About Me

CURRENT MISSION

travel and explore as much as I can!

ABOUT ME

I am now a third-year student in the University of Hong Kong. I major in Sociology and History. I worked at Amnesty International as an intern last summer and I am now a volunteer in the Abolish the Death Penalty Group.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I spent one semester in Glasgow, Scotland and I spent a month travelling in Europe. It was then I discovered couchsurfing.

The idea of staying in local people's homes always fascinates me. I have heard of wonderful couchsurfing experiences from my friends so I decide to try it out ;)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had amazing experiences in Amsterdam,Copenhagen, Paris and Dublin!!!! I can't wait to meet more new friends in this community!

If you are in Hong Kong, send me a message so we can go out for a drink or a meal! I would love to show you around as well ;)

Interests

I love music, books and movies. I enjoy folk, jazz, bossa nova, indie, country and classical music. I like both fiction and non-fiction. Drama and romance are my favourite movie genres. Poetry, theatre, musical, art and architecture are all my passion as well.

I fell in love with Flamenco after seeing a live performance in Madrid and I am now taking Flamenco classes every week ;)

I am recently very much into sports. I like running, thai bxoing, swimming, ice skating, belly dancing, yoga, pilates and flamenco :D

I love cooking and baking a lot too! And of course I love eating (I mean who doesnt???)

Lastly, chilling in cafes and drinking in clubs are equally enjoyable to me :)
