Good Evening from the Philippines!

Hi Everyone,

I'm Chris Rice, an American expat living in the Philippines, with my wife @emaferice, and our 10 month old son @zaclucasrice. I am 33 years old now, and at a point in my life where I want to contribute.

I want to contribute to myself, my family, society and the environment, all at the same time. And I want to do it in a way that harnesses my strengths, passions and conscience.

It does get difficult at times, since I take medication that slows me down, and I require 12 hours of sleep every night, but I spend a lot of time reflecting and meditating on doing good things i.e. thinking about being a good father, husband and productive citizen of the world.

I am good at creating & discussing ideas, but I am somewhat poor at performing practical tasks. I like speaking to others, and I also like listening, especially when it is to someone that is important to me (i.e. @emaferice).

Hopefully I'll be able to contribute to the Steemit community. It would be great to meet new people who also want to contribute, and maybe some people who have a hard time contributing too.

Thank you for being a part of Steemit!


Hello welcome to steemit!! it's really nice to have you here enjoy the platform and explore the community.....wish you all the best.

Thank you so much Chris Rice for introducing me to the Steemit community here in the Philippines. I am a beginner and wanted to learn more about cryptocurrency and the world economy as a whole. I will forever be grateful for the things you shared to me, even if we haven't met yet in person.


I just joined Steemit as well. It seems like an interesting new community. Look forward to seeing your pics of the Philippines.

Yeah. I really like the idea of a social network that pays it's members. I think it will catch on in other areas of the Internet and become a big thing. So happy to see Steemit pave the way!

Hi Chris! Welcome to steemit. Your post is awesome! You have a very nice family! Here's my upvote!

Nice! I wasn't sure if anyone from the Philippines was on Steemit.

Your comment will inspire my wife since she also joined. I didn't include a picture of her in my post since I want to save that for her introduction. Thanks for appreciating our family!

P.S. That's baby Zac with me in the photo and he's clapping his hands :) :)

I just recently discovered that there are actually a lot of Filipinos here!

That's awesome, let me know when your wife sets her blog up, would definitely want to read her posts too!


That's really nice. I think Steemit is such a good project, especially for Filipinos.

P.S. I shared my wife's username on one of your other posts. It's @emaferice I'm happy to meet nice people here!

Thanks @Cheneats

I registered for an account on Discord through one of those links. If there is a chat room someone might be able to help me include links inside my Steemit posts. I don't know how yet but I will look it up. I also want to embed YouTube videos someday.
