About Me

CURRENT MISSION
I will be studying in Maastricht, the Netherlands since September 2015.

Long-term mission: walking on the ancient silk road from China to Europe...learning natural building...becoming a vagabond...

ABOUT ME

I have been living in HK since 2012 when I left my hometown, Chengdu for Hong Kong to further study law.

I like combining traveling with volunteer work (building or farming) together. I usually spent most of time doing volunteer work and spend remaining time exploring the attractions when I traveled abroad. I am very enthusiastic about the natural building techniques and I keep learning it from books and personal practice as well. When I volunteered and traveled, I met ppl from different cultures and we swap ideas as to traveling and life. I decline any rules imposed by this society but are not fit into my philosophy at all.

PHILOSOPHY

Changing what can't be accepted. Accepting what can't be changed.
Think before you speak. Read before you think. - Fran Lebowitz

I believe in the beauty of diversity.

Music, Movies, and Books

Actually, there is too much music, books and movies which I love so much in my life and in my future life. Now I just few of them--

Books:
朝花夕拾——鲁迅
Persepolis--Marjane Satrapi
‚ˆatma-graha我执-- 梁文道
Mapping Human Histoty - Discovering the Past through Our Genes by Steve Olson

Magazine: National Geographic

Movie: La meglio gioventù (The Best of Youth)

Documentary: The Silk Road, jointly produced by CCTV (China) and NHK (Japan) in the 70's -- One of impressive narration phrased as "The Silk Road begins in Chang'an and ends in Chang'an."

My best love melody: Kitaro's Silk Road - the theme music of the documentary

The list goes up as I grow up~

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiking from Johor Barhu to Malacca.
Helped building roundhouse in Chiang Dao, Thailand.
I hope I could experience more in the future!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Mandarin, Cantonese O(∩_∩)O and some basic sketch skills~
I can also talk about some Chinese history if you are interested in.

I hope someone would teach me advanced drawing techniques and designing (particularly in architecture)!
I also would like to learn anything about natural building and herb plantation.I am also dreaming of building my own tiny house on wheels!

I am sick of people who generalize a whole population of a country and label or judge an individual with stereotype. I always start to learn a country with its history. So I would be very happy that you could tell me some stories, which were or not written in history books and which were recorded or not by the world.

If I have an opportunity to re-select my major, I would choose architecture/geography / earth science...so talking about the earth and architecture (including natural materials) are welcome!
