From janitor to millionaire, how did Pampanga's 'Parol King' do it?

Broadcast journalist Karen Davila details the story of how a former janitor and OFW became one of the country’s biggest suppliers of Christmas lanterns this Wednesday (Dec 4) on ABS-CBN’s “My Puhunan.”

Three years after working in Saudi Arabia, Rolando Quiambao decided to put up RolRen’s Lanterns in 1986. With just P300, he made his very first parol and sold it for P450.

Rolando’s creativity has set his products apart from the others. In fact, he was named a “hall of famer” in Pampanga’s Giant Lantern Festival for winning the competition four years in a row. RolRen’s has also become one of the country’s biggest parol suppliers, and has ventured into exporting products in the US and Europe.



The episode also shows singer-actor Sam Milby touring Karen in his authentic German restaurant in Bonifacio Global City and showing off his cooking skills.
