About Me


Try to learn baking by myself, blog my travel journey and dance salsa every week!!


I loves to travel around the world, share/experience new things with new friends and take photography for collecting good memories. Some friends call me crazy camera girl because I always take photos not only traveling but also in daily time. I believe when clicking shutter, these beautiful things will keep in my mind at the same time. There are some photos I took in Flicker, check it out if you like:).

Love music, and moving with music. maybe that is why I want to learn salsa and bachata.

Most of weekend, loving biking, blogging or hangout with friends in cafe and sharing time with families are fulling my life.

During weekday, I am a hard working person but still want to learn something new. Since Oct.2010, I started to learn my third language, French. Only a beginner, but make me feel excited to have new things learning.

I have a pretty sister, her name is Pang, my Labrador, was found in Sep. 2005 as she was been abandoned. I do love her as my own sister and love to spend time with her. You will love her as well due to her pure personality, easygoing, enthusiast for people, concentrated toy player, and love to share her own toys with you with no selfless.


@living with true love to someone you love,
