PIA MAGALONA’S take on the #Lugaw issue.
“Yes, food is political, but not just because of the reason you’re connecting this dish to the Vice President. It’s political, because whatever it is you’re eating didn’t just magically appear in front of you. It took several steps, and groups of people, plus years of culture to reach your table. Think about it.
“There’s a brouhaha on social media due simply to the lack of understanding of one barangay official who decided on their own that lugaw isn’t food. Delivery of FOOD, in the IATF guidelines is in fact stated as exempt from curfew, among other essentials. The case for lugaw = food = essential has now snowballed and reached all corners of society.
“The Dept of Interior and Local Govt (DILG) got in on the matter as well. Instead of putting it to rest by correcting the misunderstanding regarding food as an essential, they typically chose to make it about Leni Robredo, although the incident had NOTHING to do with her. They arrogantly clarified that they were serious when they said, “si lugaw is not essential, pero ANG lugaw is essential.” It was an actual slight toward the Vice President, obviously referred to as “si Lugaw,” because of her OPERATION LUGAW feeding programs.
“As expected, even if EVERYONE can AGREE that the delivery of the lugaw was indeed legit, this mockery has now again caused dissent between the factions. BUT, then again! We could turn this for the better, as a huge number of us are hoping that the furor will remain to ignite the spirit within us.
“Jesus promised us that after He had died, risen again, and ascended to Heaven, God would send the Holy Spirit to live inside His people. Reflect on that.
“Let’s be steadfast in our desire for the change we all seek. Demand better!”

“SOON TO OPEN 💃🏽💋 Finally sharing with you my lifelong DREAM COMING TRUE 😭🤗
“THIS IS where ABCD PROD and DIMPLES ROMANA SCHOOL for ACTING and PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT Headquarters will rise 🥰🤗
“The past five years I’ve been quietly coaching and teaching some younger actors with their craft questions which gave me the idea that maybe this is the way the Lord was leading me to a new path He’d like for me to take.
“For years I have been thinking of how I can give back to the industry that has been kind and generous to me over the years, i knew I always wanted to TEACH, to SHARE what I know that has been working for me and my family now. Finding the balance between having a STEADY, STABLE and CONCRETE career and a PEACEFUL, HAPPY and STRONG family life.
“I wish everyone that. And so I wanted to put up a school, a business that will give way and open doors of opportunities to many aspiring actors and actresses/hosts and artists like me to be able to create a path that’s unique and true to them and what they already have, develop new skills, hone what their talents and continue to learn even more. We plan to invite my co actors, my mentors who I honor and learned from these past years, who now chooses to pass on their legacy through teaching, and share the same initiative and are now limited to working because of age restrictions, limited production opportunities and some because they’re unable to shoot for now because of health reasons – TO TEACH with us.
“Our new school will teach of techniques in acting, hosting and branding of oneself that I have personally developed over 24 years in showbiz. Our school will be open to aspiring artists, actors, actresses, hosts, brand ambassadors AND ALSO to non media related students because as my professor in New York University now , Sir Marc have said, we should all know how to market ourselves.
“So even in the corporate world, it’s vital that we know how to present and market ourselves to reach our goals. And with that in mind, we will also open personality development classes to corporate individuals and companies 😘 And because everything is ONLINE for now, students from the Philippines and EVERY PART of the world are welcome 😘 classes for ages 6 – 65 😘 🤗 For more information, EMAIL us at firstname.lastname@example.org ☺️ Excited to get to know you and work with you on how you can reach your full potential ☺️
Talk about giving back! Dimples has beensuch an earth angel to a lot of people eversince.
