Office is staycation, everything else is adventure: Amer Jaleel

Ask Amer Jaleel, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, Mullen Lintas, about his life outside work and he confesses to rejuvenating over pool volleyball with chilled Corona on the side, some i-pad time and binge-watching session.

“Office is a staycation. Everything else is adventure,” says the witty Chairman. The jokes keep coming as we chat about his weekend life and we finally unravel how the boss relaxes on weekends after an action-packed work week. Read on…





On a typical weekend you will find me... 
Sun-running at Carter Road or Jogger’s Park. That is nothing but a pretentious expression to say I can’t wake early and therefore have to bake.

My idea of relaxing is...
Pool volleyball with chilled Corona on the side.

One vice I cannot do without...
I have recently discovered I can do without that one vice. I don’t want to hex it by mentioning it : )

I love a staycation/adventure...
Office is a staycation. Everything else is adventure.

I confess, I am...
Having some difficulty cracking the questions here

I spend me-time on...
An iPad.

The last show I binge watched...
The Sopranos. But binge-watching for me is watching one episode per day and not flirting with another show during that period.

I can make a meal (cook) ... to save my life...
I can cut mangoes without blunting the knife

A skill/hobby I want to learn this year...
I have been a stubborn Blackberry user till last month so I have to say learning the digital keyboard will take up all of my free time this year

My next vacation/adventure will be ...
Somewhere out there : )
