About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Wants to crash on your couch. No hobo. ... As well as to find worldly individuals around Cebu up for intellectual conversations over a glass of their beverage of choice. Mine is rum.

ABOUT ME

I'm not a serial killer. Trust me.

If you're in town, drop me a line if you want to hang out or if you want someone to show you around :)

PHILOSOPHY

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

We can dance until we die. You and I will be young forever.

Let's take a chance and don't ever look back.

Just remember, if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

Strangers have the best candy.

We cannot direct the winds but we can adjust the sails.

Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.

The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

The best of times is now.

Laughter is an instant vacation.

It's true that we don't know what we've got until it's gone. But it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

As we grow up,we learn that the one person who wasn't supposed to let us down,probably will. You'll have your heart broken,probably more than once,and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too,so remember how it felt when someone broke yours. You'll fight with your bestfriend,and maybe even fall in love with them. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast,and you'll eventually loose someone close to you. So take WAY too many pictures,laugh WAY too much,and love like you've never been hurt,because every 60 seconds you spend angry or upset, is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel—as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them—wherever you go.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, since I can't host, I'd like to participate by showing CSers around town instead, helping out in any way I can. Advice, tips, tricks, hints. What have you.

So don't be shy. Ask me out for a drink. :)

Interests

Food tripping. Sound tripping. Spontaneous activities are always the best. Especially surprises. I'm the most random person you'll ever meet. I contradict myself all the time.

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's discuss business. Art. Photography. Travel. Music. Movies. Technology. Language. History. Politics. Economics. Design. Advertising. Event Organizing. Architecture. Fashion. Current Events.

I'm up for learning anything from you.

I'm here to learn and experience other cultures.

Let's have worldly conversations.

I want to be fluent in French and Spanish.

As to sharing ... entrepreneurial advice probably.

My forte is PR and Marketing.

I'm a very people person.

I am very knowledgeable about technology and such. Especially about cellphones and internet and cellular networks and their rates in the Philippines. Promos and all. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, feel free to hit me up.

I can help you with learning Bisaya and English as well.
