More About MeIm quite old school in my thinking.. and somewhere im quite proud of it. In my younger yrs, ive been very rebellious, but with the yrs passing by, ive become calmer, quite a thinker, perfectionist, still very stubborn sometimes, want to change the world, love a good laugh. Like the company of people with substance - who genuinely want to seek the truth, and who have the guts to stand up for what they believe in- believe you me-thats the toughest thing to do in todays world.. n i also believe that we live in a world of ironies - and therefore in the midst of all these serious issues, i feel everything has the potential to be funny.. so yea heres to having a great time here on planet earth and also to sharing a bit of what we have with the less fortunate. cheers!
Political AffiliationI dont wanna comment about that.. atleast not here !
Who I Would Like to MeetI feel a woman needs to be graceful to catch my attention, intelligent to hold my attention, and kind to win my affection. nShe needs to be a person whose smile emanates from her heart.nnI know thats maybe not what you were expecting to read... but i think the brief was "ideal" :P
Favorite TV ShowsHow i met your mother, Lost, Fringe, Weeds, Californication,
Favorite MoviesComedy, Action, romantic comedy, artistic, life/docu
Favorite Booksyea sure, i love to read. mostly on my list are management books, inspirational quotes, magazines on cars and bikes, music journals, fashion occasionally, not too much into fiction.. life is too interesting to read about someones imagination.. id rather just write a fictional book than read someone elses fantasy.. unless the author is a really cute woman and i know her personally ;)

Friday or Saturday Nights Iwell im new to Toronto, so im gonna have to figure that out for my new life here... but normally im with friends on weekends, either at a great restaurant and then heading out to someones house for a party or out clubbing.. alternately there are quiet evenings too, either just watch a movie, or depending on work - stay back and do the needful, or just read a book.. yea i been reading a bit lately, mostly management , philosophical stuff - naah not into fiction - dont have that much time or the enthu to read a cock and bull story when theres so much to life thats there to find out.
