John Macasaet

Laguna, Philippines

Hello! I am John Macasaet, but everyone calls me Dingdong. I currently study at the University of the Philippines Diliman, taking up a degree in Computer Engineering. I am about 180 cm tall, and let's not talk about how much I weigh.

In 2011, I've started studying the Japanese language because I had a deep interest in the culuture, language and people of Japan. Although, I've only started formally studying the language in the summer of 2014.

I am interested in a lot of things like the Japanese language, German, Meterology, Mathematics (especially calculus and its applications), Linguistics, Electronics and Computers! (hence computer engineering).

I love playing baseball, but I can't play the sport as often as I'd want. I also like playing volleyball. During my free time, I usually study Japanese or just study for my subjects. Sometimes, I try to build apps for OS X and/or iOS. When I absolutely have nothing else to do, I watch アニメ I've never seen before, or rewatch a couple of them.

Now, I am a proud member of UP Volleyball Club and UP TOMO-KAI, where I serve as a publicity committee member for both organizations. I rarely play volleyball now, so most of my time is spent at TK where I get to embrace Filipino and Japanese culture (well mostly Japanese culture). I also get to interact with a lot of Japanese people studying in the university.

I dream to study in the University of Tokyo for my graduate studies, and I also plan to become a researcher in the field of engineering.

I would like to get to know you better! Please feel free to contact me, and hopefully I'll get a chance to know you as well.
