It's always rewarding to see other institutions that you respect feature you on their very pages. This month I am very honored to be featured by Preview Magazine. This marks my 10th anniversary as a technopreneur... how fast time flies! Just proves to show that if you love doing something and you believe in it, you'll never take notice of time.

Flipping through the pages, this one takes home the cake as it encompasses 10 years of my work. From my bedroom setup to finally seeing my vision to reality and helping other startups get started on their dreams as well. Not to mention my other passions like Shoephoric and The Playground by PHS.

There are times when you suddenly have that feeling in your gut where you are at your strongest, that the distance between you and your dreams is suddenly blurred, it's that state of mind that tugs you and gets you to just give 101% in everything you do.

That's where I'm at right now. That sweet place of strength that just gets me to live life to the fullest. Instead of just settling for less, I exhaust all options because I believe I can achieve more. The secret is a line you should start applying to your daily life... every morning when you wake up you say "I AM UNSTOPPABLE!" It may sound weird at first but once it gets inside you, your mindset will dictate your actions and court success. It's all in the mind.

I find it really fun to share anything that moves me and makes me happy. I am way beyond stoked and excited for this second cooking demo at LifeScience that I will be doing for Mom bloggers. It's the joy of preparing the most healthy food possible in a fun and creative manner- easy to prepare and delicious at the same time!

Not to be short on recipes from my ever rich imagination, my cooking demo will be composed of the following parts, each recipe can be enjoyed separately or together as a full course meal. DIG IN!

Shoes are definitely on top of my priority list. They play a huge role in my outfit choices for the day and I find it awesome to share this hobby of mine with everyone- every single day!

That was the primary objective for www.shoephoric.com. After a lot of planning that went on and on for over a year and with my experience as a customer and a service provider, I believe that NOW is the perfect time to open the SHOEPHORIC SHOPS to give all collectors, merchants and resellers a PLATFORM TO BUY AND SELL SHOES ONLINE. All I can say is that I'm in a state of shoephoria! Let me count the reasons why:

As you all know, my love for shoes go the extra mile. Whether it is helping a movement, building communities or getting likeminded people involved, I definitely am into turning my passion for shoes my medium in getting the MESSAGE OF POSITIVITY across.

I am more than excited to announce that finally, the latest version of Shoephoric (www.shoephoric.com) will be up and running sooner than you think! The website aims to achieve more interaction with individuals who share the same passion for shoes as I do. It's an online haven that aims to bring everyone together for the love of heels or Air Jordans, it's basically the same thing... it's for the love of shoes!

What I want is for every young woman out there to seek what they love and always be hungry. That hunger can translate onto bigger and better things unimaginable. But it is possible, a little luck and a lot of heart is the way to go.

As quoted by Tim Robbins: "You have to seize an opportunity when it presents itself" and in my humble opinion it pays for us women to always be prepared and ready to go all out when the time comes. We know what we want and we will get at it, it's only a matter of time. I might go a bit 90's on this but indeed girl power will always be a force to be reckoned with.

Now that summer is here. I feel like I have the creative license to compare my drive and enthusiasm to the burning heat of the sun... it's unwavering and cannot be stopped, it's intense and powerful! With that being said, I can feel waves of energy coming my direction, and it feels so good!

Last Friday's DLSU Google Campus Week talk was definitely one of the speaking engagements in my book. Through it, I had the opportunity to share my story with others. It was a fulfilling and a heartfelt one. Presenting it and having people get a glimpse of my life as a start up as well as the fruition of my dream advocacies was pretty emotional. Judging from the feedback I got, I hope I've left the attendees with a spark of inspiration. It's all about following your dreams, breaking the barriers and making them come true!

Here's a recorded version of the exact speech I did if you want to hear my inspirational (ahem!) piece in all it's recorded audio glory!

It's been a few days already, but I still am not over it just yet...

Last week was the Tango Festival, and now just like every year, I've been consistently getting this Tango Withdrawal Syndrome. Every day since last week, I've been in a state of euphoria and the feeling is so overwhelming that the experience brought out my inner poetic/artsy self... this is the outcome, so dig in and enjoy, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed wordcrafting it...

With you, I'm not afraid to soar and explore the possibilities because I am aware that if I fail and falter, you'll be there to pick me up and make me feel strong again. With you, I am more daring, yet calculated, wiser in every step I make. You balance everything out and give me that extra boost of energy when I need it. Without you I couldn't have achieved everything faster than I did... and I'm forever thankful.

I can only wish you the best that life can offer because you deserve it. May you be happy, strong and healthy so that we can continue what we've started and chase our dreams together!

Who doesn't like Ice Cream? It's a treat that brings back our inner kid. It gives us a much needed cool down and it's a quick fix for the sweet tooth in all of us.

When I was younger, I've always had a soft spot for these cold treats but because I'm lactose intolerant, the side effects kick in as soon as I've finished my cup, regardless of what flavor it is.

And now that I have the resources and the know-how, I can make my own... guilt free and dairy free goodness, without scrimping on flavor, texture and taste!

I introduce to you my latest passion project, a tasty venture into the sweet world of alternative Ice Cream goodness... Ann's Dairy Free Ice Cream - a guilt free, much healthier alternative without compromising on the traditional and artisanal flavor that we've all come to love! It's Ice Cream after all!

Being a foodie (although more selective these days) has let me tap into my other love, that is preparing kitchen masterpieces that my family and friends can enjoy. The original Breville jaffle maker was released to the public in 1974. It was the first electric toasted snack maker to seal the edges and cut a sandwich in half. Now reissued as a Limited Edition version with a modern twist, The Original '74 Jaffle Maker by Breville makes it possible for me to create dishes otherwise are served in high end restaurants and coffee shops... much love included, because I make them.

I’m a multi-passionate entrepreneur. I had my first start-up in 2003. I’m one of the prime movers in the Philippine start-up scene and I’m honored to be recognized as one of the community’s Faces of Change. I’m the Founder of Shoephoric.com, CEO of Youphoric Labs and Managing Director of The Playground by PHS.

I have always been in love with technology. Growing up, the toys I played with included resistors, capacitors, integrated circuits, multi-testers laying around in my dad's shop. I graduated with a degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering and went on to pursue my Masters in Information Technology.

You can see that I have a great love for technology. I also have a great love for. . .  SHOES! I created my personal shoe database so instead of rummaging through my closet every day I simply browse my shoe albums in my computer. My simple “shoe organizer” has now grown into an online community that connects shoe lovers worldwide.

I’m passionate about life. I know that to be able to live my best life, I have to take care of myself. I love to dance. I love to exercise. I love learning how to nourish myself and my loved ones. I love to live a healthy life. It is for this reason that I also established The Playground by PHS. It’s a dance/fitness/wellness studio (both physical and virtual) to serve as a venue to help others in achieving an active and healthy lifestyle.

I chose the entrepreneur path because it allows me to pursue my passions. It is my hope that through this website, I will be able to inspire women like me to CHASE THEIR DREAMS and have the courage to TAKE RISKS. It is in doing so that we REALIZE OUR POTENTIAL AND ACHIEVE THE LIFE OF FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS.

Much love!
