My name is Juan Emilio.
Juan > One > Uno. Hence, “unoemilio.”
Get it?
But please do call me Jake.

I was born and raised in Manila
and I completed my studies
in London and Singapore.

I’ve got a keen interest in traveling
and documenting it, albeit amateurishly.

My pastime usually involves
the NBA (a Laker fan through rings and achings),
politics, films that make you go “woah,”
books that make you go “ahh,” and live concerts.

Most of all, I’m a dad to Ellie.

  8. Rosey

    Hi Jake! I enjoyed seeing your pics from all over especially from Prambanan and Borobudur. It inspires me to travel to places like that where people don’t often go. I thought it was in Cambodia at first. Happy travels! Take care! 🙂

    Hi Jake.. I read that you’re using 650D. am actually planning to buy a dslr cam and I dont know what to buy. now, I already got an idea. haha. what lens/es do you use?

  13. Christine

    Hello. I’ve read your recent blogs and it def tickles my feet to wander more. You’ve been hailed officially as my travel inspiration 🙂 . I really want to step on different lands and know different stories behind. I’m still on my baby-steps traveling, and hopefully baby-steps will grow into bigger one. Srsly, and this has no touch of fangirling tendencies 🙂 Godbless

  14. falcondaily

    You write as if you’re talking straight out of the blog post or so I imagine. I hope to come across another one of your new blog entries for inspiration. Cheers to this site!

  15. Patty

    Hi Jake!
    You’re blogs are great! Thanks for sharing them. I hope I could have my own travelogue as well. You’re an inspiration to people like me who wants to see the world out there. Keep it up! Hope to read more of your adventures!

  16. Mary

    God Bless you!

  17. Janne

    You have no idea how much i envy you for coming to many edm fests! Im approaching you the next time i see you with the ph flag! Lol 😀

  18. maia

    The looks, the smarts and the wanderlust. ❤ Oh Jake, hope i'll be a subject of your photographs in the future. just kidding, i know that places and scenery is more of your specialty. 🙂

  19. Dear Jake,

    How do I reach you thru e-mail? Was supposed to DM you about it but then twitter makes it impossible! Too weird to be disclosed here on your blog comment section! And no, I am not selling and giving you stuff


  20. Eljhon Vergar

    Great Blog Jake 😉👍 aca-awesome 👏👏 IDOL 👍 Hoping to see you in the near future 🙏🙏 Keep safe as always and may God continue to bless you and your family

  21. Both of these agencies develop future Korean celebrities. They are just like ABS-CBN and GMA here in our country. Home to showbiz personalities and talents. Like for example Girls’ Generation, a famous girl-group member of SM Entertainment (Agency), together with EXO and others; while in YG we have 2ne1 ( Sandara Park is a member!), Bigbang, Psy ( Gangnam Style guy! HAHA) and others! Oh please please… I hope I answered your question (I think it did :3 ) and maybe some other time, you’d love to visit any of those agencies and document it 🙂 that’d be a dream come true mainly because you are able to go there! Oh and, keep up!

  22. Mitzi

    I would really love to meet you someday.Take a pic and maybe hug you. If I’m still in my consciousness, baka nahimatay nko. First glance plang. Hays

  23. maan pornobe

    hi jake im a big fan of yours, i hope one day i will see you. 🙂 you and andi look good together.. sana kayo nalang 🙂

  24. crisse

    Been reading your posts and it makes me want to travel too, plus you write as if it is sooo much fun despite the unexpected bumps here and there,, for me you are the definition of young, wild and free (so envious), (assumption based on your posts only) ,..
    just keep blogging, I’m a fan now 🙂

  25. Addled Conductor

    Your mesmerizing video post with Isaiah in Instagram led me to this site. I was a skeptic at first, thinking that maybe this person generates a lot of traffic due to his father’s influence, I was wrong and I want to apologize for that thought. I read all your post and found it interestingly an easy read, due to your great language command, humorous, witty and from time-to-time insightful. Continue doing what your doing and God bless! *will continue reading your entries here from now on!* 😀

  26. Hi there Jakey! Been stalking you since idk forever.. (don’t creep out) haha. I just love your name, blog and every single thing about you. Been trying to see you. And btw last October 1 2014 – Hardwell, i saw you finally in person but i was crying that time because my mom’s at the vip section that time and i’m at the lower box section. I was shouting for your name and “bring me there, itakas mo na ko, si jake si jake” 😦 i didn’t get a chance to meet you and have a pic with you. So i hope to see you very soon! and my birthday’s coming up, i want to meet you or just have a pic with you 😦 (pretty please) Best birthday gift ever swear!!!! I LOVE YOU JAKEY, take care always!

    Hi Jake! The first (and hopefully not the last) time I met you was during God Gave Me You Taping. I was so sad na hindi ako nakapagpicture sayo coz I was really following the rule na bawal magpapicture lalo na daw sayo 😦 After that, I can’t stop thinking about you (HAHAHAHA) and decided to go here and read your blogs. Everything is just so perfect. Reading your blogs felt like I was there with you at that certain place. Keep these blogs coming, coz I know that you inspire alot of people. You inspired me to be my most adventurous self that I can be. Hoping to see you again soon, Jake! At sana the next time na magkita tayo, makapagpapicture na ako. (Kasi di talaga ako maka move on dun eh 😦 God bless and More power. Stay awesome, cool guy ❤️
