A minute with Michael Antoniou Entrepreneur and owner of Aquatherm and Universal Decking

Where do you live?
With my wife and 3 yr old son in Paphos

Best childhood memory?
Getting a Raleigh Griffter bicycle for my birthday, it was the nearest thing to a motorbike I’d seen.

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?
We frequent many, it would be unfair to say, but my favourite dish is fresh seafood

What food would you really turn your nose up to?
Fast food mainly

What did you have for breakfast?
Yogurt with musli and a granola bar, oh and a double espresso.

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
I’m a night person, so the perfect night would be a night out in Vegas or New York City, with my wife

Best book ever read?
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I love the way it portrays the power of a dream.

Favourite film of all time?
Favourite movie, that’s a hard one, there are so many, but it has to be The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O Hara. I love it, because it has love, drama, comedy, and great acting, it’s just a lovely story, it was my mother’s and grandmother’s favourite also.

Favorite holiday destination?
Favourite holiday destination is America, I just think its the entertainment capital of the world, especially Orlando, Disney World etc etc

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
I’m listening to Frank Sinatra & Johnny Cash

What is always in your fridge?
Water and veggies

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
I would prefer to live in the mountains (Troodos) in a wood & stone cabin, with a huge open log fire place, lots of land and no neighbours.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would love to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger, because he has achieved so much in his athletic, acting, and political careers. I really would love to chat with him about loads of stuff, especially his movies.

What is your greatest fear?
I don’t fear anything really, I believe our destiny is mapped out already, so what’s the point in worrying.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
If I only had 24 hours to live, I would spend it showing my love for my wife and son, any way I could, in words, kisses and huge hugs.

Tell me a joke…
What did Jay-z call his girlfriend before they got married?
