Things that bring us joy amid the pandemic


THE COVID-19 crisis has definitely turned a lot of lives upside down. A lot were stuck at home. Thankfully, one of our best aspects as Filipinos is to always find a silver lining in everything we face.

For Katrina, a content manager in her 30s who got stuck in her condo unit, said that involved getting into hobbies she never would have expected she would enjoy doing before.

For me, it’s baking. I was surprised because I used to be really bad in the kitchen, but after watching some YouTube videos, I got inspired. I bought a mini electric oven and just got into it.

It gives me the break that I need,” shared Gladys, a mother of one and a part-time copywriter. “I actually started my own business. I started with cookies, but now I have also been making breads and cakes. It turned out to be another source of income for me, too,” she added.

There’s a lot of trial and error, but the success of baking is all about using the right ingredients. I love using the flour from Joy of Baking because they are beginner-friendly and is of good quality,” said Gladys.

Joy of Baking is a notable brand of Agri Pacific Corporation, under the Rebisco Group of Companies. Since starting in 2015, it has been providing innovative flour products in the market using advanced Swiss and German milling technology.
