The Contestants

Which answer do you like BEST? Vote below.

This round we asked: What is your favourite part of your daily routine?

Contestant 1

With homework to do and tests to revise, students have to find their own way of releasing stress. My method is also the favourite part of my daily routine. I have a 1.5-metre-tall inflatable plastic punch bag at home. I kick and punch it every day after school to release stress. This punch bag routine also ensures I get at least 10 minutes of exercise a day.

Contestant 2

As students, we have similar daily routines. My favourite part of it is perhaps unusual - the battle for time. Every day we have tonnes of stuff to do, like homework and revising for tests, but I love challenges - especially overcoming them!

If I can manage myself and my own life, I have no reason to fear anything else, right?

Contestant 3

My favourite part of my daily routine is waking up. To me, a new day means a new start. I wash away all the negative things from the previous day and get ready for the upcoming challenges I have to face.

Mornings are also the time when my battery is fully charged and I feel most confident.

Contestant 4

Just like all other teens, I love listening to music. I do it every day as part of my daily routine: when I'm on the bus, when I'm on my way to school, and even when I'm just lying on my bed, killing time.

I also like reading. I can do it anywhere and anytime. Both activities allow me to feel emotions I can't express in words.

Contestant 5

I love waking up every morning, as I feel great looking forward to spending time with the people I love and giving thanks to God for giving me this new day. A brand new day symbolises hope and gives my life meaning. Preparing breakfast and other simple chores are the simplest form of happiness.

Contestant 6

I most look forward to lunch hour, as I get to socialise with my friends. I love this hour of relaxed conversation among my friends about random topics. It's a time I treasure because I get to bond with people I might end up knowing for the rest of my life.

Contestant 7

The favourite part of my daily routine is reading before going to bed. Books are my medicine: when I feel sick or tired because of pressure and a heavy workload, reading heals me. I appreciate the inspiring ideas and the beauty of language in great books, and I'm touched by some stories. I love losing myself in a world of books!

Contestant 8

Showering! It is not just a time to refresh myself but also a good way to wind down and meditate. After a long and stressful day at school, I like to chill out and lose myself behind the shower curtain. There, I can sing like Eason Chan and shake it like Psy. It prepares me for the upcoming challenges of a new day.

Contestant 9

My favourite part of the day is waking up in the morning and plugging in my iPod. I love waking to the blaring sound of my favourite songs and dancing around to them. It's early in the morning so I can't sing out loud, but listening to music helps me to get pumped up for a new day. It also helps me to resist the temptation of going back to sleep!
