“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” — Leonardo da Vinci
would love to experience many things in life that i've missed the chance or haven't been able to. for example, i've never build a sandcastle before, never been kiss (i hope that my first kiss would be unforgettable as if i've been saving it for someone special) nor have the privilege of knowing my grandparents's lives or that they have any family recipes/traditions that i can learn from. i would love to experience the small things in life that often; most people take for granted, which normally meant a lot to me; even though sometimes it may seems silly to others.
intrigued in surfing waves in the beach but there isn't waves big enough to surf here; only skimboard at best. often dreamt of making different kinds of coffee origins rooted from different type of beans; like a barista could, to mixing different potent drinks as a bartender would. or that I would be a great DJ in the booth mixing and spinning for clubs to dance the night away.
“The little things are infinitely the most important. “
— Arthur Conan Doyle
it takes a fair amount of time for me to warm up to someone new, but when i'm comfortable with someone there's no telling what degree of friendliness i may display. so if you're someone who patient and genuinely looking for a relationship. write me up.
“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.” — Lao Tzu
figuring out the next step in my life, just as art imitates life and vice-versa, a debate that has been on-going for a long time. spending time wondering how we may be insignificant in this world, but like a water droplet returning to the pool of water, it resonate and creates waves that impact. we can choose to either be a droplet or a body of stagnant water.

i should say that i have a strong attraction towards vocals and stringed instruments; such as guitar, bass, violin, cello, viola, sape, erhu, pipa, guzheng, koto also flute, and piano. in the voice/hands of a prodigy, can they draw out its full potential and evoke deep & powerful emotions when they solo or form in groups. Grew up listening to pop & rock music but am influenced by much R&B/Soul as well and trying to pick up jazz, blues & ballad on the way.
food: japanese, greek, italian, chocolates especially dark, matcha, cold desserts & pastries
soul mate (when i find him) :3
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones
“It is not the length of life, but the depth.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
preferably someone who's masculine and mature (not necessarily in terms of age), one that possess the qualities of a good man. taller than my height or same height & love cuddling! if you have a deep voice, that's another bonus! <3 someone who hate to see another in pain, and would do anything to protect/ease their suffering. a person who would tease you, try his best to make you laugh even if it makes him looks silly and would not let you go when you are down. :)
“It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
