About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Savor my moments in London

ABOUT ME

I always describe myself as spontaneous, adventurous and creative. I am always make important life decisions based on my intuitions and I am not afraid of taking the leap in life. I spent my whole life growing up in Malaysia, but coming to London and study was an eye-opener experience. After my 3 years in London, I have decided to go couch surfing for the first time. I travelled for a month in Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. It has been an amazing experience. I spent a year working in Hong Kong. Now I have returned to London and I am currently doing my Part 2 in architecture.
I am always passionate about arts and architecture. When I was in university, I am always interested in speculative and experimental approach which challenges the boundaries of architecture. However, I think architects are under-appreciated. Through my travel, I wish introduce architecture to my newly met friends and explain that architects do not JUST design buildings, the possibilities in architecture is beyond your imagination.
I am also a music enthusiast, I enjoy playing the acoustic guitar. I like making performances on the street. When I travelled to Paris last Summer, I took over one of the busking artists' performance while he was taking a break. It was in front of Sacré-Cœur, a great tourist spot to experience the panoramic view of Paris.
As I grew up in a multi-racial society, I am fortunate to be exposed to different languages and cultures. Apart from being a native Mandarin and Cantonese speaker, I also speak fluent English and Malay. I also work as a part-time interpreter and translator, I am more than happy teach you the languages I know when I am travelling.
