Gerome and David

Gerome & David, yeap, that’s what GD stands for.

We are an INTERGENERATIONAL, INTERRACIAL, GAY-MARRIED, HAPPY-GO-LUCKY COUPLE, who decided to add more stories here in the World Wide Web last January 2017.

We came up with this name for our blog because of our letter cut-out initials that I got in a mall when I was in the Philippines. And whenever we go to some places, we usually bring them and take photos of them and with them, sharing to everyone that G & D went there.
