I believe very much in karma.
I'm quirky and I love to laugh,and laugh hard.
Sometimes I ask a lot of questions, sometimes I'm very quiet and I prefer to be a social observer.

Enjoy history,read encyclopedias/wikipedia,know some oddball trivia
rub statue's belly or poke its nose,hug trees sometimes, wear colourful india pants,patisserie patisserie patisserie,love to eat,love eggs

I especially like asking how couples meet each other. (I used to read a lot of romance novels)

What kind of party animal am I? I'm a koala, I like to sit in my tree and look from afar and chew some leaves :)


If you think you have enough pictures,take some more! You'd probably never have the chance to come back again.

I always have faith in people to be good.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you
because what goes around comes around :)

There's always tomorrow!

Dont live with hate because you spend your energy hating someone who doesnt even think of you :p

People come and go, friends leave footprints on your heart <3

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a voracious reader! I read a lot of fantasy books, travellers' blogs,
I only pay to watch explosions on the big screen haha
everything else I wait for it to come to TV.
I like BBC's Sherlock Holmes,HBO's Game of Thrones and Rome,AMC's Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, Poirot
Other films I enjoy are foreign films, a lot of historical ,epic, or fantasy films,
I try to watch foreign films but it's hard to do so when the only ones that come here are HongKong kungfu/historical movies, Thai/Japanese/ Korean horror (I can't watch horror movies because my imagination wont stop there)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Walking into a glass door. I silenced a wedding reception for a whole 5 seconds
2. Niagara Falls ,it's definately one of the things in the world that can make your jaw drop and you feel so little and insignificant to the raw power of Nature.
3.The biggest candle I've ever seen in Caterbury that marked St Thomas' burial spot. I like how a candle symbolised the existence of a man and it will stay lit forever in remembrance of St Thomas.
4. Pink dolphin! My brother came home with a picture together with a pink dolphin. It was the biggest reason why i went to Singapore :p
