MANILA -- Actress Dimples Romana on Wednesday shared that she finally fulfilled her dream to have her own commercial building.
In an Instagram post, Romana shared her photo in front of her 3-storey building in Parañaque.
"Today is a very special day. After months of construction of our very first commercial property, na-bless na! Last year, binibiro ko si Lord, Sabi ko, 'Lord, building na lang po ang wala kami.' Naalala ko ang Diyos ang tunay na nakakaalam ng puso natin. You may be judged, talked about, pulled down but He is the only one who knows your true intentions and your heart. And He will bless you accordingly," Romana wrote in the caption.
Romana said that everything is possible if you really work hard.
"In my years as an actress, I have learned to find contentment in being able to work continuously, I didn’t mind mapa-isa man or maraming eksena ko sa trabaho, bida o kontrabida, big or small role, okay lahat sa 'kin. I valued my work the same way I valued my family. I gave it the same nurturing, the same love and the same respect. Ngayong araw ang patunay na ang mga pangarap ay naabot basta masipag ka, marangal, mabuti sa kapwa at maraming dasal," she added.
According to Romana, her building is now up for lease or sale.
This is not the first property investment for the actress. In another post, she said she has previously invested in 2 condos, 4 homes (including one for her mother), a beachfront property in El Nido, Palawan, a farm and vacation home in Alfonso, Cavite, and a mango and avocado farm in Calaca, Batangas.
"Lahat ng ito sinimulan namin 16 years ago, nung bago pa lang kaming mag-asawa," she said.
Romana, who is one of the lead stars of the hit Kapamilya series "Kadenang Ginto," said she hopes to inspire others to have more faith in God.
"Hindi ako nahihiya to share this with you all because I know in my heart that all this would not have been possible if not for the many times my husband and I have held on, kept our faith and took the leap and waited for the net to appear. And boy did the net appear not only with a few fish but plenty," she said.
"So to all the families out there who are dreaming of more for your families, just keep going. Tuloy lang ang laban, kahit na mahirap, kahit na parang imposible, kahit na pa-give up na kayo. We are always tested the hardest when something great is about to be given to us!" she continued.
