About Me

Mostly solo traveler, ambassador of improvised adventures instead of tight schedules/plans. Living life in one schedule...Cooking lover, Not good with small talking... Love travelling around. Non smoker, casual drinker. Respectful and quiet at times. Definitely interested in being immersed in different cultures, trying for the 5th time to grow food in a highly challenging environment :).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Just to give back what I've received...most people here will understand this concept....
I became a member in 2016 but I'm officially using the app since this year because I was either distracted or lived too far from the city center...
Side note: my age is 34, due to a typo, shows 35...if that even matter hehe

Music, Movies, and Books

Electronic, metal, Psy trance, Blues, HANDPANS and low-fi beats, jazz, salsa, r&b, classical, Sci-Fi, History books, Spiritual, etc...

- Swimming with whale sharks
- Visiting The great wall of China
- Waterfalls zip-lines
- Hitch-hiking in New Zealand (met amazing people along the way)
- Engage with ad-hoc charity events which I won't detail because I'm not looking for followers by claiming I'm a devoted altruist hehe
