Would the Louvre Museum be an ideal home?

Take me to the Louvre

The Louvre Museum, in Paris, France, would be my “Wonderland”. A former palace for French kings, the famous monument now houses hundreds of artworks, sculptures and other valuable collections.

It would be awesome to live in a huge art gallery. Every morning, I would see so many things that I really like and I would feel relaxed. It would be different from living in a city where people are very busy and have no time for each other.

Guten tag

Germany. Compared to other Western countries, things are much cheaper there. Also, there are a lot of public holidays in Germany.

I say: My favourite subject is...

A place of my own

Singapore, because it is always hot there. Also, the city’s housing policy is much better than that in Hong Kong. For example, around 80 per cent of Singaporeans live in government-built flats which are much bigger than the ones in Hong Kong. Those flats are also very affordable. If I lived there, I wouldn’t have to worry about a place to live.

Aloha to Lilo and Stitch

Hawaii. Ever since I watched Lilo and Stitch, I have found Polynesian culture fascinating. Their folk tales are very mysterious. I want to experience their traditional fire dance and see the beautiful flowers on the islands. I also want to see the diverse wildlife.

Spicy food for days

Thailand, because things are very cheap, there are lots of yummy spicy food, and the people are very friendly!

I say: If I had a million dollars…

NBA fanatic

America. I am a big fan of the NBA, so living in the US would give me the chance to see NBA games. Also, I would be able to see my favourite basketball players in person. Then there are the burgers – they are so huge that it’s worth living in the US.

Hong Kong is my home

Hong Kong. The city is a food paradise, with dishes from many countries around the world. Among Hong Kong’s many attractions is its wonderful scenery – for example, you can go to Victoria Peak or take a ferry to the outlying islands.

Safety first

Japan. It is a very safe country. Very few murders or robberies take place there. In addition, the people are extremely polite and respect others. They always say “sorry” or “excuse me” when they do something that might be annoying to other people. The Japanese also enjoy a high quality of life because their products are very safe.

What’s your dream superpower?

Under the sea

Under the sea. I would be able to see the marine ecosystems that exist there, including coral reefs, as well as magnificent creatures such as whales, sharks and turtles.

Out of this world

Uranus. I know it sounds ridiculous, but we can always dream. The main reason is that it rains diamonds over there. I would be able to sell those gems and earn millions of dollars when I go to Earth on holiday. Also, I would offer rich people the opportunity to go to Uranus for a million dollars. I would donate most of my money to feed poor people in developing countries.
