Hi! I live in Singapore and work in Banking. I lived in other countries too - I am originally from the Philippines, and apart from Singapore, I've lived in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Dubai, and Malaysia. I love traveling (81 countries and counting!!!) and have recently discovered airbnb and have been using it in select countries I travel to - including Australia and Italy. I love meeting the super hospitable hosts, having local recommendations on food, and just coming home to a warm atmosphere. Not to mention the great value in staying in really nice accommodations.
I am a no-frills, efficient traveler. I need my room to be clean, functional, and quiet. Other than that, I am very low maintenance and do not really require much of my hosts :) And I hate smoking, so hosts, please be honest in disclosing if your home is non-smoking. I had a recent experience where the host used semantics to mislead me into thinking her home is non-smoking when it fact isn't. There any many people who do not mind smoke, unfortunately, I do :)
