EJ's 30!

You are not a morning person. For 6 years now I have known this, yet I still wake you up in the most annoying fashion, lol! You'll get used to it (if you haven't yet) like how I got used to you not being a fan of breakfast food. Seriously though, how can you not look forward to bacon and eggs in the morning?!
You are extremely in love with coffee. You can't start your day without it. It's everything for you. You are in a committed relationship with caffeine. 
I never told you this but I'm amazed at how you can instantly go from lovey-dovey to work mode. There's a severity in your eyes when that happens. That kind of intense focus is so riveting. 
You crack jokes when you are nervous or feeling uneasy. It's a defense mechanism that makes you more endearing.
I like how you kiss my hand and gently let it go when you are driving 'coz you obviously need a free hand, River is not automatic. Oh and by the way, River is a great name for a car.

EJ & Kat || Engaged

We're not exactly the most exciting and the most daring couple you'll ever meet. We don't share the same love for a particular sport or hobby. On our rest days, we prefer to just stay at home, stream a movie or two in our most unflattering pambahays while drinking coffee. We exude normalcy...the mundane.

Sounds boring doesn’t it? That’s because these things are ordinary. But maybe they’re ordinary for a reason: because they are what actually matters."
We live for ordinary, day to day moments and experiences, so we chose to highlight that during our pre-nup photo shoot held last April 20, 2018 in Azumi Boutique Hotel. Shout out to our amazing team for turning our…

Canada Trip 2018: Shopify LeadCon and Quebec offsite

Mitch Albom got it right when he said that life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing but you are bound to do something else. I never thought nor imagined that I will be working for an e-commerce platform like Shopify. A year ago, I was with Wyeth catering to doctors and other health professionals. Now here I am managing a team of gurus supporting merchants from all over the world. Life is so dynamic, it's ever changing. Who knows where I'll be and what I'll be doing a year or two from now? 
Before we go any further, let me provide some of the basic terminologies that I'll use:
Shopify Guru:Someone who provides support to Shopify merchants. Often acts as a business coach. Merchant:Business owner who may or may not have a physical store and who wants to sell online. Squad Lead: Team Lead Time Lead: Operations Manager TL;DR: Too long, didn't read, a.k.a. summary.  E-commerce Platform: A software technology solution that allows you to build storefro…
