About Me


Now, I vow to devote myself, with whole body and mind, to examining this life as it is.


I am confused by my cultural identity at times. I don't think like a modern commie-minded Chinese. Though I sound just like a mid-western American gal, I am obviously not one of them either. I am a believer in the common goodness of Humanity, and find no point figuring out what I am any more. :-)


It's all about being present, right here, right now.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surf and host, show CSers around or meet for drinks.


I did CouchSurfing when I went to India, and met amazing people there. Sumit, an air attandent I met in via Couchsurfing in Delhi totally changed my view on Delhi and made it into an adventious, and fun experience!
