I have lived in more than 5 different places in Asia, Europe, and now a happy New Yorker. I love to experience different cultures and tend to get along really well with people who have an international mindset. I am always genuinely interested in everyone, but find myself distant from people who are dishonest, flaky and unreliable.
I am a good mix of being very aware and sensitive to my inner/outer world and people around me, yet always quite strong and positive especially when facing adversities in life. I am thankful to my parents' great upbringings and all the up and downs in life that have challenged me to be who I am today.
Someone said "Life without passion is unforgivable". I believe we should all strive to live to the fullest of each day and make the best of every moment, being at work, in any relationship, or being ourselves. I have quit job twice in order to pursue what I am doing today and I am loving every minute of it. I am very focused with my work but also love to spend quality time with a sweetheart after work staying in or exploring many fun activities in or out of NYC. Always have good planning and embrace serendipity even more on my journeys, map in hand but never hesitate to take a detour to explore and always love to be surprised by the good unexpected.
I am easily absorbed in music and art, as well as natural phenomena. If you love art and are creative, that is a big plus.
Love ocean, beach, swimming, sailing, being close to nature especially water...
Two qualities I care most about in any person in my life are honesty and kindness.
A few more words to describe myself before this gets too long here, I am also entrepreneurial, compassionate, supportive, spiritual, fun-loving, hedonistic, foodie...the rest you can find out. :)
