1. Personal philosophy / values:
“Fall down seven times, stand up eight.” I love this quote as I think it’s so true. The only way you lose is when you fail to get back up after falling, paving the path to sure defeat. I believe in getting back up over and over again, no matter how many times you fall.
2. Favourite city you’ve visited and why:
Bangkok. There’s just something about the bustling night markets, the soothing night breeze and the live music. The food never disappoints and shopping is always a highlight — I always look forward to discovering exclusive vintage loot from thrift shops and handmade trinkets by local designers! I also love the Volkswagen camper vans and other vintage vehicles doubling up as mobile cocktail bars.
3. If you could choose someone to have a dinner date with, who would it be and why?
Elon Musk. I’d like to hear about his predictions for technology, given his ability to think one step ahead of most people, and achieve goals they may think are impossible.
4. Favourite book recently read and why?
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. This novel explores innocent romance, comedy and tragedy, all while weaving in several powerful quotes. It also evokes a rare sense of familiarity which many works of fiction fail to achieve. Upon reading further and looking deeper into the story, however, there’s something darker hidden beneath its romantic façade.
5. A “secret talent” you have:
I can rap to a few Eminem songs, such as Mockingbird and Love the Way You Lie. I’m also able to pick up things with my feet easily in case my hands are full…though I’m not sure if that counts as a “talent”.
6. If you could possess one superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation, so I can travel to as many places as I want instantly, and in turn get more time to rest. I’d love to do a day trip around the globe, indulging in the freshest unagi in Japan and authentic paella in Spain, and end off with historical trip to the Colosseum, or perhaps catch the magnificent aurora borealis in Norway.
