I've been living in Chicago area for 5 years. I can say that I am a very active person. Work is work, off work time, I like adventures! "Work hard, play hard." I have tried go-cart racing, rafting, archery, kayaking, horsing back riding, ski, snowboarding, scuba diving, sky diving, etc... Don't get me wrong. Most of those activities are just for an experience, not everyday thing.
I also really love to travel everywhere around the whole world. Before I came here, I have been to Australia as an exchange student in high school. In America, I've been to LA, DC, Boston, NYC, SF and Miami in the past a couple of years.
And... I'm a relatively quiet person. I usually don't talk much. But I don't mind you talk a lot. I enjoy listening. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Living in, and enjoying a busy life... Day job is being research specialist in a physiology lab at Loyola University Chicago, also doing translation work and writing proposal for a pharmaceutical consulting firm using my spare time.
Also trying to stay healthy... attend yoga and tennis class weekly.
I’m really good at
swimming, yoga, scuba diving, cooking Chinese and Italian food, making travel plans.
trying to be good at playing tennis too!

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my career of course. "What we do for living, defines who we are." Be more specifically, making a viable plan toward consultant for pharmaceutical company, to overview clinical trial data and evaluate if this new drug is safe and good enough to get into the market.
but to be more realistic, what's for dinner, and what I'm going to do for the coming weekends... :D
On a typical Friday night I am
Chill at home watch TV shows or read on my Kindle... Sometimes hang out with friends. So it really depends...
You should message me if
you are career-oriented, taller than me, mature, like adventures, and we have similar interests like tennis, or movies, or swimming, or traveling, or foodie.
But please DO NOT waste your time if you are here for one night stand, or don't have a profile picture, or don't write anything in your profile.
And NO big bar/club person. I do drink alcohol, but I don't enjoy being drunk that much.
