About Me

I love to dance, travel and, meanwhile, meet great people :)
Can maybe host in Richmond BC May 15-June 15th
You must message me first if you are choosing to follow me!
I am somebody to say I learn something new and exciting everyday.
As of 2015, I have been a Cantonese-speaking volunteer helping Vancouver's Chinatown seniors. Besides my parents and me, my sister and my extended family live in my hometown, Hong Kong -- a city within the Pearl River Delta.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Only good experiences so far.

2010 summer: I went to NYC and stayed with my late host Don in the Bronx. It was a life-changing and invigorating experience! I miss you Don. He has passed on now.
2011 summer: Then I stayed with Seraphin in Portland. That was the one funnn cf house :)
2011: Portland and Seattle
2012: Hosted my first surfer Pierre :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending one day at Voice For the Voiceless Camp by the Xwisten River was very inspirational. I was fortunate to visit and speak with Christine Jack and her family about the importance of the camp as a site of both resistance against harmful logging practices and also a site of healing through land reoccupation. Witnessing the water stewardship of the St'at'imc people, I thank the few people of St'at'imc ancestry I had met, for allowing me to be on their territory.
