Marie Claire Lim Moore, author of “Don’t Forget the Soap” will be launching and signing her book at Chapters Metrotown in Burnaby on August 6th, 2014 and on Au­gust 7th at the Book Warehouse in Vancouver. These launchings follow similar events held in New York, Manila and Singapore re­cently.

    However, the Vancouver events will be special to Claire as she was born and spent her ear­ly years here. This event will be an opportunity to meet a highly accomplished Filipina who has established herself as a woman leader in the world of banking and as a successful author. The follow­ing contain excerpts from a review published about the author and her book.

    About the Book “Don’t Forget the Soap” is a heart warming family memoir through which Marie Claire (“Claire”) Lim Moore shares tips about find­ing balance between career and motherhood, having gratitude and giving back. The book describes how a combination of her Filipino upbringing, her United Nations exposure, Ivy League education and reminders from her mother, helped this Global Filipina banking executive able to climb the corpo­rate ladder while keeping her feet on the ground. In “Don’t Forget the Soap,” Claire shares how she was able to travel and work around the world as part of her job, while raising her children, participate in Filipino community fund-raising activities and write. She gains rec­ognition for all her achievements while being able to keep her ego in place and her heart at home, something that is almost impos­sible to accomplish these days if not for the secrets that she is shar­ing through her book.
