This blog isn’t just about me. It’s also about you. It’s about us learning to understand different cultures around us and understanding each other. That’s why I don’t usually share personal details here. But reading other blogs, I see so many bloggers opening up about themselves. So I thought I’d share some things about myself here with you.
Where are you from?
I was born in Melbourne, Australia, and spent part of my childhood here. When I was about seven, my family moved to Asia. After spending a total of ten years in Malaysia and Singapore, I then moved back to Melbourne where I completed my final year of high school and went to university. I’m of Chinese heritage. This is me on the right:
Monkeys. I’m obsessed with them and have a collection of stuffed monkeys.
Blue. It has a calming effect on me.
What video games do you like?
The Legend of Zelda. Mario. Pokémon. Final Fantasy. Mortal Kombat. As a kid, I was very attached to my Game Boy and Game Boy Colour. I threw them out after they refused to turn on anymore. It’s something I regret.
What music do you like to listen to?
I love dancing violinist Lindsey Stirling and she inspires me so much. Florence and the Machine. Avril Lavigne. Andie Case. Michelle Branch. S Club 7. I pretty much like anything acoustic.
Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Introvert. I’d rather lounge around by myself at home than go to a party. Being around strangers for a period of time usually wears me out. Alone time or the less people around usually helps with my anxiety too.
Do you like to party or club?
I do neither. I also don’t drink. You can say I set myself certain standards and stick to them.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
The ability to teleport. Then I could visit any part of the world whenever I wanted. And I would be able to teleport to a sad person and give them a hug.
If the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do today?
Rain or shine, I’ll try to spend the day with as many of those who matter to me and whom I love.
As a chocolate lover, I completed a 100-day chocolate fast in 2013. Never again. I think.
