What do you think is the best action film of all time?
Definitely The Matrix. The scene where they rescued Morpheus from the agents was really good.
If you can only bring one thing with you when you move to a different country, what will it be?
My laptop. Everything else is optional.
Which fictional character do you wish existed in real life?
Sherlock Holmes. He would be able to solve a lot of crimes.
Where’s the most relaxing place you’ve ever been to?
Turi Beach Resort in Batam, Indonesia. We had a really great view of the beach and pool. Plus, there were only a few guests around.
If you were to get cloned, what improvements would you want in your clone?
What movie never fails to make you laugh really hard?
White Chicks. Watching Terry Crews sing 'A Thousand Miles' just never gets old.
What's your most favorite configuration in your computer right now?
I have a Predator Helios 700. It has an i7 9th Gen processor with a 2070 graphics card. I love the sliding keyboard feature because it helps with the temperature of the laptop when I'm playing graphics-intensive games like "Red Dead Redemption 2" or "Ghost Recon: Wildlands" at ultra settings.
Who always knows how to make you smile?
My family. We goof around a lot, tell jokes, and frequently look for funny videos.
Who inspires you to stay motivated to reach your goals?
My wife, Judz. She just doesn't let adversity get her down. She's a glass-half-full type of person.
What’s something that you need a lot of help with?
Filing for any kind of paperwork. My handwriting is really bad and it takes me a really long time to fill them out.
Where do you go to enjoy some good comfort food?
I usually just grill some pork belly at home, then have a few drinks with my wife and some of our close friends.
Who’s the one person in your life who would keep your secrets no matter what?
Myself. In fact, I have a saying but I can't tell you. Kidding aside, it would be my buddy, Nate. Our social group is really small. We just keep to ourselves.
If your clothes can be only one color for a whole year, what color would you choose?
That's a tough question. If I have to choose, I'd say black.
What’s the worst hairstyle or haircut you’ve ever had?
My dad was away for some training so my mom accompanied me to the barbershop. Unfortunately, my usual barber was not there but I still pushed through with it. The barber asked what style I wanted. He mentioned several actors but I didn't know any of them. So I just chose someone randomly. What I didn't know was that the actor sported a shaved head. My classmates teased me about it for a whole week. Fast forward to college, I realized I really liked it.
Name one thing that you will never ever do again.
Can we change this to one thing I will never ever do? The one thing I'll never ever do is wear skinny jeans.
What question would you ask a time traveler from the year 2090?
What's the video game scene like? Is it anything like in the movie 'Ready Player One'?
What sport do you find the most exciting to watch?
Watching my kids playing volleyball is the best. They always take pride in how hard they practice every day and it gives them some sort of validation when they win.
If you could binge on something for a whole night, what would it be?
Ginabot dipped in vinegar and chili pepper. Ginabot is Cebu’s version of chicharon bulaklak. It is made from pig intestines which are dried and salted, then deep-fried in super hot oil until it flowers up.
Name a trend that you find annoying.
Wearing glasses just for fashion. Some people don't have any idea how tough it is not being able to see without your glasses.
What is the greatest thing about your family?
We decide as a unit. It can be as mundane as what we'll have for dinner, to a vacation destination or things related to finances.
