A Decade of Cyber Press celebration

Last night I attended the 10th anniverary of the Philippine Cyberpress. It was also the last public event of Sec Ver Pena as CICT head so I made sure I was able to listen to his farewell speech.

and have a souvenir photo taken with him.

The highlight of the program was a fashion show by some top executives in the industry such as Cynthia Mamon, Sun Microsystem CEO, Nilo Cruz, HP CEO, Rose Montenegro, PLDT SVP, Boboy Romero, VP Innove, and the new Marketing Director of Microsoft (forgot her name).

Of course the fashion show won't be complete without the presence of some of them like Erwin Oliva.....

and Alex Villafania!

Congressman Simeon Kintanar, ICT chairperson gave the closing remarks.

And of course a souvenir shot from my co 'powerful' women, Cynthia Mamon and Lilia Guillermo. Cynthia has been telling us to start with a long overdue project.

A fast update

Been wanting to regularly update my main blog but had been busy the past months finalizing my travel plans next month besides tons of office concerns. Difficult to be a struggling entrepreneur.

So far, have gathered the following learnings :

1. Never lend money even if they beg and promise the world
2. Choose your partners carefully. Think about it a hundred times.

Truly simple one might say but it could be a profound experience once you get into 'that' situation.

I had encountered lots of hitches in the past coupled with domestic concerns (remember I do everything now and rely only on me and myself alone) which has been causing undue stress.

So I decided right after Dad's first death anniversary, off I run to my favorite city (Paris) where I will celebrate my birthday. Would never want to hold it here with very sad memories (dad was buried right before my birthday).
