I am taking some times to learn musical theory and playing cello which I adored ever since I was a boy and is still one of my favorite musical instruments (+ harpsichord) :D I also take electronic lessons (nerd stuff) to broaden my vision beyond art...which in turn rewards me with the ability to build my own musical equipment that reproduce music so rich and full in the way most digital gears can never make it.
I like to read sometimes ... articles, essays and fictions (...can be from Dante to Maugham and Russell etc) :D, and I manage to workout and go hiking at least twice weekly coz health is so important in these days. Well one more thing I like to mention is that I still believe in chivalry of man as one of the virtuous deeds in modern times. I'm happy to meet long distance penpals and also willing to meet ppl in real life... to discover so much more that are unsaid about each other...
Don't let the ethnic background and the long distance be a turn-off, I will definitely move to stay with my love. This may sound silly but one simple hug is more valuable than so many talks in a virtual world :)
