I always have music or radio on in the background... it makes me
somehow more productive.
I like classical (Beethoven, Mozart, Dvorak, Bach), songs and
singers who write and sing with 'meaning'... songs from the 80s and
90s, Don Mclean, Elton John, Billy Joel, Celion Dion, Enya, Josh
Groban, Coldplay... a few personal favourites: Annie's Song,
Streets of London, Somewhere only we know, Drops of Jupiter, Time
to say goodbye, Imagine, I say a little prayer, Holiday in Spain,
Return to innocence, Bittersweet symphony,
You are what you eat... I like cooking, and mostly use natural /
organic foods, foods not contaminated with all sorts of chemical
and additives. It's better for you, and the environment too!
I tend be vegetarian at home, but flexitarian when I'm outside...
seafood is great, chicken and duck too, but not a big fan of red
meat... though I do get the occasional craving for a big juicy
And yeah, "I'm lovin' it" when I try out the local McDonalds
whenever I'm in a new country...
