ABOUT ME

Gelalalalalala (Angela's gela) is my nickname. I am an architectural designer who loves to explore cities and lives. I loves Art and Architecture, but I prefer to explore art in the streets rather than in the museums. Also I love to explore art behind every person she meets.

PHILOSOPHY

Although everything is philosophy, the book <> changed me a lot.

Dream big is good, but only for the time when you are waiting for the chances to come.
If they come, please, don't dream, work!
(2011.11)

Dare to run!
Don't afraid of cutting of your finger, just find a dish.
Don't afraid of cowboy, just kick them off, or scream.
Don't afraid of being crashed by a motorbike, just walk by one leg.
Once you started, you cannot stop, the stop is at the end of the day.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

To give , to take, to love or to meet someone I hate =p

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Before I lived in Europe, I lived in Hong Kong and CouchSurfing was a cultural exchange to meet. I love showing people around different parts of the city, sometime I hosted but I seldom get the chance of being host.

After I moved to Berlin in 2011, I were hosted by Mohammad during my trip to Dresden. He was so nice and we shared and cooked together. I felt like being with a really good friend.

I started to realize it is not only about cultural exchange but even more on to love and care.

Then I decided to being a better host, as good as I can =)

I am a super bad sleeper. So if you snore, don't stay with me.
If you don't, tell me and I will be more happier to host you.

Interests

I am interested in the potential of space, not only those created by Architects, but also those created by citizens, or those pop up occasionally.

I am a big fans of Archigram, also Steven Holl, louis I Kahn, Le Corbusier.

I love watching films, I watch all different films except the scary one.
Favourtie Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski

I were a lighting design because I am afraid of dark when I was small.But I learnt from lighting design that without dark you wont be able to design the light. I love Experimental Theatre, be crazy, broadway started to be boring.

The strongest photo it the simplest photo, colour is great but sometimes monochromatic photograph tells you more.
Favourite photographers: Guy Bourdin, Joel Meyerowitz, Erwin Olaf, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bettina Rheims

I love Salvador Dalí. I wont type about him as words are too inadequate to describe him.

To express yourself, dont bound to words.

I love Jesus.

I travel, to be exact, backpacking.

I love Coffee.
No Espresso no Good Morning.
