About Me


Seeing the world. Seeing all the beauty this world has to offer or be found.


I'm a quirky l'il Asian who's not very Asian. I was born in Hong Kong but was raised in Vancouver. I see myself more Canadian than Chinese. I spent two years living in Japan and already consider Japan my second home.

I love my job but would like to apply my wit to it one day! Among my friends, I'm known for my quick, witty and very frequently ahem dirty comebacks and puns. Perhaps I'm in the wrong profession?! Actually no. I work with some of the greatest people and I can absolutely be my silly self at work.
Hm, more info about me...? I'm an animal and nature lover. I volunteer for the SPCA and film festivals in my free time. I sometimes do robot speak at work and I'm still struggling to master my British accent. I suck. I need an accent coach.


Follow your heart but don't be too stupid.
Do whatever pleases you as long as it doesn't harm others.
Sport hunters suck!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd tagged along to a CS meeting with a friend who's been on CS for a while, that's how I found out about CS.
I'd met up with someone who searched and found me on CS.
I like meeting people and learning about them and their experiences.


I'm interested in languages, photography, music, documentaries, cultures, philosophy, psychology, architecture, non-fiction books, knowledge and anything creative.
My interests are pretty much all over the place.
