Getting down and personal with Judith Cinco of Pic Watch

I recently chatted with Judith Cinco of Pic Watch over Facebook which is not really unusual for us, after all, Judith and her husband, Rudyard, are principal sponsors at our wedding and very dear friends to me and Jay. Judith and Rudyard have always had a knack for business. After giving up a career in basketball, Rudyard went into a car dealing business which later on gave birth to other ventures such as a car wash and a restaurant. Judith, on the other hand, made a leap from a successful corporate career to entrepreneurship by putting up a business distributing one of her life’s little joys […]

I attended my third home schooling conference last September 6. I missed last year’s, but I was able to attend the two conferences before that.

Online Marketing for Success Workshop with Jimmy Cassells

But with Sites Made Simple, a new app released in the market by my company and a more streamlined content marketing strategy, I desperately needed […]

Sinigang Fried Salmon Belly

It was all because we were at the supermarket yesterday and I saw several beautiful strips of Salmon belly. I was raised in a home where everyone love seafood and vegetables; where Shrimps were served on regular days and crabs and clams were a familiar sight at Sunday lunches.  My siblings and I argued over who gets the last squid, craved for our mom’s Ginataang Tulingan (Tuna in coconut milk) and fought over who deserves to get the head of the Maya Maya (Emperor white snapper), aside from dad who pretty much wins it all the time. My husband is no seafood […]

Blogapalooza 2014 is happening this September (and I am going!)

I first had my taste of blogging when Multiply became a hit among internet users around 2004(?) Okay, I’m not really sure because I was a bit behind in blogging and networking during those years. I had a Friendster account but I forgot my password in a matter of two weeks. Anyway, Multiply shut down and took all my pictures with it. Eventually, I put up my first blog, Raising a King, via Vox but Vox was taken down too, maybe because it wasn’t doing as well as Blogspot and WordPress. So I signed up for a Blogspot account, then eventually took […]
