Modobs has posted a challenge for us, and that is “If you were left alone on a deserted island, which celebrity would you choose to spend the time with?”

That’s a tough question, Modobs.

Thinking back, there are many celebrities I find attractive and have some kind of a crush on.

Men like:

  • Brad Pitt

  • John F Kennedy, Jr.

  • Sean Connery

  • Jake Gyllenhaal

  • Abhishek Bachchan

Brad Pitt: what can I say? He’s my voted sexist of the sexist man alive. He caught my fancy in the film, “A River Run Through It “ where he played the reckless gambler and drinker, and in Meet Joe Black, the Death who experienced first love with a human woman.

Guess I would always be attracted to man with a boyish appearance.

John F Kennedy, Jr., who is so elegant and refined, but unfortunately died in a plane crash.

Sean Connery: I always find mildly hairy-chest man attractive, and Sean was extremely sexy in his James Bond movies, and his legs, ooh ooohhh, but rumors has it he beats his wife and he’s been connected to a man’s death.  

Also, I’ve been reminded that at his age, he wouldn’t be fit enough to climb the coconut tree to bring me food, hahaha.. So, sorry, Sean, you are out.

Jake Gyllenhaal: there’s abit of an issue as the sex scene he did with Heath in the Brokeback Mountain was so real and that really stuck in my mind, and so I would feel really strange making love to him!  Nevertheless, he’s so gorgeous.

Moreover, according to wikipedia and I quote: “There is a also a speculation whether he’s bi-sexual, and when asked about the more intimate scenes with Ledger, Gyllenhaal likened them to “doing a sex scene with a woman I’m not particularly attracted to.”  With that cloud over his head, I would have to pass.

OK, who’s left?

Abhishek Bachchan, 31, son of an acclaimed Bollywood actor, Amitabh Bachchan . He attended school in Switzerland and Boston University. While at Boston University, he dropped out to pursue his acting career.


He has started acting since 2000.and has now been in over two dozen movies, and many of them has won him awards.

Not only is he one of the sought-after stars in Bollywood, Abhishek has also been named as Asia’s Sexiest Male of the Year 2006 by a British tabloid. 

Abhishek recently married Aishwarya Rai.  Like a Prince Charming, he rode on a white horse to pick up his bride on traditional Hindu rites.  Oh, so romantic!

Why do I deserve him?

  • He is East Indian, I’m Asian.

  • He stars in Bollywood movies, I love movies and Indian culture.

  • He speaks French, I adore French.

  • He’s over 6 feet, and I like man towering over me, make me feel protected.

What do I know about him?

Not much actually.  From what I can find out he seems a decent, good man.  He’s a mystery for me.  Especially whenever he  has that brooding and lost look which I find so irresistible, and I wanted to reach out to him.


Not only that, in recent years, I have found East Indian, Middle Eastern men so darn exotic and handsome.  They have those big, deep-set eyes, very defined facial structure, and those sexy, full lips.

Another thing I have to give it to Abhishek is:  normally I very much dislike men with beard or goatee.  He’s the only one I find attractive even unshaven.  Guess, that unshaven face gives him a dark, dangerous quality that is very appealing.

In Hindu movies, it is very rare to see steamy, love scenes.  So, that gets me wondering feverishly what would it be like to be kissed and made love to Abhishek, and whether he would be a great lover and all ?!

So, if I were left in a deserted island, Abhishek can sing me some sweet Hindu love songs, chase me around the island, carry me up the coconut tree, and I could lay in his arms, feeling safe and warm… humm…

OK, Modobs, now you have it.

Who can I tag this challenge to?  Hummm let’s see:  Samiha, I know you are taking a break now from blogging, but when you return, I would love to hear who would be the celebrity that you want to spend some time with and you would take this challenge.

Cherished Memories

Do you have some childhood memories that you had, like the first time you had chocolate or ice cream, or the first time you climbed a tree, rode a bike, that was so good that first time you did it, so it got stored in your memory bank forever, and even 10, 25 years later when you think of them, you still savor that experience as if that was the most delicious glasses of wine?

Well, when I was in my early teens, I joined a foreign film club, and incidentially that is a French film club.  So, we always got together on the weekends to watch French film.  At the time, I didn’t understand much about English much less French, as both are not my naive language.  And basically, I was watching and following the action and the drama without understanding much of what really was going on. 

However, I instantly fell head over heels with the language.  I think, wow, that is the most melodic, softly spoken, romantic and sexy language I have ever heard!

Le paradis blanc – Michel Berger

So I had watched many French films, some from the famed actress Catherine Deneuve

Later, when I tried to learn a foreign language, and French is of course on top of the list.

I actually took an university extension French course, and the materials used were from BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation).  I can still vividly recall the first lesson, which comprises of three sections.  First part was a video episode which for that one was a TV competition of questions and answers.  In that episode the script was written to mock one contestent, a blonde woman, and every question being asked either she wasn’t sure of the answer, or answered it wrong, or she would just say “je ne sais pas (I don’t know).”  And the last question, as she again shyly and hesitatingly said “je ne sais pas.” and the host cheered “bravo, mademoiselle, c’est je ne sais pas!” and she won the competition.

French is such a beautiful, but very difficult to learn, language.  So, to this date, I can only say a few words.  But whenever I hear someone speak French on the street, my ears just perk up like a radar and I listen attentively, even though I don’t understand what is being said.

Do you have any such first time experience that you have cherished and loved?

Can you make love out of nothing at all?   No feeling involved, merely lust?

Can you be intimate with a complete stranger, knowing nothing about him, feeling nothing about him, not even being attracted to him one tiny bit?

Perhaps I’m an idealist, a romantic fool,  I know I can’t.

I used to think woman makes love mostly out of something, and man mostly out of nothing.

I once read a personal post about a man asking to meet women, by the number, #126?  Yuck.  Do you want to be a number in a man’s life?  Do you care?  Even how attractive or eligible he is?  I know I don’t.

I never can understand one night’s stand.  Or waking up in someone’s bed in the morning when you only met him the night before.

I guess I’m just old-fashioned.  Have things been changed?  Have we moved into the 21st century that monogamous is now so out-of-style?

All these one night stand, sex buddies, exchanging partners, multiple sex partners, orgies, incest, or sleeping with a married man/woman, your daughter-in-law or whoever, what has gotten into that good ol’  one-on-one love and faithfulness?

I have heard stories of how people boost about their sexual encounters.  They seem to think the more the better, the more the merrier?

Do people still care about loving or caring?  Are we so hedonistic that we don’t care that in so doing we are hurting some other persons along the way?

I agree sex is all good and pleasurable.  And I’m all for gaining new experiences, being adventurous?  But how do we cut the lines here?

Have women become a “deposit box”, and men a shooter? 

What do you think about all these?  Can you make love “out of nothing” at all?

Making Love Out of Nothing At All

I’ve been blogged down, the first time.  I’m supposed to list seven bloggers that I admire the most.

Since I’m fairly new to blogging; and although I love reading blogs I don’t have the luxury to read as many blogs as I would like to.

Yet, there is one blog, What’s Love Got to Do With It that I have consistently read.  I have so enjoyed her blog, the diverse topics she writes, the perspective she shares, and the wide angle she covers .  Not to mention her writing style and her sense of humor.

There are many posts that crack me up. 

Like the recent one: Look What You’ve Done where people make a fool of themselves after …

Some other ones like:

Is It Me You’re Looking For? where women tend not to choose the more attractive men to spend their lives…

Let Me Upgrade You where she talks about wanting to change your partner…

And so, she has me as one of the not-too-secret admirers  😉
