I love to travel

Places I have visited

 Solving Crossword Puzzles

I solve crossword puzzles every day!  Solving crossword puzzles on my Samsung smartphone is great for killing time at airports and places where I need to queue!  My favourite crossword puzzle is USA TODAY.   Have never missed a single one.



Making Music on my Yamaha Clavinova CVP-505

I play my Yamaha Clavinova for at least 1 hour each day.  The Clavinova is made for people like me – impatient to learnCVP401 sight-reading, ability to play-by-ear, musically nimble to adapt playing to a wide range of musical instrument simulations and musical genres (bossa-nova, ballads, various ballroom styles, jazz, folk and waltzes).

I also play the clarinet, alto saxophone and flute for relaxation.


My Music

I love bossa-novas and playing bossa-novas, especially the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim (of Girl from Ipanema fame).  My favourite violinist is Takako Nishizaki – she interprets and plays the famed “Butterfly Lovers Concerto” (梁祝) better than any other violinist I know.

My favourite musical pieces:

  • Butterfly Lovers Concerto (Gang Chen/He 
    Zhan Hao & performed by Takako Nishizaki)
  • Violin Concerto (dedicated by Du Mingxin to Nishizaki)
  • 1812 Overture (Tschaikovsky)
  • Violin Concerto in D major Op. 35 (Tchaikovsky)
  • Violin Concerto in E minor Op. 64 (Mendelssohn)
  • Peer Gynt suite no.1 op. 46 (Grieg)russian composers


 My Pets


With Coco, my pet Merle Shetland Sheepdog – smartest and most lovable dog I’ve ever had.

My other dog is Trevor, a golden retriever – very loyal.

I also spend a lot of time looking after my pond-ful of kois.20140214_220152
