- I love sports. I used to play competitive basketball way back my Primary and Intermediate School days. Other sports i enjoy playing are: Swimming, Badminton, Softball, Teeball, Kickball and of course Volleyball. I like joining leagues. I am competitive by nature. (Not in a bad way!)
- I love traveling. Completing an around the world tour by 30 is on my bucket list. :) I think i'm pacing my self well at this aspect.
- I'm a THRILL seeker. I like adrenaline rushing through my vains. (Swimming with the whale-shark, Sky diving, trek to Everest base camp are on my bucket list!)

I'm an easy going person. I don't really judge people based on looks or race. I like meeting and sharing stories with anyone. I like people who i can openly converse anything under the sun. I'm not really the pretentious type. What you see is what you get. :) I'll appreciate intellectual conversations though. I like it when i learn from other people and they also learn from me too.
I have this Knack of exploring things i have done/seen. I like to see at least a portion of how beautiful this world is. :)

Music, Movies, and Books
I love movies, music and books. I personally don't mind any genre's as long as they are entertaining.
Movies: I enjoy action filled movies over dramatic films. I also enjoy mind-fuck movies.
Books: I generally read anything. From Marketing/ Business books down to Novels. Reading is my before sleeping activity.
Music: I enjoy listening to Alternative/ Acoustic tunes. I'm a big fan of Electronic and Trance Beats. :)
Teach, Learn, Share
I learned that the most dangerous risk is spending your life not doing what you want on the bet that you can buy yourself freedom to do it later. I can't take that risk. :D will be living life to the fullest!
