About Me


Enjoy life. The present moment is what we have.


I'm the chief editor and a writer at The Book of Miles, a Hong Kong-based, non-profit online literary publication dedicated to sharing travel stories. I do this for my passion in writing and traveling.

Here's the link of it (in Chinese) http://bookofmiles.com/

I'm also a teacher and I travel a lot during my holidays.

I have lots of interests: traveling, writing, movies, literature, arts, meeting people... I can't say which one tops my list because they're all inseparable from my life and I enjoy every one of them!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I started couchsurfing when I was in college. It's a memorable experience and I was lucky to have met a lot of great people!

I have only hosted one couchsurfer at home so far, but have showed lots of couchsurfers around my city.


Sometimes go out with couchsurfers who come to Hong Kong.


Culture, literature, writing, movies, traveling, people.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Too many I like. Chinese, English, European literature, classic and contemporary, poems, fictions and prose, basically anything.

Films: Wong Kar-wai Krezysztof Kieslowski Woody Allen

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Skyline of Hong Kong, my beautiful city. Roots of ancient trees in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Colour of the sky in St Petersburg. The first time seeing snow in New York.

I could go on and on.
