Personal Interests

  • Sports: I love playing badminton and football(Socker).
  • Cooking and eating: I'm a horrible cook but still I can't stop myself from doing experiments. Thanks to everyone who (has to)eat those, especially my flatmates.
  • Reading story books and listening music.
  • Watching movies: I watch all sorts of movies. I have a large list of movies those I want to watch as soon as I get some leasure time(which is already very hard to get and getting harder every day).
