Filipinos are one of the most resilient people in the world, facing lifes challenges with optimism, faith and a can-do attitude. At Cebuana Lhuillier, we believe that this should be recognized and encouraged at all times, said Jean Henri Lhuillier, Cebuana Lhuillier president & CEO.

It is only fitting that we reach the final stages of the search this month  to coincide with the International Day of Happiness on March 20, as declared by the United Nations to recognize happiness as a fundamental human goal. Similarly, we at Cebuana Lhuillier believe that an inclusive and well-balanced approach to economic growth is a means to promote the happiness and well-being of every person,” Lhuillier adds.

For its efforts, the Search for the Happiest Pinoy has received recognitions from the International Business Awards, 48th Anvil Awards, Philippine Quill Awards, Panata Awards, and the Golden Bridge Awards.

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!
