About Me


To do something I can be passionate about.


Pretty mellow. Epitome of the "happy kid". I love writing, music, films & traveling.

I enjoy listening to people's outlook on life and their take on the world. It's a fascination with diversity, culture & life experiences. Like National Geographic says, LIVE CURIOUS.

FYI: I support environmental causes, humanitarian action & animal rights. BUT I don't believe in forcing my beliefs/opinions on others. :)


I believe in activism, volunteerism & nation building. I think that for a society or a community to change and have progress, each individual has to do his/her part. :) DO SOMETHING!

Also this:
"If you are, you breathe. If you breathe, you talk. If you talk, you ask. If you ask, you think. If you think, you search. If you search, you experience. If you experience, you learn. If you, learn you grow. If you grow, you wish. If you wish, you find. And if you find, you doubt. If you doubt, you question. If you question, you understand and if you understand, you know. If you know, you want to know more. If you want to know more, you are alive."
