About Me

I am proud to be a Catholic because I can pray the Rosary whenever I feel like it. I work from home and help in the family business. After work, I usually go to the gym because fitness is an important part of my life.

My mother encouraged me to swim, and eventually my childhood asthma disappeared. Since then, swimming has been my favorite sport. Also, I enjoy being in nature, playing tennis and chess.

When visiting a country, it’s the few good friends that you have in that country that matters. Sighting is only secondary.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Having cultural exchanges and meeting new people may lead to lifelong friendships, so why not go on an adventure and find out.

Teach, Learn, Share

My first experience with my guardian angel was in Japan back in 2008.

It was a drizzly afternoon, and the ground was wet. Therefore, I knew I had to watch my step. My father's friend Akira and I were at the mountain shrine about to descend a stairway, and each stairstep is about two feet wide. While we were walking down the stairway, I slipped and thought I was going to die.

Then my invincible companion held me and made me land safely without injury. I could've fallen head first or on my back, but I landed on my butt on the same step on which I had slipped. This experience is my testimony that the Lord has been watching over me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can bring you a delicious treat from my country, teach you how to swim, and how to speak some Tagalog.
