About Me


to continue what i am doing and more


I am pretty mellow, chill, and adventurous. Trying to live life to the fullest! Born in Hong Kong and moved to Toronto at a young age. Did an internship in Japan, which sparked my love for traveling. Now I am in the golden state of America.


If you are unsure whether you want or not.. just do it. (I hope there is no copyright infringement from saying that)

be adventurous, take risk and be rewarded

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies! ah.. movies. Love them. I always watch a movie with a very relax mind so I can pretty much sit through the best and also the worst movies out there. There are some really bad movies I have watched now I think about it.

Just picked up this amazing past time. I don't know why it took me this long to figure it out. Read a lot of memoirs .. but trying different genres. One of my favourite book is the kite runner, i highly recommend it. I hope i have more time to read but I am always too busy with random things. Whenever I have spare time you know i'll be thinking of reading!

I have natural passive listening skills that somehow carried over when listening to music. I do enjoy Rock, Pop, Metal, Dub Step i like them all.. . When people ask me what I listen I say the above. Is frustrate me sometimes that I can't name the songs or even the artist that I like during conversation. This is just a problem I cannot correct (but I am also not putting in any effort in to correct it).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Machu Picchu via Salkantay trail! almost all of Japan! Snowboarding up at Whistler! Summiting Mt. Whitney, the highest point of the lower 48 states! Biked 70miles to work starting at 3am. Everything I have seen is amazing! At the end of the day, it is really the people i went with that made these experiences so precious.

Seriously.. i think the most amazing thing i have seen is watching my dog swim for the first time!
