By the way, I never got to ask you before where exactly is the address of your childhood home in Tondo, Manila?It’s at 500 Moriones Street corner Santa Maria Street, Tondo, Manila. It’s near the North Harbor. I recently bought this property — at three years to pay terms —with a lot area of 270 square meters. It is two stories with a mezzanine. When I was a child, seven families were renting there. Our family was on the top floor; there were three families living there on the top floor.Your “rags-to-riches” life story is similar to that Andrew Tan’s; he told me his family used to rent an apartment tenement in Hong Kong shared with five other families when he was a kid. Your success secrets or tips?Be persistent. Continue improving what you’re doing. Focus. Work hard. Overcome crisis with guts and determination. My worst crisis as an entrepreneur was the 1997 to 1998 period. I persevered because I had no choice, sanay na ako sa bakbakan I’m used to fighting for survival — it’s either you end up with suicide, a heart attack or you will make it.
