Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Back from a rather long hiatus!
My name is Santhosh and it means happiness in sanscrit. Thus I try
to have the cheerful disposition as often as possible. A masters
grad from Adelaide University. I love playing with gadgets, fixing
random things, making a costume, playing board games, being
sociable (I am becoming alot better at picking conversations...
Probably because I teach for a living)
I love to travel, and when i mean travel i do not like putting up
at a fancy hotel, or going on massive tours! I like backpacking and
hitching or couch surfing and walking the streets with a map. It is
the thrill of the Adventure is what i like the most.
I love to cook. I have been cooking for years at home. Not so much
baking though but i could learn it. I love to try any sort of food
and only hate ONE thing and that is beetroot. During the 8 years of
living in Adelaide, I worked at a Japanese sushi restaurant as a
part time chef. From cutting up an Atlantic salmon for "nigiri" and
"sashimi" to making the heavenly sauces and vinegar, it was rather
sad to leave them once i graduated.
A teacher a learner, a gentleman, and a master of sarcastic wit...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have an Australian Permanent Residency, but am now home to well
be with my old friends and family for a couple of years. I work in
Academia (yes it is a word look it up).
Working, traveling, and enjoying the simple things in life. Trying
to travel as much as i can when i can.
attempting to learn Mandarin. Why? Because can... But it's proving
to be godlike difficult.....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
MAKING IMPRESSIONS of people!
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)
Making someone laugh, (you have no idea)
Photography. I love my Canon 5D MkII and 70-200 glass F2.8 lense :)
also 24-70mm F2.8 (BOKEH)!!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a spitting image (mental) of Rajesh Koothrapali from the Big
Bang Theory.... =_=
I apparently have really long eyelashes. I find it REALY hard to
hold a straight face.....
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).

Jedi Order was pretty damn good IMHO).
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.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Games (console/pc/table top any sort)
Traveling (local treck or camping/ roadtrip)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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)
Anything random... I don't have anything else that Prominently
comes into mind..........on that note whats for dinner?
Where do I go next?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not really the clubbing kind of person, im either at home with a
book, playing a game, watching a movie, karaoke-ing, playing a
board game with housemates, talking to friends. (socialising the
unorthodox way over a beer or in my case a glass or two of single
malt scotch). I do like bars though.
I did alot of band photography with my good mate Chris. But now
that I'm back im usually up for anything other then a club. A bar
anytime not a club.
Now in KL on the other hand..... I am yet to have a routine.
SOMEONE RECOMMEND ME SOMETHING!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Dancing like a maniac to random song and singing along to it (i may
or may not know ALL the words to the song and look like a complete
fool doing it but HEY! I admit it).
ok... when i am deep in thought i tend to argue with myself verbaly
and i never actually realise it....
I am abit of a Disney fan.... To the point I know alot of the songs
by heart... So chances are you will hear me humm something or...
Even sing it out loud (apologies in advance >_>)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are well a book nut like i am or if you just want to say
If you would like a real friend. If you want someone to talk to
regardless of what it is about. Also if you're open enough to talk
to an Indian guy.
OR if you had actually read through the blurb that was my profile
and would genuinely like to know more about me.
