In Her Own Words

About her

I am a rocket factory worker turned author, fun-loving and lovable, a sensual woman. A proud mother of two beautiful Euroasian daughters. A Chinese with Latin blood. And a dreamer.

Hailing from a poor working-class family on the banks of the Yangtze River, I was taken out of school at 16 and put to work at a military factory. Learning English has changed my life and brought me to England more than thirty years ago. It's been a long journey and I feel extremely fortunate to get where I am now: to be able to pursue my passion for writing and many of my interests. A full-time writer (in English), I am not a prolific one: I’ve long decided that it is more important to live an interesting life than to achieve highly. I am warm, kind, curious, and a lifetime learner. And I'd like to think I am feminine.(except when I laugh too loudly) Comfortable in my skin, I get along easily with people and I have many friends all over the world. A seasoned traveller, I've tasted the golden peaches from Samarkand, watched the mass games in North Korea; trekked in the Tajik mountains; camped in the Mongolia steppes; danced in Cuba; and hiked up to Mount Everest. I also lived in Uzbekistan and America. A nature and outdoor lover, I enjoy taking long walks and hikes. I take very good care of myself, exercising daily and eating healthy but adventurously.

The challenges I've experienced have taught me to appreciate what I do have, and I am very good at squeezing little joys out of life. I have so much to give.

An excellent and creative cook, I have a big appetite for food and indeed, for life.

About her ideal match

A man with a sharp and curious mind; a gentle and warm heart; and a decent-sized ego (i.e, not oversized), well-educated, well-read, literary and cosmopolitan. He is reasonably easygoing, not too set in his ways, I hope, and he is not too emotionally constipated. Someone with a few interests or passions, hopefully, in literature, current affairs, the theatre, world cinema, or some other creative activities or intellectual pursuits. I find the drive and energy in a man most attractive. Please be a keen reader. More importantly, please be nice. I value kindness more than anything else.

It'd be great if he is also interested in traveling and exploring other cultures. (ps, someone doesn't rely too much on package holidays!)

His location isn't that important to me: being a writer, I can be anywhere as long as I have my laptop with me.

If you bother to write, I'll always reply.
