About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Being a backpacker in my life!

ABOUT ME

I like travelling and being a backpacker all times. Moreover, I like to listen people's stories and their wisdom which come from their own personal lives.

Sometimes, when people meet people, you will find a lot of different things that we seldom imagine. After all, you will find that there are many many possibilities for us to be in the world.

Beside that, I would like to show my home city state , Hong Kong, to everyone that I met. I think as a traveller, we do not just experience things from ppl but share our own as well.

I have resigned my job and would like to take this chance to travel around the world. Hope that I can broaden my horizon and learn through trips.

PHILOSOPHY

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination. (Roger, Carl)

Through the Thou a person becomes I. (Buber, Martin)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live in an Island in HK where far away from the city centre. I would like to meet people who want to look at the small typical HK village and get away from the busy city centre in HK.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I become a CS member for more than 3 years and I had an experience to host a CS member.
I showed him around my home town and living place.
I shared my country's culture and some points of views of today's Hong Kong people.

Interests

I like ...
travelling (around the world)

cooking ( I can cook for you if you dont mind I PLAY at your kitchen)

watching films ( more stories that you expereinced, more possibilities that you have)

reading ( words can let oneself understand the Human world better! XD)

Doing Yoga. I practiced yoga (not just Asana) for more than 6 years. I like the mindfulness living style.

Music, Movies & Books

Pedro Almodovar, Woody Allen and Alfred Hitchcook.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

1. Practicing Sunmudo(Korea Martial Art) in Golgulsa in GyeongJu for a whole month. I do really like the life their. More I practices, more I learned about myself.

2. Stayed in Rishikesh(India) for two and a half months because of YOGA only! I stayed in an Ashram for a whole month and it was an super awesome experience that I had in my life. After that, I learned how to be a Hatha Yoga teacher in a Yoga school. This whole trip changed my life and perspective about life and yoga.

3. Stayed in one of a host from couchsurfing who are at Frigiliana. Those four days were awesome. He is a very kind man and I like the little town with such good and positive energy around there. Moreover, maybe I like Spain very much. Everywhere I had travelled in Spain was just wonderful.

4. Stayed at Cuba for a whole month and met a very good family who treated me like their son in Havana. I lived with them for whole two weeks.

5. The Four Day Marches in Nijmegen was awesome and this was my first time to come to enjoy the whole week festival! I cannot find other place that can such long festival with full of musics and fun around the city.

Teach, Learn, Share

I was a colleage teacher who teach senior students mathematics and pure mathematics.

Do you know about Beauty of Mathematics?
Or...you find it very boring or difficult? haha

Now, I can teach Hatha Yoga and Meditation after the trip in India.
