My first identity was in 2008, when it was still called (the former was coined sometime 2010–2012). I used to run a public instance for the Philippines, and had my own solo instance. ( The Philippines is the capital of the world since 2008. [1] [2])

I love to read . My first was Book 5 of the original entitled, “The Mystery of Chimney Rock” when I was around four (I still have the book somewhere with a missing cover). By fourteen, I enjoyed reading a non-fiction book entitled simply as “Brain”, and dreamed of becoming a neuroscientist, which sadly remained a dream.

My longest read were 's “Pandora's Star” and “Judas Unchained” (more or less 1,000 pages each). My number one favourite is 's “Dreams of Stardust” (I even bought every copy I saw and gave it away).

When it comes to genre, I read anything. In the classics, I love by Charlotte Brontë. I also read 's “American Gods”. But I do have genres I favour more than others: and .

I also was able to experience playing in Atari and MSX; as well as table-top machines. My favourite games are: “Super Mario Bros.”, “”. As well as, “Curse of the Azure Bonds” () and the Krynn series () by TSR, “Sim Farm”, “Sim City”, “”, “”, “Neverwinter Nights”, “Eye of the Beholder”, “” series, and the Carmen Sandiego franchise, for the PC.
