Anything you would like to share with our readers.

Most of your readers are women right?? Heyyy ladies! See you next year.

What 3 products you love the most for this summer season? (In Technology, Cologne, and Cars)

Nothing says summer to me like riding my motorbike. It’s the best feeling. I don’t really rely on too much technology other than my phone. As for cologne, I have a difficult time deciding but possibly Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, or Gucci Guilty Intense. See! I never know how to decide when it comes to cologne. 

If stranded on an island, what are 3 items you must have?

An endless supply of food, that’s all you really need –stranded or not.

What are 3 things that must be in your bag or car at all times?

As long as I have my phone and my credit card, everything else is replaceable.

Are you part taking in any TV series/radio this Ramadan?

I’ll be starring in a commercial, but I did not have time for any shows because we recently just got done with SNL’s first season.

Do you ever watch/listen to your own work?

I don’t usually catch up, but I do sometimes I record SNL because I barely have a day off the whole week, and I prefer spending it with my wife and daughter.

What are the series that you are addicted to in Ramadan?

I am only here in Ramadan the first few days so, the only thing I enjoy is Sohour and Iftar with my friends before taking off. Which is also a shame because most of my friends are participating this year in different series so by the time I get back, I will have missed out on plenty and possibly have no idea what anyone is talking about.

What are the foods and beverages that you cannot enjoy Ramadan without?

Whatever is available, I am not picky when it comes to food.

Do you prefer cooking or dining out? (Iftar/ Sohour)

Late-nights are what it’s all about. So it’s Sohour for me.

What are the Ramadan traditions that you love the most?

I love how it’s the time when everyone gets together. I love spending late-night gatherings with my friends. My second favourite part is that I don’t even have to fast, so I just reap all the benefits! Haha! 

How do you prepare for Ramadan?

I usually don’t prepare because I travel. It is my only time off during the whole year, so I just take off to Canada.
