Member Overview

I feel like a traveller between our cultures, Western and Asian, belonging to both and belonging to neither at the same time. I was born in Singapore, but I've lived in Canada since I was 14. And even though I can (with a little bit of help and patience) read and speak Japanese, Mandarin and Can...
I feel like a traveller between our cultures, Western and Asian, belonging to both and belonging to neither at the same time. I was born in Singapore, but I've lived in Canada since I was 14. And even though I can (with a little bit of help and patience) read and speak Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese, I'm most comfortable in English. I love the food, and understand how important it is to share meals, and to make sure that everyone is looked after; but like a Western person, I understand and appreciate the importance of freedom and and taking care or ourselves. It's an interesting balance, and I feel like I can see the merits of both sides, both cultures. I don't think either side is 'right', but I can see why these different things are important. I am interested in Art and Culture, about the ways people live their lives and make their lives beautiful. Art, Literature, Dance, Cooking, everything. But I believe that I am also rational and reasonable.

I'm looking for someone who is independent, and willing to share their life with a partner who is also willing to share.

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

There are many! Right now, what comes to mind is In the Mood for Love, by Wong Kar Wai; it is the most beautiful movie I've seen. I also love Sofia Coppola's work in Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation.

Favorite Book:

English Patient by Michael Ondaatje, and right now I am really enjoying poems by Gillian Sze, both Canadian authors.

Favorite Food:

I love foods from all cultures. Japanese, of course, but recently I've discovered the amazing use of herbs and vegetables in Vietnamese cuisine.

Favorite Music:

I listen to all sorts, and have many favourites -- classics like Debussey and Chopin, and also David Bowie and Oscar Peterson, to The Killers, Sia, Hozier. Many.

Dress Style:

My fashion sense is simple. I like neutral colours like Black, White, Grey and Navy. I like clothes that are well made with good design. I used to work for a fashion company, and so am a little picky. That said, many of my clothes are from Uniqlo :)

Humor:

I laugh often, maybe sometimes more often than I should ;) But it's all in good nature.

Hobbies & Interests:

I study Kyudo, and practice AcroYoga. I am also learning to dance Argentine Tango and Kizomba, and I have been dancing Lindyhop/Swing for many years. I would love to improve my pottery, but I've been busy.

Travelled:

I've been all over Asia, and I like to revisit countries that I enjoy. I'd like to return to Myanmar, Vietnam, Seoul, I want to travel all over Japan and visit all the prefectures and its many cities. China is immense! I want to visit South America and learn Tango there, and the south of Europe to Greece, Spain and Portugal. I want to go everywhere :)

Cultural Adaption:

It will depend on the culture. I appreciate Japanese culture because it is so important to take care of each other in the culture. Also there is a great sense of appreciation and care for details, and I think this is beautiful.

Romance:

Exploring a city we had both not been to, wandering through its streets and staying up late into the night, starting at lights and quietly talking. There would be good food, good drink, the weather would be perfect, and we'd wake up the next day a little later in the morning, and wander some more. Then we'd stop when we want, rest and waste time together, and enjoy the experience of just sharing time together...

Personality:

I have many sides, and am always thinking, always absorbing this amazing world we live in. I feel deeply, think deeply, but am sometimes like a child. I would like to think that I am always 'here', always present.

My Perfect Match is:

Someone who is attentive to herself, and also the world around her. Someone intelligent and interested, and curious, with many emotions and faces and sides, all carefully considered but natural.

Safety Tip - Do not send money for plane tickets

If you meet someone from another country and want them to visit you, do not send them money to buy a plane ticket. Instead purchase the ticket yourself directly at a reputable online travel site or at a reputable travel agent. Make sure the ticket can only be refunded or cancelled by you and check all immigration rules before inviting someone to visit you. Report anyone who you are suspicious about by clicking the "Report Abuse" icon.
