About Me


feed my culture addiction


I am a Chinese Canadian who used to live in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

From Abu Dhabi, my partner(see his CS profile) and I took an extended trip half way around the world by motorcycle: from the Middle East to Europe, to South America, through Central America to North America. We have concluded our 14-month trip in Toronto, Canada (my second and sweet home city), where we lived for about three years. I moved to Malmö, Sweden in July 2014 with my partner's work.


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Men carrying heavy loads on their bare shoulders walking up the thousands of stair steps to get to the top of Mount Tai in China.
