Team Sweetie consists of Gian and Sheila, a loving boyfriend-and-girlfriend team of adventure junkies who are eternally thirsty for the next adrenaline rush.

During weekdays, Gian works as a marketing manager and content specialist for PhotoUp, a company that specializes in real estate photo editing. Although writing is one of his passions (he fantasizes writing his own novel someday), he hopes to someday save enough money to start a few businesses such as bed-and-breakfast, adventure tour operation, and peasant restaurant that will readily cater to fellow adventurers. When weekdays and holidays arrive, Gian’s personality changes as he transforms into a rabid, half-mad, frothy mouthed adventurer who wants nothing more than the feeling of staring injury and death at the face. Gian is prone to injuries, yet he proudly reveals his scars as trademarks of his passion for the wicked adventures.

Weeknights find Sheila working as a virtual assistant. Sweet, simple, and motherly, no one, at first glance, would believe that on weekends, she becomes a die-hard fanatic of mountaineering, rock climbing, wall climbing, caving, and a host of other adventure sports. Sheila hopes to travel around the world in search for the ultimate adrenaline lust. Preparing mouthwatering meals from the simplest of ingredients is her forte; when she’s up in the mountains, expect to enjoy a sumptuous feast.
