Enjoy action, drama, movies with good stories. Best movies are not made in Hollywood
Like to read news periodical like The Economist and newspapers. Non fiction material and classic western and Chinese (translated) literature.
American Barbeque, Chinese - Northern Shanghai Cantonese, Japanese, Indian, Italian, Spanish, Chilean, Thai - but the best is home cooking made from freshest ingredients available. My preference these days to to purchase produce direct from farmer's market and cook it myself.
Passionate lover of all types of music except top 40 pop type music. I love classical to loud rock n roll to opera to jazz and free jazz. I love Beijing opera and international music - African, Indian etc.
Mostly dress casual - like jeans and shirt. Do like to dress up in sharp suite when taken out that special woman for a dinner date. I keep fit by with a daily exercise routine includes weights and stretches. I have firm muscles but I not a body builder body.
I am not a joker and will be silly usually only around a few of my male friends. I tend to be more reserved my really enjoy the company of lady with good sense of humor and a tendency to laugh. I do enjoy a good laugh and I hope my lady will be able to make me laugh and bring smiles to my face.
My hobbies include cooking, listening to music on my audiophile system, reading, road biking, walking. I have not been able to travel too much to last 4 years due to time constraints but traveling and discovering cultures and food is a real love. When traveling I would never join a tour, I would research and plan my own itinerary and revel in the discoveries that I find.
Been to Beijing, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Mexico, Jamaica, Cuba, London England, throughout USA and Canada.
Really want to travel extensively throughout China. Like to go to Japan and Korea. Like to explore South America and Africa. Would like to go to Scotland and Wales and Italy.
My partner would have to be Asian, prefer Chinese but could be Japanese or Korean or Malaysian or Vietnamese
The perfect romantic weekend would be a drive out to the countryside exploring the beauty of nature. A fabulous dinner in a small town restaurant who gets their ingredients from the local farms followed by a stroll by the lakeside hand in hand. Then we retire to a motel cottage and make love to the gentle sounds of splashing waves all night long.
I am more a listener than a talker. I tend to like being with with people who are more chatty then myself. I will be quite talkative in more serious discussions and debates like politics, the environment, business, philosophy, religion etc. So I would class myself more a thinker than talker. I am conservative in outlook but have a open mind. I am sympathetic to those less fortunate to myself. I am a very family oriented man and highly value the nightly family dinner where the whole family sits together to dine and talk.
A sharing respectful person who will accept what I can give as much as what they want to give me. I am self sufficient I don't need or want someone to wait on me hand and foot. For me the joy is 55% in the giving and 45% in the receiving. My special woman will be passionate, adventurous and just a little bit naughty.
