My self-summary
Impressing people with a catchy profile summary was never really my strong suit. But I guess I'll give it a shot :). Hi there, I got my BA in Singapore and am currently working in the education field in Saigon, Vietnam.

I'm a typical Cancerian (if you believe in that), an ENFP. If you're sapiosexual we will probably hit it off easily :).

I can be pretty playful and sarcastic once you get to know me well; it's fun to exchange witty banter isn't it?... I prefer being surrounded by a few close friends to mingling at parties. Well, on very rare occasions when you spot me at parties, do come and say hi, I'll be happy to talk to you, it's just that I'm a little too shy to start a conversation. Also, I have this geeky interest of collecting college T-shirts, memorizing college ranking, practicing different English accents, learning new languages, etc.

In a way, I'm a hopeless romantic who wants a guy to just appear and be everything I've hoped for. :P . I don't have a list of attributes of my perfect guy, or deal-breakers for that matter, but someone who's interested in talking to me will make for a good start! No relationship is perfect, and they shouldn't be. I believe in honest communication and less of "playing emotional games". I have a soft spot for caring and affectionate guys! I hope that my future partner will be someone who inspires me to be the best version of myself, and be there through the ups and downs.
What I’m doing with my life
I lived and worked in Singapore for 8 years and now I'm currently working as an IELTS trainer in Saigon.
I’m really good at
1/ languages (my mother tongue is Vietnamese, I'm not too bad at English, and I took Mandarin Chinese for a few semesters in Singapore)
2/ any rhythm games (e.g. Audition, XDO, o2Jam and Tap Tap Revenge). I have a good ear for music but unfortunately I don't know how to play any instrument to entertain you though. Would love to learn to play the piano one day.
3/ sleeping, enjoying good food & good company
4/ cuddling :P

The first things people usually notice about me
- My beard

- My unusually salient Chinese features on my face even though I'm half Vietnamese.

- That I don't sound Vietnamese at all.

- Maybe a little chatty when I'm excited or interested.

... to be updated
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...my future, who I will be in a couple of years, and how my career will turn out to be

...how to perfect my command of the languages that I know :-P

...someone I have a crush on
You should message me if
You should really drop me a line if:

-You're a guy, that's a prerequisite obviously, haha, and if you've survived reading my verbose profile and still decide to get to know me a little better.

-You won't get bored easily when talking about languages or having intellectual conversations with me. (but it doesn't mean we have to do that all the time, sometimes talking about silly things is fun too!) :)

-You like to enjoy a romantic comedy/horror movie at home with some popcorn, and cuddling :).

-You detest monosyllabic messages, and enjoy typing in full sentences.

That's about it, I hope to talk to you soon! Take care and have a great day.
