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 […]

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 […]

Godiva Natural Skin Care happy li’l consumer

I have a confession to make: I know nothing much about skin care products. I just wasn’t exposed to them, I guess? I didn’t experience a zit phase and having dark spots on my face (other than my freckles) and body wasn’t something I had to contend with until I got pregnant with our youngest son, Judah at the age of 35. I practically got away using whatever soap there was on the soap dish although I did try a couple of local moisturizers, a toner, and (beats me why!) that peeling liquid you put on your face? I forgot […]
