About me

Hi there, I am Kalmarr from Hong Kong. I'm studying in a Taiwanese university. My English name is uncommon is it not? According to my father, my English name is ancient Irish which means "seafaring man", which corresponds with my Chinese name (克航). It was given to me by his business partner from Ireland when I was born.

My father is from Hong Kong and my mother is Taiwanese, so both Cantonese and Mandarin are my mother tongues. Because of the special atmosphere of learning in Hong Kong, I have mastered both Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese, also because of my passion for literature, I have mastered of both Modern and Classical Chinese.

Things are good when taken in moderation, therefore, I always appreciate various subjects writing with aesthetics and rationality. If you are a curious Chinese learner, no matter what level you are, I would love to meet you here, give you advice sometimes and share my interests (playing music, wine and food tasting, writing, baking, etc.) with you.

Cheers,
Kalmarr
