July 2013 update: I'd love to meet a femaie, preferably residing in Singapore, who's a great fan of the Baltimore-based 5-season HBO series "The Wire" and Breaking Bad.
Born and grew up in Singapore, multilingual. I love both Singaporean and American n Brit cultures. I speak, read ,write, curse and dream in English mostly, sometimes Cantonese, Hokkien if I'm pissed off. I enjoy working, and but am surely not a workaholic. Loved the ski trips to Whistler, Tignes Val Claret, Meribel, Wengen, Park City Utah, Banff, Niseko, Vail and St. Anton. Used to make a yearly trip to Bali to eat, sleep, relax, READ like mad and have long conversations with close friends. I am to reading like a tiger shark is to eating. Unfussy with a broad diet.
explaining complicated stuff in simple language, so that its accessible to others.
reading and learning quickly. I know a bit about a lot of things, and have been called "The Wizard of Irrelevant Facts".

How Singapore can best reverse the damage from the "asset appreciation" policies that has led to sky-high HDB prices, super long and super huge loans, and hence generations of Singaporeans who will only have the means for either retirement or financing major illnesses, but not both.
Besides that, it would be the next ski trip, or which hawker meal is next or any movies that I have yet to watch
Or surfing YouTube :)
