Dimples Romana masayang naaabot na ng anak ang kanyang pangarap



Nararamdaman ng aktres na si Dimples Romana na ang lahat ng kanyang pagsisikap ay nagbubunga na nang makita niya ang kanyang anak na si Callie na patungo sa pagkamit ng kanyang mga pangarap na maging isang piloto.

Ipinahayag ito ni Romana matapos makita ang mga larawan ni Callie na nagpapalipad ng eroplano; pagkauwi niya noong nakaraang gabi nang mag-shoot siya ng mabibigat na eksena kasama sina Jake Cuenca at direktor na si Joel Lamangan.

“Kaya pag pagod ka at ganito makikita mo sa umaga, Aba namaaaan! Sisipagin ka talaga magtrabaho eh,” aniya sa pamamagitan ng kanyang Instagram account nitong Agosto 4.

Napansin din ni Romana kung gaano kaganda ang kanyang anak sa mga larawan; gayundin kung paanong si Callie ay 18 taong gulang pa lamang habang tinutupad ang kanyang mga pangarap bilang piloto.

Ibinahagi din ng aktres na noong 10 years old si Callie, tinanong niya si Romana kung bakit nagsusumikap pa rin silang mag-asawang si Boyet sa kabila na mayroon na silang sapat na pera.

“I told her, time will come and you’ll realize that no matter how prepared you think you are for the future, we must still strive to work hard to make sure that all our kids will be provided for – not just with what they need but also with what they’ll CHOOSE to be when they get to college,” sabi ng aktres. “[Boyet, that] our kids won’t ever be pressured to ever put their other siblings to school, that’s on us as parents.”

Ganyan talaga ang mga magulang; iba ang saya kapag ang mga pangarap ng kanilang mga anak ay naaabot!

“All the many days and nights I had to be apart from them meant [my eldest daughter] gets to freely choose what she wants to be, and the many times I miss her from not being there because of shoots and tapings meant, [she] will get to do what she loves and that is -FLYING and BECOMING A PILOT,” dagdag pa niya.

“[And] thanks to [Boyet] and our home angels for making sure the kids ARE alright.”

Rewind: Lydia De Vega’s ‘Medalyang Ginto’ 1982 Movie, ‘Dedicated to my Countrymen’




The Philippine track and field legend Lydia de Vega, ‘Asia’s fastest woman in the 80’s,  has returned to our Creator at the age of 57.

This piece of very heartbeaking news was announced by De Vega’s daughter, Stephanie Mercado de Koenigswarter, through a Facebook post on the evening of August 10.

Eleven days after  Lydia’s tracheotomy and paracentesis, the ‘Sprint Queen’ bade her last farewell. It was the Lord’s will to free her from pain and  suffering after battling beast cancer for four years.


The legendary Lydia De Vega was a native of Meycauayan City, Bulacan. She earned the tagline as Asia’s fastest woman and became more popular as she was a budding beauty.

She became even more popular as she wins gold after gold throughout her career in the 1980s and early ’90s. She won 15 gold medals, including the 100-meter race in the 1982 and 1986 Asian Games and the 100- and 200-meter sprint double in the Asian Athletics Championship in 1983 and 1987.

She won a total of nine golds and a silver in the 100- and 200-meter races, along with the 400-meter and the long jump in five Southeast Asian Games. Certainly a sports icon and truly deserving of a spot in ou Philippine History.



On July 28, Video 48 posted a REWIND post about the sports icon’s one and only movie.

“REWIND: Did you know that in 1982, sports hero and Asia’s sprint queen Lydia de Vega starred in a movie, “Medalyang Ginto” portraying herself, as the blurb says “the film about her controversial life— her sacrifices, her triumph against odds, her emergence as an international champion!” “This picture will make you proud that you are a Filipino,” it says.

“Ms. de Vega is back in the news again, this time in a sad note, as she is battling cancer and she needs our help, our prayer!”

“Medalyang Ginto”

Millennials probably aren’t aware that our ‘Sprint Queen’ starred in her own life story movie.

Yes, Lydia de Vega portrayed herself in this 1982  film “Medalyang Ginto”  which was produced under All-Star Films and directied by Romy Suzara. The film tackled her controversial life, her sacrifices, her triumph against challenges, as well as her emergence as an international champion; a true inspiration to the Filipinos.

Together with Lydia in the film are (late) Tony Santos, Sr., Perla Bautista, Joseph Sytangco, and Dave Brodett.

Lydia’s father was the late Francisco’ Tatang’ De Vega (portrayed by the late Tony Santos, Sr), a policeman whose rigid coaching turned her into becoming our country’s most successful and most popular female track and field athlete.

Lydia, who was among a brood of ten, first found her talent for sprinting when she was only 12. Her career spanned 17 years and to date, she remains the ‘Sprint Queen’ as no one has ever reached her track records.

Meanwhile, the Facebook page Ang Tubong Meycauayan shared this tribute post to the Hall of Famer Lydia De Vega:
