My self-summary
A gentleman, a tad bit of a geek, a book nut, adventurous and a master of sarcastic wit.

Born Malaysian, Living in Adelaide.

A travel bug, backpacking and making short trips are the best. I am fairly active/outdoorsy for a geek. I find solace in silence as it helps me think. So I'm usually hiking, rock climbing on a weekend or hiding in a library or at borders.

I love to cook, I worked as a Sushi chef at Sushi Train, and Sushi Planet for 3 years while doing my bachelors and masters. So yes i know how to carve a fish and make the rolls.

A sucker for learning something completely useless....
What I’m doing with my life
Working at University

Up and about; I travel the world and looking for anything interesting and attempting it.

Working, traveling, and enjoying the simple things in life.

I find languages fun. I'm attempting to learn Mandarin currently. But it's proving to be a lot harder then expected...
I’m really good at
I like playing the piano. Although i am not a Mozart i love practicing it. I recently bought a Yamaha P-105! So i don't have to sneak into the music faculty anymore...

Learning a language. I can speak 5 languages relatively fluently. (useful when I get lost traveling)

cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am a carbon copy of Rajesh Koothrapali from the Big Bang Theory....

I apparently have really long eyelashes.

I am often so captivated with reading a book or watching a movie that I tend to act out the monologue (AND I DO THIS WITH PASSION).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite books: (by author), Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie's: "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd " , P.G Woodhouse, Lewis Carrol, anything by H.G. Wells, and R.L Stevenson's tales that still keeps me up at night.

Current day books I'm a big fan of (Again by Author)
Terry Pratchett, (devastated that he passed, R.I.P)
Suzanne Collins,
Robert Jordan (Wheel of time series)
Robbin Hobb's (Farseer Trilogy: My ultimate favourite)

Also how can i forget the book that brought me to love fantasy J.R.R Tolkien himself, the LoTR trilogy, and the Hobbit.
G.R.R Martin (The song of ice and fire books), J.K Rowling for bringing magic to my childhood.
Christopher Paolini's books. I never loved dragons so much until his works.
Adelaide Born Sean Williams! Any of his Star Wars novels.

I am not much of a law and legal reader but John Grisham is someone slowly appearing on my bookshelf. His Theodore Boone books are one heck of a thriller!!! Speaking of thrillers, Dan Browns "digital fortress" was an interesting read.

Dislikes: Murakami, Jeffrey Archer........ (sue me)

The six things I could never do without
Books

A game of any sort

A pet animal

Music of any kind

Mountains/hills/treks (semantics)

Errr...Maslow's hierarchy of needs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Believe it or not but, what is the meaning of life *no pun intended*, how cool would it be if life was a science fiction novel!

Egalitarianism (go ahead...ask yourself, are you really fair to everyone and what does it mean to be fair)

Why do people subconsciously choose someone based on the colour of their skin and often associate said person of colour with a negative POV. Yes I am Indian by birth but I certainly do not act like the majority of them. I am sure people of "favoured" colour act in the same balance of bad and good kinds just as everyone else.

Anything random... I don't have anything else that Prominently comes into mind..........on that note what's for dinner?
On a typical Friday night I am
Not really the clubbing kind of person, I'm either at home with a good book, playing a game, watching a movie, talking to friends. (socialising the unorthodox way over a beer at a small local bar.

I am open to suggestions. Just not a club thanks
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
ok... when i am deep in thought i tend to space out unknowingly.... I suppose its an occupational hazard working at a university.

I am on a dating website, trying to find someone for something long-lasting. Sceptical to say the least.
You should message me if
If you are well a book nut like i am or if you just want to say hello.

If you don't mind my skin tone and appreciates intelligent speech.

If you want a serious relationship that could lead to something more.

Adieu~
