I was born in Hong Kong and have taught business subjects and English for more than 20 years in secondary schools there. I quitted my job more than 8 years ago and have travelled to 43 countries. I enjoy traveling very, very much! In addition to sightseeing, I am also very interested in understanding the culture of foreign countries and cooking Chinese dishes for foreigners as well as sharing the Chinese culture with them. Moreover, I would like to gain experience on working in animal or organic farms and being a baby, pet or house sitter, etc.
From 2016 onwards, I have been a volunteer for many times in animal farms, fruit farms, organic farms, restaurants, hostels, a local tour company and families in Iceland, Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, Faroe Islands, etc. For details, please refer to the feedbacks from my previous hosts in my personal profile below.
I got my BA (Hons) Degree in Business Studies (major: Banking) and teachers' training certificate (major: Commercial subjects; minor: English) in Hong Kong. I have been a teacher for more than 20 years in Hong Kong. I gained experience on teaching business subjects upto high school level and English upto junior secondary school level. Besides, I am used to and interested in communicating with teenagers. Moreover, I am familiar with organizing activities. Furthermore, I can manage clerical work.
Being a Christian, I have been a volunteer of my church. So, I had experience on charity work.
Since I do my own housework everyday, I am familiar with cleaning, cooking and shopping.
As my parents were vegetable farmers and we had a garden as well, I gained a bit experience on farming and gardening when I was young. I found such work very interesting!
My family kept two dogs when I was young. l loved playing and looking after them very much! I think I can manage to be a pet sitter.
Although I am single and do not have any children of my own, I sometimes helped my sisters and brothers look after their children. I loved babysitting and child care very much!
Before my parents passing away, I always looked after them. Hence, I got hands-on experience on taking care of elderly.

Other than sightseeing during my trips, I am eager to understand the culture of foreign countries. Therefore, I would like to stay in host families and do what the local people do.
