Enjoy the "Halo-Halo Treat"!
In 2008, my motto was “2008 will be Great” and indeed, great things happened. I moved to a new job, went on an Asian cruise and handled fun, exciting and challenging accounts! In 2009, it was “Shine in 2009” and last year was indeed a shining moment not only for me but for the whole team. We won six Gold Quill Awards from IABC (International Association of Business Communicators), and I led three of the industry recognized projects - 3-Pid Handog Edukasyon of P&G and GMA Kapuso Foundation, Global Handwashing Day of UNICEF and Safeguard and The Tour of Hope 2009 of the Bravehearts Coalition.
And to kick-off “Golden 2010”, I created my first blog – “Halo-Halo Treat... enjoying life's mixes!”. Why “Halo-Halo Treat”? Don’t get me wrong, this is not just about food or desserts. I’ll practically blog on anything about life – events, travel, food, places, movies, television, culture, history, gadgets, mainstream and digital media, and many more – “Halo-Halo Treat” indeed. Halo-halo (from the Tagalog word halò, "mix") is a popular Filipino dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and milk to which are added various boiled or sweetened beans, fruits (banana, melon, jack fruit), root crops (ube, sweet potato, corn) and other sweets (leche flan, ice cream, macapuno, kaong and nata de coco from coconut, sago, gulaman) and served cold in a tall glass or bowl.
And another reason why I chose this name is I believe halo-halo symbolizes how we should enjoy life - its mixes, variety and diversity.
Well, there are many more things I need to start on this year but let me do it one by one. For now, let’s enjoy the “Halo-Halo Treat... enjoying life's mixes!”. =)
