I am jack of all trades – I am a beauty and lifestyle blogger from Manila, entrepreneur/owner of Paradigm Skin, beauty editor and writer at Beauty Insider Singapore, executive assistant to a Consul General based in Melbourne, Australia.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
I don’t believe in having one single achievement in life. There are so many great things an individual can do over his lifetime and it is impossible to just pick one. The feeling of being proud over an accomplishment changes over time, I believe. There’s always new set of goals to reach!
At this point in my life, though, I would say having finished a double major degree, having built a career apart from my family’s businesses, and having moved out without any financial support but my own, and having curated Paradigm Skin together with my few trusted friends are some pretty big accomplishments for me.
How is a typical day like for yourself to juggle everything you do?
My day is just like any other young professionals’. A big chunk of day is allotted for work, the rest are allotted for my personal and social wellbeing, like painting, writing, indulging myself to a pampering bathe and skincare routine.
Is there something in life you can’t get enough of?
There are a lot I can’t get enough of – writing, painting, skincare, and FOOD!
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
I would say I’m a 9. I’m pretty adventurous. I enjoy discovering new dishes!
What quotes or mottos do you like to use?
“Semper Ad Meliora”… I’ve always had this Latin phrase stuck in my head. It means “always on to better things”. I don’t use it on a daily basis but it has always been in my mind. In fact, I am having it tattooed on my skin very soon!
If you could meet anyone past or present, who will it be?
I would choose someone in the present! Do not wish to meet people in the past, they have nothing new to bring. Haha!
It would be Oprah for me. Her advocacies are mine too. It would be great to learn from her!
What is a funny or lame attempt a guy has tried to know you?
DMs. In this day and age, men have become unacceptably lazy and lousy. They think sliding through women’s DMs are cute and cool. It’s not. Whatever happened to chivalry?
It is a pleasure to feature you Chessica. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy isn’t always about one’s size or looks. To me, it has always been about the mind and personality. Is the person still attractive when he speaks? Can he keep a good conversation? Does he make sense? Is he confident and not boastful? It’s a state of mind, how you carry yourself and most importantly, how you treat others.
