Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I learned about couchsurfing in various blogs I follow, but I never really understood how they do it. Although it's only now that I'm taking part on CS, I'm excited to share cultures, languages and experiences with various people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Coldplay always does it for me, any day, everyday. I'm a fan of Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, John Mayer and Incubus. I also listen to local Filipino acts like Up Dharma Down and Urbandub.

I've watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind a thousand times. Same with (500) Days of Summer. My bestfriend introduced me to movies like Cinema Paradiso and City of God, and I loved them. I'm always up for anything World War II, but admittedly, I'm a chick flick junkie.

Before I was a couchsurfer, I've always been a couch potato. I can watch US TV series for hours and hours. My perennial favorites are Gilmore Girls, Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family. Recently, I am into Scandal and House of Cards.

Oh, I also watch K-dramas. Watching Korean variety shows (with English subtitles) on the KBS World TV on YouTube is my guilty pleasure.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Making someone laugh -- yeah that's about it. LOL
But seeing someone laugh heartily is pretty amazing.

I consider getting my mom's seal of approval in my cooking amazing as well. Hehehe

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm open to learn anything! I like knowing about the cultural significance of places in history, and their relevance in pop culture. I love tasting new food, although I'm not very good at handling spicy foods.

I'm willing to share my knowledge in English and Tagalog languages, cooking, Filipino culture, chemistry (LOL), etc. Please just ask me :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook for you~ Let's see if I can impress you with my food, haha.

We can also chill at night, or go partying if that's your thing.
