Adding another blessing to the already long list of trusted brands she has been endorsing through the years, Dimples Romana proudly shared why she did not hesitate to accept being the face of Generika Drugstore starting this month.

“I am not the type who would say yes to an endorsement unless I believe and share the message of the brand. Kasi yung mga nag-fa-follow sa akin at sumusuporta sa akin, sinusuportahan nila ako mula nung 12 pa lang ako. At gusto ko alam nila na importante sa akin na alam ko yung mensaheng inilalabas ko palagi.

In the 25 years that I have been in this industry, dito na rin ako lumaki at nakita ko na ring ganun sa mahaba at steady at masaya na mabunga at maginhawa klase ng karera sa industriya natin ay respeto. If you respect yourself enough, if you respect the people you work with enough, yung respetong para sa lahat, you will be able to experience that kind of love,” she shared during the Ginhawang Generika virtual mediacon.

The 37-year-old actress, who was last seen in the series Viral Scandal earlier this year, said she has not only been blessed with a steady stream of projects and endorsements, but a trusted circle of genuine friends in showbiz as well.

“Napaka-blessed ko hindi lang sa mga proyekto kundi pati sa trabaho at pati sa mga kaibigan sa trabahong ito. Hindi tuloy ako makapaniwala dun sa sinasabing mahirap makahanap ng mga kaibigang sa industriyang ito kasi hindi ko yun na-experience. 

“Grabe magmahal yung mga kaibigan ko. Parang walang [patid] na pagmamahal, walang pinipili. Talagang napakalalim ng pagmamahal at pagsasamahan ng mga nakasama ko. Kaya in the same way, with all of my brand families and now Generika joining that roster, I apply the same purpose, the same messaging, the same kind of care and respect that I have not just for one of my brand families but for all,” she shared.

Last June 7, Angel Locsin and Bea Alonzo surprised the soon-to-be mom with a baby shower. Dimples admitted it was one of the most unforgettable moments for her and her family.

“Sa totoo lang nahihiya ako kasi gumagastos sila. Alam mo ba busing busy yung mga yan pero kung sino pa ang mga pinaka busy, sila pa yung mga aligaga. Nung nag gender reveal party kami, we didn’t call it a baby shower party because I discouraged giving gifts.

“Sabi ko simple lang naman yung kailangan ng baby ko at kahit papano meron na naman kami nun sa bahay. Pag tatlo na kasi yung nanak mo, hindi mo na gusto ng maraming gamit.

“Sa totoo nahihiya din ako kasi pandemya ngayon ay ayoko talaga nakaka-receive ng mga regalo kung maaari. Kaya alam nila yan. Ang cute nga nila Angel at Bea kasi ang ginawa nila mga libro ang pina-gift nila kasi kilala na nila ako. Pero hindi kasi sila ganun bilang kaibigan. Yung pagmamahal nila tunay, yung bukal sa loob nila, yung masaya talaga sila na masaya ako at napapasaya nila yung pamilya ko.

“And to be honored by such big stars like themselves, up until this moment I couldn’t believe na itong mga kaibigan kong ito, they really take the time to make me happy and to honor my child. At pangatlong anak ko na ito ha! They have been doing this ever since,” she admitted.

The Generika Drugstore celebrity ambassador also revealed why Angel and Bea will always be family to her.

“Si Bea is actually the ninang of Callie. Imagine niyo ganun na katagal kaming magkaibigan. Si Gel ay ninang naman ni Alonzo. So kung tutuusin pag inisip mo, hindi nila kailangan gawin ito kay Elio. But they still did. Because that is what family would do for one another. Paginhawain ang buhay mo.

“Yang mga kaibigan kong yan, ang tagal tagal na sa industriya. Kung iisipin mo napakabait ng mga kaibigan ko, nag-baby shower sila. Lahat sila andudun. Yung iba lang hindi nakarating kasi uso ngayon ang lock-in. So a lot of ninongs and ninangs were not able to come because for safety protocols as well,” she explained. 

In her Instagram post after her baby shower, Dimples wrote about how grateful she was for her friendship with the two actresses.

“To say that my life is filled with so much LOVE, that my family is blessed to have the BEST PEOPLE around us would be an understatement. Kagabi, when I came in the room, I couldn’t make up exactly what I was seeing, (Wala din ako suot na contact lens kaya nearly blind ako ) what I thought was a brand shoot turned out to be one of the most beautiful surprises ever to happen in my life. Thanks to the whole team , with the special kunchabahan of my most treasured girls @therealangellocsin @beaalonzo @whengcorpuz @alan_m_real and of course @papaboyetonline 

Those close to me know I would’ve cherished even just a simple phone call. A text would do it for me

“I’m not one who would ask for more, nor would I want anything beyond anyone would so willingly extend to me. I was never the one to ask for anything special. A genuine friendship that I can rely on in times of loneliness and defeat would be more than enough for me.

“But somehow, the heavens decided to GIVE me more than what I deserve. Real friendships. The kind I can come HOME to, friends who take the time to be with me and my family to honor our milestones. I mean, how many of us can really say that about our lives, right?

“I LIVE for LOVE that goes beyond what is expected. I CRAVE relationships that withstand the test of time. And just like what I said last night, apart from the usual THANK YOUs that I know would never suffice to express just how grateful I feel. A great family isn’t made up of perfect wives, husbands, not of perfect parents, what makes a GREAT FAMILY is having people like our friends and families who LOVE us beyond our imperfections, celebrate us and our many quirks. Those who lift us up and make our light shine even brighter.

“My friends truly are the biggest stars in the universe not just because they are famous and respected in what they do, but ultimately because THEY KNOW HOW TO SHARE THEIR LIGHT to people like me who need a little bit more push in finding my own brightness each and every time. So cheers to those of you like my dearest @therealangellocsin @beaalonzo who continue to make others shine brightly by sharing their own light. Love you all beyond words  Elio is well LOVED ”

Dimples is scheduled to give birth in July.
