Monnick Puriño-Cruz has always believed that everyone has been given gifts from Above. Knowing this, it has been her life long fulfillment to discover these gifts and talents. Raised in Lupao, Nueva Ecija, youngest of three siblings, at an early age, has developed the passion for cooking, handcrafting, marketing and homekeeping. Her father, a self built construction, architecture, fine arts and interior design icon in the ‘50s and ‘60s and a notable entertainer, has taught her the values of camaraderie and social networking, naturally has passed his artistic tough to her; her mother, a catholic church catechist and homemaker, taught her the basics of cooking, baking and most importantly, the innate hunger to discover her God-given talents and offer the fruits of them back to our Creator. While earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration major in marketing at New Era College (now a university), Monnick worked as a pizza parlor attendant to pay tuition. She married at the age of 26 years and has practically done all the organizing for her wedding. Being the hands-on person, she has prepared, organized and captured priceless moments of all her life’s important events from her wedding to celebrating the first three birthdays of her daughter.
