You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
What kind of fascinating people? I’m not particularly interested to meet them, if they are just celebrities. But if they are, say, my favourite authors or someone great in the field of science, I’d love to meet them! I don’t mind going to the party by myself.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in Manila – a big city. Yes, I like it, very interesting and it’s got everything – the noise, pollution, people, shopping, jeepneys, universities, cinemas, malls, etc.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I’d always wanted to be a doctor. Or, that was how my family wanted me to become when I grew up.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful that we’re not coughing anymore, that we’re healthy and back to our normal routine – gym, walking, meeting friends, having coffee and lunch, swimming, etc. We’re really looking forward to our trip to India – yay! Two weeks of sightseeing, tiger spotting, curry eating, shopping, fun, fun, fun!
