Victory Party Manny Pacquiao

Dec. 8, 2009
Victory Party for Manny Pacquiao at the home of Deputy NSA Luis and governor of Ilocos Sur, "Chavit" Singon

My parents and I attended the party for Manny Pacquiao the other night. I've been wanting to meet him for the last few years, but my schedule never seemed to fit with the dates of prior parties. One of my best friends, Annette Ablan came over too. My parents decided to drive back that night to Subic instead of taking a hotel room. So Annette came and dropped me off at my hotel after the party was over.

When I got the invite this time, I just jumped all over it, as I was going to be in Manila anyway to attend to a few business matters, get a medical checkup and do some last minute Christmas shopping.

My mom, Helen Limjoco, met Manny and she got her trophy shot with him too. Unfortunately my 90 year old dad, Ramon, who also attended, is legally blind and he couldn't make it through the crush of people who were ganging up on Manny trying to get their…

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…

Gonegosyo-55 Inspiring Stories of Women Entrepreneurs

I am honored and humbled to be in Joey Conception's Gonegosyo book called - 55 Inspiring Stories of Women Entrepreneurs, which President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo formally launched. It is the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship-Go Negosyo’s third book focusing on women entrepreneurship. It was held at the National Bookstore in Rockwell, Makati City, Feb. 26, 2009.

So many people behind any success I had.  In the book I mentioned my friend as one of my mentors, Dennis Patterson. He taught me how to make websites and use photoshop. He literally forced them upon me, because he wanted me to be able to do something with my photos and experiences. He gave me two programs, Photoshop and Net Objects Fusion, which was a WYSIWIG program, or basically what you see is what you get, website making program. Without him, I wouldn't have been able to build this business with Dave.  I can't forget, and did mention in the book, my first cousin Joel Limjoco Pastor who was instrumental in p…
