Let me share with you something personal about my life. As an Asian, I was brought up in a family that at a very young age you need to know everything about the family businesses. That’s also one of the reasons I have not visited the Philippines for almost 5 years now, as much as I miss the Philippines but I didn’t want to interfere with my family’s businesses and I wanted to have my own career and own company.
I was trained by my late mommy Fhel and Grand Ma ( Lola Doray) to have my own vision and business in the future. I am now living it by handling my own brand and also helping other brands by better storytelling through visuals and narrative.
I used to hate when people got me cologne for my birthday. I didn’t want to seem ungrateful but you know how it is. Smelling like something is a really personal thing, and there are certain scents you like and others you can’t stand. I HATE anything “musk,” I don’t like to smell too “manly,” and I shy away from things that are too strong or “obvious.”
One of the first things I like to do when I have a boyfriend is figure out how he likes to smell. It’s not something you ask right away but I think you figure it out over time if you’re paying attention. You can tell what he likes because you’ll find the bottles laying about or you’ll smell him or maybe you’ll even ask him what he’s into.
“You smell nice,” you’ll say flirtatiously. And even if it’s not a scent you’d ever wear it smells so sexy on him, doesn’t it?
A guy who smells nice is like 10,000 percent hotter than a guy who is just plain hot. When you roll up to kiss him you stare into his eyes and focus on his lips, and every time he moves you get a whiff of his smell. And if you really like this guy every time you smell him or anything he’s wearing you’ll be reminded of him.
for now, I only like to wear three colognes from Hermes, but the one I love the most, and the one I wear the most often, is “Osmanthe Yunnan.” I’d splash it on my handbag, on all my coats and scarves in addition to wearing it on most days.
When someone approaches you wearing a fragrance you really like, or if they smell particularly powerful, you’ll notice them straight away. They linger.
Every bottle of “Osmanthe Yunnan” comes with a tiny bottle you can carry around with you. I’d always go through the smaller bottle first. And because you can carry it with you everywhere you can constantly reapply it throughout the day for maximum impact.
A signature scent is your way of leaving a mark everywhere you go.
Hermès has become my signature, and sort of statement most especially when I’m traveling and do special meetings.

Slaying’s never been an easy task, especially when you’re juggling your Personal, Work and Fierce life all at the same time. I firmly believe that having the guts along with a drive to execute everything flawlessly requires a lot of courage, discipline, and practice!!! And I mean A LOT of practice, even though sometimes failure is part and parcel of the whole process. Because from failure you get to learn how not to allow yourself to fail again the next time.
Sometimes I feel terribly exhausted with this whole juggling act. But then, I always try to look at the brighter side of things and it brings it all back into perspective for me especially in context to why it is that I am doing all of this in the first place. It all boils down to the fact that I absolutely love what I do and I am so passionate about it.
A lot of people don’t actually understand the word Slay. They tend to overreact whenever they hear me say it. But the truth of the matter is, for me, the word Slay is my expression. An expression or another term for, “boost your confidence” or “you can do it no matter what!”. This is how I always try to support and boost the confidence of those around me.
Fierce Tip: Whenever you feel down, always look in the mirror and envision what you are most passionate about. Ask yourself, “What drives you to be who you want to be? What makes you do what you want to do and achieve? And most of all, what is it that makes you the happiest about it all?”.
You have got to cut through the noise by just being YOU! By being yourself in this world full of non-stop noise on social media. If you’re feeling down or having a bad day, just stop. Take a break. A break which consists of staying away from all things toxic. Take a digital detox! Trust me when I tell you, I do it all the time. It’s the best thing you can do for your mental peace.
Love yourself Fierce!
A lot of you might not know that I have a day job. I am not a full-time Fashion Curator and Content Creator. I work for Mr. H Creative Agency as a Social Media Manager. I enjoy dabbling in a wide array of fields while maintaining my professionalism at work. Because, for me, my work ethic holds a lot of importance. And as part of that work ethic, I make it a point to always be well dressed at work because I usually have events and meetings to attend after working hours.
There are some things I make sure I don’t wear to work. I aim to keep my look formal, yet classic. Working with pieces that make me look well polished whenever I have meetings with my clients. I like to keep my hair tied up in a clean sleek ponytail. With just a light brush on my brows to complete my fierce look. And I always make it a point to keep extra clothes in my Burberry Bag before I leave for work. Because you never know when you might need to change up a look! Sometimes I wear extra layers inside, especially nowadays since it’s rather cold in Dubai so that I can easily pull it off after work if necessary.
Fierce Tip: Whenever you go to work don’t go overboard with your look! Always make sure to keep it polished, classic and aim for tailored pieces. A good coat in your wardrobe can be a magically transformative piece especially if you have no time to change and you want to go from a day to night look.
Keep yourself well prepared at all times whenever you step out! Your look speaks leaps and bounds about you and about how well prepared you are in life.
