About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Look for a job?

ABOUT ME

Born in Hong Kong, brought up by my grandmother, who comes from Suzhou, studied in a protestant primary school, then in a catholic secondary school, went to Germany for a year, and finally back in a baptist university. I myself is like my city, always a mixture of something!

PHILOSOPHY

I admire great personalities like Albert Schweitzer and Jane Goodall. They don't tell you how to be good, but show you how it is possible to lead an ethical life. Every time when I get lost, they give me new hopes.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think meeting locals is always the best way in familiarizing oneself with a new culture.

1, 2, 3 and cheers! An easy click before a landmark is just not my type of traveling. I enjoy people sharing with me their stories and I shared mine :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed in Estonia, Poland, Hungary and Austria. WONDERFUL experience. And what an amazing concept. Our world will be better if we know each other better.

Interests

I'm very interested in history. Except reading books, I also watch documentaries and most importantly travel myself in order to enrich my historical knowledge.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Ingmar Bergman, Fritz Lang, Jean Renoir, Fellini, French New Wave...

Books: Hermann Hesse, Bertolt Brecht and many many modern Chinese authors

Music: My favorite is Bach! His music cleans the dirt in your soul.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Unforgettable exchange year in Berlin! I was then hosted by a German family. My host brother was very sporty. I tried many sports which I had never dared try before. One may not feel the change immediately, but that year has definitely changed my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn words that are unique in your language.
And I can teach you to how to bargain in Cantonese!
