"You are Joseph the dreamer of dreams, dear Jude, and a tragic Don Quixote. And sometimes you are St. Stephen, who while they were stoning him, could see Heaven opened. O my poor friend and comrade, you'll suffer yet!"

Jude the Obscure - Thomas Hardy


I live in a big city in a small town in South East Asia. In real life, I read books, catch trains and do stuff for a living. My interests are wide, and can vary from Plato to poetry. I suffer from acute wanderlust, and travel occasionally when fate (and finances!) dictate. I love food and coffee and am possessive over my ipod. I am neither misanthropic nor morose, but have a generally cheerful disposition. I am also frivolous and find the funniest things funny. I think in disjointed sentences and tend to be sarcastic. I love witty conversation and heartbreakingly beautiful lyrics and would give my Prada handbag to be able to write both. (not that I have a Prada handbag, but you generally get the idea.)

I am also not very good at writing biographies. Anything else you'd like to know?
