I consider myself as a cosmopolitan guy who is always curious on how other cultures works and enjoy having a conversation from any race and culture. I love the outdoors doing some hiking, camping and swimming in local beaches that are world reknowned. I love to shop too, but I make it a point to find the most affordable and yet high quality finds, you can expect me to haggle for prices and always find the best bargain! I love the taste of different cuisine, I have been tasted and love the flavors of Europe from Italian dishes to Mediterranean, the flavors of Americas from American cuisine Mexican cuisine, to the flavors of the East, like Indian dishes, Chinese dishes, Thai, Malaysian, Korean, Japanese and of course Filipino dishes. Night life? I don't usually dance but expect me to bring you in the best clubs here in Manila. Or maybe you just want to unwind and listen to relaxing music whether its Jazz or Bosa Nova, I know a place to go. You can expect me to protect you when you are here. I have classmate in high school who is a high ranking government official and a few relatives who are ranking police officers. Whether you are a first time tourist or a seasoned backpacker, I will assure that whatever food you eat and place you'll go will be beyond your expectation!"
