Q&A (Questions from Selina Beck)

1.Β  What inspired you to create a blog? My passion to learn, document and share ideas to other people inspired me to blog. I used to write for myself as an exercise to communicate my thoughts where I started out documenting my experiences, realizations of life and dreams. It has now evolved to something other people can experience and use, hoping they enjoy as much as I have enjoyed sharing on Dolce Vita.

2. If you could have any career what would it be? At this point in my life, I have always wondered about 3 things actually and I would like to consider them as a career. First, I’ve always wanted to build my own foundation with the advocacy of improving education starting in the Philippines. In high school and university, I always involved myself in such activities such as teaching and renovating classrooms. I’m hoping to bring it back to my life as I have already started working. Second, I have always thought about traveling and planning trips for other people who don’t have the passion for planning. Third, I have realized that if there is something I can read and do all day, it is that I can read other blogs and share stuff on my blog.

3. What is one thing you can’t live without? I cannot live without my pictures and videos. If there are any files that I really protect and create triple back up for, these are photos and videos that I have collected for more than 10 years already. I tend to forget details that’s why I spend a lot of time documenting and making these portfolios or reports to remind me.

4. What is your biggest pet peeve? My biggest pet peeves are traffic violators and hypocrites.

5. Favorite dessert? My favorite dessert is moist chocolate cake that has some chips or fries on the side! Classic and severely unhealthy.

6. Dream car? My dream car is an SUV that I can take on long road trips that can save me from the flood and I can use to speed!

7. What products or clothing are on your β€œwish list” for spring? I’m looking for tops with unique surprise in the design or cut (gorgeous shape, backless, etc.)

8. What is your favorite season? There aren’t any seasons here in the Philippines but I enjoy the cool months where I get to shiver a bit at some point during the day. I pray for drought and destructive typhoons to spare my country.

9. Any hobbies?Β My hobbies right now are blogging, jogging, swimming and yoga.

10. Do you have any siblings? I have three wonderful siblings who make me happy and crazy at the same time!
