What is your current state of mind?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
In between showbiz and medicine, but I wasn’t sure which one made more money.
What inspires you?
Good energy and love.
What personal trait do you appreciate the most in others?
I appreciate people who give, who are honest and straightforward.
Do you have a cause or do you support one?
My own personal cause: I go to Ethiopia twice a year with my boyfriend, just to spend time there on our own, befriend the children and village folks, and travel and explore. It brings me down to earth and in touch with the realities of life.
Which living person do you admire most and would like to invite for dinner?
What are you reading?
A book my boyfriend gave me called Prodavnica Tajni (The Mysterious Boutique) by Dino Bucati, a famous Italian writer. I like it as it’s a collection of short stories that is easy to read.
How do you spend your Sunday mornings?
Sleep late and laze around till late noon, take it easy, go for brunch with my boyfriend, go out in our boat and chill out, watch the birds fly and enjoy a quiet lazy Sunday together.
What is your idea of hell?
War is hell.
What is your guilty pleasure?
None, as everything that is pleasurable should not be guilt-ridden. But oh, wait, there’s one: Coming to Singapore for the first time and staying just one day. Next time, I’ll have to stay at least two weeks and travel around Asia.
How do you recharge?
Going to Ethiopia and traveling for leisure, and not for work.

An everyday person in a Woody Allen movie.
What did you believe at 18 that you wish you still believed now?
That life is perfect and once you’ve reached a goal, that’s it. But it’s not so, as we’re constantly working to the next thing. It never stops, life goes on.
