Oh Yeah,
Im Male, 26yrs old,
married to a beautifull Malaysian (technically Iban) wife,
with a 4year old son Ronan, and 18mth old daughter Celine,
im into computers, linux administration, tinker in website design,
baking, cooking,
Fishing is something i really enjoy in summer on my little 3.5mtr boat,
love action movies, especially with Jean claude van damne, Raulph laundgren,
etc
and also enjoy growing Veges in the garden.
Spending time with my kids is also a high priority (end up in the dog box if i dont hahaha) but seriously, they need that bonding time. :)
my son is only 4 but already into computers, and hes already giving me a run
for my money in online games like Soldier of fortune, quake 3 arena etc.
Gaming is another big hobbie :)
thats about it for now! :)
