About Me

Summer 2015: in Brazil from July - end of August!

Rule #1 of life. Do what makes YOU happy. :))

One day I will find the right words for this, and they will be simple. I am constantly changing as I'm in a perpetual state of discovery thus, I am a different me every new day.

I love spontaneity, new experiences and new people.
I fancy intellectuality, human kindness and mind-boggling ideas.
I try to always live outside the box.
Always fascinated, always curious and I love to learn about new things.
The idea of simplicity, the simple life and meeting nice, kind, happy people makes me happy. :)

For me, imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, the unknown and new draws me. And, it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than to be absolutely boring. I like nonsense, it wakes up my lazy brain cells, and that, fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

"It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life."

“I think that we are like stars. Something happens to burst us open; but when we burst open and think we are dying; we’re actually turning into a supernova. And then when we look at ourselves again, we see that we’re suddenly more beautiful than we ever were before!” - C. JoyBell C.

"We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." - Dr. Seuss.

p/s: I currently, live in Kursk, Russia, and I shall be here until 2016+. I'm taking my medical course here. Occasionally, every summer, I'd fly back to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

PHILOSOPHY

"One must have chaos in oneself in order to give birth to a dancing star." (Nietzsche)

"It is better to regret because you have done something than to regret you haven't done it."

"“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.
- William W. Purkey

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone."
