Thank you for the gift of your visit!
I would probably enjoy being a real post/mail(wo)man but God has other plans for me. …and so I earn a living through engagements in the environment and social development, and energy sectors.
I am also the cofounder of asyaRED Trading, a social enterprise that focuses on (i) disease control and prevention, (ii) climate solutions and disaster preparedness, (iii) natural and organic goods, and (iv) cultural heritage and creative products. I had always aspired to contribute significantly to nation-building and I believe that businesses and entrepreneurs of this generation have greater opportunities to make a difference.
I have great dreams for this country. I want less children on the streets and more in schools. I want better leaders and politicians. Although I personally enjoy working/living abroad and embracing new cultures, I want more jobs for Filipinos here, not elsewhere. I want lesser traffic and cleaner air. I want lesser reliance on fossil fuels and more on renewable energies. I want lesser number of beauty contests but more competitions in the Math and Sciences.
My husband and partner in life, JR (a chef-in-training and my boss in asyaRED), is my best friend and my biggest fan (even if I have zero talent in the kitchen). He will allow me to own dogs, hens, and even an elephant. There is one hen I will call Granny-Nok, the grandmother of the whole clan, and the one hen he cannot ever ever turn into adobo or tinola! ;D
I dabble in photography, painting, and calligraphy. I find great joys in reading so if you have a list of must-read books, please tell me about it! I enjoy traveling and had been blessed with the chances to live and work in Bangladesh and Cambodia. I will always be in awe of the beauty and mystery of this world, the works of talented artisans and authors, and heritage structures and temples.
I believe in a non-discriminating God. In the goodness of man. And in the little things that truly matter.
P.s. Please stay a little bit longer? Some of my photo works are in the Gallery page.
