Need to dig out from my audio recordings and notebook for this stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I like to dedicate this post to thank my sponsor, for making it possible for me to attend the event.

(I have been following their site and news since my college time as it has always been my dream to work from home and finally be with my kids when I finally becomes a mom..yep...that dream started even while I am still single and in college ;)..pray that I'll be able to fulfill my dream with a sustainable income soon!)

They have also set up the booth for Salaam Wanita Basket(check picture below) during the event.

Note: Salaam Wanita believes that empowering women with micro-business skills can go a long way to transform any woman into a confident and economically empowered innovator. Check out more about their Eco basket at their site here. are South East Asia's only community network that promotes working from home, teleworking and the running of SOHO businesses through the use of information and communications technology. Their e-community promotes self-help, business partnerships and entrepreneurship development for those who want to balance work and home life. Their social profit is derived from a pro-poor project focusing on eco-baskets production and service provision to empower women to embark on social-economic self-reliance.

Quoted from homepage.

Do check out their site and perhaps you can do your bit to support this good cause whether by donating your unwanted magazines or order their Eco-basket!
