Fun Facts

  • Through mediation I learned that my mind is always thinking of the future, so my goal in the new year is to focus on the present (irony intended)
  • I am a Tetris wizard every night on my phone – it helps me relax after a long day of performing magic in my community
  • Writing and receiving letters in the mail is my aphrodisiac
  • My daily consumption of fresh mangoes and Bah Bins (fried coconut patties) during PST was probably the reason my nickname changed from “Nok noi” (small bird) to “Nok yai” (big bird)
  • I overcame my biggest fear last month, and now I am certified to scuba dive anywhere in the world #faceyourfears
