I'm bookish and an avid traveler; lover of good eats, arthouse and foreign films, and enjoy meeting new people in new settings. Originally from Singapore but lived in the UK and Italy and been in the USA for 13 years. Dog/cat lover, enjoys the outdoors i.e. hiking and running. Favorite places to visit are coastal & remote places - hope to visit Patagonia and Papua New Guinea some day soon! Update: as of 2014, I've returned to Singapore and am working as a conference producer - the previous parts of this description still apply!
