About Me

CURRENT MISSION

In 2011 December, I had a dream of my future wife. Woke up and went to a fortune teller, she told me she will be a foreigner. So now i am searching around the world for my Wife

ABOUT ME

I'm kinda of hybrid between the english and chinese culture.I studied in a chinese primary school and then my parents threw me into an English based school- Victoria school, for my secondary school life. I almost drowned from the start and struggled adapting initially.But well i made it and now i looked back and realised i have to thank my parents instead :)

PHILOSOPHY

You have to appreciate life first, before life will return the favour )))

it is the people that makes your trip worthwhile not the destination

I realised its true that i rediscover my own country again when i participate in CS and guide people around, there are many places where i didn't bother to find out or go if not for CS. Oh well haha~

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

ALL my experiences with CS has been awesome so far, lets hope it keeps this way! )))

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i mostly can't host as i live with my parents whom are more conservative. But i do try to guide people around Singapore to find cheap and good food :)

Interests

cooking! Eating! Travelling!

i used to be a classic tourist and go after all the scenic stuffs.

But now i just go to places, meet up and talk to local people over tea/coffee. Best of all stay with local people to experience the real local life.

Music, Movies & Books

i listen to all kinds of music including trance,chinese songs,k pop, english oldies, rock and many more.

Lately i am into Dance sets from Kaskade and Kapslap

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I spent a month in Egypt when i was 20.I took a cab in Cairo which cost 46EGP and did not have small change. I only had a 100EGP note and was expecting the driver to take it and not returning me the change. To my surprise, the driver just said habibi, meaning(lover/Darling) in Arabic with a smile, and allowed me to leaveIt was one of the those moments that i will always remember. even though it may seem normal to you..

In 2012 , 2 months travelling from Turkey-->Georgia->Azerbaijan-->Iran-->Jordan-->Israel was definitely memorable and life changing )))

Living for half a year in Istanbul, Turkey for my exchange in 2012 has been an awesome experience. Met many people from around the world. It was also when i was there, i discovered what is my passion in life( Learning Russian!) and how i should live life )))

I am now teaching English to my colleague who is 60 years old, sitting next to me in the office. Whats your excuse? )))
