Most Inspiring Batangueño Entrepreneur Award

I am most appreciative and honored to have been given the Most Inspiring Batangenya Award, by GoNegosyo, and handed over to me by Governor Vilma Santos at the Provincial Auditorium, Batangas City.
"Most inspiring Batangueño Entrepreneur -Special Award for establishing as the online portal that showcases the beauty of the province and its people, thus helping promote tourism in the province. "Her success has proven the Batangeuño's ability to utilize their innate sense of resourcefulness, determination and enthusiasm in developing profitable entrepreneurial ventures that uplift lives and contribute towards economic development."Signed by Jose Ma A Conception and Governor Vilma Santos Recto Given on the 7th day of November 2008"

Batangas is my old hometown, thus I felt compelled to accept the award in person, even though I am still recovering from a massive surgery. I also went to honor my ancestors who were from there and my father Ramon A Limjoco, who was the Charter and founding President of the Batangas Chamber of Commerce and the Batangas Lion's club in the 1960's. I want to give credit to my own mentors, Dennis Patterson who forced me into learning web design and Photoshop, and to my first cousin Joel Limjoco Pastor who allowed me to put up all the sites I wanted, such as our clan site.

Ramon Limjoco 90th Birthday Dinner

We had scheduled a party for my dad's 90th birthday, with over 30 guests and family, to be held at a restaurant in Subic Freeport. During that week dad didn't feel well so he asked me to cancel the party, and I was in Hong Kong with Dave! I sent out email cancellations but they didn't get theirs and wound up at the restaurant only to find no one there.

I directed them to our house, and didn't tell dad till they were there. It was quite dim and dad is legally blind now, so he didn't even see them come in.

Dad wanted just the 4 of us to have a quiet dinner, but since it was such a momentous birthday, 90, I decided at the last minute to include two gal pals who just live a few houses down. One friend brought her fiancé. We had another young chap who might write dad's bio there too. Then another friend who didn't get the cancellation called and we had her come too, for a total of 5 adult guests and two children of one of my gal pals.

Thank goodness when my bro…

89th & 83rd Birthday for my Parents

Luncheon Lauriat for Ramon A Limjoco 89th and Helen Limjoco 83rd Birthday Sept. 7, 2008-Tagaytay Highlands China Palace, Mall of Asia, Manila.(Hold your mouse over the photos to see the captions describing who are in the various shots.)
I had two weeks to put together a hurried guest list as I had not been feeling well up until a few days before the party. My mom and dad's birthdays fall within 1 week of each other. Most of the people we know live in or have easier access to Manila than Subic Bay Freeport, where we live. We all decided to have the luncheon in Manila. We had an intimate luncheon for 45 friends and relatives, hastily thrown together.

My parents kept insisting that I cancel the party because of how unwell they said I looked, but I knew it would force me to Manila, and I thought I would just see my doctora after the luncheon on Monday.

My mom scheduled an exam by my Doc. Hildegarde Vistal, the day before the party on Saturday because she said she didn't like my color…
