Passions

COFFEE

Smelling the scent of coffee beans and looking at the chic design is when I know I’m at a coffee shop. And for me, a coffee shop for me is a multi-purpose place. I go there to study, read, catch-up with friends and even first dates. It’s a casual place with a peaceful atmosphere, where I could relax and let my guard down while sipping a cup of coffee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EATING

Craving a food I haven’t eaten in a while, imagining how delicious it looks and tastes and too finally eat it is so satisfying. When I have the time (and motivation) I try to cook up something new, try something new, or make up my very own recipe.

HIKING

Hiking on a trail for hours, going through rough terrain uphill, could be a grueling experience, but for me, it’s wonderful. Weaving through shade and sunlight, getting glimpses of the top and the surrounding area, makes me appreciate the view from the top more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LEARNING

To spend hours on one problem, finding different solutions through trial and error and to finally solve it, is one of my greatest joys. Knowing I could solve it again quicker and easier is rewarding. And to focus my attention on a harder problem, which makes me continuously learn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

READING

To find a great reading spot, I have a set of criteria: an armchair that is tucked in a corner, with a window next to me, as much natural sunlight as possible and most importantly, a book that would make me lose track of time in its story and characters.

 

 

 

DESIGN

The concept of beauty is cultural, subjective and selective, but the urge to create something beautiful is universal. For something that needs to be visually beautiful, yes, it needs to be aesthetically pleasing, but it also must be novel and insightful. When I try to create something, I try incorporating both novelty and aesthetic beauty into my designs.
