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?

I have a nagging question and I still don’t know the answer for sure.

The question:

When I walk on the street I occasionally bump into someone (literally), and after that I don’t know if there is a rule, like when I’m walking north, I should step to the right, or to the left? And so, with that confusion, usually I will bump into that someone again a second time.

‘Excuse me…” “Ooops….”

That was embarrassing.

This question came up as we were walking to get our cars after a first date.

So I stopped, right there on the street, and demonstrated. Stepped to the right, stepped up and to the left. He kinda followed, and this demonstration made it look and feel like we were dancing on the street.

Although we didn’t touch, hold hands, or anything, but the proximity has made it quite intimate, and delightful!

Now, why is dancing, especially on the street, so appealing?

I think it’s that spontaneousness, as you lose yourself of time and space when you totally involve in that rhythm and with that special someone that makes it so.

Dancing in the Moonlight

So, have you ever danced on the street, in the moonlight? And how do you like it?

When was the last time you said “I love you..?”

Sadly, when we are secure in our love, we never quite took the time to tell our loved ones how much we love them.

We just assume they know, and know it always.


And how did you say “I love you?”

I recall Anthony Robbins in his book saying a wife complained her husband doesn’t love her.

Husband says, “What do you mean? I just gave you that expensive piece of rock!”

Wife says, “no, no, you don’t love me, you don’t tell me you love me any more ….”

Have you ever made this same mistake? Just because most people are visual and you think that by giving her things, you have reaffirmed your love for her.

Some people, me included, are auditory and kinesthetic and so we need to be shown ways other than visual.

Next time when you declare your love, show it in every possible ways.

Make sure your loved one receives it in the way he/she needs to be received.

And I Love You So

We all have some love songs we are so attracted, or should I say attached, to our dear hearts.  Whenever we hear it, our little hearts just melt and we are so lost in the melody and lyrics, so mesmerized as if we are being transported back in time when in love  …..

One such song is Perry Como’s  And I Love You So.

This song is really simple.  Nothing fancy ….

Yet it speaks so eloquently!

So which song wins your heart?  And which song is a symbol of your love?

Just Sing It

I don’t know about you. But I’m a romantic at heart. If you have been fooled by my cool appearance and straight-forward approach, well, deep down I can’t resist any romantic gesture.

Guess what is the most romantic gesture someone has ever done to me?

If you conjured an image of Romeo singing those love-sicked tunes under the balcony of Juliet, or humming the melody of Gene Kelly’s Singing in the Rain… well, you got that almost right.

Yes, yes, yes… being sung a love song to and at can melt any heart, even the colder and harder ones.

I recall that as he was singing, I was engulfed in those euphoric, ecstatic, delirious and rapturous emotions, so powerful that I was in Seventh Heaven.

He has a very melodic, deep voice which is very captivating.

And on top of that, he sang that in his native language which I don’t understand a single word.

How beautiful can that be?

So, guys, I’m telling you, if you want to be like Elvis Presley or have more women than you possibly can handle, you need to learn to sing.

Love songs like:

And I love you so

Unchained Melody

Always on My Mind

Love Song

Love me Tender

It’s Now or Never

You’ve Lost That Lovely Feeling

I can’t Help Falling in Love

You get the picture.

I don’t care if you sing it out of tune, just sing it.

Sing it with feelings, passion, and with tenderness.

Sing it with vigor and conviction.

Just sing it.
