Last July 20, we had our Diversity and Inclusion event for women, which we called "Empowering Women on the Go". We worked with a local JCI chapter, JCI Bai Lawanen, and their members were able to listen to Harriet Fernandez, a director for an IT unit at Xavier University, and Shayryl Mae Ramos, a learning management system administrator, also at Xavier University.

The workshop was on Google Drive and on being able to balance work and home roles. The attendees were able to get great tips from the speakers and were able to see how Google Drive may be able to help improve their lives; as entrepreneurs, as mothers, as women.

Thank you JCI Bai Lawanen, through President Zeanette Jo Cuevas, for helping make this event a success!

Uncle Bong in SG

It's been over two decades since I last saw Uncle Bong. He would usually drop by Diamond Village in Novaliches, Quezon City to visit Lola Magding and my mother's side of the family there. Back then, I was still in college, and I think he had also just started working, in the automotive industry. He has since worked in cruise ships and it was a good stroke of fortune when he told me that they would be dry-docking in Singapore. Mama's side has always been close-knit and could see the fondness in his eyes as he recalled his dealings with Lola Magding and her children, Mama included. He would then share stories of how many of our relatives emigrated off the "isla" to find better opportunities in Manila. Given the brief opportunity, I'm still blessed to have seen him again after all these years. I am also happy that he was able to meet Mae and his "apos". Until we next see each other, Uncle Bong!

Family Visits Singapura

My parents and in-laws traveled to Singapore last September and it was truly memorable! I'm trying out some code to display a Google Photos album and it's quite cool that I'm able to embed the album here. Credits to Pavex for the great tool. He details out how to use it here . Check out the album below!

CDO and Cebu 2019

These are some of the pictures I took during the CDO (Cagayan de Oro) and Cebu legs of our 2019 trip to the Philippines. In CDO, we did a joint birthday celebration for our kids since their birthdays are just a week apart. It was a great time to catch up with extended family and friends. We then flew to Cebu City and spent a couple of days meeting family and close friends. Since Cebu has direct flights to Singapore, it made a lot of sense to make the Queen City of the South as the last stop. Check out the albums below: Cagayan de Oro Cebu
