    The best clothing stores for me are…
    Topman, Zara, 21Men, sometimes Massimo Dutti, Marks & Spencer, Penguin.

    The kind of music I listen to is…
    Obviously, rock, but I’m also into all sorts of music. I’m not a musical snob so whether it’s pop or standards or reggae, if I like the song, I like it. Right now it’s Soundgarden’s "King Animals".

    The best compliment I’ve received is…
    That I don’t look my age. I’m 45.

    The best recipe I cook is…
    I don’t cook, I’m a professional eater but our maid makes a mean roast chicken. Also, anything that my daughter cooks; she’s into Culinary Arts, so she’s done a lot of experimenting at home. She makes great cupcakes, which I love.

    When I feel bad, I…
    I listen to music. I listen to what’s on my playlist. I go get myself a Starbucks Mocha Frappe and the world is a better place.

    My favorite place for inspiration is…
    It’s this place in our house where the kitchen meets the dining into a small bar. It’s about just below my chest so I put my iPad there when I’m inspired and that’s when I start to write stuff or maybe learn a song for a show. That’s my little nook.

    My most recent purchase was…
    My skateboard. I skateboard with my son for leisure. It’s something I’ve never done in my youth so I’m kinda going back to it with him. I’m also into biking, with my wife.

    I’d like to start / I already have a ______ collection.
    I already have a Mecha toy collection: Voltes V, Daimos, those kinds of things. Action figures.

    When I want to indulge I...
    I’d ask the entire family to go with me to a Japanese restaurant, like Shinjuku in Makati Avenue. That’s my favorite Japanese restaurant.

    The T.V. show I enjoy the most is…
    Ancient Aliens on History Channel.

    When I became a Dad, I had to give up...
    I had to give up thinking of myself all the time. It’s a paradigm shift, really. It’s more of thinking about the kids, their future.

    You’re a Filipino parent if you...
    If you tell your kids to finish the food on their plate.
