A guy approaching mid-life. Bean counter by profession. Main interests:
1. Movies, movies and movies. Can’t get enough of them. I watch movies from all over the world and from all eras, whether it is silent movies, black and white or in whatever form. Has a general prejudice against current Hollywood movies as I think they are mostly crap. Talk to me about movies and if you are similarly excited about movies, I think we can be good friends.
2. Playing Weiqi, or Go as they also call it. This is a board game of strategy, invented in China over 2,000 years ago. I have played international chess and chinese chess before but these two doesn’t even come close to Go, in my opinion. The simplicity of Go gives birth to millions of possibilities. It is at once strategy, philosophy, life. Fascinating.
3. Fascinated with business management, economics, philosophy and history.
4. Also loves to play poker, especially Texas Hold’em and Omaha Hi-Lo.
5. Likes to travel. Who doesn’t?
6. Mesmerized by Gustav Mahler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Ming Hui Fen.
7. Loves Haruki Murakami, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Rabindranath Tagore, Lin Yutang, Fyodor Doestoevsky, Anton Chekhov.
8. Admires The Buddha, Karl Popper, Immanuel Kant, Lao Tzu, Wu Qingyuan, Peter Drucker , Sun Tzu and Nietzsche.
