My self-summary
Hi! I'm a Dutch bloke, part Indonesian. I love good food, good music and good company. I'm here because I lack the latter. I'm interested in nearly any subject save for football, so if you want to have a chat, please come say hi :).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working hard on mastering my job (IT service delivery manager) as well as my passion (making music, playing bass). I also love cooking and sharing good food with even better friends :).
I’m really good at
I'm good at playing bass in my band :P. But also in getting other people, finding out what makes them tick. I love coaching ppl I meet into becoming more than they were. I do this at work with my staff, but also in random ppl I meet. I love ppl! Well, not always though ;). I'm also great at spinning the silliest stories :P.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can talk myself out of nearly every situation. But also that I'm a reliable guy with principles, but always interested in the other's view on things. Also, I'm hilarious! And modest of course :P.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite things! Yes, I can talk about these foreeeeeeveeeer! :D.

Books:
I read everything from Patrick O'Brian to Terry Pratchett to Niccolo Machiavelli. Oh and cookbooks, especially by her ladyship Nigella ;).

Movies/shows:
I'm a real tv show junkie, while I hardly ever have the telly on. Love series like NCIS, Burn Notice, Game of Thrones (the intrigue, ooooo), Modern Family, Doctor Who, Black Adder, Fringe, Merlin, Futurama, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Hawaii Five-O, Sons of Anarchy, Spartacus, TBBT, True Blood, HIMYM... I also love shows like QI, Nevermind the Buzzcocks and Victorian Farm. Quite diverse, eh?
Movies...well, I love everything from The Avengers to Pride & Prejudice. Yes, you read that correctly. I looove costume drama's. Even better if they have cannons. Big fan of Hornblower & Sharpe! :D.

Music:
My fav music is without a doubt Heavy Metal, specifically bands like Iron Maiden, Megadeth, DragonForce, Heathen, Judas Priest, Freedom Call (performed with them, yay), Falconer and such, but I also enjoy baroque (mostly Händel) and big band jazz/swing (mostly Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Frank Sinatra).

Food:
I love to cook and eat good food. Love Cantonese food, Indonesian, Indian, Italian and English (yes!) food, but I also love to be surprised :). I mostly cook Italian and British (you'd be surprised!) and am working on learning the family recipes from the Dutch Indies. Want a taste? Well, we'll see :P.
The six things I could never do without
1. My Friends
2. Heavy Metal
3. Chocolate
4. xxx ;)
5. Cool tv series
6. Lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
cornering the market on chocolate for Metalheads. And ducks. Oh and of course how to become a famous rock star, pronto!
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night I'm having drinks with friends (yay), watching my favourite shows (yay), playing gigs with my band (double yay), but occasionally working (boo).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The most private thing I'm willing to admit is that secretly I'm not a superhero. Don't tell anyone :P.
You should message me if
You're bored, like my rediculous profile, agree on my stance on chocolate world domination or just feel like it. You are most welcome! :).
