I was raised single-handedly by my mum, which shaped me to be strong and hard working. I graduated with a degree in Management Economics and currently working for an international bank. I'm doing AML compliance, but I'm hoping to move into investment banking one day, maybe after I get a master's degree and eventually work for ADB and use what I've learned to give back to society. that's the plan.
Though i'm not the most religious person in the planet, my faith and moral compass are very important to me, and if there's one thing i've learned from previous dating experiences, it's that I can never work out well with someone who doesn't believe in God.
"Nothing is more practical than
finding God, than
falling in Love
in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with,
what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.
It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning,
what you do with your evenings,
how you spend your weekends,
what you read, whom you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in Love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything" -Fr. Arrupe
I shouldn't go into a relationship thinking that another person would fill all the emptiness but more because I'm ready to give and fill someone's emptiness. That's my theory based on all the books I've read, movies I've seen, songs I've listened to, and stories I've heard. :)
Geez, you might think I'm a hopeless romantic, sappy girl next goor. Though it's not entirely true, I'd be lying if I said I'm not.
I'm good at singing. Actually no but I wish I was!
I also get asked alot if I'm chinese, japanese or korean..
I make it a point to watch a movie at least once a week, I often go to the cinema with family or friends. There are movies that move you to think, make you cry, get you amazed, and wonder why and those films have a special place in my heart like A Walk to Remember, Jeux D'enfants, Intouchables, 3 Idiots, Life of Pi, Before Sunrise, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Wicker Park, Midnight in Paris, Kite Runner, Moulin Rouge, Great Gatsby, Perks of Being a Wallflower, 500 Days of Summer, Pretty Woman, The Notebook, Inception and a lot moooore!
After getting home from work, I usually watch TV series to relax before going to sleep. My favorites are Suits, Grey's Anatomy, Sherlock, The OC, Vampire Diaries, Awkward, Game of Thrones, Happy Endings, The Newsroom, and Friends.
I'm a huge music person, I have a soundtrack for every event in my life or emotion I feel, sometimes I find it easier to express myself through songs, which is why I like making playlist for friends. Indie, Alternative rock, pop punk, country and all genres except heavy metal. I adore bands like one republic, the killers, a rocket to the moon, death cab for cutie, dashboard confessionals, snow patrol, maroon5, m83, all time low, boys like girls, the fray, imogen heap, the script, grace potter and the nocturnals, switchfoot, anberlin, mayday parade, of monsters and men, yellowcard, we the kings, the smiths, 30 seconds to mars, florence + the machine, passion pit, naked and famous, MGMT and solo artists like Gavin Degraw, Lana Del Ray, Damien Rice, Katy Perry, David Guetta, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Avicii, Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Pink and more!!!
Japanese food and French desserts! But I'm not picky with food, i eat a lot!
2. Family- the people who drive me crazy and keep me sane at the same time.
3. Food- I guess this one's pretty obvious
4. Chocolates- Coz I need my daily dose of happy thoughts and sugar rush
5. Pixie Dust- this keeps me hopeful and fuels my daydreaming tendencies, I believe in miracles.
6. Wanderlust- this keeps me on my toes, always curious about wondering what's out there and seeing glimpses of heaven.
But when I'm not contemplating with Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, I'm usually thinking about...
-how to be a better person
-where and how to get my master's degree
-how i'm gonna travel the world
-what happened to Amelia Earhart
-how am I gonna do something transcendental with my life
-what's my purpose
-going to Paris
-what heaven looks like
