In my free time, I enjoy cycling, cooking, baking, … I was also a soccer player (best record: 2nd place in the high school soccer league of Fuzhou City) for a long period before I got serious back injury. I’m also a crazy fan of FC Barcelona and many KPOP girls’ groups and solos (sounds strange but their music make my day :p).
