About Me

I am a PhD student at Tsinghua University, Beijing.
Currently staying in Syracuse (Aug2017-Feb2018) as a visiting scholar at SU.


Study hard, PLAY HARDER!!! (◕‿◕✿)


I am loving my life. And especially appreciate to have the freedom and courage to live the life i love.
Used to work in Singapore,but then got so bored with the routine life. And kept wondering what are the alternatives me to insert some new sparks into this life.

So, i ran away to UK for work and start solo travel.Surprisingly to discover i'd addicted to this kind of adventure.Simply move to a new destination, just flow with the river of 'fate'. How strange is that we could meet someone at somewhere someday. That makes life so much more interesting. Just like the Pandora's box.
Everyday is a surprise. Every moment is a blessing. Every strangers is just the friend we haven't meet.

** Live your life the way you want, not the way people expected you to want it. **
** Be Happy!!**

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A Canadian told me about CS when we were staying at YMCA in Bath, England.
Her experience with CS friends sounded so amazing to me!
But the real kick start was when i met a CS member, Petr in Inverness. He lives in a totally CS welcome house. Our friendship is a proof of "better late than none".I grew intense confidence from there.


3 and a half months backpack in the Europe and been couchsurfing all the way.
Cool,awesome,great fun, fantastic experiences.
And i'm looking forward for more!!
