About Me

ROOM AVAILABLE FOR RENT UNTIL SEP 9. If you need a cheap place to stay please contact me.

FIRST THING FIRST
DO NOT send me copy-and-paste couch requests, or you will get the same. ONLY send personalized requests if any parts of my profile resonate with you and you want to know me as a person. And I don't like people who only talk about themselves all the time. It's not just about you, it's about both human beings having conversations. Make it interesting! RECIPROCITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.

Couchsurfing is NOT FREE! Read this to see if it is right for you, and what are the expectations.

And we will likely click if you share some of these 30 characteristics that would impress me:

CURRENT MISSION

Help. Share. Live.

ABOUT ME

ISFJ: introverted, sensing, feeling, judging (MBTI). Open-minded and friendly with people once you get to know me. Huge Gleek and it has been my support during good and bad times. Hope to see this world as much as I can. I'm gay and want to meet friends around the globe!

My top 5 strengths from Gallup StrengthsFinder test:

Harmony: look for consensus, avoid conflict and seek areas of agreement

Empathy: can easily sense other people’s feelings by imagining themselves in others’ lives or situations

Deliberative: take serious care in making decisions or choices and anticipate obstacles

Achiever: work hard and possess a great deal of stamina, take immense satisfaction in being busy and productive

Relator: enjoy close relationships with others, find deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal

Meet me and see if it's true. :)

PHILOSOPHY

Everything will be fine in the end, if it's not fine, it's not the end.

Dream as if you will live forever, live as if you will die tomorrow.

Don't stop believing.

Everything happens for a reason.

What goes around comes around/Karma is a bitch.

YOLO: You only live once.

See the world not as it is, but as it should be.

FUNNY: Life is like a dick. Sometimes it gets hard for no reason. All we have to do is suck it up. lol

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Found this amazing tool on Google. I hope I can meet more people from this experience.

Tried couchsurfing in Australia, Taiwan, Europe and Singapore and am hosting in Hong Kong.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I really love couchsurfing and I think it's the best way to travel and really get to know different cultures and meet amazing people! I enjoy reading interesting profiles and get to know hosts whom I will be staying with.

Couchsurfed in Australia for 52 consecutive days, 7 days in Taiwan, 33 days in Europe, 11 days in Singapore and 6 days in Bali.

Now that I have my own place, I am very eager to help fellow couchsurfers, as a way of giving back to the community for all the amazing things other hosts around the world has done to me.

Doing couchsurfing brings some clarity to my world and reminds me to be the person I really want to be. There are so many amazing and great people out there and I'm trying my best to connect with them, one way or another.

Interests

TV shows and movies
Reunions
Pop music
Hiking
Photography (though I have to admit I barely use my professional camera except travelling :P)
Listen to podcast about self-help, personal development and growth, and leadership/management topics
Meet people from different countries

Groups I belong to: Queer CouchSurfers, Queer / LGBT Hong Kong 香港 同志/ 酷兒, Hong Kong CS People (the real CSHK community), LAST MINUTE Couch Search - Hong Kong, FUNNY NEGATIVE REFERENCES, FUNNY COUCH REQUESTS, Couchsurfing - Advice for Hosts

In your couch request, tell me what we have in common and why do you think we will get along. Secondly, your favourite place you have been to and why. Third, tell me what you can offer/reciprocate for your stay (e.g. bring something nice/special from your travel/country, cook a meal, teach some really cool stuff etc). I am doing this because I think it would be fair to both parties and I feel more balanced psychologically (I have hosted a lot of takers and I don't feel good about it). And also I have received so many copy-and-paste requests so this is what you can do to make yours stands out!
