About Me

Taiwan is NOT China.

I like to live a life full of varieties, love experiencing different foods, meeting new friends, trying fresh and new things. I love movies which let me experience someone's life in two hours.

Two cats have stayed with me for a long long time. I love them very much.

Hosted 5 surfers from 3 different countries - 2 Germans, 2 Chinese and 1 Japanese, at the same time.


I love Jazz music.

There is a Taichung Jazz Festival in October. I go to the festival every year and enjoy the live jazz music at the festival.

We could discuss about films, novels and jazz if you were interested.

I like taking walks, laying on field watching sky or going to cafe for a relaxing time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once bumped into a young couple with their babies in Kyoto, the babies were too little to walk so the couple carried them through the journey which made me feel sweet and warm.

What a lovely burden.

(I took the picture of them, and you may see it in my album.)
