About Me

My full name is Cheng Chun Yat, while Cheng is the surname (its not the same with jackie chan) and Chun Yat is the given name. You can simply call me Yat. Eden is my name that I used in school. (Yeah, complicated name system in my culture) I prefer you call me Yat. I am here because I love travelling and meeting people from all around the world and listening their stories. I'm not a person who loves being in a large group of people. I try to be a funny person, but not everyone can get my jokes sometimes. When I'm in a good mood, I will be doing crazy things HAHA. I'm a respectful person, but only if people are respectful too. I'm kinda YES person who don't know how to say no. (except for rude and take-it-for-granted Couchsurfing request!!!)

Well, a few lines of words can't describe me well. Come and find out!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've heard about Couchsurfing before and I immediately thought it was a good idea. I started with an awesome couchsurfing experience as a host in Feb 2010. Hosted for several times, surfed for three times, and met some people. Since I've surfed once in Australia and I would say I fall in love with CouchSurfing since then. I hope to be more active in CouchSurfing.

Interests

Traveling - I guess everyone here love travelling too. When I was a child, I always read the map and imagined what it's like in other part of the world. Now I can see it from my own eyes. My dream is to travel the whole world.

Language - According to a famous saying, Speaking a language is like acquiring another soul. I love languages a lot. However, I don't speak a lot of languages. I always learn a new language, but I lose my patience very soon and I give up.

Cookery - If peace is a question, then the answer is food! Food can definitely bring people together. I like cooking and I work in restaurants as a chef. It's because I like to eat LOL. For me, life is for eating good food! I cook almost everyday. I love cooking to others and enjoy when people like my food.

Anything that seems exotic, unusual, abnormal to me but normal to you.

Anything that seems abnormal to me and you...why not?

I also like music, film, photography, history

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: action, war maybe. Don't have a specific genre of movies

Music: Most of the songs in my iPod are hardcore music, but I also like soft music. Generally, I like any kind of music except Justin Bieber's LOL...

Books: Maps(I always read map!), mostly utility books such as language learning books, recipes, travel guides of countries that I'm not going to, blahblahblah for dummies...and recently I kinda like travel literature (Idiot Abroad is real good!).
