About Me

Filipina who grew up in province and currently based in the metro. Can sleep all day long but can stay up longer to crazily have fun. I'm a child by heart yet an old soul.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a bit new here but wish I have tried CS long before since I started traveling!

It is a very good platform to meet locals and fellow travelers. I think I'm done being a "tourist" so I really want to travel like a local. Meeting and being friends with locals would be a great experience. Let's talk about anything under the sun. I prefer to know the stories of the people around me. I'm eager to learn the culture, traditions, values and beliefs. Learning the differences and showing respect is the key for better and deeper connections. Though I hated small talks before, I learned that it can be a good start of good friendship and amazing stories.

Traveling taught me humble experiences, life lessons and to trust the good side in everyone and be witty enough to trigger my "harm alarm"😉

Currently unable to host but will be glad to show you around my beloved country specifically to places I'm familiar with. I'm a budget traveler so I can also give a lot of tips for trips and adventures.

Looking forward for an amazing time with you CS friends!

Interests

Just wandering and wondering. Living my life to fullest while trying to keep the balance in all aspects of it.

  • culture
  • traveling
  • hiking
  • food
  • stories
  • island life

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm into inspirational books, documentaries tackling social and environmental issues, funny TV series, web dramas, tear-jeaking movies, travel articles and any type of music depending on my mood like classical to rock. Otherwise, I usually found myself observing people (trying not to be too obvious), eating, sleeping and buying cheap finds.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacking but not a usual one. Why? I tagged along my parents and younger sister. Went to 3 provinces in PH for a very quick 4 days. I just wanted to show them the real me during my backpacking days. It was tiresome for them but we really enjoyed the trip.💙

Oh, here's another story:

Hiked Mt. Pulag (one of the highest mountains in PH) but it left me in awe. As I cant get enough of it, I moved to another province for a twin hike - Mt. Kupapey X Mt. Fato. I've seen the famous Banaue Rice Terraces before but the view of Bontoc terraces from those mountains are damn amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Every day is an opportunity to learn and share. Be it a skill, knowledge, values, culture, tradition or anything, we should learn to pay it forward as a way of paying back.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My thoughts, my stories, my learnings.

Promise, I'm a good girl. Lol. I can be your travel or even home buddy. I can cook filipino food but please keep your expectations not so high. I'm very handy hence very willing to help my host in any ways I can. Also, I'm very tidy person as i will leave no trace just memories (except goodies from PH if they want😂)
