About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to see the world to inspire myself. I want to open my mind and myworld to the perspectives of those from other countries so I want to meet as many people as possible.

ABOUT ME

I'm a nice person who has a wide set of skills. I like meeting new people, and I am very easy to get along with. I can hold my own in drinking, and I know when to stop. I am pretty protective of my friends and I always got their backs. I like traveling even though I do not have the budget.

PHILOSOPHY

Everything in Moderation
See it to believe it
Business is the way to go

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I attend local events and post in the online message boards.
Will be open to hosting if I get my own place. (Living with parents now)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Showed a good friend around the Philippines
Met with awesome local CSers in their events
DEFINITELY more to come!

Interests

Things that grab my attention are the "new" stuff that I have never seen before. I like travelling and learning new things, whether it be a new skill or a new hobby. I spend a lot of my time reading about various topics, and I like to make my life exciting by trying out new stuff (which mostly entail eating strange things from other countries)

Music, Movies & Books

MOVIES - Fight Club, Step Up

MUSIC - Classical Music (Bach is the shiz!), Instrumental (Yiruma), and other mainstream stuff (Fun, James Morrison, Owl City, etc)

BOOKS - Positioning - Al Ries and Jack Trout
Malcolm Gladwell Books (Blink, Tipping Point, Outliers)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

visited 14 states (6.22%)

I volunteered to help out during the craziest natural disaster to hit the Philippines, (Ondoy), and was waist deep in mud, was seeing trucks and cars buried under mud, seeing houses with first floors full of mud, corpses under mud, and I still soldiered on with my troupe. It was a heartbreaking scene, but it made me stronger since I know that somehow, the simple act of shoveling out mud from houses ade someone's life a little bit happier.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook a bit so I can teach you some local cuisines from the Philippines. I am a jack of all trades though so I can only teach English or Filipino "properly". I know a little bit of Japanese, Chinese, violin, and longboarding. Some things I want to know/learn are surfing, wakeboarding, trickboarding,
