1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
I love the word "EMPOWERMENT" - It's breaking the personal limitation with regards to self decision regarding education, mobility, political participation, economic, independency, public speaking, awareness & exercise of rights.

2.How would you describe your husband?
I enjoyed watching "700 Club" - A program dedicated to bring uplifted stories much more from Christian perspective. Every time I watch the show it enrich my soul and keeps me humble. Throughout all my years what kept me grounded is my spirituality.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
I am a self-confessed " BAGAHOLIC" . If sports cars and luxury motorbikes is mens passion, then I can say that its synonymous to womens passion for designer bags. I have this obsessive love addiction on bags. It gave me so much happiness and it is also my stress reliever.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
"A calm sea never made a skillful sailor"...It means adversities and trials is part of our journey...a journey that we called LIFE. If everything comes easy and smooth sailing, we will never learn to deal with disaster when they inevitably arrive.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
I love Sunday - It is a special day for the family. We usually go to the church and pray together. And this is the day were I do my assessment and planning for the next productive week.
