For many, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a baptism of fire; a baptism into the churches of survival, resilience, and patience. It brought unprecedented times for both businesses and individuals, forcing almost everything and everyone to manage all aspects of living from a single base—home.

If you saw that viral post about how other countries are reacting to the pandemic, then you were probably in stitches when it came down to the Philippines because it was all about the online selling of ube pandesal, sushi bake, chocolate chip cookies, face masks, alcohol and more. Trust Filipinos to turn a restrictive situation into something productive and profitable.
