What do you do in your free time?
I watch a lot of YouTube videos on lifestyle and beauty. I’ve always been watching beauty videos but I’ve only recently started paying more attention to them because I’m now working in a more corporate environment. I don’t cook but I have an interest in cooking shows.
Which cooking show is your favourite?
Very old school, but I like Nigella Lawson. She’s not very snobby or elitist about her food, she just does what she likes. The way she describes her food while she cooks is very sensual. Recently, videos with sounds that invoke the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) have become very popular; there are some cooking videos which incorporate both ASMR and cooking, and I used to like to watch those.
If you were to be stuck on an island, and could only eat one thing, what would you choose?
Rice. It’s the only thing I can imagine eating for a long period. Or eggs. I love eggs, in any form. I like scrambled eggs, or good ol’ sunny side up.
If you were to be a dish, what would you be?
I’d be an onigiri (Japanese rice ball). I’m not very adventurous, and I like simple things. I like my routines.
I just want a big dog, like a Golden Retriever or a Labrador. They look very happy when they ‘smile’. My family doesn’t have pets, and I don’t have the confidence to own a pet, so that would be the dream if I could manage the up-keep and everything.
