About Me

CURRENT MISSION

journey around Southeast and Central Asia and hopefully South Asia

ABOUT ME

I've been working as a campaigner at various Environmental NGOs in China and SE Asia.

Right now I am able to do what I do best - being a flâneur and a gawker.

PHILOSOPHY

Ars longa, vita brevis.

"We have art - lest we perish of the truth." - Friedrich Nietzsche

"东海西海,心同理同” - 陆象山

"怎么用這令人痛苦的混雜,當一座橋梁?" - Anne Cheng 程艾蘭

"A man of soul where the struggles of his own conscience and consciousness produced his political actions rather than the reverse."

Joseph L. Levenson on Liang Ch'i-ch'ao

“Elsewhere is a negative mirror. The traveler recognizes the little that is his, discovering the much he has not had and will never have.” -Italo Calvino

「人生は一行のボオドレエルにも若かない」 - 芥川龍之介

"The Cynic's habit was the same as a monk's and with the same virtue." - diderot
