I am an Ox and an Aries—passionate, unwavering, someone you want on your team! I'm a successful advertising professional, an aspiring filmmaker, and a sub-4-hour marathon runner. I backpacked across Europe in high school, lived a summer cross-country-back-packing in Alaska, spent a semester in Paris and a summer in Cannes, honeymooned in Bhutan, and look forward to Scotch-tasting in Scotland in fall. My favorite movies are "In the Mood for Love" by Wong Kar Wai and "Blade Runner" by Ridley Scott. As a child, my favorite author was Enid Blyton. Now I love escaping in the books of Salman Rushdie, Isabelle Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Jose Saramago. I drive a 6-speed Audi TT convertible, am lovingly wedded to a tall handsome drummer, and love Rhone-style red wines (Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah). I've been told that I sound like an old French lady when I speak in French, a middle-aged British matron in English, and a child when I speak in Cantonese. I went to St Paul's Convent School in Causeway Bay in HK.
I travel a lot. When I arrive at my hotel, I like unpacking and arranging my things neatly right away—toiletries, clothes, books—it makes me feel settled, like I'm "at home." I like "homey" feeling boutique hotels like Kimpton's and Joie de Vivre, love the Mandarin, and avoid the W like the plague (can't deal with the ungst-ungst-ungst music!). But I also like privacy and independence, which is why I generally avoid staying with friends and family.
