About Me


stay alive


I was born in Taipei 1990, I moved to Norway at the age of 6 and have been living here ever since. Move around a couple of times before eventually setting down in Oslo. I am currently a student at the University of Oslo.


Existentialism, I guess.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope I could show people around Oslo and I'd like to have the same experience when I am overseas.


I was out one weekend and after a long night of drinking. I was desperate for a place to crash due to public transport ceased to be operational at the time and I couldn't afford a taxi. A stranger I met earlier offered me her couch. She told me when she was traveling she went couchsurfing, I had no idea what "couchsurfing" was and she explained to me the concept and I loved it, thus I signed up.


listening to music, watching movies, reading books, having discussions with my friends which often turn into arguments, talk about love, tragedy, happiness and pretty much anything of an existentialist nature, or just some silly shit. Recently I have picked up the hobby of street photography, However I haven't got the courage to actually get close to strangers :(.

Music, Movies, and Books

A lot of different stuff but to name a few movies and books I like. The movie I always come back to is Lost in Translation, not very original I know but I simply LOVE the movie. My favorite movie atm has to be Tokyo Story. My favorite book is probably On The Road, which is super mainstream hipster I guess, but I can't help but be fascinated by the Beatnik lifestyle.
When it comes to music I can never decide what I like tbh.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I tasted the color purple in Amsterdam. I got completely lost in a small village in France where nobody could speak English and was saved by a super cool swede and two awesome Brazilians.
