Fangirl Diaries: SB19 and orchestra

As a self-proclaimed hardcore fangirl, I also admit I am not that knowledgeable when it comes to music technicalities. I remember seeing a meme on Facebook about a set of notes that says, “What an inspirational message.” And when I asked my musically-inclined friend, she said that it only shows the word CABBAGE when you read the notes. I got curious but of course, it would take a lot of time to actually digest everything. I know how to play the guitar though. And that’s the closest I could say to knowing music but apart from that, I am okay

WFH thoughts

Two years since I started working from home as per compliance with quarantine guidelines in the Philippines and I must say, I have developed some habits far from what I have been doing pre-pandemic. Comparing WFH and on-site work can be difficult for one has what the other lacks but if I were to choose, as of now, I’d rather continue working from home where I am closer to my family. Aside from that, I also like the idea of not having to wear office uniform everyday. I don’t hate our company uniform but compared to now when I can

Jollibee Group Foundation’s Farmer Entrepreneurship Program: Enabling Growth, Sharing Joy

MANILA, Philippines. August 13, 2021 — Jollibee Group Chairman and Founder, Tony Tan Caktiong, decided to pursue a bold and valuable idea back in 2008. He thought: what if the company were to buy directly from farmers so they can have a regular and stable market to sell to? This comes from a recognition that even if agriculture is one of the country’s key sectors, farmers remain to be among the country’s most vulnerable, and their lack of opportunities and resources prevents them from earning a higher income. Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF), the company’s social development arm, then took on

Things I miss in Japan: Clothes

One thing I admire about Japan, is their wide acceptance to fashion. Whatever the weather may be, people still enjoy the freedom of expressing themselves through their fashion style. I am not much of a fashionista but I always choose where I am most comfortable wearing. Living in Japan, I never thought I could explore clothing as much as I did there. Below are a few: Sakura viewing in Ueno Park (Tokyo) I was on my freshie tourist mode here as this was just a few weeks since I arrived in Japan last 2017 so what I wore here were
