About Me
Quote of the Day: Focus on making little happy moments. Life is made up of many little moments.

I believe in meaningful connections where we both create many little happy moments for each other, as friends, activity partners or more. Friendship is a good place to start.

Relationship (including friendship) is like a plant; it starts from a seed. Let's water & fertilise it, and see it bloom!

I believe in investing in a nurturing relationship where we support each other to become the best version of ourselves.

I like people who take some initiative and with a just-do-it attitude. Life is too short to spend wondering the what-ifs. If you like my profile, 'favourite' me and message me to say hello! Looking forward to hear from you! :-)

10 Random Facts About Me:

1. I'm an inherently optimistic go-getter. I move mountains if I believe in something.

2. I've been known to queue up to buy takeaway food for the homeless guy outside.

3. I'm not a tree hugger but I do what I can to protect & preserve our environment.

4. People who got to know me instinctively trust me.

5. I enjoy outdoor activities - fresh air, sunshine and nature.

6. I do like gals who take some initiatives. *wink*

7. If I message you, you can be assured I have thoroughly read your profile, and I feel that we have a high likelihood of being at least good friends. To me, looks only capture the attention but personality captures the heart. So, it helps if you have written something meaningful in your profile.

8. I am horrible at noticing hints!

9. I love sushi and seafood.

10. I am naturally curious and love learning new things.

11. I am not great at blindly following rules.

12. Sociable and friendly but prefers communicating in smaller groups or on 1-1.

13. At work, I gather people together and harness their collective wisdom to build things.

14. I obviously can't count! ;-)

What I’m doing with my life

... making the most of every day: learning, doing, loving.

That includes volunteering at a non-profit organisation as a project manager.

The first things people usually notice about me

- I am friendly
- I am wearing sunglasses when outdoor (because I am somewhat sensitive to bright lights after LASIK)

The second things people usually notice about me:

- I am trustworthy
- I am considerate of the needs of others
- I am open-minded and could see both sides in any argument
- I am not bound by the material world of wealth or fame
- My mind and heart are deeply-seated in inner peace and I am fearless of most things
- I bring my own (sunny) weather with me

Mostly Soundtracks, Instrumental, Classical, New Age and Pop, but I enjoy others too.

Favourite musical: Les Miserables
Favourite classicals: Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D major, J.S. Bach's Air on G string
Favourite oldies: What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong), Stand By Me (Ben E King)

From the dead-boring (obviously not to me) non-fictions to anything that tingles the senses and emotions.

Some of my favourites:
All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten (Robert Fulghum)
Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus (John Gray)
Treasure (Clive Cussler)

I like reading, so please fill out your profile in full as I am the sort of guy who actually reads *everything*. ;-)

Not a great fan of spectator sports in general.

Always keen to try new things.

Am a mix of outdoorsy, homey & nerdy.

The things I could never do without

1. Freedom from excessive materialism and consumerism
2. Human kindness, love & affection
3. Sense of adventure in life
4. Humour and playfulness
5. Open mind, tolerance and compassion.
6. Nature and environmental conscientiousness
7. Eternal optimism

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Somewhere and something we both enjoy. Could be a picnic at a national park, a little hike along the coast, or a day of wine-tasting, and anything in between.

TIPS: If you are thinking of messaging me, here are some conversation-starter ideas:

Perhaps tell me:
1. Your name.
2. What you like about my profile / what you think we have in common.
3. What you would like to do if we meet up in person.

PS: If you only have 1-2 photos or have written nothing meaningful in your profile, I may think you are an axe-murderer sitting behind a computer. ;-)

PPS: I joke a lot, so please don't take whatever I say too seriously!

PPPS: I like people who are open to new experiences, fun, independent, slim/fit, kind, humble and health-conscious.

PPPPS: Like you, I have a rather busy life. If you do message me, please understand that I couldn't always reply straightaway. Particularly because I am not one of those people who check their phone every 2 seconds. Hahaha... So please bear with me. I will try to reply as soon as possible. Thank you.
