COLLECTOR is defined as “a person who collects or amasses objects as a hobby”.
By training I am an architect but by heart I am a full-blooded collector. I got this collecting bug from my father who is also a collector of stamps, coins, paper money and ephemera. I collect mostly Filipiniana memorabilia but I also collect few foreign items.
I was 14 years old when I started collecting Ninoy Aquino political pins and later Cory Aquino pins. Later on, I developed an interest in comics, stamps, postcards, boy scout memorabilia, vintage toys, books, magazines maps, political memorabilia, medals, trade cards, records, Philippine coins and banknotes.
