One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- To risk my life by taking a small ferry in the weekend that typhoon Ondoy hit the Philippines. I swear I have never been so afraid as in that boat. ..hehe.

- Watching the stars in the middle of the Australian outback.

- My first trip to El nido palawan. Living off the sea and drinking tanduay on deserted beaches with the glowing plankton.
