Most Memorable Travel Experience
* My 6-week trip (Jan 2012) in Europe (Spain, Italy, France, Netherlands, Czech Rep, Germany, Portugal)

* My 1-month trip (Feb 2012) in US.

* One week in remote areas of Cambodia.

* Dec FMP / 2011 NYE @ Koh Phangan with drunkaholics. Awesome group at Sandy Bungalow :)

* June 2010 FMP and 2010 NYE / Full Moon Party @ Koh Phangan!!! 6 days @ Koh Phangan with fellow travbuddies from this site. Had a blast!!! I love you peeps! 'til our next escapade! wooooohooo! :)

* 3 days in Koh Samui before the Mayhem in KP. cheap buckets in a dodgy place!

* Dec 24, 2009 XMAS Alcoholiday Meetup @ Bangkok with more or less 30 Travbuddies! It was hell of a fun especially after midnight hehehe! hic hic.

* 15 days in Vietnam (HCMC, Danang, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi, and Halong Bay). Very interesting country. I will defo go back to visit Sapa.

* My 8-day Cambodia solo trip : 3 days in amazing Siem Reap, 3 days in chaotic Phnom Penh, and 2 days in Sihanoukville.

* Patong beach in Phuket, Thailand. Have met many wonderful people along my trips including two TBers (Mark and Carla)

* Busted on our way to Grand Canyon. Didn't realize I was already driving 93MPH. Got pulled over by police patrol and was given a ticket and paid $200 huhuhu.

* Did some water tubing @ Salt Lake River, Arizona with friends even though most of us don't know how to swim including myself hehe.

* Visited Las Vegas with close friends. Now I know why it was called "Sin City" hehe.

* Disneyland and Universal Studio trips with friends. Not really my childhood dream though... I was just dragged by my friends to join them. But I had fun!

* Misadventures in Bangkok and Ayuthaya, Thailand with berks! I enjoyed the temples and the chaos but not the traffic.

* Visited Taman Negara (National Park) during my 1st yr here in Malaysia. Nice place to visit if you like nature tripping. The rainforest is even bigger than Singapore.
Like everyone else here on this site, I enjoy travelling and meeting new people more and more these days. My fascination all started during my 6 month onshore stint in Scottsdale, Arizona. I had the opportunity to see places, to experience different cultures, and to meet many people across the globe.

I joined this site to get travel tips, to read reviews, and to know everyone’s experiences as I was to travel alone. But I received gracious welcome from friendly people and gained TB friends as the days go by. Little did I realize, I am already hooked-up on this addictive site hehe.

About myself, I am just a typical guy living in a simple life. I am 100% full-blooded, natural-born Filipino citizen. I stand 6’5 (I have to tell this so u easily spot me in the crowd hehe). But as I always say: I am not tall, you’re just too small! ;)
