Music, Movies, and Books

I like films that discribe people's life and what they think, what they think is important. My favorite are The motorcycle diaries, my life without me, the little dancer, Into the wild, stealing beauty.
About music...I like Oasis, Radiohead...but I am not keen on music very much.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went to Greece by myself, it was the first time for me to travel overseas by myself. That time I just started to learn English, so my English was very poor. Also I can't speak local language. However local people were very kind, I didn't have any problem there. It happened the same anywhere too. I'm so impressed with those kind people!

Teach, Learn, Share

I like textile. A couple of years ago I re-entered university and learning textile art currently. If I have oppotunity, Id love to visit many small villeges in Asia (probably not only in Asia later) and learn local tribe's dyeing method.
