Interview someone — a friend, another blogger, your mother, the mailman — and write a post based on their responses.
INTERVIEW WITH MYSELF:
What’s your favourite charitable cause and why?
We’ve always have sponsored children from different parts of the world since we got married, i.e. it has been 29 years since we started having sponsored children. Why? Because we want to give these children some hope and help. We usually have children from developing countries such as the Philippines, Zambia and Vietnam. We exchange letters, pictures and news from our part of the world to theirs. If children are still too young to write, they send us their drawings.
What colour do you feel most comfortable wearing?
Red – my favourite! Since I was a child, I’d wear red and my sister wore blue, even if they were the same style or material.
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know)
A tough question! OK, probably Einstein (to talk about his theories about everything and relativity and how they could be useful), Beethoven (to give us a rendition of one of his symphonies) and Dalai Lama (for all his positive and peaceful inspiration and motivation).
List: What are at least five places you’ve enjoyed visiting?
I’ve enjoyed visiting Santorini (magnificent caldera and food), Paris (“we’ll always have Paris”), Rome (an eternal city, where I can return again and again), Victoria Falls (magnificent falls, plus the safari was wonderful) and of course, some islands in the Philippines (El Nido, Palawan and Maniwaya, Marinduque).
In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?
I’d rather be a passenger. I’m not really keen on driving, even though I’ve got a car. I just drive to the station to take the train, go to the gym and meet friends. No long distance driving for me.
If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
I’d definitely go, especially Puccini’s operas – I love them! Give me La Boheme and Tosca anytime!
Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not necessarily have to be a sentence.)
Smile! Go for it! Life is short!
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
Oh, a tough one! I always think of my life as full of adventure, but at the same time, I’m happy and contended with my life. If I really have to choose, it’s got to be the second one, for the secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family, without such wide swings of fortune and mood.
