|Occupation||Postdoctoral Fellow & Adjunct Assistant Professor|
|Introduction||I regard myself as a musicologist, and probably a musician as well, just awarded a doctorate in popular music and currently a postdoctoral fellow and adjunct assistant professor of musicology at National Taiwan University. I hate hot weather and prefer reasonably cold climate, and that's why I once fled from Taiwan to Scotland. Unfortunately, I'm in Taiwan tortured by the heat at the moment.|
|Interests||Reading, Cooking and dish-washing, Singing Western vocal works and Chinese opera (I'm a bass for Western works and a tenor for Chinese opera), Taking cold showers all year round|
|Favorite Movies||Cinema Paradiso, Il Postino|
|Favorite Music||Gustav Mahler's Kindertotenlieder, Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations, Toots Thielemans's The Brasil Project|
|Favorite Books||Kate Fox's Watching The English, Jeremy Paxman's The English: A Portrait of a People, Pablo Neruda's Los Versos Del Capitán|
Why don't you ever wear a scarf? It doesn't need to be cold outside for your neck to feel naked.
Feeling naked doesn't matter, as only through feeling cold do I recognise my own existence.
