♥ My full name has Muslim, Christian and Hindu origins. Yeah, global citizen indeed.
♥ I cannot swim. I tried to learn but I was too scared of water. I will hopefully work on that soon.
♥ I was vegan for roughly eight months. (six months strict + two months occasionally vegetarian). The process itself wasn’t as hard as I had imagined it to be since my appetite isn’t big to begin with, but I was annoyed that I had to check the ingredients’ label every bloody time I went for groceries shopping. I stopped during summer holidays, as it is very hard to maintain a vegan lifestyle in a non-veg Asian family.
♥ I have learnt nine languages so far, but I am only fluent in four of them. Bengali, Italian, English, Hindi, French, Latin, Japanese, Korean and Arabic. ( I own qualifications for all of them, except for Hindi and Arabic ) I am planning to take the national Korean and Japanese language proficiency exams soon and I have also been debating whether to learn Chinese or Thai next or just focus on my current ones. Hmm…tough choice.
♥ I love reading history, philosophy and literature books. I will keep this short. Favourite Philosopher: Socrates and Plato Favourite Literature Book: Dante Alighieri’s Divina Commedia (mainly Inferno) Favourite historical era: French and Italian Renaissance.
♥ I like Anime/Manga, Kpop/KHH and Bollywood songs and I play console games. Yes, you can call me a loser, nerd or geek and laugh at me whatever makes you feel better because I don’t care about your unrequired opinions.
While South Asian people grew up watching Kuch Kuch Hota Hain and Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham. I watched the good old 60s-80s movies. I am a huge fan of Old Bollywood era. Nowadays I don’t really watch any commercial Bollywood movies anymore but I enjoy listening to their OSTs.
I have been into Korean pop since mid-2010 but after 2NE1′s indefinite hiatus followed by disbandment (still salty) I stopped listening to Kpop but I do follow underground Korean rappers and most of YG Ent. artists and no I do not like Korean dramas (too cringe-worthy).
I loved Anime and Mangs since I was a kid. You could say I was a borderline Otaku but now I just follow One Piece.
Look at my man Trafalgar Law
I have been reading more manga than following their corresponding anime (if available). My current favourite is Oyasumi Punpun.
As far as gaming goes, I used to play a lot before but currently, I just play fighting games such as Tekken, Street Fighters sometimes Age of Empire and The Sims etc.. Seriously, I only love 90s games.
P.S this is me playing:
♥ I tend to believe in Astrology. I do not let it influence my life completely but let’s say, I use it as a general guideline.
(Sagittarius girl here hehe)
♥ I am afraid of commitment. This is not only from a relationship point of view but life in general. I cannot stick to one task, one environment etc.. “That’s the thing about me being afraid of commitment, I can just leave. Sure, I might miss you, but the overwhelming fear will shadow that” -cit. Anon
♥ I LOVE East Asian Horror movies (and psychological thrillers too). Well, I love those genres in general, regardless of their country of origin. Also, did I tell you that I am a sucker for urban legends?
♥ I enjoy drawing. I loved History of Art in Italy and I enjoyed drawing with sanguine crayons and using other conventional techniques such as water color and oil paintings but right now I am focused on Digital Art. I am really enjoying Manga Studio and Photoshop and I would really like to learn animation in the near future.
And these, my folks, are the ten general facts about me. I will probably do a more random version of this in the future. Until then, have a nice time.
