Have faith in your journey. Everything had to happen exactly as it did to get you where you’re going next. – Mandy Hale
I have been wanting to make a post about our move to Cebu but couldn’t find the time to gather my thoughts and put it online, until today.
Everything is still blurry.
We have lived a decent life in Cavite, not grand and not in poverty either. My kids didn’t have everything but we made sure that their needs were met. Then the offer to relocate to Cebu came and we just have to grab it so *poof* we were in Cebu in 3 months!
Marcelle and I took the plunge. We left Luzon with nothing but our baking and cake decorating supplies, our small oven, a few clothes. Read: 2 large boxes and 5 bags. We technically started with TONS of loans and nothing in our pocket. But we are positive, we had no choice but to be positive about the outcome. After all, we both wanted to make it big, didn’t we?
This, again, is another leap of faith.
We are forever grateful to our families in Cebu who helped us from the very start: my cousin Shine and her husband Charles, Tito Chito and Tita Elvie and of course, Graziela. They ensured that our move was smooth and stress-free. Of course, the move wouldn’t be possible without the push and help from our families in Luzon.
So what are we doing here?
We will still be making cakes – helping families and individuals create memories through our cakes. I firmly believe that we are destined to do this. This is where we are good at, so why leave it?
November 8, 2014 – we opened our Project Happiness Bakehouse office in Arcada 5, Highway Tipolo, Mandaue City.
In less than a month, we already have orders! God is soooo good! Here are some of them:
How we are coping
No one said that it’s going to be easy. I admit that it’s damn hard. But we have to maintain positive vibes in our hearts and mind for this whole thing to work. Without the positive outlook in life, all our efforts will eventually go down the drain.
We bring back the glory to God, for without His grace, we are nothing. We survive each day with His grace and we can conquer all these challenges with His help.
God has been working wonders through family and friends who serve as His instrument to send His graces. Maraming, maraming salamat. We can repay you in time.
