I’m Katrina from the Philippines. I grew up in Manila and lived a bit in Singapore after my ANIMO days. Later on, I decided to pursue my postgraduate studies in London and spent over six wonderful years of my life in that amazing city. Presently, I am based in the sunny part of Europe, South of France with my husband.
I am born to travel and been to a lot of places around the globe. I also love good food – whether it’s dining out or home cooking, healthy stuff, fashion, arts, meeting people and all things in between. Holistic it is! La vie est une incroyable journée (life is an amazing journey) so I’ve started this personal blog last November 2012 aspiring to inspire readers. KATSCAPADES is a word play on Katrina’s escapades.
From my previous four-year-stint as a Brand Marketing Manager for a telco company in London, a year as the PR & Marketing Head in Europe for a real estate developer, I am currently working at ABS-CBN Europe Ltd as Territory Sales & Distribution Head for select countries in Europe (also acting as Kapamilya Host during ABS-CBN events in the region).
Aside from that, I am a freelance lifestyle writer and model. I’ve contributed as one of the researchers and copywriters of Juan in EU’s magazine debut featuring 100 Inspiring Stories of Filipinos in Europe (and there’s another one coming up! please watch out for that), a monthly columnist for OFWorld Newspaper in France, regular travel and health contributor for Snoochie Boochies (UK lifestyle site) and have worked with a few editorials and fashion gigs in the Philippines, UK and France. I’m a Believer – I love Jesus and I’m happy to share what’s life like having a personal relationship with Him. Lemme not forget, I’m also a nutritionist, chef and marathon champion wanna be! I still have a lot to tick in my bucket list – the world is my oyster!
If you would like to get in touch with some questions, you’re up for a collaboration or simply you’d like to drop by and say hello, I would love to hear from you!
