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). By taking advantage of the online space, MSME owners have become unsung heroes of the economy, all the while providing for their families and making their business dreams a reality.  SM Supermalls very well understands the potential of each Filipino to be successful business owners because of their founde

Family Dinner at David's Tea House

My aunt attended the Philippine Pediatric Society Annual Convention weeks ago. If I remembered it right we were the ones who usually come with her to attend the convention here in Manila (we were still living in the province) and because she doesn't have a family of her own, she tags us along with her every time and that was more than a decade ago. If there's one thing I am thankful for being in a family of physicians is that I have supply of vitamins for my tots--yearly supply. Eversince they were born I didn't spend much on their vitamins and I only buy if they ran out of their alternative. I get a supply of milk, rice cereals and expensive skin care products from them. She was our pediatrician when we were kids and became the pedia of my kids when we were still in the province.

We didn't get to visit her at the hotel but we meet up on the last day of her convention. We picked her up at the the PICC and went to Mall of Asia for our dinner. Their love for food is our way of family bonding. I think it is very obvious from what we ordered during our dinner.

The little girl fell asleep already en route to the restaurant. Took pictures while waiting for our order.


The waiters served our ginormous dinner just in time. We ended up taking home doggy bags because we can't finish everything anymore. My little boy enjoyed their food as well as the little girl. My niece who is very fond of my little boy became my instant babysitter because she was the one feeding LJ that night. One thing I noticed from the restaurant is they don't have high chairs for babies. I had to feed A sitting on my lap which was very inconvenient because she grabs everything from the table. I'm just not sure if all their branches are the same. 

My niece and the little boy was amazed with the small artificial fishes swimming up and down the tubes. 

They were having conversation when randomly my niece asked LJ,
I : LJ, what's you favorite color?
LJ : Led (red). 

Seriously I'm not sure if it's his favorite color though he gave the right answer to the question. Oh my little boy is growing up so fast.
