1. Where did you grow up, and what made that place special?
I grew up in a private subdivision in Sucat, right beside Laguna de Bay. Like all subdivisions in the south, we were far from civilization then. The place was special since the community was tightly-knit where everyone knew each other and the breeze from the lake, especially in the cold months, was very refreshing.

2. What was your favorite tv show, cartoon, or children's show growing up? What did you like about these shows that made them your favorite?
I watched the non-stop cartoons on Saturday mornings (Voltes V, He-Man, G.I. Joe, Thundercats, Smurfs, Astroboy, Transformers, Macross, etc.), all those dubbed Japanese series every afternoon (Shaider, Bio-man, etc.), as well as Ghost Busters every Friday night. There was Batibot too. But I remember Sesame Street the most. I guess it was the children's show which made the biggest impact on the 80s generation.

3. Favorite music group or artist? Most memorable song?
I think I have tapes of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice. But I was not that into music.

4. Share with our readers one of your fondest memories of growing up.
Weekends with my family at Quad; playing patintero, luksong baka, and tumbang preso in the street or syato and agawan "base" in school; picking aratilis fruits as we walked around the village; getting addicted to Atari and Family Computer, and so much more.

5. What do you miss from back then that's not available today?
Car rides from Sucat to the Ateneo via EDSA without flyovers in just 45 minutes. I also miss Horlicks! That's why I make sure to buy some when I'm in Singapore and Malaysia.
