She is the kind of best friend who always says the right words in every situation. Dimples Romana often plays the on-screen confidante who undoubtedly knows how to pacify and solve problems using her convincing and reliable prowess.
She never needed to shout to be heard. She only needed to speak her heart out in order for Basha (Bea Alonzo) and Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) to realize that they both needed heartbreak; and for Burn (Gerald Anderson) to wake up that real love is stronger than any form of perfect love.
And in celebration of her birthday today, November 13, let us go back and reflect on Dimples' best advice in movies.
"All My Life"
"Sam, kahit saan ka pa magtago imposibleng walang maapektuhan dahil may mga taong nagmamahal sa’yo."
Dimples is Aga Muhlach's best friend, business partner, and cousin rolled into one in the movie "All My Life" also starring Kristine Hermosa.
"One More Chance"
"Bash, you know me. If kaya pang ayusin, pipilitin. But if this is really what both of you need then just be strong. Magiging mahirap at masakit pero hopefully all the pain would be worth it."
"Don't you see it? Kung hindi niya pinili ang sarili niya, kung hinayaan niya na ikaw pa rin parati ang masunod, her heart would have been broken every moment she's with you. Hanggang wala nang matira dun sa Bashang minahal mo. 'Yon ba talaga ang gusto mo, Poy?"
Dimples is Krizzy in the John Lloyd-Bea cult classic. She was the voice who put sense to Basha and Popoy's extremely dramatic break up.
"A Second Chance"
"Bash, alam kong masakit 'yung ginawa niya but you have to talk to him. The truth is you love him. Kaya kung nahihirapan kang pagkatiwalaan siya, pagkatiwalaan mo muna yung pagmamahal mo sa kanya."
What can I say, Krizzy is the pambansang best friend who we all need until our next lifetime!
"My Perfect You"
"Burn, we can't be Abi. Hindi ko alam kung paano ka pasasayahin. Pero kung ano 'yung pagmamahal na binibigay niya tatapatan ko. Because my love for you will never be perfect but it's real."
Happy birthday, Dimples!
