The Top 10 Blog Interview With….. @Iconic88

It’s a delight to welcome Mahei as this weeks guest in my Interview series. Mahei, who may be better known to you as @Iconic88 is a great Twitter character to follow for all the fun, super connections and fab links to found in his Twitter stream.

Mahei’s Twitter bio really says it all about him, just click on the image to pay him a visit. He can also be found on Facebook and please also take a moment to have a look at Malaria Envoy which is a special United Nations cause that Mahei is supporting.

If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed one luxury item what would it be and why?

A genie in a waterproofed luxury fitted out bottle. Why? because Genie promises that if I take great care of him, he’ll grant me UNLIMITED wishes. Now, that desert island wouldn’t be that deserted if I wished all you guys reading this were there with me, right!! :))) WOOOOOOOT!!

The first person I would wish to have with me will be @Bridget_Cooks because when it comes to logistics and cooking, she’s a whizz and I’d want everyone to have a great time here with us.

Do you have any phobias?

Losing people I love.

Who inspires you and why?

People who have been through hardships, experienced life’s challenges and are ‘angels’ in their world

Which animal would you most like to be and why?

This would be a tossup between a humpback whale and an eagle. A humpback whale because I’d have the largest playground in the world and be able to visit Vava’u (Tonga) annually. An eagle because it’s always fascinated me how these majestic birds live and fly. The symbolism of both is powerful yet humble.

What is the one thing in life that irritates you the most and why?

Not much really. However, finding food on store shelves that have expired or discover rotten fruit and veges after purchase is pretty close.

If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?

I gotta say Peter Petrelli (from Heroes) is really cool. Having the ability to absorb and mimic the powers of other people with special powers would enable me to change the world and fight the forces of evil. Having the Genie would also amplify the effects of this superpower.

What do you think you will be doing in 10 years time?

Making positive changes on another scale.

What is your favourite guilty pleasure?

Ice cream.

(Editor’s note – should have guessed that one!)

You are holding a dinner party and you can invite 3 people (living or historical), who would you invite and why?

You (the reader), @bridget_cooks (The Internet Chef) and my Genie. Genie will provide us any context, people, food and whatever we need for you to have an enjoyable evening.

Can you tell us one thing about yourself which would surprise people who know you?

The thing that would surprise people who know me would be if I didn’t have surprises. Life is a box of chocolates ;)

Many thanks Mahei for an enlightening and entertaining interview.
