M&S x Tobi Ang: On Fatherhood, Work & Style

Image
What’s keeping 36 year-old Tobi Ang says lately is learning to be a good father to his two young girls, Daniella (2.5y.o.) and Natalia (10 months) and "father" and leader of The Angcore Motor Group, where he sits as vice-president and COO.

“My day always starts waking up and spending time with my girls. The girls, Michelle, my wife, and our two girls are early risers, so I get to spend some quality family time with them before heading to the office,” shares Tobi.
We caught up with Tobi and his family in their lovely home. Over coffee, the young dad shared how he manages his time between being a dad, husband, and a businessman.
And since we can confidently say he is one of Davao’s well-dressed young men, we wanted to find out how his manner of dressing has changed from being single to becoming a dad.
What’s family time like?



“Tobi likes to cook. Steak is his specialty,” said Michelle. On Tobi: M&S Collection pure linen polo over slim fit shirt & pure cotton chino shorts. …

The New Mango Radio 102.7fm

Image
Mango Radio 102.7fm,  a Faith-based talk and Christian music radio station in Davao is back on air. With its recent rebranding, Mango Radio now broadcasts to a  more larger and wider audience adding up more musical and talk programs.

Nine years ago, when a young Korean Pastor Hong Soon Kyo also known as Pastor Mike, a music lover himself used his knowledge in radio broadcasting to Communicate the Lord's gospel to the people in Mindanao. He believed that radio broadcasting knows no boundaries. Luckily, his prayers were answered when Pastor Mike and his Davaoeno team of radio enthusiasts received an invitation to block time over UR97fm Davao, UR 105fm Cebu and UE 103.5 Zamboanga.


The team then called Mango Radio. Why Mango? Because just like this popular fruit, Pastor Mike and his team wanted the Lord's gospel to be sweetly and freely available and accessible to all Filipinos. The Mango Radio team started to grow big, aired for longer hours playing  Christian Contemporary Music…

Marks & Spencer and Joanna Lizares-Co on Motherhood & Mindfulness

Image
If only you call her a Super Woman – a successful career, a responsible daughter and a sister, and above all, a wife and a mother. She takes these with all her heart, without complaining, even as she needs to haggle from Davao to Cebu City from where she originally comes from. It was in 2002 when Yoga instructor Joanna Christina Lizares-Co, 46, married Dabawenyo businessman Zosimo Co. She moved to Davao City in the same year and since then, Joanna has considered the city as her second home. The couple is blessed with two beautiful girls – Gianna Simone, 12, and Simmina Christina, 9.


But a loving daughter that she is, she has remained in close touch with her family in Cebu even if it means regular visits to her father and siblings. On the average, she and her family travel to her hometown three times a year to bond with her brother and sister and friends. Her father passed away last December. “I moved to Davao in 2002 and when I went home to Cebu, my time centered on my dad. Whenever my da…

Fret not, because I found an ideal gift idea for moms that is really affordable and may genuinely last forever!





Last Tuesday,  I was lucky to be one mommy bloggers who were invited to a mini succulent planting workshop by Botanophilic Davao in partnership with Trust Home Depot. The Say it with Succulent Pop Up Shop basically taught us some tips on how to plant, propagate and grow succulents. Surprisingly, I find it easy and fun to get addicted to. It is so relaxing.You just have to love greens and I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

So here's what happened during the workshop.
