HOTTIE OF THE WEEK: TIA MORALES
ETHNICITY: Cuban, Spanish, Filipino, Japanese, Okinaiwan and African-American
MY RIDE: I drive a Camry (it’s reliable) but if I had the money I would get a Lancer Evo X or a really big truck because I always thought it’d be fun for a small girl to drive such a huge ride.
FAVORITE TV SHOW/MOVIE: For television it’s a toss up between “Big Bang” & “Friends”. I’ve been watching “Friends” since I was a little girl and it never fails to humor me, but my nerdy side just loves “Big Bang.” For movies, I love comedies, action AND romance. My favorite has to be the “Bourne” trilogy; love those movies. And I got one comment to add: “Aug. 10th, baby!” (Release of “The Bourne Legacy,” with Jeremy Renner and Racehl Weisz)
BOOK IT: I just got into detective fiction during my last semester as an English major at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, and I absolutely adore this genre! One of my favorites was: “The Beast in the Shadows” by Edogawa Rampo (or pseudonym Hirai Taro) because of its riveting suspense and plot twists. However, as you may have noticed, I have a hard time picking just one thing, so I have to throw in “The Guardian” by Nicholas Sparks. IT has romance, suspense and action — can’t go wrong. I can read it over and over and it makes me cry every time. I’ve read all his novels.
FAVORITE SINGER: My best friend P.O.O.R. I swear he is going to be famous. There’s actually a pretty sexy video of me on his youtube page. Find his music on Youtube at: http://www.youtube.com/user/Poorryan/videos
PLACE TO PARTY: I’m actually a good girl. I don’t party too hard, but when I do go out I like SOHO’s and Vice.
FAVE FOOD: Absolutely everything! I swear I must be 300 pounds under this skinny girl facade.
TURN ONS: Wisdom. I love my dorks and nerds. I have a passion for learning so if you can teach me something you have me enthralled.
TURN OFFS: Stupidity, arrogance, bad breath and lame come-ons.
SOMETHING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU: Well, if I told you then it wouldn’t be a secret now, would it?
HAIR AND MAKEUP BY: Headhsots Hawaii in Aiea (formerly in Macy’s Pearl Ridge).
