Personal Sketch

Shine loves traveling, watching movies and TV series.  Sex and the City is always on the top of her list of favorites.  Life’s big questions raised by Carrie Bradshaw obsess us as well.  It is always nice to find some time to think in busy life.  Her recent favorite is The Vampire Diaries. Her favorite character in it is Stephan Salvatore because he is brave, caring and of course, pretty good-looking.
