About Me


A journalist living in Barcelona at the moment desires to explore the differences of Europe and Asia.


I think the best gift that people receive from life is smile. Everyone has his/her most beautiful moment when he/she smiles. Therefore, although my teeth is not fine, I still always smile and make people around me laugh (to find those who have more ugly teeth than me,haha). So please send me your picture capturing from the screen if you are smiling now, to help me become the biggest collector of teeth, thank you :D


"To live is to fight" may be right to many people. But to me, it's more correct with "To live is to smile". Everything seems easier and better if I can look at and act with a humorous mind, particularly in tense positions or problems. It's not always successful. Sometimes tear comes before smile. But eventually, it will (or must) be smile :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Through a friend whose friend is a familar host to several foreign surfers


Couchsurfing is not new to many people in my country. But the number of both hosts and surfers is small. (If you want to know more about it, message me) Most of members of the couchsurfing community in Vietnam now usually attend events of meeting and hangout with foreigners surfers and travelers rather than being a host. I've recently become one of them after attending some meetings and have some new foreign friends to have good time together.
I have met and stayed with some locals in my travel and all are new interesting experiences. I hope I could meet more cool and nice people to share travel and culture stories for great memories with CS. Honestly, I must say that I don't look for some "sexy adventure or crime".


I'm a fan of eating (surely Vietnamese street food), watching beautiful eyes and handsome beard (luckily my eyes are frequently satisfied because in Vietnam, people usually walk or ride motorbike to easily catch up), sleeping, travelling, reading books, laughing at funny movies, listening to music (Pop & Rock), playing badminton and pool...

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a greedy person to love so many things. How can I give all here? Just some of them that I've enjoyed for many times.
Books: Gone with the wind, Martin Eden, The Fountainhead, Perfume, 11 minutes, Veronika decides to die
Movies & drama series: 3 idiots, Titanic, Gentleman's dignity, I hear your voice

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A handsome prince riding a white horse galloped to my door. When he came closer, I realized that there was another pretty man after him. "Wow, are they sent by God for me to choose?" But my smile soon turned into tears when the prince turned back and kissed the man. God, please take them back. "Do all handsome guys love and bring happiness to each other only?" I screamed to wake up from the nightmare.

Teach, Learn, Share

As a Vietnamese, I'm confident in guiding you to learn Vietnamese language, cook our food and flirt a local ha ha. In return, very easy, just be yourself and always ready for my questions. I'm a curious girl who wants to learn about your life and your world - new things to me.
