About Me

CURRENT MISSION

学中文; King of Comedy; Band Projects

ABOUT ME

Whenever asked to choose one word that best describes me, I find the following comes to mind: indescribable.
Check out my references, though: they have all done a pretty good job at it!

PHILOSOPHY

Go with the flow.
Make waves if you´re prepared to ride them out.
It´s never ONLY rock ´n´ roll: that´s why I like it.
Wandering is about the journey, not the destination.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've gotta say - not a fan of the new couch request system. It took me from 100% response to 29% response level. ADVICE: If you're busy, don't leave yourself as a MAYBE. It could happen to you. (Back up to 100% The plan worked: muahahaha!)

Have traveled and hosted with hundreds of other couch surfers in 30+ countries. Check referrals below :D

With Comedy.HK I host a FREE weekly open-mic comedy event that is free for all to enjoy. It's posted in the activities section on facebook as well. You can anticipate the action by Liking Us on Facebook

Teach, Learn, Share

Smile, laugh, and make faces at children: there's immediate payoff from each.

Don't rely on words for communication: they'll just confuse you. Rely on meaning, context, and above all, charades.

Don't worry about making a fool of yourself: everyone has to, and everyone enjoys when someone else does.

Unless you're allergic, eat anything on recommendation.
