5º Se você pudesse escolher para cantar uma musica da sua irma, qual seria e por que?

. Escrever o livro foi uma tarefa difícil?
Is writing a book difficult?
*I enjoy writing & any kind of creative expression.

. Alguma passagem do livro é baseada em você ou em algum conhecido seu?
Is this book autobiographical?

*I think it is impossible to write books or music without being somewhat autobiographical...If someone detached themselves from their medium then it would be left without a soul. Wouldn’t it?

. Como ocorreu a idéia de escrever um livro?
How did you get the idea to write this book?
*I have always wanted to write books. In university I would always choose courses with essays because I thought they were the easiest. This idea for the book came to me from a person I met who had schizophrenia and was living in a foreign country. He inspired me ~I wanted to write a book that was dramatic, but, also one that had spiritual meaning with a cultural consciousness in mind and he fit in quite perfectly.

. Qual a razão de você morar na China?
Why do you live in China?
*My husband.I came here for a short visit and fell in love so I stayed here to teach.

É um bom país para se viver?
Is it a nice place to live?
*I love living’s a dream. The best weather, the best, friendliest people& it’s very convenient. I prefer living in big cities. I believe 1.5 million people live in my city Kaohsiung and I love that! It’s very exciting everyday.

. Você sempre esteve próxima da Nelly?
Were you always close to Nelly?
*We’re usually on different parts of the world but I see her at leaste twice a year or so...& it’s quite sad that I can’t see her or my family more...But especially when we were younger we would hang out a lot.

Vocês são irmãs bem unidas? Are you close?
*We are sisters that love eachother. My husband says, he thinks that she loves me more than I love her.. but i dont know. Haha....She is my little nerdy sister that used to wear coke bottle glasses.I still see her like that sometimes.

. Quais são seus planos futuros após o lançamento do livro? What are your next plans?
*Continue writing my next book, I want to continue co-producing /promoting stand-up comedy shows in Asia. I also enjoy fashion and designing clothing so I’d like to continue to do more of that in the future.

. Qual CD da Nelly é o seu preferido?
What is your favorite CD of Nelly's?
E qual canção é a sua favorita?
What is your favorite song of hers?
*Explode~ it reminds me of my childhood and coming of age.

. Daqueles ídolos seus citados no blog você já conheceu algum que seja famoso?
From those heroes you posted on your blog; which ones have you met?

*...i have too many dead heroes posted on that blog–I’ve met tons but the ones that I remember most was Steve Nash, ex-president of Portugal Jorge Sampaio and the President of the European commission Jose Manuel Barroso. All of these guys I met before my sister became famous.
But, U2 was amazing...i met them during their tour in Dublin which Nelly opened that night.

. Você já viajou junto com a Nelly em alguma turnê dela?
Have you been to any tours of Nelly's?
Yes, so many! Tokyo, Western Europe, Eastern Europe~ Russia, Western Canada, Middle/ South U.S.A.

1) Lisa, alguma vez você já sentiu inveja da Nelly em algum momento da sua vida ?
Do you ever envy your sister?
* Not envious. But living in my sister’s shadow often makes me question whether I’m any good, or whether my success is because of her fame. I also feel bad that I can’t ever hang out with her on the streets alone exploring a city together or something....For example, I’d love to go to Amsterdam with her . I love that city! I’d love to go to a pub & people watch and have some beers with her in peace. There are always so many people around... she is never alone. Being able to hang out with my sister one- on- one would be would be just like old times.

2) Que celebridade você ja conheceu ?
What celebrities have you met?
* Seen many at festivals backstage...the ones I remember the most were: Posh Spice, Gwen Stafani & Kylie Minogue.

Qual você mais gostou de se relacionar ?
Who was your favorite?
* I LOVED meeting Chris Martin from Coldplay. He is a deeply compassionate person & lover of all life forms& easily, the sexiest man on the planet. My sister & I got into some heated wrestling matches over how much I flirted with him backstage.haha….

3) Qual espectativa você quer que o seu livro cause no público ?
What do you want people to take from your book?
*For people to question/discuss life and spirit more.
