Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Half English. Half Australian. Work bought me to Singapore on a
permanent basis two years ago and I'm getting out and about, making
friends, exploring the people, food, culture and loving the
opportunities that this gateway to Asia provides.
I am unpretentious, thoughtful and open minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In no particular order: Exploring
, meeting, swimming
, dancing, partying
, chatting... and working here
too! I'm applying a little bit of direction here and there in my
life and I have some high level plans but I'm not overly
controlling about things and am enjoying life as it comes. Ce la
vie! Apparently I'm a typical aquarian / air sign. That said, when
I meet people with the right chemistry, and things start to click,
I get pretty serious.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being modest and hiding the layers that lie underneath the surface.
The rest you will have to discover...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sociable, friendly, a little bit cheeky, open minded. Beauty of
course is in the eye of the beholder... Friends tell me that I'm a
calm, generous and friendly person but with a dry and off the wall
sense of humour and a philosphical sense of life, society, and
things in general.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Dice Man, The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Food
writing by Anthony Bourdain / food porn in general. Less Than Zero
and American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. Catch 22. Non-ficton
(politics, economics, society).
Movie: Bad 80's comedy (Caddyshack, Fletch, Weird Science, etc.),
French cinema - Betty Blue is my personal favourite, all the
Godfather trilogy, The Deer Hunter... too many to name
Music: Too much to write! Wide ranging tastes but lots of
electronica including anything on Rephlex, a bit of old-skool
House, Tom Middleton (Global Communications / Reload especially),
Daft Punk, Sabres of Paradise, New Order, 80s New-Wave. I also
write electronic music as a hobby and I don't mind listening to my
own stuff from time to time!
Food: Cooking is one of my passions! Eating too! Homemade slow
cooked duck pasta sauce made with Fresh duck stock and lots of
herbs with Fresh home-made tagliatelle and aged parmesan and
truffle oil. Or seafood - prawns, really fresh mussels (cooked a la
mariniere and then the juice turned into risotto), teriyaki ocean
trout, the perfect spaghetti vongole. Or maybe just really good
cheese, good crusty sourdough and a decent bottle of wine!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good friends. 2. A sense of humour
. 3. The spirit of adventure
. 4. Great food
, and sex
. 5. Music
. 6. Challenge and knowing there is
more to learn.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. The worlds of people, nature, art and culture are
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
a. Out with friends in town, probably seeing some live music or
doing some bar crawling exploration. b. Entertaining friends and
cooking up a storm at my place and challenging my guests to 'blind
tasting' wine games. c. Wandering and taking unusual photos of the
cities parks, laneways or lights, or along the beach. d. Just
relaxing with some home cooking and wondering about the mysteries
of the universe...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am unpredictable. Sometimes quite shy, sometimes very extrovert.
Sometimes I surprise myself.

You're looking for a friend, someone to go cycling / swimming /
