What I’m listening to: it depends on my mood, but usually any old-school R&B jams. When at the gym I prefer Eminem or any rap music that kicks in my adrenaline. On my iPod, the top tracks would be Uptown Funk (Mark Ronson), Wish You Were Mine (Philip George), Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran) and Animals (Maroon 5).

What I’m reading: I love manga, such as Naruto and One Piece. I also read a lot of newspapers.

What I’m watching: I’m scared of TV dramas because they cause inevitable addiction. I can see myself losing entire days and weekends watching Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, but I haven’t really started yet. When it comes to movies, Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer was really good and so was Interstellar. After a long day at work, it’s great to unwind with a comedy such as Bad Neighbours or 22 Jump Street.

What artists I’m following: I don’t really follow artists (like painters and such), but I do follow the work of actors such as Washington, Jennifer Lawrence, Will Smith, Mark Wahlberg, and Leonardo DiCaprio. In Asia, I follow Tony Leung Chiu-wai. I would like a career like Leung’s because of his amazing achievements. He started at the bottom and climbed to the top.

Where I’m surfing: I’m more of a 9gag person as I’m into the silly stuff in life – this kind of humour really relieves stress. I’m always checking out viral videos on YouTube and local news and gossip on Apple Daily.
