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).

Sunday Photodiary : The Reason


The house is silent and all the things are in place. The living room was so tidy and the floor is squeaky clean. Bed was neatly done and blanket was properly folded. The fridge was full of adult unhealthy food. I often woke up late and most of the time pampers myself alone in a salon with no reason to wake up but attend to myself only.

Life before was empty. The house may be tidy but it was dull. Silence amidst the music was deafening. Waking up each morning was never worthy aside from working to pay my monthly bills. Life was a cliche back then.

Today, our living room is messed up and more a lot like chaos. Toy cars underneath my pillow, which makes it uncomfortable to sleep, and a messed up bed with stuffed toys on my head. A cupboard filled with healthy food and baby food. More days of short sleep and empty pocket. No more night out with friends and visit to my favorite malls and no more visit to salon.


I know life had a drastic change since both of you came into our lives. I was so blessed to be your mother and gave me the chance to take care of you. You brought us so much joy that it makes every morning worthy waking up knowing that I have a reason to.

Life before was tidy yet it was lonely.

My life will never be this happy without you. I have a lot of things to thank for and the first one is having been entrusted with two lives to take care of.

I love you both.
