About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Getting Morgan Freeman to narrate my life.

ABOUT ME

I am from Hong Kong, born there, moved to Singapore when I was young, grew up there, went over to London for my architectural education and relocating to Basel/Switzerland for work!

Student of architecture. However, love many other things too, politics, economics, philosophy, music...life in general.

This is my first shot at CS as previously I have always travelled with friends so CS was not a big option.

PHILOSOPHY

hmmmmm. This is a trap, any one-liners here would sound beyond cheesy and cliche. skip.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I plan to host when able to and surf when money allows.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Zero, would love to start! I usually go to hostels whenever I travel.

Interests

Architecture and the arts. Music, from classical to electronic...all genres as long as they are good. Economics, politics and philosophy, its nice to see and understand how everything is so interconnected from small to the large and back to the small again.

Music, Movies & Books

From Chopin to Boiler Room Berlin sets for my music taste. The XX is one of my all-time fav too! Trent Reznor to Trentemoller!

Million Dollar Baby, Reservoir Dogs, The Social Network, Au Revoir Les Enfants...and many more

Somehow, I generally gravitate towards tragedies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Climbing Mount Kinabalu when I was 15 in total darkness before dawn while your friend swears at you out of the blue because of AMS(acute mountain sickness) and upon reaching the peak, stayed there for the sunrise.

You know, those stereotypes of how someone shouts at the top of his lungs at the peak. Wrong. The immensity of the mountain renders you speechless and you just have to watch in awe. Truely sublime experience. Unforgettable.

Countries I've Lived In
