About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finishing my list of "Things to do before 22"

ABOUT ME

Very willing to try new stuff. Do not want to live an ordinary life like many others. Always seeking opportunities to experience new culture. Very quiet when I am with people whom I have no interest at all, but can be really talkative when I am with people whom I think are special and unique in their own ways.

PHILOSOPHY

Freedom is not free, therefore you have to give something up to protect and exchange for it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, it all started when I was on my exchange in Spain. I would want to travel as much as I could but I had a tight budget, so my prime motive of joining CS was to save cost. But after my FIRST couch-surfing experience, I love how I could meet people of different cultural backgrounds. Now, I couch-surf not because of cost-saving anymore, but because I want to meet locals from different countries and to live like a local too!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A lot, all of them are unique and memorable. The sweetest thing is that you couch-surfed at your host's place, and a few months later, they come to Hong Kong and we can meet again, this time in my hometown :)

Interests

Anything that could shape my identity. I spend most of my time thinking about my passion about work and future.

Music, Movies & Books

Books:
"Nothing to Envy" - a book about North Korea, very inspiring.
Detective stories - esp. Sherlock Holmes and books by Higashino Keigo.

Movies:
Iron Man series and Avengers (haha yes I am a huge fan of Iron Man)
Inspirational movies/ movies which make me think

Music:
Currently really into indie and ballads. Everything basically. Well if I really have to name a few it would be K-pop, Bossa Nova, Jazz.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was at the Cannes Film Festival - I even went into watch the premiere of "Killing Them Softly", with Brad Pitt seated just a few meters away from me :D
I travelled on a stranger's motorcycle.
I slept in the airport like a boss.
