Denise Aquino has two guilty pleasures when it comes to food: sushi bake and instant pancit canton.
She is the owner of Tokyo Posh, the country’s pioneer hair extensions brand. They recently introduced Hair Shield, an alcohol- and paraben-free antibacterial hair sanitizer that promises to kill 99.9 percent of germs while moisturizing your locks.
While Aquino, 36, is all about hair at work, at home, this mom and wife is all about family.
In this week’s Food Slambook, she gives us a peek into her kitchen.
