About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finish my grad school study asap and relocate!

ABOUT ME

I am from HK where is the MOST crowded, expensive, fast paced place in the world! I admit that I am not the type of person who should live in HK so I decided to move out to the other side of planet on my own. (Don't get me wrong, HK is a fun place to travel though!) I was an exchange student in Texas, US in 2009-2010 and I moved to Beijing in 2010 after my graduation where I worked for 2 years! I have been living in Vancouver since 2013 after my work life in Hong Kong drove me nuts. I am more the enjoying life type person but I do try hard to do something which I think will worth my time and sometimes I will try to walk the abnormal way. I believe after all I will prove to others I am not doing something stupid or crazy.

I never feel like I explore enough about myself and my surroundings, I believe meeting people is a great way to learn and one will learn from others beyond their imaginations. I am BIG on understanding and analyzing human behavior and way of thinking and from that I want to help others with their mental health situations. I try to impact people around me for now and hopefully in the future I can do something bigger.

I am a very outgoing talkative person. I like travelling a lot and my passion started from my trip to US, I have been to 20 countries so far but there is still a long list of countries I want to check out. Travel brought me a lot of surprises and challenged myself mentally; I met awesome people on my way and now I have accumulated tons of interesting stories to tell! I love when you click well with someone, you just feel like you are never tired to talk for long long time! I am open minded and I respect other people ways of thinking , I don't have to agree with everything one says but I am open to chat about it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My friend told me about this site when we traveled together in US! I was skeptical to begin with but since then, after meeting so many awesome hosts and hanging out with so many random strangers, my mind has totally changed and I find this the best project ever! I can find people with similar views and personality here! Building a life long relationship is one of the best things I desire!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The journey started when I was an exchange student in US and we traveled around US:) We found 3 hosts and the experiences were just unforgettable, I met many locals and started to discover the beauty of traveling! Now I have couch surfed in quite a few places including Europe, Asia and North America, I would say 95% of experiences are good (or amazing) and I have built some life long friendship but I really want to warn some guys please stop treating CS as a site to pick up gals , you guys may ruin the reputation of CS and it is not a cool thing to do, please behave!

Interests

Travelling!!! Can't express in words how great travel is! I want to influence more people to discover the beauty to travel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I guess I somehow survived many desperate situations and I now have friends from around the world, I am very grateful for it.

Teach, Learn, Share

What HK/ Chinese people think, act and believe! If you are willing to learn, I can teach one of the hardest languages in the world-Chinese (Cantonese is even harder than Mandarin, there are 9 tones)! Teach you awesome ways to do calculation very fast! I will share my travel experiences and my foodie journey around the world. I am a learner! Learn your language, your way to live, your travel experience! The ways to make you happy!

I enjoy very deep conversations about life in general.
