I LOVE trying new foods, its one of the reasons i love to travel. I love to experience new cultures. Im considering being a cultural anthropologist...though my career choice is still up in the air :P
Im kinda quiet, and dont talk much :3 i dont like talking, so dont take it personally if I dont say much to you :) but I love photography and music. Though im mediocre at best on both those areas, i still love it.
Im Filipino by blood, American by heart :3
In my spare time i like to take pictures, write and sing songs on the piano, watch anime, read fantasy books, study different religions, learn new words in different languages, or play video games with my brothers :)
