Questionnaire extraordinaire

Text: Adibah Isa

The founder of Amber Lounge, Sonia Irvine, tells us what she'll be doing if she wasn't gallivanting about exclusive Grand Prix parties

What is your favourite word?
Amber, of course!

What is your least favourite word?

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Amazing music.
A good song inspires me to be creative, spiritual, and emotional — sometimes all at once!

What turns you off?
People without a sense of humour!

What is your favourite curse word?
I'm Irish so swearing is almost second nature. I don't think I have a favorite curse word and if I did, I don't think I could say it here!

What sound or noise do you love?
The noise of Formula 1 cars accelerating.

What sound or noise do you hate?
Fake laughter!

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Skydiver! I'm never scared of a good challenge.

What profession would you not like to do?
Any profession where I'm bound to a desk. My job allows me to travel to all of the amazing F1 races around the world and I love being at the heart of the action!

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Sonia, your mansion in the sky and unlimited supply of chocolate are ready for you!

Amber Lounge will be held on 19 and 20 September from 11pm till late. Tickets are available here.
