About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Starting it all over back home after my adventure in London and Europe~

ABOUT ME

I love travelling to learn new culture and ways of life. Just finished working holiday in London for about 2 years,enjoyed the life experience and trips I've made around Europe.:) Now back to hometown!

Always curious and look forward to meeting people from various places and background, listening to their stories and anecdotes. Sometimes what a place impressed me the most are the people I met and the atmosphere.

Enthusiastic. Spontaneous at times.

Totally a film buff and a massive music lover.

I love all kinds of gourmet. Always try to discover good food whenever I am.
