Q&A

  • What I’m Usually Up To:
    Sitting a cafe sipping on an iced latte or cortado
  • My Favourite Food:
    I think there is nothing more satisfying in life than a good noodle soup.
  • On My Bucket List:
    I'd really love to visit another planet or at least venture out into space. There is nothing that fascinates me more than the cosmos and space exploration. Trying to understand why we exists and what our role is in the universe is a big reason for why I'd want to visit other celestial bodies and get a glimpse of what the Earth looks like from far.
  • My Deserted Island Disc:
    Acabou Chorare by Novos Baianos , or Crooks and Lovers by Mount Kimbie
