About Me


If you dont go, you never know...


+++ YA ESTOY EN DF +++

August 2011, life back to big city. D.F. la gran ciudad de México!
...lets see how it works out!

Oct 2010-July 2011, studied español for about 8-9ms in a small city Colima in Mexico.

7yrs in Shanghai, the biggest and most excited city in China. Worked as a merchandiser also a Chinese teacher( Chinese as a second language). have travelled to most places in China and Southeast Asia.

always wanna to see/know/discover more places/cultures.. trying to always be curious and passionate.

typical Sagittarius.


cherish what you have and try your best to gain what you want.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offered my couch in Shanghai,China and in México, went to CS meeting every now and then and hang out with CSers.
Also started to surf at other people's places and view the city from a different view than outsider.


Always bring unexpected surprises!!

I have met some super cool CSers, of course there are dodgy people everywhere, but the majority here is surpring nice people. They restore my faith about sharing and give me different views about many things.

Been friends with those surfers who chose to stay in Sh, travelled with my first host in México when he came to visit me, and also host others who once host me, being skype, fb, postcard, mail with some CSers..

If you just want to find a free place to crash, please go find other people.


travelling (for sure!),
photographing (not yet get a DSLR though),
reading (it's a lifelasting hobby),
cooking (some people said Im a great chinese chef :))
dancing (one thing you never need to be good to enjoy, one thing you will always enjoy~~)

Music, Movies, and Books

too many movies...
The big blue(le grande blue)
Forrest Gump
Mama mia
Six Feet Under(tv series)
Good morning headache
Fighting Club (book is interesting too)

all kinds of music: quiet ones and danceable ones. recently very fond of coldplay, jack johnson, cat steven and flo rida. roxette, beatles and faye wong are my favorites for years.

I love reading in general. there are some I read for many times:
The unbearable lightness of being-- Milan Kundera
Sputnik Lovers-- Murakami Haruki村上春树
100 años de soledad --GG Marquez
For whom the bell tolls-- Ernest Hemingway
晃晃悠悠-- 石康
The book of Illusions-- Paul Auster
The dog of Babel-- Carolyn Parkhurst
Fight Club
The Alchemist-- Paulo Coelho

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The travellers

Teach, Learn, Share

My knowledge about China/ México, and also some other places in China/ Southeast Asia.

Being a Mandarin teacher myself, may I can definitely help you with Mandarin studying. And after being in Mexico for 5years, if you wish, I can share my knowledge of Spanish with you( hablo bien mexicano;))

I like cooking, so maybe we can exchange ideas about it or try something together.

.... for me, I am curious to learn whatever anyone wants to teach me!
