- Now that money is not a problem, Joel shares how they celebrate Christmas now
According to Push ABS-CBN, fragrance mogul Joel Cruz shared a glimpse of his home and Christmas decors.
His busy schedule didn't keep him from putting up the best Christmas decor at home.
Joel shared that even as a kid he loves to decorate their home even with just a small amount of money.
"Noong bata ako, hindi naman ako gaanong may pera na kapag ako mag-design ng Christmas decoration. Kailangan humingi pa ako ng pera sa mother ko so budget talaga. Ang kinagandahan lang noon natural na artistic ako. Kahit na ordinary lang ang decorations namin napapabongga ko kahit papaano."
According to Joel, his wish was to have a tall and beautiful Christmas tree.
"Ewan ko ba kung bakit ako palagi nagco-compare sa malalaking mga bahay, sa mga mayayaman talaga yung ganun. Siguro example nalang sa Christmas tree gusto ko na talaga dati pa na mataas at maganda ang Christmas tree namin. Kaya ngayon na nagkaroon na ako, talagang gusto ko dapat laging maganda ang Christmas tree ko," Joel explained.
He shared that even if they had a simple Christmas decor before he made sure that they are happy together.
"Mayroon na akong nakakatulong ngayon kasi medyo matrabaho na ang pag-aayos talaga. Pero dati talagang ako lang lahat pero happy ako noon kahit na simple lang," he said.
"Ibang-iba ang pakiramdam, masaya, excited. Marami akong tao na napapasaya. Pag masaya kasi ang ibang tao doon nag-start yung happiness ko."
"Siyempre yung maka-bonding mo ang family, magkaka-sama kayo. Ang preparations ko medyo bongga talaga. Gusto ko maraming food, magsisimba kami buo ang pamilya, may mga bagong damit pero ang higit sa lahat na importante at pinakamasaya yung magkakasama kaming pamilya na pupunta ng simbahan. Kaya definitely pasko ang pinaka paborito kong panahon sa buong taon," he shared.
Joel Cruz is a graduate from University of Santo Tomas and took up Psychology.
However, he didn't pursue a medical career and followed his passion of doing business.
In 1999, he started to do his research on producing world-class perfumes at reasonable prices and soon he found himself putting up his first kiosk at Ever Gotesco Central and sold almost P25,000 a day.
Now, his fragrance business called Aficionado is well-established and still growing.
