In celebration of Teresita “Aunty Terry” Sajonia’s laudable virtues, Blend 45 Kapeng Pinoy, through its Gising Pinoy campaign awarded her during a ceremony held at Hong Kong Kitchen,Robinsons Place Iloilo last March 19, 2014.
Blend 45 turned over P25,000.00 worth of URC products and P25,000.00 worth of Robinsons gift certificates to Aunty Terry.
“We salute Aunty Terry for exemplifying true Filipino values” says Edwin Totanes, URC VP & Marketing Group Head. With the tagline “Ginigising ang masarap at mabuti sa Pinoy”, Blend 45’s Gising Pinoy Campaign aims to awaken and recognize the innate goodness in every Filipino. It highlights the positive values that everyday Filipinos exhibit. “She reflects passion, determination and great sense of being Maalaga,” he adds.
Aunty Terry worked for the Chen family in Singapore during the early 1990s. Her distinct care inspired Ilo Ilo, a film directed by Anthony Chen – one of the boys she took care of in Singapore. The heartfelt masterpiece not only garnered recognition all over the world, but also won the Caméra d’Or in the recently concluded Cannes Film Festival 2013.
