Diamond Consultant, JBD (Jewellery By Design)
Suburb: Bushland Beach
I’m renowned for: Cooking savoury treats for my work colleagues.
Only a local would know… that the TEN Local News used to be broadcast from the Queen’s Hotel on the Strand.
My Most memorable holiday was: My husband and I went on a cruise to the Islands for our honeymoon and one of the stopovers was at Lifou for half a day. We had to be back by a certain time and time was running out. Our driver forgot to pick us up. Luckily there were people from the cruise who gave us a lift. In hindsight it was quite funny but not at the time.
My favourite day is: Sunday, as this day is our family day for us trio, when we just chill, catch up with the family and mainly spend time together as during the week it’s pretty hectic.
The biggest influence in my life is: My Mum. Being Filipino it’s all about family! My dear mum has strongly influenced my life with our Filipino heritage ensuring that we never forget where we came from and importantly how to cook a tasty Chicken Adobo. Mum taught me to always be thankful for what you have, kind and respectful to all people, and a bit of kindness can change someone’s life for the better. Above all my mum is the kindest and most generous person I know.
Someone famous I met was: Natalie Bassingthwaighte.
My Motto is: Never judge a book by its cover.
