About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To win international bingo!

ABOUT ME

There's so much I could tell you about myself, and so much you'll have to find out yourself.

But this is all you need to know for now -

OBVIOUS:
-10 fingers
-10 toes
-head full of hair

PERSONAL:
-Born in London - grew up in Perth
-50% British/German/Austrian, 50% Chinese/Malay - 100% Aussie
-A night time showerer (WARNING - I also take LONG showers);
-LOVE the beach and cooking;
-Chillaxed, friendly, interesting, random, fun

A 'FREE SPIRIT?':
-Before you ask me this question, please tell me what IS a free spirit?
-Is this socially, mentally, emotionally? Because I have no idea WHAT a 'free spirit' is.
-And do you describe yourself as a free spirit? If so -how and why? If not - why not?

RANDOM:
-Eaten bugs, tortoise, escargot, kangaroo, crocodile, horse and sea snake
-When younger, thought that if you jumped into a green pool you turned into a frog
-Thought that the sun rose and set in different directions according to different hemispheres
-Once saw 'a fridge flash'
-Apparently I walk REALLY FAST

FUTURE TRAVEL PLANS?
-It's epic, but involves me travelling for a while

So, ready to give up some couch?

PHILOSOPHY

-Always do what's right, even if that doesn't always suit you or others (Dad - before I left to go travelling, March 2010)
-Treat others the same way you'd like to be treated
-Have faith in people
-Never live in regret, because you only live once
-Live, Laugh, Learn, Love
