Just a down-to-earth girl who loves living life to the full. ISFP, dancer, musician, aerialist-in-training, yogi, coffee addict and foodie. Born in London, grew up in Sydney and currently living & working in London (since May 2005) whilst travelling the world as often as financially viable. I have a gorgeous silver spotted british shorthair kitty named Miss Ella, who has me wrapped around her soft little paw – and she knows it.
I am passionate about many things – be it music, dance, aerial circus arts or yoga. I love playing the piano and have been playing for 30 years. I love jamming with other jazz musicians, and have played a few gigs around London. I love dancing – from latin through to street styles – including waacking, vogue, salsa, hustle, samba, bachata, house and hiphop. I love finding that emotional release on the dance floor. I love physical movement – feeling strong, badass and full of vitality – life’s raw energy. Probably explains why I love aerial hoop & silks. I also love the peace and centering that comes with a regular yoga practice.
I love to challenge and improve myself. I love learning new things and being creative. I taught myself how to create videos for the purpose of sharing my life and making friends with people from all over the world. I appreciate beautiful design. I am passionate about good food, good coffee and good conversation. I love meeting like-minded people who have a great sense of humour and energy for life. I love being active, travelling and appreciating the beauty of nature – particularly the ocean. I love being pampered and like to enjoy the luxuries life can offer – especially if they are thermal spa’s and saunas. I love to travel and explore the wonderfully different cultures and places in this world.
I have an intense abhorrence of heavy drinking and smoking. I cannot stand secondhand smoke and have little respect for those who seem to be proud of their ability to get totally wasted every weekend. I can be very quiet and shy at first, which I think tends to give people a false impression of my personality, but once I feel comfortable with someone I can be rather extroverted. Especially if you get me on the dance floor. 😉
I am oriental in appearance, chinese to be precise. Too many have mistaken me for japanese or korean (WHY??) I have long black hair which I have added colour to on occasion. I guess I am considered slim, but that is a relative thing isn’t it. I am generally happy with my body and am always working on improving my strength, fitness and flexibility. It has been noted by some that my best feature is my legs. I hope to try and maintain that impression. I pretty much live in jeans, but in the warmer weather (sadly missing in this sun-forsaken motherland) love the breezy comfort of dresses, skirts or shorts & flip-flops (yes we call them thongs in Australia). I would prefer to appear stylish, as opposed to fashionable.
Oh yeh, and I am a senior web developer by day at a top London digital agency which shall remain nameless.
A note about this blog:
I just want to point out that there is always more than one side to anything I may blog about. I may not always feel that way about whatever it is I am blogging. I think it is important for my readers to remember that I’m only addressing an aspect of my life and how I feel about it at that particular point in time. I may not always feel this way about it. (eg I’m not always down and depressed about life here in London, contrary to what it may appear like from what I sometimes write on this blog). So just treat these blog entries as a snapshot into my thoughts at one particular moment in time.
