Farming (I have a berry bush farm in Nepal - Mainly raspberries and blueberries)

Movies (I go to see practically all the premiers) and Korean dramas (I guess, I'm the only one in Finland...)

Music (mainly singing Gospel - has been a bit neglected because of these academic works. Hence the location)

Music is mainly related with my "hobby" of church-going (which is also a bit neglected because of the work)
