"Harris Bernal" sounds weirdly Filipino…
I’m using my dad’s middle name and surname. He’s half-Australian and Spanish-Filipino, that’s why it sounds like that.
That’s an interesting mix. What culture would you say reflects your personality more?
Well, I was born and raised here in the Philippines, so I would say Pinay na Pinay talaga ako. But I do look like a foreigner kaya akala nila minsan 'di ako nagta-Tagalog, ha ha!
Do you think you intimidate people because of how you look?
Yeah, which is so unfair. Like, dude, yeah, I look like a snob but when we start talking you’ll realize that I’m the nicest person you’ll ever meet!
So, what kind of guys approach you?
Foreigner din usually, ha ha!
But what do you prefer: Foreign men or Pinoys?
Pinoys, of course! Filipino men are sweet, funny, and caring.
And as a half-and-half, how would you describe Filipino women?
Well, most of my friends are Pinays and I can say that they are nicer than my Aussie or foreign friends because Pinays are very caring, sweet, and they always take care of me whenever I get drunk!
