About Me

Hello all! We are Leon and Anna !
We are couples who just moved to the States for good!

A simple introduction bout us:
I have a lot of hobbies and am quite interested in new things with a great passion. I like to meet and chat with people. Always ready for a challenge new things and being adventurous.
I spent 4 years in Yangzhou university with a major of electronics, then stayed almost 7 years in Nanjjng, then was in Guangzhou for half year, now I settle down in Shanghai. Look forward to meeting new cool guys.
For me, life is infinitely non-replicatable miracle, I just want to enjoy the whole journey and cherish everything that come over to my life. I keep thinking all the time regarding to equilibrium between traditional Chinese philosophy(as well some other eastern Asian part) and western mainstream mindset, which is very interesting to explore and come into spark to lead my thinking and behaviour.

I am full of life and love to laugh and smile. I believe that everyone should have a chance to travel! I would like to get out and see the world Im a spontaneous person and love life. I live for community service and new experiences.
I like to randomly begin dancing when a song pops into my head, love to sing but I can't,love trying new foods,
movie nights are the best thing since sliced bread, i am always up for a good adventure :) I have been living in shanghai since 2011. I studied here, graduated and am now working. I believe it is important to meet people from all over the world!
