About Me


The most important thing is to be happy


I am currently living a nomadic life, whilst studying on the side and looking for a new career/adventure. In the meantime, I may be home in Norwich, or exploring for a month or two in another country. Turkey was amazing having been there in May for a month. First travels since the past two years and what a relief to go back to normality. Hope to see some of you people in 2022 and beyond!!!

About ME!!

Born and bread in Norwich England of Chinese origin. Taught English for a year in Tokyo, worked in Hong Kong and now back in the UK. I'm hoping to meet like-minded people who enjoy: concerts,cafes, foreign films, meeting ppl, travel, and dancing. The usual I guess. People who like to have a good laughs and also stay genuine.


Take a chance in life. If u try, you have 50% chance, if you don't, u have no chance what so ever.
