About Me

Expat from Singapore.
Moved to Hong Kong for a new job 6 years ago.

My apartment is in the super central district of Wan Chai.

Left-hander, Virgo, INFJ.
Born and raised in Singapore,
Graduated from university in London,
Worked in Singapore, Jakarta and now Hong Kong.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Looking to host interesting people from around the world, to hear stories and have a good laugh. I could show you some great places for dim sum and drinks around Hong Kong.

1) One traveller. My apartment is small so I can only host one guest.
2) ”Nightlife” travellers. Due to my lifestyle, I probably know the after-work nightlife spots and their alcohol menu better than whats on display at a certain museum.

I will not be the best host:
1) if you really love to hike
2) if you are easily offended/woke
3) if you are a picky eater
4) if you are ultra religious

I receive quite a few couchsurfing requests so do write a line or two in your couch request about:
1) your favourite drink
2) your favourite How I Met Your Mother character/scene/moment

I will read if you write and reject if you don’t.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I matchmade two of my friends - they got married and I flew to Seoul for their wedding in January 2018.

At the wedding I was introduced to both sets of parents as the guy who introduced the groom and bride. They each gave me a real genuine warm hug which I will never forget.
