1. Just about anything my husband, Michael, cooks - he's a great chef and shops weekly at Coronation Market. I prefer grilled tenderloin, it's the perfect temperature, pasta al dente every time and veggies crunchy.

2. Can't think of one (and I'm sure there were many) so I'm either getting Alzheimer's or they're not worth agonising over so I've deleted them.

3. Hands down, my four grandchildren - Matthew, Annabella, Maximillian and Mimi.

4. I can tell you two - I get stage fright and I can't reverse (literally and figuratively).

5. To aggressively broker peace and fight terrorism.

6. National Museum in Taiwan - I've never seen so many beautiful artefacts and artwork in one place.

7. Equality for women. Because I'm a woman, naturally. Seriously, because given the opportunity, women would BE THE CHANGE.

8. A horticulturist - I love my garden.
