  • Description

    Experienced traveller (been to >40 countries in the world) and looking for a new way to experience the local culture. Previously an enthusiastic couchsurfer pre-COVID. Native in Cantonese, fluent in Mandarin and English. I was a member of the local charity club (Leos Club) when I was young and involved in all kinds of volunteer work from care of the elderly in nursing home to fundraising.

    I believe that travelling is not to stay in the resort or shopping mall but to mingle with the local and be part of them. It’s always fascinated to learn about the world through the eyes of the local people. I guess the little curiosity in my heart to venture is my motivation to keep travelling. I am super independent and a quick learner so will be a great help to you! And in returns I would love to hear your story and share the view of your country through your eyes! I have stayed in a volunteer house in Hebron (West Bank, Palestine) to help maintenance and sharing stories. I am also a keen photographer so will post you the photos I took after the trip!

  • More details about your skills

    Language is definitely my strength being a trilingual (Cantonese, Mandarin and English). I am a very good teacher due to helping my mother to teach piano when I was young and I am very good with kids and animal. Also good with basic internet work and a super good housechore helper after living independently for 10 years. I am a keen photographer as well so all photos request welcome!
