A coffee with... lawyer Jun Pepito

THIS week we have a coffee with lawyer Jun Pepito.

Name: Jun Pepito.

Occupation: Lawyer.

Key to life: Humour. I saw Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde and became a lawyer.

How long have you lived in the Gladstone region: Since 2008 and I have lots of friends here. It's a very friendly place.

How do you take your favourite drink? I usually mix a red or white wine with lemonade. Too much wine and I go to sleep.

On a sunny Saturday you can probably find me at Yaralla with friends.

When I was young I grew up in the Philippines and my dream was to become a doctor but it didn't happen.

I can't remember the last time I was on a boat with my father. We are a fishing family.

My most memorable pet was Allison, a dog, and he always waited at the seaside until we came back from fishing.

My secret talent is I love dancing, cultural and even rock'n'roll.

When I feel like splurging I buy ties and suits from Vinnies.

My favourite holiday destination is going home to family in Cebu.

Rice, usually white is something I can't live without.

Somebody who is a larrikin or the actor Sean Patrick Hayes from the sitcom Will & Grace would play me in the movie about my life.

I'm more the Jack McFarland character. I have irreverent humour.

To keep fit and healthy I walk my dog.

The best piece of wisdom I've been told is that patience is a virtue, from my mother Abundia.

What are you spruiking? What annoys me are people who think they are better than other people, put downs.

Everyone should be treated equally regardless of background.
