Emmanuel has a keen interest in travel and history. No wonder he is eager to learn to speak other languages besides Cebuano, Tagalog and English. Whenever Emmanuel visits new places, he always finds time to go to a museum, a church or any landmark of those places.
In his spare time, Emmanuel either watches documentaries or reads books about travel, history, and politics. He enjoys listening to both rock and classical music and is a sports and stand-up comedy fanatic.
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
