1. Where did you grow up, and what made that place special?
I was born in Baguio City and lived there for ten years. What I remember most about the place was the constant rain and waking up from underneath comfortably thick sheets only to be told the joyful news that classes had been cancelled yet again.

Seriously, I loved every inch of Baguio . I couldn’t explain how my days there were both downcast and cheery, how it was both cold and warm and how I was both deeply joyful and melancholic. The place brought out great depth of thought and feeling in me at such an early age.

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 loved He-Man, Shera, G.I. Joe, Transformers, McGyver, A-Team, Star Trek, Mission Impossible and many others. I suppose it just felt great watching stories that revolved around good guys winning and not around today’s regular T.V. fare— sex, drama and violence.

3. Favorite music group or artist? Most memorable song?
I seem to remember liking John Denver. One of my all time favorites was his version of "Puff the Magic Dragon." For the last time, the song isn’t about smoking weed!

4. Share with our readers one of your fondest memories of growing up.
My fondest memory was taking off every non-rainy day into the hills and woods beyond the stream that ran behind our house. There is simply nothing like immersing yourself in the breathtaking bosom of nature. My parents probably saved a fortune on toys. I liked my natural playground better than sitting at tea with Barbie.

5. What do you miss from back then that's not available today?
I miss the absence of malls. I miss pure unadulterated nature that was once just within a stone's throw away from me.
