About Me

Nelson Jong

Ever since I was little, I loved action movies especially the ones with martial arts. The highest belt I got in Karate was the brown belt (second highest colour you can get, but there are many levels in brown belt before getting a black belt). As you may not know, I am Chinese not Korean. Therefore I know kung-fu by default.

I got into my creative side during high school and did some short films. At the same time I was having a whole tech savvy phase. Which caused me to take computer science, computer art, computer engineering and film classes throughout high school. Out of all the courses, I enjoyed computer science the most, that is why I graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor in Computer Science/Software Engineer Option. (Hopefully, making good use of my education)

On my spare time, I love to read mangas, not for the story alone but for the artwork as well. I am an intense gamer. I play various games such as Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Dota and Starcraft. But nowadays, I find myself watching American/Hong Kong/Taiwanese/Korean/Japanese dramas. There just isn't enough time to watch them all!

One of my life goal is to travel the world! I want to see the world first-hand. I don't want to be the one listening on other people's adventure, I want to be the one telling it! I want to explore their cities, eat their food, see their architecture, grasp their history, and live their culture. I don't want to live a life full of regret. I want to live a life of new adventures. It's time to explore, to dream and to discover!
