Jannette Velasco learned the ropes of creating authentic and tasty Filipino desserts from her mother, Agnes de Joya, when the latter opened for business in 1990 at National City, CA. Together with her husband, Ryan Velasco, Jannette moved from the San Diego area so they could share their love and passion for “Filipino Desserts Plus.” This dessert shop, located at Seasons Marketplace at Landess, specializes in Party Trays. Jannette says that customers can drop in or call them. For orders, email Jannette for a menu at [email protected]

Seasons Marketplace at Landess in Milpitas, California opened its doors for business on May 27, 2010. Filipino community leaders such as then-National Chair of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) Greg B. Macabenta and NaFFAA Region 8 (Northern CA) Santa Clara County Chair, Ben Menor helped gather the community to celebrate the opening of the first “Filipino-centric” mall in the United States. NaFFAA Region 8 is a supportive community partner of Seasons Marketplace at Landess.

“Building community” at Seasons Marketplace at Landess meant introducing the Bay Area’s Filipino community to this beautifully-designed mall. For instance, anchor tenant Seafood City provides a huge variety of ethnic ingredients that are distinctively Asian while showcasing a fresh assortment of seafood for healthy, heart-smart cuisine.
GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV are media partners of NaFFAA through its media sponsorship of the E-2010: 9th NaFFAA Empowerment Conference on November 19-21, 2010. It is through this relationship that more public relations and community relations efforts are being done through social media and digital public relations (engaging GMA Pinoy TV’s public relations consultant, Lorna Dietz, a veteran online public relations practitioner since 1996) in bringing attention to this mall. Supporting Ben Menor, Seasons Marketplace at Landess’s community developer, and Gabrielle “Girly” Ramos, Seasons Marketplace at Landess’s Merchant Relations and Marketing Support started with the Community Hall at Seasons in October 2010. The public relations activities have since expanded into highlighting the Merchants at Seasons Marketplace at Landess.
These videos are produced by Lorna Dietz for GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV as part of their “community building” focus worldwide.
