How did you find about the Philippines?

Born in the Philippines and proud to be a Filipino.

What Philippine locations have you visited?

I have been to most places in the Philippines from Batanes to Zamboanga. I’m looking forward to see Jolo and Tawi-tawi.

What are your opinions on the following things about the Philippines?

     Places

Exciting. Every province, every city and every barangay offers something different. Every one offers a different way of doing things—a testament to Filipino creativity. Just like, for example, the design of tricycles. Each barangay has its own design and color preferences.

     Food

Has its share of uniqueness. The kare-kare or adobo of one province has something different from the kare-kare and adobo of another province, although basically the same food. And one has to try the different versions to appreciate the different palate interpretation of another province.

     Culture

Varied and always pleasantly surprising.

     People

Warm and hospitable.

What do you dislike about the Philippines?

Too much politics and corruption.

What do you like about the Philippines?

Creative people, fun loving, music lovers.
