i am an indonesian-chinese female. i am in my late 20’s, married with no children. i left home at the age of 15 to study interstate (and later on, overseas) and have not lived full-time with my family ever since, so i am not used to having people telling me what to do. i find that suffocating and very annoying.  so far, i have lived in four cities, three countries, three continents. i currently reside in a small coastal town called ålesund in norway (population: around 40,000).

i have an inexplicable fear of height and snakes. standing on a second floor balcony looking down makes me dizzy. looking at a picture of snakes gives me the creep.

i hate confrontations but am scarily stubborn and opinionated. i am also one of those very emotional people who cry at anything and everything.

i love reading and writing. reading takes me away from reality, writing gives me freedom to express myself. i also love sports (as a spectator) and in 2002 i fell madly in love with footy (australian rules football). my team is the brisbane lions.

i live in a flat with a kick-ass view with my other-half (MOH), two cats, two birds (given away on 15. april) and a goldfish. yes…. my life is crazy/beautiful.
