Mr Chiam knows how to teach piano very well. He's organised, clear in his instruction, methodical and patient. He's also joyful and positive.

Host Family in fremantle (airbnb.com)

We really enjoyed hosting Zhi Bin. He was full of enthusiasm, full of stories of his every day adventures in Fremantle. It was nice getting to know him. He's friendly, gentle, funny, kept up after himself, very easy to communicate with. He left the place in perfect condition upon departure. I particularly miss how he connected with me especially his inclination to food, travel, and creative arts. Zhi Bin, thank you so much for choosing our home and extending your stay. You are absolutely fantastic. Feel free to return anytime!

more About Me

What I love to experience in travels and life: Great friends, new experiences, fresh perspectives, learning and sharing languages, history, skills, cuisines, having great times, good relaxation, with plenty of fun and joy.

I enjoy little pleasures in life like: coffee, good laughs, textures, scents, tea, preparing food, tasting things, siestas after lunch, feeling a smile spread across my face, working hard and the relaxation that comes after, sips of wine, sounds of music, colours etc.
