About Me

Let go the attachments and possession of materials, peace and happiness will be always with you. It set you a true freedom. This is my motto.


1. World is too small to connect with people but too big to explore. Life is too short but too long at the same time, it's not measurable but to live in the present moment.

2. Less is more.
Less desire gives a more and higher quality of life. Less shopping creates more space at home to enjoy. Less sightseeing gives more time to know the locals and culture. Less anyway creates more high quality time.

3. Open and flexible
Now I live in the moment and I am always open to any culture without judgement. It gives me opportunity to learn constantly.


I am running businesses based in Hong Kong while exploring new places to live. Currently falling in love with Melbourne and decided to settle here until the universe calls me to somewhere else.

I love nature and people at the same time !! Nature gives me a Shelter and people give me love. Complicated person and also simple. Well, i am a typical Gemini. easygoing, openminded, adventurous, logical, positive.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love CS. I love the way of traveling with CS experience. Stay with locals, make friends with locals and know more of less known for travellers. Travelling is about connection of people ! World is just too small!


I couch surfed a lot when I was in Europe for 8 months. I met wonderful people through couch surfing which makes me become an openminded person and shaped today's me. Couch surfing makes my travel experience more unique and memorable. Now, I would like to contribute back to CS world!
