Making friends for life - or a lasting impression, at the least.
A bit too everything for my own good. I've made a lifestyle out of having one too many balls up in the air - not the warm kind. No concussions so far, at least that I can remember.
Addicted to books - I churn through them like a coke fiend in Vegas. The authors would be none too happy.
Documentaries over war films. Comedies over rom-com's.
Also, I like Ikea. That's pretty random, but I'm an inveterate hacker/designer so Ikea's a sort of graveyard of parts for new projects.
In work, I've taken the road less travelled. I'm lucky enough to have the opportunity to tackle problems without precedents.In life, I travel for people and architecture. Design comes in a close third.I've made a profession of describing the visual in plain English for over 6 years, but watching the sun rise behind Angkor Wat is as close as I've gotten to speechlessness.I hold the belief that I can get along with anyone if I'm willing to see things from their side.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
By jumping in head-first. There go the front teeth.
Just hanging out with surfers in Singapore. Recently hosted my first couchsurfer. Thankfully, I picked an incredible guy to start with.I got into it through my neighbor who introduced me to CS. Had read Brian Thacker's Sleeping Around a few weeks before that.She's also one of the most active members in Singapore. I must have met at least 20 surfers through her.
Guilty pleasures - Obscure/esoteric documentaries, reality TV (people are stranger than fiction), techno-babble (philosophy)Architecture/design - I could stare at architecture all day. Even bad architecture holds some perverse thrill.Board games - Settlers of Cataan (my new fave), Monopoly (studied the minutae of this game)New media - Blinking lights, videos, gamification, computer-mediated communication, digitized food, social food, social networksArt, culture, tech, startups, fashion, writing, dance, yoga
- board games
- adventure races
- rock climbing
Музыка, кино и книги
Tough - very toughBooks - Travel literature (I mean Biddlecombe and Potts, not Lonely Planet!), PJ O'Rourke (the early stuff), David Sedaris (I have a soft spot for a good wit)Films - Indie romantic comedies, ensemble casts, foreign films, pseudo-philosophical horror, pseudo-philosophical sci-fi, documentaries about anything
Классная вещь, которую я сделал(-а)
Completed a half marathon, and two adventure races.Taught myself InDesign overnight.Won two Startup Weekend competitions.Used to lead a climbing group weekly in Singapore.The one I remember best was climbing in Krabi and hanging off the side of a rock wall with the sea stretching into the horizon. All I thought was, I could have died right then - and I would have regretted not having told the guy I was dating how much I loved him. That was really a change of perspective!And canoeing - had a crazy one in Singapore getting from one end to the other. A big disaster not to check the tide schedule that day :-)
