Describe yourself in five words?
Self-made, motivated, ambitious, generous, spiritual.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Put God first in your life and not even the sky is going to be your limit.

What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever done?
Chased after a bus after missing departure time, whistling and waving my hands and what do you know somebody noticed my movements and craziness and behold the bus halted after a considerable distance. I could have taken the next bus but I went monkey for a minute - absolutely ridiculous.

What is your most treasured possession?
My intelligence; it may not be tangible but I treasure it.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Losing a loved one to death.

Do you have any strange hobbies?
Yeah, like I like to close my eyes and start creating pictures and scenes in my head and making up words that don’t mean sense to people but me. I like to speak a language that I created called phinglish, conversing with myself.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
Nothing I love the way I was created.

What is your greatest extravagance?
I can spend so much on music.

What have you got in your fridge?
Cheese, fruits, steaks, water, milk, butter, mixed veggies, stir fry, bacon, ham so much!

Keys, my phone.

Going to work and coming home from work and the journey to church every Sunday.

Who are your heroes in real life?
My grandmother.

When and where were you happiest?
When I gave my grandmother some of my earnings from my first pay check; a proud moment.

What’s your biggest vice?
I’m addicted to the Internet.

What were you like at school?
Reserved, shy, quiet, bookish and very much a nerd.

What are you doing next?
I’m going to tweet as much as I can before I sleep.
