About Me


We live in Shenzhen!


- You're all individuals!
- I'm not.

(c) Monthy Python


Happiness - it's not a destination but a means of transportation.

"When you travel a lot, and when you love to just wander around and get lost, you can end up in the strangest spots. … I don’t know, it must be some sort of built-in radar that often directs me to places that are strangely quiet, or quietly strange.”
(c) Wim Wenders
