About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Anyone ride me to Egypt?

ABOUT ME

I'm easy going , cheerful and patient. I love Art & Design, having a busy life in Design School. I start traveling last year, and the first destination is Korea. Since then, I can't stop traveling. I have been to Korea, Taiwan, Italy, Germany and Thailand. I love to explore the city I'm living in. Since I was a kid, I just love to go out. Climbing mountain, sail away to sea, wondering in lane, adventure in some unfamiliar corner. I am too curious to stay at home. When I grow older, I just found that living in Hong Kong such a small place cannot satisfy my curiosity. The world is too big to explore, I still set my goal to collect the chops around the planet. I would love to be an insider to get to know the city.

PHILOSOPHY

"You have to expect things"of yourself before you can do them." - Michael Jordon

Life is too short, so try new things, and live with passion!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

my friend told me about this, and he host many foreign traveler since last year. I found it interesting to make friends in house. It's a good way to see things through others eye.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't try any couch surf before, yet, I was living in a host family when I'm in Southern Thailand for a service workcamp in an alternative school. Although we only know to speak a little bit Thai, but we still get along well through body language. They cook delicious food for us, and we can return with washing the dishes .aha They also give us an accessory of blessing when we leave. I keep it will me all the times until now. It's such a funny and heartwarming experience.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It must be the trip to Thailand with my buddies. We go there as a volunteer. We try many "first time" here. Usually we design on paper, drawing CAD, but this time we really build by our own hands. It is a "bathroom " in the forrest without roof! Can you believe that you are watching by the trees surrounding when you are taking a shower? As a city girl, that's an amazing moment I have ever had.

We go to the wet market, dancing and singing crazy for fund raising. Finally we raise enough money for them to build a larger kitchen! We join the local wedding party, listen to the strange music and dancing till night. I never though my friends can be so carefree to express themselves. That surprise me!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know some guitar & piano. I love language, know a little bit Japanese, French & Itlaian. It would be nice if I can learn more in the trips.
I'm not really good at story telling, but I love to listen. :D
