On the Lighter Side:

Larry is a reliable handyman at home and in the office. His no. 1 shopping place is the Hardware Store. He loves the outdoors and always looks forward to riding his motorcycles on weekends, holidays and on scheduled adventure trips around the Philippines and elsewhere in the world. He enjoys food, especially the local delicacies in the places he goes to, but his favorites are Lechon Cebu and steak. When he is not out riding or seeking for his next great adventure, he savors a different kind of thrill on his canvas and paints in oil and acrylic.
