The best clothing store for me is... Uniqlo, for me and for the boys. You can buy everything there. Everything can be mixed and matched.
The music I listen to is... 70s music -- "Blame it on the Boogie"
The best compliment I’ve received is... When other parents say “You’re doing a good job” when they see the success that we’ve had with parenting our son with autism. Not many people say that; sometimes they just say “Good job” to the child, but they don’t see the work that the mother does.
My best recipe is... Iberian chicken. It’s just garlic, chicken, toyo and calamansi, then you bake it in the oven. Parang pinaghirapan pero hindi.
My shortcut to feeling beautiful is... Big, bold accessories. I always buy locally-designed, bonggacious [grand] accessories. My favorites are from OS accessories, Ken Samudio, Magpie's Nest, Natalya Lagdameo, L' Indochine and Flutter statement jewelry by Kat Ong.
My favorite place for inspiration is... The garden.
My most recent purchase was... Crazy necklace from Magpie's Nest.
When I want to indulge, I... I go out with friends. Everything kasi now is online, so I'm happy when I get to see friends in person.
The movie I like the most is... Action movies that I watch with the boys. Wala na akong mga rom-com (romance-comedy).
You know you’re becoming your mom when... When I hear her voice when I open my mouth
You're a Filipino parent if you... If you say “Sshh.” 'Yung sumusutsot.
