About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be a better me

ABOUT ME

Going to Australia for a year of working holiday by the end of this year,2014!! Yay!!For me, it's going to be a gap year, a year to put aside the hectic city life in one of the fastest pace cities in the world, Hong Kong, and to be free, to explore, learn.

Recently, have been spending lots of time thinking how to live happily and what are the most important things in life, I know that may sound cheesy to you but i do mean it. So now I am trying to pursue the answer during travel. Cause in travel, by stepping out of the comfort zone, by facing the genuine side of myself, and by meeting so many different yet amazing people, I learn.

I like things keep changing and that excites me. Probably that's the reason that I feel wanderlust so strong, a huge urge to explore. The more I travel, the more I realize how little I know. It makes me huger for knowledge and have learnt to respect others who has different values and come from different background.

I like meeting all kind of people. That's a true good way to look at the world through them, you can see how big/different, how many thousands of probabilities of living styles under the same sky. Also, there's a saying says " everyone.has a book in them", isn't it? ;D

I studied film in uni and I will always be proud about it. Cause we are both  the practical and the idealistic people, we have the messages and stories to tell and we make them out starting from zero.

After graduating, I worked in a art based florist, cause I am so amazed by how beautiful there is something like flowers on earth that they naturally are. Surrounded by flowers and plants becomes a necessity to me now. They make my day by bringing such a lively atmosphere to me.

Besides, flowers and film, I also like taking photos, going to ruins, reading and hiking, I like arts, I like going to galleries and exhibitions, I like vintage, I like how the things stay as how it was decades or hundreds years ago and I feel I am connected to it's history somewhere I am not belong to. Every vintage is a treasure to me cause you need luck to meet them. So if you know any flea market and secret ruins, please let me know, I will be more than mega excited to.know about them:D

PHILOSOPHY

Life is short so be awesome of who you are.

No one said life is easy but it is worth it.

To deny your impulses, is to deny the very thing that makes you human.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I have been couchsurfing in Italy ,Malaysia and Singapore. Met so many amazing people on the way, without them, the trips would never be the same. Heritages show me the history but people show me the lively side of the place. They show me the personality of the place. They let me join them in their normal daily lives. They made me connect to the place. What's more important is, hosts and I become friends and some of us are still keeping in touch, becoming true friends and look forward to meet again one day! So now when I go travel again, I am not only looking forward to visit the new places but also feeling excited about who am i gonna meet this time, who am I gonna share some amazing memories on journey;D

Also, couchsurfing is like unwrapping gift, cause every time when u stay with a host, you don't know what kind of person he/she actually is, what kind of chemistry you will have and how your stay gonna be. it's like a bunch of surprises which make me look forward to before meeting them.

Flowers make me feel bliss. Taking pictures brings me to a world of beauty. Travel makes me alive. Hiking refreshes me. Music makes me dance. Films make me cry. Arts is my medicine.
