About Me

Hang in there~~

It is quite difficult for me to describe myself in any language. One thing I am pretty sure about me is that I have not grown up yet.
I had spent several years in a few foreign countries for my master degree and work. Living in foreign country made me lonely sometimes though, overall it was suitable for me. I could be more of myself and less stressful there, and I liked it.
Contradictory enough, what I have done for me was totally opposite.
I made decision to go to medical school again in Korea, and it made me feel like being stuck in the long and dark tunnel. Finally, I got my license and degree and just started to work... uhmm my life is still like a roller coaster and I am still worrying about where I should stay.
When my life was too harsh on me I tried to find a nice and warm beach, romantic comedies, genuine people and yummy vegan food…. these make me smile.
Living as vegan means a lot to me. Unfortunately, it is kind of a barrier to get along with people in Korea. I hope I could meet more friends through CS. *^^*

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have surfed several times and lucky enough I met several lovely hosts. I have hosted only one time since my life has been chaos.
Anyhow I love to meet people from all over the world. ^^

Surfed two times in Singapore and Indonesia in January of 2013, those were so sweet and awesome!!
2013 summer, I surfed in London, few cities in France, those were also nice and warmhearted!!!
2014 winter, I was hosted in Boracay!
2015 winter and summer I was hosted in Mexico for a long time~~ During that long holiday I faced horrible liar host family and huge fraud. Nevertheless, I met more of good and kind people at the same time. It is such a shame that kind of bad people exist in couchsurfing website. I learned very painful and expensive lesson from that. However, it doesn't change my personality nor my nature that I love to meet people and trust people without any doubt or guard, truly enjoy living with people I met.


Travel, learning languages, movies, medical dramas, traditional medicine, vegan cooking(I am quite poor at it though), yoga, meditation
