I’m Carleon Mendoza. I’m a Filipino raised in the cosmopolitan Hong Kong; I bleed Pinoy, behave Chinese, think international – what a troublesome combination!

If open-mindedness were like a door, a large majority of people are slightly ajar – maybe even opening up more than halfway. I’m pretty much almost broken off the hinge.
