Afternoon With David Poarch

People usually start their stories chronologically, they start from the beginning up till the end. That way, readers would usually get a clearer grasp on how the story really went. Stories become easier to understand. For some reason, I can't write this article on a chronological order. I might eventually later on but I will just rely on how my mind and fingers transcribe what happened earlier during the day.

Though he is not exactly a nobody, but David does not even consider himself a celebrity. It only makes sense to me. He did not come here to the country for fame and fortune. His was an adventure an independent spirit would love to hear. His was a journey a normal person would call "out-of-this-world"or "daring" and even worse, "crazy".

He (a Filipino-American) left the United States to search for himself here in his mom's homeland, leaving behind his job, school, security, and family. Armed with boxes and some $200 cash, his was an adventure that involved more than just backpacking, it was a journey searching for that one thing he still haven't found.

Throughout his pretty obscure persona (I can actually relate to him), I saw a man yearning for answers to questions he doesn't even know what they actually were. His life is a continuous search to whatever it was he was searching for.

He loves to laugh. He just throws out topics to conversations randomly. He knows what he wants. He hopes for the best. He questions his beliefs yet he hopes he is wrong. He doesn't want to be chained. He acts and does things according to what his feelings dictate him. He is an independent spirit indeed.

I hope we all get to read more about his life. He is indeed one inspiration.

Visit his blog.

one thing im impressed with dave is the way he speaks tagalog, so fluent and he would always prefer to talk in tagalog. another thing is his wit and desire to discover things. nice to know that you met the coconuter. and yes he likes coconut. hehehe...

@gas,
he came in for a visit. first time for me to see you coming in over here to comment! yey!

@atty,
actually yes, swerte nga. i hope people see what's behind the eurasian looks.

@dong,
mahilig din siya sa saging. hehehehe! kahapon, he was carrying at least 2 kilos of bananas. ang humble niya. gusto nga niya mag-tagalog. which is great. nakakahiya ang mga kagaya natin na americanized.
