i was born and raised in the backwaters of sampaloc, manila. manila is my home because of family and initial circles of friends and acquaintances. my parents worked very hard to provide me with opportunities on which i can pursue many of my goals and dreams. i am eternally grateful to them for taking care of me and my siblings.

diliman, dumaguete, polomolok (south cotabato), tokyo, cambridge and canberra have become my homes too. there are replications of mom and dad, friends and siblings in these places.

home inspires me to do my best in spite of my severe limitations. there is always something outstanding about life because there are homes for people to fit in.

Hello sir. I just happen to run into your blog while reading someone else's. Your picture of Mt. Matutum makes me want to go back home to South Cotabato. Anyway, I hope your doing well there. :D
