can speak: English and Tagalog (Pilipino) - fluently; Japanese - almost fluently; French and Spanish - intermediate level; Mandarin - beginner level; can also understand Bicolano (a Philippine language my Mom also speaks); have attempted learning Latin, Italian, Portuguese, German and Russian. I would like to learn Arabic or Hebrew someday.
am a cat person but I love all animals.
love films by Tim Burton and M. Night Shyamalan.
like so many TV shows but if I had to pick my top 3, they would be "Friends", "Seinfeld" and "Game of Thrones".
am interested in topics like world history, languages, religions and cultures, geography, physics, astronomy, the supernatural, ancient astronaut theory, computers (UNIX), evolution, vampires, just to name a few.
listen to almost all musical genres but my favourites are old skool electronic (dance) music (techno, acid house, electro, EBM), electroclash, minimal/dark/cold/synthwave, synthpop, 80s synthpop & new wave, 50s & 60s doo-wop, 60s pop, psychedelic rock and folk rock, 90s alternative rock, noise rock, baroque, and Mediæval music.
enjoy DJing (tune in to my show The Intergalactic Wasabi Hour on live on Tilderadio!).
love to sing and dance (to old skool rave tunes)
am Roman Catholic but I prefer being an omnist (I believe all religions are valid and am willing to practise them all if I can!).
work full-time in the HR field.
worry a great deal about the environment.
lean towards centre-left to left wing, politically... somewhere in between social democracy and democratic socialism... I support a non-partisan unbiased symbolic leader or ruler such as a constitutional monarch.
