To my first born, the reason why I am called a mom, having you gave my life more meaning. I am who I am because of you. When I had you I was young and clueless, but you made the journey of being a mother so easy and fun. I never knew what I was capable of until you came into my life. Thank you for being an easy child, kind, loving, carefree and super lambing. For making me feel that I was always enough for you. 9 years of being an only child gave us so much memories and adventures together. And now God thinks we are ready to have another company. I know you will be a wonderful kuya to your baby sister being the kind, good and selfless soul that you are. Our adventures shall continue with a little one in tow and daddy by our side. I love you, son. More than words can ever say. ❤️ #emosunday #maybeitsmyhormones #2moremonths 📸 @niceprintphoto @theconceptroomstudio Lovely pink dress by @joesanantonio

@SMILECaresFoundation is grateful to have our first partner for the first program component, YES PINOY FOUNDATION, led by its chairman, Dingdong Dantes. We found ourselves a natural ally in terms of our advocacy to empower youth through EDUCATION (SCF) and ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS (YPF). With our partnership, the program "YES TO FULL STEAM AHEAD", in #Siargao, will emphasize on the importance of #STEAM in shaping up a generation that will steward a GREENer future, our program aims to create livelihood opportunities in the community using their natural resources in a sustainable manner. The selection of out of school youth is fitting because we wanted to show that #steam is for everyone, going back to what our foundation strongly believes, that 💡 POVERTY SHOULD NOT BE A BARRIER FOR GREAT IDEAS 💡and that the potential of OSYs to contribute to a sustainable future is huge! 💯 #SMILECaresFoundation #YESPinoyFoundation #YPFxSCFLaunch #YPFxSCF 🌈 Cheeeers! To 3 ...turned 30 years of walang bawiang partnership 🤝🙏👏✅💡💚
Ella - Serena Dalyrmple
Serena Dalrymple, who played Ella in the series, was one of the biggest child stars in showbiz in the ‘90s. But the former actress decided to leave showbiz and go to the United States to continue her studies. In an interview with PUSH two years ago, Serena revealed the reason behind her departure from the entertainment industry. “Marami akong reasons for leaving showbiz and Philippines. One of the biggest reasons was during the time na wala ako masyadong projects, and I realized na I can’t rely on just my acting career I need a back-up plan, eventually my back-up plan became my priority. I chose studies over acting,” she said.
Today, Serena is a successful manager in New York City. She is currently working at Viacom, a leading global entertainment content company in the Big Apple. She has also been travelling around the US based on her Instagram updates.
