Motherhood is a journey that’s full of challenges and joys. For Ms. Liway Alba, it was a journey that took a bit longer to start due to a high-risk pregnancy at the age of 36. Despite the obstacles, Liway explored unconventional ways, several attempts at becoming a mother and was blessed with two lovely daughters, now ages 11 and 9.
Liway has been in the casino industry for almost 30 years. She started in Subic Bay then moved to other countries such as Thailand, South Africa, Laos, Cambodia, Macau and Singapore. She was already with Marina Bay Sands when she decided to have a family. Liway and children went back to the Philippines in 2017 which eventually brought her to Hann Casino Resort as an executive, the new Director of Gaming.
Liway’s passion for her job is evident and contagious. She takes pride in her work and her accomplishments. Being a mom never stopped her from pursuing her career goals. Liway is a self-proclaimed Wonder Mom who embraces the role of juggling work and parenting. For her, a Wonder Mom can do multiple things at the same time, from taking care of the house, domestic duties, errands, to attending school activities to managing a male-dominated job. It is a daily balancing act, daily commitment but she handles it with grace.
Liway’s mother, who is now 76 years old, is her inspiration and support system. She shares that her mother has always been there for her, providing her with guidance, encouragement, and love. Her mother has also instilled in her the importance of perseverance and hard work, values that she holds dear and would pass on to her own daughters.
Liway remains committed to providing her children with all the emotional, physical, and financial support they need. She believes that being a mom is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. She cherishes every moment spent with her family. For her, motherhood is a lifelong journey, and her ultimate desire is to see her children thrive and become independent adults.
This Mother’s Day, let’s celebrate Hann Wonder Moms like Liway, who has embraced all the highs and lows; who inspires us to be the best version of ourselves, as parents and as professionals.
