What is on your bucket list?
I am too young to even think about the bucket list.
If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
I just go if I want… life is too short to postpone.
If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
When my children were teenagers – I would say “half-day – my son, and half-day – my daughter” to see the life from their eyes to learn something useful for me as a parent; but now – since I raised my children, I am spoiling theirs.
What did you want to be when growing up?
An engineer – everyone in my family including my uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. were engineers (except my mom, she was a high school math teacher; maybe my hidden talent of teaching I got from my mom). Engineer was the only profession I considered since I was old enough to even consider anything.
You are happiest when…?
My family is happy and people I associate with are happy.
