My Blog Through The Years

By Glenda Rondo - 8:25:00 AM

This is our story.

On a beautiful day of August 13, 1986, across the field in a beautiful province of Nueva Vizcaya, I was born.

Growing up I’ve always been fascinated by advertising, magazines and fashion that I always wanted to take up Bachelor of Science in Advertising. But the only college offering that course during that time was College of St Benilde, La Salle. I gave up on the idea that my parents had to sell this little portion of land we own to pay for my tuition fees and settled on the truth that we will never be able to afford it.
Fast-forward to 2017.
Life has a funny way of helping you chased after your dreams. I started the first three years of my young career working as an Accountant in an advertising company in Makati. I’ve worked with the few creatives in the industry, igniting what have been (supposedly) the focus of my entire teenage years but money put it on the sideline. And that’s when I realized, I’ll go cross-country pursuit of my childhood dream. I wanted to become a writer.
During that time, I started my blog “expatpetitemom” as a weekend hobby. And after a few months, a Thailand fashion site Zalora discovered my blog and reached out to me for a year long collaboration. Then an Asian budget airlines “Airasia” follow suit sponsoring us a 3-days-2-nights free trip to an expensive city of Singapore. I’m always thankful for these brand and more international store reaching out to me, for the confidence they always had.
Two years later, my husband and I welcomed our tiny little miracle, our greatest blessing Chloe. And this blog grew up along with my kid. And we will always be moving forward and up with these babies, all the days of our lives.
Thanks a lot for reading. Please feel free to email me at riveraglendulay@gmail.com or find me at www.instagram.com/expatpetitemom.
