About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To share people everything I know about my culture and the places I had been to...as well as learn from other people anything they can share about their travel experiences and their own culture.

ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in the Philippines. Then I worked in Malaysia for almost 2 years. I just moved to Canada recently.

I'm a fan of the world...and I love exploring it. I started traveling late. But I try to do it as much as I can. My goal is to travel more and learn more cultures that are different than mine. I like discovering nice places and exciting stuffs to do everywhere. I want to see more of the world's hidden treasures and to meet people who would want to share their travel experiences. It makes me appreciate the difference between all cultures and makes me believe that each and everyone is unique. Travelers are the people I get along with easily. It's just amazing to know that there are people who sees the world the way I see it.

PHILOSOPHY

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt. It’s a rush of fragments, all jostling for attention. Some good, some bad, some pleasurable – and some excruciating to remember.”
– Anthony Bourdain

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted twice since I moved in Canada. I also met some couchsurfers around my area.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had the best first experience with CS in Perth Australia...and I knew from then that I would continue and gain more friends from here. That's why when I moved to Canada, I do my best to meet more Couchsurfers.

Interests

Traveling, Music, Art, Language, Culture, Food, Photography...

I always read facts about traveling, cultures, visas, events etc...anything about traveling, I am interested. I love to cook and eat too.

Music, Movies & Books

I listen to any kind of music. It depends on my mood. But usually it's the lyrics that I listen to, not much on the rhythm. It's a part of my life and I can't live without music. I read books about cooking since I love to cook.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

If there's one, it is traveling. I started traveling in 2010 and my first plane ride was to Florida, USA (approx 27 hrs). Since then I didn't stop, I try to travel at least once every quarter. I got my first passport on March 2010 and so far it got stamped from 10 different Countries (USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Malasyia, Singapore, Thailand, China, Vietnam, Indonesia). Every place is a dream come true. I didn't even think that I would be able to travel this much.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like meeting different kinds of people from different parts of the world. It makes my world big and small at the same time. We're all different yet the same. And I always try to learn and remember things from people I meet. I believe that every single person has his/her own experience to share and you can learn from it. I have a lot of respect with people's beliefs and perspective. I am also interested in all Languages.
