About Me

# 1)Before you send me a msg, please read my profile and know my name. Do not call me THERE or just say HEY. Please mention my name, I think it is a respect. :)
2) I DO NOT host male couch-surfers, but I am willing to meet up.
3) Please introduce yourself a bit to me and tell me why you want to stay with me before you make the request. ( My place is not a free hotel for you.)


Survive in KL for a year.


Hello there,

I am Mabel from Taiwan. I have lived in Russia for two years in total for both study and work. For the past two years I have lived in Ireland, just moved to KL, Malaysia a month ago, will probably be here for a year and will move back to Ireland. But who knows? Life is uncertain, isn't it? :P
I have traveled a lot and have met many amazing people through CS, I haven't used CS for a while since I was busy working, and now just decided to come back to meet more gorgeous people!


This big world is everybody`s home, we were just born in different parts of this earth. I was born in Taiwan, but it doesn't mean that Taiwan is the most suitable place for me to stay in. I am traveling around the world and finally I will find my place to stay in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

from Couchsurfing people are more open-minded. So I would like to have some talk and walk with those people when I am abroad or at home in Taiwan to have a good time or share some cool, interesting stories!:D


Music,books,adventures,films,pets, languages....

You can say sometimes I am a nerd, I love languages! I love to talk to people with their native language, it makes us closer!:)

I love animals especially dogs!!!

Love watching movie, but I have a problem that I can not remember the name of the movies or the actors, I just enjoy watching them.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I love all kinds of music!:) It depends on my mood. And I like to dance when the music is on. Love music festivals!

Movies: the newest movie that I watched was La La Land. And I love it. It made me cry a lot. :P

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Kyrgyzstan alone and met many people from Couchsurfing. Before I went to Kyrgyzstan, to be honest, I was pretty scared. But so far Kyrgyzstan is the country which amazed me the most! People are super nice and friendly! They helped me a lot, treated me like we are old friends! I will never forget about those people! Since that time, I know the meaning of traveling for me is PEOPLE! Beautiful scene of the country can not attract me, but the people of the country can make me stay.

Teach, Learn, Share

What I can teach you:
1) I was a Mandarin Chinese teacher in Moscow, Russia, so I am sure I can give you a simple introduction of Mandarin Chinese!

2) I LOVE to cook, especially when I am living abroad. I got my cooking skills when living in Russia. :P I can cook Taiwanese/Chinese and Thai food pretty well and some Russian food!

3) I can share my traveling stories with you. ;)
