I'm Filipino. I found the group just by doing a search on meetup. :)
I work in the healthcare industry in a small company that builds clinical research databases for a wide range of clients. My official title is "Senior Analyst," for whatever that's worth. My birthday is May 21.
I tend to be a little shy at first in new environments (particularly those with a lot of new people at once), but once I get to know people a little better and the ice has been broken I loosen up fairly quickly after that. I suppose I can make some interesting conversation, but I'd let others be the judge of that--I definitely have a quirky sense of humor that isn't to everyone's taste, so that perhaps can make for interesting conversation on its own.
I suffer from a lack of rhythm so dancing's out, but other than that I love trying new food places (from food trucks, to holes-in-the-wall, to michelin-starred restaurants), activities like hiking, outdoor games, etc., and in my downtime like vegetating with my favorite tv shows (currently on a BBC kick). As for KTown, I would have moved there if it weren't for the crime rate: great food (Boiling Crab *and* endless BBQ in a 1-mile radius? Surely you jest), karaoke, easy-access boba and late-night cafes make for a very happy me.
I love most types of food but I definitely gravitate more towards Asian food in general, second to that would be Italian. Out of Asian food, my favorite is probably Vietnamese (I love pho dearly). If we're talking really specific Asian food, it has to be the juicy pork dumplings at Din Tai Fung. NOM.
