SM Supermalls launched the SM StartUp Package for aspiring entrepreneurs

It has been almost two years since the pandemic brought Filipino life and many livelihoods to a screeching halt. According to a 2020 Asian Development Bank (ADB) study of 1,804 Philippine MSMEs, 70.6% were forced to temporarily close with 66.2% reported to have temporary staff cuts during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. Bucking these statistics and the odds created by the changes in the landscape, the enterprising Filipino found many opportunities in online businesses, with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) recording over 88,000 new e-commerce registrations at the end of 2020. This figure is projected to be a million e-commerce enterprises by 2022 (from 500,000 in 2020).

Family Day Fun

I have been meaning to go to Salcedo/Legaspi Village Market/s which are open during weekends. The purpose of going to these markets was to buy fresh produce which are not found in malls and markets and the gastronomic experience with the family.

It was a weekend that J wasn't so busy and finally we pushed through. But because everyone of us woke up late, meaning 10:00 in the morning, we arrived there past lunch already and was the peak of the scorching summer heat. My little girl was still sleepy but my little boy and J went to the playground already while my sister and I went around the stalls and my eyes feast with the fresh produce they were selling. Pardon some of my photos, lost some of it because my fone didn't cooperate with me.



After roaming around the stalls, I got hungry and realized that since we arrived late some of the menu were already not available so I ordered food that I don't prepare at home. LJ enjoyed the freedom of playing in the park along with other kids. As usual, he is scared of heights so whenever he came past thru the stairs, he takes precautions by holding the rails (well at least he knows how to take precautions).


Hoping to have more weekends like this.
