About

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.

    He visitado tu blog casualmente, debido a una visita a YOUTUBE, y sinceramente me gusto como cantasté “Eternal flame”, es lo que me ha llevado hasta tu blog, y veo que tienes pendiente una visita a España, según tu album fotográfico.
    Solo desearte suerte.
    Un saludo…………….Charlitos.

    Hey Kaz, how are you? Don’t know if you remember me back in Tuberavers, but yeah I’m still here surfing for jazz vids hehe! And yeah, thanks for answering my Q in your KAQ!

    Anyways, glad to see that you’re still out there doing your thing. Just don’t forget to take care of yourself a little more; I know it’s really tempting to try and excel in a lot of things, and success is very addicting alright, but there are more important things in life, you know? Sometimes it’s better to just loaf lazily and bum around, just chilling and all. Err, sorry if I sound like I’m preaching and all hehe. (-.-;)

    Anyways, yeah just wanted to say “hi!”. BTW, damn what are you feeding Ella!?! She’s gone really big! O.O

    OK, so yeah, take care! (^.^)d
