Hello Steemworld! It's time for me to say Hello :)

Alltough this is not my first post on steem I thought it would be nice if people from our #steemprivate community get to know me a little better. I hope this post will find you well!

I am half from the philippines and half from switzerland but I grew up in switzerland, basel. My zodiac is "libra" and I really do feel like one ;)




I initially studied economics but somehow never ended up working there. I was too passionate about organizing my own events in the clubbingscene of europe (electronic dance music). Since I was a hobby DJ, it fit very well also doing business in this area. In fact I ran 2 different night clubs specialized for techno music. I also founded my own company, a booking agency. This way it was easier to book DJ’s all over the world into our clubs. It was an amazing experience to meet all those nice music artists i was always dreaming of hearing live one day…and now, we are actually good friends! I was always into techno music and psytrance and we were nailing it regarding the best partys in our city!



Me chilling at windbeach in kho tao, thailand :)

But with all that fame and money came a big downside aswell…a classic burnout!

…I really got tired of this kind of lifestyle. My inner clock was F***d up… I had serious sleeping problems (party 3 days every week without sleep). Work all weekend. Get wasted and live a careless life. Get to know so many people but nobody for real. Have so many friends but none you can count on. Be surrounded by so many people but still feel lonely….

I decided to change all of that so I quit all !! I even left my own company…cashed out and the first thing I did was travel for several months. This was where I just started to smell the fresh air of freedom .


I feel a lot more alive and healthier. So many things have changed in my life. It was hard to accept my new life at first but now it feels like a relieve. I dont rly go out at night anymore since i kind of have a overdose of clubbing. I do a lot for myself, whereas before i did everything for others (customer is king) . This is also how i started blogging on the Steemit plattform…I started with crypto and then fell in love with steem ;)

Currently i am working in switzerland to save for my next travel. I really love to dive. Diving is expensive, it costs me like twice as much as my trip itself but i really try to go whenever i can. It is the best way for me to turn off everything arround me and just enjoy the moment. Especially if im surrouned by nice sharks. I also started growing some mushrooms as a sideproject and in my freetime i go hiking with friends anywhere in switzerland.







I think life is to short to just live it one way! Even tough i never had a 8 to 5 job i am done working so much until I feel burned out. I feel like I am growing up and beeing more reasonable now. I am very lucky to be born in switzerland. I live a very wealthy life and always got everything i wanted so far. But it takes a lot more than just materialistic things to make one happy which is why i started downsizing my life. And I realised that it actually makes me happier than ever before. I can feel the day coming closer where I will take the step to a complete other life. I want to leave my homecountry to explore a new home, the philippines (my second home)!

Still I am a very ambitious person and want to achieve a few things in my life ;) Therefore I am still here in switzerland, saving for one of my biggest dreams. I am dreaming of owning my own house/resort in the philippines one day. I have been there already several times, also to look for some sweet spots for sale. I want to build my own „holiday“ resort that i can also rent out while I‘m not there. I want to help the locals there and try to build up a comunity together with them, im sure steem will help me on the way.

And more than anything else I want to just live a simpler life!!! I am lucky that I can always come back to switzerland whenever i want and I would feel stupid if I wouldnt take this opportunity to leave it for now.

Don't forget to live the sunny side of life ;)


Im looking forward to meet a lot of likeminded travellers all over the world here on steemit and discuss with them whatever there is to discuss!

Cool, @minatubo welcome to Steemit!
By the way, I have also been to Koh Tao, which is where I actually got my PADI scuba diving license. I fell in love with Thailand too and I am just about to move there for good! ^_^

Nice gif you got there ;) I got my PADI in kho tao also.. Let me know when you go there, maybe we can meet up! Im in thailand like 1 a year cause my father lives there.

Sure, why not! Cheers from Shanghai!🍺

I fell in love with the Philippines and moved there - got PADI certified in Manila as well. Thailand has some nice diving spots

Welcome to Steemit, minatubo!


It sounds like you had in interesting life AND and even better life ahead. It would be interesting if you would share your guesthouse / resort building story on Steemit. We try to make it to the opening party!!!!

Thanks, indeed it was, is and even will be a lot more interesting now that i feel i am actually living it :)
For sure i will be posting this, i will make a huge steem meetup warmup party, ya all welcome ;)

For me, it was pretty much the other way around.
I got into steem first, then got into crypto.
Its great to know your journey so far.
From DJing to Diving to Traveling, your life has been anything , but not monotonous.
Hope, you achieve your dreams to open the resort in in the Philippines's.
Excited to follow your Journey :)

That is cool

Thank you for your kind words!! It's great to find likeminded people on steem! Let's keep in touch ;)

Same here, crypto then steem. Let me know once you have your own resort here ^_^

I will for sure! I will host a steemevent once i got my own roof over my head in the phils ^^ Hopefully by then everybody is using steem ;)

I'm pretty sure steem will be a household name here very soon. Best of luck with your plans! ^_^

I agree with you

All the Best!!!

This was a very interesting post about your life and journey so far. In your past you managed to gain a lot of experience and learn from it. There are still many people living that lifestyle and they too will probably wake up and realise there is more to life than partying 24/7. Don't get us wrong, we love to party from time to time, but we grew out of the clubbing life quite fast.
It is amazing to see how you're changing as a person and where you eventually what to end up. The future looks bright (maybe not now in the markets), but just keep doing what you're doing and you'll get there. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Keep chasing that dream! The resort in the Phillipines with daily of dives! :D

Thank you so much for your motivating words :) For sure i will keep chasing my dreams :D I think the future is what one makes out of it so it is just sad to waste it in a party!

I hope one day i will be able to make a great blog like yours about madagaskar :) Until then i will keep looking whats up with you two travellers and you never know, maybe i can be happy to invite you one day in my dream resort in the philippines! haha

You're welcome @minatubo and any time ;)

At least you made something out of your party lifestyle, so it's not all gone to waste. Two different clubs to manage and run is not an easy feat.

You will only get better with practise and guidance on this platform. Have a feel for what suits you. Your style of writing and what you want to talk or share about. We are more than happy if you want to take pointers from us.

We will take that invite as we love being by the beach and Becca loves diving! :) We'll keep it in mind.

"Be surrounded by so many people but still feel lonely…."<-- That really is the worst feeling ever! I love your journey... So fascinating! All except the mushrooms... I'm allergic to them! Haha. Have you been driving with sharks in there Philippines?

One of your big dreams is the same as mine! Actually my friend is building a resort in the Philippines right now and I think I'm going to stay there next year.

But I can't decide is I'd want a place there or on central America.

I help run a non profit in the Philippines with a couple of people so it would make sense there.

Thank you, i am very happy that our paths at least in the digital world have already crossed. Let's see, maybe one day even for real ;) Yes, i have been diving with tresher sharks in malapascua, I posted a blog about it here on steem, feel free to check it out. There is also a video i made of them, i will never forget that :)

Let me know about your non profit in the philippines!!! I am interested, maybe i can help too :)

Nice to get to know you more @minatubo - is your name also from the volcano Mt. Pinatubo? Sounds like it :)

Thanks for sharing about your life and congratulations on that decision. It's also good that you were able to enjoy that phase of your life and you have taken a big step to change it. I wish you the best in your goals. I hope to see your dream resort here in the Philippines! :)
