About Me

I am Filipino, and I am working here in Japan. I lived in Amino in Kyotango City, Kyoto Prefecture, from 2018 to March 2023. Now, I live in Kamishinjo, Higashiyodogawa, Osaka City.

After living in the countryside for 4 years, I have started life in the city. I am very much excited to explore Osaka City and learn about the way of life here.

I am looking forward to eating the best Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki.

My area, Kamishinjo, is a good location. It is a 10-15 minute train ride from Osaka-Umeda. It is part of the Hankyu Line.

My apartment is a 2 minute walk from the north exit of Kamishinjo station. There are a lot of fast food restos, izakaya, konbini and supermarkets.

I live on the 4th floor, but it's pretty easy going up. And since I live near the station, we can hear the trains pass by from time to time.

Also, there is a public bath (onsen) near my apartment. It's actually just a minute walk.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to meet people and gain friends. I would also like to have people see my way of life.


I love listening to music, especially the ones from the 90s. I grew up listening to boybands and pop stars.

I also like watching movies on Netflix. Some of my favorite movies are Coach Carter, Freedom Writers, Mighty Ducks, The Notebook, White Chicks, and Coyote Ugly.

I love eating, so if you do, let's explore all the food hubs here in my area or simply explore my kitchen and create wonderful recipes.

I'm currently learning the art of massage therapy. I love getting massages, so I'm trying to learn how to give one. I wish to have my own spa in the future. I can give you a free massage if you like; it serves as practice for me.
