About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ENJOY THE VERY LAST BIT OF YOUTH. LOVE YOUR LIFE.

ABOUT ME

i am playful and energetic. i love to meet new people and enjoy interacting with people with different cultural background.

i can be talkative but actually i am a shy person! some people think i am a cold person from the first impression... actually i am just busy looking for things to talk about. it might take a little more time for me to open up :) just be patient! :)

Like [V]
sunshine
Nature
Food
Dance

Dislike [X]
Rain/ Snow
Pollution
Birds/ anything with beak and feathers

i am a really easy simple person who dont care too much about politics, religions, celebrities' personal life etc or anything that too far away from my own life. i mean why i have to bother if i could never get there? like i am going to be a president or rock star one day? ha- funny!

i am a typical girl born in Hong Kong. basically 'HongKongese' are just too busy making money. politics, religion are kinda the last thing we care about. we believe work your ass off right now to build your future!

PHILOSOPHY

work hard, play hard.

live today like there is no tomorrow.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i had some couchsurfing experience but those people i surfed with were not from CS. they were like some friends of a friend's. i like the idea

my first official CS experience was Sep 2010 in Belgium :)

in 2011, my friend Tammy and I made a 40-day round trip in europe we met some great hosts in:
Istanbul@ Turkey
Antalya@ Turkey
Athens@ Greece
Verona@ Italy
Amsterdam@ Netherlands
Paris@ France

*** please DOn't bother message me if you are looking for 'something fun'. Couchsurfing is not about banging your couch surfer!

Interests

FOOD! I LOVE FOOD! i would try anything! well i guess i am not a typical asian, i dont care for rice.

Languages and culture! i love to hang out with people from other countries. we talk about how we do things in out way, how they say something in their language. i never get tired talking about this kinda stuff :D

watching TV craps... i can spend all time watching friends, two and a half men over n over again. snack and chill, eat and sleep... being lazy and unproductive lol

i always wanted to learn a music instrument. i used to learn guitar but i was forced to give up because i had to study overseas. since then i have never touched a guitar and totally forgot how to play one. thats sad!

going to beaches, going to clubs...

funny thing, i really love to work. i work in a restaurant as a waitress. i just love deal with food and customers! i guess that y i get a lot of tips cuz i am always happy at work :D

fashion perhaps? but i am not a fancy luxury brand kinda girl. i like to look, but i dont like to buy. i mean i am still a student, my parents are still supporting me! it just doesnt make any sense some people could spend their allowance in a foolish way. i rather be a simple self, i dont need big brands to booze my confidence.

Music, Movies & Books

Music? i like music but to be honest i dont care enough to remember the singer, the lyrics... i just let the music play and chill :) i like all kind of music though...

havent read a book under free will :) i prefer walking outside, hang out, talk to people and experience... novels, articles are just shutting me down. well i love talking to people so they could share their stories with me :)

i guess i am just a simple person that might be too shallow? shamed to admit that i am actually going to university but i rare read a book! :(

Teach, Learn, Share

* cooking
wanna learn at least a dish from different cuisines

one thing on my bucket list:
"make a local dish for a person who is from that place and blow him/her away!"

** languages
learning Turkish only because i feel like it :D

able to teach Cantonese, a dialect of chinese
anyone who are interested in learning Chinese, this is not my first language but i still can manage to give a little hand :)
