I am a Bay Area native – born, raised, lived, studied, worked,
played, etc... here – and I love it. I love the heterogeneity of
people, cuisine, thoughts... I suppose that can be summed up as
loving the diversity of cultures that the Bay Area has to offer. I
have not seen much of the world, but from the limited places I have
traveled to, I am concluding that here is a wonderful place to be.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working as a clinic manager in an outpatient medical
practice. I enjoy my job very much minus the sometimes 12+ hours
I’m really good at
Hmmm... I am good at planning and organizing – both
administratively behind-the-scenes as well as interactively with
co-staff and, of course, for those the planning and organizing are
meant for. I guess that matches my job and extracurricular
The first things people usually notice about me
People probably notice my hair first. It is waist-length afterall.
When my hair is up though, I do wonder what people first
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love a good fiction especially one that follows the hero's
journey... though perhaps with a surprising, unpredictable twist
somewhere. (Ex. the Redwall or Condors series)
Movies: In general, my go-to genre is action/adventure. (Ex. James
Bond or Red Cliff)
Shows: If I had to choose between movies or shows, though, I most
definitely would choose shows over movies because a short 2-hour
film usually cannot fully develop all of the characters the way a
50-episode series can. (Ex: Lost or DOMD)
Music: Passionate/heart-rending love songs and TVB/CTV OSTs make up
the majority of my playlist. (Ex. Rolling in the Deep or Never
Food: I love trying new dishes! =P
The six things I could never do without
Physiological: breathing, food, water, sleep, etc...
Safety: security of body, employment, resources, property,
Love/belonging: friendship, family, love, sexual intimacy,
Esteem: self-esteem, confidence, achievement, respect of/by
Self-actualization: creativity, spontaneity, problem-solving,
acceptance of fact, etc...
Clearly, I look some psychology classes in college, but, hey! I
think it summarizes “things I could never do without” the best.
“Never do without” are very strong words, so I don't want to
accidentally leave anything out ever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have been trying to write a novel for awhile. So, in my spare
time, I spend a lot of hours thinking about the climax, the
build-up to the climax, and how to just put all that into words.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes, I work on weekends, so Friday night is like any other
weekday evenings. When I am not scheduled to work weekends, I am
quite open to social engagements or simply relaxing at home.
You should message me if
You should message me if you are interested in getting to know more
about me. (Duh, right?) Perhaps, we won't be a well fit, but it can
still be a decent memory. Or, we will click and be good, lasting
friends. I wouldn't mind having buddies to try new cuisines,
explore different locales, be a hiking pal, or discuss the latest
series with. Of course, if we match like two fitting puzzle pieces,
then who could possibly resist a good romance?
