My self-summary
Apologies to everyone who messaged me and didn't get a reply. I've neglected my profile for – I'd like to say real life, but then I'd be lying – and now I'm back.

Life would be so much paler without little obsessions and I have plenty. I (still) love to read read grammar books (you know, the things language teachers torture kids with) and brood on my geek dream to step into a room of people speaking different languages and understand what everyone is saying.

Because buying books simply isn't hardcore enough, I've decided to hand-bind books, which I hope to sell or, more likely, gift someday. Been on a hunt for hand-made paper. During my recent holiday in Vietnam, I managed to procure some locally-made dó paper and am much too excited about it than I should.

I adore food and admire a person who's not squeamish about what they put in their mouth. I can never say what my favourite cuisine is. Chinese, Filipino, Malay, French, Iranian, Moroccan, Lebanese, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, German, Japanese, Italian, Indian, Korean, Spanish are some I've tried. The search is still going on and if you have recommendations, let me know! If I had to give a desert island dish, it'd be bak chor mee.

I love non-sequiters, challenging interview questions, things that make me question my questionable life, chatting, hiding under my blanket, St Félicien, secondary colours. I hate staying put, buying overpriced clothes, bad manners, and puffy food.
What I’m doing with my life
What a coincidence! I ask myself that question every day!
I’m really good at
Eating. I love food, and am pretty much willing to try anything. I may not be the best cook around town, but there's no restaurant or eatery I can afford I won't step into.

And getting my height wrong. I only realised I've been shortchanging myself about 8cms!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. I'm very good at smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: OED, Ursula LeGuin, Yukio Mishima, Alan Hollinghurst, Alan Bennett, Mikhail Bulgakov...

Movies: Peter Greenaway, Pedro Almodóvar, Ghibli Studio TT^TT, Chen Kaige, Wes Anderson...

Food: I eat everything. Nom nom nom.

The list keeps changing.
Six things I could never do without
Rainy days
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to have for lunch and dinner. As for breakfast, I tend to dream about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Glad the weekend is here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I listen to Carla Bruni to sleep.
You should message me if
You're nice and interested in knowing me! =)
