To live without regrets! Try everything cos you only live once!
SUP! Singaporean girl here currently doing my Masters in Germany!
I would love to travel the world and see all seven continents! I live in Asia, been to Europe, North America, South America and Oceania so I'd love to see the remaining 2! Yes, even the Antarctica! I love to meet new interesting people from all over the world. In Singapore, I am a student host to international students and also doing interactive part-time/ad hoc jobs like waitressing and giving tours to local and Japanese students alike!
Random facts about me/Things that make me special! are:
-I have a very high metabolism rate so I can eat up to 4-5 full meals a day and wouldn't gain a single gram.
-My experiences are strongly pegged to music and scents. I instantly recall memories with the pegged music or scent.
-I have to lie on my left side to sleep - something to do with being afraid of monsters and zombies under the bed when I was younger.
-I don't eat eggs! (GASP!) No, I'm not allergic to them or anything but I can't stand the taste of them. My earliest memories of avoiding them date back to kindergarten. When they served eggs for lunch, I would just skip it. I do, however, eat cakes and muffins or other products that contain eggs. Just no eggs alone, please!
Anyway, to sum my life up: because we only live once, I'm gonna make sure this life's worth it! (:
Do whatever you want in life as long as it makes you happy!

I used to be a bookworm as a kid and win all those nerdy who-read-50-books-this-semester prizes but not anymore now.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Tribal campfire at amphitheatre Thingstatte in Heidelberg, Germany
-Swimming in an ice cold waterfall in the wilderness of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
