Meet Ligaya Salonga: Busy Woman and Proud Mom, Grandmother
If the name given to you at birth were any indication of how your life was going to be then Ligaya Salonga is quite happy with hers.
“I couldn’t be any prouder of my children,” said the woman behind world-class singer and multi-award winning actress Lea Salonga and conductor, musical arranger, orchestrator, and musical director Gerard Salonga.
Time has certainly not diminished this lady’s sharp wit as she continues to manage her daughter’s thriving career, but these days Mommy Ligaya has also moved on to new activities such as being a doting grandmother to Nicole. “I spend a lot of time with my grandchildren especially when Lea has commitments overseas. We take photos of all our activities together, and even when Nicole or Antonio are overseas, I always receive pictures of them,” she said.
Reconnecting and Rediscovering Using a laptop is another activity that Mommy Ligaya has discovered. “It’s a good thing that I’ve started learning how to use a computer because that’s where I store all my photos of Nicole. Windows 7 has a feature called Windows Live Gallery where I can organize all our pictures and create albums,” she added.
“One of the great things about technology is its capability to help people discover new passions and interests,” said Mae Moreno, Windows Client Product Manager, Microsoft Philippines. “As Mommy Ligaya proves, the benefits of technology do not only span across all generations, it also helps connect generations,” she said.
