And now for some­thing com­pletely

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - NEWS - Chris Said

and, if not, would you like to and for what cause?

I was very ac­tive in lo­cal youth groups, or­gan­is­ing var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties such as hikes and song fes­ti­vals and we used to do reg­u­lar vol­un­tary work as well. One mem­ory I still cher­ish is when we spent a few days in Si­cily help­ing dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren. I would also love to spend a few weeks do­ing vol­un­tary work in a Third World coun­try.

What is the favourite place you have vis­ited out­side Malta, and why?

To date my favourite is New York, in that it is so dif­fer­ent to the Euro­pean cities I have vis­ited and the vibe and va­ri­ety in the city it­self are so im­pres­sive.

Where would you like to visit but have not yet had the op­por­tu­nity to do so and why?

I’ve al­ways wanted to visit Brazil but haven’t had oc­ca­sion to yet: the coun­try has fas­ci­nated me since I was young.

What was the most bor­ing gift you have ever re­ceived?

The per­son who gave it to me might be reading this and I wouldn’t want to be rude.

Do you know how to cook?

I am no Jamie Oliver, but I do help out in the kitchen ev­ery now and then.

What is your favourite dish?

Some­thing typ­i­cally Mal­tese, like braġoli or oc­to­pus.

Do you play any in­stru­ments?

No, I don’t, although I did learn to play the gui­tar when I was young.

De­scribe a typ­i­cal re­lax­ing day

It would prob­a­bly start with a long break­fast at home with Linda and the chil­dren and then, de­pend­ing on the sea­son, ei­ther a walk or a swim. Watch­ing a good movie in the evening or hav­ing friends over for dinner would wrap it up very nicely.

Do you pre­fer tea or cof­fee?

Cof­fee

Do you pre­fer to wear shorts, trousers or jeans?

It de­pends on where I am, but shorts are al­ways very com­fort­able.

You pre­fer sum­mer or win­ter?

Spring

Choose a fe­male MP you would ask to have dinner with you

Maria Deguara – she has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence to share and as a new MP I can share some of my own.

...and a beer with whom - liv­ing or dead?

Ian Rush

Cheese­cakes: do you pre­fer ri­cotta or pizelli?

Pizelli.

What is your favourite film or TV se­ries?

Life is Beau­ti­ful

With whom would you pre­fer to be stranded on a desert is­land?

Some­one who’s bril­liant at build­ing boats.
