ABOUT ME

Wirting this section at 12:36am at night is not just cool, it is so cool! Yes, I am kinda nocturnal animal, cos I find myself work best during night, which might be contributed to the abnormal hormone secretion given to my genetic inheritance -- my father is a damn good newspaper reporter, and who dares to deny he writes best article only at night time?! The reason I am crazy for genetics, is partically cos of my biology major; but, serious biology sucks when I am out of my working situation (both physically and mentally) and wanna get relaxed. So what I love besides the Godfather Darwin? -- Sports of any kind drive me crazy, reading at night for some detective novels would be marvelous, hanging out with guys to intellectually rewarding places like museums, theatre and historical sites is always a big bless as well!
However, nothing would come close to an exciting outdoor activities! I love traveling, in particular, the ones that allow for close touch with the local people and culture. As I always believe firmly, there are things bigger than your own life. The travel itself should also be a way of learning and self revelation.

PHILOSOPHY

There are things bigger than life.

"Legend of the Fall" starred by Brad Pitt is my all time favorite. It was filmed in the Ghost River, Alberta, Canada. So, friends, if you happen to be from a place nearby, let me know!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Venture into the ruins of Great Wall (It is far more awesome than what you see on the cover page)
In search of wild pandas in the forest of south west China. (When it came real close, I finally realized that it is just another kind of bear...)
