About the Blog

Sometimes, One Valenzuela would just pop out a question to a fellow Valenzuelano during a joy ride break.  

Salamat po sa inyong pagbisita sa blog! (Thank you for visiting the blog!)
One Valenzuela’s main objective is to promote the various activities and places in Valenzuela City, Philippines. At times, the blog features sites outside the city which also include details on how Valenzuelanos can reach them. This blog is maintained as the author’s tribute to her hometown. Ultimately, by discovering more about the city, she also learns more about her identity as a Valenzuelana.  

With this, the author was given recognition by the City Government of Valenzuela at the 150th birth anniversary of Dr. Pio Valenzuela and was awarded with the 2019 Gawad Dr. Pio Valenzuela in the area of Social Media. It is the highest award given by the local LGU. 
Ang Gawad pong ito ay nagsisilbing paalala po sakin, sa ating lahat, upang maghanap ng layunin na mas malaki pa sa ating sarili na siyang magbibigay ng mas malalim na kabuluhan sa ating buhay... Maraming salamat po sa mga kapwa ko Valenzuelano, sa inyong mainit na pagtanggap. (Read Speech of Acceptance here).
Posts. The author is also given an alias, "Happy Feet" (after that sweet penguin in the famous movie), because she loves to check out places she has not been to. Admittedly, she has visited a number of spots outside Valenzuela but has not explored what her city of origin has to offer. Realizing it soon enough, she made a promise to go around the various barangays in the city to know more about her roots, the people, and the culture which made Valenzuela a unique and lovable city to live in. 

Through time, she eventually saw that we indeed need to support local in our own little ways - an advocacy where we help our fellow Valenzuela City residents (i.e. local entrepreneurs) grow: #buylocal, #eatlocal, and #uselocal!

Unless otherwise stated, One Valenzuela finances her escapades and (mis)adventures with her own hard-earned money.
Giveaways. The author sets up giveaway promotions to say “Thank you!” to the visitors of the blog who has shown steady support through time. One Valenzuela will gladly host contests and giveaways for the benefit of the blog readers.

Year-End Foodie Giveaway!

Invitations. One Valenzuela warmly welcomes invitations to events and activities as long as (1) these meet the objectives of the blog and (2) that these fit her daily schedule (she works full time and studies part-time). 

One Valenzuela talked about her experiences as a #hungryvalenzuelano blogger.
One Valenzuela was invited by SM Valenzuela for their Malabon Pancit Festival.
Support the Mission. The author was able to maintain this blog through her monthly paycheck and through the help of some very kind friends who lend her their precious time and gadgets. Exploring the blog, you will see how it has evolved, including the quality of the photos and videos. By being a sponsor of the One Valenzuela blog, you help the author pay for the transportation expenses, blog domain registration, and the internet connection fees that come with maintaining this blog. Sponsors who would like to support the One Valenzuela blog may contact the author through e-mail. Alternatively, you may donate using PayPal below. 

The author hopes to better represent people and establishments in the city, thus any help (i.e. sponsorships for needed devices) will be warmly appreciated. As of the moment, she is currently saving up to acquire updated devices and attend more workshops which will help in showing how great it is to be a Valenzuelano. It's a never-ending work-in-progress.

Again and again, special thanks po for good friends who lent her gadgets from time to time. Salamat po, mga bes!

Gratitude Section. One Valenzuela would like to thank a few fellow Valenzuelanos who have been very supportive of the mission. Now that the author is also exploring video blogging to tell more stories (and to be better in telling stories), there is already the need to upgrade on skills, gadgets, and equipment. She would like to acknowledge the receipt of the following:

Boya Microphone - Anonymous
Zhiyun Smooth 4 Stabilizer - Anonymous  

Be assured that the author will deliver more stories the best way possible. Maraming salamat po muli!

The author would also like to thank Australia Harvest for sponsoring several race kits in 2018 and 2019. And yes, One Valenzuela buys and eats AH oatmeal. 

Collaborations. How can my product/restaurant/spot be featured in the blog? Well, that is the common question that the author would receive. Since the tagline of the blog is "Living and Loving Valenzuela City...", she would feature spots, products, and dining places which she has tried and are worth recommending to others, especially to her fellow city residents. She prefers eatsploring within the city to support local entrepreneurs. The author also accepts invites to establishments during her free time. Warmest thanks po to establishments which invite One Valenzuela po. 

Advertisements. The blog has progressively received page views from its inception and it is growing through time. This blog accepts relevant advertisements at its sidebar from establishments within and around the city. Such will help in the maintenance and expenses of the blog.
