I am a drag queen and also I am a painter. I like travelling while doing art and performances.

What was the last trip you took and what did you think?
The last trip I had was in Taipei, Taiwan. I was hired to perform during the Gay Pride Celebration, surprisingly, Kim Chi and Aja is on the same stage where I performed. Also, last Feb. 2020, I went to perform for Gay Pride Celebration in Yangon, Myanmar. It was an amazing experience to meet so many sisters and brothers in our tribe from different parts of the globe.

If you could be transported to one day/place in time, what would it be and why?
I wish to explore Spain, like in Madrid and Barcelona. It is full of art.

Location where you have been the most drunk in your life? Do you remember everything you did?
Halong Bay, on a cruise, Vietnam. I passed out cause it was my birthday.

Do you prefer solo travel or with someone else? And why?
I prefer solo travel cause I hate waiting and I want to go where I want to.

I tasted different kinds of Thai food in Thailand. I lived there for 15 years and their food is so tasty and lots of choices.

What's been the weirdest thing you've seen when traveling and explain it to us.
The weirdest thing I saw when travelling is the different religion of people have, cause I was taught there’s only one God, but every country has different God. So I stop believing, so what I become is to believe in Universe energy.

Dorm or private room? Why?
Private room cause I like to sleep good without being disturb.

Do you call yourself a traveller or a tourist? Explain us why.
Traveller because I always prefer to experience local life.

Would you rather see a lot of places or get to know one really well?

Friendship and fun.
