    Marie Claire Lim Moore, a Filipina-Canadian-American banker, speaker and author of the Amazon.com bestseller Don’t Forget the Soap (And Other Reminders from My Fabulous Filipina Mother) is back with her new book.

    Titled Don’t Forget the Parsley (And More from My Positively Filipino Family), the book will be launched with a signing event on February 15 at Fully Booked in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

    Lim Moore passionately promotes career-family balance through her sought-after talks, as well as her writing. In her books, she takes the readers along her family’s journey around the world, starting with her parents’ migration from the Philippines, to her current experiences living abroad with her husband and children.

    Her titles had been coined from a “happy family handbook” to a “great big hug in a book,” but the author reveals that wasn’t on purpose.

    She explains, “There are a number of books like The Happiness Project [Gretchen Rubin] or Stumbling on Happiness [Daniel Gilbert] that methodically try to measure and dissect happiness. I just wanted to share stories about my family,” the author explained.

    Lim Moore is regularly ranked among leaders in the Asian and Filipino-American professional community, and her experiences have been documented in The New York Times, USA Today, Smart Parenting, and People Asia. In 2014, she received the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Award that recognizes Filipina Women who are influencing the face of leadership in the global workplace.

    Here are reviews from readers of Don’t Forget the Parsley (And More from My Positively Filipino Family):

    “If you have a family you love (or would like to learn to love evenmore), are a parent looking for ways to raise a happier household, a Filipina or immigrant looking for a relatable and funny read, or just a human being who wants to make small, impactful changes on how fully you live each moment—run out and buy this book. Run, don’t walk,” Miro Frances Capilia, former reporter, CNN Philippines

    “Don’t Forget the Parsley is a metaphor we should all live by, to continue to see and add color to all the events of our lives,” Claudia Chan, CEO of SHE Global Media and Entrepreneur contributor

    “A gentle guide for those who want to have it all in their professional and family life,” Kellie Martin, former ER and Life Goes On actress and author of Madam: A Novel of New Orleans

    “A proper sequel to best-seller Don’t Forget the Soap, Don’t Forget the Parsley is another light read you can finish in one sitting—not because it’s a short memoir, but because you won’t be able to put it down until the last page,” Kristen Capili, founder of Heart School.

    Don’t Forget the Parsley is now available on Amazon.com through bit.ly/dftp-amazon.
