About Me


discover new things about the world and about me everyday.


I hate to write these things, it took me so long to sit down and actually typing here. I might sound really bitchy here, but I promise I'm a nice person. I can't say I'm a interesting person because that totally depend on what you think is interesting, but judging from the past experience of people's reaction towards me, I believe I'm not boring.
and I can be kind of weird, like talking-about-how-poop-is-one-of-the best-art-work-of-nature, -when-everybody-including-me-are-eating weird, not like serial-killer-psychopath weird. so bon appetit!


I have a theory, everybody should go behind the jail bar at least once in a life time. but I don't mean it in a criminal way, if you swich "go behind the jail bar" into "eat a egg" or "sing a birthday song in a funeral", it all works.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I go to the HK CS event very offen, and I hosted people before I even I have this profile, and I surf too. However, I just been lazy about setting up my profile, so I'm just doing it now.


I have couchsurfing experience bla bla bla....


films, literature, dancing, being mildly crazy, intense discussion....
