About Me

CURRENT MISSION

work & study hard, travel harder...

ABOUT ME

Me? I'm a rapid backpacker wannabe, disguised as a postgraduate student, whom unable to finish my master degree on time because too busy traveling and savor the culinary delights of the region.
Mmm... I'm also an internet addict, loves cat, and wearing tooth braces.
-latest revision- Finally, I finished my study and no more tooth braces, yeehaw! :)

When you're considering me as your guest, here's some clues:
1. I don't eat pork
2. I don't smoke
3. I always take a bath everyday (I'll keep your bathroom as clean as before I use it)
4. I can't cook well (but in case you're curious with my local delicacies, I might bring you a sachet of Indonesian instant seasoning, so I can make a quick stir fry something for you)
5. If you want something from me, please ask, because I can't read your mind.

Note: Most of the time, I travel with my husband Ary. Don't worry, I'll state on my couchrequest whether we will surf together or it's just me alone. :)

PHILOSOPHY

work hard, travel harder. ;)
