According to an rticle by Inquirer.net, driving a tricycle played a great part in his life.
“Napakalaking part ng buhay ko ng pagmo-motor,” said the actor.
He recounted how he struggled to pursue his studies.
“Nung college po ako, dahil alam naman ng lahat na di kami laking mayaman, talagang nung araw po ay nagsusumikap lang po kami sa buhay. Nung nagaaral po ako ng college nag-da-drive po ako ng tricyle para may pambaon po ako sa pag-aaral,” he added.

“Sobrang hilig ko po mag-motor,” he said. “Pag wala akong ginagawa or minsan gusto ko mag-relax kahit sa village namin nag-mo-motor lang ako mag-isa or nagpapahangin. Pag may time kasama ko yung mga kaibigan ko nag-mo-motor kami.”
