ABOUT ME

I'm an easy going and cheerful girl who loves to smile a lot:) love art and design n traveling forever i would say. looking for any new friends from all over the world as i'm so keen on exchanging culture and every little thing with friends!

I respect the tradition and history of all countries in the world. Please please give me a change to listen to precious yours:)

"GODDESS OF HUMOUR". This is how my friends call me. Because I always tell lame jokes and gags (Well I know it's not funny at all sometimes). *Cough* In spite of the title, I am still serious and respectful!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was introduced by my high school friend and I'm addicted till now

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I joined CS almost 4 years ago. Honestly CS really gave me many unforgettable memories :) CS definitely NOT means free hospitality for me, but a very unique cultural exchange experience!

Macau- i seldom host ppl in Macau since I live with my family. So most of the time I show people around and gather/chill out:) I have only hosted one girl from Taiwan here. This is both our first cs experience!

London- I lived alone in London that's why I hosted people quite often there. Sometimes I only hanged out with them if I were busy with school work. To host people is really amazing!

Hong Kong - Up to now I have hosted over 40 people in HK! Cherish each chance since these people are really lovely:)

Others- When I travel outside I always send a cs request to meet the local people there. It is really impressed that people are so keen and patient! All we say about is TRUST:) that's why I love cs so much! Thank you for all those who showed me around and hosted me:) love you all!

Interests

art and design, music and of course Kareoke!:) I'm so into cooking since I moved to Europe, but don't ask for me to cook for you as I dont want my lovely guests/hosts got poisoned! (kidding, my pleasure to cook my guests Chinese/Portuguese fusion food!) lol

Start recording some personal memories of the local culture between cities nowadays with regardless of photography, illustration or any other kind of design approach.

Am a big fan of New media art, Typography and Graphic Design!
