About Me


I am going to go to New Zealand with working holiday for a period of about a year.


I don't travel a lot (not nearly enough, actually!)

I'm a Chinese from Malaysia. I think that's where my real journey started in Taiwan - where I studied and earned my degree & master.

I always wish I were an outgoing and talkative person, I often fantasize about wandering around in a strange city, waking up in different places, carrying everything I have with me all the time, but unfortunately it did not. Finally, on the day of my 29th birthday, I will throw myself into a foreign country, strange language environment, I want to force myself to communicate with others, to speak, and learn more independent living.

More important is to practice English, my English is pretty limited. So if you find my English grammar questions, please correct me.


- I don't smoke, but I will try to accept with people smoking around me -
- I rarely drink because of religious beliefs.
- I am bad at cooking, but I am willing to learn if someone can give me guidance.


Seize the moment, no regrets... I wish I could do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I tell others about this website, as I have not much friends know about here.

I got myself verified.

I haven't get the chance to start hosting/surfing yet, but I believe it is going to be a part of my lifestyle.


never, still waiting...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did not expect that I can go abroad to study, with the experience of the first plane when I was 22 years old, wow!
Most of the amazing moments occurred in Taiwan, for example, the second time to play the piano on the stage (the first I was eight years old), the orchestra first performed my arranger works in the recital, the first time I saw the huge sunset gradually sink into the sea (I was in tears), each time I saw the waterfalls of a variety of locations, etc.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a little bit of piano, dulcimer (the Chinese musical instruments, Yangqin) and double bass stuff that I am willing to share if you are almost a beginner ;)

You wanna learn Chinese? I will do my best to share with you some phrases and the pronunciation!

I will be very happy if anyone is willing to teach me some tips about English speaking and grammar!!
