It is said that if your job is something you love, you don't end up working a single hour of your life (or something along that line). The wife and I decided to make an investment in a business established by a close friend and it is something we do love - chocolates. Here is the link to the website:
There is also a Facebook page that documents the activities that includes educating and training farmers about growing cacao. Here are a few photos from the page:
|The chocolates are now available but in Dubai where our partners are based and selling these at the weekend bazaars.|

We look forwards to this business growing and helping get attention for Philippine chocolates and cacao. I like to think that this is not it competition with the established brands but more an effort combining to make this industry prosper. It is definitely something we'd love to see grow along with our daughter who's also developed a liking for chocolates.
Happy New Year to all!-
