    The best clothing stores for me are…
    Uniqlo, Massimo Dutti. But anywhere in the mall, really, is okay.

    The kind of music that I listen to is…
    Indie rock. RnB. Pretty much everything except for country music. Right now, the kids’ music, mostly -- Frozen. (laughs)

    The best compliment that I’ve received is…
    That I’ve helped a lot of people.

    My best recipe is…
    I made a really nice guacamole once. I haven’t cooked in 10 years … 20 years, actually.

    My shortcut to feeling good about myself is…
    Music helps, food helps. Prayer helps, too.

    My favorite place for inspiration is…
    Anywhere. It’s more in the mind actually. No physical place [in particular].

    My most recent purchase was…
    I bought some artworks from Art in the Park last Sunday.

    I have a collection of…
    A small book collection on design and architecture, antiques and history. A few art pieces also. I used to collect movies, short plays just before I got married. Even old films. I have a lot of VHS tapes, unfortunately I haven’t transferred them yet.

    When I want to indulge, I ______...
    Eat chocolates, or chips. I prefer dark chocolate.

    The TV show I enjoy the most is…
    Entourage. Mostly sports, basketball . I like watching the NBA.

    When I became a dad, I had to give up...
    Late nights with the guys. I probably shouldn’t give details (laughs)

    You’re a Filipino parent if you…
    If you get together with your kids and your parents on Sundays.
