My self-summary
I bounce around like a ping pong ball between Europe and China, but now I'm mostly in HK/Shanghai/Shenzhen/hot humid weather.

I moved around quite a bit when I was young but now I'm based in East Asia. I am an expert at crossing borders and going to different factories. I play CSI: Mechanical engineering with CAD diagrams, party with Communist Party secretaries, and think about sheet metal transformations all day long. 不好意思,打中文打得慢,中文有限公司

I like learning and building things. I enjoy knowing how complicated things work, and the subtleties behind things we use and take for granted every day without thinking about. I'm a quick learner and pretty flexible, and as a result, I have all kinds of random technical skills - I'm that guy who can fix your computer. I'm detail oriented, bordering on obsessive when I find something I like. If I'm in a history museum, I would probably read everything and make connections between different parts of the world. Who knew that the beginning of Japanese isolationism would cause a massive drop in Dutch VOC profits which in turn create a power gap for British influence?

And I definitely have a weird combination of interests. Developing black and white film and going to history/art museums are from my geeky side; Others like cooking, fine dining, horse racing got rubbed off from my family.
What I’m doing with my life
I have taken a liking to photography and have carried a camera to different parts of the world and sometimes endlessly snap away (like flying on a glider) or be frugal with with a roll of film.

Training for a half marathon by running 16km twice a week while listening to NEW DAFT PUNK ALBUM. It's nice to feel like a warm toaster oven without blasting all the space heaters on. Or have a 100% success rate when I chase down a bus.
I’m really good at
Getting my hands dirty. In fact I actually like to get them dirty and messy! Whether it's staining my hands with T-MAX film developer to develop my own films, scooping age old mounds of computer dust, scalding my hands when frying noodles, or scraping hands from climbing mountains, it's all good to me. I always wash my hands, so I'm sure it's fine!

Remembering small nuances and obscure details like Canadian spelling because I see red squiggly lines all the time. If I don't follow the secret tricks of mom's 蒸水蛋 then I would have ruined the smooth silky taste and shamed my ancestors.

After living in away from my family for a while I'm really good at cooking. I could never settle for instant ramen everyday and learned how to cook real food. The local butchers respect me for my knowledge of animal anatomy because I mix the right parts to make a mean hamburger. I also picked up a few Chinese cuisine recipes from my elders in order to preserve my cultural heritage.
The first things people usually notice about me
My tan and weird accent makes people think I'm from different parts of South East Asia. Except the South East Asians, they all know I'm ethnically Chinese. Culturally though, it depends on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Always enjoyed instrumental and dance music like Daft Punk and El Ten Eleven. Old school hip hop like Jurassic 5 and Dr. Dre works for me as well. Right now I'm in a bit of a alternative/Indie/Prog rock phase. My friends are dragging me into different live shows like Poubelle International, Two Door Cinema Club, and Bombay Bicycle Club.

Just saw Phoenix and they were AWESOME!

TV Shows: Game of Thrones had better seasons, but still good. Can't go wrong with The Onion News Network. Breaking Bad had a good run. Mad Men and Archer are both fun.

Brooklyn Nine Nine is growing on me.

Movies: I adore movies and can watch the same movie multiple times. Sometimes I watch for the plot hook, lighting, shot, cinematography, or trying to pick out the obscure details and faint continuities in a Wong Car Wai (Chung King Express, 重慶l森林). It is always fun to revisit a Tarentino (Reservoir Dogs), Hitchcock (Vertigo), Kubrick (The Shining), and old Spielberg(Schindler's List). Chick flicks like The Proposal and Notting Hill are pop corn munching guilty pleasures.

Comedies are also great too. Who can reject (Little Miss Sunshine) and (The 40 year old Virgin), or the foreign films like (Life is Beautiful), (Good Bye Lenin!)? You might have noticed, I really do enjoy cinema.

Books: I heartily recommend A Concise History of Hong Kong.

Being on the road gives means more time to read books. Slowly filling up my Kindle and trying to knock down all those classics. Neuromancer by Gibson is a pretty fun science fiction. Earth: A visitor's guide to the Human Race by Jon Steward. Know a book you think I'd like? Tell me and I will read it. Someday, I will finish all the books from Murakami. But I think most of his stuff is just a derivative of Norwegian Wood.

Food: This place is food city! But really, I enjoy sharing nice things with people than having it all to myself so normally I'm content to pack my own lunch.

I recently discovered a Ghanaian restaurant and enjoy eating fufu with my hands. Speaking of eating with hands... Sushi: Tamago done right is hard to get and I can never say no to Maguro. I try to introduce my friends Kohada for its subtlety in balance.

Crossing into the mainland, my palate is flipped. Mystery oil with mystery meat on a stick, fresh naan from the Uigurs, real sichuan stuff and rice vermicilli from Guangxi.

Living here in Hong Kong, this is the place to have Dim Sum: Quintessential Siu Mai(燒賣) paired with Har Gau(蝦餃) and a Char Siu Bao(叉燒包) on the side. With a traditional Egg Tart(蛋撻) for dessert. But I know not everyone is into Chinese food. Sharing a thick juicy porterhouse Steak - grilled to perfection is just as good. Preferably paired with a nice bottle of Pouilly-Fuissé or Clos Vougeot.
The six things I could never do without
The outdoors. Green things. When I'm done with living in a shoebox I go for a hike or a bike. Tan lines are cool, it means I didn't stab anyone in the eye with a parasol.

Large paper maps, when I get lost in said outdoors. It's always fun to look at the places you have been and look out for places you want to go. And seeing China's nautical claims to the South China Sea is always hilarious.

Sending post cards and stamps! And then getting a facebook message about receiving said post card.

If I couldn't didn't like any of the stock post cards, I would need my camera(s) and send my pictures instead. Capturing life through the viewfinder is priceless.

And of course learning! Going to different countries and museums, learning about history, art and how the dots connect with each other is really rewarding for me. Bonus points for Sociology/Anthropology/History.

Kudos, if you can explain how a jette works, or how science works - I truly love learning about all sorts of things. Even a boring sheet of steel can be shaped into a part and machined to be part of an airplane.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Do people really pay for their tickets when they take the Deutsch Bahn. No turnstiles? An honour system? I think I have been in Asia too long.

How I can get rid of my atrocious southerner accent when I speak Mandarin without coming off as being a language vocalizer or pretentious jerk.

The quirky things I see as I travel and how it compares to home. Who would have knew that touching the bus driver in Seattle is a serious act of violence which can lead to a federal offence? Or that in Hong Kong waiting will be prosecuted? Using the main entrance of city hall in China without the blessing of a public official can get you arrested! And of course, always dismount from the left side of a motor cycle taxi. My leg got burned a couple times, it's not really fun.

I also think how I can get my tomato sauce the right consistency when I make everything from scratch. The local Chinese variety in my home town is very uncooperative. I season with Sichuan pepper corns and balance it with sugar. More guidance would be appreciated! Or tell me more about beer/home brewing, it's my eventual exit plan from my industry and start a craft brewery.

Nowadays I don't have much time for lengthy back packing trips, so I try to squeeze in a few extra days off after going to some trade show. Fiddling my google calendar like tetris is fun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going for an evening run and do some reading. I supposed to work on Saturdays.

But that doesn't stop me from meeting up my out of town friends or staying up all night. I just crank my body in to turbo overtime mode. Redbull and Bloody Bull with coffee and moist scrambled eggs will do the trick (I try not do it all the time)

Or I get sick of this city of shoe boxes and just fly somewhere 4 hours away in East Asia as a mini getaway. Nowadays it's Shanghai/Singapore. Sometimes Bangkok.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I drank Bailey's out of a shoe, happened twice in my life. Interacting with mainland politcs and guanxi is like a frat house movie scene.

I spiked someone else's tofu pudding with baijiu and red bull. It's just like a spiked milkshake, but with Chinese characteristics.
