Design

  • I therefore appreciate people with good tastes and design thinking.
Photography
  • Photography gives you a chance to slow down and pay attention to beautiful moments. Carpe diem.
  • It's also a good measure of one's taste.

For fun:

Helping others
  • Very often you would find me sharing my knowledge or resources with other people, as I find joy in helping and lifting others.
  • However, I could get upset if one doesn't value/treasure my sharing. I only want to help motivated people who stay grateful.
Driving and road trips
  • Driving gives you granular control over finely-engineered mechanics.
  • The freedom on where, how, and how fast to go.
Running
  • A great way to train one's perseverance and endurance.
  • Also a precious time to think alone.
  • A proper pair of shoes and earphones matter a lot.
