My self-summary
A world traveler, made in Indonesia, educated in Singapore, lost in USA and stranded on this weird, awesome land called Japan.

My 7th year in Japan but I still see/meet many new awesome things/people that make me fall in love with this country all over again.

I like to laugh, sometimes at the inappropriate times, and also to make lame jokes~ If you like bad jokes, maybe you haven't heard really bad ones yet :D

What I’m doing with my life
If life gives me a lemon, I will make a highball!
Currently managing a hostel for backpackers in Tokyo~
My hope is to popularise backpacking in Japan and get more cities in Japan to be noticed by everyone in the world!

Going on 1 day hikes around Tokyo and then drinking with friends or just drinking with strangers I meet in Izakayas.
Basically enjoying life and all that nature can offer.

Finding the balance:
"I must learn to love the fool in me-- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility and dignity but for my fool." - Theodore I. Rubin, MD
"Why so serioussss?" - The Joker (Heath Ledger; The Dark Knight)

Looking for that special someone who will laugh at my lame jokes and counter-joke me, accompany me drinking, eating, dancing to the tunes of lives and sometimes just to be there together without doing anything or saying anything

Eating spicy food!
Associating people with weird/small things that I think are interesting about them
Getting grandpas in 飲み屋 to treat me

Food: Sweet and spicy, I am from Indonesia, and we like our food sweet and spicy there. But I am at the extreme end of the spicyness spectrum, I can't live without spice. Don't worry, Indonesian separates the spicy sauce from the dishes ;) And I eat basically everything except for bugs & balut.
The six things I could never do without
Humour
Spices (I don't use much salt when cooking, but I like using everything else)
A good story
A friend to share happy moments over a glass of beer
Something interesting
A towel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's the next book/movies to enjoy
Why don't they make movies as good as the 90s HK movies
If tomorrow will be sunny
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner with friends, walk around Tokyo to find something interesting, Karaoke, drinking in a neighborhood bar and just enjoy talking with new & old nakama
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me, I will probably tell you after a few glasses of beer(shochu maybe, recently reduced beer consumption)
You should message me if
You are witty, and likes to banter over serious and stupid stuffs.

Takes life seriously enough to have a healthy long laughter filled days.

Knows how to enjoy alcohol, food and a good company.

I like cooking and eating and drinking, so it is better if you like eating and drinking, I prefer someone who is huggable and knows how to enjoy food and be pampered.

You feel like a quick coffee or alcohol date, or hiking somewhere near Tokyo during the weekend, or there is that new restaurant you want to go to but has noone to go with.
Let's just make it a relaxing and comfortable first date with no pressure.

If you are looking for someone to chat with, have something happy you want to share(I always welcome good news :))

If you like Stephen Chow or 90s HK movies, it is a plus
