I can't remember things... I have been a self starter. But when I was a preschooler, my father used to take me to his fishing hobby and he taught me how to fish and we were fishing, my eldest sister and I pulling a rope at both ends with quite heavy things (as stones) tied with some distance from each other and when there were bubbles, our father went where the bubbles were and he used his "tallakeb" then bring out fish. I have never seen nor heard nor read anybody doing this. I don't know where our father got this idea, but we really catched many fishes by this. My mother was following us holding the "batulang" where our father placed the fishes. So we were four in the work. We used to do this in rivers.

My parents taught me a lot. They taught me to be humble, sharing, God fearing, and responsible. There are things that I learned from other people as well but my parents were my teachers for the most part of my life.
