Press Information

March 2014

A Salute to Mothers Everywhere
            In the Philippines, we celebrate March as Women’s Role in History Month in accordance to Proclamation No. 227, signed in 1988. In this month, we recognize the contributions and achievements of the female gender which includes the most important women in our lives—our mothers.

            Women have contributed much to the development of our nation. There are many we now consider heroes. In the past, their accomplishments have been neglected or relegated as something of lesser importance. But now with keen awareness, we are reassessing their roles and appreciating their participation. In this day and age women especially mothers are able to multitask and perform the multifaceted role of a mom. There are home makers who are also in the corporate world. Some are entrepreneurs who are also experts in raising children.

“Knowing that the task of motherhood is delicate and requiring dedication, Philips Avent has been coming up with innovative products that will help mothers everywhere. This year, it is celebrating 30 years of passionate pursuit of creating products with mothers in mind,” says Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Consumer Lifestyle Business Development Manager for Health and Wellness.

            Philips Avent has been manufacturing products that accompany mothers and babies from “pregnancy to playground,” including newborn starter sets, baby monitors and toddler feeding and drinking.  Philips Avent has become the dependable brand for infant feeding, breast pumps, and other baby health and monitoring accessories thus the tag, “Number 1 brand trusted by moms1.” Aside from these, it also champions the cause of mothers and advocates breast-feeding to promote bond between mothers and babies.

On its 30th anniversary, Philips Avent is celebrating years of commitment to being a Mom’s most trusted partner in taking care of her child and this will be done through exciting in-store promotions and activities as part of its year-long celebration. As a kick-off, the company launches the search for 30 women who exemplify and embody the multi-faceted role of a mother. Through these women, Philips Avent will be able to share amazing stories on motherhood and child rearing that every mom can learn from. Their stories are deemed to inspire women and families to celebrate motherhood. Qualified candidates must be moms who were or are Philips Avent users from diverse background who have outstanding tales of motherhood to share.

“With these promotions, we are made more aware of the things mothers go through just to raise us properly and the tremendous amount of love they generously give. We also appreciate the little things that help our mothers get through their tasks,” Achacoso concludes.

Through the years, Philips Avent has been continuously developing innovative products that provide aid to everyday child-rearing situations and activities. It is proof of the unfailing support the company has been giving to advocate mothers and families all over the world. In its 30th year anniversary such commitment is fortified with activities and programs that are deemed to make an invaluable mark to the society.

My SM Center Pasig's Innocence in Time Book Launching

It was really a successful event and an emotional one for me. I have a lot to thanked for but I can't continue my speech as tears swelled up my eyes and my throat is filled with overwhelming emotion.

Now this is my time to say everything that I should have said last April 13th.

I seldom do this or close to not doing it in public but for this wonderful milestone that happened to me, I would like everyone to know that I am very thankful that the Lord made all these things possible. He used such great people to help me achieve this level which never occurred to me being a reality. It was never my dream to have a book launching, yes, it never slipped my mind, but what I've been dreaming about was making it into a movie adaptation, well that was now really a far thing from being granted. Anyway, it was one of my happiest moments, and a real moment on the spotlight that caught my weakness in the midst of appreciation.

Now I'm going to enumerate everyone and one thing that made it into possibility.

To SM Center Pasig, thank you so much for accepting me with arms wide open . I never imagined a prestigious mall like SM would care for a small aspiring individual like me. I have roamed around your mall and have seen small businesses come budding to become successful tenants and even put up more branches in other SM establishments. They have a good heart and I can't thank you enough for making my Book Launching event a memorable one. #iloveSM because #SMcares.

Behind this successful event is Ms. Shynne Remendo of Marketing Department at SM, a very hardworking lady who never missed a bit info and an effort I have never seen from a stranger. Now I consider her to be a friend I can count on. Thank you Ms. Shynne. (pronounced as Shane hihihi) Oh, also thank you for designing my event backdrop. Loved it.

To the ever gorgeous host Marylaine Viernes. From the start we've talked at Calvary School I knew a great friendship would come close to it, but I never thought that you will be the one to put me on this level--- level of overwhelming gratitude, level of close to infinite success, level of where I could have a moment I can call my own... Thank you so much for having a kind heart and seeing potential in my writing capabilities. Mary is the first one to buy my book, she even knocked on our gate just to get copies of Innocence in Time and told me that she will give me a book launching event. And now it ended with a huge smile and a huge heart for each and everyone who graced my event. Thank you Sis Mary.

Visit Marylaine's website Mary The Host

Now the fun part.... Thank you to my husband Mhoi and two kids for being with me, this is the first time I went to the mall and sit without them beside me but felt their presence to be my comfort zone when I had nervousness creeping in my veins. I love you so much. Yep, that was fun for me Lol... My husband have not witnessed my tears in front of the audiences, twice, because my dearest son Tristan is an unstoppable kiddo who loves to run everywhere. He is loving SM Center Pasig I guess.

To my Mama and Papa, sister Charie and brother Nelson, thank you so much. You know I need not enumerate how I appreciate simple things and great things coming from you, now I can talk without pausing due to teary eyed moments, I do thank you from the bottom of my heart. Iloveyou

To Mama Yette, sis Enang, Lito, Nonong, sis Mags, baby Rome,  Denise and Joseph, thank you all for your support. muchmuchlove

My relatives from Pateros, Taguig, Makati and Cavite, my close friends Luchie, Flor, Jommel, Weng, Jepot, Froi (yes I saw you glowing at the back hehe), my high school batchmates Grace and Nena Cel (who even came to see me with her crutches) to my new found friends- the bloggers from the north and south (enumerated below with their links), Charyn,  Jons, Ais and Heart and to Mr. Rajan from Books on Demand... a very very big thank you to all.

And to all who wished me good luck on this event on social medias and text messages, thank you thank you.

What is Innocence in Time book all about?

Unaware of the possibilities before that this time would come, that this time would create (hopefully) a brighter writing career for me.

As a full time mom, writing is just a spare-time alternate option for me to do. I just realized that since elementary days I am writing whenever it feels like doing it. Most of it are poems, trying to compose a song, got a tune already and forget everything again. I remember also that I have 2 mini notebooks and fillers in college days where I used to write my songs and ideas. They are all gone. Burnt. :(

No time for sadness here hihihi. I have created what I call my passion.

Creating stories seems to be my best friend for life. I know I have a wide imagination and I think most of you are too. Jotting downs ideas helped me made it into one great story, creating another world out of the known world.

Innocence in Time is a short fictional story with a strong personality. Imagine a 70-pages with 7000plus words in a  5 x 8 book size would have a content of a century. Hmmm exciting?

Here's more, the twists of the story is not what you have ever thought of. Well, let me know if we have the same thinking that at one point you knew who the evil witch was...then we can create a book together. That's a promise.

In this fairy tale continued story, twelve princes from different kingdoms were captured by an angry evil witch. They have changed mankind's history and was forgotten as decades passed by. Until a grown-up Tatiana Rose, seemingly ordinary girl but with a secret past that she never knew. Unlocking each revelation of the past, together with her best friend Blaise and adopted mother Priscilla Faye, Tatiana Rose discovers the truth and with it a challenge of life and death.

Intriguing huh? Find out who the evil witch is and also Tatiana Rose's fate in the end.

Please do buy Innocence in Time. Available in more than 30 online bookstores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Adlibris and my favorite You can get it on paperback, e-book and Kindle copy.

For US, UK and Canada book lovers, Bookwhirl can assist you in buying the book.

For Philippine residents, you may order here Innocence in Time

For book owners of Innocence in Time here in the Philippines, there will be a Book Launching and Signing at SM Center Pasig on April 13, 2014 at 4PM. I am inviting everyone to come and celebrate this wonderful event in my life and indeed the start of a dream coming true. It will be a successful celebration if you will be coming too.
