Prior to leaving the country in 2018 to go back to Germany, Krick created a video saying what he will miss after leaving. In one of Krick’s most watched YouTube videos, he recalls living in Leyte saying “it was cool living there.”
He says he missed talking to Filipinos because of their attitude, “Just the attitude of them, the friendliness, the openness, the fun, the I could call someone kuya or ate again that was really a good moment,” he said on his video “I Miss the Philippines“.
