About Me

Let go the attachments to anyone and possession of materials, peace and happiness will be always with you. It set you a true freedom.


World is too small to connect with people but too big to explore. Life is too short but too long at the same time, it's not measurable but to live in the present moment.


I am currently running businesses in Hong Kong. I am working to find a sustainable way to set myself free financially and mentally.

I love ideas. I also love the feeling of building nothing from somethings. I can be non-stop thinking about new ideas and I love to execute them !

I love nature and people at the same time !! Nature gives me a Shelter and people give me love. I love hiking, hiking and hiking though I am not very strong. Recently I am learning Salsa dance which makes me love music a lot and it helps to live yourself in the moment !

I am very complicated person and a typical Gemini. I am easygoing, openminded, adventurous, logical, positive and stubborn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love CS. I love the way of traveling with CS experience. Stay with locals, make friends with locals and know more of less known for travellers. Travelling is about connection of people ! World is just too small!


I couch surfed a lot when I was in Europe for 8 months. I met wonderful people through couch surfing which makes me become an openminded person and shaped today's me. Couch surfing makes my travel experience more unique and memorable. Now, I would like to contribute back to CS world!
