My self-summary
A self-professed nerd, I read an inordinate amount (see below) and spend quite a bit of time surfing online. I'm also looking for friends to try out some board games with.

I'm also using a Nokia phone that I bought in 2007 and I'm still waiting for it to break...
What I’m doing with my life
Former teacher, currently working at MOE.

I'm quite an avid diver, I try to get a dive in at least once every 2-3 weeks or so :) It might be as simple as a Sunday morning at Pulau Hantu, or maybe a weekend trip to Aur. I do a bit of macro photography, but don't have the budget to get a really good camera yet - still using a compact.
I’m really good at
Parallel parking!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really quiet, at least for the first few times I meet someone. Most of the time it's because I'm afraid of saying something offensive or rude. It does take awhile for me to open up and feel comfortable when meeting someone for the first time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Nonfiction, especially science and history. I like books by Richard Dawkins, Jared Diamond, Nassim Nicholas Taleb and Robin Lane Fox. Also science fiction (the classics - Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Philip K Dick, Orson Scott Card) and mystery novels (mostly Jeffrey Deaver, starting on Alexander McCall Smith).

Shows: The LOTR series, Les Miserables (both musical and movie), romantic comedies

Music: K-pop. Actually I'm tone deaf :p
The six things I could never do without
Close friends,
Stimulating conversation,
A good book,
My diving gear,
A nice hot bowl of laksa,
Facebook!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why Singapore's weather is so hot
On a typical Friday night I am
Out having dinner with friends, watching a movie or a play, or browsing at Kinokuniya.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not very observant. You'd probably have to shave bald before I'd notice something different about you :p
You should message me if
You want to find out more!
