What's On

Favourite bar/club?

I don't go to bars or clubs. I'd rather have a romantic dinner. My favourite restaurant is Tokio Joe in Lan Kwai Fong.

What's your poison?

Sugar. White not brown.

What do you only do for pleasure?

Spending time with my children, like taking them to the beach or telling them stories.
