About Me




It's not so easy to just use simple words to describ a person, especially yourself.

How about I start with movies?
So far I watched about 500 movies. My favorite one currently is 'Annie Hall'. Woody Allen is the director I want to be if I have chance to direct a movie. Stanley Kubrick is the most talent director for me. I love 2001, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, Shining. Kubrick made different types of movies, and all of them are just great. Sci-fi, I'm a big fan of star trek, and not against star wars at all. The most excited moment I had last month was when I was standing at Spanish Square in Sevilla where was the location of 'Star Wars II', but it was pity since there was no R2 with me. Last few months, since I moved to Germany, I was watching movies from a German director 'Fatin Akin' who is one of my favorite german director.
About movies, there are too much to tell. Anyway, I'll be always happy if people talk movies with me. I think it is one of my unrealistic dreams to be a movie director.

Apart from movies, about myself, I'm quite open-minded, very easy-going, and like to talk with people. But sometimes, I also like to stay by myself to play simple music, paint some stupid pics or write some stories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Eating watermelon at 45 degree in the desert, that was really cool.

Swimming across the sea bay in Zadar, in the condition that I only could swim for one year, and didn't swim often, and didn't know how far I could swim. I didn't think too much, just did it, after finishing that, I realized that I can swim very long. It was amazing when you do something beyond your expection.
