About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to get a tech startup running by January 2015

hoarding gold to prepare for the rainy days

ABOUT ME

the autobiography will be out soon and it costs only $200 per volume.

after i have been becoming immigrant for so many years, half of my life to be exact, i have come to conclusion that home is where your heart and mind are, with good balance of reciprocity of needing people around you and you to them. moreover, it should be easy too, because looking back i have just realised, i spent so much time on preparing food, ironing clothes and washing dishes. :D

I like south east asia the best. Good cheap food, interesting diverse cultures and easy lifestyle.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

once I had been to this restaurant in Bangkok, where my little shrimps were still alive and jumping out from the pot. And the dish was tasty.

once in the back of microbus full of nursing students, all dressed in whites, in the Philippines that took the pain to tell me that i just got lost and needed to take the correct bus, that is the sign that they indeed should become nurses.

once in India, i was having my breakfast (after long queuing to get it and an in-house cook poured a yellow rice and curry into my bowl) when a camel passed by in front of my shared house, it turned camel is one of transportation means there. In India, seeing and living ordinary Indian lifestyle is an amazing thing I have done.

On the way to Amsterdam from Charleroi, there was a train workers' strike, so I teamed up to share a taxi with bunch of Italian tourists from Venice that spoke minimal English, I ended up in their boat house smoking weed that made me sick and crazy literaly. Spending Xmas and New Year in Amsterdam with the sounds of firecrackers everywhere as if you were in Gaza Strip is one of amazing thing I have done, I think.

Some of them I couldn't write here because they are illegal but parts of growing up. :D
