About Me

‼️ ATTENTION: Due to the current situation, I am always out of town, so I can’t accommodate a last-minute request unless I am in Davao City when you request. Please request in advance, maybe a week before your arrival. Also, I will most likely host those travelers that are FULLY VACCINATED. Thank you!‼️

1. Hungry 24/7
2. Wanderer 24/7

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There's a lot of amazing things I’ve done, but I will share two

(1) at 17, I had the opportunity to represent the Philippines for being an exchange student in the United States of America and got hosted in Chicago, Illinois. I must say, I lived the American dream.

(2) at 18, I started to think about what can I do to make a difference in my community and eventually planned my community project that benefited out-of-school children. After implementing the project, I gave a full scholarship to 15 children (their parents cannot support their education longer) to finish grade school.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you the basic Filipino (Tagalog) and Visayan (Bisaya) words and phrases that you can use during your stay here in the Philippines.

Co-learning with you, yes you! I’d love to learn about your culture, travel experiences, work, personal preferences, and choices in life. We can exchange our life and travel stories.

What I Can Share with Hosts

As your house guest, the first thing I want to share is about my country, the Philippines. I’ll buy some food, drink and even invite you to eat out because I want to try the food in every country I visit. I can clean and do household chores. I am a very flexible and organized person. I respect you and house rules. I always give a lil token/gift from my country

PS, As much as I want to cook Filipino cuisine, I can't because I don’t cook 🤭🤣

Countries I’ve Visited

Cambodia, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, United States, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

Philippines, United States
