Paddler Profile - Jojopo(o)po(o)!

When's your birthday? February 29th
[note: except according to FB, it's the 25th]

Everybody loves their dunk day!

If you could have an endless supply of any 3 food items, what would they be?
Udon, spaghetti, annnd black bean curd noodles (zha jiang)...I LIKE NOODLES

How long have you been paddling and what were you thinking when you got into Space?
I started June of 2011 w/ Dragonauts and September-ish with Space
[note: "and what were you thinking"?!?!????? TELL USSSSSSS]

Thanks James and Sammi :]
Who got you into paddling and why do you do it week in and week out?

I was supposed to join awhile back but that's when I was a badminton maniac (im rusty now) haha then one of my friends from Dragonauts just gave me the forms, so I just signed up. Then I started going to Space practices because James and Sammi. And some other Spacenauts thought we try it out :D What gets me to go to practice early weekend mornings are the people without a doubt.

Under what conditions are you paddling at your best?
When I am not drained and in a happy la la la mode

Is there anyone non-paddling related in your life that motivates and inspires you?
There is this badminton legend, Taufik Hidayat, but I don't play it anymore but he can still motivate me! I mean he does the splits to get the birdie over the net. Other than him I don't think there is someone that inspires me now...wait no. MULAN, duh~

Favorite or notable Space Dragon moment(s)?
~everybody have a good time~ the flashmob at TI of course.

Can you spot the time traveler?
If you had a working time machine for a single day, where / when would you explore and why?
I would go back to the 70's NOT for the drugs and stuff though! But for the way they dressed and the hair styles haha. It looks....interesting 

What do you do when you're not paddling? Hobbies, activities, interests?
school/homework, drawing, painting my nails, or hanging out with my family and friends

Any advice for newbie paddlers?
Don't be intimidated by the first practice, because soon you'll be able to be like everyone else. Keep going out to practice{:

How do you prep yourself for a Race?
ummmm hellweek? ... and trying to eat as healthy as possible. Sleep!

Do you have any paddling related goals at the moment?
yahh, to not get called out on as much and be strong like the other Space ladies

Most interesting character you've met through the team?
probably Devant......."OH *snap*!!"  Arlene too! She's cool with the lollipop in her mouth during practices
Not sure that "interesting" is a sufficient word to describe these two... <3

Best thing about being a Space Dragon?
Feel like an ADULT! hahaha I feel like I'm at school with a group of friends kind of thing. So far with I think that Spacies are mature and smart but only when they need to be
"adult"... "mature"... "smart"... yup. Super common words to describe the Space Dragons...

If you were stranded on an island, which 3 Space Dragons would you want to be stranded with?
Who wants to be stranded on an island with me!? Cuz if I pick people who don't want to be with me, they'll probably eat me first.
Silly mei mei, a lot of people would want to be with you and [prolly] wouldn't eat you first. You're too small.

Name something that our readers don't already know about you.
I laugh and talk while I'm asleep
