About Me


to eat, dance, learn... across the world.


Better experienced than read about! ;)


Every moment counts - so seize the day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can host every once in a while, meet up couchsurfers visiting my part of the world, swap stories and experiences, and show them a good time. :)


I was introduced to the couchsurfing concept a couple of years ago - and i've discovered that it's really cool and convenient! i think its a great way to get a real feel of the place we're travelling to!
My friends and I travelled to Turkey in September 2009 and were really blown away by the generosity of our host Ali in Istanbul.
I believe the world would be a friendlier and more peaceful, and tolerant place if everyone was a couchsurfer!


Music, dance, books, people, places, food (love to cook as well!). Cooking and dancing are therapeutic for me! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

The Little Prince, The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, Persepolis, Haroun and the Sea of Stories...
Pulp Fiction, Midnight Express, In the Mood for Love, ChungKing Express
The Beatles, Steely Dan, Jason Mraz, Bruno Mars

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

visiting Cappadocia in Turkey - that was one surreal place! and then doing reverse bungee at Clarke Quay, Singapore - what a rush!!!
Among my culinary exploits — eating crocodile and kangaroo in Australia, interviewing chef Peter Gilmore for my magazine.
