About Me


I'm a short British born chinese man.

Instagram: hakkatang

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

People I really like: Curious adventurous people, open minded & very friendly, open to anything and the people around them without so much prejudice. From these people I get motivation. I find with CS I can find more of these kind of people.


Hiking, hardcore adventures, diving, freediving, snorkelling, collecting nik-naks & random natural inanimate objects, movies mostly sci-fi, my kinda music, foodie & food lover/experimentalist & learning to cook ;P, Love my whiskey & drinking, fitness, and photography (with my Gopro)

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Ambient, Electronica and Post-Rock Music, like the band Hammock or Mogwai. Otherwise pretty open as long as it's not rapping or Chinese Opera.

Movies: Mostly Sci-fi/Action. I spend much of my time commuting so I watch many different TV shows to pass the time while traveling. Some my favourite examples of shows includes: Breaking Bad, Hannibal, House of Cards, Game of Thrones....etc

& Books: Not much of a reader because I'm very Dyslexic.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Road trip of Japan, hosted by my Japanese local CS friend. **"Mochan WISH CLUB"** Look this man up on CS!!

Nepal ~ Annapurna Circuit. (I get ask this many times) **If you want a trusted local tour operator for Nepal, Annapurna, Himalayas, EVB etc. Message "Hem Mugrati" in my friends list**

Otherwise always spoilt for seeking great adventures anywhere & everywhere ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I learn and experiencing whatever I can. Always seeking local knowledge & inspiration from people I meet and places I go.

I will be happy to help anyone who wants to improve their English speaking skills (British English).

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don't see myself as that person to show my appreciation by only exchanging "travel stories" or giving random gifts which you can already get like dried mangos. I take interest to the person that host me. I enjoy to spend time with my host and give fair exchange in hospitality however I can.

Countries I’ve Visited

Cambodia, China, Georgia, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Nepal, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

Hong Kong, United Kingdom
