I keep changing my mind, as I love many different types of movies! :) Right now it's 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'.
The first book I wrote, 'Dismantling the Sicilian'...just kidding! The book which had the greatest influence of me is probably 'How to Win Friends and Influence People' by Dale Carnegie.
I love all kinds of food, if it's cooked well! But my favourite foods are Mexican and Vietnamese! That also fits well with my dietary requirements (I am gluten and lactose-intolerant).
I can get into almost any type of music, and I listen to a variety at home. I really like rap (especially Eminem) for the wordsmithing involved, but most of the time I listen to alternative rock, such as Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin and Nickelback. When I feel like electronic music, I listen to Deadmau5, while for metal I prefer Metallica. Lately I've also been listening to Evanescence.
I wear black clothing nearly all the time, it is my signature colour! :) I dress well and tidily when I go out, and occasionally I'll mix it up with my green and gold Australia shirts from representing Australia in the World Chess Olympiad ;)
As for my physical appearance, I'm a fairly typical Anglo-Celtic - brown hair, green-brown eyes, olive skin with a short to medium beard and moustache (it depends whether I visited the barber recently :P). I have nimble hands and I'm an endomorph, meaning I have a more chunky build!
My sense of humour is extremely broad and versatile - I can find almost anything funny! :D Sometimes I laugh just because the other person is laughing! In turn, I make a lot of jokes/say witty things when chatting, and it's pretty easy to make me laugh, but quite hard to offend me.
My main passion is chess, which I've been playing since I was six years old! But I have a lot of interests outside of chess - namely, I love watching good movies, reading interesting books, writing articles/books, talking to my friends, helping others, walking, eating great food, looking after my family and learning new things :)
I have travelled to so many countries, some several times (mostly through chess tournaments), that it's hard to keep track! I've travelled to: New Zealand; Indonesia; Malaysia; Singapore; Thailand; Sri Lanka; United Arab Emirates; Turkey; Azerbaijan; Georgia; England; Isle of Man; Norway; France; Italy; Austria; Fiji; and I am probably forgetting a few!
I would love to travel to Japan, China and Vietnam, to learn more about the cultures and meet some amazing people :) Hopefully I will visit all three in 2019!
I've wanted a partner from a different culture from a young age, since I've found I relate more in many ways to the Asian cultures and values than my Western upbringing. I also think it's much more interesting to have a partner from another culture, as that way you are always learning something new, and the relationship is never boring :) I embrace the challenges that will come from trying to understand one another better :P
My perfect romantic weekend would be at home with you, knowing you care about and love me.
I'm generally quite gregarious, but I do like some time to myself as well! I'm fairly laid-back, relaxed and spontaneous, joking around a lot with my friends and helping them out when they have some problems.
My perfect match would be a Vietnamese woman who understands me and is loyal, committed, caring, loving, diligent, happy, teaches me new things, and makes me smile and laugh :) I want a partner who also values family, who is open, honest and supportive. It's important to me that she doesn't smoke or drink too much.
