For the love of the written word

About Me

Me
Writing is my greatest love since I discovered it in grade school.  I am currently on hiatus from my little business as indie Publisher of RASMB Publications which creates and sells ebooks.  When I am not busy attending to regular 9-to-5 duties (yes, I have a regular day job!),  I love reading and telling stories to children to village children.   Mother didn’t think creative writing was a good enough course, so I went on to study Political Science and Anthropology from the University of the Philippines Baguio and later on a law degree from the University of the East.

When I’m not writing stories or reading (and watching feel-good movies on most evenings), I do consultancy work in social media. Aside from being an active Facebook, Twitter and Instagram user, I blog regularly with topics on traveling (Musings of A Village Rat), househelpers and nannies (Get A New Nanny), Catholic faith (Faithful and True Catholic), and this everything else (this blog!).

Can’t get enough of the studying bug, I finished my MBA from the Ateneo de Manila Graduate School of Business in 2012.  I am currently pursuing my Doctor of Communications degree at the University of the Philippines (Open University).

  1. Hi
    I am from Singapore but based in Makati for work.
    I saw your blog about DComm distance learning program.
    I am very interested to know more about it.
    Do you mind to drop me an email at limshujian@gmail.com?

    I have some questions about your experience in the DComm program.

  2. Hello!

    I’m currently a double masters student, 1 is information systems from UPOU. Although it is still a long shot I would also want to continue with DCOMM in the future.

    Would like to know about your experiences as well.

    • Hello. Like you, I was also a double masters graduate during college. DCOMM is a very interesting course especially if you like communications, particularly development communications. DCOMM is done online, and you are expected to participate and contribute to online discussions. Most of the professors just step back and let the students do the sharing and discussions. There are always reports to do in addition to online discussions. What is good about it is that you manage your own time without the rigors of classroom instruction, but it can be a balancing act. If distance learning is your thing then go for it. Goodluck!
