Blessings amid challenges

2015 has been a year filled with challenges for me and my family, but I’m grateful for every blessing, big and small, that we’ve also received. For one, I’m happy to be one of the judges of the Mob-Ex Awards 2016 Singapore.


Glad to see mobile marketing really taking off in Asia! Here’s the full roster of judges.

Here’s to a better 2016 for all of us! Cheers!

Happy 14th Birthday, Sam!

Happy 14th Birthday to the World’s Best Daughter, Samantha Nicole Alarilla!


Stay awesome, smart, kind, beautiful, talented, witty, creative, and loving. Embrace every facet of your personality, including scientist, artist, writer, geek, book lover, Marvel fangirl, anime otaku, and now Star Wars fan!

Be true to yourself. You are perfect the way you are.

I’ve loved you even before you were born, and I promised myself that I would do everything to become the best dad I could be, give you all the love you deserve, and help you make all your dreams come true.

Every day, I love you even more and get to know you even more.

Never let anyone make you feel bad about who you are, or make you think you don’t deserve happiness, because you are perfect the way you are.

Always remember that Mommy and Daddy love you so much!

Happy Birthday, Sam! May the Force be with you!
