To LIVE a life. What a better way of living life than seeing the materiality and substance of the world from stories of cool amazing stewards of the planet and contributing my share in stewardship. (Simply put, I just want to go places, eat ouishi food and sultry drinks and bike! Haha)
Im a person who is continually seeking to live life to the fullest;despite the odds; meet people of all races and places and, hopefully, interconnect cultures. I like adventure and fun; finding fun at trying times is a learning adventure; once in a while, a bystander who sometimes just sit on a nook and watch the sun set. Life is surely a gift, but it is also a privilege. You have to earn and live it. : )
Live live to the fullest. Life is a matter of choices, right choices, that is, but sometimes, wrong choices too if it means learning the hard way. But that makes life sweeter.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I lost count of how many times I hosted but I only have three surfing experiences and they were all fun, exciting and learning.
cooking, good food, music, beer, wine, rhum, brandy, whisky, (did i say absinthe?), travel, movies, self improvement books, politics, economics, business, law, correspindence, photography, health, gym,, sports, yoga, massage, beach, animei!, sashimi, koreantelenovelas, chichiria, chocolates, cheeses, (to be continued haha)
Music, Movies, and Books
alternative, pop, accoustic, reggae, R&B, jazz, bozzanova, maybe all types : )
adventure, sci-fi, mistery thriller, horror, love, war, feel-good, comedy & satire.
books of Paulo Cuelho, "think and grow rich", "five people you meet in heaven", "tuesdays with morrie" "OtherWise" "to kill a Mocking Bird" , "Identity" and "the book of laughter and forgetting" by Milan Kundera, "In The Country of Men" by Hisham Matar.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the most amazing thing that Ive seen is the "Banaue Rice Terraces". They are mountain ranges whose slopes have been curved by bare hands of people and turned them into rice paddies. AMAZING!
I have reached the highest peak in the Philippines; Mt. Apo in Mindanao.
Swam with the whalesharks.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to cook my favorite Filipino dishes; speak Filipino; where to go to and what to do; how to go places in Manila safely; and how to eat exotic food.
I wish to learn your culture, language (cursing words haha) how to cook one or two dishes of you place, your stories and thoughts on what interests you.
I would gladly share my culture, my home and my stories and thoughts with laughters and drinks, balot and videoke (with emphasis on the last three ;)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I shall gladly share the culture of the Philippines (by word of mouth, that is); but I can be prodded easily to cook Filipino dish for my host; material as well funny and even meaningless conversations; and a free legal consultation ;)
