About Me


To spend my remaining days living anywhere in the world but England


A sociable, creative soul with a thirst for life and learning Mandarin Chinese as well as a hunger for travel, and Sashimi :D

NB. If you speak Mandarin Chinese I am far more likely to say yes to your Couch Surfing request.



The only things you cannot do in life are the things you tell yourself cannot be done. (Am currently trying to learn Mandarin Chinese in Cantonese speaking Hong Kong. A tall order perhaps, but impossible? No I hope not! :P)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Wanna show people the joys of Hong Kong


Have hosted a few really nice people at mine in Hong Kong and had a couple of very good experiences surfing in Philippines. As for my first couch surfing experience. I was once woken up and propositioned by a prostitute while sleeping on the couch in a hotel lobby in Budapest :P Does that count as a couchsurfing experience? Ha ha!


If music be the food of love? Play on!
