Where do you live?
I live in Nicosia with my wonderful husband and my two beautiful kids.
Best childhood memory?
Going on family trips and exploring the world.
Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish? What food would you really turn your nose up to?
I have a few depending on the mood. Although I’m a big fan of the Japanese cuisine, I love homemade Cypriot traditional dishes. The one thing I would turn my nose up to is raw onion.
What did you have for breakfast?
Mango and toasted cheese sandwich
Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
I can be both as long as the day doesn’t start extremely early. Perfect for me is a day with balance (exciting work, family fun, relax, nice food) surrounded by people that make me laugh and be comfortable.
Best book ever read?
The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. I like its Use of language and sense of humour.
Favourite film of all time?
The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of my favourites. I love its aesthetic.
Favourite holiday destination? What’s your dream trip?
Kenya. It was such a thrill. Being in touch with nature, so close to wild animals, away from reality, away from technology. It was such a unique, amazing experience. A dream trip would be to go on Safari with my children.
What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
I’m going through a jazz and blues phase. The classics.
What is always in your fridge?
Peanut butter and milk.
Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
Dream house would be something cosy, urban, with a nice garden.
If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
So many…impossible to choose.
If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would hug my family tightly and dance around with them.
What is your greatest fear?
Tell me a joke…
Why did Mozart kill his chickens?
Because they always ran around going ‘Bach! Bach! Bach!’
