20 ••• Videogames 🎮: usually anything that is story-driven or has a
good degree of creativity involved in it, or just any game that is
fun and engaging to play. I have to say though, it’s harder and
harder for me to be interested or keep an interest in a game
nowadays. After so many years of gaming, it’s just not the same
anymore 😔. Things just get old quickly and it’s hard to find games
with truly fresh new content that keeps me interested throughout
the whole thing.
I only play on PC, no consoles. I created and manage a Steam group
for HK people to play together and make new friends:
I don't play MMOs or competitive-based games, other than Robocraft,
I guess. In the past, I loved survival-horror games 🙀 like Resident
Evil, Silent Hill, Cry of Fear, Alan Wake, No More Room in Hell;
puzzle games like Limbo or Braid or mindfuck games like The Path.
Some other games I really enjoyed are Project Eden, Obscure, Alone
in the Dark, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, Shadow of the
Colossus, Outlast, DreadOut, Minecraft, Robocraft, Lucius, Sleeping
Dogs, Deus Ex - Human Revolution, Oblivion, Skyrim, Switchball, the
series of Assassin's Creed, Hitman, Portal, Prototype, Prince of
Persia, Splinter Cell, Tomb Raider, Dead Rising... I also used to
play The Sims 3 a lot, mostly for the creative side of it in
If I have a gaming partner, I love playing co-op games together,
online or next to each other.
19 ••• Music 🎵: I like different kinds of music, mostly anything
that combines fast verses and harsh lyrics and chourses over hard
beats. Favorite artists would be something like Linkin Park,
Hollywood Undead, Deuce, Korn, Issues, Dangerkids, Scare Don't
Fear, Eminem, Fort Minor, Splitbreed, Tyler the Creator, Young
Buck, brokeNCYDE, Lie or Liar, System of a Down, Limp Bizkit,
G-Unit, Attila, Nok from the Future, B.Lay, Ronnie Radke, Marilyn
Manson and some more. So I guess my main genres are rap,
rap-rock/rap-metal/rap-core and nu metal, also like metalcore and a
bit of crunckcore and deathcore. I also enjoy electronic music too,
especially dubstep, vocal trance, trap, goa-psy trance, progressive
psy, and more rarely even lighter music like pop and R&B,
depending on what the song is about and my mood.
18 ••• Movies 🎥: I rarely go to the cinema but I have watched quite
a lot of movies, mostly on my computer, lol. I go through periods
in which I watch loads of movies and periods in which I don’t watch
any at all, focusing on gaming instead.
I like movies where you have to think and try to figure out the
plot as things are happening, movies with twists, those that maybe
require a second watching to completely understand the story; also
movies with an innovative or unusual story/idea behind them. I like
the "found footage" genre. Some movies I really liked are (this
list is a bit outdated now): The Last Exorcism, Triangle, Grave
Encounters, The Descent, Fight Club, Super, Ken Park, Oldboy,
Lovely Molly, The Tall Man, The Butterfly Effect, The Mist, The
Matrix, Chronicle, Cloverfield, REC, District 9, Kick Ass, Borat,
Saw, The Devil's Double and many more.
I’m also into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I keep track of what I've watched here:
17 ••• Shows 📺: I don't really watch any shows or series. I know
everybody watches series. Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The
Walking Dead, and many more, but I really can’t commit to watching
a series that goes on and on for ages. I’d rather watch a movie for
90 minutes and be done with it, either it being a good or bad
movie. With series, you always have to wait for new episodes to
come out. Also, I see that quite often people end up being
disappointed with the series and lose interest in it at some point.
So many people were into Lost back in the days, and then the ending
was shit apparently, and everyone felt so let down after investing
so much time into the series over the years.
But I did watch some series in the past. I used to love The X-Files
as a kid, and I did watch some anime series like Ergo Proxy, Neon
Genesis Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell and Gantz. Salad Fingers was
an animated web series I really liked.
16 ••• Books 📖: I don't read books. I do read a lot though, online.
Articles about what's new in the world, or articles about specific
topics which are relevant to my interests. I use Wikipedia and
other wikis in general quite a lot, rarely I contributed to some
Wiki article. I read on a want-to-know-more basis, but I don't have
a book in my hands so that people can think how smart I must be. As
far as reading for entertainment, I (used to) read some mangas
online, like Gantz or Maka-Maka, or some webcomics like Oglaf.
Novels don't entertain me, so I don't read them. You're a book
lover, okay, shoot me XD
15 ••• Food 🍴: Some of the stuff I used to eat in Barcelona all the
times was: a lot of pizza 🍕, many different pasta dishes 🍝, cold
milk with muesli or chocolate-chip biscuits 🍪, and hummus. I used
to cook everyday by myself, but now here in HK my eating habits
have changed quite a lot. Mostly because I don't have a proper
kitchen to properly cook at home, and also I don’t find the same
things in the supermarkets. So I often eat outside now, since it's
not too expensive... but it's still expensive to eat outside often!
I am not ashamed to admit that I go quite often to McDonald's since
I love some of their food now 🍔🍟 (not all of it, just certain
specific things). There’s some ugly McDonald’s in HK but the ones
near my house are nice so I just enjoy going there and sit down on
my own and eat and think about stuff. I still do cook and eat at
home, but a lot less than I used to.
14 ••• Another activity I enjoy doing when possible is the
exploration of abandoned buildings/sites 🏢🔦. I used to do this
alone, but now I don’t go alone anymore. You can see some of my
There's a gazillion abandoned places here in HK and recently I have
started exploring again, after a couple of years of inactivity.
