My favorite song is … Italian song Nella Fantasia by Andrea Bocelli. I also listen to classics like Basil Valdez’s ‘Ngayon at Kailanman’.
The best compliment I’ve received is … “I love your products!” People of different nationalities say, “This is made in the Philippines? I can’t believe it!”
My signature recipe is … Beef bourguignon. It’s special because it’s festive and it entails hard labor -- you have to sear it, then you boil it, then you have to wait for the perfect timing when to pour the bourguignon. It takes about half a day to cook. Whenever I cook it there’s so much love that goes into it.
My best shortcut to feeling beautiful is … Chanel’s #37 lipstick.
My favorite place for inspiration is … My home office, which is my sanctuary. Everything happens here.
My instant mood booster is … Chocolates. Flat Tops masaya na ako – proudly Pinoy. But nothing beats Hershey’s.
My most recent purchase was … Hair care products.
I buy my clothes from … Anywhere -- palengke, the bazaars, the mall. I like to haggle so I get the best deals.
My best recent discovery is … FTI weekend market. They have nice stuff, some are branded, some are not, but the ones you will find in this palengke are the same ones you’ll find in bazaars – for half the price! That’s where I found some of my best dresses.
The best advice I ever received is … “Follow your heart.”
