1.What’s your favourite Christmas memory?
It’s a toss-up between attending midnight mass at the Anglican Cathedral and then heading home for cookies as a kid, and later, champagne when I was older and seeing the joy on my children’s faces when they were little and woke up to Santa having visited!
2.Where are we likely to spot you this festive season?
Besides work, doing what I love most – traveling our beautiful continent!
3.A song that perfectly describes your December mood?
Amantombazane – DJ Maphorisa x Kabza De Small
4.What is on your music playlist currently?
Ooh, it’s a very mixed bag from the Yanos to classic British Soul, like Soul II Soul and some really laid back new-wave R&B like Elaine and Alina Baraz.
5.What are you reading?
Finally planning to get into Michelle Obama’s Becoming this holiday.
6.Any survival tips for getting through family
dinners/lunches/or having extended family staying over?
Keep it moving 😂 I prefer to not get stuck in the things that are frustrating about family but rather appreciate that we are all gathered.
7.The best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
Jewelry: a beautiful diamond necklace.
8.The one dish you have to have on Christmas Day?
My mom’s chilli stir-fried prawns.
9. What’s on your Christmas wish list this year?
