FAVOURITE THINGS

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - TV TRIVIA -

Af­ter hang­ing up his yel­low skivvy, for­mer Wig­gles star Sam Mo­ran is now en­ter­taing kids with his own TV se­ries Play Along With Sam on Nick Jr. The per­former shows off his mu­si­cal tal­ents in the in­ter­ac­tive and ed­u­ca­tional se­ries aimed at preschool­ers. TV Guide caught up with him to find out about his favourite things. EN­TER­TAIN­MENT Movie: I have re­cently re­dis­cov­ered The Sound Of Mu­sic. I loved it as a kid, but now as a par­ent I ap­pre­ci­ate it from an en­tirely new per­spec­tive. Book: Most of the books I read th­ese days are to my daugh­ter at bed­time. So my favourite is prob­a­bly Go­ing On A Bear Hunt or Room On The Broom. TV show: I’m such a fan of The Good Wife. It’s just smart drama. Band or singer: Ste­vie Won­der and John Farn­ham. Their voices are just im­pos­si­bly good. Al­bum: My fa­ther is Scot­tish so I was in­tro­duced to the Pro­claimers long be­fore 500 Miles. Their first al­bum This Is The Story is just two broth­ers with a gui­tar. Each song is cap­ti­vat­ing. Karaoke song: I Be­lieve In A Thing Called Love by The Dark­ness. I like the looks on peo­ple’s faces when they see a chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer able to sing it. Gadget: All gad­gets. But my iPhone is never out of arm’s reach. LIFE­STYLE Hol­i­day spot: I have trav­elled so much that I re­ally just love be­ing at home. Thing to do on the week­end: Sit at a cafe with my fam­ily and the news­pa­per read­ing comic strips with my daugh­ter. Place to go to re­lax: I love sit­ting in a park with as lit­tle dis­trac­tion from the out­side world as pos­si­ble. Hobby: I am so for­tu­nate to do so many var­ied things I love for a liv­ing. If I didn’t get paid for what I do, it would be my hobby. Sport to fol­low or play: I was 182cm tall at 14 years old so I played AFL as a teenager. Go the Mighty Swans! Din­ner con­ver­sa­tion top­ics: Movies gen­er­ally. Ev­ery­one has seen one. HOME Room in your house: The shower. I get my best ideas there. Place to hide from ev­ery­one: I’m al­ways play­ing hide and seek with my daugh­ter and my favourite place to hide is in her cubby house. Art piece: My wife and I bought a beau­ti­ful paint­ing in Venice and tracked down where it was painted. We spent time en­joy­ing that area. Item you can’t live with­out: My iPhone. I feel dis­con­nected from the world when the bat­tery dies. Lux­ury prod­uct: Jeans. Not ter­ri­bly lux­u­ri­ous, but if I’m go­ing to wear some­thing as of­ten as I do jeans, I’m go­ing to get the best pair I can af­ford. FOOD Meal of all time: I had the best Le­banese ban­quet in Abu Dhabi. I’ve eaten Le­banese count­less times, but this time, ev­ery bite was ex­quis­ite. Dish to cook: Roast veg­etable lasagne be­cause it is fab­u­lously de­li­cious. Fam­ily recipe: Zuc­chini frit­tata. It’s a recipe that has been used through­out my fam­ily as an easy and tasty way to get the chil­dren eat­ing veg­eta­bles. In­gre­di­ent: Chilli. I also love co­rian­der. Guilty plea­sure: Pizza. Bar: Any rooftop place where you can un­wind and take in city views. Restau­rant: Sake´ in Syd­ney’s Rocks, it has the best Ja­panese food. Cafe: I love Cafe XXII in Pyr­mont, Syd­ney. It used to be my lo­cal cof­fee place and I still drop by when­ever I am even re­motely in the area. STYLE Style icon: Ge­orge Clooney is the epitome of how ev­ery man wants to age with style. Fash­ion de­signer: I’m not a big fol­lower of fash­ion. I do love de­sign­ers like John Var­vatos and Tom Ford though. They com­bine com­fort with a sense of el­e­gance. Piece of cloth­ing: I have a pair of leather Var­vatos Con­verse boots I would wear ev­ery­day if I could. Shop: Ap­ple Store. I will ar­gue there’s as much style in that store as any fash­ion label. Artist: I like exhibitions of un­known artists just start­ing out. How­ever, I have al­ways loved Sal­vador Dali and Andy Warhol-style pop art too.
