About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Promote CS to my friends and family ;-)

ABOUT ME

I am a medical student, currently studying in Brighton-Sussex Medical School, England. I have been in Brighton since September 2010. Have spent almost all my life before this in Malaysia, a lovely country. I am an ultra-talkative person (beware - I warn you first :p) and I am always open and looking forward to meet new people around the world.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have surfed just once, and seriously hoping to host in the near future.

Would definitely love meeting up with other CSers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed only once so far, quite a shame. But it's overall a great experience.

Interests

Music (jazz, rock, classics)
Sports (darts, badminton, football, taekwondo)
Travel
Politics
History
Karaoke singing :p

Music, Movies & Books

I am not an expert at all in music but certainly love jazz (especially bossa nova), some rocks and certainly classics.

Love action movies. Love something involved with history and war as well.

Self-development books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

28th April 2011 to 1st May 2011
Stood a total of 24 hours in the space of 48 hours during the Royal Wedding in London and Queen's Day in Amsterdam. Slept 3 consecutive nights without a bed/sleeping bag on/in the Mall, Eurolines and Amsterdam main train station. Amazed by how rough I could go :)
