About Me


To learn about Thai traditional herbs!


I am really quite complex and simple all at the same time! I've travelled to many places and got a little confused in between, and now I more than ever appreciate the simple but beautiful things in our world. I like tea and nature.


Eat well, sleep well, drink good teas and laugh a lot!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I joined relatively early and benefited greatly, so I wanted to bring it to Taiwan and named it 沙發客。 I was organizing a lot of activities when I was in living in Shanghai.

I shared a lot and I like people who know how to share and exchange!


Tea making, zen meditation and music.
