About Me

I call both Hong Kong and Singapore my home countries - I feel most attached to my culture and heritage yet I am attached to the beautiful city I lived in for most of my life. I've just a degree in advertising and I've returned to Singapore to find that first job as an advertising creative.

Although I don't really keep track of the number of countries that I've been to, I do enjoy travelling quite a bit and immersing myself into an unfamiliar culture.

I'm friendly and open-minded so do drop me a message even if you just want to say hi!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was afraid of travelling on my own but when I did, I was very happy - it did wonders for my mental health. However, as a fresh graduate, I have a very limited budget and Couchsurfing can provide me with an affordable place to sleep at night while meeting people of different backgrounds. I would like to see more of the world through the eyes of a local resident.


I tend to be sporty, adventurous yet lazy at the same time.

In terms of sociability, I tend to be a little picky about who I am friends with but as long as you genuinely have an interest to connect with me, I am always happy to reciprocate the gesture. I do like a good cup of coffee and a chilled-out meal.
