1: What’s your typical day to day outfit/signature look?
WELL THAT DEPENDS ON MY DAY BUT FOR THE MOST PART I WORK & LIVE IN A MUSLIM COUNTRY AND I LIKE TO REALLY GET IN THERE AND WORK SO I DONT WANT MY APPEARANCE TO DETRACT FROM THE TASK AT HAND.

THE NORTH OF BALI IS AMAZING, I LOVE PEMUTERAN…THE JAVA SEA IS SO PEACEFUL AND PURA LEMPUYANG..IT IS IN THE MOUNTAINS ON THE EAST SIDE OF BALI, YOU HIKE FOR ABOUT 3 HOURS STRAIGHT UP THROUGH THE CLOUDS.
