About Me


Get connected

*I will not reply unless I can host/meet. I prefer to host surfer who stays 2-3days at my house*

*I can only bring you back to where I live after 6pm. You might need to leave when I leave for work, which is around 7:00am-8:30am.*

I am Chinese Malaysian and I've moved to Taiwan almost ten years ago for studies and currently working in Taiwan.

I have a great variety of interest, I like plane, cook, eat, traveling, read, write, movie, swim.. and the list goes on.

I find Taiwan a beautiful and peace place to live, I might considering settling down in Taiwan in the future.

I am proud to say that I am a survivor. I was diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma in March 2010 and I am in remission currently. I wear the yellow band to remind me to liveStrong.

I am gay but I like hanging out with boys and girls when I am free.


I believe everyone and everything in this planet is equal, so I vowed for vegetarianism. I also remind myself, do not only "take" from the society, should always "give" to the society. Environment protection is very important for the Earth, thus I always try to bring my own utensils when I dine out.

I love nature and I respect every living being. I don't think I have the right to kill any cute animals for my own feeding pleasure. I think a cut on my thumb is pain enough for me to cry, don't even mention a cut through my neck. I am a full-time vegan, part-time vegan since 2005 and it kept counting.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A friend of mine told me about this project and I think it is a great way to give back to the society. Hotels are earning evilly lots. I am currently living at a place which I cannot host, so.. maybe in the future I would host again.


Swim a lot, cook like a chef, read and write.

Music, Movies, and Books

Any music which is not too noisy.Any movie which is not too boring.Any book which is meaningful.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmm.. I started a campaign with a group of friends, promoting bring-your-own-untensils and ended up being adopted by the government. COOL.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am very interested in environment protection, vegetarianism and travel. I study biology and intellectual property, so if you are interested, welcome to start a conversation with me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

You can eat everything I have, use everything I use, but you cannot bring away anything I use.

I usually cook my dinner/lunch. If you happened to visit when I cook, I am more than willing to cook you a dinner.
