About Me


Find a special vegetable seed.


I'm 151 cm tall. I try my best to be a vegetarian. I enjoy traveling alone. Sometimes I'm very talkative, sometimes I find nothing to entertainain you and I might bore you to tears. Or you may think there is something wrong with me.


Life is so good!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Introduce this program to my friends. Visit the web often and try my best to answer member's questions.

I found this web is a super big and super interesting book to read. Some
members upload amazing photos. Lots of their profiles are really inspiring.


People come, people go. Some guests come back at 3 am, some leave after midnight. Some equipped with ipad, iphone, nice bikes, some only has a small backpack. A Polish host told me " Guests are angels!" . It's really true!
Every host treats me at his or her best. Some drive me here and there.
Some ferry me. Most of the time I feel I'm treated like a queen! Travelling really changes my life. I always learned something from my trip. The more I travel, the less "desire" I have.

Music, Movies, and Books

Any kind of movie without BANG! BANG! or car crash.
Sometimes I need some kind of noise. Sometimes I love Jazz or blues. Sometimes I begin my day with Japanese songs. ( Taiwan was occupied by Japanese before). Hope you have a chance to enjoy Taiwanese folk songs like: Hakka or Bunun or Paiwan....
Books with beautiful pictures or smells like "perfume" is much easier for me. Reading English is still a big challenge! If you want me to write in English, I am a cripple with words, but I enjoy reading.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

See my family name on a commercial board spelled in my mother tongue (Taiwanese) in Vietnam. Hear my family name called in Taiwanese in a singapore movie ("Mister Khoo"). It is spelled " Chiu" in Chinese, but "khoo" in Taiwanese!
