About Me


...maybe we're just wiser now and been around the block so many times that we don't notice that we're all just perfect strangers as long as we ignore that we all begin as strangers just before we find we really aren't strangers anymore." (T. Waits)


I'm exactly as I look.
Sometimes even too clear and transparent.
Sometimes happy, smiling, outgoing and full of energy, sometimes sad, nostalgic, silent and pensive.
Some of my friends call me "little grater", but they always say it with a smile because they all know that what I'm thinking comes out of my mouth without any filter. All the good and all the evil.
But I always try my best not to hurt anyone just for superficiality, and try to pay attention to other's needs. If I don't understand your needs, maybe it's just because I don't know you or your culture enough, not because I don't care about you.


I would like to become wonderful.

I would like to die as my beloved Chinese grandmother, who said to me "I had a wonderful life, I enjoyed myself a lot, I had a wonderful family, I had two wonderful children and six wonderful grandchildren... Now please let me go"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted some people here and there until my boyfriend has moved to my house and take his place on my couch...
Now I have been moved to Paris for business matter and can't host anyone anymore.
But I hope that some couchsurfers will help me discovering this new city and enjoying my new life.


Only few hosting experiences for now...

Never surfed anywhere yet because I don't like travelling alone very much...

And now that I am forced to live in another city, would be the right time to experience some "coffee time" with CSers living or travelling in Paris?


Trekking, Climbing, Martial Arts (I've been practising Kung Fu for 14 years... watch out!!!).
But there are a lot of things I would like to try!

I also would like to travel a bit more, maybe CouchSurfing might be a good chance to do it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Radiohead, Muse, Placebo, Pink Floyd, Queen, U2, Dire Straits, Massive Attack, Portishead, Mogwai, GodSpeed you!Black Emperor and more...

My favourite book is "1984" by Orwell... I had nightmares for months since I read that book...

Mmm... movies: "The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen)", "Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain", "Cyrano de Bergerac", "In the Name of the Father", "American History X", "Dances with Wolves", "Leon", "Schlinder's List"... "Princess Mononoke" and a lot of Miyazaki's anime, all the old Walt Disney's as "Fantasia", "Cinderella", "Bambi" and so on...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Starry sky in Ethiopia, above the Simien Mountains.

A jump in the superblue ice-cold water of a mountain lake in front of the Fitz Roy Mountain in Patagonia.

Watching Perito Moreno and feeling its energy through my veins (I know it might seem a little new age, but it's true, I could feel it as if it was alive).

And the fruit-juices in Gondar, the best I've ever drunk in all my life!

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to improve myself, as well as my English...
But I think improving English is quite much easier, so I will start from this.
Personal and spiritual growth will follow English lessons.

PS Now French lessons will be strongly appreciated as well!!!
