About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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 food and sultry drinks and bike!)

ABOUT ME

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. : )

PHILOSOPHY

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.

Swam with the whalesharks.

Survived 2 months solo backpacking in Europe

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, how to cook one or two dishes of you place, your stories and thoughts on what is important to you and what makes you 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 ;)
