About Me

Hey! My name is Irene. Currently living in Shanghai, China.

I am planning to go to Jakarta to see the Java International Jazz Festival in May and the Fuji Rock Music Festival in Japan. As you can see my travels are often related to music.

For me: I am a sports enthusiast and have worked for a sports brand company for over 5 years. My favorite sport is badminton and I have been playing it for almost ten years. I'm also a snowboarder. Because I was born in the northernmost part of China. It snows and is very cold there in winter.
I've been traveling alone for ten years and started traveling abroad alone in 2023. "Brave girl, enjoy the world!"
I love the sea and the beach and all nature. My dream life is to stay away from the Internet.

Some comments for the new girl at CS:
Try to find a female host at first.
Learn to say no, although I know it’s sometimes hard for people subordinate to power.
Don’t apply for a host that only accepts women. check the comments. You know what I mean.
Always have a plan B.

If you really care the first bad reference is from a guy named Younesse Jonas. Here is the story. I don't want to explain more.
The guy connected me Sep 9 and wishes me to host him. He didn't even check my profile. Because I emphasized that I can only host girls.
As a newcomer, I want to show enthusiasm. So we added WeChat and hoped to give him some help. Later he came to Shanghai and found other people to host him. He contacted me and told me that he had made an appointment with another couple but they had something to do and couldn't go." So I'm the plan B".
We had a meal together, In some restaurants in China, you need to pay first and then eat. Since this meal was not expensive, I decided to treat him to a meal.
Later we decided to go for drinks and kept drinking tequila and chatting. Quite happy here.
After paying(We each paid 450 RMB), he said he was overcharged by the bar. So the bar decided to call the police and check the CCTV. After being dealt with I left independently because I drank too much and didn't think this foreigner could take care of and protect me. I went to the emergency the next day because I had a stomachache after drinking too much.
And found that I lost my earring, I asked him and he said he had taken it away??? I knew he stayed in Shanghai for a week, but he didn't give it back to me until he left.
After some time we contacted again and I asked him if he was still in China. He said he went to Guangzhou. And said some ambiguous words. Hope we can go to the hotel next time he comes to Shanghai???
I asked him if he could write a reference for me. Because this is my first experience in CS. But he disappeared again and didn’t reply to my WeChat messages.
I was very angry so I wrote him a non-recommended reference. He started to take revenge on me. This is the whole story.
The last thing I want to say: FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! ESPECIALLY FUCK YOU! White trash!
