How did you find about the Philippines?

I was born here.

What Philippine locations have you visited?

A lot. Iíve been to the main island of Luzon and some parts of Visayas. Iíve been to the major destinations but Iíd love to visit the less travelled ones. There are lots of islands in the Philippines, and Iíd love to explore them all.

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


Naturally beautiful. I just hope that Filipinos preserve their natural treasure.


Filipinos have a sweet tooth. It might seem strange to others but is a mixture of the east and the west. Rice is the main staple.


Highly influenced by religion (Roman Catholic) and their colonizers. Itís a hodge podge of different cultures.


The most hospitable in the world!

What do you dislike about the Philippines?

The Filipino diaspora. While life may improve elsewhere, I hope people get the same opportunities in their own country.

What do you like about the Philippines?

Itís natural wonders!
