I have never met someone that was so driven by her passions. Someone who understood that even in front of adversity, we are the change that we want to see in the world. A staunch champion for thousands of voiceless communities and an infallible protector of the environment. Mother Nature personified, Gina leaves behind a legacy that we should all be inspired by, urging us to become better and help out, in whatever little ways we can, to improve the lives of everyone in our country. I spent just 4 days with her in Tawi Tawi and in that small amount of time, we had already spoken about grand plans, to a point where I was left confused by where to start. She woke up earlier than everyone else and met with community leaders, later than the rest of us. She taught us that it's all about moving forward, knowing that the race will never truly end, content with the impact we leave along the way. Like rays of sunshine, your energy will continue to stir our souls, even on the cloudiest days.
Fastest trip to Tokyo in my life. Just over 24 hours for a shoot. August here is really hot and humid, but that also means it's Uni season!
Thank you to everyone who came to our #SmartPlay talk and listened to my brain vomit on content creation. Hope everyone can take home something to think about from it!
#worldelephantday we all have this fantasy of getting up close and personal with wildlife, but remember that these animals are not meant to be tourist rides. Don't go to places that make them do tricks or allow you to ride them. Make sure that if you do go visit them, it's with groups or foundations that tend to them for conservation efforts, anti-poaching, rescue and/or rehabilitation purposes.
The next two months are going to be intense! Full of mountains, surf, free diving and eating. Some exciting new series' are coming up for you guys!
Giving a talk about how to find the type of content you want to create online, all the different formats, the opportunities and how to make something that authentically represents you! I will be with Alodia, Wil, David, and Carlo at the #SmartPlay: #VloggerCamp 2019! The first leg is happening next week, August 14th at Davao City!

Stereotypical Broome picture but still so beautiful.. #GoProCreatorSummit #GoPro Taken on the Hero 7!
Last day on the Broome coast with these legends. We were all supposed to go Mud Crabbing but ended up just talking on the beach. Can't wait to come back and explore the Kimberley and the rest of Western Australia. If you want a glimpse of life around these areas, make sure you follow @brodiemoss and @kimberleyspirit #gopro #GoProCreatorSummit #justanotherdayinwa

Confused by the fact that i'm about to take three planes and ride them for 24 hours, just to land in the same timezone as the Philippines. Heading to the #GoProCreatorSummit in Broome, Western Australia. Excited to meet the rest of the international GoPro fam. #GoPro #SeeAustralia #justanotherdayinwa
Nasi Campur madness. Char siu pork, roast chicken, pork belly, sausages and chicken gravy. All suffocating a mound of white rice. There is a little green vegetable on the top right. I'm pretty sure it's just a green chili. We are putting the finishing touches to our second episode of Overnight Shorts Jakarta. Out this weekend! Check out the first video, if you haven't yet.
Travelling and running a business in Manila can be stressful at times. It's important to have a bank that has your back and allows you to manage your finances online. Security Bank will make it work for you. If you're going to Jakarta overnight. We have the video for you! It just went up on youtube and we show you where to get good street eats in one area.

Wishing I was back on the water. 📸 GoPro Fusion #GoPro #goprofusion
Putting up a new video today about all my favorite healthy breakfast recipes!
How do you Bakmi?
All the Sambals have stolen my heart.
Caving for this fried chicken made by @redjeki.kuliner last week in Jakarta. The chicken is first cooked in spices, before being lightly fried. The spices are then refried to become the perfect crunchy topping for the dish. All served with a red hot fresh sambal. Ayam Penyet.
Is it possible to overdo a Nasi Padang feast?
Peace out Jakarta. Team's all packed up. Overnight Shorts coming your way soon. #thefatkidinsideproductions
Calorie bomb. Sweet chocolate and peanut Martabak. 👌
Fell in love with this Nasi Gudeg. A sweet savory dish with young jackfruit, grilled chicken, braised oxtail and tofu. All smothered in addictive kecap Manis.
I could possibly eat this Indonesian soup, Soto, filled to the brim with vegetables and meat, everyday. What's your favorite local dish in Jakarta?
Getting my Lumpiang Shanghai fix.
Bibingkoy is a Caviteno classic. Here, patties of Palitaw, filled with sweet red mongo paste, cooked similarly to a bibingka, is served with a sweet gravy like coconut milk, flavored with pandan and mixed with bits and pieces of fruits and camote. Make sure to watch the best eats in Cavite video!
How to coil the perfect ensaymada. The bakers at Baloy's bakeshop have perfect the art in Cavite. Beats eats in Cavite video dropping in a couple of minutes! You need to day trip out there.
Wishing I was back in nature with this one. Vacations can be costly, but possible when you use @securitybank Loans to grow your business or build a house, unlocking potential revenue or freeing up cash. Go to their website for more information. #BetterBanking #BetterLoans #ad
Have you tried the Caviteno Bacalao yet? We did at Cantina de Tita A, where they use salted labahita instead of cod. It's delicious! We are dropping our best eats in Cavite video tomorrow!
You know it's going to be a good time when Filipino bartenders get together to make drinks. Thank you so much @mo_singapore for having us, great property and amazing bar! Thank you to all the industry folks and to the Filipino community who came down for a drink. 📸 @remzphotography
Lost at sea, caught in the current
Make sure to check out the Paseo de Roxas underpass in makati and look up to see the work of AG Saño. A muralist known for creating work that aims to remind and inspire people to take care of Mother Nature. Follow him here @whaleboy2000 it took him and his group, 17 nights to accomplish! Painting more than 45 endemic species in the Philippines, some in danger of becoming extinct. So happy that @securitybank teamed up with him, to get this mural up in Makati. Hopefully it inspires people to help nurture a better world for everyone. #BetterBankingForABetterWorld #SBCGreenAndBlue
From the depths of the sea to the cloud draped mountains. Our quick 48 hour itinerary to climb Mt. Pulag, from Manila, is now up on youtube. ⛰️🌊☁️
Beautiful Caviteno tamales for breakfast. Love the heat of the pepper in the peanut paste.
It took us a while but we got there in the end! Our Apo Reef Free Diving episode is now up on youtube. Such an amazing experience. I'm completely hooked on this sport now and I hope everyone gets to experience this beautiful reef at one point in their life. Link in bio.
Love our country, protect our resources, educate and spread awareness.
Building our own studio for The Fat Kid Inside Productions, was something I always planned to do, but never really got around to doing. We created Hectare One about one year and half ago now and things will never be the same. It was a necessary investment and has made all the difference to growing towards the type of series that we want to create. We have some exciting ideas for the next two years, so stick with us! If you want to build your business and don't know where to start, I recommend going to @securitybank and asking about their Business Express Loan.
I'm a glutton for punishment. Solenn and I will be shooting episode 3 of the Sibling Bake Off this Saturday. We need dish suggestions! Something that can be made in an hour. Comment below!
Just putting the final touches on our Apo Reef video. Should be out this week!
Have you ever made pandesal at home? I hadn't before making this video. It's actually not as complicated as you might think. Unfortunately, it is quite time consuming (more waiting than doing). I switched out thr all purpose flour, for a denser bread flour, to get a product that has more bite to it. Video dropping, later this afternoon.
Sometimes, you don't need to understand, you just need to admire.
