“Biking is always a time travel to my childhood years back in Manila. Whenever I pedal, the whole world transforms to pure innocence and joy. It serves as my escape from the realities of the present. I also enjoy writing, listening to music, reading, blogging, walking and trying outdoor things. I love any activity that can make me forget the inevitability of passing time and the stress that comes along with it.”

“It was my father who introduced me to his hobby, biking. Biking is not only a form of exercise for me, but also a transportation that is low-cost and would not contribute to the air pollution. I also love this because it gives me a feeling of freedom every time fresh air and cool wind brushes against my skin when riding a bike. Aside from biking, I also love dancing; playing sports like football, volleyball and scrabble; and pushing my advocacy regarding poverty, environment and Christian faith actively.”
