I am 27 and still finding grounds in my life. I am born and raised into a conservative Chinese family. As I grew, I was inducted into a city-state where a competitive modern society has made achievements and money become a call of life. I have a job in one of the most awarded airport in the world. I think and I see endless possibilities.
To learn about things that are greater than myself, my kin and kith, my job, and my country, travelling afforded me the chance to discover everything and anything. After each overseas trip, I come back home a learned person with pair of brand new eyes. I show people how wrong they were about a particular country. I share with them the amazing people I have met and those individuals I have had the honor to lunch with. I recount the smiles of locals with whom I greeted and thanked in their native languages.
In a modern society where scepticism is ingrained in us and after realizing our inability to appreciate, I am humbled by the trust that strangers have so genuinely afforded me. I believe there is power in knowledge and reaching out to people, and I urge that you do the same.
My camera is to me what cigarettes are to smokers. Along with aircrafts, I consider it one of the greatest invention in modern times. Photographs are frozen memories and when you look into them hard enough, they each tell a story. They are filled with feelings and full of life. POOPLER.com captures stories I found and I treasure. After all, the business of life is the acquisition of memories.

"The real adventure of travel is mental. It is about total immersion in a place, because nobody from any other place can contact you. Thus your life is narrowed to what is immediately before your eyes, making the experience of it that much more vivid."
