How did you find about the Philippines?
I was born here. This is my native land. Philippines, my Philippines.
What Philippine locations have you visited?
The farthest I have gone north is Tuguegarao, Cagayan and in the South Calapan, Oriental Mindoro.
What are your opinions on the following things about the Philippines?
There are a lot of beautiful spots here in this country. This is the primary reason why foreigners love to come here.
Every particular place here has its signature food. In the north, of which I am from, we boast of our Kilawin, Dinakdakan, Pansit Luglug, and many other local delicacies.
Our culture is very rich. The presence of various festivals attest to this. It is also interesting to note that those who have colonized us have influenced our culture.
Filipinos are known for their hospitality. This is why a lot of countries desire the services of Filipinos in the care-giving business worldwide.
What do you dislike about the Philippines?
Politics, politics, politics…
What do you like about the Philippines?
Every aspect of this country except for dirty politics, stagnant economy, pollution, poverty, and dichotomy between the rich and the poor, showbiz, etc. etc. Moreover, I want to emphasize how we value family structure, our religion, and our country.
Your favorite place/s in the Philippines.
In my place in the province (PILAR, ABRA) I do not have to wander far to see beautiful sceneries. A 2-hour trek would lead me to Pinsal Falls located in the boundary of Abra and Ilocus Sur, the Sagsagacat Springs in Penarubia (which I last visited when I was still a Boy Scout), Burikibuk Springs in Bucay, and the underground river in Manabo are just few of the beautiful god-given spots which are located in my beautiful and interesting province.
