My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've motorbiked across Vietnam and the Himalayas, taken a train to Tibet, and jeeped to Nepal, but never imagined that I would end up in Texas. I'm always looking forward to the next trip but am glad to call Austin home.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a tech company in town, and keep myself pretty busy with projects outside of that, mostly working on my house on the east side. I cook a fair bit, though I steer clear of baking. I just started a ceramics class which has prompted a lot of Ghost jokes. It's filled with sweet old ladies though, for whom Ghost is quite likely not on their cultural radar.

I recently rode my motorbike through Mexico and am wondering when I can return for more.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
throwing awesome parties. A memorable one was a sounds-fancier-than-it-really-was oysters and champagne NYE party which really went down. My friend DJed and killed with the 90s jams.

I love dancing - always down to cut a rug!

I love difficult recipes. If you're lucky you'll get to try my beef rendang - it's a Malaysian curry that cooks in coconut milk for hours. So good!

I'm a great listener, aided by a fascination with people and a healthy curiosity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ethnically ambiguous with an unplaceable accent. Also my smile and hair, I've been told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
David Foster Wallace, Murakami, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Michael Chabon, Kurt Vonnegut, Martin Amis, Nabokov. I've also got a bunch of subscriptions to Dwell, Saveur, Lucky Peach, Atlantic Monthly and Harpers. Alan Moore, Maus, Preacher, Fables, Chris Ware.

I can't stress how much I love documentaries. Also, Studio Ghibli, Wong Kar Wai, Mar Adentro, Mighty Boosh, BBC comedies, Long Way Round, Mexican directors, Cowboy Bebop, Raging Bull, Wes Anderson, The Wire, Breaking Bad, The Thick of It, Drunk History. Netflix seems to be producing home runs with their shows. Ratatouille rocked me to my core. Seriously. I'll always be chasing that madeleine.

Growing up overseas, I never imagined I'd get to see all the amazing bands I've seen live, of which Godspeed You! Black Emperor tops the list. Nils Frahm, Tim Hecker, Colin Stetson, Bjork, Belle and Sebastian, The Knife, Bon Iver, Neutral Milk Hotel, Four Tet, Beach House, Antony & The Johnsons, Mono, Broken Social Scene, Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Cardigans, Dinosaur Jr, Magnetic Fields, Kate Bush, DJ Shadow, People Under The Stairs, Vic Chesnutt, Sonic Youth, Camera Obscura, Jonsi, Tallest Man On Earth. Also, Bill Callahan - I can't believe the dude lives here. I've run into him at the Farmers market downtown and at Wheatsville. His recent documentary is a perfect slice of Americana.

Food: I grew up in Southeast Asia and there's a joke that we plan dinner over lunch. I'm always looking for neat new places to eat and I'm down for anything! I've been really enjoying the nascent ramen emergence in Austin. If pressed, though, Vietnamese is my favorite, not just the regular pho and banh mi stuff, but all the other crazy dishes - tamarind crab anyone? Also, all sorts of beer/wine/whisk(e)y.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Motorbike. Having the Texas hill country just down the street is a real boon.
Cooking is my yoga.
Reading, though I wish I did more of that.
Music is a constant accompaniment to everything.
Drinks to match the mood.
Things that make the head throb heart-like.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Food systems and culture, cool furniture I should build, what my backyard would look like when I'm finally done, California/midcentury modern design and how to integrate that into my old 40s bungalow, artisanal anything, how to make my tiny kitchen more efficient, my dream food enterprise, good coffee, when I'm finally going to visit Iceland, how my quality of life has somewhat degraded since stopping my bikram yoga practice, mindfulness and meditation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at a show, out on the east side, checking out a new restaurant/trailer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I could go at length about food miles, sustainable food practices, the recent reliance of farming on fossil fuels instead of the sun, how monocultures are bad, Monsanto is evil, Tyson is terrible, and the minutiae of factory farming practices but... I could never say no to any form of fried chicken. Fried chicken is my kryptonite.
