As a young kid, I loved watching shows like Digital LG Quiz and Battle of the Brains. I never became a contender in any of these quiz shows, but I learned a lot. It was like looking back to everything I learned–and didn’t learn–in grade school.
Most items were general knowledge questions, things that some people consider useless and won’t help you get far in life. But believe it or not, it worked wonders for me. Thanks to these quiz shows, I became more curious and thirsty for knowledge. Such was its impact on me that even after college, I never stopped learning new things whether it’s in line with my job or anything related to my passion–Philippine history.
