Host German & French native speaker , to practice my German & French
I put my life into categories : 1~20 years and 21~40 years . My first 1 ~ 20 years , i studied in schools , dreaming a lot . Then my 21 ~ 40 years , i travel , work , sing , concert , performance . I am now 40 years old , these days i think myself what is my next JOURNEY ??? " my 41 ~ 60 years old " ???. i ENJOY this kind of THINKING and TRAVELLING inside my mind . In italian " VIAGGIARE IN SE STESSOâ , to think of my my life that i had lived in the past years, the peoples , things ,that i have seen,met and done .
I love foreign languages but now i try hard to learn German as i plan to move to Germany , and i wish to host guest , those are German native speaker then i could practice my german .
I like cooking , and mostly my host like me to cook for them instead of singing of playing guitar . And for this reason , now i can cook quite some delicious malay food ..
Recently , i love scotch whisky recently , i dont know why , may be i am older . Some years ago i loved red wine , but now changed .
I normally enjoy myself alone at home , watching movie , playing piano and internet . Sometimes I don't not go outside for few days , remain at home no speaking , unwilling to hear phone ringing .
I learn foreign language pronounciation through singing as well , through learning a folk song or pop song .I used to learn folk of Chinese,English,Malay,Italian,Spanish,Ukraine,French,Russian,Swiss German,Japanese,Korean,Indonesian,Latin,Hebrew.I found " SWISS GERMAN " is very DIFFICULT to sing . I think i almost surrender for it.
I am an opera singer and opera lover,play classical guitar and piano , and teaching italian language and working with italian embassy in Kuala Lumpur in Italian language programming .
I love opera , every year in nov , dec and jan , I go purposely to Berlin to listen operas . Even I fond of baroque opera but in Berlin each year , i listen at least once Mozart's " Die Zauberfloete " - The Magic Flute . Since 2003 I have been Berlin for 7 times . Berlin is like my second home .
I like snow , and enjoying walking on snow , i like the sound of my shoes stepping on snow "KRACK,KRACK SOUND" and enjoying to feel , touch the snow when snow falling . But UNFORNATELY in Malaysia there is NO snow .
I try to make myself whatever possible to enjoy my daily living.i think Bad also a day Good also a day , and i prefer to choose the good day.i have these alway flash in my mind : " what actually i am thinking in my mind at the moment i am dying "
