I enjoy challenging myself and pushing my limits – I compete in
triathlons and enjoy the rigorous training that it entails. I race about
20 times a year, and have qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World
Championships thrice. On average, I swim 6 – 8km, cycle 150 – 200km and
run 40 – 50 km a week.
Fun Facts About Me:
Huge history and mythology buff. I enjoy reading about the
Early Modern period of European history, and I love Greek, Egyptian and
I took a gap year after graduating from law school and spent the
year competing in triathlons around the world. I survived on prize money
and when I was back home in Singapore, I worked as a personal trainer
for additional income. It was tough but probably the best experience of
my life so far.
I enjoy traveling to new places in an unconventional way, usually to
the horror and aghast to some of my traveling mates. I don’t usually
have a scheduled landmark list that I need to see and enjoy wandering
around the area even if I am lost. Also, I walk everywhere – even if
I’ve run for 2 hours earlier that morning.
