Late na ako nagstart sa seafaring career ko – dahil marami akong pinagdaanan bago pa man ako nag-umpisa.
Kahit simple lang ang buhay dito kumpara sa international assignments, ramdam mo talagang parte ka ng isang pamilyang lumalaki bawat taon.
I’m the younger brother of Jinple Allen, who is graduating today. We’re brothers, but we couldn’t be more different. He’s stiff, serious and professional. Me? I’m his fun, jolly, crazy brother from Gen San.
My dream wasn’t to be a seaman – it was to become a great athlete. Sports was my life. Basketball, volleyball, badminton, you name it. I had big dreams then.
Dahil sa huli, ano pa mang bansa galing yan, anong kulay o anyo, seaman rin yan. Kapatid mo yan.
Inalagaan kami ng mabuti ni Itay. Kaya gusto ko rin maging mabuting seaman – para pag-graduate, ako naman ang taya.
