Who is Wentletrap?

I guess its only proper that you get to know a lil more about the writer of this silly bloggie... Click on to know more about me....

First of all, why wentletrap? I wrote a piece about what a wentletrap is, so at least you have an idea what it looks like... I chose wentletrap because aside from sounding different and classy, it was something that i think fitted me perfectly. Its unique form and shape appeals to me, it rarity and its value unsurpassed (until modern times). I have been collecting shells at on
e point in my life, i have 3 specimens, i think the national museum has 7 on display. I have been using that nick as an alternative to my legit account....and the rest is history as they say...

But who is wentletrap? Well, i go by JR (quite generic, huh) but im not a junior, im actually the third. My ancestry is Spanish and Chinese but i look more asian than anything else. Now with the advent of the asianovelas, people mistook me for a Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean! dang...

I'm 5'9+, 145, lean build, somehow i don't get fat (mental note thank parents for good genes). I love art and culture. I appreciate beautiful things, from the mundane objects to the monumental buildings, haute couture to bauble jewelry, nice yummy food presentation and pretty flowers.... the list goes on...

I love old stuff and new stuff. My interests in books and topics covers a wide range, fro
m antiques to travel to gems to paintings to politics to business to fish to dogs to food to anything else that i find interesting. I love collecting things. I dont stop till i exhaust my resources or until i find another thing to keep me occupied. Im driven.

I am an architec
t by course, a designer by profession. I design interiors, landscapes and the like. I do furniture. I also do physical set up for parties. I love fixing things. Im a perfectionist, a very keen eye on detail! nothing escapes my watchful eye. I love to work with my hands.

I love to travel. Its one of my passions. Unfortunately i havent been around the country much but i will soon. I studied and graduated abroad and came back here seven years ago. Travelling and living alone extensively have made me stronger, independent and liberal. I am open to new things and resilient in change. If life throws me a tomato, ill make a potato salad. How? I'll go to SM and buy some...save the tomato for a rainy day! hahaha....

They say im aloof but in reality im not, i am actually a people person. I hate crowds (youll never find me during a sale!), but good crowds are okay... what is a good crowd anyway...hahaha... actually i dont know =P haah...but really, i dont mind people, i just pretend i do but i dont....hehehe... people think im maarte ( a term highly associated with me), but im not, hahaha... ei i dont mind sleeping on the floor, and gosh, who would've thought i would trade Belvedere for a bottle of gin, a Ginebra at that! hahaha... it all boils down to good company.

JR is passionate about food. I love to cook, unfortunately Filipino cuisine is not one of my specialty, and im not really a big fan.... most of time! hehehe... i actually grew up eating the best Filipino cuisine so im soooo full of it! but i do get cravings. I am infatuated with chocolates. Dark yummy hard delectable chocolates! Not the ones from the grocery though, i love the real deal.... euro chocs are the best... i am happy when i eat chocolates. I wonder why there isnt a Godiva store here yet :(

JR loves animals! We use to have a pet monkey. We always have dogs, i actually have 12 shihtzus! At one point we had a hornbill and an owl (it died unfortunately last typhoon), a turtle, a hamster, and
lotsa fishes before... Flora is another interest, i love plants, flowers, ferns, bonsais! Nothing beats getting your hands dirty on a slow weekend and seeing your handiwork afterwards....its very rewarding and therapeutic. I love, love, love, white orchids!

Hmm... sounds too gay already? hehehe... i always say its being cultured. One more thing, JR is not really out
but good thing is that he doesnt have any qualms of being seen in public with gay people, after all, its all part of the biz... so he always has excuses.... I always say, its the world who is in denial not me...hehehe...

Always dressed to the nines. Yeah, thats true... dressing up is my therapy. I love clothes and fortunately they love me too... I am experimental but always tasteful (subjective). Some people say im always dressed up, even when going to the grocery...my response, why not dress up when doing your errands right? hmm.... but its funny i still get by and i do get by as still being straight, even if i have a ribbon around my neck with an antique cameo brooch on my belt?! Definitely, the world is in denial... hahaha...but its to my advantage so who am i to complain =P

(i have a habit of shifting from 3rd to 1st person so bear with it!) hehehe...

dang... this is longer than i expected...hehehe... hmm... i guess i have to save some for later... basically you get an idea who i am or do you? =P like i said, im just your not so ordinary guy living a not so extraordinary life....
