Life goal: Enjoy what I am doing. Be myself and stay weird!
My proudest achievement so far: Travelling solo in United States, try to live like a local and fully immerse in their culture.
Indulgences: Eating CHEESE CAKE, Singing Karaoke, doing sports, watching animation, playing video games.
Inspirations: Interacting with different types of people can always triggers intellectual exchange that inspires me. It could be personal experience, life motto, thought, idea or dream. I always find it fascinating to see how people interpret things at different levels and from different perspectives.
Your favorite movie and why: Inside Out. It is more than just a cartoon movie as it brings message and teaches life lesson. It projects how our brain feels if they have feelings. There are five basic emotions portrayed in the movie which are joy, sadness, anger, fear and disgust. The animation depicted how the emotions affect us to encode, store, retrieve, and forget our memory. Thus, how these emotional memories actually influence our personality and characteristic. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend checking out Inside Out. I did quite a lot of reflection after watching this movie.
