About Me


Live My Life To The Fullest !!!


G'day everyone, thanks for checking out my page. Pretty much I am an all around guy, I can be funny, I can be annoying (this happens rarely), I can be optimistic, pessimistic, upset, happy... But most of the time I just like to keep it cool, I like all sorts of outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, running and mountain climbing. I don't live in regret, enjoy life every second, day by day! That's my motto. There are a few things that I strive towards in all facets of my life: honesty, genuineness, and reliability. I believe that when you abandon these qualities is when you truly become untrustworthy.
Born and grew up in China, settled down in Australia since 2003. I can strongly assert that I'm culturally diverse and internationally minded, absolutely love travelling, meeting new people and experiencing new things. I'm into both eastern and western cultures. It's so much fun to hang out with people from various background and countries. A long-time goal of mine is to travel the whole world and see as much of this great planet as I can!


1. Travelling is all about the people you meet along the journey.
2. To love everything about others, first love everything about yourself.
3. Do what makes you happy in life, no matter what, life is too short to be sad!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I attend and organise various CS events throughout the year. I also try to recommend to as many people as possible, for both hosting and surfing as a means to connect the world one step further, one day at a time!
I haven't surfed much yet, but I look forward to when I start travelling again!


I've met hundreds of CouchSurfers from all walks of life. I have never ever had any bad experience. So far so good :)


Sports play a big role in my life, it helps me get active so I can stay fit and healthy. I'm into squash, basketball, tennis, table tennis, badminton ......; squash and tennis being my favourite sports activities.
My other interests include travelling, social gatherings, food and wine, cooking, language and culture exchange, music, shopping......
