About Me

Grew up in Taiwan, done working holidays in New Zealand in 2012 and stay until now.

My friends usually describe me as an energetic, lovely and helping person,

Hate myself wasting time dreaming but never have a clear schedule to do it,
talk the talk, walk the walk, I believe I'm on the way to achieve my dreams step by step.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When living in New Zealand, I got my own car so I start to pick up some hitchhikers, it was fun and we shared traveling experiences and the 3 hours ride feels like 30 mins. Which gives me an idea that maybe Couchsurfing will be as fun as taking hitchhikers, though I haven't try CS, maybe it will be like an over-night bus but only 1 passenger.
I can exchange something I have or own knowledge or experience with my host, since I'm always a helping person, it's good to receive some help sometimes.


Cooking, baking and eating.
Spending quality time with good friends. Having a good coffee and never stop finding good cafes and restaurant.
Swimmng naked in the lake or sea.(It's amazing)
Skiing and always push myself to the limit to the steepest slope, and feel so proud of myself afterwards
Hot yoga, like to get myself all sweat and happy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When working in the restaurant in New Zealand,
I get to make the Valentine's special desserts, being just an baking amateur, so grateful to my boss giving me the chance to do what I to do. It's really a dream come true to me. Seeing customers' happy face made my day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to learn new language and I can teach you some useful Chinese and Japanese, and we can exchange culture difference.

I'd love to cook for you if you want to try some Asian cuisine, and I also want to try some local dishes if you can guide me.

Asian countries traveling tip, where's worth visit and what to do.
Good massage and a tidy person.
