Some elaboration[edit]

I'm a newcomer, editting-wise, but I've always been a Wikisurfing enthusiast. I've been browsing around other user pages and I know this page can use a lot more work, so that will come. In the meantime you'll have to bear with this hasty list of random facts.

I am:

  • here for fun/out of boredom.
  • personally quite fascinated by the Babel language ranking system - as you can see I've been having fun with it.
  • very much Chinese, but brought up in Australia and Singapore, so I can't write in it as well as I should.
  • a book and movie enthusiast.
  • a music lover.
  • bugged by spelling and grammar mistakes to no end.

For now I'm sticking to cleanups until I find something I can confidently contribute to.

I also play The Game, and have discovered how to create links.

See you around!

I believe that a person should always be open to learning and experiencing new things, because it's one of the reasons why we're alive.

As a result, and with the inspiration from some of my friends, I would like to document some of the things I've found here at Wikipedia. I think these pages are really worth looking at. Sometimes I may also add "Wikijourneys", which is what I call the following of a pathway from one Wikipedia article to another through links.

This is on my user page as it illustrates my interests and keeps track of some pages that I've read.
