Kyle Jennerman has discovered and enjoyed the country and claims to have fallen in love with the Philippines and the Filipinos.
Also known as “Kulas”, Kyle is a 28-year old Canadian who has visited 29 enchanting countries in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific, but was totally smitten by our country’s special charm, that he has decided to stay here for good.
Kyle is the number 1 on the list of “Top 5 Foreign Bloggers Who Sincerely Love the Philippines and the Filipinos” and one of the “Top 5 of the World’s Best Male Travel Bloggers” according to Huffington Post.
More excitingly, we finally get to meet Kulas or Kyle during the press conference last August 6. He shared to us his experiences with full of praises for the Philippines - the beauty of the nature, the beaches, the environment, the food, the culture and the friendly, happy and “smiley” Filipinos he meet in his adventure.
Kyle is not a filipino by blood. He’s a Canadian. At first, Kyle’s mission is to become a Filipino. How and Why?
"I love Canada. I grew up in Canada. I am so freaking proud of where I am from. I love the Philippines and would be honored to be able to call myself “part Filipino.”
“Experiencing and seeing the beauty of the Philippines and witnessed its culture that has inspired so much happiness in my life! I think of the friendly people, culture and amazing adventure means 'Happiness" "Kaligayahan" "Kalipay."
Many people follow his journeys and visual storytelling, via social media through #BecomingFilipino.
“I have never experienced before what I got to experience in the Philippines. I have never met such kind, giving, friendly, hard-working, outgoing, proud and happy people. I have never experienced a culture like the Philippines; a culture that every single day inspires me, and that I look up to. It is a place where the natural environment is unbelievably beautiful. The waterfalls, beaches, mountains, rivers.... I could go on and on about it. But what really inspires me about the Philippines is the PEOPLE. If you are Filipino and you are reading this. Thank You. Thank you for being Filipino. Thank you for being part of a culture where family isn’t the only family, but friends and even strangers are family. Where smiling is genuine, giving is natural and sharing is a part of everyday life. A culture that goes through a lot of really tough times and suffering, but still shares a great big SMILE.”
