/something is to realize he/she is not permanent.

-You only find your way when you get lost.

-We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.l

-The pattern of nature- it is always the right pattern to follow :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Curiosity. An Italian backpacker whom I met in Bangkok told me about this. I wish I could meet her again through couchsurfing :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm still relatively new! I did some wwoofing in Australia which is similar to couchsurfing. Other than that I was hosted by some nice people while traveling with my boyfriend. Lovely people!

I have never hosted anyone, yet.

Interests

I play the guitar, the piano, and I enjoy singing too.

Also, contributing my profession in sustainable architecture is a future life that I pursue.

Apart from that, organic gardening and meditation, and I like posting postcards too!

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm not really good in remembering names..

Music- I am more into old music like the 60's 70's and 80's. I am a big fan of the Beatles!

Movie- In some ways I think kids movies are therapeutic and put a smile on your face :) and YES Hayao Miyazaki animations!

Book- the first name that pops up 'A Pattern Language' by Christopher Alexander.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just being alive is an amazing thing ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching is caring.

-I'm not the best guitarist/pianist, but I would be really happy to share the joy of playing a musical instrument :)

-I speak mandarin, english, cantonese and malay and would love to teach anyone who is interested.

-Actually, anything! anything that I know I am more than happy to share ;D

Learning is never ending.

-Natural buildings. best way to learn it is by doing it by own hands :)

-Currently I am learning languages like Spanish/Catalan, Italian and Polish (greedy me!)

-Organic gardening and knowledge about natural medicines. such a useful tool in life! ;)

Sharing is mutual joy.

-Fact is other than spiritual things we also need physical things. I would be more than happy to share anything that I have! food, guitar, toothpaste, laptop, clothes etc :P

-And of course, the spiritual things. HA!
