I love to run and I am into marathons. I love activities in the outdoors such as hiking and very intrigued with hashing, having a nice cold beer after an hour plus of hiking and running is quite an awesome feeling.
I am also keen on learning more about photography. I have a basic Nikon DSLR and a couple of lenses. Because I want to excite my right brain, I am generally interested in arts, music and film.
I grew up in Kuala Lumpur and also spent some time in Beijing a few years back. I would love to spend more time in other cities around the world.
2. I have a bit more time now, so I would like to travel a bit more
3. Train for my next run
I love watching foreign films, art films, anime (Cowboy Beebop, Ghost in the Shell, Miyazaki's stuff, Evangelion), Malaysian films (Talentime, Sepet) and Chinese films (山楂树之恋 - Under the Hawthorn Tree, 80后 - Heaven Eternal, Earth Everlasting, 一个陌生女人的来信 - Letter from an Unknown Woman, 阳光灿烂的日子 - In the Heat of the Sun) especially those set in the Cultural Revolution. I am fine with stuff coming out of Hollywood but they are definitely not the only stuff worth watching.
Korean movies are pretty awesome, some recent gems: Mother (Madeo) and Lady Vengeance. A classic would be Memories of Murder. A pretty quirky movie (without dialogue) would be 3-Iron.
Some TV shows: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Suits, Spartacus, Smallville, X-files (oh ain't that old).
Music that inspire me: Rock, Post Rock, Jazz/Blues, Asian-pop (for keeping to my roots :p), soundtrack for Japanese movies/anime.
Food: Japanese/Korean food, meaty stuff, Tex/Mex...
And am still looking for a good italian pasta and definitely don't mind some good salmon sashimi and butter fish. Oh yea, and Ox tongue, teppanyaki style, is quite good.
I also miss quite a bit of food from China, while I was in Beijing, like the large selection of different hotpots, Mala Xiangguo, Mala Tang, Xinjiang food and Sichuanese food.
