About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an out-going and easy-going person. I really like traveling a lot and meeting different people, especially those who are same with me, like meeting new friends.

I like traveling a lot and I believe learning through experiencing is the most effective and memorable way to know about not only the culture and histories of different countries but also myself. People save money to buy bags, clothes, blah blah. I save money to travel and to taste all the food around the world. Traveling enriches my life and I am sure I would not be me today if I didn't love traveling. :)

PHILOSOPHY

Be yourself! Do whatever you like and make yourself happy. Cause life is just too short!

Keep trying new things. Get out from your comfort zone. At the end of the day, what have you got to lose?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Definitely enjoying the experience CS gave me. Have met a lotta nice and incredible ppl which can hardly be met in a hostel or hotel. We had lotta fun, cooking, talking about different cultures, joking. It's so great! And am still keeping contact with some of the CSers!

Interests

Dancing is definitely my first interest. I have been dancing for 5 years and I just LOVE it!!! Hip Hop and Jazz are what I usually dance. After dancing like for 3 hours, my god, just feel so good despite the fact that I do not dance very well!!

Traveling around the world. I believe this is the most effective way to flourish your life. I mean traveling is not only like sightseeing and take pictures, but meeting new friends and really experience the culture of the place you are traveling to. If you just go there and shop, take pictures but you know nothing about the people and culture there, just don't go traveling, you are wasting time... Plus, you can always download the photos from google!

Taking picture is also one of my interests. I think I have a special sense for pictures. haha~

Watching movie: I like it a lot, especially with Western movie. Personally I don't really like Hong Kong movies which is a pity because we used to have a lot of nice movies.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like reading but I do prefer something more visual, like movies. Probably because I am SUCH a SLOW reader...

Music:
Different kinda music!!!
Singer: I don't really care as long as the music is good.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bungy jumping in Nervis, New Zealand.

Sky diving in Cairns, Australia.

In 2011, I have decided to quit my job and go to France just to learn french. All my friends were shocked and felt very puzzled. But I mean since I am single, I do not have any burden now, why don't I just go and do something I really wanna do? You can work for 40+ years and when you are 60 and you realize that you haven't really lived before, that would be such a pity!

Scuba diving in Malta. This was really amazing because I cannot swim.... Wohoo but I have done scuba diving, how crazy was tht?!

Another one is... well, I swear I will never ever do that again!! I lined up for 4 hours just to go in the France President's House --> Palais l'Elysees. Technically was like 4 hours outside and 2 hours inside... I was totally paralysed tht nite.

I remembered one nite, I was having dance practice and since it was very close to our performance, so I danced from 7pm to 5am in the morning....
